Understanding Gemstone healing properties in Mala Beads

The Gemstones I choose for my Mala bead necklaces and bracelets are selected for their quality, beauty and metaphysical attributes. When I create a Mala my intention is to help the wearer by either enhancing their mental, emotional, or physical health during their meditation practice and/or daily use.

Many of my Malas use Gemstones, indeed I have a whole Gemstone collection in my online shop. And I have chosen to use certain Gemstones because of their associated healing properties, some of the most popular and my favourite gemstones are;

1.Amethyst: Known for its calming and protective qualities, Amethyst is a favourite among spiritual seekers. Its soothing energy helps to alleviate stress and anxiety, promoting a sense of peace and tranquility during meditation. Amethyst also enhances spiritual awareness and intuition, making it ideal for those seeking deeper spiritual connections

2. Rose Quartz: Often referred to as the stone of love, Rose Quartz radiates gentle, nurturing energy that promotes self-love, compassion, and emotional healing. It opens the heart chakra, encouraging forgiveness and fostering harmonious relationships. Meditating with Rose Quartz can bring emotional balance and inner peace, helping to release past wounds and embrace unconditional love.

3. Tiger's Eye: A stone of courage and protection, Tiger's Eye empowers the wearer with confidence and strength. Its grounding energy helps to balance emotions and promote clarity of thought. Tiger's Eye is particularly beneficial for overcoming fear and self-doubt, making it a valuable companion for meditation practices aimed at boosting self-confidence and achieving personal goals.

4. Moonstone: Moonstone is a mystical gemstone known for its ethereal beauty and profound metaphysical properties. It is revered as a stone of new beginnings, inner growth, and intuition. Moonstone is believed to harness the energy of the moon, offering calming and soothing vibrations that help balance emotions and promote emotional healing. It is often used to enhance psychic abilities, intuition, and spiritual insight, making it a cherished companion for meditation and spiritual practices. Moonstone is also associated with feminine energy and is said to support fertility, creativity, and nurturing qualities.

5. Lapis Lazuli: A symbol of wisdom and truth, Lapis Lazuli stimulates the intellect and enhances communication. Its deep blue color resonates with the third eye chakra, facilitating spiritual insights and intuition. Lapis Lazuli promotes inner peace and serenity, making it an excellent stone for meditation practices focused on self-reflection, spiritual growth, and accessing inner wisdom.

6. Jade: Jade is a revered gemstone steeped in rich cultural history and valued for its powerful metaphysical properties. Renowned for promoting harmony and balance, Jade is often associated with wisdom, tranquility, and prosperity. It is believed to have a soothing energy that brings emotional stability and calms the mind. Jade is also known for its protective qualities, shielding the wearer from harm and negative energies while fostering a sense of inner strength and resilience. This gemstone is deeply connected to the heart chakra, facilitating love, compassion, and generosity towards oneself and others. Meditating with Jade can enhance spiritual growth, promote longevity, and invite abundance into one's life, making it a cherished choice for those seeking harmony and well-being. I use various coloured Jade gemstones in my Malas and bracelets.
