This bracelet is made with 8mm beads. Some of us are born into the Earth element: Virgo,Taurus and Capricorn. The stones in this bracelet help to draw in the earths energy, and they are malachite, hematite and green jade. The qualities of the earth-sign energies are sensuality, ambition and endurance. I have also included some lava stone for use with essential oils and aromatherapy.
