Whilst admired for their beauty semi-precious stones and crystals are often used as tools for healing. Birthstones are a popular choice because these resonate with the natural characteristics of the individual astrological signs. When choosing a birthstone for yourself, or as a gift, is it important that you consider the meaning of the crystal as well as the healing properties and beauty.
How To Choose
Crystals can be bought as a simple decorative stone or set in an exquisite piece of jewellery. If you are choosing a piece of jewellery that features a Leo birthstone consider selecting an item that is easy to wear and compliments the wearer. Some crystal jewellery is highly decorative and elaborate and may therefore only be worn on special occasions.
Always choose the Leo birthstone that most resonates with you, whether it is for personal use or a gift. You will be naturally drawn to a particular crystal because this stone possesses the healing qualities that you most need.
The Birthstone Choice
Each astrological sign has a number of crystals that are associated with it. Crystals hold a vibration that is effective when used for specific types of healing. Some crystals are appropriate for more than one astrological sign. When choosing a Leo birthstone pick the crystal that you think is beautiful and that resonates with you.
