Spiritual Jewelry & Healing Jewelry
Spiritual jewelry takes many forms and styles. The one thing they all have in common are that they use crystals, rocks, gems or other materials that enhance the spirit and mind in a positive, regenerative manner. Spiritual jewelry can be worn as necklaces such as pendants or chokers, as ankle or wrist bracelets, rings for fingers or toes, earrings, bindis, belly rings, belly chains, arm cuffs or headbands/barrettes. Some of the stones, crystals and gems that are used are for spiritual jewelry are quartz crystal, amethyst, bloodstone, aquamarine, turquoise, moonstone, sunstone, ruby, lapis, tourmaline, agate, emerald, garnet, jade, onyx, and tiger eye. Some stones or crystals are chosen for their spiritual healing properties while others are selected for their powerful vibrational energy. In addition to types of stones the colors of stones also makes a big difference in how the stone or gem behaves in regard to the effects it has on the spirit. One such stone is Agate. Agate comes in many colors, all agate is known for its protection properties, but red agate is known for increasing sexual energy, while blue lace agate is said to bring harmony into relationships. This is something to keep in mind when selecting the proper stone or gem for spiritual jewelry or spiritual healing jewelry; not only should you be aware of the kind of stone or crystal you choose but also the color of that stone.
Not only is spiritual jewelry a great item to purchase for oneself, these pieces make wonderful spiritual gifts for friends and loved ones. If they are being given as a gift they should be selected carefully according to the needs and likes of the person you are purchasing them for. If the person you have in mind for such a gift is suffering from minor emotional ailment, such as sadness, a broken heart, relationship problems, or financial worries, specific gems and/or crystals may be chosen to bring relief from these situations. For instance rose quartz is known to alleviate minor depression or heartache and also to help relieve relationship troubles. Clear quartz is a universal crystal that is good for increasing energy and brining a feeling of well-being and adventurine is known for bringing good luck in money matters. These choices in crystals and stones can be found in many varieties of spiritual jewelry. Of course if someone you desire to purchase a spiritual gift for is suffering from something more serious, then it would be wise to suggest professional medical assistance to them, but spiritual jewelry makes a thoughtful present otherwise.
