Gemstones Beneficial for Women
Feminine energy is distinctively different from its masculine counterpart – it is palpably softer devoid of any rough edges, is gentle and definitely more giving. There are quite a few gemstones in particular that agree more with the feminine energy system and definitely can aid in maintaining balance and keeping it healthy. Contrary to beliefs that have been generated by a suave marketing strategy, the Shastras-sacred texts do not advocate wearing of diamonds by women.
