Gems and minerals each have their own vibrational signature that we each resonate with in a slightly different way. Since our bodies are made up of minerals and base elements, and like attracts like, we are drawn to them. Everything in the world is made up of energy, so we find gems and minerals beautifully attractive because we feel in harmony with their vibration. Gems have been used in jewelry for many thousands of years for this reason. Homosapiens has used natural beauty to enhance our essence and attractiveness since the very beginning (A significant difference from Neanderthal man - it was a shift in consciousness to self awareness). Shells and pretty rocks were worn in various ways all over the body and have been ever since. Today we have gotten pretty good at making beautiful jewelry to adorn ourselves with. We use gems and minerals for all sorts of things including jewelry, manufacturing, healing, medicinal, and for decorating purposes. We just like being around beauty and there are some incredibly beautiful gems, crystals and minerals to enjoy. They have been a lifelong fascination with me as I have been picking up beautiful stones ever since I could walk. So to understand this attraction a little better let’s look at them a little closer.

Gems are made up of minerals that have taken on a higher order or vibrational frequency and thus reflect that back to us. Rocks are the lower vibrational forms of crystals and they are made up of many different elements bound together by energy. As this energy increases they take on higher and higher order. Some examples would be diamonds that start off as coal and under great pressure from the earth and heat from the core transform into beautiful crystals that are the hardest known gem on earth. This process is reflected in human beings in a manner of speaking. We are born and go through many pressures and difficulties in our lives to become the beautiful person we are today with much character and many redeeming qualities, and of course we are still growing.
Finding a beautiful Gem or Mineral is like finding the beauty that is a part of us. We see ourselves in the beauty of the gem or mineral. In fact we do this with practically everything and each other too! This is how we get to know ourselves and many would say this is God getting to know herself! Since we are all One and everything is energy the connection is there with everything in our world. Some things however we resonate with more and are attracted to because of the high vibrational qualities of that object. Diamonds are treasured because they have a wonderful reflective quality to them and are very durable. By reflective I mean the energy the diamond picks up, it gives out, so between two people who love one another this is a good thing!! Thus the diamond wedding ring is used for couples in Love. The colored gems and minerals have qualities that reflect the color as well as the structure of the crystal. So if you have a blue gem or mineral it will have the qualities associated with blue as in the chakras as well as the qualities of the minerals associated with that gem. Take azurite for instance it is a crystal form of copper carbonate and is blue. So the energy is going to reflect 5th chakra elements of communication, inspiration, and devotion, plus the elements of copper which include philosophic energy and harmonic connection. The energy of each gem or mineral will be attractive to those who are resonating in similar frequencies. For instance Rhodochrosite is my favorite gemstone because I resonate so closely to it. Being either soft red or pink this mineral radiates Love and calms all who wear this gem and anyone in the vicinity of the wearer. For those on the journey of Love this is the perfect gemstone to keep with you always. Each of the colors are represented in the mineral world and often in many different forms such as red, green, blue and yellow. There is no color on the rainbow that is not represented in the gem and mineral world. Some of the stones are even represented in multiple colors such as fluorite. Fluorite comes in many different colors including yellow, pink, green, violet, purple and blue with many variations in between. Thus the energy of Fluorite is said to enhance intuition, creativity, concentration and one's sense of order. Please take into consideration the color of the gem though as this will have a major influence on its vibrational frequency, with the purple stones having the most influence on intuition and psychic abilities. Yellow and green stones will have more of a sense of order, with growth and self or soul connections. I am sure by now you are getting the idea here. Know the mineral make up and color of the gemstone and get an idea of the energetic qualities of that gemstone. The list of gemstones is incredibly long so I will not go into it here. I will provide a few pictures that I have taken over the years to provide some inspiration to your search for the perfect gemstone. Just as a word of caution on your search, just because a certain stone is listed as your birthstone does not mean that it is a perfect match for you. Trust your feelings first, and the books second. I resonate very strongly with rubies which are the birthstone for July, but I was born in June. Of course it was only a week from the month of July and I do resonate with the pearl which is a birthstone for me. By resonate with, I mean that you will feel a connection, a love if you will for that stone, image, or energy frequency. What is really happening is you are picking up the love you have extended to the world from your energetic being and experiencing it reflected back to you. In this way you are experiencing your God-self. As I mentioned before this is done in all that you do and experience here on earth, just think of earth as an amusement park of self knowing. Yes, just like the earth we have a light and a dark side. Our journey is not to stay in the light but to get to know all of it and embrace it with Love.
Blessings to you dear ones on your journey of discovery. I truly wish you the greatest of Joy as you experience inner beauty in the objects you encounter along the path. The beautiful star sapphire you are wearing is simply a reflection of that.

As an example of the powerful effect gems and minerals can have on us I would like to share a few photos I have about a man who took gems and minerals and immortalized his culture. I speak of Vasily Konovalenko the Russian born artist who took gems and minerals and put them together in forms and shape that represent Russian folklore. The skill and vision with which he did this is captivating to the imagination and inspiring to the soul.
Below you will find a few videos that showcase Gems and Minerals and the importance they have in our society. Just remember why they are so important to us, for their vibrational frequency about which Eckhart Tolle says that crystaline gems " are the enlightenment of rocks". In our expression of enlightenment we see our selves as a precious gemstone, which is exactly correct!
