Gemstones for Fathers

Gemstones for Fathers

Introduction

We recently posted an article, Gemstones for Men, outlining several gemstones that appeal especially to the masculine side. This article details the gemstone looks, colors and patterns rather than their spiritual powers.

Gemstones for Fathers deals more with how the spiritual strength of a gemstone can reinforce a man's natural ability but does not ignore the allure of masculine colors – at the risk of being called old fashioned we have mainly gone with gemstones with strong hues to combine with the right spiritual influence.

There is more to being a 'father' than just being a man. Almost any male can sire a child but to be a father or a dad takes a bit more commitment. Just a few of the qualities required include:

  • Discipline
  • Tolerance
  • Time
  • Supportive
  • Teaching
  • Protection
  • Love
  • Courage
  • Dependability
  • Communication
  • Honesty
  • Industrious
  • Involvement

We have selected our favorite Gemstones for Fathers based on their spiritual prowess and their influence on the above characteristics. As they are for fathers we have also made sure they are tough enough to take the occasional bump and knock if worn as jewelry and tend to come in robust colors.

These gemstones can be made into jewelry items such as rings, bracelets and pendants or can be placed on desks, shelves or bedside tables where they can create a positive aura at work, play and rest.

You could not pick a better gift for the father, husband, son or friend in your life.

Let's begin with one of the most renowned gemstones for fathers with a long history to back its claim.

Carnelian

Carnelian could be the perfect gemstone for fathers. It is the gemstone of action and vitality, motivation and courage, leadership and endurance – with those attributes you are halfway to becoming the ideal dad!

It was worn by warriors into battle to ensure bravery but does not stimulate mindless violence or physical intimidation rather a calm steadfastness. It is also supposed to help with the emotions of the male mid-life crisis.

Carnelian comes in great burnt orange and sunset red colors and, cut into cabochons with flat bottoms and domed tops, make impressive rings with a classic or retro look.

Bloodstone

Another historically significant gemstone is Bloodstone. Once upon a time, Greek athletes competing in the ancient Olympics and Roman gladiators fighting in the arena would wear bloodstone amulets for endurance, physical strength and courage. Raising children can just as daunting and fathers need all the staying power they can get.

Being part of your children's lives should not be seen as a sacrifice but Bloodstone is seen as a symbol of relinquishing your own needs for the sake of others and instilling unselfish thoughts and deeds.

Blue Sapphire

Blue Sapphire has long been the gemstone of power and strength, worn by kings and rulers as a symbol of authority and dominance. However it is also a stone of wisdom, self-discipline, protection and focus so not just a stone of bullying and oppression.

Its deep blue color can also represent prosperity, faithfulness and communication as well as being very attractive in jewelry items.

Tiger's Eye

Tiger's Eye gemstones can claim to be the embodiment of a gemstone for fathers with virtues that include courage, self-confidence, quick and decisive thinking, creativity and action taking.

The honey brown color combined with stripes and swirls represent dependability and make anyone that comes in contact with this stone feel safe and secure.

Amethyst

Bringing up children and maintaining a happy home may be the ultimate joy in life but it can also bring its fair share of stress and anxiety. The soothing and calming attributes of Amethyst have been admired and appreciated for millennia across many cultures.

It has a reputation as a Stone of Sobriety which can help anyone attempting to avoid the pitfalls of overindulging in drink or drugs or other such detrimental habits. In addition it will help anyone suffering from insomnia get a good and restful night's sleep.

The ability to communicate with your children is vital for being a success as a father. If you can listen to the needs of your offspring and speak with them without judgment or misunderstanding it can lessen an awful lot of frustration within the family.

Turquoise is the Stone of Communication and is a symbol of friendship. It will encourage you to speak from the heart without feelings of embarrassment.

The sky blue or teal green colors have long been associated with the outdoors and a romantic desert feel which help make them great for rings, bracelets and pendants.

Hessonite Garnet

Hessonite garnet comes in stunning burnt orange and deep red colors which are much loved by designers of men's jewelry and since garnet in this color is associated with the Root Chakra it influences our feelings of security and instincts for survival.

Garnet gemstones are great motivators and will revitalize anyone in need of an energy boost. They also enhance commitment and responsibility – two vital components for good fathers.

In the story of Noah, a large garnet was placed on a pedestal in the middle of his ark to help guide the vessel during the long dark rainy days and nights. This can symbolize the leadership, guidance and counseling of a caring father.

Pyrite

Pyrite brings the energy of abundance, wealth and prosperity, which can help you to make prudent financial and business decisions. Perhaps because it looks like gold, Pyrite is known as the ultimate gemstone of luck and wealth. It will motivate you in the right direction to increase your finances and standing and can act as a shield of protection, sending any negative energy back to where it came from.

The solid metallic appearance can incorporated into some very interesting looking items of jewelry.

Citrine

Our last gemstone is the golden yellow citrine, the Lucky Merchant's Stone, so called because of its ability to ensure success and abundance in business. It will give any father the confidence that he can provide for his family and help him balance time at work and time spent with his loved ones.

It will also help you share your success with your family, encouraging generosity and sharing. The sunny colors not only look good but bring about feelings of joy and optimism.
