Many of us wear diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, or other precious stones because we admire their beauty. But these gems could be more than just another pretty face – there could be some unexpected benefits above and beyond that of a mere accessory.
The idea that gemstones possess healing and metaphysical properties is ancient and naturally, given its long history, belief in the claims has come in and out of vogue. What was readily accepted in the 60s and 70s would likely get an obligatory eye roll in the 80s or 90s. But in 2015, we seem more willing to embrace the unconventional or alternative, often ancient practices and that’s not a bad thing.
We thought it would be fun to research some potential benefits attributed these precious stones. If you don’t “go in for that sort of thing” that’s ok! Either way it’s interesting and, hey, it can’t hurt!
Of course we have to start with the super star of stones: diamond. Naturally the most obvious and expected associations include love, faithfulness, and purity; and perhaps both fitting and ironic, diamonds are associated with Mars and Venus, seeming opposites, yet seen as parts of the same whole. However, diamonds are also believed to inspire creativity, and increase endurance and abundance. It is further thought to cleanse obstacles to achieving richness within the Self, augmenting self-love and respect. Wear your diamond when you meditate to enhance mental detachment. But what just might be the best of all is that diamonds could increase physical, mental and spiritual energy resulting in the slowing of the aging process.
So there you have it. If even part of these benefits are true, sure seems like a good reason to wear diamonds! Check back later for the possible hidden potential of Rubies, Sapphires, and Emeralds.
