Have you ever noticed certain preferences for different coloured gems? Everything in life has a vibration , a wavelength if described by physics. In metaphysics each stone is considered to have properties that help with healing, protection and balancing a person's energy. This is one of the reasons I enjoy creating with genuine stone including the turquoise pictured. This is sleeping beauty turquoise in the classic robin egg blue and also in the rare green. Silver is a wonderful feminine metal that enhances the vibrations of other gems. Handmade glass which is a silica base is also full of energy. Below is a sampling of vibrations as summarized from Melody's book " Love is in the Earth". There are many books that describe the properties of gems and stones. This information can enhance your creations and choices in colour and gem combinations.

  1. fabulous post... i love working with specific stones and metals as well... i have to check out this source... i would like to see what it says about copper... i know it has inherent healing properties, be i found it interesting that silver was specifically called a feminine metal...

  2. Great post about gemstones and their chakras.

    Turquoise is so pretty. I recently saw some top AAAgrade Sleeping Beauty Persian blue (aka robin's egg blue) it had no matrix in it at all,was lovely, and yes the price tag on it was way up there! Made me decide that perhaps I like the turquoise with all its matrix best as it is a whole lot cheaper...not that any of the Sleeping Beauty turquoise is cheap. =D

  3. Thanks Ladybugs ! Most turquoise is stablelized and affordable, the truly natural turquoise is picey in its au natural state. But that is hard to come by as there is so little available.

  4. O, what a lovely post and so instructional. I am always very curious about such things!



I love to hear from my readers, please share your thoughts!
