Which stones should not be worn together
The jewelry industry has a rich supply of jewelry, which can contain several gemstones at once, sometimes clashing with each other. This does not mean that minerals cannot be combined. A combination of them is quite possible, if the crystals themselves don't bother.
This means that there is a combination of stones: right or wrong. Therefore, when choosing minerals by name, horoscope, belonging to the fundamental elements, feng shui or other criteria, it is necessary to take into account their compatibility with each other.
The importance of compatibility
Lovers of precious and semi-precious gemstone jewelry unwittingly enter into relationships with their energy. The impact on each person is different. For some, light pearls are suitable, for others - a dark garnet, for the third - a serpentine resembling the skin of a reptile.
When several different types of stones are present simultaneously in the setting, they also enter into relationships with each other. And the energetic influence is far from always combined in a beneficial way. After all, minerals are born in different conditions. Fire worked to bring some into being, while others have been carved by water or wind over millions of years. Some lie in the ground, suck in additives and take on color.
As a result, when, for example, diamond and malachite appear side by side in the same setting, a 'conflict of interest' begins between Fire and Earth. Instead of working for the owner's benefit, charge it with positive emotions. Stones that are incompatible with each other "in character" waste energy in a futile fight.
Natural garnet is not such a rare mineral. However, modern scientists make many attempts to 'grow' these stones under artificial conditions. This is how synthetic silicate - cubic zirconia - was created. It was raised in the USSR in 1968 for nuclear power needs.
This jewel is distinguished by a variety of colors, which natural garnet can not boast: for example, it is known cubic zirconia with an incredible shade of lavender - and, in fact, in nature, blue is impossible for these minerals.
A little theory from history
In studying the compatibility of gemstones with each other and their general impact on humans, it is important to remember and use ancient practices sparingly. The main focus at all times is the health benefits. However, kings and maharajas, emperors and sultans were sick and died just like ordinary people. But each of the rulers had a house with precious minerals and an incredible amount of jewelry.
Occult scholars have always considered it wrong to put together groups of gemstones just to decorate products. Basically, they have taken into account the color characteristics, but this is not true. As a result, unique jewels clashed with each other, which were passed on to the owner. The first to observe harmful energy in India and associated with the planets of the solar system.
In this country there is even a special decoration. They called it "navaratna". Nine gemstones are present in the necklace, seven of them refer to planets and two to deities. Ruby and emerald, diamond and pearl, yellow and blue sapphire, red coral, cat's eye and grosgrain coexist here. Indian sages considered this combination to be perfect.
The first European astrologer to make a connection between stars and gemstones was a German named Agrippa of Nettesheim. Next, let's consider which stones make up successful compositions.
- Place of birth
- Pomegranates are extracted all over the world. Their deposits are found on almost every continent except Antarctica. Pomegranates are found in Russia, USA, Germany, Mexico, Australia, Zambia, Brazil, India, Sri Lanka and other countries.
- In Russia, the largest deposits are located in Yakutia (where very rare red fire pyropes are mined), the Kola Peninsula, Chukotka and the Urals. It is the Ural mines that supply jewelers with a significant share of green uvarovite.
- In the United States, on the state borders of Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona, one of the most stunning species of this jewel is mined: the 'Ant', or 'Arizona', pomegranate.
- These tiny stones, no more than a carat and a half, are dug up by ants during the construction of their "palaces". Surprisingly, with all our efforts, it has not been possible to detect these fiery red granules by the mining method.
- Directionality of combinations
- The compatibility of stones with each other is considered in jewellery in several ways:
- the belonging to elements;
- relationships with the patron planets;
- zodiacal constellations;
- the effect of setting.
The minerals of the elements Fire and Air get along well with each other. Chinese sages have called these energies Yang. Consequently, the Water and Earth (Yin) stones match each other. Ideal choices when the energy element is the same. Compatible minerals multiply the effect on the wearer. After all, the energy gathered within is united with the power of a 'good' neighbour.
Under no circumstances should you wear jewellery containing antagonistic stones. For example, jasper with aquamarine is allowed, but ruby with aquamarine is not. Coil can be combined with coral, but not with lapis lazuli. The combination of garnet and amethyst is unacceptable because fire extinguishes water. As a result, the owner will be tormented by depression, lethargy and bad mood.
How to distinguish a fake?
Although the cost of natural stone is not high, the use of a synthetic analogue or a simple bottle is common. The mineral was synthesized at the beginning of the last century. The original purpose of artificial stone was to use it for industrial purposes.
High-quality artificially grown pomegranate does not differ in price from natural stone and sometimes even costs more. The advantage of the synthetic mineral is the variety of colours that do not exist in nature (e.g. natural blue garnets).
It is very difficult to distinguish these two stones because the basic physical properties of synthetic materials are similar to natural minerals - density, lustre, hardness. However, there are a few factors that will play a role when buying jewellery:
You can distinguish limestone by rubbing wool fabric - a natural stone becomes electrified, attracting hair or other light particles to itself, but an artificial one does not.
Fake synthetics have bright, unnatural, even coloring.
Stones that are larger than the size of a coffee bean are synthetic. There are no specimens that large in nature.
In addition, natural garnet is much harder than colored glass.
Love and hate give planets
Astromineralogy also involves combining stones with each other according to the patron planets. For example, the Sun does not get along with Saturn, the Moon and Mercury. This means that its stones (amber, garnet, ruby) cannot energetically combine with pearls, opal, crystal (the patron is the Moon).
Tourmaline, jade, jasper, topaz, carnelian are bad neighbours with sunstones. After all, they are the protection of Mercury. Same story with Venus. Its white, green and pink stones (emerald, jade, malachite, amazonite) won't work either.
Mars and Pluto are considered lunar antagonists. Capricious Venus does not tolerate Saturn and he himself has no one but the Moon and Mercury. Pluto and Mars' conflict with the Sun and Moon is reflected in the stones under their control - rauchtopaz, coral, hematite, red jasper, garnet and ruby.
Amethysts and blue sapphires, as well as charoite, topaz and blue-green turquoise, which are subject to Jupiter, cannot be combined with the stones of Saturn, fiery Mars and Pluto. They cannot be worn with onyx and striped agate (or morion).
But Uranus is friendly to Venus and loyal to Neptune, so fire opal, lapis lazuli and obsidian are quite combined with friendly malachite, rose quartz, aquamarine and tourmaline.
Selecting minerals by color
Intense amethyst looks good alongside other brightly coloured crystals. The purple mineral shades lighter stones, standing out strongly among them. Amethyst is used to make lapis lazuli and turquoise jewelry, which differ in color saturation.
Rose quartz should not be combined with red or green minerals. It will get lost in their background. Combinations with a delicate moonstone and a rock crystal are preferred.
Diamond is compatible with purple amethyst. The sparkle of a diamond will accentuate the depth and saturation of the quartz colour. Dark purple aventurine with golden "sparkle" looks good with amethyst because of a similar color scheme. You can pair quartz jewellery with pink spinel or lilac.
The opinion of a famous astrologer
Since the planets and elements are interconnected, then their action should be considered in parallel. Astrologer Pavel Globa has figured out which stones cannot be worn together. He revealed an incompatibility between:
topaz and diamonds;
blue sapphire and any pearl;
citrines and onyx;
emerald and amethyst;
morion and zirconium.
A well-known occult propagandist believes that jasper should not be used with jade, amber with hematite, pomegranates with tourmaline, topaz and rock crystal. According to his proposed astrological classification, ruby is not compatible with amber and obsidian, but carnelian is not compatible with chrysoprase and hematite.
Nowadays, jewelry wearers often look to minerals that work to attract career success and improve their financial health. To choose the right amulet or talisman, read the article 'Money stones for luck and happiness'.
Description of the grenade
Garnet is one of the ruby's most worthy rivals. They are similar in both appearance and physical properties (although ruby is a harder mineral). Outwardly, garnet looks like a transparent or translucent stone with a shiny, very smooth glassy surface.
Pomegranate protects travelers, warriors, lovers, pregnant women and people in difficult life situations.
So that the frame does not harm
There is always some kind of framing between the right stones in jewelry. The action of the metal also influences the strength of the energy coming from the jewelry. The rule of decorating with silver, platinum, gold of different colors, cupronickel or other metal shapes is also associated with the planets and constellations.
Universal options include gold, which is ruled by the Sun. Therefore, for such a setting, stones that are associated with the planets Mars, Pluto and Saturn should be excluded. Otherwise, enmity is guaranteed. Such a discrepancy will bring sickness and failure to the owner. At best (minor conflict), this will be reflected in tensions at work, in love relationships and in everyday life.
It is not recommended to frame garnet stone with gold, as well as red hematite and jasper, pink and red topaz and coral. Gold diamonds are suitable for cut diamonds, aventurines, hyacinths and yellow sapphires.
The neutral effect of gold stands out on emeralds, onyx, golden topaz and striped agates. This group also includes all translucent (luminous) stones.
The beneficial properties of pomegranates have been known since ancient times by healers.
In lithotherapy, this mineral is used for many diseases:
diseases of the respiratory system;
metabolic disorders and endocrine diseases;
and many other problems.
Legend has it that a gold-encrusted pomegranate can even relieve migraines (which modern medicine still can't deal with).
The pomegranate stone is extremely useful for a woman 'in position': it is believed to calm the course of pregnancy and guarantee a smooth birth. In ancient times it was often used to make jewellery, especially for pregnant women.
