Gemstone therapy promotes the idea that the energy of gemstones affects the human body in different ways, depending on which gemstone is used. According to this therapy, the human body is a form of energy, as are gemstones. Since gemstones are created over long periods of time, deep in the earth, they have very steady energetic vibrations. The human body, on the other hand, remains a new and malleable combination of atoms with unsteady energetic vibrations. Therefore, when a gem's stable vibration is placed against the skin, it can alter the energy of the human body.

Gems for Your Well Being:

  1. Amethyst: Amethyst jewelry has been popular among healers throughout history. The gemstone amethyst promotes meditation, healing, protection and trust. It is spiritually uplifting and has a cleansing effect on mind and body.

  2. Coral: Although it is a delicate gem, coral is known for strengthening one's emotional foundation. Its positive effects include reducing stress and fear while promoting social growth. Popular coral jewelry includes beaded necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

  3. Emerald: The gemstone emerald helps balance both physical and emotional healing, encouraging meditation and a feeling of tranquility. Wear emerald jewelry to get an overall feeling of well-being and renewal.

  4. Garnet: Therapists use garnet to relieve tension in the body. It is thought to be one of the more stimulating gemstones. Red garnet is also a symbol of good health, especially in winter when the glow of garnet jewelry brightens dark days.

  5. Jade: This stone relieves tension and creates a feeling of relaxation and inner peace. Yet jade can stimulate creativity, too. Jade jewelry also symbolizes wisdom and courage according to ancient folklore.

  6. Ruby: As a healing stone, ruby opens the heart, helping it overcome fear; rubies represent life and vitality. Ruby jewelry, of course, is also a symbol of passion and love.
