METAPHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF GEMSTONES AND CRYSTALS



Gemstone Metaphysical Properties 


My own curiosity about the gemstones, minerals and crystals I use in my handmade FavoriteBlings necklaces 
led me to learn more about them.

It turns out that people across the centuries and across the planet, myriad nations and tribes that did not speak 
the same language or dialect, humans who could not even understand each other, all somehow came up with 
the same concept - that all rocks were not created equal.

That whether ground up and pressed into healing powders, carved as amulets, used in trade and medicine, or 
revered as body adornments, humans learned that some rocks could be cut, polished and transformed, and the 
resulting gemstones were believed to possess special unseen value beyond their physical beauty and brilliance. 

Across the millennia, gemstones have been linked to hopes, fears, dreams and aspirations. Peoples worldwide 
came to believe that gems could offer and provide love, protection, energy, courage, success, health, wealth 
and a host of other metaphysical properties, and those deep-rooted belief systems are still revered by many today.

So, in addition to confirming that humans have had a long-standing interest in and reliance on the metaphysical 
properties of gemstones, I was happy to learn exactly why gemstones are revered, what power and protection 
each offers,
by researching folklore, legends, cultural and esoteric wisdom, spiritual beliefs, religious traditions, 
crystal therapy and ancient rituals through the centuries...

This information is for your entertainment, a joyful diversion, I hope you enjoy...
