Today I’m showcasing my latest gemstone creations and sharing with you their healing properties. All are available at my store site, Accent Gem Designs.
First up, this fabulous Tiger’s Eye & Blue Aventurine stretch bracelet and earrings set. This may become my new favorite. Tiger’s Eye is known to increase wealth and vitality and attract luck. Historically, Tiger’s Eye has been used in protective medicine. Roman soldiers would wear engraved Tiger’s Eye stones during battle. Physically, healing eye disorders is one of the most common medicinal uses associated with Tiger’s Eye. It can help slow the flow of energy through the body which makes the gem very helpful in stress related illnesses.
Blue Aventurine stimulates creativity, intellect and independence. Aventurine is used to balance the male/female energies, to help reinforce decisiveness, and to supplement greater motivation in all activities. It is especially useful in leadership skills and abilities.
Aventurine is considered a good luck stone, in any color. The blue shade of Aventurine is used in healing and balancing the emotions, helping us to communicate more clearly and creatively. It stimulates creativity, intellect, as well as independence. It is also said to provide patience, eliminate stubbornness, control excitability, and to give one a deeper understanding of the cause and effect in situations, thus allowing one to more completely understand any situation and to assist in finding the optimal solution.
Physically, Aventurine has effectiveness on the adrenal glands, muscular system, connective tissues, and nervous system. Said to be one of the best stones for relief of migraine headaches. It is always helpful with eyes and eyesight.
I think the combination of Tiger’s Eye and Blue Aventurine is quite stunning.
My next creation is another Aventurine and Tiger’s Eye combination. This one uses Green Aventurine (which is known to be the most powerful color in attracting money) as the main focal points with Tiger’s Eye as accent beads.
This might be a stone you’ve never heard of before: Unakite. I wasn’t familiar with it until I saw these beautiful beads. I just had to have them and knew I wanted to make something earthy. This is exclusively Unakite with copper accents.
Unakite is said to lift your spirits when you are feeling down –This is the gemstone to help you to see the beauty in life. It is also used to uncover deception.
This gemstone will help one to maintain a balance between spiritual and physical lives, allowing them to join forces in assisting one to create the life one needs. This is exceptionally important in today’s busy lives because the trials of just getting by can make you feel like you have been deserted by your higher power.
Unakite helps you to move beyond issues from your past that seem to haunt and hold you back from being all you can be. It assists in removing the obstacles that stand in the way of one’s personal growth. It will aid in the release of pain and anger. It can be very helpful in the steady release of feelings long held in. Unakite is very good for someone who is having a hard time moving on after the loss of a loved one or for anyone who has recently went through a divorce.
Unakite is also great stone for all stages of pregnancy. From conception to birth the stone helps nourish both mother and child to ensure a healthy birth.
Physically, healers believe that Unakite has the ability to unleash buried emotional pain and to aid in the body’s healing process. Since many illnesses began as an unhealed trauma to one’s psyche, letting go of emotions aids the body’s tissue in relaxing on a cellular level. Thus promotes healthier organs, muscles and soft tissue.
Up next is a Fancy Jasper and Emerald Jade wrap bracelet and matching earrings:
Fancy Jasper is also known as India Agate. This gemstone is an opaque creamy beige or gray stone with lavender, green, pink, orange or red swirls and specks. It is said to facilitate tranquility and help eliminate worry and depression. It also might bring mental clarity. It is useful for general healing.
Jade assists you in connecting to your inner self – the Divine within. It brings you joy, love, prosperity and abundance. Used as a protector, it also brings in an appreciation and openness to beauty and serenity. Jade provides clarity, modesty, courage, justice and wisdom. It is the stone of peace, bringing serenity to your mind by releasing negative thoughts. It’s a stone of balance and healing, and alleviates anxiety and fear based emotions. Jade assists in seeing the truth in all situations. .
As for physical healing, Jade is said to be a stone of the heart, strengthening it as well as the kidneys, nervous system and immune system and to promote health in the organs that purify the blood.
And finally, while Trick or Treaters were traipsing around my neighborhood, I was making this fun Hematite and Red Quartzite stretch bracelet and earrings set:
Hematite grounds and protects us. It strengthens our connection with the earth, making us feel safe and secure. It endows us with courage, strength, endurance and vitality. A “stone for the mind”, Hematite stimulates concentration and focus, enhancing memory and original thought.
Hematite utilizes the magnetic qualities of our yin-yang energies to balance the meridians within the body and to provide a stable equilibrium between the ethereal nervous system and the physical nervous system. It focuses energy and emotions for balance between the body, mind and spirit.
It dissolves negativity and prevents you from absorbing the negativity of others. Hematite is strong, supporting timidity, boosting self-esteem and survivability, enhancing willpower and reliability, and imparting confidence. It helps to overcome compulsions and addictions, treating overeating, smoking and other forms of overindulgence.
Physically, Hematite restores, strengthens and regulates the blood supply, aiding blood conditions such as anemia. It supports the kidneys and regenerates tissue. Stimulates the absorption of iron and formation of red blood cells. Treats leg cramps, anxiety and insomnia. Hematite aids spinal alignment and fractures.
Quartzite is known to stabilize positive changes by anchoring them in your physical being. It is said to prevent you from slipping back to your old state after you undergo any uplifting, healing or spiritual experience. Quartzite helps the body establish a new state of balance, yielding beneficial changes. It also helps you maintain your perspective and balance.
