Benefits of The Beads

A lot of Python Charms' markers use semi-precious stone beads or chips. Folx, including myself, believe that there is a benefit to keeping some of these stones close by.

Below are some of the benefits of the beads that are regularly used within the Python Charms collections. Images below, unless otherwise stated, are from New Moon Beginnings and are not owned by myself. If you can’t find, or are having trouble identifying, your bead please use the contact page!
