Gemstones have healing energies and you can benefit from those energies when worn on your body
Smokey quartz is prized for its perceived ability to ward off stress while promoting tolerance and resolve in difficult situations. It is thought to be a protective stone, with a strong association with the earth and base chakras, making it ideal for environmental consciousness.

Grey Banded Agate is a stone that offers strength, protection, and solid grounding ability.
Physical Energy Properties: Agate helps to relieve fatigue, malaise and myalgic encephalomyelitis. It is good for the release of stored energy.
Emotional Energy Properties: Grey Banded Agate releases negative influences or jealous thoughts. Considered a soothing and calming stone, it works slowly to bring about strength. Its multiple layers can bring hidden information to light.
Snow quartz is just that: quartz that looks pure and fresh as snow. It is sometimes referred to as ''quartzite,'' ''white quartz'' or ''milk quartz.'' Quartz is the most common mineral on Earth, and white is its second most common color.
But there's nothing common about the beauty and versatility of snow quartz beads. Gold prospectors know of its value. When they go out prospecting for gold, they keep their eyes peeled for snow quartz, because the gold they want is so often attached to it.
Other than jewelry, snow quartz is often seen sliced into countertops, decorative tile and other home decor options.
Snow quartz and innocence are nearly synonymous, which is why wearing it is said to help us look at things from a child-like perspective, without preconceived or cynical notions. This calm and soothing stone is held to be useful for meditation, with all the properties of clear quartz, yet gentler.
Practitioners of crystal healing techniques advocate it as cleansing stone, used for purification on the spiritual level and boosting the immune system on the physical level. Some adherents believe this version of quartz aids lactation in new mothers.
This stone has been affiliated with the crown chakra. It is believed to reduce stubbornness in Capricorns, intolerance in Geminis and the need for power in Leos.
