Gemstone & Crystal Healing Properties
Throughout the ages, the healing properties of gemstones and crystals - their beauty, and magic - have been recognised and harnessed. As far back as the Stone Age, men and women wore crystal jewellery. They had a protective, as well as a decorative function, guarding their wearer against harm. The ancients employed gemstones for protection, adornment, healing and for seeing into the future. Gemstones were frequently worn and carried by ancient Egyptians as amulets and charms. Greek mythology frequently refers to gemstones, and many have been discovered in the tombs of Chinese rulers. Gemstones were used extensively in ceremonies and initiations by the Native Americans, the Mayans and Aztecs. The breastplate of the Jewish High Priest was set with precious stones; it conveyed power to the wearer.
Gemstones and crystals today carry the same power and energy as in the past. Healing jewellery is now worn, not just on the basis of its beauty, but also because of the healing power of the crystals and gemstones it contains.
Here, you will discover that wearing gemstones and carrying crystals is a highly effective way to promote health and healing. They can boost your energy; clean your space; attract wealth; enhance your intuition; increase mental abilities; boost your confidence; bring abundance; or even attract love.
Metals also carry properties that can be helpful to us. I have also listed those that I include in my healing jewellery.
You will find more than one listing for some gemstones, as many are known by more than one name. For example, Anyolite is also known as “Ruby Zoisite”, Bloodstone is also known as “Heliotrope” and Almandine is also known as “Eudialite”.
There can also be many varieties of gemstone found under a particular generic name. For example the Agate family includes: Blue Lace Agate, Dendritic Agate, and Moss Agate. The Quartz family includes: Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, and Smokey Quartz.
Listed in the scroll-down menu at the top of this page, you will find an A-Z of different gemstone names. This list also contains the names of the metals used in some of my jewellery.
Please use this list to find more information about the healing properties of each stone. Remember, the information provided is to be used only as a guideline for healing. If you feel attracted to a particular gemstone, then that is the one that offers the healing properties you need at the time. Gemstones are particularly helpful on a holistic level. It is best when they are used to treat the underlying cause, rather than just the symptom. If you need additional assistance, please contact me.
It is important to remember that healing is not the same as curing. Healing is helping the body, or mind, to become stronger and consequently better. Always see your doctor if you have nagging health problems or serious injuries — healing with gemstones, complements, but is not meant as a substitute for medical, or psychological, diagnosis and treatment when needed.
