Stones for the Seasons
You may find that specific stones are best suited to a particular season. Citrine and yellow topaz are two examples. These two soothing crystals are wonderful energizers; they hold sun energies and are excellent for raising negative thoughts that persist on overcast days. On dark days, someone suffering from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) will benefit from wearing one of these “sun-bright jewels.” It’s no surprise that yellow topaz and citrine are both November birthstones. In the summer, these stones will feel “too hot” to hold. Pearls and coral are more relaxed stones that are better for hot weather. Springtime is all about emeralds and turquoise. Autumn sapphires and opals

Why Are We Drawn to Gemstones
Rocks are beautiful. We used to enjoy digging them out of the dirt and keeping them in our hands as adults. A child’s first set is often an array of colored rocks found in the playground or fished out pebbles from the creek’s bottom. You may have stored these natural treasures in an egg carton or a cigar box or even concealed them under your bed for safekeeping.
Gemstones as a Present
Setting Options: Gold or Silver
It’s also vital to choose the suitable metal to cover your stones in or use as settings for your gemstones in rings, pendants, and brooches. The properties of rocks are strengthened or magnified by silver. Gold, on the other hand, has the opposite effect, taming overpowering stones. If you’re hypersensitive to stone energies, gold is a good option because it reduces the stone’s vibrational pulse, making the soothing effects more gradual and enabling the wearer to transition from imbalance to equilibrium more quickly.
