Tiny Rituals: Healing with Crystals
Chakra bracelets have become increasingly popular in recent years, with many sellers touting their benefits for improving energy flow, reducing stress, and promoting overall wellbeing.
However, with the rise in popularity comes a flood of items that are NOT actually Chakra bracelets, despite having 7 colors, lol, making it difficult for consumers to identify genuine chakra bracelets.
In this article, we'll explore the 5 key elements to look for when identifying real chakra bracelets. We'll delve into the materials used, the design, and the seller's reputation, and the price... so you can be confident in your purchase and reap the benefits of a genuine chakra bracelet.
Whether you're a believer in chakra healing or simply curious about the trend, this guide will equip you with the knowledge to make an informed decision when shopping for chakra bracelets. So, let's unlock the truth and discover how to identify real chakra bracelets.
1. Examine the Materials Used In the Bracelet.
Check the quality of the materials used to make the chakra bracelet. Authentic bracelets are made from top-quality gemstone such as: lapis lazuli, amethyst, citrine, aventurine, quartz crystal, tiger’s eye, and other genuine gemstones - not plastic, not dyed, not all one stone. Simply having 7 colors is not enough.
Pay attention to metal material... is it made with pot metal, or brass, instead of Sterling Silver or 14K Gold Filled accents?
2. AVOID ANY CHAKRA BRACELETS WITH RECONSTITUTED "STONES".
Let’s start with RECONSTITUTED gemstone beads used for Chakra Bracelets that you often see at ridiculously cheap prices on marketplaces. How can they sell genuine gemstone bracelets so inexpensively? The truth is, they don’t.
So, what are they? “Reconstituted” is basically a “man made” bead. It is a term describing beads made from "stone powder" (eewww…– i.e. ground up left over low-grade stones bound together with an epoxy) The mix is then compressed into blocks and formed into beads. There are not actually gemstones. Do not be fooled with the term “Natural Stones” because they are made of ground up stone powder. They don’t vibrate to ANY number at all.
“Bluestone” and “Goldstone” are synthetic, man-made glass beads that do not vibrate to any number.
The exception to this is GENUINE SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL, because genuine crystal vibrates to the number 11, which is a Master healer, and aligns all Chakras.
3. AVOID CHAKRA BRACELETS WITH MADE UP STONE NAMES.
Unethical sellers who will entice you by calling their beads by PRECIOUS STONE NAMES, when in fact, they do not contain any of that mineral at all.
“Brazilian Ruby” “Brazilian Sapphire” which have no corundum at all, the main mineral in genuine precious stones. They may be reconstituted topaz and sold as “sapphire” It is illegal AND un-ethical to call any beads "emerald", "rubies", and "sapphire" that do not contain corundum. "Brazilian Sapphire, Emerald, and Ruby Beads" are just dyed inferior grade topaz. Jade is another often mis-leading term for green stones that contain no actual jade mineral. “Brazilian Jade” is usually dyed Quartzite. African Jade is also Quartz.
“Howlite Turquoise” is Howlite dyed blue. Howlite is a great healing stone, but its Howlite, its composition and vibration doesn’t change because its name or color did.
4. AVOID CHAKRA BRACELETS MADE WITH WOOD BEADS.
Although WOOD beads make a wonderful Rosary or Prayer Mala, they are not appropriate for Chakra Jewelry because wood all vibrates at the same number. Chakra Jewelry should not use man-made beads, reconstituted stones. or wood beads.
5. THE 7 STONES NEED TO BE A DIFFERENT MATERIAL, NOT JUST A DIFFERENT COLOR.
Chakra Jewelry should be made with SEVEN distinct gemstones beads that have not simply been dyed another color, reconstituted (glued together), or glass. Look for genuine stones. If it says “stone” but does not give you the names of EACH stone, chances are they are not genuine. Green Jade, Yellow Jade, Purple Jade, etc. all vibrate to the same number. You cant use more then ONE jade stone in an authentic Chakra Bracelet.
6. DOES THE SELLER TELL YOU THE NAMES OF THE STONES USED IN THE BRACELET?
Reputable jewelers are proud of their materials and will make sure you know exactly which stones you are receiving. There should be 7 different stones.
