Healing Crystals & Gemstones: A Guide

April 2020

Feel Good Jewelry Has Never Felt Better

It sure is wild out there, isn't it? As we, along with everyone else, wake up each morning not knowing what sort of world awaits, we're finding that beauty is our refuge. It lifts our spirits, reminds us that there is more to life than COVID-19, and it's simply the best distraction. Wearing, giving, and surrounding ourselves with the gemstones and crystals that we love the most has become our antidote for the stress, anxiety, and havoc of the news cycle. 


While just looking at our favorite gems has always filled us with joy, many have believed for centuries that these stones can do more for us than just sit there and look pretty. From scientists and scholars to mystics and shamans, people have sought out crystals as energetic tools for their proven ability to receive, store, and transmit vibrational frequencies. With that comes the idea that each type of stone has unique super powers all its own. Here we share the common attributes of the crystals and gems found throughout the Irene Neuwirth Jewelry collection. Whether you're wishing for healing and protection or just good vibes, there's something for everybody.
