It has become a fashion to wear gemstones and crystals as ornaments. They are seen as symbols of status, fashion and beauty. There are people who also wear them to add mystery and to show off their symbolism and spirituality. However, crystals and gemstones and metals like silver, gold and platinum are your spiritual companions and they help in balancing the energy and aura surrounding your body.
You would have come across the traditional tale regarding diamonds. It is said that one mustn’t buy diamonds for oneself. That is why they are the popular choice for engagement rings. Diamonds are considered as a protective stone and guard the wearer against adversities and bestow happiness, luck and prosperity on the wearer. However, when you choose a diamond for yourself, you open the gates to bad luck and negativity. Similarly, other semi-precious stones like rubies, emerald, cobalt and so on must be chosen with great care.
A great way to begin using crystals is by starting to wear your specific birthstone. For each zodiac sign, there is a particular gemstone. This gemstone is aligned with the stars of the wearer and hence wearing your gemstone is an easy and sure way to cause your spirit to be balanced and elevated to a higher plane. Your birthstone protects you from adverse effects and blesses you with the positive vibrations of your horoscope.
