At Gemondo we’re always hungry for new and interesting ways of looking at gemstones and jewellery.

So to quench our insatiable thirst we aimed to further educate ourselves on how gemstones have been used throughout the ages. One topic that always appears is the practice of chakra healing using crystals. So with open minds and hearts we attempt to learn a little more to see if we can harness the power of our beautiful gems.
