I came across this list while browsing "American Gem Society" website. (http://www.americangemsociety.org/healing-gemstones) and thought they did a good job in telling a little about many of the Precious & Semi-Precious Gemstones. You can click the link above for the whole list.
Then I googled "healing gemstones" and found a book on Amazon.com called "Healing Crystals: The A - Z Guide to 430 Gemstones" by Michael Gienger. ( http://www.amazon.com/Healing-Crystals-Guide-430-Gemstones-ebook/dp/B003YL4L1G/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1394648506&sr=8-5&keywords=gemstones+for+healing#reader_B003YL4L1G) This link is the eBook version preview and is very interesting. click the link above for more information and a look at the book.Kindle Edition $5.49 Upon a quick read through this book, it seems to be a comprehensive book with detailed information.
Then I tried "Folklore" to see where that would take me. And upon reading a bit, I found an article that mentioned "Haunted Gems" http://blog.gemvara.com/2012/10/28/gem-class-haunted-jewelry/
An interesting blog written in a "Halloween" mood. This article referenced The Hope Diamond, The Koh-i-Noor Diamond, The Blood-Red “Great Imposter”- Ruby that is not a Ruby, and The Delhi Purple Sapphire – “Cursed” Quartz. All of which are very interesting stories linked to these particular gemstones. Read more by clicking the above link.
Then I thought, well, if I was to use the folklore of the gemstones, while I am daily around gemstones of one sort or another, then I should be in no pain, in great health with both my body and mind, and prosperous. Of those of you who know me, you know that I am none of the above. ok, so what am I doing wrong??
Back to the Folklore of gemstones. I am pretty much willing to try anything for pain relief, so I will have an update on weather or not this is for me. I will be using a rough Amethyst. Thanks for your open mindedness in reading this little blog. CJD.Sign
- The most efficient and suggested way to utilize crystal and gemstone therapy is to wear high-quality beads around the neck. Metal inhibits their healing properties so rope or string should be used as a chain. Also, metal surrounding the gemstone and crystal should be avoided.
