Magnesium forms virtually weightless strands resembling feathers, giving it the lightest of touches. It doesn’t focus on any one area or function of the body but spreads evenly throughout, filling the user from head to toe with its delicate, subtle energy. Magnesium’s unusually light weight combined with its physical strength give it a similar quality to rutile, in that it lifts the spirits while at the same time imbuing the user with a sense of control over his or her life. Its vibrational energy can be used as an anti-inflammatory, an anti-depressant, and to support many of the body’s functions.
