Gemstones for Teachers

In the dim and distant past I was a high school teacher, trying to impart my love of English literature and the glories of grammar to my students. I look back on those 15 years with great fondness but I do wish I had had one of two of the gemstones we are going to discuss today, with me back then!

It takes a few special qualities and attributes to make a good teacher:

  • Enthusiasm
  • Confidence
  • Communication
  • Patience
  • Discipline
  • Collaboration
  • Empathy
  • Love
  • Friendliness
  • Organization
  • Passion
  • Stress Management

We have collected together 8 great gemstones with spiritual strengths that will bolster your abilities and keep you going when times get tough. Let's get on with it, shall we?

Gemstones for Teachers - Rose Quartz - Love

Confucius say, 'Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life'.

This could apply to any job, of course, but loving your job, your students, your colleagues and the difference teaching can make in the world, is the secret to a successful career as a teacher. Rose quartz is the gemstone of love, compassion, empathy and nurture and will help get you through the most difficult of days.
