Throughout history, every culture has assigned meanings to different gemstones; and of course it's up to you whether or not you choose to "believe" in those traditional meanings of gemstones and crystals. But certainly, they are beautiful no matter what, and if assigning a meaning or use gives it that little bit of extra significance or pleasure in using or wearing it, then why not?
The things that people want to bring into their lives tend to be love, money, health and peace, with love being the number one.
