Have you ever been extremely drawn to a certain gemstone and you don't know why? Maybe its your birth stone, maybe it's trying to tell you something.  You may be attracted to onyx because you tend to draw negative energies from other people and onyx can clear that for you.  Maybe you are attracted to Malachite which may mean it is time for a change in your life.  Attraction to certain colors may mean you have a blockage in one or more of your chakras.  A general rule of thumb for the color of a stone associated with the chakras

  • Crown- clear to purple
  • Third Eye- dark rich blues
  • Throat- blue to turquoise
  • Heart- greens
  • Solar Plexus- golden tones and amber
  • Sacral-  orange to red
  • Root- deep reds to dark browns

The following list is meant as a guideline, however, a lot of stones have overlapping uses with one another. One stone could have 50 different uses.  There are no rules when choosing a gemstone.  It can be hard when ordering over the internet to know whether or not a stone speaks to you or not, but if you like the look of a stone, chances are you have something to gain from it.  To get the most out of your new stone:

  1. Upon receiving your stone I highly recommend cleansing your stone.  You may cleanse a stone with salt water, but if your stone is in a piece of jewelry it is not recommended to ever submerge a piece of jewelry in water.  Jewelry is best cleansed using smudging or visualization.  Visualization is the easiest for most because it requires no tools.  Simply hold the stone in your hand and imagine a white light emanating from it until you feel it is clear.  Remember other people have handled the stone, and you do not need any of their emotional baggage.
  2. Charging your crystal is another step I feel like most people skip.  Remember these stones have been pulled from the Earth, cut, polished, etc. They have been handled by numerous people, shipped  around the world, and handled by more people.  Every time you touch a stone you can draw some of its energy, so chances are by the time it reaches you, the stone may not have much left to give. To charge, you can draw energy from the Earth, the sun, or the moon.  Whatever works easiest for you.  I prefer to charge my crystals under the full moon,but if you live in an area where your jewelry will be covered in dew in the morning it is probably best to charge it inside on a windowsill overnight and/or put it in the dry grass on a sunny day.  The same goes for old gemstones.  If it has been in a box for awhile, or you wear it everyday, it is probably time to charge it up to get the full benefits the crystal has to offer.
  3. This last one is one that people always seem surprised by.  As I mentioned before, one stone may have 50 different uses.  Set your intention! You can set multiple intentions, but there are many stones that may be useful for fertility, but also anxiety.  If you are not wanting to get pregnant and solely want to use it for anxiety, that energy the stone will project for fertility is wasted on you.  Wouldn’t it be best if ALL of it’s energy then, was directed at calming?  This is just as easy as clearing the stone.  Hold the stone in your hands, close your eyes, and think about what you want.  If you are using it for calming, imagine yourself relaxed and calm as can be.  If you are using it for fertility, imagine yourself holding your baby.

These steps can be done in any order, but I highly recommend cleanse, charge, set intentions.This is a comprehensive alphabetical list of the properties and meanings behind all of the stones we use in our jewelry and sell at Ethereal Earth.  We will keep this list as up to date as possible.
