Diamond

Diamond is the most auspicious gemstone of all, and the most expensive one. It is famous for its surprising luster, hardness and beauty. Diamond is a perfect symbol of love. It is thé stone of the Sun and of Saturn.

During the Middle Ages diamond was named ‘adamant’ (from ‘adamas’ meaning ‘uncontrollable’) and it was thought to be a magic stone of great power. While this stone brought victory, strength, courage and fortitude to the wearer, it was also believed it could make the wearer unhappy.

Perhaps this was because, looking in the diamond was likened to gazing into the eye of the sun or the face of the gods.

Diamond is not a suitable stone for greedy people, it will bring out the worst in them! Likewise the Hindus accorded power, friends, riches, good luck, youth, success and death to the diamond. In the Middle East, the diamond was a powerful talisman that could provoke shamanic ecstasy.

Europeans found the first large ‘diamonds’ in the leather bag of a South African sorcerer; however it is more likely that these stones were actually rock crystals, the universal stone of choice among shamans.

Contemporary folklore states that it is better to receive a diamond as a gift than to purchase it. The stone supposedly has more power this way. Diamond increases longevity and is associated with nobility of character. It also helps candour, sincerity, fidelity and affection.

Carnelian is a member of the chalcedony-group. The name Carnelian (sometimes called Cornelian) comes from the Latin word ‘carnis’ meaning flesh and applies to any agate that is red to reddish-brown or flesh-colored. It is a close relative of sard, differing only in the shade of red.

Carnelian is a typical Virgo-stone. It symbolizes the warm blood of life. Because of its warm color it has the ability to ‘warm’ cold hearted people and is a cure for depression and pessimism.

Carnelian is also a binding and friendship stone, it strengthens family ties. In ancient times, Carnelian was used for seals and family crests.

Carnelian is thought to stop the flow of blood, help wounds heal, and aid in the curing of blood diseases. People with high blood pressure should avoid wearing Carnelian and other orange-red gemstones in general.

It is found in Brazil, Uruguay, Germany, Australia, India and China.

Bloodstone

Bloodstone (Heliotrope) is a red-dotted green jasper. It belongs to the Chalcedony/Quartz-family.

Bloodstone is a protective stone, it makes prudent and promotes idealism and altruism. Altruism or divine love is the opposite of selfishness. This is probably why heliotrope is called the martyrs stone or stone of Jesus Christ.

During the Middle Ages people thought that the stone was stained with blood from Jesus Christ when he was crucified. Therefore heliotrope is also called “bloodstone”.

Carry it to enrich iron-poor, tired blood or to help balance other blood-related disorders. Hold bloodstone against a bleeding wound to staunch the flow of blood.
