For Hinduism the chakras are seven energy centers found in the human body. The term chakra means wheel or circle, and it was used since ancient times to name those seven energy centers that are complemented by several secondary chakras that correspond to the acupuncture points, each of them associating with the different endocrine glands of our body.
The chakras extend through the energy field that surrounds the physical body, a field composed of successive energy layers that vibrate at different frequencies. Each of these centers has its own functions, but in general their mission is to revitalize each aural or energy body.

Jewelry design and energy
A large part of jewelry design contemplates the incorporation of gems or precious stones, to give a greater economic and aesthetic value to the piece. But a new purpose motivates jewelry designers to use these precious stones in their jewelry designs and is none other than contributing to the health of the physical body, mental and emotional of any person.
Many therapists of the well-known complementary and alternative medicine (acupuncture, reiki, chiropractic) after determining the patient’s condition recommend use of a stone determined according to their energetic properties.
People who undergo this type of therapy consider that the best way to use this stone is to wear a design jewel that contains it, whether rings, earrings, bracelets or pendants.
