Gemstones are mineral deposits that are usually found buried deep beneath the earth’s surface. They vary in type, form and shape and can be found in very specific areas all across the world. The different types of gemstones include the following examples: alexandrite, topaz, diamond, garnet, citrine, opal, turquoise, jade, quartz, celestite, sapphire, pearl, ruby, emerald, tiger eye and so many more. These gemstones can be divided into two major categories, which are precious and semi-precious stones. Each gemstone has its own cultural and traditional significance attached to it.
WHAT ARE THE LUCKIEST GEMSTONES IN THE WORLD?
Due to the rare nature of gemstones and the fact that they are often seen as something pretty and rare, that should be treasured, quite a number of legends, myths and beliefs have been woven around them for millennia. For instance, in some cultures, some stones are seen as harbingers of good, while having some in possession at a particular point in time can be regarded as a bad omen.
Some stones are generally regarded as heralds of great wealth, good fortune and good luck and many of them are usually in high demand because of such cultural significance. The luckiest gemstones in the world include the following:
Citrine is a very popular gemstone, which is believed to open up its wearer to good inspiration and creativity, even as it helps them broaden the realms of their imagination. It is also believed, by some people, that this unique gemstone helps its wearer to dispel of any form of negative energy, confusion, lack of inspiration and lack of motivation, as well as any distractions that keep them away from their path to success. This is the reason why citrine is usually worn by a lot of creative people who are in need of inspiration.
Pyrite is a natural gemstone that bears a striking resemblance to gold. As a matter of fact, this gemstone looks so much like actual gold that it is commonly referred to as fool’s gold.
Culturally and traditionally, it is usually said that pyrite has the power to attract prosperity, wealth and riches into the life of its wearer. Various cultures around the world claim that this belief is true, which is one of the major reasons why pyrite is often used in making jewelry pieces such as rings, bracelets and necklaces.
Amethyst is a violet gemstone that used to be a precious stone until large deposits of it were found in Brazil; the discovery of such huge amounts of it made amethyst a lot rarer than it used to be, which consequently reduced its commercial value per unit.
This gemstone is usually used in making jewelry pieces such as rings, bracelets and necklaces. It is believed that the stone has the power to attract balance, harmony and good luck into the life of its wearer. It is also believed that the stone assists its wearer in sharpening their inner voice and intuition.
Agate is one of the most common gemstones in the world, which is traditionally used in making good luck charms (particularly in ancient times). Even now, in present times, this gemstone is usually regarded by some as the most powerful crystal for attracting a ton of good luck into the life of its wearer. Others believe that agate invite good energy into the life of its wearer by helping them to balance their energy and attract good luck (particularly when it comes to money matters).
- Tiger’s eye
Tiger’s eye – or tiger eye – is another famous gemstone that is usually used for making good luck charms. It is commonly believed, in certain places in the world, that this gemstone has the power to repel evil from the life of its wearer and protect them from harm.
Some people also believe that this gemstone somehow helps a person to find and open up their part to success, good luck, good fortune and prosperity, even as it grants them access to good opportunities and keeps them protected from evil.
Aventurine is a translucent gemstone that occurs naturally in colors such as grey, green, yellow, blue, brown and orange. This gemstone has a translucent or glistening effect which is generally referred to as aventurescence. It also has a vitreous or waxy luster.
Aventurine is actually a form of quartz, which usually contains mineral inclusions that can be described as platy. It is commonly seen as a very lucky stone, particularly for gamblers who see it as a source of attraction for good luck. Some people also claim that this stone has the power to attract good opportunities to its wearer.
Sapphire is a brilliant blue precious stone that is very popular across the globe. Traditionally, this gemstone signifies royalty as well as wisdom and elegance. It also happens to be quite expensive and rare; factors which make it rather precious indeed.
However, sapphire is also known by some as a very powerful good luck stone. Some people believe that the gemstone has the power to attract prosperity to its wearer, and that it also helps people reclaim whatever riches they have lost or misplaced. Many others claim that sapphires attract good luck and good energy into the life of its wearer by helping them make good decisions.
WHAT IS THE LUCKIEST STONE?
There are many gemstones which are regarded as sources and magnets for good luck, according to various cultures across the world. However, this belief does not necessarily cut across all the cultures in the world, which is one of the reasons why there may be disparities in claims from one region to another. Therefore, there may not be any one stone that is regarded as the luckiest amongst all of them.
However, there are a number of stones whose names automatically come up when people talk about the most powerful lucky stones in the world. They include; pyrite (or fool’s gold), citrine, tiger’s eye and agate, among many others.
