Interview: Transforming Water with Gemstone Energy with Pauline Speirs, VitaJuwel

Pauline Speirs is a sound healer and crystal therapist and UK distributor of VitaJuwel gemstone vials which energise and transform water quality and taste.

When did VitaJuwel begin creating gemstone vials?

VitaJuwel was officially founded in 2007 and is still a family run business based in the German Alps. They take great pride in designing unique, lead free premium glass vials made by master craftsmen following century old Bohemian traditions.

I am a sound healer and crystal therapist and I first found the VitaJuwel products while training in a new sound technology in Austria. I was training in Dr Emoto’s European HADO lab when I was first saw the products and learnt about the company. I had already been putting crystals in my water and my bath so I knew the benefits of gem water but these looked amazing and they had the research to back up that the products actually worked. Initially I had enquired to purchase a few for myself and very quickly became a distributer in the UK of the VitaJuwel range. They are a fantastic company with great ethics and really do make you feel like part of the family.

Seven years ago, VitaJuwel revolutionised the method of vitalisation of water with gemstones. Our vision now and then is providing you with homemade gem water like fresh from the spring.

It was more than 25 years ago when Ewald Eisen started to pursue a goal to make the preparation of healthy and vital water available for everyone. His guiding principles were not to use artificial, chemical, mechanical or generally man made tools to improve the water’s quality but exclusively to rely on information found in nature and to use traditions that were practised by millions of people over thousands of years.

Countless tests and in depth communication with researchers all over the world have led to fascinating results and made him the inventor of VitaJuwel gem vials and the founder of the modern preparation of gem water. Today he still works on his original objective to infuse water with the code of nature in order to give it back its original quality. VitaJuwel have become the world’s leading supplier for glassware with gems to revitalise water, shipping to more than 40 countries all over the world.

How does gemstone energy affect water?

The use of gems to vitalise water is a traditional art, known and practised by the ancient Greeks. Gems have the ability to store and release energy. This energy affects the surrounding drinking water, making it more lively and enjoyable. This effect can be tasted by water lovers and has been proven by lab analysis.

What benefits does this energy provide water?

The energy provided by the crystals and gems have amazing benefits for water including slowing the growth of bacteria in the water.

Lab results have found a distinct improvement of tap water quality, such as:

  • Neutralisation of harmful substances
  • Improvement of the pH-value and oxygen content
  • Increase in bioavailability of minerals
  • Raise of energy balance
  • Increase of vital powers
  • Quality level otherwise only known in natural spring water

What is meant by gemstone energy or gemstone vibration?

Everything in the Universe vibrates, including us. Crystals vibrate at different frequencies depending on their matter, size, thickness and their colour. Many of our technologies today are due to the fact of being able to harness the power of crystal energy.

How do the changes in the water affect our bodies?

Water is our most important beverage. 70% of your body consists of water. Nothing impacts our wellbeing more than the quality of the water we drink. But water is not just H20. Scientists showed that water from the spring is more vital than tap or bottled water. More people are becoming aware of how important not only water is to our health but good quality water.

With every sip of water you take, you decide whether you consume dull and dead water or energetically rich and vital water. If you had the choice between regular tap water and fresh spring water, what would you choose?

Scientists of the Charité University Hospital Berlin surveyed how drinking water influences the skin, especially its impact on blood circulation, oxygen supply and the skin’s metabolism. Their study showed that drinking water benefits the skin‘s vitality. Ten minutes after drinking water, the blood circulation of the skin improves, the oxygen supply rises and the skin‘s metabolism gets encouraged. These effects support the protective function of the skin.

  • Drinking sufficient healthy and vital water is very important, for several reasons:
  • It will have an impact on all of your body’s functions
  • It can slow down the ageing process
  • It assists in weight loss
  • It strengthens the immune system
  • It noticeably increases your quality of life!

How long does it take for the water to transform or do the gemstones work immediately?

Gemstones are continually emitting energy, when they come into contact with water they will start transforming it straight away. Lab tests have shown that it takes around 7-10 minutes for the gemstones to change the structure of the water. We like to leave our water to infuse overnight and we think that that over that amount of time we can taste a difference in the water. Smoother and lighter tasting water is what people usually report to us after an overnight infusion.

Why do you use vials and not add the gemstones to the water directly?

Gemstones can be added directly to water and have been used this way for centuries. The VitaJuwel method is a very hygienic way of producing gem water as daily cleaning of the crystals is not necessary and there is no cross contamination from pollutants.

How do the gemstones stay charged?

This is something that I am asked often. It is my own, often controversial, personal belief and practice not to charge my gemstones. I choose gemstones based on my intuition and how they resonate with me, I feel that by charging the crystal I would be somehow trying to change it and not working in harmony with its natural energy.

I believe that crystals have a continuous, uninterrupted flow of energy to draw upon and clearing the stones is key to keep them vibrating at their natural frequency.

In this case I use sound for all my gemstones and will ‘rest’ them if I have been using them for long periods of time, I will also use sage for energetically cleaning the gems from time to time.

Do the gemstones clean the water or is it advised to use filtered or spring water with the vials?

The gemstones help to energise the water and neutralise impurities however we suggest that people use filtered water where possible.

Do gemstones ever negatively affect water?

Not all gemstones can be put in water, some can be very harmful as they will make the water toxic and others are soluble in water. Gemwater made with these types of crystals have to be prepared using the indirect method. The indirect method is where the water is separated from the crystals by a physical barrier – which is why the VitaJuwel products are so easy to use.

Can the vials be used with other liquids?

There is an ancient tradition in selected wineries of enhancing their wine by adding amethysts and they achieved amazing results. The difference now is that they don’t place the gems directly into the glass but use the more hygienically method of the gemstone vial specifically made for red wine. There is also the individual glass vial which helps to soften the wine’s natural acids and makes it smoother to drink.

Is your glass lead free?

VitaJuwel exclusively use lead free glass and are handcrafted by master craftsmen in Bohemia and Austria in a patented, artisanal method. This is what helps to make every VitaJuwel product a true masterpiece. All of the products are individually designed on the drawing board with a lot of love and devotion by the company in the German alpine uplands using the best available products.

Are the gemstones harvested sustainably?

It is very important to me that I use ethically sourced and harvested crystals. VitaJuwel support Fair Trade Minerals and Gems. The non profit association Fair Trade Minerals & Gems e.V. which was initiated and co founded by the most famous author and expert of crystal healing, Michael Gienger, aims for high goals of fair trade and the advancement of social and ecological projects. This is redefining the coexistence of all humans that are working with the rocks and minerals. Therefore, it is a pleasure for us to return part of our earnings to the source of the rocks and crystals to support this coexistence.

Our aim here at VitaJuwel is to provide you with the possibility to enjoy gemwater wherever and whenever you like. We work hard to make various, fascinating blends and tastes accessible to you, based on the insights of modern crystal healing.
