Gemstones have long been associated with protection and healing. Some of the strongest of those are also commonly available.
Gemstones can help align and stimulate or calm energies in rooms and in bodies, protect from psychic attacks, either by themselves or in combination with other healing gemstones.
Amethyst balances and helps align energies, as well as raising lower energies to higher ones, helps protect against psychic attack, and aids in meditation. It provides a balance between the physical and spiritual worlds. It is known to enhance mental function. It is best cleansed under cool or cold running water, even if it comes from a tap. (Make sure the points are facing down.)
Moonstone is a stone of feminine energy, helping women especially to regain and maintain their energy and power balances. Combined with the above stone, it helps with emotional wisdom. It brings serenity and helps release negative energies. The clearer and more colorful the stone is, the more healing energy it has. Cleanse it in moonlight, either on the night of the new or the full moon for a fresh or more potent energy, depending on the phase.
Garnet has been considered a ward against evil since ancient times, and supports energy flow throughout the body. It helps remove negative energy and replace it with positive energy. It also helps calm chaotic situations. It assists with love relationships, either helping deepen existing ones or helping to find new ones. To cleanse the stone, submerge in sea salt water or dry sea salt overnight, or place under cool or cold running water, even from a tap, points down.
Healing gemstones make beautiful, useful decorations for your home, calming the environment. Caring for them is easy, and the benefits are many.
