GEM THERAPY


 
You can take six different books dealing with precious and semi-precious stones and their occult properties and find six different opinions as to which do what. The reason for this is that the stones are usually corresponded with astrological planets and signs. The trouble there is (as W. B. Crow explains  in Precious Stones: Their Occult Power and Hidden Significance) that "there  are different scales of correspondences and under one circumstance one scale should be applied, whilst under another a different scale holds good . . . no natural object is pure Sun, pure Moon or Pure Saturn".

The safest way to use stones for healing, then, is in the manner of the  ancient Druids: go by the COLOR of the stone and apply the same principles used in Color Healing. For example, you know that yellow is good for intestinal and bowel disorders and menstntal problems. For these problems, then, wear a yellow stone such
as yellow diamond, jasper, topaz, beryl, quartz, amber, etc. The stone should be placed on the afflicted area for at least an hour each day and should be worn, in the form of a pendant or ring, for the rest of the day, continuing until the cure is affected.

In 640 BCE Necheps wore a jasper around his neck to cure his queasy stomach. In 1969 Barbara Anton (a graduate Gemologist from the Gemo-logical Institute of New York) advised a friend, who had suffered from
irregular menstrual periods for years, to wear a yellow jasper pendant.  So long as she wore it,her periods came regularly on a twenty-eight day cycle.

Any good book on gems and minerals will give you full descriptions of the many varieties of stones available in the full spectrum of color. Rubies, emeralds, sapphires are obvious examples of red, green and blue, but there are many other equally effective yet far less expensive stones available. Here are a few stones, together with the colors in which they can be obtained plus some of the ancient beliefs regarding their properties.
