The Healing Power of Gemstones

While there are many books, websites & folklore about gemstones having healing or magical powers, we leave the judging up to the client who is interested in such things. My interest is merely Scientific.  And since I am in continual sciatica pain, then I felt the need to explore all options.

I came across this list while browsing "American Gem Society" website. ( and thought they did a good job in telling a little about many of the Precious & Semi-Precious Gemstones. You can click the link above for the whole list.

Then I googled "healing gemstones" and found a book on called "
Healing Crystals: The A - Z Guide to 430 Gemstones" by Michael Gienger. (  This link is the eBook version preview and is very interesting. click the link above for more information and a look at the book.Kindle Edition $5.49  Upon a quick read through this book, it seems to be a comprehensive book with detailed information.

Then I tried "Folklore" to see where that would take me. And upon reading a bit, I found an article that mentioned "Haunted Gems"  
An interesting blog written in a "Halloween" mood. This article referenced The Hope Diamond,
The Koh-i-Noor Diamond, The Blood-Red “Great Imposter”- Ruby that is not a Ruby, and
The Delhi Purple Sapphire – “Cursed” Quartz. All of which are very interesting stories linked to these particular gemstones. Read more by clicking the above link.  Then I thought, well, if I was to use the folklore of the gemstones, while I am daily around gemstones of one sort or another, then I should be in no pain, in great health with both my body and mind, and prosperous. Of those of you who know me, you know that I am none of the above.   ok, so what am I doing wrong??
Back to the Folklore of gemstones. I am pretty much willing to try anything for pain relief, so I will have an update on weather or not this is for me.  I will be using a rough Amethyst. Thanks for your open mindedness in reading this little blog.  CJD.Sign
  • The most efficient and suggested way to utilize crystal and gemstone therapy is to wear high-quality beads around the neck. Metal inhibits their healing properties so rope or string should be used as a chain. Also, metal surrounding the gemstone and crystal should be avoided.
