Dear Steve Thanks for sharing the info. on the chakras and the
various gemstones from your friend. I market one of the lines of
jewelry that I produce as “fine jewlery to enhance your energetic
presence,” so I find this kind of stuff useful for my customers, and
(this being my 30th year practicing Kundalini yoga) interesting for
myself. Could you possibly ask her the source of this info. she
shared. Thanks and best regards, Jot S. Khalsa, Millis, MA USA

Hello Jot I have been selling gemstones for years to the East Indian
community here. I was taught much by a beloved friend who did Indian
astrology and prayers before he passed away a couple of years ago.

These two books I found to be a real help, especially as I needed to
learn the Indian names of the stones to be able to sell them:
