Hokey or Hockey Aid? Olympic Athletes Wearing Energy Necklaces

TORRANCE, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If the US women’s Olympic hockey team seems especially energetic, it might have to do with what’s hanging around their necks.

Some of the gals have been given special gemstone necklaces designed by a company called Energy Muse, which claims its jewelry is endowed with special healing abilities.

The necklace is called the AmerICAN – emphasis on the “I can” – because as co-creator Heather Askinosie says, “In America, we can do whatever we believe we can do.”

She says the necklaces were designed for hockey players Natalie Darwitz and Kelly Stephens, but has seen other teammates and athletes at the games wearing them too.

The red, white and blue stones used in the choker are red carnelian for notoriety; white agate for grounding; white moonstone for destiny; blue lapis lazuli for wisdom; and a center medallion made from a Sacagawea dollar to represent going for the gold.

The necklaces sell for $110 at
