The Enticing and Enigmatic Emerald
Emerald. One glance at this gorgeous green gemstone and one might just fall head over heels in love with its fathomless ocean of colour.
This mysterious and magical crystal has been revered by ancient cultures since time immemorial. The Egyptian magician, Hermes Trismegistos, carved upon a pure Emerald tablet, words that held the key to magic: “As above, so below.” For this reason Emeralds have always been considered a magical stone, connecting cosmic and Earthly realms, and for bringing thoughts and desires into reality.
Called the “Gemstone of Successful Love,”Emerald Gemstones nurture the heart and the Heart Chakra. Its soothing metaphysical energy provides crystal healing to all levels of the being, bringing positivity and vitality to the spirit.
A stone of inspiration and patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love. Emerald jewellery especially promotes friendship, balance between partners, and is particularly known for aiding domestic bliss, contentment and loyalty.
What is the history of emerald and its spiritual properties?
It was dedicated in the ancient world to the goddess Venus for its ability to ensure fidelity and security in love. This is why you quite often see emerald in gemstone engagement rings, as they are the perfect crystal to give new lovers as healing crystal jewellery for its inherent metaphysical ability to promote friendship and harmony within relationships.
The deep colour green in Emerald jewellery embodies respect that you should have for life and for creation.
This will give you a stronger sense of responsibility to only take what you need, and to give back what you’ve taken so that the balance will not be disrupted. The energies of these healing stones will inspire you to live in a more harmonious, generous and loving way.
Emerald is quite rare, and not known as a semi precious stone like most you might find in a holistic shop. It is one of the four precious stones on earth; Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and Diamond. However, buying emeralds for crystal healing purposes is not too difficult, as you can purchase rough emeralds quite inexpensively when compared to fine precious gemstone jewellery and faceted gemstones.
Rough emeralds hold the same, if not more metaphysical properties than the clear, faceted gemstones you find in crystal rings and pendants. When visiting your local holistic shop, ask if they stock raw emeralds, and if they do, hold it in your hand for a while and wait for the tingly sensations of the healing stone energy…it’s quite interesting!
Crystal Healing With Emerald
Since we’ve been working with Emerald by wearing crystal jewelry with the gemstone in our aura as long as possible during the day, we have noticed a big improvement to our moods and a deep, profound respect for nature and all living things, no matter how small.
We found that the best way to benefit from emeralds metaphysical healing properties is to wear it as a copper pendant, or a copper ring; but preferably the former as the crystal jewelry will be positioned above the heart chakra, where it most resonates. It will help clear any blockages in your energy body, especially in the heart and allow the spiritual energy of the lower chakras to flow to the higher ones.
We love to combine the beneficial properties of copper jewellery with healing stones such as emerald, as it conducts metaphysical energy into the body far better than without it. For example, a copper ring or copper pendant with emerald will have much more impact than piece of silver jewellery due to the conductive properties of copper jewelry for crystal healing.
If this post about Emerald and healing crystal jewelry has resonated with you, and you feel you would benefit from working with this healing stone, we have an ever expanding selection of handmade gemstone jewellery, tumblestones and raw crystals for you to browse in our holistic shop. Take a look through and see which stone attracts you, it’s surely the healing crystal you need the most right now.
