Libra men and women are appreciative and intellectual folk, and astrologers of old have identified birthstones for Libra to help them control their highly interpersonal nature. These Libra birthstones include lapis lazuli and agate, which are the gemstones used in this Libra charm bracelet.
Lapis lazuli Meaning
Lapis lazuli was the gemstone worn by royalties of antiquity, from the pharaohs of Egypt to the monarchs of Babylonia. Lapis lazuli was even mentioned in the age-old epic of Gilgamesh, having been the amulet of the legendary king and hero. Much of lapis lazuli’s popularity is thanks to the gemstone’s color. Blue is the color of royalty, hence the term “blue-blooded,” meaning “of royal blood.” Lapis lazuli, with its rich blue color, represents, not only royalty, but all the qualities associated with the finest and most distinguished personalities in society, including excellence, purity and truth.
Lapis lazuli is a traditional birthstone for Libra. Being a stone of purity, lapis lazuli is believed to chase out fear, jealousy and other negative emotions, to which Libra people are susceptible, being always capable of seeing the other side of the scale. In this way a lapis lazuli bracelet makes quite a suitable charm for Libra men and women.
The lapis lazuli beads in this Libra bracelet are genuine, yet probably to enhance the color of the stones, the beads went through dyeing. An attempt was made to reverse the process by soaking the lapis lazuli beads in acetone for days, and this left a matte, less intense color on the stones.
Green Agate Meaning
Agate is a very popular stone of protection, especially from the 15th to 19th century, not least because the gemstone is believed to defend its wearer against the Evil Eye, a malevolent being thought to bring various misfortunes. Beside the stone’s power against the Evil Eye, agate is also attributed with a metaphysical property that enhances prudence, making its wearer temperate, restrained and cautious. This latter quality likewise protects a person from misfortune, as it minimizes the risk of accidents and mishaps. In this way agate is consistently described as a stone of prudence, temperance and protection.
Green agate, in particular, was a highly prized gemstone in antiquity. Women in Syria drank water poured over green agate to avoid sterility. Hence, in addition to being a stone of protection, green agate was regarded as a stone of fertility, of life.
Agate is the talismanic Libra birthstone, or the gemstone used as Libra talisman. An intellectual bunch, Libra men and women are liable to be exploratory and adventurous. Agate is believed to provide Libra people excellent protection, what with the gemstone’s ability to enhance circumspection and carefulness.
