Molybdenum is a magic metal that is finding its rightful place in a global economy that’s always searching for natural resources that improve the quality of other materials as well as the quality of life.
Molybdenum has unique properties that enhance the strength as well as the corrosion resistance of other metals like stainless steel.

When this energy is disrupted either physically, mentally or spiritually, some action needs to be taken to get the body’s energy flowing again. Using certain stones by wearing the stones, carrying the stones or placing them on the body is believed to get that energy flowing again, helping the body feel better. For example, crystals have been used for their healing energy. Each stone or mineral used has specific ability to heal specific illnesses, whether mental or physical.
