A Gemstone for every Room

A Gemstone for every Room
A Gemstone for every Room

We have written articles on gemstones for working from home, for decorating your home, for children, mothers and pets but I think it is time we wrote one on the best crystals for each room in the house. A room-by-room guide to using gemstones.

We shall go through each room in a normal home and choose one or two gemstones that will influence the activities and emotions that take place there.

Entrance

Let’s begin at the front door, the entrance hall or porch, through which all energy whether positive or negative must pass. We need some protective Black Tourmaline placed here as it will shield your home from negative energy and absorb any harmful energies of people entering the home.

Living Room

Then we have the living room or lounge area where we like to relax and unwind. Turquoise brings calm and serenity as well as empathy and friendship – an ideal crystal for the lounge or family room.

A great alternative to Turquoise is Larimar, the only gemstone found in the Caribbean. Larimar is a calming gemstone that also helps with communication and honesty.

Dining Room

From there we move to the dining room where Blue Agate will help with lively conversation and allow for confident expression of ideas without things boiling over into arguments and acrimony.

For those watching what they eat, Apatite crystals suppress hunger pangs so you can resist that second helping.

Kitchen

The kitchen can be your favorite room or the last place on earth you want to be – we have a couple of crystals that may help. Carnelian will get your creative juices flowing and bring out the inner Gordon Ramsay.

If cooking is more of a chore than a pleasure try some Pyrope Garnet to boost your energy and motivation at the end of a long and tiring day.

Bathroom

The bathroom can be a place of relaxation and revitalization and there is no better crystal for both than the master healer, Clear Quartz, a cleansing and purifying gemstone that will also bring positivity and clarification.

Bedroom

Either Rose Quartz or Amethyst (better still, let them work in combination) are perfect crystals for the bedroom. Amethyst will bring a restful night’s sleep, free of bad dreams and Rose Quartz induces feelings of love and romance.

Children’s Bedroom

For the children’s bedroom, I would suggest Moonstone to keep away nightmares and the fear of the dark.

Peridot, the Study Stone, will help with homework and preparation for exams.

Office

An office in the home will benefit from a Tiger’s Eye gemstone or two. This crystal will get you focused on the task at hand and keep you motivated and concentrating all day long.

If your home office contains lots of electronic equipment and wifi connections, keep some Malachite nearby to block and absorb the harmful electromagnetic radiation.

Garden

Finally, just as much part of the home is the garden, the plants and vegetable patches could do with some crystal power, too, and none is better than Green Aventurine, the gemstone of prosperity and abundance, which will have your backyard flowering and fruiting in no time.

How do I use gemstones in the home?

Using gemstones in individual rooms can be as simple as placing one or two on a shelf, cabinet or side table. You can create an imaginative display or make an elixir to spray around the room to fill it with the gemstone’s aura.

See our separate article on elixirs here

I have chosen the gemstones based on their sphere of influence and the most common function of each room – living room – relaxation – turquoise. In addition we can apply the knowledge of the ancient practice of Feng Shui to place gemstones in certain parts of the home to utilize their forces.

The home is divided into sections according to the points of the compass (called the Bagua) and each part has an impact on particular aspects of your life.

Size and Weight

Gems are always measured in Millimeter (mm)

Dimensions are given as;
length x width x depth,
except for round stones which are;
diameter x depth

Select gems by size, not by weight!
Gem varieties vary in density, so carat weight is not a good indication of size

Note: 1ct = 0.2g
