Stones worn as pendants, medallions or necklaces play an important protective role for the entire body, stronger even than rings, earrings, brooches, because they are placed on the projection area of the central energetic channel (Sushumna Nadi), where the chakras are located.
Bracelets worn around the left hand (which develops a Yin-type receptive, lunar, feminine polarity) enable the reception of beneficial energies of the universe, whereas if worn on the right hand (which develops a Yang-type solar, masculine, polarity), they enable the transmission of positive, curative energies.
The length of the chain is important.
Crystals hung on a chain at the base of the throat (in which case the pendant sits on the projection area of Vishuddha chakra) bears stronger effects on the communicational, creative plan, offering energy to the entire body and to the entire human aura.
Crystals hung on a chain between throat and heart has beneficial effects on a secret force center (Manas chakra) linked to certain altered stated of consciousness. Crystals placed near the heart (Anahata chakra) impacts stronger the sentimental, spiritual plan.
Crystals placed (in a pocket) right above the heart has stronger effects on the emotional plan.
Crystals should be kept in pouches made of natural fibers. Synthetic materials are contraindicated, since they are detrimental to crystals.
