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.
