I really don't know about the metaphysical properties of the rocks. What I do believe in, is that rocks (and dirt) are imprinted in our DNA. Look back in time, and what artifacts do they find, stone artifacts! Where did all the different types of metals come from? From minerals, huh? Some of just seem to be more linked to the stone. Kind of like hunting seems to be imprinted in some people, or gardening or weaving or jewelry making or? Something there, is just passed down to us, in some way.

Yes it is a most beautiful stone and I have a few pieces that I dearly love. I think I am going to try some basic facetting on some too.

 I eaten dirt along with some crow but I know what you mean Dave:) It is funny how we are naturally drawn to some elements. I would rather have a good rock then almost anything. Well..... I can vaguely remember enjoying something else a long time ago but thats another story.....
And what about 30 million years from now there will be a bunch of dinosaurs/cats or even cat dinosaur sitting on their computers showing off the human bone they cabbed:)
I have determined from personal experience that cats will outlast all of us. LOL

Everything from our dining room table, hand tools, trees, rocks etc molocules vibrate. Each at their own rate.

I don't know how it has been determined wich rocks molecular vibrations best positively interact with our body/mind vibratory rates. In this case, I believe it must have something to do with how something like Labradorite works best towards stress.

With that in mind, maybe other things that have similar molecular vibrations could interact and ease stress in the same way ?

Kenesiology as an example... Holding a pack of cigarettes next to your heart while pushing or applying pressure to your arm. While holding the pack of cigs we are weaker.. Try the same thing with a banana or other fruit and we are stronger.

It would be a neat experiment to try kenesiology holding different minerals to see which of the minerals elements/vibrations agree with our bodies .

Make sense ?  dunno

Personally I don't believe in all that mumbo jumbo. But if you believe in something enough. I guess you can talk yourself into almost any thing. we are made up of the same basic mineral building blocks. Take out all the water & you're left with about .89 worth of minerals.

I believe, based on experience. Here my story, share if you got one.

When I was 14, I worked the weekends with my Dad as a day laborer for his patio business. One Saturday doing a realitvely small job. The customer wanted a Gulam beam. It was about 16 feet long. For those who donít know what a gulam bean is. It is a laminated wood beam, which mimics steal. They last forever when it comes to wood. They also tend to be extremely heavy, even at only 16 feet. This beam weighted in at roughly 3tons, 6000 pounds. 

Iím sure you can see were this is going; yes he dropped this beam on me while we were trying to set it. I took 6000 pounds to my right shoulder and stood my ground. I was always a big kid, and could always take allot. And we both thought we could set the beam. It only fell arms length, about 2 feet. Hence why I was able to stand my ground and it didnít crush me.  But it took me out of work for a couple weeks with him.

AS a growing young man, I brushed it off. 4 years later as a senior in high school. I began suffering pain in the eyes, and extreme migraines.  Tested through an MIR and found nothing wrong with my brain. Went to a chiropractor and from a basic x-ray, the problem is extremely evidant. But because I brushed it off, grew 4 more years I pretty much stuck with a bent spine. Its bends to the right, the direction in which they took the bront of the fall.  After 2 weeks with this guy, he managed to reverse the curvature of my spine.  I was starting to turn into a hunchback, and was begging to suffer early effects of nerve damage. At 20, I was almost in full hammer hand, and suffer extreme pain in both my arms and hands from the nerve damage. A second chiroprature was two brothers, close to work. Daily adjustments and electrolysis.
Well, that lasted rough 8 months before one of the brothers displaced one of my front ribs. Into my lungs. Was almost a lawsuit, but the other brother took care of me. And after I was able to understand how now I can popped this rib in an out anytime I want now. I decided I was about done with chiropractors.

This is when I started getting into the metaphysics of rocks and gems I was cutting all the time.  Believe it or not, there is a type of Condor agate I call Condor Fire jasper. Itís the type of super rich red and orange jasper type, with almost no translucent or agate layers. I began meditating and putting this certain piece under my pillow when I slept. Within 2 weeks, my hammer hand was beginning to relieve and the general pain from headaches/backaches/arms, and often a heavy blood vessel problem in the pinched area on the spine. All started to subside, but it wasnít a cure by no means. I then began reading more about energy transference, like Reiki and acupuncture.

I was then moved to a new store at my job, and guess what. Right next door was a chiropractor office. Ahh man, since I was still having adjustments problems from the first two. I figure it was worth investigation this doctor just for the connivance factor of him being right next door. But when I went it, I came to find out he was actually an Acupuncturist first, who also did adjustments for people. I explained my situ to him and what I was doing with the condor agate. He gave me one neck adjustment, then two weeks of Acupuncture to the arms, hands, brow, and neck areas.

He explained to me that the first two guys managed to tear me apart to the point that my bones will always been floating and problematic. Based also on the fact that I allowed myself to grow in the teenís years at the height of growth. I should have had surgery and one day still might need it.

But he further explained to me that the use of the agate was helping realigned my nervous system that was effected and not properly maintained by the first two groups I went to. My nerves were responsible for telling my muscles to crap up and get claw hand.  And were the only real source of any pain I was now experiencing.  And that over a period time he wouldnít know, the stone he believed would do what he was able to do in two weeks of acupuncture.  It was some of the most intense pain Iíve ever been trough.  The damaged from the accident was generally fixed before I got to him. But the nerves were still all confused and he had to reset them.  Funny thing is too, this guy was no stereo type of witch doctor. But a Harvard Medical school grad and Jewish. Not that matters, but just so folks reading this understand this is highly accepted form of medical practice. And his comments to the use of my stone was evident when that what he prescribed for me. More meditation with that stone.

I am now 34, have complete use of hands, no hunchback, no nerve damage. The Occasional back problem we all suffer with age.  Funny because I was very afraid when I started getting the claw hand. But now, I have cut more rocks, shaped more bread, and still learning claw hammer banjo. My dexterity is a bit off, that about it.

Amazing story Shain:) I believe the jasper helped heal you also.
If the earth was created so perfectly with everything we need to live and flourish, why would it also contain everything we need to be healed or cured:)

Artfire has been wonderful for me.  I started on etsy in August, didn't do much in sales till December there, then started to reach a steady pace.  But with all the drama and privacy issues (and cost of relisting on etsy) I decided to move to Artfire the last week of January.  I immediately picked up a pace of about a sale a day in February, which took me 6 months to get close to on etsy.  And it's a heck of a lot cheaper, and people are finding me through google.  It's slowed down a bit in the last week or so, but it's still moving along. 

Interesting points, Taogem....

When you get to Tucson, come over and let's give it a try.  I know a bit of kinesiology and have a few different rocks.

          HMM...........

  Mumbo jumbo- no there is science to the vibrations and energies made by stones- hence the quartz watch-  native americans used to plant green tourmalines in their crops to help the root structures. The breastplate of Aron contained a prescription of stones that when tested by modern methods was found to act as a grounding device.
  I was introduced to reiki when my mom picked up a golfball sized garnet encrusted in mica, pointed it in my direction and a shock , a strong one, went thru my body- my back was to her at the time.
  If anyone has had accupuncture and had electrodes attached to the needles, you know the feeling I am speaking of- she stood behind me and moved the stone around and I was able to tell her where it was by feel- freaky stuff

  Even tho rocks are inert, science tells us their molecules are not, thus each stone has a different make up and molecular movements at a different rate putting off different vibratory energies.

just my humble .02

I wonder if a good part of what you felt actually came from your Mom by way of the Garnet ?

Some what similar to how a crystal wand is used.

I'm a skeptic  when it comes to metaphysical/healing/powers attributes of rocks and minerals...just too much tom foolery and shenanigans out there taking advantage of people selling "mystic quartz", "Merlinium", "magical seed crystals" and the like to the gullible.  There maybe some truth to the beneficial qualities of different minerals, regarding vibrations, energies and the like,  but it's buried under mountains of BS and marketing make-believe. I can't deny that I have a natural affinity for rocks though!
