Chinese heavenly god and the Chinese earth god decided to create
Chinese Astrology and associate Chinese horoscope signs with animals
of planet earth, they concluded that each Chinese horoscope sign
would need a sort of a powerful material that would not only
represent the sign itself, but it would also develop a strong
connection, a spiritual relationship with individuals that belong to
So the great
Chinese gods created and collected the twelve most valuable and
powerful gem stones on planet earth. These where: Garnet, Aquamarine,
Pearl, Amethyst, Opal, Topaz, Emerald,
Peridot, Citrine, Diamond and Ruby.
Then by studying the attributes of the gem stones they assigned each
gem to a Chinese Horoscope sign. These gem
stones would protect and bring luck to the possessor. Let's talk
about the attributes of the first six lucky Chinese horoscope gemstone
rings and their association with Chinese Astrology and culture.
Chinese Horoscope sign: Rat
Garnet is mostly associated with love, loyalty, passion, mental
health and women's needs. Garnet usually comes in deep red colors,
that is why Chinese like to call it "The Blood Stone". It
is a gem stone that is very hard, which makes it suitable for wearing
or for decoration purposes. Chinese use Garnet
to alternatively cure severe melancholy and depression. Little pieces
of Garnet are traditionally given to Chinese pregnant women to help
them with their pregnancy. It is also known to stabilize a woman's
menstrual cycles. A Chinese legend claims that if you tie a piece of Garnet
in your front door it will protect your house against thieves.
Chinese Horoscope sign: Ox
Aquamarine is associated with peace, tranquility, physical health,
women and the spirit of the goddess. Aquamarine has an one of a kind
transparent blue color that will bring calmness and mental clarity.
According to Chinese legends, aquamarine
was created by the great Chinese god of the sea who had the form of a
sea monster. Then it was given as a divine gift to the Chinese
goddesses of the sea in order to charm them. It is very common for
Chinese fisherman to carry a piece of aquamarine to invoke the
goddesses to bring them luck and protect them when sailing.
Traditional Chinese doctors use it to cure digestive problems by
dropping aquamarine jewelry into glasses of water and of course
removing them a few minutes later, after aquamarine has acted.
Chinese Horoscope sign: Tiger
Sapphire is highly associated with good
luck, guidance, and enlightenment, money,
prosperity, peace of mind, leadership, inner strength and self
confidence. Chinese use it to send away negative energy and wicked
thoughts and bring amiability and fulfillment. Chinese legends claim
that Sapphire Ring
will open your mind and show you the way to connect with your inner
self and god. Sapphire is commonly used in China for concentration
and visualization exercises because of its magnificent ability to
inspire, and stabilize your mind. Sapphire
is a gem stone associated with oracles, dreams and the art of seeing
into the past and the future. Chinese call it "The Third Eye
Stone" and use it to cure physical eye-diseases or improve their vision.
Chinese Horoscope sign: Rabbit
The Pearl is associated with purity and purification, innocence and
the feminine side of people. In Chinese culture the pearl
is really powerful and is considered to be "The Tear From
Heaven" or "The Tear of God". A Pearl is given to
young, unmarried Chinese women to help them find their soul mate. It
is a gift that Chinese fathers love to give to their young daughters
when they reach adolescence to guard their purity. It is also common
among wealthy Chinese to drink alcohol with dissolved pearls to cure
all kinds of disease and illness. The Pearl
is also used as strength and energy booster.
Chinese horoscope sign: Dragon
Amethyst is associated with strong intuition, the brain, wealth,
peace, protection and spirituality. Chinese use it for many purposes.
For example it is common to wear amethyst jewelry if you are about to
drink a lot. Amethyst will protect you from drunkenness and will keep
you sober. It is also used in many parts of China, against all kinds
of addictions like smoking, alcohol or drugs. This magical purple gem
stone is also used for spiritual purposes like meditation or
divination. Chinese believe that Amethyst will increase your psychic
powers and your invocation skills. Many Chinese Mediums and
Astrologers (including me) always carry a piece of Amethyst with them
as a divination tool. Last but not least, Amethyst is used in China
as a natural medicine against insomnia and bad dreams.
Chinese horoscope sign: Snake
Opal is associated with guidance, luck, honor, potency, visions,
dreams and mind power. In many western cultures Opal is considered as
a bad stone. Chinese though, believe that Opal will bring tremendous
luck and abundance to those people who's lucky gem stone is Opal. It
is a strange and highly mystical gem stone with strong occult powers.
Chinese legends refer to Opal as "The Invisibility Stone".
It is also used to receive advice from the spirits through dreams.
Chinese put it under their pillows to protect them when they enter
the dream world during sleep. Chinese Mediums use it for spiritual
journeys and to provide guidance. Opals can change their colors from
dark to bright according to the mood of the possessor or to give a
message to the holder.
