Gemstones and their magical properties
In the past, jewellery was much more than a decoration and beauty object. Minerals and metals employed in the jewellery were selected and combined together to create a desired “magic” or “healing” effect, to bring help and protection against particular ills or enemies. Talismans and amulets were sought after as powerful instruments in the struggle with evil forces and different diseases, as important “magical tools”.
What are the “magical” properties that the minerals which compose various gemstones may possess? It is believed that minerals can accumulate and channel large amounts of energy to the wearer, as well as enclose and transmit to the outside various codes (information), fulfill protective functions, influence mood and temperament of its wearer, etc.
Most minerals combine not one, but several aspects of magical powers. After centuries of observations and studies it is possible today to distinguish between “happy”, “unhappy”, “friendly”, “unkind” stones, and so on.
Some stones, under special conditions, are capable to emit a powerful, coherent beam of light. This effect is known as laser radiation.
From various ancient sources we learn about miraculous crowns and necklaces decorated by gemstones (mainly Rubies and Diamonds) that were able to deeply affect mentality of the wearer.
The laser beam, although barely visible, can penetrate deeply into a living tissue.
For example, Alexandrite is capable to create such radiation continuously. Alexandrite laser is used in engineering to evaluate the temperature and pressure of gaseous environment. Installed in the front part of airplane, an Alexandrite gage warns pilots about possible turbulence in advance.
Laser effect may indeed be the source of many magical properties of gemstones. Special method of photography (developed by Kirlian) revealed that different crystals have different radiation spectra. Even crystals of the same mineral have strictly individual radiation. In fact, each crystal has its own “energy encryption”, “crystal fingerprints”.
Besides emitting its own radiation, many crystals have the ability to change – absorb, reflect and redirect an external radiation, in particular sunlight. As the result , we observe colors and color changes in gemstones. Many precious and semiprecious stones are transparent and have a strong shine, it means they have an ability to absorb and reflect and consequently, to change radiant energy. Scientists have established that color of minerals is connected to ions of the elements capable at insignificant external influence to give up electrons, entering in a crystal lattice.
The gemstone "breathes” lives its own internal life. Its external manifestation makes a set of qualities which name “magical”.
Magicians and sorcerers were the first to pay attention to the relationship between person and stone. The first thing people pay attention at, is a dependence of "magical" properties of a stone on its color and color’s intensity. Stones of red, violet, dark blue, green colors have the strongest influence on the person; yellow minerals and rocks influence to a lesser degree.
Diamond stands apart among colorless stones. Influence of Diamond is so substantial, that can change the fate not only of its owner, but also of his relatives.
Tiny additions of some metals, such as iron, copper, manganese, chrome, lithium can have a significant effect on the energy of a crystal.
Dr. Carl (Karl) Ludwig von Reichenbach was one of the first scientists who investigated unusual phenomena in crystals. He established that around the stones there is a certain force field, not visible and not felt by the majority of people. Any self-organizing system, whether it be a mineral or a person, acts as an oscillator with the certain frequency of fluctuations. When frequencies coincide, there is a resonance, i.e. an information and energy exchange between the stone and the person.
Be adjusted on your gemstone frequency, and you receive effect.
Some magical properties of minerals are connected with their natural weak radio-activity. It is typical for Carnelian and Amber. The ability of Carnelian to stir up, strengthen the body and to inflame passions is caused by a tiny amount of radium. That is why it is recommended to be worn not constantly, but periodically.
Every stone has its own magical power and its own philosophy. During the whole history of mankind people searched for a philosophical stone, not suspecting, that each person has his own one.
If you look closely at a stone, you'll see, that it lives its own full life. It is alive and can feel any shades of mood, accept them or not accept, it can serve you, protect you, and it can even manipulate you or guide you.
Brought into human society, a natural gemstone which once was a piece of mountain or simply an element of the earth became separate and individual formation, it was born anew.
But stone bears with itself spirit of that place, whence it has came, a smell of that sea, light of that sun, and also century wisdom of the earth, the sky and ocean. In each natural gemstone - and in each product from it the history of the earth and, certainly, the person is embodied.
