GEMSTONES AND GRATITUDE
May, 07, 2021
While there is an official symbol of gratitude, there is not an official gemstone associated with gratitude. We were so surprised by this, because we believe gratitude to be the highest vibrating emotion, and had made the assumption there would be a gratitude specific gemstone.
As we were launching Gratitude Gifted, we went to many different gemstone and crystal shops all across Sedona, Arizona seeking to find the official gemstone of gratitude and never were able to find one. We spoke with many knowledgeable people in the space, and they each had their own interpretation of a stone that could best represent gratitude. We even turned to Google and yet still found mixed results about which gemstone could be considered the official one for gratitude.
We finally realized there is not an official gemstone of gratitude because gratitude is so universal and can be found anywhere. Any and all gemstones can be associated with this beautiful emotion, because gratitude is so fluid and in all things. It is positivity, it is love, it is joy, it is self-awareness, it is drive, it is a cornerstone of happiness.
GEMSTONES AND GRATITUDE
Here are some of our favorite gemstones and how they promote gratitude:
Tree Agate is known for peace and calming. A calm heart can sift through the stresses of everyday life to focus on all they have to be grateful for. This gemstone will serve as a gentle reminder to focus on calming your mind in order to focus on the blessings you have in life.
Lava Stone is a grounding stone, and encourages the wearer of this gemstone to ground themselves in gratitude every morning when they put this stone on.
Rose Quartz is the classic gemstone of love! A loving heart is a grateful heart! This gemstone will allow the wearer to cultivate love for themselves and others, focusing on the strengths and beauty of the people they come in contact with. By focusing on self-love and love, you will create the perfect foundation for practicing gratitude and show love, appreciation, and kindness in your life.
Amethyst is used for calming. When you are at peace within yourself, you can focus more easily on everything you have to be thankful for. The wearer of this gemstone is encouraged to choose to slow down for a brief moment each day and reflect on everything they have to be grateful for.
Turquoise is associated with renewal. Gratitude allows for you to renew your view on situations, people, hardships and yourself, and lean into thankfulness when you focus on that situation. Turquoise also promotes friendships, and our wish for gifting gratitude is a strengthened relationship with yourself and the recipient.
We use these gemstones in our bracelets to remind the wearer of all they have to be grateful for and that they are appreciated. Gratitude should always be top of mind in order to continue spreading it to those we come in contact with, and as we continue to manifest more gratitude in our own lives.
