Gabbro is also known as the "Blizzard Stone." It is an excellent ascension stone; highly grounding and elevating at the same time. It aligns chakras, gradually stimulates kundalini and is wonderful for shamanic journeying. It is a good stone for Empaths, Earth Workers and others who suffer from "energetic overload" and prone to spaciness, headaches and dizziness. The Hamsa Hand is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths it is a protective sign. It brings its owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune.
