Under My Skin
The power of gemstones
Powerful crystals and stones possess properties that could ward off negative energy, lift the spirit and facilitate healing—both the mind and body. Crystal healing or gemstone therapy is based on the idea that all matter is composed of energy, and crystals have energy that resonates with natural vibrations in the human body. In addition to providing mood- and health-boosting benefits, certain crystals and gemstones also have toning, firming and regenerative properties, too.

Precious Stones from Serifos Island
Serifos is part of the archipelago of the Cyclades.
A fascinating place, with traditional ways and rular installations in its hinterland. Nature has endowed it with wonderful beaches, abundant streams and springs, rich earth that nurtures citrus trees, vines – from which the delicious red wine is produced- herbs and aromatic bushes, and a singularly intriguing subsoil with rare and semiprecious minerals and metals.
It’s geometry is defined by the primitive terraces, that convert barren land into cultivable. These “stone- traces”, following the flares of the site, the sea, the countless stone walls and the paths, give to the landscape its special character. Traces of mining to exploit this wealth are scattered over most of the island, creating a scenic effect beyond compare. All these elements, combined with Serifos continuous presence of the stage of history from Mycenaean times to the day, make it unique in the Aegean Sea and in Greece in general.
