What’s more fun than wearing a new piece of jewelry? Wearing gemstone jewelry that also helps in the healing of various ailments. It’s a two for one, you get the beauty and the function. With so many pieces to choose from it’s important to do your research to match the stone to it’s intended purpose. So many questions spring to mind, what type of jewelry, a necklace, earrings, bracelets, or rings? Should you mix stones on the same piece of jewelry? And how should you store them? Most importantly of all, what separates healing jewelry from other jewelry?
Finding the right stone requires research. Cosmic Crystal Visions has an ever-growing reference guide to stones and their purposes. Browsing through the jewelry and reading the descriptions is also a wonderful place to start your journey. If you don’t find what you are looking for, you can always request a custom order. My favorite healing stones include amethyst, moonstone, citrine, moldavite and jade to name a few.
You can never go wrong with amethyst. It is extremely beneficial to the mind, calming or stimulating as appropriate. A spiritual stone that benefits the immune system and tunes the metabolism. The beautiful violet color is so attractive and appealing. Rainbow moonstone, is just a joy to look at with it’s nuances of color. A wonderful stone for new beginnings, representing the cycles of the moon. It helps the digestive and reproduction system. Looking for joy in your life? Look at joyful citrine. A stone of abundance, attracting wealth and prosperity. Promoting joy and imparting energy, it alleviates fatigue. Of course, who could leave out moldavite. That wonderful, increasingly rare stone from The Czech Republic. It is a form of tekite, formed when a giant meteorite struck the earth. Used since the stone age as a talisman and amulet for good fortune. It will one day become extinct. The wonderful flow of energy that strikes you when you hold it is an amazing experience. Now jade, who could leave out jade? So beautiful and yet so loving and nurturing. It is associated with the heart chakra. There are so many wonderful healing gemstones it’s hard to list all of them.
The type of jewelry is very flexible. The energy surrounding your body absorbs the energy of the gemstone. If you prefer earrings to rings, then choose what makes you comfortable and happy. You are more likely to wear them. You can always take a few moments to meditate with the jewelry by placing it on the area of your body you would most like to heal. Lay down with the jewelry in a quiet place and state your intentions for the gemstones. Placing amethyst over your crown chakra and stating your desire to add peace and calm to your mind is very beneficial. I prefer necklaces as I can tuck them under my shirt if it doesn’t match my outfit.
Be careful when mixing gemstones on the same jewelry piece. Using a clear stone such as quartz is a wonderful way to magnify the power of the main gemstone. Other gemstones may cancel each other out. Although many do compliment each other. Chakra stones are an ideal match. Spiritually, amethyst and moonstone compliment each other. So much of it has to do with your intention for the stones.
The difference between healing gemstone jewelry and other jewelry are your stated intentions when putting the jewelry on and the gemstones you choose. If it is your intention to bring joy to your life, hold your citrine jewelry, focus your mind on it and clearly state, “I wish to bring joy into my life”. Citrine, a joyful stone, will respond well to your intentions.
It’s important to cleanse your jewelry. I recommend using sage to cleanse them before wearing the first time and periodically using sage to remove negative emotions. Store them in a safe place with selenite to also keep them cleansed. Selenite cleanses other stones. And never needs cleansed.
Now for the fun part, think of the areas of your life you would like to change, find the coordinating stone and choose a lovely piece of gemstone jewelry to achieve your purpose. You aren’t just buying beautiful gemstone jewelry, you are buying jewelry with a purpose. Of course, healing stones are never a substitute for a medical doctor. They can be a wonderful compliment to it and provide you with the most attractive form of healing stones, gemstone jewelry.
