About This Quiz

Did you know that there is a way to supplement your diet without taking pills or eating undesirable foods?  For many, just having certain crystals around the house can help influence your well-being as well as well as bringing a bit of nature into the home in a fun and colorful way. 

One of the newer home décor items to hit the market were Himalayan pink salt lamps.  With their minimalistic appearance, these lamps can bring a subtle warmth to any room in the house.  Not only that, but there are some health benefits to using one as well: when the salt gets warmed, it releases negatively charged ions into the room, which helps filter pollutants from the air.  So not only do you have a nice new lamp, you can breathe better!

Wearing crystals or stones while you are out and about doing your everyday activities can help boost your health while looking fashionable at the same time.  Wearing a piece of hematite jewelry will help in all sorts of situations. Because it is an iron-based stone, it can have a little bit of a magnetic charge.  It is believed that this charge can help with blood flow.  And with its polished and solid appearance, one glance at hematite can help you regain focus on tasks at hand. 

We’ve pulled together several crystals and stones to quiz you on their healing properties.  Do you think you can rock it?  One way to find out!
