Gemstones for Fertility
Fertility is the natural ability to produce offspring. There are a number of factors which can affect this natural capability in both partners. Eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of exercise, quitting smoking and cutting down on drugs and alcohol and avoiding stress are some of the day to day activities that can increase fertility.
Of course, there is the major, and usually fun, part of making babies so increased libido and potency can be very important.
A study by the British Medical Journal indicated that fertility in males has dramatically decreased over the past 50 years – sperm counts down by almost 60%! What has caused this startling fall is not fully understood but we can guess that environmental factors such as industrial chemicals, hormones in food, pesticides and herbicides, electromagnetic fields must play some part.
Ever since humankind first started collecting, shaping and wearing gemstones they have been connected with sexuality, potency and fertility but which gemstones are best for fertility?
We have collected together a few we think will give you the best boost. Some are for virility, some for receptivity and others to get you both in the mood.
Garnets are known as both the Stone of Health and the Stone of Commitment. They have long been renowned for their stimulation of positive sexuality in both men and women. Red garnets are associated with Demeter, the Greek Goddess of Fertility.
Garnets will give you a positive and confident attitude as well as the motivation to cement your relationship by bringing a new life into the world. Most garnets are linked to the Root Chakra which, when it is balanced, makes us feel safe and secure and ready for the responsibilities of parenthood.
Carnelian is the Stone of Action and is particularly recommended to boost male virility and libido. It is probably the gemstone most often suggested for boosting fertility. Carnelian is a reddish orange gemstone that is connected to the Sacral Chakra.
The Sacral Chakra is located just below the navel and has specific links with the well-being of all the reproductive and sexual organs of both men and women. Carnelian increases endurance and creativity as well as promoting impromptu and instinctive lovemaking.
