What do you know about gemstones? Gemstones are minerals that are cut and polished for beautiful jewelry. Each one has unique properties that it adopts overtime. Take a look at some of the stones that I use; maybe you're even wearing one of them right now!
Amethyst- Amethyst calms your spirit and provides you with peace and healing. It originated from Ancient Greek and literally translates to “not intoxicated” as it would protect its owner from getting too drunk.
Citrine - Citrine clears negative energy and enables success. It is a type of quartz and originates from Latin citrine meaning “yellow”. Citrine can sometimes be found with amethyst in the same crystal known as ametrine.
Turquoise- Turquoise protects its wearer from any kind of unsettling energy and is known for its personal connection to its wearer, its power and its friendship. Dated to the 16th century, turquoise was originally brought to Europe from the mines in Turkey.
Peridot – Peridot releases compassion and decreases stress levels leaving its wearer feeling more and more weightless. Peridot only comes in one color, unlike most other gemstones. It gets its color from the quantity of iron in the crystal structure.
Pearl -The pearl restores your faith and allows you to embrace your inner purity. Pearls take their color from the inside of the shell they grow in- this is why some pearls range from white to gold and others from purple to black.
So next time you wear a stone, take a minute to admire it. Maybe the jewelry you've been wearing for weeks or even months has been protecting you, calming you and restoring you all along. Maybe you've just always loved how gorgeous the stone on your favorite necklace was and never really wondered if it had a deeper meaning.
