Gemstone Meanings and Crystal Properties in Handcrafted Jewelry

Jewelry is one of the best ways we can express ourselves. When shopping for jewelry pieces, we often want something unique and different. Purchasing a piece made with cut gemstones and crystals can hold deeper, more personal meanings than other jewelry pieces. Here is a collection of some unique gems that hold deep meanings, symbolism, and other healing properties! 


Gemstone Meanings and Crystal Properties

This grey-blue stone with flashes of yellow, gold, and green is a beautiful and eye-catching everyday gemstone. Labradorite often wears lines that appear as cracks on the gem. However, we can assure you that these lines do not usually result in chips or breaking when you treat them with care. Labradorite is the stone of spiritual awakening and will help guide your intuition, mental health, and it will help keep you protected.


One of the most sought out gemstones for jewelry is turquoise. Turquoise is an opaque greenish-blue gemstone that pairs beautifully with sterling silver or white gold. Turquoise helps us reconnect with ourselves by activating and balancing the throat chakra. Also, turquoise will encourage us to speak our wisdom and truth. 


If you’re looking for a gemstone that will add pops of color, tourmaline is the stone for you. This rare gemstone comes in a variety of your favorite colors, including red, pink, yellow, black, green, and blue! Each color of tourmaline has a different meaning. However, in general, all tourmaline carries feelings of natural joy and beauty. 


With their earthy green color, unakite is a natural, everyday stone. Unakite helps protect your body from negative feelings of anger and resentment. Wearing the stone can help your body become support for higher experiences, helping teach patience and perseverance. 


Topaz is another stone that will add the perfect pop of color to your jewelry pieces. You can find topaz in a variety of colors, including red, orange, peach, pink, gold, yellow, blue, brown, green, white, and clear. Topaz is associated with the astrological sign of a Sagittarius because it is the birthstone for those born in November. When you wear topaz will help you manifest a more positive future.
