Gemstones have been a part of jewelry for thousands of years. They have also held a central role in design and decoration since the Ancient Egyptians. When looking for gemstones to decorate your home, you need to take your time and choose carefully to match your personal style. Every gemstone, including Lapis Lazuli, comes with its own unique metaphysical, healing and mineral specifications that affect every space differently. The purpose you want to fulfill with the gemstones in your home space will determine the gemstone you should decorate it with. So, here are some gems that will suit different styles and budgets:
Onyx is a popular choice for vintage style interiors, because of its history as a highly sought after gemstone in antiquity. It can be difficult to work with, but if you are looking to decorate your home with something that will add extra uplift, you can choose Onyx. It comes in jet black and beige/brown colors, so you can easily find one that matches your furniture and decor. Not only this, onyx is known for its karmic energy, balancing ability and stirring positive vibrations in the environment.
Citrine is a yellow version of Quartz, which are often called the “Master Healer” crystals. They are said to amplify and energize any stone around them as well as the humans, which makes them a good choice for decorating in any house and with other stones. They also encourage creativity and strengthen the immune system. When selecting Citrine gemstone beads for your space, make sure it has an even saturation of color throughout the stone, as uneven or faded colors can sometimes give off a negative energy.
Topaz is a very hard stone which means it can work for many different applications. However, it doesn’t look as interesting on a wall as some stones, so if you are looking to design a space with this gem underneath your furniture or in the center of your table, make sure the color is not too pale or yellow and that you do not have too much of it. It is a great stone for adding extra weight and durability to any surface or design it is placed on.
The strong blue color of this can work well with any color pallet, from warm neutrals like cream or light browns to cool greens or darker blues. Lapis Lazuli is traditionally used in a calming or soothing manner. It works well on a platform bed of its own color, or with complementary colors. If you are having trouble picking out the perfect color for a space, you can easily decorate it with this gemstone without second thoughts.
Amethyst has a zen-like quality often associated with peacefulness and spiritual growth. It is said to bring peace of mind and clarity to the wearer, as well as stimulating the surroundings with positive energies. Most amethyst has been heat treated, so it is durable enough to be used on a floor or wall. If you are looking to add a little color to your space, Amethyst is a great choice for a focal point or in tiers. It also makes a beautiful gift.
Because it is relatively affordable, Carnelian is a good choice for people who want to bring some color into their space, but do not want to spend a lot of money. It is also a good choice for those who like earth tones, as they are very similar in shade to various shades of brown. Red orange Carnelian gemstone beads have been used for thousands of years and have historically been used as a stone of passion and inspiration and is a great stone for keeping in a house.
Not only is Jade one of the most naturally occurring gemstones, it also has the highest amount of metaphysical energy per carat. Jade is one of the best stones for rejuvenating and refreshing any space. It can be used with any color pallet, so you will have plenty of options to choose from. If you are looking to choose a gemstone that will give a space a boost, Jade is the perfect choice. Not only does it have a cool energy, but it has some great healing and revitalizing properties. It also brings abundance, and can reduce stress and tension in the wearer.
