Since the beginning of time, different cultures have attributed gemstones to having symbolic meaning, power or even healing properties. With crystals and gems often made from natural materials from deep inside of the earth, it’s hard to deny their underlying magical and mystical qualities. Gemstones' physical beauty have always been a motivator for choosing different jewelry pieces, but what do you know about their metaphysical properties?
When picking out jewelry for yourself (or someone else), considering the gemstone and its meaning can be incredibly powerful in harnessing specific energy that you want the piece to embody. Being intentional about the healing powers or symbolism of the stone means the wearer feels protected and tapped into that specific emotion and feeling which can serve as a place of grounding or strength every time the jewelry is worn.
