Colour Properties Of Gemstones

Colour is a vibrational form of energy & has an effect on mind, body & spirit. Your gemstones absorb & reflect this colour energy. As you become more familiar with your stones, it will become clearer as to why stones of the same gem family have different influences due to their individual colours. For example, you can compare the action of different Quartzes, of different Tourmalines, of different  Agates, Corals Jades etc. To help you see how colour & gems go hand in hand in every reaction here is a general guide to colour action.

How To Wear Your Gemstones
Adapted from Gem Power. D.  M.  Mella, Madame Fabia & Amalthea's Gem Lore.

Every object, animate or inanimate is surrounded by its own energy field called an aura. When we use a gemstone within our own aura it is then influenced by the gem's aura. When you are within a 3 foot range of any gemstone, you are within its energy field of influence. So, as can be seen, your chosen gem influences others who enter your auric space & you in turn are influenced  the gems worn by others if you are close enough. For the maximum benefit, wear your stones against your skin. Some parts of the body are best for maximum results. Consider your left side of the body. [ for those who are right handed, lefties reverse process please.] Your entire left side is the most sensitive side of your body. It receives all the energy from outside yourself & directs it to the Solar Plexus. These influences can create sudden mood swings. When you consciously wear gems on your left side you can more easily absorb the gem 's qualities & control & modify stresses from your environment. Stones that banish negativity & those used for protection should always be used on your left side. On the other hand, when you wear gems on your right side, your gems can aid your will power & productivity. The right side is your action side, always test any crystal or gem in your left hand before using or buying, close your eyes & actively tune in, you should get an emotional response, if they response is negative & it is your own cleanse it, if you are buying it you must now decide whether to take or not. All stones should be cleansed regularly. If there is no response at all, the stone has not chosen to vibrate due to your aura, seek another of its kind.

RINGS:

Your left hand, your sensor, listens & receives, while your right hand, your power hand will direct & conduct your non verbal expressions. Your fingers are not merely handy digits used to push buttons etc., each finger is ruled by a Planet & has its own individual purpose.

Your pointer fingers are your directional fingers of expression, & a gem on these fingers can influence your communications, goals, dreams & desires. Worn on the right, the stones can assist you by sharing their energy towards your directed actions & goals. On the left the will effect your emotional level during the process.

Your middle finger is your intuitive & inspirational finger. Only use these fingers when you wish to stimulate your intuition or when you are using a divination tool.

Your forth finger commonly called your ring finger, is your creative finger. On your left, this finger can receive all forms of creative stimulation & effects the Heart Chakra. [ Not by chance that Brides become squirrel like, & want every thing in sight for their new homes, for this is due to the "Yuppie" vibrations of their new diamond engagement ring.]

The little finger is the finger of change & opportunities, & can be used to break habits. Check your Gem  charts before using any stone on a regularly basis. Use your intuition to find what might be best for you, charts of this kind are only guide lines.

Stones may be taped to your chakra areas for ritual or healing or carried in a pouch or bag, depending on their use left or right side of body.

THE PLANETS:

The index finger  Jupiter.   The middle finger Saturn.   The ring finger Sun / Apollo. The little finger mercury. The thumb is the will power & desire, Mars. Some authors advise not wearing any ring on the thumb as your will power may be influenced or blocked, if you choose to wear a ring on this finger make sure its stone has the vibration you need & want, by meditation on the said ring or stone. Stones are like natural batteries that can heal, protect, banish, they also supply magical energy, & even knowledge & wisdom in time.

THE  WRIST:

Bracelets & cuff links that are worn at the wrist are used for protection, to calm or energisze, & magically aid you in rites. If you are one of those people that just can not wear a digital watch on your left wrist, this may be due to the quartz reacting to your body rhythms, avoid quartz in this area.

ARM BANDS:

If you are wearing arm bands in ritual use stones that provide strength & courage.

HEADBANDS:

Should provide creativity & psychic power.

NECKLACES & CHOKERS:

Form shields for the Throat Chakra, so protective, eloquence & self image stone are worn here.

EARRINGS:

Earrings are worn for balance of left & right brain activity.

PENDANTS:

Pendants are worn low over the heart region for images & desires.

ANKLETS:

Anklets are worn to supply  protection, support, grounding or energy

THE GIRDLE OR BELT:

The girdle or belt is used  for action, achievement, vitality, energy boost, lust / love.

STONE POWER

This stone was very popular among the Ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, The Celts, & American Indian Tribes [of South & North America] Later the Jews, Christians & Moslems used it in their religion, they consider it a stone that safeguards against Witchcraft & black magic. It is said that the amethyst will loose its colour or shatter in the presence of these evil forces. Worn by all Bishops & the Pope. The Jewish priests of old wore it to gain spirituality & power, it was the centre stone of the breast plate.

The Egyptians saw it as a protection stone that safe guarded from treachery & surprise attacks on the physical & higher planes. The Greeks & Romans saw it as a power stone used to protect from the excesses of food & drink & it was therefore worn at their Festival Rites & Feasts, & even goblets were carved from this stone or the stones were inlaid with amethysts to prevent intoxication & food poisoning. Many Christian authors speak of the stone being powered & drunk for this purpose, this is incorrect, many of these goblets can be found in museums world-wide. This practise of crushing stones is found in documents dating from modern day alchemy texts. [ Higher magic, not Pagan]  The Romans & Greeks also used this stone for headaches, to cure insomnia, to induce pleasant dreams & for self-healing of a number of common ailments. [even teething.] Also used for will power, spirituality & protection while travelling. In the modern sense this stone is used to get in touch with your intuition, your own feelings & values. It aids second sight & will protect its owner. To Shamans this is / was a power stone used in initiations, which aids all magic work.

When you are stressed hold this stone in your receiving hand until you feel calmer or better still wear amethyst against your skin & you may avoid such highly wrought emotional states. It calms fears, raises hopes, promotes spirituality, wards off guilt & self deception. It curbs over indulgence of food, alcohol, & other addictions & bestows good judgement Even in situations of potential danger the amethyst will come to your aid. The amethyst also lends courage to its wearer & is a powerful amulet for travellers. Worn, it protects against thieves, bane, sickness & danger. Because it is a spiritual stone it is also used for meditation, ritual bath or ritual cleansing. Ring a white or purple candle with amethyst & use sandalwood incense. May also be placed on altar or worn in rites. The amethyst is also used to increase psychic awareness, mental powers & to sharpen the 6th sense, so can be placed with all divination tools.

[ Do not use for sex rituals, for it banishes lust] It is also used in lawsuits to ensure justice is done & to bring success in business & money matters. Hundreds of years ago this stone moistened with saliva was rubbed on the face to banish pimples & rough skin. Today it is used in spells of beauty & self worth. In Renaissance magic, amethysts were engraved with the image of a bear & worn as protective amulets. In Greco-Roman times rings set in bronze were worn as charms against evil & magical cups carved from this stone banished bane & sorrow from all who d rank from them.

MELODY
