Every gemstone stone is unique, each one believed to hold a different healing power, type of energy, or presenting a different form of luck, but certain gemstones are thought to be love stones, gems which can help bring love into your life by either encouraging a more loving state of mind, improving current relationships, or luring those we desire into our arms.
As skeptical as some people may be about the mystical powers of gems, the belief that some precious stones can work for the improvement of one's physical or mental health goes back to ancient times, and is often firmly stated as fact, if nothing more people still continue to wear certain stones for their extra-ordinary ability, and swear by their influence and impact.
There are several gems known to have love properties, including rose quartz, moonstone, jade and lapis. Different gems hold different love powers and are better used in different situations. Furthermore, certain gemstones work in tandem and it's important to understand how to combine certain stones in order to produce the desired effect.
Let's be realistic, no gemstone has the power to mysteriously make someone fall in love with you, the powers and influences of stones are far more subtle and delicate. Gems omit energy and choosing the correct gem, or using the appropriate combination of precious stones, can help you to channel that energy and develop the right state of mind with which to find love.
Attracting love with Rose Quartz
Essentially, what rose quartz does it puts you in a state of mind that allows you to receive love; If you are suffering from a lost or unrequited love it will help to comfort you; if you have been betrayed in love it will help bring back faith and trust, as well as a sense of self-worth and self-esteem; if you have simply never been in love, it will open up all the possibilities of falling in love.
Wearing rose quartz jewelry is said to attract love, or help you to love yourself, whereas using a rose quartz egg is said to help existing love grow, as well as encourage fertility. People often use a rose quartz sphere, placed in a certain location where they want to draw love.
Combing Rose Quartz with other love stones can bring further meanings; Rose quartz with chrysocolla is used to calm a volatile or rocky relationship, whilst rose quartz with watermelon tourmaline is used for overcoming nerves or fear related to love.
Combing rose quartz with chrysoprase can be used to overcome jealousy. There are other combinations each with a more specific goal and how you choose to combine stones is up to your personal preference; whether they are placed together and carried around with you, or set in a decorative bowl, or simply held during meditation.
Stoking the flames of passion with Moonstone
Whereas rose quartz is the gem of love, moonstone is most definitely the gem of passion, with powers that can cause fervor and create sexual energy, often stoking arousal and provoking feelings of eroticism. It's also believed that moonstone can help lovers to predict the fortune of their relationship, suggesting good or bad times ahead, and it can even be used to help with fertility.
Moonstone is best used in stoking the flames of passion in the bedroom. Combined with other stones moonstone can be used to intensify physical relationships; combing moonstone with sunstone you can increase sexual energy and amplify attraction. Combined with rhodonite, moonstone helps to bury old feelings and memories of past affairs, further increasing the passion in current relationships. With rhodochrosite, moonstone will encourage creativity and eroticism, promoting a sense of adventure and spontaneity between you and your love.
Some other gems with powers of love
Lapis is a blue colored gemstone considered to be very spiritual. Wearing lapis is thought to help overcome shyness and timidity, bringing inner harmony and increasing your spiritual levels, whilst helping to win over the affection of others. It also enhances fidelity within marriage.
Rhodonite is a stone of self love. Also known as a "rescue stone", rhondonite can ease away love scars and bring on forgiveness in others. Rhondonite increases confidence and self loving after emotionally painful events, helping to promote love towards others.
Sapphire is the stone often used as a pledge of love, and sometimes known as the gem of new love. Sapphire encourages trust and commitment, often used when loved ones are apart for long periods of time, gifted as a sign of commitment. Sapphire helps to create mental clarity, and also assists in finding new love, helping to build that initial bond and harmony.
