Do gemstones have "powers"?
Can gemstones influence our moods, our health, our wealth, our lives?
For thousands of years man has been fascinated by the beauty and mystery of gemstones. Over the millenia, countless rare and beautiful stones have been turned into precious jewels as symbols of riches, power and love ... but it was because of the other "powers" of gemstones - those indefinable properties that were believed to produce magical or miraculous effects, to avert evil and bring good fortune - that they were worn as talismans and examined so intimately.
This booklet explores the fact and fantasy, the superstition and the
reality ... and lets the reader decide whether or not, with all the
technology and "sophistication" of modern man, gemstones can
influence our moods, our health, our wealth, our lives.
