Archaeologists have found evidence of gemstones being used for healing as far back at the fourth millennium B.C., in cultures from China to Sumeria to Greece.

Blue lace agate, for example, brings grace and lightheartedness, while yellow-green prehnite is a talisman for the wearer. Also includes smoky quartz, carnelian, and apatite.
