How do the healing properties of gemstones work, and why?

Precious and semi-precious gemstones have been used since recorded history and probably before, for spiritual, emotional and physical healing. Alternative healers all over the world use gemstones today.
Throughout history  gemstones have been utilized as powders or elixirs, worn, carried or placed on the body and in ceremonies or rituals. The popularity of holistic health and healing is bringing the use of gemstones once again into modern life.

What is the definition of a gemstone? Well,  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gemstone says that :
A gemstone or gem (also called a precious or semi-precious stone, or jewel) is a piece of mineral, which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornments. However certain rocks, (such as lapis lazuli) and organic materials (such as amber or jet) are not minerals, but are still used for jewelry, and are therefore often considered to be gemstones as well.

Advanced thinkers such as quantum physicists comprehend the vibrational nature of matter and attest to the electromagnetic radiations of gems. All Gems are unique. A gem emanates a magnetically charged force that can influence any organic electrical body that is in its immediate sphere of influence.

There are many sites that feature gemstones and their properties, and I would like to provide a sort of synthesis here. For example http://www.soularenergy.com puts it this way:
“The energy field of different gemstones is influenced by geometrical form, colour and subtle vibration. Each stone is made up of minute crystals which are in constant motion thus emitting an energy signature or frequency. The gemstone’s colour also plays a dynamic role in the stone’s healing energy. The play of light and colour can stimulate or calm; purify or heal.”

How can therapeutic gems accomplish all this?  Gemstones are formed over eons, often at high pressure, the Earth’s gemstones embody intense concentrations of energy. Today, we employ the energetic and physical properties of gemstones in lasers to perform delicate surgeries and in computers to propel information around the globe. Similarly, we can use certain gemstones to focus and amplify the body’s innate energies to uplift our health.

I will be talking about color and how it relates to our energy in my next blog .
Some of the interesting examples of the healing and energy properties of more commonly worn  gemstones are as follows:

Amethyst:
Enhances spiritual awareness, meditation, visualization, serenity & composure. Attracts good luck & love, calms & transforms. Shifts energies to the higher frequencies of both the spiritual & ethereal levels.

Turquoise:
A general healer. Dispels negative energy & protects. Encourages self-realization and creative problem solving. Strengthens the body and energy field. Heals the spirit; soothes and brings peace of mind.  Attracts love.

Blue Topaz
Assists one in attaining clarity to successfully communicate & manifest desires. Lifts burdens & helps one to see the great overall scheme of life. Attracts abundance & love; relieves tension.

I will be discussing more gemstones and their very interesting specific properties, along with the properties of metals that are intrinsic to jewelry design.

About Gemma

I have been surrounded with art and creativity all my life - both my parents were professional artists in New York City. I pursued a career in fashion design while living in New York and continued my involvement after moving to Italy. I became increasingly more interested in art while taking painting and sculpture classes at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and began painting seriously about 10 years ago. The jewelry design is a natural continuation of this creativity. Jewelry design is an art, and I approach each piece as if it were a painting using color as my primary inspiration. Color also reflects emotions, and I believe that it can actually effect emotions. I have created a unique collection of jewelry in semi-precious stones and silver utilizing gems and crystals. The colors and beauty that the stones themselves possess reflect specific energy and healing properties. Gems and minerals have long been known for their healing and beneficial effects and I like to create with those specific aims in mind. Gemstones and crystals emit specific vibrations, according to the mineral content, and also according to their color. We see color because of its vibration. All is matter of vibration, and scientists have long known this to be true. I love to explore the many possibilities that these energies and colors can offer combining the elements of design with the esoteric and energetic properties of the stones themselves. My collection sold for ten years in our jewelery store in the suburbs of Rome. It is currently sold online through my website and my Etsy Shop. I am continually creating new additions to my jewelery collection.
