How to Make Gem Elixirs or Crystal Essences

Gem elixirs, also called crystal essences or crystal waters, have been used by many throughout the ages. They are a convenient way to use the vibrational energies of the crystals for crystal healing, magick, and more. They are easy to make and can be stored for later use.

You can use one crystal, several, or even several different types to make a gem elixir. Using multiple types creates a synergy blend, which is useful for bringing together the vibrations of several stones as more than the sum of the parts, so to speak.

I recommend creating gem elixirs using what is called the indirect method, and I outline it below. This method is the safest for all crystal types because the elixir waters do not come in direct contact with the stones used. The direct method — where the stones are placed directly in the water — can be potentially dangerous if the stones used have components that may be toxic. Personally, I prefer to avoid creating potential health issues by using only the indirect method, as it seems contrary to the point of bringing in beneficial energies.

To prepare, you will need:

  • The crystal(s) whose energies you want to imbue the elixir with
  • Optionally, additional crystals of the same type(s( or quartz crystals to assist with charging the elixir
  • Two clean glass or food-safe glazed ceramic containers that fit one inside the other with some room between the smaller container and the larger one (A glass bowl and a smaller sealable glass bottle or jar that will hold the crystals work well.)
  • Two clean, dark colored glass bottles, dark blue or brown work well. one larger and one smaller for the finished crystal essence
  • A clean glass dropper – Either to fit the smaller bottle, or it can be separate.)
  • Spring water or distilled water. Some prefer rain water they have collected.
  • Vodka (80 proof or higher) or vinegar (any variety) as a preservative and to “fix” the crystal vibrations
  • A calm, centered state of mind
  • Sunlight, moonlight or a dedicated sacred space – This may be outdoors or in a window that gets sun or moon light, or it may be on your personal altar or other sacred space.
 To make the elixir:
  • Clear the crystals you will be using. You may also charge them if you wish.
  • Take your prepared crystals and other items to the place you will make the elixir.
  • Center yourself and clear your mind of concerns as much as possible. Prayer, breath techniques or meditation can help with this.
  • State your intent for the elixir out loud. Ask the Divine and the crystals themselves for assistance with making this elixir for the highest good of all concerned.
  • Place the larger container you will be using to charge the water with the crystal energy where you will be creating the gem elixir.
  • Place the crystal(s) in the smaller glass container. Seal it if possible. (Alternately, the larger container can hold the crystals and the smaller container the elixir — just reverse the instructions about the containers below if you wish to do it that way.)
  • Place the smaller container in the larger container. Be sure the smaller container is stable and will not fall over.
  • Carefully pour as much water into the larger container s you can without allowing any of the water to get into the smaller container.
  • Optional: Arrange the additional crystals or quartz crystals around the outside of the container, pointing in toward the container.
  • State your intent and ask for divine guidance and crystal assistance again, for the highest good of all concerned.
  • Leave the containers in the sunlight, moonlight or sacred space for four or more hours.
  • Afterward, remove the inner container and carefully pour the charged water from the larger container, called stock or mother essence of the gem elixir, into the larger of your bottles, filling it halfway.
  • Fill the bottle the rest of the way with the vodka or vinegar for preservative and seal it.
  • Add a small portion of the preserved mother essence gem elixir to the smaller bottle for immediate use. You can use using  spring or distilled water if desired to dilute it or you may use it straight.
  • Thank the Divine and the crystal(s) for helping create this elixir.
  • Clean everything used and store safely for future use. You may dispose of the water the crystals were in using any safe method.
Crystal waters can be made the same way for immediate use only, with only one bottle for storage and do not add the preservative. These crystal essences can be stored for a few days in the refrigerator in a sealed container, but should be used quickly.  You may also charge the waters with Reiki or Seichim energy for healing, if you wish.

Soft stones should not be placed in water as they may dissolve or “melt”. Anything with a mohs hardness of 4 is likely to  dissolve. You can check regarding the hardness of the stones you wish to use by looking them up at mindat.org or gemdat.org. For softer stones, rather than using water to hold them, you may tape them to the container where the stock or mother water is being made, or you may put them inside a bowl or container the mother water container is put in.

Our relationship with healing crystals | Gemstone jewellery properties

 

 

 

Crystals are amazing, they were forged during the Earth’s creation and have been used by humans since the dawn of our time.

They are a huge part of our daily life and we mostly don’t even know it. They are used in satellites, mobile phones, watches and even used to create the electronic equipment to help power our spacecraft! They have been invaluable to our evolution & have literally helped us to fly to the moon.

Our ancestors knew the different healing powers that each crystal holds, they were used in medicine and as sleep aids, even given as a form of protection. So, it is not surprising that to this day gemstones are still a large part of our lives. Most of us not even realising the reasons we are attracted to them. They have a way of coming to us at the right time without us even knowing why. Perhaps as a gift from a loved one or being captivated by a piece of jewellery as we pass by a shop window.

No two stones are identical, rather like us humans. They all come with their own imperfections and quirks. Each little stone created in the earth has an individual power to help inspire or heal you.

Wearing natural Gemstone jewellery is much more than just decorations even if we don’t know it. We absorb the energy from the stone through our skin, every touch can help us to heal both mentally and physically and find a deeper connection to the world around us. The stones can even change as they absorb our energy in return, they sometimes change colour or gain new imperfections. or the vibrations you get when touching the stone can change. they can consume negativity, help us to become more susceptible to love or aid in healing old wounds.

When you hold a crystal in your hand you can feel the heat radiating from it. You pulse with the energy that was used to create this perfect piece of nature.

Rose Quartz is used as the ‘Love stone’ It helps us to attract love an improves fertility.

Onyx can help dissolve stress, it is a grounding stone, it helps you feel safe and gives you a connection to the earth.

Amethyst is a balancing stone. It helps dissolve emotional issues and can cure nightmares. The list goes on and on. Whatever your requirement is there is always the perfect gemstone for you.

Of all the reasons to own natural gemstone jewellery personal preference is the greatest. Go with your instincts, do a little research, find the right piece that feels as if it was created for only you.

Bathing With Stones And Crystals

Baths are a great way to benefit from crystal energy.  Many people find that bathing with rose quartz, clear quartz points or other water safe crystals or even   plain old rocks enhances the bathing experience dramatically. The water also clears and vitalizes the crystals as well.
Bathing with the crystals is also a good way to commune and attune with stones because the water will enhance the vibration of the stones and help amplify your sensitivity and ability to connect and harmonize your energy and awareness.

I’ve bathed with crystals and rocks quite often. I discovered the benefits when we lost the stopper for the Tub at our old house and used a big ordinary old rock to hold a rubber flat stopper down and noticed that the baths became much more refreshing. After we got a plug and removed the rock I noticed a decrease in the vitalizing quality of the baths, we started bathing with rocks again because it did make a difference.

A related bath method for aura cleansing is to use sea salt in the tub. This may be harsh on soft crystals it is fine for people. A combination of Sea salt, Epsom salts and Bicarbonate of soda is also used for this sometimes. Usually it is suggested that ten minutes is long enough for a bath in this combination. A few drops of lavender or other essential oil or a few cups of strong herbal tea can also be added to your tub.

You can use flower essences, herbs or essential oils in the bath with your crystals and stones.

You can put stones and crystals in your bath directly, or use infused gem water, gem elixirs or Gem essences. These are usually made by placing stones in or around water and infusing or charging the water with the gem energy.

Gem waters are usually those where the crystal or stone is simply kept in the water for a while before the water is used. Gem Elixirs and essences are made by charging the water with the stones in sunlight, moonlight or with crystal Shakti energy or by intention or in ritual.

Elixirs can be used without being diluted /expanded before use. Gem essences are made from the elixirs and are extended and can be preserved in the same way as flower essences with the addition of a little Brandy, glycerine or vinegar.  A few drops of a commercial or home-made gem essence are enough to carry the gem vibration through the water.

You can also add elixirs or essences to a spray bottle of water and spray this on the walls of the shower stall and shower head. These sprays are also used for aura and room cleansing.

You can run crystal energy as a Shakti into the tub either directly if you have that ability or have been attuned to one of the systems that works with crystal Shakti

Some people find it effective to hold a stone in their receptive hand (usually the left in right handed people) and place their projective hand in the water with the intention that the energy be transmitted to and held in the water.

Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz crystals, Rainbow Quartz and Granite are among the most favoured stones for bathing with. Most of the members of the quartz family make good bath companions these include Amethyst, Aventurine , Carnelian, Garnet, Rose Quartz, Citrine, Chyrosphase, Bloodstone, Jasper, Agate, Onyx, Tigers Eye.

You will probably want to put small stones in a cloth bag or a colander or some other container which is also bath safe so that the crystals cannot go down the drain or get chipped.  A seashell such as abalone can be used as a container. It is best to avoid putting glass in the tub because of the possibility of breakage.  Some people make a slit in a sponge so that they can slide a crystal into the centre to protect it. It is possible to buy small bowls carved from marble, jade, carnelian or adventure etc. one of these could be used though the cost of these bowls may be prohibitive for bath use.

Some stones can chip or crack in hot water you probably won’t want to put the most precious and perfect stones in the bath. There are quite a few stones that could be dissolved or damaged in water Halite (salt), Sylvite, Desert Rose Selenite, all Selenite, Gypsum, Angelite, Azurite, and Talc. Calcite, Alabaster, Sulfur dissolves in salt water. I have been told that any stone that has a name ending in ite can possibly be damaged by water though I am not sure about that. There are stones that rust like iron ore or can be toxic such as stones with copper, lead and arsenic these should never be used in your bath.

Another way to get crystal energy into your bath is to put a charged stone in with your bath salts or bubble bath and use intention to charge the salts with the energy.  You may like the energy from keeping a small crystal point in the bottle of shampoo or liquid soap or shower gel. There was once a shampoo (Prell) which   was sold with a cultured pearl in the bottle in the 50s. You may also enjoy experimenting with putting colour in your bath water for healing purposes.
Here are some qualities and uses for coloured quartz stones that might be used to charge your bath water.

Or maybe you are planning to start a collection of stones or gemstone jewellery, and need some ideas on which ones you would like for your collection.

Below are some fun, creative and simple uses for your stones and crystals.

Fall gemstones
Put them around your home!

  • Place a protective stone, such as black onyx, hematite, or black obsidian, outside by your front door to prevent negative energies, including burglars, from entering your home.
  • Place a rose quartz on a table or shelf in a frequently used room, such as a living room, family room, or den, to fill your home with love and harmony.
  • Decorate with seasonal stone colors.

Put them in your car!

  • Placing a golden tiger-eye in your car will help to protect you and your car against accidents. Place the stone in a secure place where it will not roll around or get lost. I suggest wrapping it in wire, attaching it to a cord or chain, and then hanging it from the rearview mirror.

Bring them to work!

  • Place a quartz cluster or purple fluorite cluster next to your computer to help protect you from its electromagnetic field.
  • Place a smoky quartz on your desk or in your work space to protect yourself against the stress and frustration of your coworkers or clients.

Bring them with you on your next vacation or business trip!

  • Carry an aquamarine or moonstone with you for protection while traveling.

Clear the air!

  • To disperse negative energy, use a black or dark stone, such as onyx, obsidian, tourmaline, jet, apache tear, smoky quartz, or hematite. These stones, when placed about a room, home, or other area, work as environmental cleansers that purify the area and protect it from negative energies.

Fight pain!

  • Lapis, malachite, and bloodstone are good pain relievers. Place them on the affected body part or area of the body until the pain lessens.
  • Tape a carnelian to your lower abdomen to relieve the pain of menstrual cramps.
  • For a headache, place an amethyst, amber, or turquoise stone on your forehead, or, if you have multiple stones, place them around your head.
  • In the case of a migraine, lapis has been used since the time of the ancient Egyptians, if not longer.

Get a good night’s sleep!

  • Place an azurite, amethyst, or sugilite on your forehead or under your pillow to increase your dreams.
  • A garnet or amethyst under your pillow will help you to remember your dreams.

  • Can’t sleep? Place a rose quartz or amethyst by your bed or under your pillow to combat insomnia.

  • To relieve stress, worry, fear, and anxiety, use one of the following: aventurine, black tourmaline, black onyx, lapis, sodalite, chrysocolla, rose quartz, citrine, or snowflake obsidian. Use one as a “worry stone”. A worry stone is a stone that you keep with you, and whenever you feel worried, stressed, or anxious, you take it out and rub it with your fingers. You can also wear it in jewelry, bathe with it, or massage with it.
  • For depression, use amber, smoky quartz or citrine in any of the aforementioned ways.

Spark your creativity!

  • Carry or wear an amazonite, azurite, carnelian, chrysocolla, or citrine to get your creativity flowing.

Improve your communication skills!

These stones work best when worn as a pendant that hangs close to the throat, but they can also be worn as earrings, or held, or carried in your pocket.

Strengthen your intuition!

  • To do this, hold a moonstone, chrysocolla, or amazonite to your third eye (brow).

Meditate!

  • Meditation crystals can be held, placed on the third eye, or placed before you as a visual focal point. These crystals include: clear quartz, amethyst, celestite, apophyllite, charoite, sugilite, azurite, labradorite, and yellow calcite.

Spread the love!

Rose quartz is THE love stone. Use it to attract love; to increase romance; to strengthen love between friends, lovers, and family members; to make a friendship blossom; to mend a broken heart; and to keep any relationship balanced, peaceful, and loving. No matter what the situation, if it has to do with love, rose quartz is the stone that does it all. But there are, of course, other stones of love.

Here are just a few examples:

  • To attract love, use magnetite or a tantric twin. A tantric twin (also called a soulmate stone) is a stone in which two crystals, such as clear quartz, amethyst, or citrine, of about the same size are joined together side by side.
  • To heal the heart, place pink agate, pink kunzite, or pink tourmaline over the heart, or wear as a pendant that hangs close to the heart.
  • To balance relationships, use peridot or rhodonite.
  • To increase or enhance loving feelings, use emerald, ruby, garnet, or diamond.

Love stones can be worn, carried, held, or bathed with. Place them throughout a room or home to create a more loving atmosphere. Put one next to your bed to increase romance and intimacy.

Add some spice to your sex life!

  • Use carnelian, garnet, or red tiger-eye to increase passion, sensuality, and eroticism.

  • For prosperity, place a citrine in the “wealth corner” of your home. This is the corner to the left of and furthest away from the front door. If this is where your bathroom is, do not put the stone in there, otherwise any wealth that you acquire will go right down the toilet!
  • Wealth comes in many forms other than money and material things. Being surrounded by a loving family can make someone feel wealthy. To bring wealth of any kind, wear or carry green aventurine, peridot, bloodstone, emerald, jade, or pyrite (fool’s gold).
  • Keep a green aventurine in your wallet or purse to make your money multiply.

Bring good luck!

  • Wear or carry a green aventurine or golden tiger-eye with you.
  • Bring a green aventurine with you to the casino. Wear it in a pouch around your neck, keep it in your pocket, or hold it while you are playing.

Tips for Buying Semi-Precious Gemstone Jewellery

Semi-precious gemstone jewellery is as versatile as it is beautiful. Gemstones are available in a wide variety of cuts and colours, and they can adorn everything from clothing to rings. The following tips will help consumers understand how to buy semi-precious gemstone jewellery, what to look for, what to ask, and how to get an idea of the monetary value of a piece before making a purchase.

What is a Semi-Precious Gemstone?

The term ‘semi-precious gemstone’ encompasses gems of many characteristics and all the colours of the rainbow. They are distinguished from precious gemstones such as diamonds, rubies, and emeralds, mainly due to their greater availability. The price and value of an individual stone or class of stones is set by the market and can fluctuate a great deal; what is valuable and precious today can drop in value as new deposits are discovered or increase as the source dries up. Some semi-precious gems, such as amethyst, were once considered precious due to their rarity. New sources of amethyst have increased the supply and reduced its perceived value in the marketplace. However, it would be a mistake to assume that a plentiful supply of raw materials means that semi-precious gems are substandard or diminished in beauty. A well-cut, flawless topaz or aquamarine in an extraordinary setting is every bit as beautiful as any precious gem. Some semi-precious gems, such as tanzanite and alexandrite, are very valuable; jewellery containing paraiba tourmaline is pricier than some diamond jewellery.

A Short History of Semi-Precious Gemstones

Semi-precious gemstones have been used for enhancement and jewellery-making in nearly every culture, dating back thousands of years. The rarity and difficulty in finding and cultivating most gems made them very precious to early civilizations. New technologies, treatment methods, and sources of gemstones have made them more readily available and easier to enhance and finish. Some gems are considered sacred to different cultures and religions due to healing powers they are believed to possess. Jade has been heavily regarded in Asian cultures for its beauty and mystical qualities. Moonstone is widely used in modern paganism. Many other semi-precious gems such as quartz, amethyst, tourmaline, and tiger’s eye are used for the treatment of nervous disorders, arthritis, and depression.

How Gemstones Are Evaluated

The factors that determine the value of an individual stone are the cut, colour, clarity, flawlessness, and size. Due to the variances in the characteristics of gemstones, such as opacity, they can be analysed in the same manner as precious gems or graded like stones. Opaque stones such as opals and jade are graded on a scale of A to AAA, as well as on flawlessness and finish. Here are the main things to look for in a semi-precious gemstone.

Cut

The cut of a stone determines value. Cut is not only the shape of the finished stone, but also the surface area. A precision-cut stone with well-proportioned facets produces a finished gem of superior brilliancy, colour, and light reflection.

Clarity

Clarity refers to the flawlessness of a gemstone, or the absence of marks, inclusions, and blemishes.

Colour

Colour is rated by vivacity, intensity, and saturation. A colour that is bright, in the medium range, with no cloudiness is considered the best quality.

Carat

A carat is a unit of weight in gemmology. One carat is equal to .200 grams. However, size is not always a determining factor in valuing a gem; a badly cut or coloured large stone with numerous flaws is lower in value than a smaller but more perfect specimen.

Treatment

A natural stone is more valuable than a stone that is treated to enhance colour. Treatment methods affect the value of a gem as well. Stones that are dyed or filled to hide flaws are of low quality. Heat treating gems to enhance colour creates a lasting bond and permanent colour change.

Transparency

This is not the same as opacity. Transparency in a gemstone is measured by how much light is diffused throughout the stone; the more transparent a gem, the higher the value.

  1. Learn that factors that distinguish a quality stone from one that is substandard.
  2. Remember that pictures are not always a true representation of a piece. Differences in colour or an inability to determine scale can make the decision to purchase a piece more difficult; ask for clarification or additional information when in doubt.
  3. Know the right questions to ask the seller about the piece of jewellery, and don’t be afraid to ask them. A listing for jewellery should tell the size of the stone, usually in millimetres, as well as the total measurement of the whole piece of jewellery. It should also list the weight of the stone in carats or grams, or the total weight if there is more than one stone. To get a rough measure of the weight of individual gems, take the total gem weight and divide it by the number of gems. A listing for gemstone jewellery should state whether the stone is natural or treated, and the method of treatment. If this information is not listed, send a message asking for clarification before purchase, and get a written appraisal, if available, and certificate of authenticity.
  4. The setting is important as well. Natural stones are set in a manner that allows the stone to “breathe.” Typically gemstones are prong set in a slightly elevated manner or have a small hole in the setting directly behind the stone.
  5. Determine if there are any visible imperfections such as inclusions, cloudiness, or other flaws that decrease value.
  6. Know the different types of settings and closures. A quality gemstone in a shoddy or cheap setting is no bargain, even at a bargain price. A lobster claw or screw closure is generally more secure than a clasp closure. These are the most common types of settings for jewellery:
10-, 14-, or 24-Karat Gold This is the percentage of gold present in a setting. Pure gold is 24 karats, while 10- or 14-karat gold is the amount of gold present, mixed with another metal, to make a total karat weight of 24.
Gold Filled This type of setting is made by layering gold over another filler metal; it will have the initials ‘gf’ after the karat weight.
Gold Plated Gold plating is created when an amount of gold between .15 mls and .25 mls is electronically plated over another base metal; the initials “GP” must be stamped on the back or inside of the item.
Vermeil Vermeil is constructed of gold plating over a base of sterling silver.
Fine Silver This is a setting with a content of at least 99.9 percent silver, it is very soft, but relatively tarnish-resistant compared to sterling silver
Sterling Silver Sterling silver is registered at 92.5 percent silver mixed with another metal, usually copper. It is stronger than pure silver, but tarnishes easier.
Silver Plated A base metal with an electroplated coating of between .15 – .25 mls of sterling silver.

NOTE: Gemstones can also be affixed by wire or thread, usually made of either natural silk or nylon. 7. Buy what excites the eye. Perceived market value is no substitute for the beauty of a well-crafted or unusual piece, regardless of any other consideration.

Conclusion

In the end buying jewellery is a personal experience. What is beautiful to the individual eye is precious to that person. Some types of gemstones have a personal meaning or association and therefore have a greater value to the owner. Armed with knowledge of what to look for in semi-precious gemstone jewellery, the buyer can make an educated decision on finding the best quality and value.

Amber is not actually a gemstone but is used the same way as others for various purposes.  It is usually golden yellow but can vary to light yellow to green, to almost black or red. It is the fossilized sap of ancient tree that grew millions of years ago. Sometimes an amber piece will have plants or an insect trapped inside. For attracting love try to find a clear translucent nugget or bead. You can tell real amber because it warms when held. It brings success to any endeavour and will promote self-healing from other emotional hurts suffered in the past. It will help you be ready for a new love.

Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli is a dark mysterious midnight blue stone treasured by the ancient Egyptians. Its colour is rich, dense and not shiny.

Lapis Lazuli helps you to think clearly and make good choices, a something we need when looking for love. It will enhance your intuition and help you look in the right places for an honest love.

Moonstone is associated with the moon – always a stimulator of love. It’s a gemstone that is especially helpful for women as it boosts the pheromones that attract sexual energy.

Rose Quartz

According to legend Cupid brought Rose Quartz to earth because its beautiful colour arouses love and desire. It is pink and transparent and was often given as a love charm for young girls in ancient cultures. Rose quartz has been known to open the heart to beautiful things. As a stone of lasting friendship, it sometimes shows love that is waiting there to blossom in someone we think of as only a friend. Rose quartz can help open our eyes to this type of love.

Topaz

Topaz is a love gem because it helps us to realize the joy in life! You cannot attract love if you are withdrawn, angry or resentful about past mistakes in relationships.  Happy people are attractive people and topaz will boost your good mood and help banish the blues. It’s a great gemstone to take to social events because it helps you to relax and be open to new people.

Do gemstones really work?
