Gardens and Gemstones
Crystals and mineral specimens are sought for both their exquisite natural beauty and also for their specific healing properties. This makes them an ideal use for garden and decorating applications as they not only beautify plant arrangements but help the plants flourish and grow.
Here are some stones and the favorite plants to put them with:
MOSS AGATE is the ultimate gardener’s stone. Favorable for any plant, it will boost your own green thumb and help you find secret treasures in the earth. Plants respond to moss agate with a spurt of growth and an abundance of new leaves. It is a stone of prosperity. Moss agate tumbles add healing properties and a finishing touch to your plant pots.
ROSES love ROSE QUARTZ. It helps the blooms to maintain their petals longer, and helps prevent the edges from turning brown as they finally fade. Rose quartz can also help keep your own skin feeling soft and supple.
All plants that have a lemon or citrus scent/taste will benefit well with CITRINE. Citrine generates a healthy, sunny energy that enhances the citrus aroma and taste.
GINGKO BILOBA promotes good memory and supplies more oxygen to the brain. These properties can be enhanced with placing LAPIS LAZULI and IOLITE where it grows.
CARNELIAN tumbles give richness and a fiery strength to PEPPERS, TOMATOES, POPPIES, NASTURTIUM, MONARDA and all members of the MINT family.
GARLIC and all other ALIUMS, QUINCE, PEPPERCRESS, LILLIES, GLADIOLAS, PANSIES and BLACK VIOLETS, GRAPES do well with TIGER IRON. Tiger Iron is a combination stone that can contain stripes of JASPER, TIGER EYE, black and red HEMATITE and PYRITE layered against each other. Their energies are vibrant and long lasting, and when they all come together in one stone you have a powerhouse.
LAVENDAR, BASIL, SAGE, BLUEBERRIES, PLUMS do nicely with AMETHYST.
APPLES, STRAWBERRIES, TULIPS, LETTUCES, CELERY all benefit from AQUAMARINE.
CHICKWEED, RASPBERRIES, CHERRIES, BLACKBERRIES, HONEYSUCKLE respond well to BLOODSTONE.
