One of the things I like most about making jewelry is learning all about the gems and gemstones I use. In addition to discovering where they are mined and how they’ve been used through the years, I enjoy finding out their spiritual and healing properties. In honor of Valentine’s Day, here are some fascinating facts about gemstones believed to attract and strengthen romance: the “Love Stones.”
Imperial Topaz, a stunning golden yellow stone, is thought to draw love to its wearer.
Rhodonite, a pink or red gemstone often flecked with black, is said to nurture love and encourage brotherhood. Just holding the stone is believed to promote relaxation and bring a sense of well-being.
Chrysocolla, a beautiful green-blue gemstone, is believed to stabilize rocky relationships particularly when combined with Rose Quartz.
