Every gemstone has it’s own energies and meaning. Your birthstone is important of course, but we are all about no limitations at Red Mare Studio. Here are just a few of our Red Mare favs

Which one matches your passions and values?

Turquoise
For centuries Turquoise has been recognized as possessing the power to protect riders from injury due to falls. First used as amulets by Turkish soldiers, on their persons and attached to their bridles and trappings.

It is a perfect companion for those who travel a lot. It protects them from thefts, accidents, or any unwanted incidences, bringing good fortune to the owner.

Historically, Turquoise is credited with being the symbol of friendship, saying that “he, or she, who owns a Turquoise will never want for a friend.”

 

Labradorite
Lore of the Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis, an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in pearly hues of mainly blue and green although rarer pinks and purples are stunning also. A Stone of Magic for shamans, diviners, healers, and all who travel and embrace the universe seeking knowledge and guidance. In need of a spiritual facelift? Labradorite awakens your inner consciousness, a world where your creativity has infinite possibilities and you can dance to the beat of your own drum.

 

 

Tourmaline
It displays a greater range of colors than any other gemstone. In fact, it comes in every color of the spectrum. Tourmaline has been said to be a stone of reconciliation, a stone that fosters compassion and cool headedness, radiates the energy that attracts money, healing and friendship, and is used for grounding purposes, to stabilize, and reaffirm our roots. It also creates a commitment towards the completion of one’s goals and is said to protect the wearer against dangers.

 

Pink tourmaline in particular represents a love of humanity and humanitarianism. It is worn to promote sympathy towards others. It is an excellent stone for healers, therapists and counselors as it allows them to better listen to and understand their patients. It carries the virtue of unconditional love and friendship. It’s also meant for people who bear a special injury in their hearts as it encourages love and gently disperses emotional pain and dissolves disruptive feelings. It calms the negative emotions that often upset relationships.

 

 

Green Tourmaline, also known as Verdelite, is perhaps Nature’s best healing crystal, channeling its energies into the center of one’s being and creating a flow of wholesome energy to all parts of the body and self. It is the masculine, or yang counterpart to the feminine heart energies of Pink Tourmaline, and enhances courage and strength, stamina and vitality.

 

 

 

Peridot
Peridot has long been called “an Evening Emerald,” for under artificial light, the stone glows a brilliant green. Throughout history, there have been many legends that state the strong magical power that peridot possesses. Legend says it is a powerful talisman with the power to dispel terrors of the night- fears and bad dreams.

Peridot has been long considered to be an aid to friendship and supposedly freeing the mind of envious thoughts, bringing happiness and good cheer, attracting lovers. What’s not to love about this beautiful stone?

 

Moonstones
One of my absolute favorites -they are infused with an enchanting, soft glow of deep vitality and creative energy. Moonstones are associated with the inner goddess, a master healer for women – it brings soothing, healing calm energy and helps regain back your power and inner balance and gives us the gift of increased intuition, the perfect prescription for cleansing the mind of negative emotions holding you back. Fear? Shrug it off. Self-doubt? You got this. With a moonstone by your side, you can do anything.

In India, moonstone is considered a sacred and magical “dream stone” that can bring beautiful dreams at night. Also known as the Traveler’s Stone, it’s believed to protect travelers at night.

Florida adopted moonstone as its official state gem in 1970 to commemorate the Apollo 11 moon landing and other spaceflights that launched from Florida.

 

Opal
Opal amplifies traits, whether those traits are good or bad, and brings characteristics to the surface for transformation. It enhances self worth, confidence and self-esteem, and helps you to understand your full potential. The stone is said to help stimulate originality and creativity.  A karmic stone- it encourages putting out positive emotions and teaches that what you put out comes back to you. The opal is also a representative of justice and harmony, and is a protective stone in dangerous places.

 

 

Peruvian Blue Opal
Is quite a rare stone that can only be found in the Andes Mountains, close to San Patricio, Peru. It’s a translucent stone that resembles the colors of the Caribbean Sea.

It has a soft and soothing energy which helps remove tension and clear the unnecessary thoughts in your head. It is said to help with communication, to find your authentic authentic voice and speak out. Its energies will inspire you to access your true self and to make use of your gifts and talents – filling you with ingenuity that to help achieve your dreams and goals.

 

 

Pink opals
Are said to fill you with tranquility and peace. It is a stone to use for emotional healing, as well as keeping your emotions in balance.

 

 

 

 

Aquamarine
The serenely colored aquamarine invokes the tranquility of its namesake, the sea. The serene blue or blue-green color of aquamarine is said to cool the temper, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded.

The stone is said to help one cultivate more inner tranquility. It is also considered by some to be a great aligner of the spiritual and the physical, for those who feel out of harmony or alignment with oneself.
