5 Gemstones Everyone Should Have

5 Gemstones Everyone Should Have

Gemstones and healing crystals are more than just the wave. Many people wear gemstones and crystals for fashion. Gemstones are worn on the ends of chains, on bracelets, beautiful necklaces, set on rings and earrings, and many other ways. While some people wear gemstones and crystals such as Rose Quartz and Amethyst for the look of these beautiful crystals, others wear them because they are aware of their incredible healing properties. At Laterra Gems, we believe that gemstones can be appreciated by everyone for their beauty and for their allure. Regardless of why you love them, here are 5 gemstones everyone should have in their collection!

1. Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz is thought to be one of the purest healing crystals around. As you can see, with its see-through and transparent color, it is associated with purity and healing. Many gemstone enthusiasts love this and will place Clear Quartz around a room to help create a clear space where the energy is cleansed. Beyond the purity of Clear Quartz, it is also associated with amplifying the energy of other gemstones so combining it with your other favorites is great too! We love to combine it with another popular gemstone – Rose Quartz.

2. Citrine

Citrine – named so because of its stunning yellow-orange tint – is referred to as the Vitamin C of the soul. This alluring gemstone was made popular by Queen Victoria in the 19th century and it’s become a favorite choice for jewelry across the world. Citrine is a translucent Quartz that is often called the Light Maker because of the long-standing belief that Citrine works wonders to expel anger and negativity of people. By expelling the negativity from your life, you can use it to manifest the good and bring more positivity into your life with it. You can see why it’s referred to as Vitamin C for the soul now, can’t you?

3. Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is the loveliest of the healing crystals (pun intended – sorry!). Not because of the light pink tint that the stone has and not because it is truly one of the best-looking gemstones out there, but because it is used to manifest love. Rose Quartz is used to help unblock the heart chakra and manifest love in all of it’s purest forms – romantic love, friendship, kindness, and brings harmony to all relationships. When paired with crystals such as Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz is amplified and thus brings about stronger bonds of love.

4. Hematite

Hematite is an earthly stone that helps those who poses its grounding energy to find stability and strength. Perfect for those looking for a gemstone that allows them to stay calm and steadfast in all endeavors. Hematite helps clear the mind and renews focus to those who choose to keep it close which can be a powerful feeling when you need to dig into difficult situations where others would waiver. The stone is a cool dark black and has made its way from South America to become a very alluring stone to those looking to grow their gemstone collections.

5. Turquoise

What can be said about a gemstone so popular that it has been synonymous with the most appealing shades of green? Turquoise is a powerful gemstone that cleanses and balances all of the chakras. Turquoise is a popular gemstone and an even more popular centerpiece for home decor and jewelry. Find the most alluring turquoise pieces at LaTerra Gems.
