Our Obsession with Gems – Superstition or Science?
Precious and semi-precious stones have been the center of fascination for millennia. They are colorful, shiny and mysterious, so of course everyone wants to get their hands on them. But their true value lies way beyond any currency that we use in the material world.
True, in most ancient cultures, gems were a substitute for money. People died (and killed) for a small emerald brooch, or a ruby necklace. Pearls meant power, and they were more valuable than gold. However, these stones have an even more remarkable spiritual importance. Some thought they were gifts from the Gods, while others believed they came from another, parallel dimension.
Whatever their origin, it is undeniable that they have ‘magical’ and healing abilities. Hematite for example can ward against evil spirits and mental harm. Amethyst is known to enhance psychic abilities, while rose quartz is excellent for love spells. Chakras can be balanced with a gem that matches its color, too.
Whether you like them for their beauty or because of their colorful past, they will pull you in. Is this all superstition though, or is there some type of explanation for our obsession with gems? Well, each of them has its own story. And that story can sometimes go back millions (or billions) of years.
This timeless magic exists within us, too. From time to time, we go back to our ‘roots’ and appreciate all Nature has to offer. Could we choose a better way to celebrate life than with something Nature created? Something that survived year billions, untouched, undisturbed, unbroken? Gems truly are the perfect examples of eternity. The secret has been in front of us all along.
