Mineral Review

What is the name of natural blue stone?

Blue stone is a symbol of freedom, sky and cold. It always gives its owner a certain mystery. The entire depth of the sky is collected in precious gems. Blue stones have the strongest energy and magical powers. They are rarely found in nature, and those created in laboratory conditions are only a beautiful product, devoid of witchcraft power and natural charm.

Celestial sapphire and sea aquamarine

The blue gem – a heavenly colored sapphire – has a powerful power of persuasion. Its owner is able to influence the people around him and lead the crowd. This is the mineral of true leaders and rulers, strong-willed people. A weak person is not able to wear a natural gem; it will drain the vitality from it, and the person may even get sick. The heavenly color bestows wisdom. If the owner of the stone is a woman, then she can become a very influential businesswoman or get married successfully. Marriage will combine not only love and respect, but will also suit both partners financially. It is not for nothing that blue sapphire is a representative of the famous royal quartet. They inlaid the crowns of kings and kings so that sapphire would protect the ruler from rash actions and bad advice, awaken wisdom, and protect him from human stupidity. And now it is a mineral of wisdom and informed decisions. Sapphire also has healing properties; it is able to heal sleep disorders and treat nervous disorders. It is still believed that this is an amulet and an assistant to philosophers. Sapphire has a relative among precious minerals – red ruby. It would seem that these jewelry have nothing in common, but they are both a type of corundum. There is a legend that comes from ancient times. Once upon a time there lived a powerful demon named Yahosh. One day he fell in love, his heart thawed from eternal love and anger, but the girl rejected him. Then Yahosh decided to take over the world and throw it at the feet of his beloved, but nothing worked out for him, people rallied against the demon and mortally wounded him. The girl rushed to Yahosh, when he saw her, the demon began to cry. This is how blue stones appeared – sapphires on earth, and rubies – these are drops of the blood of a powerful demon. There is something mysterious and dark in both stones; unprecedented power and storm of passion are contained in both. The sea green stone is a delicate aquamarine. The ancients believed that the crystal was given by Poseidon, the god of the seas. Until now, it is an amulet of travelers and tourists; it will protect its owner even in the most extreme journey. The mineral is capable of changing its shade depending on the lighting. But magicians and sorcerers believe that aquamarine reflects the mood of its owner. The crystal is able to protect against gossip and slander, and creates a powerful barrier against any kind of magical influence: the evil eye, damage, love spell. If the owner of the stone experiences grief, then the mineral becomes sad along with him, its shine dulls, and the stone itself becomes cloudy. But, again, this property is inherent only in natural stones of natural origin. Blue precious aquamarines are a rare natural phenomenon. An artificial substitute created by man in the laboratory is becoming increasingly common. But the advantage of artificial crystal is that it is transparent. More aesthetic and sophisticated, but devoid of magical and healing properties. Blue gemstones have a strong influence on the owner, they calm him down, but make him more confident, give him wisdom, but do not cool passion and love. There is a lot of strength in them, but also a lot of contradictions.

Semiprecious stones

Semi-precious stones of a blue hue are more common in their natural form; people rarely resort to making these minerals in the laboratory. They are often used for inserts into gold and silver jewelry. The names of the stones are: amazonite, turquoise, moonstone, topaz. Moonstone is a mysterious crystal that conceals the light of the full moon in a yellow hue. This is the stone of dreamers and vulnerable representatives of the Cancer sign. For sorcerers, blue stones with the name of the moon can be fatal. The pebble is also called adularia. In people endowed with a magical gift, a mineral can take away all the magical power and absorb it into itself. For ordinary representatives of the human race, the crystal carries only positive vibes. Adularia is capable of attracting love, it bestows unprecedented charm on its owner. This is a talisman for young girls who want to get married; they can wear a moonstone all the time. It contains light and warmth. Adularia pendants can prolong the youth of the décolleté and neck area; beads have a similar effect. Moonstone rings can be worn by both men and women. Blue moon stones help develop children’s creative abilities and increase their attraction to beauty and art. Artists show imagination in their works, musicians’ hearing sharpens. Turquoise has a deep color with a marine tint. Pebbles are rarely pure blue, which is due to the lack of iron in the mineral. This is a stone of true love and fidelity. If you give jewelry with turquoise to your significant other, then the stone (precisely in the jewelry presented, not the jewelry you bought yourself) will preserve your love and help you overcome all life’s obstacles. The turquoise mineral protects adults and children from nightmares and insomnia. The stone will give babies fabulous dreams and help them fall asleep better. The turquoise mineral soothes the eye, allows you to relax after a hard day, and relieves stress. Amazonite is of volcanic origin, often gray-green or deep blue, less often blue. It is a relative of moonstone and has similar magical and healing properties. Treats any skin diseases, preserves the youth of the dermis longer and gives it a radiant and healthy appearance. Topaz is a delicate blue crystal. Sometimes it comes in a yellow tint. The blue stones were called the tears of the ocean. The sailors believed that the crystal could extinguish the storm and calm the water and sky. It contains the power of the elements of water and air. Suitable for men and women. For the former, it develops rational thinking and attracts wealth, for the latter it bestows pure beauty and softness. Topaz is used to make incredible jewelry; it looks equally expensive in silver and gold. But in the first, it gives its owner tenderness, and in the second, charm, charisma and self-confidence.

Ornamental blue and light blue stones

Low quality turquoise stones are often ornamental. But the mineral does not lose its magical and healing properties. The culling is carried out by man, not nature. Expensive exclusive turquoise and cheap ornamental turquoise are equally strong. It looks good even on a magnet placed on the refrigerator. And the gift will awaken and protect love. Blue and blue agates are rare. But they are also ornamental. Although jewelry made from them looks great, it favorably emphasizes the neckline and attracts the eye with its variegated colors and rich color. Agate is an excellent talisman for Taurus. He treats his patients with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and musculoskeletal system. It is believed that agate, especially blue agate, scares away evil spirits from the house. Therefore, crafts made from this mineral should be in every home. Gray-blue quartz is also an excellent ornamental material; it is often used by craftsmen in the production of exquisite sculptures. A blue gemstone of natural origin is expensive; it is easier to replace it with semi-precious or ornamental ones. From this article you will learn what stones are blue and light blue.
