Chakras are energy centres in our body in which energy flows through in balance with each other. An unbalanced energy field may cause a blockage in the flow of energy. Different colours are related to each chakra, and therefore you can adapt stones to the chakra according to the colour of the crystal to help with each energy point.
108 The number 108 is considered a sacred number in Hinduism, Buddhism and yogic tradition. Malas or Japa beads come in a string of 108 and are used for devotional meditation, mantra and prayer. With each bead a mantra or prayer is repeated to meet a total of 108. The Meru bead is the larger bead or tassel on the mala and is not part of the 108. This is the guiding bead and marks the beginning and end of the mala/chant/prayer/mantra.

RUDRAKSHA SEEDS The 'Rudraksha' seed is produced from the Elaeocarpus ganitrus tree, believed to have healing powers. The name Rudraksha stems from Hindu mythology and means "the tears of Lord Shiva." The word Rudraksha is derived from two words - rudra (रुद्र) and aksha (अक्ष). It is believed that when Shiva went into deep meditation on the well-being of all creatures, he emerged crying tears of compassion. When these tears fell upon the earth they took the form of seeds that grew into the Rudraksha tree. These trees are mostly found in the tropical and sub-tropical areas of Nepal and the Himalayan slopes, Indonesia and Malaysia. By wearing the mala against the skin, it is believed to increase the ability to concentrate, giving clarity and peace of mind, improve memory and relieve stress and anxiety.
