Gemstone Meanings- Their history

Throughout history gems primary function was to impart its powers through healing and spiritual rituals. The power they imparted on there wearer was what made the gems so rare and coveted.

Gems are storehouses of power, which is transmitted through contact with ones body. Kings and queens would have certain gems placed in there crowns to harness there powers. They connected the monarchs with forces enabling them to rule guided by cosmic energies. Priests of different religions would also use gemstones in there rings for similar reasons. Gemstones can impart there powers in a beneficial or detrimental way depending on how they are harnessed.

The powers of gemstones are even recognized by modern day science and technology. Used in watches, lasers and computers. However the more historical use of promoting physical healing or power to help balance emotion still eludes modern science.

This will be an ongoing Saturday feature. Each week we will discover a new gemstone and there history and power.
