Gemstones 101: The Stones That Strengthen
In our previous post on gemstones, we covered the stones that rejuvenate. This week, we bring you a whole new array of gemstones which embodies and connotes empowerment and strength.
Peridot: For Growth
August babies, here’s a cause for celebration – your birthstone, the stunning Peridot, is thought to strengthen life and bring about pesonal growth. It is said that the origins of Peridot’s name is derived from the Greek word “peridona” of which its meaning roughly translates into “giving plenty”.
Whilst change and new beginnings don’t always come easy, may your Peridot remind you of the unsurmountable growth and abundance coming your way. Generosity and growth when held hand in hand makes for the admirable qualities of a modern day hero.
Smoky Quartz: For Endurance
Smoky Quartz is believed to be nature's stone of endurance and serenity. This stone is also said to radiate calmness for a balanced mind and soul to withstand any setbacks that may come your way.
We’re firm believers that the women of Choo Yilin are unyielding in their beliefs and adamant in their values, because that is exactly what we model ourselves after. Strong and enduring – the solid ground amidst uncertainty, the Smoky Quartz represents these empowering values.
It’s easy to succumb to the visual allure of these stunning gemstones. However, beyond just being the perfect kind of eye-candy, perhaps their meaning and symbolism can help add an extra touch of individuality to the piece of jewellery. After all, nothing beats a beautiful gem with a story and meaning behind it.
