Are gemstones infused with healing energy? What secrets do gems hold about ancient mysteries? How are today’s spa treatments utilizing these ancient energies to create positive change in you now? You will be surprised by the answers.
Whether you know it or not, gemstones may be influencing your life. After shortly moving to Arizona, I discovered that very few people living in Arizona were actually born in Arizona. I began to wonder why it appeared that this phenomenon is more so here than any other place I have lived. I discovered that the Four Peaks Mountain Amethyst Mine located in Arizona contains the largest gem deposit of amethyst in the United States. Could this be a coincidence that the state containing the most Amethyst is the state of change? After all, Amethyst is the stone of change and transition. Could that be why people needed change in their life come here for new Beginnings?
What Is Old Is New Again?
Gemstones have been particularly known for their protective and healing powers. These stories begin in the earliest recorded history. Many knights had gemstones, like amethyst, hematite, and garnet, placed in their armor to protect them when they went into battle.
Turquoise was believed to prevent accidents, and cure diseases of the head and heart. The ancient Egyptians believe turquoise could heal cataracts. The Navajo believed that Turquoise set into the opening to home would bar entrance by evil spirits. The Egyptians believed that turquoise possessed magical properties in that it could thwart misfortune and heal a variety of ailments. The national gem of Tibet, turquoise has long been considered to bestow health and good luck. The Apaches thought that turquoise attached to a bow or firearm increased the accuracy of a hunter or warrior.
As early as 3000 B.C. jade was known in China as ‘yu’, the ‘royal gem’. In the long history of the art and culture of the enormous Chinese empire, jade has always had a very special significance, roughly comparable with that of gold and diamonds in the West. Jade was used not only for the finest objects and cult figures but also in grave furnishings for high-ranking members of the imperial family. Today, too, this gem is regarded as a symbol of the good, the beautiful and the precious. It embodies the Confucian virtues of wisdom, justice, compassion, modesty, and courage.
Celebrity and Gemstones
Glen Christiansen, a Swedish Olympic record holder, who broke nine world-swimming records, sad that “the experience that I am having with the Green Tourmaline necklace is that it gives me a lot of strength. And I recover faster from hard workouts.” He definitely recommends the Green Tourmaline to athletes who do endurance sports like swimming, bike riding, tri-athletes, marathon runners, and athletes who do technical sports like golf and tennis.
Athletes are not the only ones discovering the healing qualities of beautiful stones like diamonds, emeralds, and rubies. Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars are proudly wearing their beautiful, therapeutic gemstone necklaces. Television actress Bonnie Hunt reports that she “feels calmer” after putting on her Mother of Pearl necklace.
Clint Eastwood, Uma Thurman, and Angela Bassett all own Carnelian necklaces which promote vitality and happiness, and the lovely Halle Berry have a necklace made of Leopardskin Jasper to bring harmony into her life.
The good news is that gemstone therapy is becoming more common and is for not only athletes and celebrities but is available to anyone wanting to experience it.

Gemstones as Healing Agents
Belief is something that makes the world goes on and this holds particularly true for gemstones. There have been huge scholastic arguments over the purpose of the invention of Jewels. While the Historians hold that the solitary purpose for which the primitive men collected gemstones was the adornment of their bodies, the Astrologers, on the other hand, are of the view that men have known the secret of the vibration qualities of the gemstones for millennia. The controversy apart, the common men worldwide, especially in the Arab and Asian countries, have always revered the gemstones for their great healing qualities and energy stimulating capacities. From a scientific perspective, their bio-chemical properties infest them with different vibration qualities. Different stones carry different energy-waves and it is believed, wearing these stones and crystals helps to transmit that particular energy on the wearer’s personality. Improving one’s integrity, these stones help to connect one’s self to the power of the universe.
