What are Gemstones?
Gemstones refer to the most beautiful and valuable types of stones on earth. There are natural mineral crystals such as crystals, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and so on; there are also natural monomineral aggregates, such as opals and a few organic materials such as pearls and corals, which belong to gemstones in a broader sense.
We can also classify gemstones according to their rareness. Among all types of gemstones, diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds are regarded as four most precious stones; while mid-range gemstones such as aquamarines and tourmalines have been popular to collectors too thanks to their wonderful colors and meanings.
The Power of Gemstones
At Elmira Jewelry, our gemstones and crystals have healing properties that help to balance the body, mind, and spirit. Healing crystals and gemstones have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations; the Egyptians, Aztecs, and others incorporated healing stones into jewelry, cosmetics, decorative statues, amulets, and much more--a testament to the powerful ability of gemstones to release mental, physical, and spiritual blockages.
Both our bodies and healing crystals have energetic vibrations, which makes us naturally receptive to the vibrations of gemstones as they can align our own vibrations with theirs. This is why healing crystals and gemstones have a powerful vibratory effect when placed directly on your body. This energy surges from the crystal to you, which facilitates the free flow of energy throughout the body.
Our gemstones and healing crystals serve as a tool to help connect our conscious thoughts with our body. With healing stones, the real game-changer is when you program them with a specific intention for transformation. Thoughts can be powerful because they direct energy and energy follows thought. And when you use gemstones in the process, their frequencies help to magnify those thoughts and intentions. In the mineral kingdom, there are many different crystal meanings that support a range of intentions, from wealth and abundance, balance and vitality, rest and relaxation, and more.
