Gemstones - The magical stones, their meaning and what sets them apart
Gemstones have been used as jewelry for many centuries. The special stones are not only known for their beauty, but above all for the healing effects and energies that they are supposed to transfer to their wearer. Certain properties, such as the crystal structure, are decisive for the healing effect of the different stones. In this blog post we want to bring you closer to these magical stones, their meaning and their effect:
In general, a distinction is made between real gemstones and semi-precious stones, also called gemstones. The following properties are decisive for the use and value of the stones: beauty (luster, colour, transparency, purity), rarity and hardness. A gemstone is a Mohs hardness greater than seven. All stones with a lower degree of hardness are referred to as semi-precious stones or gemstones.
Today we would like to bring you closer to our valuable minerals, the gemstones. Gemstones include natural diamond, ruby and sapphire.
The diamond is probably the most well-known gemstone and not without reason. The word diamond is attributed to a Latin origin - "adamas", which means indomitable. This meaning also becomes clear in the effect of the diamond, because it symbolizes not only indomitability, but also beauty and strength and gives its wearer self-confidence and willpower.

In addition to the most well-known gemstones, there are also others, as you can see here:
The ruby was given its name because of its color, which is derived from the Latin word "rubeus", which means red. Due to its vitalizing and dynamic effect, the gemstone is considered one of the strongest healing stones for love and sexuality. It is said that the ruby brings wishes and longings back into everyday life and that the courage to live out these wishes increases. In addition, the ruby gives vitality, devotion, but also morality and determination. In addition to these effects, the gemstone has also been used as a protective stone against evil for a long time.
The sapphire is a gemstone that was already known in many cultures, which is why there are different theories regarding the naming. In general, however, it can be said that the term sapphire comes from the Greek word "sappheiros" for blue. The sapphire has a good effect on the nerves and can also be used against possession. Today, the gemstone is considered the strongest healing stone for nerves, as it has a calming and strengthening effect. As a result, the sapphire also has a soothing effect on the mind and at the same time strengthens the willpower of its owner.
