Both of our Gua Sha stones, Rose Quartz and Amethyst, are 100% natural stones originally sourced from Brazil, carved and polished without any chemical treatment. If you look closely, each piece will have its own unique crystalline formation and hence there will never be two pieces alike.
The purple/violet hue in the Amethyst quartz stone comes from the presence of magnesium and iron in the natural crystal. Amethyst is more expensive because of its rarity and difficulty in the carving process.
We make our Amethyst Gua Sha stones without using any chemicals to carve them, and without using any synthetic colors or glass crystals to make them more shiny and vibrant. It’s 100% natural stone, carved and made with the intention of keeping the ancient Chinese Gua Sha ritual in mind so that it can be used on delicate skin without worrying about its purity.
Since these are natural stones, there may be small dimples here and there, this is completely normal. These crystals are very delicate and should be handled with care. If you drop them, they will break.
Amethyst, in the spiritual world, is attached to our Crown Chakra, it balances our emotions and helps with decision making power. It is considered a strong stone for protection and healing. Its association with the Crown Chakra means many people use Amethyst as a crystal to enhance clarity of mind during meditation.
“YBP SKIN is based on the science of how your skin, body, and mind function together, rather than the concept of selling one “magic” product promising to give you the most beautiful poreless skin with just one application.”
