Gemstones and crystals in our handmade jewellery and gifts

If crystal and gemstones are new to you, here’s why we’ve incorporated them in to treats and gifts at Thank You For.

Healing crystals and gemstones have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians and Aztecs, who incorporated healing stones into jewellery, cosmetics, decorative statues, amulets, and much more. They believed in the ability of gemstones to release mental, physical, and spiritual blockages.

More recently, gemstones and crystals have achieved a resurgence in popularity and intrigue and are appreciated for their healing properties that help to balance the body, mind, and spirit. They make a great treat or gift on Mother's Day, birthday or at Christmas - for you, for a friend, or for a loved one.

In the pursuit of wellbeing

In our pursuit for physical and mental wellbeing, using gemstones and crystals in jewellery is an obvious way to connect the vibrations in our bodies with the energetic vibrations in healing crystals. Aligning these vibrations means the energy can surge from the crystal to you, to facilitate the free flow of energy on throughout the body.

Gemstones and healing crystals serve to connect our conscious thoughts with our body. Thoughts can be powerful because they direct energy. When you use gemstones in this process, the vibrations help to magnify thoughts and intentions.

There are a multitude of crystals, gemstones and meanings which support a range of intentions, from wealth and abundance, balance and vitality to rest and relaxation. Which will you choose?

Gratitude and wellbeing

In line with the ethos Thank You For holds about the importance of appreciation and gratitude for wellbeing, we recently introduced a beautiful pair of handcrafted silver earrings from Dollybird Gems, with a striking apple green, chrysoprase stone.

The power of chrysoprase crystals

Chrysoprase is renowned for its links to positivity, open-hearted optimism and insightfulness. Through a mix of compassion and forgiveness, working with a willingness to abandon petty judgements, the properties of this crystal create a robust, resilient, positive mindset - a great tonic against stress and anxiety.

Chrysoprase manifests love, growth, forgiveness, and kindness, and it’s great for guiding emotional balance and for connecting to the natural world. It’s also a healing crystal that helps soothe an overactive nervous system.

Origins

It used to be that the only source of this rare form of quartz was a region in southwestern Poland known as Lower Silesia. Dating as far back as the Iron Age, chrysoprase was a common feature in Silesian carving and masonry.

Check list

If you are to use chrysoprase to its full potential, have these three key aspects in mind:

  1. Forgive and forget to aid personal growth and to overcome difficulties.
  2. Aim to be free of toxic emotions.
  3. Lead with your heart to achieve joy and optimism.

Handcrafted with love

These piercing green chrysoprase earrings are handcrafted in Cheshire by Dollybird Gems, known for their trademark simple, effective, contemporary designs that are incredibly beautiful and easy to wear.
