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.

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!

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.

It is also believed that copper jewellery has the power to amplify thoughts when sending and receiving psychic communications.

Copper has the ability to ground and transfer a wide array of vibrational frequencies and supports healing by keeping the pathways for healing open. It’s a great choice to use during Reiki Sessions

Copper improves the powers of communication, and it helps with channelling, cleansing the chakras, purifying and increasing self-esteem and freeing the wearer of mental burdens.


How to Heal: Wearing copper jewellery eases joint stiffness and arthritis by opening the flow of blocked energy, supporting the body’s natural healing process.

Brandberg Amethyst

800 600 FFFFFF 28245964050bc4f48d3dac - Brandberg Amethyst

Brandberg Amethyst is a stunning and unique variety of Quartz crystal found only in Namibia, Africa – a gorgeous blend of Amethyst, Clear and Smoky Quartz together in one exceptionally high-vibrational crystal. Formed where powerful Earth meridians cross, this mineral is imbued with remarkable phantoms, enhydros, and other rare formations and inclusions. It is a potent talisman of healing.

Brandberg Amethyst is named for the soaring mass of granite known as “The Brandberg,” Namibia’s highest mountain located in Damaraland in the northwest Namib Desert near the coast. Rising from the desert, this dome-shaped massif can be seen for miles, and viewed from space reveals a perfect circular form. The name Brandberg is Afrikaans, Dutch and German for “Fire Mountain” and comes from the effect of the setting sun on the western slope which sometimes causes a vibrant orange glow. Called “Burning Mountain” by the indigenous Damara people, and “Mountain of the gods” by the Herero, The Brandberg is considered sacred, a spiritual site of great significance to the San (Bushmen) tribes who sheltered there and rendered many paintings and engravings within its caves and overhanging rocks.

Brandberg Amethyst is a master healer, speeding recovery from illness or injury, providing aid in overcoming harmful addictions, and restoring balance, health and vitality to the system. It is highly beneficial for energetic depletion, bringing clarity and increased brain function, as well as renewed vigor and a sense of peace and joy.
