Diamond Long held in the treasuries of kings and queens, diamonds were believed to offer access to the Divine energies. This is one reason why diamonds have been set in crowns. Putting such a stone near the brain, particularly at the forehead, can enhance one's inner vision and intuitive connection with the higher Spirit realms. Worn in everyday life, diamonds can intensify one's ability to focus consciousness on manifesting one's goals, dreams and destiny. They seem to emanate more energy for their size than any other stone, and may amplify the power of any emotional state, from uplifted to depressed. They can work therapeutically to "burn through" underlying emotional issues. Diamonds encourage us to see the Light within and to radiate that light outward, illuminating ignorance and illusion. Diamonds often carry the energies of angelic beings who are aligned with both courage and light. They encourage us to express our most sacred self.
Yellow Sapphire has long been recognized as a stone of prosperity. Those who embrace the metaphysical, often use yellow sapphire not only to assist in bringing financial abundance, but also to manifest any vision one wishes to realize. Yellow sapphire stimulates the 2nd and 3rd chakras (energy centers in the body), allowing one to put one's creative energy to use through action. It assists one in formulating plans and following them to completion. It also will assist to develop and align one's personal will with Divine will. It can help one see where perserverance is required to overcome obstacles, or where obstacles may be pointing to a misalignment with Divine will. Yellow sapphire can help one distinguish when one is being called upon to overcome a problem from when one is being asked to go in a different direction. Yellow sapphire carries a joyful, exciting energy that can stimulate visions and one's desire to manifest them. It is a wonderful ally for overcoming procrastination or fear around taking action. It can help one feel more bold and willing to take risks that may allow one to reap much larger rewards than if one "played it safe." Yellow sapphire assists one in feeling delight in the process of creation - not only in the attainment of one's goals. It sitmulates creativity and artistry and can bring new ideas of what is possible.
Pink Sapphire stimulates the gentle emotions of love, forgiveness, acceptance and release. Pink Sapphire holds the pattern of the power of vulnerability. It encourages one to be yielding and pliable, like the willow. The strength it engenders is the strength of resilience. It is an ideal stone of emotional and psychic protection for situations in which one does not have the authority to direct events, but from which one cannot simply depart. The willow lasts longer in a high wind than does the oak, and Pink Sapphire allows one to weather the storms of life without damage. It also assists in healing the wounds of past emotional traumas, and it facilitates compassion for others, even those who have wronged us. Pink Sapphire evokes the energy of the heart and conjoins it with the power of the disciplined mind. It is an excellent stone for bringing heart and mind into balance and coherence with one another. Pink Sapphire teaches the lessons of appreciation and gratitude, reminding us that love is its own reward and that the longing of our hearts for the Divine is identical to the longing which the Divine feels for us.
Amethyst is a powerful stone for spiritual protection, expansion and purification. It is an aid to meditation and can help to still one's thoughts. It can help curb overindulgence and assist one to give up unhealthy habits. It balances the nervous system and the brain. Amethyst builds a cocoon of light around one's aura or presence, creating a powerful resonant field that helps one remain clear and centered in the midst of negativity, while staying open to spiritual direction and intuitive information.
Rhodium is a durable, silvery-white metallic element that is used to form high-temperature alloys with platinum.
Silver encourages self-containment and inward reflection. It provides one with patience and perserverance and can be a window to the Soul. It supports one's efforts to go within and explore the deepest aspects of the Self and Nature. It assists one in perceiving the truth behind surface appearances. It aids one in exploring the deep inner realms of emotion and intuition. It is a favorite of those who honor the feminine aspect of nature. Silver brings attunement to the emotional self. It can assist one in embracing mystery and surrendering to the unknown. Can aid in cooling excess heat in the body and bolster the immune system's ability to fight infection.
Gold revitalizes one's physical energies and magnifies the power of most gemstones. It supports openness and integrity and builds confidence in the wearer. It is related to worldly knowlege and an understanding of manifestation. It carries the energy of the Sun, stimulating one's will to grow and stretch beyond one's current experiences. Gold can assist one in overcoming paralysis and fear, allowing one to move through difficult circumstances. It evokes strength, determination and will and can augment low physical vitality and depressive tendencies.
