Chakra ManChakras – from a Sanskrit word meaning wheel – are centers of energy in the human body.

The seven main chakras – areas where major energy flows intersect –  are located between the top of the head and the base of the spine and are connected with the spinal column in an upward flow of energy.
The chakras control the organs and glands of the body and each of the seven main chakras relates to a specific area of the body. The flow of energy between the chakras can affect our physical health as well as our emotional feelings of wellbeing. 

When the chakras are clear and vitalized, each resembling a whirling centre of energy, the body is at its healthiest. However, when one of the chakras is not in harmony or a blockage occurs, this will hinder the flow of energy within that chakra and also between all the chakras, affecting other parts of the body.
It is thought that the positive vibration of gemstones can harmonize the chakras and allow the energy to flow freely. Different stones are thought to be more effective with each chakra, usually associated with the color of the stones. Some stones, like rock crystal (clear quartz), diamonds and sugilite, are considered to be helpful in clearing blockages in all the chakras.
