Effects of Wearing Gemstones
The more precious stone a person wears, the more strongly the person will be charged with cosmic forces, which radiates out into the person’s surroundings.
Sometimes the stones eliminate disease, pain, and misfortune out of the human and etheric body of the person who wears them. Ruby and Coral fade when a person suffers from anemia. Other stones such as turquoise lose or change color when the wearer is not well. Some gemstones have vibrational frequencies, which can inspire spiritual and higher soul awakenings, or which help to become more responsive to the concept such as the amethyst or the indigo sapphire.
Some stones do well when they are cut and polished. Amethyst serves better in crystal or raw form. When you purchase stone, try not to worry too much about cost. It is better to spend money to prevent sickness and disease or to align and balance yourself properly than to spend it on medications and doctor bills.
Please be open and receptive about the stones. Let the stones select you, and let your intuitive guidance direct you to do what you need to do at that moment.
