I can’t tell you how often I’m asked, “What is the best gemstone for…?” You can fill in the blank with most anything. While finding the perfect gem for a particular situation is a good thing, having a go-to stone that matches your inherent true self is also key. It’s almost magical and quite comforting having a gem that really resonates with one’s personality and just feel so ‘right’ when wearing it.
Here are 5 Personality Archetypes and the gems that work well with them.
Aquamarine is an excellent stone for those in the arts or anyone who feels that they are an artist at heart and wants to tap into that. Aquamarine is a calming crystal that promotes a peaceful almost meditative state of being. It enables one to let go of the part of our mind that insists on order and process and simply lets the creativity flow.

Moonstone is known as The Traveler’s Stone. As ancient as the moon itself, Moonstone holds the power of mystery. Its secrets are locked beneath a pearly veil, and with them, our own hidden truths. Moonstone is foremost a talisman of the inward journey, taking one deep into the self to retrieve what is missing, the parts of the soul left behind or forgotten, then brought to light. But it also gives guidance and support when making one’s way through the world with its ever shining mysterious light as a guide.
