Best Gemstones for Your Type

Best Gemstones for Your Type

According to the ancient Hindu system of Ayurveda, we each belong to a particular type, or dosha: fiery Pitta, airy Vata, or earthy Kapha. Our dosha gives us information about how to stay in balance, from the best colors to wear to the right foods to eat and more.

Gemstones have a venerable tradition as healing and spirit-nurturing presences. Once you know your dosha, you can find out which gemstone to wear or carry in order to promote your most vital health and balance. (You can also find out your friendsí types: useful information when you go birthday shopping!)

First, take the fun quiz to learn your dosha, then find out the gemstones that resonate for you. Itís all here:
