All About Jet and Jade Gemstones

The new black and white collection I've created is a stunning mix of  
Jet, Jade, and Tridacna Shell. The bracelets can easily be worn for an evening out. 

I love the qualities that gemstones hold. Gemstones each have their own unique properties and can be used for holistic health purposes on all levels.

Todays post is about the three new stones I have been working with over the past week.

Jet is a highly protective purification stone. For centuries it has been used for protection from evil and all negative energies. It is also a powerful protector against psychic attack. Jet will absorb unwanted negative energies so it must be cleansed and cleared fully after use. To do this you can run your bracelet through sage, place it in a bowl and cover it with brown rice, then leave it overnight. In the morning you rinse it under cool water and leave it in the sun to dry. By placing it in the sun for at least 12hrs it will be cleansed and then recharged for you. Jet is associated with the root chakra and will aid in the rise of the kundalini energy. Jet also aids in overcoming grief.

White Jade is a protective stone that brings harmony. It is believed to attract friendship and good luck. Jade encourages you to become who you really are and will aid in emotional release. Jade is associated with the heart chakra and can attract and enhance love of all kinds.

Pure white Tridacna improves physical and mental issues on all levels. The rare white tridacna shell is found deep in the India and Pacific oceans. In medieval times the shells were used as baptisteries for holy water in the churches. Solomon Islanders used pieces of the shell as money and symbols of wealth. Indo-Pacific tribes made ceremonial figures out of the clams.

An ancient shell that has long been held to produce a huge energy field because of its long growth period. The shell is said to balance the body and soul, open up wisdom, and increase the body's immunity. Also if worn for a long period of time, it steadies the heart rate, improves insomnia, and prevents aging. This all encompassing shell is said to be used by the Dali Lama and is a Feng Shui must.

If you do venture out for a night on the town, wearing Jet will help keep you from absorbing negative energy that you often find in a nightclubs. If you have ever woken up the next morning and feel awful, it may not just be because of having drinks!

When wearing Jet you also have to be very careful to cleanse it often. It is such a strong absorber of negative energy that it probably needs cleaning daily if you wear it that much. To cleanse a gemstone bracelet you can run it through sage first. Using sage is a Native tradition that cleanses stones energetically. After smudging, I suggest leaving your bracelet in a bowl of brown rice overnight. In the morning you rinse the bracelet under cool water and set it in the sun to dry for at least 12 hrs.
