Details the powerful effects of gems as an alternative therapy for physical, psychological, and spiritual healing

• Reveals the physical, healing, and astrological properties of over 70 minerals, along with instructions for maintaining and recharging their powers

• Examines the “life” energy of stones, their basic vibratory patterns, and how this energy is used therapeutically to treat various disorders

• Shows how to use gems in color therapy and to harmonize the chakras

Gemstones have been used for both therapeutic and spiritual purposes since the beginning of time and in all traditions. Used properly, they can contribute to and accelerate healing through the practice of lithotherapy, which uses gems and minerals to restore enzymatic functions, and they can energize spiritual development. Alternative medicines such as homeopathy have given prominence to the therapeutic character of certain minerals, but the use of gemstones in expanding awareness or establishing a holistic, energetic connection with the stone itself have scarcely been brought forward. In this reclaiming of ancient wisdom, Florence Mégemont explores the many potent and beneficial dimensions of the mineral world.

Over 70 precious and semiprecious stones are inventoried as to their principal deposits, therapeutic applications, and zodiac correspondences. Readers will discover which physical and emotional disorders can be relieved by using which minerals and--with the application of chakra therapy--which gemstones are indispensable to their spiritual health. While not proposing that lithotherapy is a substitute for traditional allopathic treatment, Mégemont shows that it can be a powerful complement to it. Additionally, stones can act preventively, energizing both our health and spiritual resources to a state of balance and attunement.

ELIZABETH DIAS What has surprised you about the response to your newest book, Becoming Wise: An Inquiry Into the Mystery and Art of Living? Even in early 2016, people were so weary—sore inside. In the 24/7 news environment, people are bombarded with the same story of what is catastrophic and corrupt and failing 25 times before lunch. They start to internalize that not as news but as the norm. An effect I see on people in conversations that came up around the book is, there are actually so many beautiful, generative things happening in the world. How did America get to this place of such divi

The Grim Reality Of Russia's Health Care System

It was late at night when Hanna Rún, a 26-year-old ballroom dancing champion from Iceland, woke up with searing chest pains in Penza, a city some 400 miles southeast of Moscow. Alarmed by her worsening condition, her Russian in-laws did what anyone else would do—they called an ambulance. Rún would soon wish they hadn’t. After an ambulance ride down potholed roads, Rún was placed in a hospital ward with moldy walls, filthy sheets and screaming nurses who crudely administered an intravenous drip. In the hospital’s corridors, patients sat or lay on grimy floors. But it was the hospital’s restroom

A Synthetic History

Diamond Foundry’s high-tech process is poised to bring lab-grown diamonds to the masses—but it’s hardly the first upstart to bet on manufacturing fine jewels. 1945: LAB-GROWN GEMSTONES ARE BORN Caltech grad Carroll F. Chatham’s San Francisco–based Chatham Created Gems & Diamonds pioneered commercial-scale lab-grown gemstones—rubies, emeralds, and sapphires. Today, Chatham’s son runs the company, which began manufacturing colored diamonds in the 1980s. 1990: DIAMONDS BUILT FOR COMPUTING Robert Linares, a Bell Labs PhD with an expertise in crystal-growth technology, founded Boston-based Apol
