Discover Magic of Gemstones: From Style to Spirituality

When the Babylonians observed the passage of the heavenly bodies across the firmament thousands of years ago and believed they had discovered the secrets of their effects on the fate of human beings, this also marked the dawning age in which gemstones were seen as bringers and guarantors of health and happiness. Ancient European cultures strengthened the belief in the interaction between cosmic radiation, gemstones, and human beings. If a man or a woman wears a stone that suits them due to the planet to which they are attributed, the stone bundles this energy like a lens and releases positive forces. The superstition says that precisely the opposite takes place if the wrong stone is worn. Their unusual colors and scarcity certainly contributed to the fact that magic powers were attributed to gemstones in various, independent cultures as societies emerged.

There is no doubt that the enlightenment of science has stripped gemstones of some veils of mystery. However, many things relating to the jewels from the depths of the earth have remained as intriguing as ever. This has lent them additional fascination and value as jewelry stones until the present day. Even modern science is attempting to unravel the mystery. Here we describe the various attributions of the most adored gemstones beyond their physical characteristics.

Sapphire: A gift of sapphire symbolizes a pledge of trust, loyalty, and sincerity. It is from this tradition that sapphire has long been a popular choice for engagement rings. The gift of sapphire is a commitment to keeping promises. Like ruby, it is one of the most prized of gems due to its hardness and highly saturated color.

 

Emerald: The ancient Egyptians believed emerald represented fertility and rebirth, as well as hope and loyalty. It was associated with the Greek goddess Venus, who represented love and beauty, and in several cultures as diverse as Chinese and Irish, it has long represented good luck. Emerald has even been credited with improving one’s memory and intelligence, and has the power to transform negativity into positive emotional energy.

 

Ruby: Like no other gemstone, the ruby is the perfect way to express powerful feelings. Ruby symbolizes bravery, determination, and passionate energy. A ring set with a precious ruby is a celebration of love, which makes everything else possible.

 

 

Pink Sapphire: Pink is one of the most popular and beautiful of the many vibrant colors of sapphire. It represents intuition, clarity, and self-mastery. It stimulates the emotions of love, forgiveness and acceptance. Like all sapphires, it is a very hard gem, and is thus suitable for any form of jewelry. It lends an extra-feminine air to any jewelry design.

 

 

Amethyst: In addition to bringing peace, happiness, and emotional well-being, amethyst is credited with the power to enhance your intuition and psychic powers, resulting in good fortune. It was also believed to protect you from snake bites and evil spirits. Amethyst is readily available in large sizes, so it is not unusual to see it as the center stone in bold cocktail rings – the perfect gift for a fifth wedding anniversary or as a February birthday.

 

Garnet: In centuries past, garnets were thought to light up the night and offer protection from nightmares. Travelers carried them to protect against misfortune when far from home. Garnet is brilliant, durable, and available in a broad price range, either as an accent stone or as the center of attention.

 

 

Green Tourmaline: Tourmaline is a relatively modern gemstone, reaching wide popularity only in the 1970s. It is said to have special healing properties and the ability to release a wholesome energy to all parts of the body, enhancing courage, strength and stamina. With a hardness of 7-7.5, tourmaline is quite resistant to scratching, chipping and cracking, making it an excellent choice for everyday wear.

 

 

 

Tanzanite: The deep purple of Tanzanite makes it one of the most elegant gemstones on earth. It is associated with the power of communication, with a vibrational energy that invites protection and safety. Tanzanite is relatively rare and sometimes costly, occurring in only one place in the world, the Merelani Hills in Tanzania, East Africa. It was discovered in 1967.

 

 

 

Morganite: Morganite is a beryl, and therefore gemologically related to aquamarine and emerald. It has a dazzling brilliance and comes in soft colors that range from clear pink to warm peach. There is a gentle, pink energy associated with morganite, that promotes healing and compassion. With a hardness of 7.5, morganite is a durable gem well-suited for everyday wear.

 

Aquamarine: The color of the sea on a warm tropical holiday or a cool iceberg in the Antarctic, aquamarine represents earth’s life-giving forces and surely one of the cheeriest in the gemstone palette. It was believed to have originated in the treasure chests of mermaids, who doled it out to protect their favorite sailors. As a gem, aquamarine is accessible, beautiful, and wearable – it can take a few knocks without chipping.
