Tourmaline (Red Stones)
Studies have shown that ceramics can be ground into powder and emit FAR infrared energy. When this powder is heated by our core body temperature or external heat sources, such as sunlight, it releases FAR infrared light. This ceramic element of the bracelet is made from tourmaline, often called “the electric stone”. Tourmaline is a semi-precious gemstone that has electrical properties.Holistic practitioners refer to tourmaline as a healing stone and have used it for thousands of years to balance energies.
Germanium (Black Stones)
Germanium is classified as a semi-metal and contains electrons constantly moving alongside the outer rim of the atom. These four electrons are negatively charged. Once the temperature of Germanium rises above 32 degrees Celsius (90F), it will shed one negatively charged electron and attract another from another atom in the environment. This is beneficial as it will constantly emit beneficial negative ions. We are exposed to positive ions from EMF radiation emitted by technology (smartphones, routers etc.), electronic equipment, chemicals, and pollutants. The negative-charge ions from Germanium will add more beneficial negative ions into your immediate environment.
Negative Ions (White Stones)
Negatively charged ions are beneficial to overall wellbeing. With more and more positive ions being released into our environments from ubiquitous sources such as WIFI and cellular networks it could be important to have more negative ions in your immediate environment.
Our Harmonising bracelet has been infused with small neodymium magnets (NdFeB). Neodymium magnets are a type of rare earth magnet which is very strong in relation to its size. Cleopatra and Queen Elizabeth 1 were thought to have used these magnets for better well-being. Magnets for wellness have been used for thousands of years by humans for wellness purposes. The earliest record is from over 100,000 years ago! Magnets should always be approached with caution. Magnets may interfere with these devices if you wear a pacemaker or insulin pump.
Titanium is an excellent option for people sensitive to wearing jewellery as it is softer on the skin. When combined with germanium, it helps to retain body heat. When designing the Harmonising Bracelet, we used titanium mixed with stainless steel.
