Medicinal Gemstones and Jewelry

For eons, gemstones have been believed to hold magical powers bordering on the supernatural. They are thought to provide a connection to the planets, sun, moon and stars, and possess the power to heal or prevent illness. Gems in dreams also hold special gemstone meanings.

Gemstones are believed to collect their powers from the earth whilst they form by natural heat and pressure due to volcanic action. Therefore, many people believe these earthly powers can be harnessed for health reasons. For example, the light that reflects through a gemstone crystal, or energy emanating from it is thought to facilitate healing when the gemstone is placed on vital parts of the body. This use of gemstones and minerals for healing is called lithotherapy, and this field is gaining popularity throughout the world of alternative therapy.

Gemstones used today for healing purposes sometimes have symbolic and mystical signs engraved into them, as in ancient times. According to aficionados, the shape of the stone can also be very important. Special significance is attributed to gemstones such as long pendulum-shaped crystals with a pronounced tip, or rounded stones that are kept in the pocket or held in the hand.

Abbes Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) chronicled the healing powers of gemstones in her book Physica. Today there is a resurrection of interest in what is known as Hildegard medicine. According to her view, gemstones are formed through the powerful combination of water and fire; therefore, they hold powers corresponding to these phenomena. She also believed that each stone had a certain, divine blessing from God. For example, she said the following about sapphire: "Who is dull and would like to be clever, should, in a sober state, frequently lick with the tongue on a sapphire, because the gemstone's warmth and power, combined with the saliva's moisture, will expel the harmful juices that affect the intellect. Thus, the man will attain a good intellect."

Here are many of the most popular gemstones and minerals with a description of the their crystal healing properties that they are thought to possess:
