Gemstones, an amazing creature of nature. There are many kinds, shapes and colors of gemstones, some even say they have physical and spiritual healing powers, so let’s get to know a bit about them:
Birthstones are gems associated with the month a person was born:
The origin of the 12 birthstones comes from the bible, they were inlaid on Aaron’s breastplate and each gem used to represent one of the 12 tribes of Israel at that time.
Garnet: The name comes from the fruit pomegranate as it resembles the deep dark red color. Some people say that Garnet is the “Stone of Health” as it vanishes negative energies and heals your soul and mind.
Amethyst: Amethysts are not just beautiful gems, they are used to assist in spiritual healing, calming and clearing your mind. Amethysts are known to be worn since ancient Egypt days.
Aquamarine: An amazing crystal, the Aquamarine gem encourages self-respect and inner peace. Aquamarine states for sea-water, the ancient romans believed it will guard them while traveling by sea.
Clear Quartz: Can be found almost on every continent so it is associated with many cultures. One of the most popular healing stones and it looks stunning!
Emerald: A very precious gem, it is associated with strong sexuality, fertility and nature itself, it is also associated with eternity as nature renews itself. The name comes from a Persian word meaning “green
Moonstone: A silvery light that comes from within, as you can imagine moonstone is associated with the moon. Knows as a true love stone, some say it can make your wishes come true on a full msoon day! (My favorite gem!)
Ruby: The stone of nobility, passion and the sun, considered to be the queen of all gems. It is a blood stone and some say it helps with heart problems. The name Ruby comes from Latin and it means the color red.
Peridot: Has a unique shade of lime-green, as other gems the color also relates to some mystical healing properties. The lighting and color of the gem will sure make your mood better!
