The white metal isn’t as powerful as gemstones when it comes to direct healing, but it’s considered the most powerful conductor and amplifier. One of the great things about white metal is that it works with all crystals, gemstones, and other metals such as copper…and actually boosts their natural abilities. This means it’s excellent to use with jewelry- which is great because healing is best when close to the skin.
