Last week we took a look at what the attributes and benefits are of warm colored gemstones. Each material of gemstone, color, and placement has very specific benefits that one can utilize for spiritual, mental and physical health. I have been doing an insightful series on gemstones including their benefits, how to style them, and alternative ways to incorporate them into your life. To wrap up the color aspect, today we look at cool colored stones and how you can start coordinating them to their maximum potential!
Green inspires balance and soothing emotional energies. Great aids for emotional confusion, anxiety or hyperactivity are Malachite and Chrysocolla. Bloodstone, the intensely dark green stone with red or orange oxide marks is great for relaxation and soothing stress reactions.
Purple is the highest color on the vibration scale. Amethyst comes first and foremost to mind as a great gemstone to open up receptivity and introspection. Those who are overly sensitive should consider wearing their purple stones with a mix of grounding dark blues or greens for adequate balance.
Blue is the color of intellect and mind. For mental control and intellectual astuteness, try Lapis Lazuli. Sapphires are great for promoting self-assertiveness, while blue Sodalite or blue Sardonyx can aid in intellectual skills, and are great when used when speaking in public.
Brown denotes earthy security. For feelings of stability, use brown Agates, Jaspers, or Wood. For self-protection and further security, carry or wear brown-banded agates. They are also beneficial in preventing fear or stress and are great stabilizers for emotion.
Black has an extremely protective color vibration. For support and protection wear Jet, Onyx or Obsidian. Combine black gemstones with others especially Pearl, Moonstones or Diamonds for protection for overly sensitive persons. Black stones react well with other multicolored stones such as Moonstones and guard you from those who invade personal space.
Our next segment in our gemstone series will be an intriguing question – If you were a gemstone, which one would you be? This is to match you personality traits with the gemstone/s that will suit you best.
