This week at H Samuel, we've been drawing inspiration from the mystical elegance of gemstones! A gemstone is a mineral or naturally occurring material that is durable enough to be carved, polished and cut to create enchanting pieces of jewellery.
Exclusive to H Samuel, the young British jewellery brand GAIA use a wide variety of beautiful gemstones, believing that craftsmanship is key to unlocking the full potential and elegance of minerals and metals. After feeling energised by the sheer beauty of the GAIA jewellery, we at H Samuel have chosen to delve deeper into the mystical origins and metaphysical and healing properties behind five of our favourite gemstones.
According to Eskimo legends, Labradorite represents the Northern Lights trapped in the rocks along the Labrador coast in Canada. It is a stone of illumination and initiation, with elegant grey hues and a hint of emerald green. Wear Labradorite to reveal new insights and untapped potential!
One of the most ancient gemstones, Mother of Pearl is believed to bring to its wearer the gentle healing power of the sea. It relieves you from stress, soothes and calms.

Drusy Quartz is a gemstone with a natural surface texture reminiscent of fine sugar crystals that are formed on the surface of quartz minerals. It’s believed to energise and stabilise both body and aura, and promotes creativity, along with giving light and joy.

Called the Heart Stone, Rose Quartz has been used as a love token as early as 600 B.C, because of its romantic pink hues. Rose Quartz is also called Hyaline Quartz, from the Greek hyalos, meaning “glass". It carries a soft energy of compassion and peace, and speaks directly to the Heart Chakra.
