When Yellow Sapphire was chosen as our Gem of the Week, our Inventory Manager Michelle told us she has stories to share. The powerful carrier of the yellow ray is one of her favorite gemstones to work with. She likes Yellow Sapphire so much that she often wears two necklaces at a time! Here she describes the way she uses this gem for seasonal support and emotional nourishment.
For me, wearing Yellow Sapphire is like a day at the beach when I'm stuck at home or work—without the crowds, sand, and sunburn. Because the yellow ray is the first color ray that is depleted when we are stressed, Yellow Sapphire provides much-needed energetic nourishment and relaxation during times of high emotional and physical demands.
I began working with Yellow Sapphire five years ago, and it has saved me from seasonal depression. Living up here in the Pacific Northwest, I find that winters can be very difficult. I wear my Yellow Sapphire continuously from October through April, and it has been like the difference between night and day. I find that I am much less tired, depressed, and irritable during those long winter days.
I also reach for my Yellow Sapphire in the summer, when the sun is often too intense for me to be outdoors for very long. I have sensitive skin and I burn easily. Yellow Sapphire is essential during those bright days, when I need nourishment from the sun but wish to avoid sun exposure.
Wearing full necklaces of Yellow Sapphire, Mother of Pearl and Quartz together creates a lovely "gem tonic" at the end of the day. I find wearing the three simultaneously for just 20 minutes after work helps me to relax, rebalance and unwind from my day. It’s like that comfy bathrobe that you just can’t wait to get into!
