Stone meanings and crystal properties to pick the right crystal jewelry
The Ultimate Guide to Stone Meanings + Crystal Properties
There’s no denying we are drawn to beautiful stones. For centuries, civilizations have deciphered crystal meanings and their impacts on both our mental and physical states. From Quartz to Amethyst and Labradorite to Moonstone, all possess specific stone meanings and energies associated to them. The Ancient Egyptians used stones as medicine and the Greeks and Romans carried special crystals into battle with them. Today, many utilize crystals in wellness and healing work.
Crystal properties come from their high vibrational frequencies. Everything on this planet is made of energy – so it’s thought these vibrations interact with the body’s energy field. Every crystal is unique and so too are its stone properties.
But you don’t have to believe in the crystal properties to be affected. Even those who doubt the scientific evidence as well as history have found that wearing beautiful crystals can bring happiness and even trigger a placebo effect.
There are many ways you can integrate crystals into your life – and no one way is “right”. A great way to start is by choosing crystal jewelry to wear that “speak to you.” We love perusing our beautiful collection of Tula stone pendants, bracelets, anklets and earrings each morning to determine what calls to us. Since they are stackable, we have become crystal alchemists, creating beautifully intuitive and meaningful curations.
To get started, here are the stone meanings of some of our favorites:

Labradorite Stone Meanings
Labradorite is pure magic – as mystical as the northern lights they resemble. This iridescent stone is associated with encouraging self-discovery, enhancing intuition and bolstering courage.

It is also believed to reduce anxiety and insomnia while giving your digestive and immune system a boost. Labradorite is thought to stimulate creativity and inspire new ideas while giving strength during times of transition.
