Gorgeous thick and heavy Gua Sha crystal stone tool for traditional Chinese facial massage. Blue aventurine jade with gold stamping.
There is a lot of difference in the patterns of the stones. Some are overall darker and some are quite contrasted between light and dark blue.
The ancient Chinese beauty practice of Gua Sha (meaning scraping) is a simple press and stroke massage technique using jade boards and rollers along the contours of your face.
This beauty treatment has been used across Asia for thousands of years. It’s renowned for its unique ability to loosen tight jaw muscles and increase circulation under the skin, bringing in nutrients and boosting collagen, activating your body to nourish your skin in a more deep and meaningful way.
It stimulates the dermis to support collagen production, manipulating areas of tension to relax facial muscles, exponentially increases blood and lymphatic flow.
All this leads to a brighter, healthier, more radiant complexion. Especially great for de-puffing in the morning.
Apply a facial oil first so the stone can glide and doesn’t drag on your skin.
Use the different edges across your forehead, outwards and upwards along your cheeks, on your under-eye bones and along the grooves of the jaw.
Blue Aventurine resonates with the upper chakras, from the mind to the heart, and is especially stimulating to the Third Eye and Throat Chakras.
Aventurine is most commonly green, though it also forms in blue, red to reddish-brown, dusty purple, orange or peach, yellow, and silver grey. Blue Aventurine contains inclusions of Dumortierite.
