Halloween Gemstones

Halloween Gemstones
Halloween Gemstones

Halloween has its roots in a traditional Celtic celebration called Samhain, which marked the end of summer. The division between the real world and the spiritual world was supposed to be at its thinnest at this time of year so people would dress up in scary costumes and make loud noises in the street to keep the spirits away.

Its popularity in America and on TV and in movies has meant it has become one of the most popular holidays all around the world.

The customary colors of Halloween are orange and black. Orange represents the autumn colors and the harvest vegetables, such as pumpkin and squash, and black symbolizes the dark side of Halloween.

Recently purple and green have been added to the festive color range.

We have put together a few gemstones that we feel ideally capture the colors and tone of this wintry festival and, if worn as jewelry, match the colors of Halloween perfectly.

Let’s begin with the quintessential color of Halloween, orange. I have chosen gemstones that can be made into every type of jewelry item and can be worn to parties for grown-ups or kids, to wear handing out candies or when trick-or-treating in the neighborhood.

First up is:

Hessonite Garnet

Hessonite Garnet, an outstanding gemstone, durable, bright, clear and all natural and in burnt orange colors that just scream Halloween.

Spessartite Garnet

Spessartite Garnet, an equally stunning gemstone with a dazzling sparkle and great autumnal colors that are sure to catch the eye.

A switch from garnet to:

Orange Zircon

Orange Zircon with a luster that outshines diamonds, this gemstone comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes so you are sure to find at least one you love.

Orange Sapphire

Sapphire, these high quality and prestigious gemstones are not only blue in color but can also be found in deep intense orange colors.

That's all from the orange range, now for the black:

Black Tourmaline

Black Tourmaline comes from a family of gemstones known for their bright colors but this version is as black as the darkest Halloween night with a glassy polish and a variety of shapes and sizes.

The best Halloweens always have a full moon to help create a spooky atmosphere:

Moonstone

Moonstone was once thought to be created by the rays of light from a full moon and with its silky almost liquid surface and eerie ghostly glow you can see why.

Two newish colors have been adopted for Halloween, first the witch’s favorite:

Amethyst

Amethyst, a classic purple gemstone perfect for chunky rings and pendants that will bring a splash of color to any party or gathering and they look especially good at night.

Let's finish with a glow-in-the-dark green gem:

Peridot

Peridot is a lime – no, not slime – lime green gemstone with a whisper of gold in its sparkling appearance. Its color will really pop against a background of orange, purple and black.
