Spinel And Its Magical Properties



Spinel is a gemstone that is commonly mistaken for others such as rubies for example. They are beautiful and have been said to resemble rubies, sapphires and tanzanite so much that sometimes people have not been able to tell the difference. This stone has been created in laboratories for jewelry for imitation birthstones so therefore many people think of spinel being fake. However Spinel is a real stone if you get a hold of the real thing.

This gemstone, like others, can be used to help you in areas of your life. It can be used to enhance rituals and to help heal certain ailments. In this hub you'll discover what areas in life this stone can prove to be useful for you as well as healing properties. You'll also learn about the chakras this stone can help balance.


Crystals can be used in healing, this act is called crystal healing. Keep in mind when working with crystals you should keep them charged and cleansed. Crystals cans absorb all kinds of energies, by keeping them cleansed you'll keep the negative energies away. You can use crystals in healing either by rubbing the stone on or by the area that is ailing you and visualize the pain or ailment leaving your body and entering the stone. Another thing you can do with stones is carry them on you or wear them. Some even make elixirs with them. Now keep in mind that some stones are bad for you to ingest or cannot make contact with water so be careful with what ways you use and cleanse your stones.

Spinel has been used to help relieve inflammations. This stone has also been used to speed recovery of movement diseases that have to do with muscles, bones and joints. It's also great with self healing, providing the wearer protection from bad influences of others.

Keep in mind if you do use crystal healing methods that you should continue to see your doctor. It is highly important that you do. While I love crystal healing I am not a doctor and I feel you cannot full rely on crystal healing. At least get a professional check up to see what's going on anyway.

Thank you joyce. I find that crystals help out a lot with pain. My bf has a lot of knee pain. He had a tumor removed when he was younger and ever since his knee will hurt every so often so I'll use crystals on him and it does help. I'm glad to see you are continuing to read my hubs.

As for anonymous, thank you as well.:)

Thanks for the info! I just got a small piece of red spinel today. Not all shiny but in its rough state. Still beautiful (for me at least)!
