Genuine semi-precious stones are used to make this Chakra pendant from India. Gemstones include garnet, light and dark citrine, aquamarine, peridot, iolite and amethyst. Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel. It refers to the energy centers found in the body. Most Eastern traditions describe seven major chakras positioned along the midline of the body from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. This pendant is sterling silver.
