Many people choose to carry small crystals with them but why not create your own gemstone jewellery that you can wear instead? Each gemstone is thought to hold different healing properties - find the perfect gemstone for your travels below and learn how they can help guide you on your adventures.
Crystals have been used for thousands of years, with ancient people using them for magical and spiritual powers. Crystals are believed to hold vibrational energy and believed to transmit this energy to you and balance your emotional, physical and spiritual energies. Although there is no evidence to show that crystal healing works and is not a form of medicine, more and more people are being open to trying the possible benefits that crystals bring.
