7 Gems to Give This Holiday Season

“What’s the best gem to give someone who has never worked with gems before?”

It's a popular question this time of year. As Gem Advisors, it's our pleasure to help guide people to the therapeutic gems that will benefit them. We also love helping people introduce our gems to their friends and family. 

If you are looking to gift therapeutic gemstones this holiday season, our Holiday Gift Guide is a great place to start gathering ideas. Any of the seven gemstones below will make an especially great introduction to Gemstone Energy Medicine. We’ve chosen them because they offer the most commonly sought-after benefits and are easy to use, making them great “gateway” gems!


1. Sodalight

Resembling our beautiful blue planet as seen from space, Sodalight is a great choice for someone who wants to clear away mental cobwebs and feel brighter, clearer, and more focused. Its purifying energy helps protect its wearer from other people’s negative mental energies, making it especially helpful for staying balanced in stressful environments.

2. Bloodstone

Bloodstone is our go-to gemstone for supporting immune health. By encouraging the immune system to stay alert and responsive, it works as an ally in the body’s own efforts to fend off colds and infections. Its immune-balancing properties also make it a great first gem for anyone who's prone to seasonal or environmental allergies.

3. Poppy Jasper 

Because we could all use a little energy boost! Poppy Jasper enlivens and moves energy. This is the perfect gem for coffee lovers who may be looking to cut down on the caffeine but still need that little bit of help getting through a busy day. Poppy Jasper’s invigorating energy is also great for someone who needs help getting motivated. It provides a gentle energy boost to help you move through chores or get up and exercise.

4. Rhodonite

Rhodonite is our go-to gem when life’s demands leave us feeling emotionally scattered or ungrounded. Through its steady upliftment, Rhodonite gradually transforms your emotional foundation, making it more solid, healthy, and secure. It can be a great gift for someone who’s juggling many demands and would appreciate some soothing emotional support.

5. Mother of Pearl

This luminous gem imparts the feeling of being soothed and nurtured by motherly love, making it a wonderful gift for a friend who would appreciate some emotional comforting. Its calming and uplifting energy is an antidote to stress and anxiety, and who couldn’t use some of that? Mother of Pearl also provides energetic protection from the wayward emotions of others. Did we mention that it's also beautiful?

7. Quartz

We lovingly refer to this gemstone as energy medicine's universal remedy. Used for attracting life force and bringing balance to the body, mind, and emotions, it is one of our most versatile gems. You can place it on an upset stomach, sprain, or broken bone to facilitate healing, or you can simply wear it around your neck to help bring your life into balance. A perfect gem for the first-timer!
