Typically, yellow stones include elements such as lithium, ferric iron, or sulfur. All of them can be divided into several groups, unlike various characteristics. For example, inorganic and conditionally inorganic. Amber belongs to the last group. It does not have the indicated elements, and the tone depends on the petrified resin.
In addition, there is a classification of precious and semiprecious, which is quite arbitrary. The main characteristic that allows attributing a gem to a particular group is its hardness and abundance.
Many of the stones in the ancient world were endowed with various properties and not only familiar physical, but healing and even magical. Belief in this has remained now. If we consider them from the point of view of shade, then the first is an association with wealth, joy, sun and warmth. Therefore, the representatives of this group mainly carry a similar energy to their owners, raising their mood and attracting luck.
Golden gems are not found very often in nature. The most popular of them are topaz and sapphire.
The origin of the name of the mineral “topaz” is still reliably unknown – many scientists associate it with the meaning of the fire element. In some countries in ancient times, for example, in Egypt, topaz was associated with the god of the Sun, so it cost a lot of money. Since that time, it is believed that the gem can fulfill the function of a talisman, protecting energy. In addition, such an instance stimulates mental abilities, most suited to creative natures, politicians and scientists.
Topaz. This is a transparent crystal that has a bright yellow color with a rainbow shine. Most often, only one shade predominates, but there are also specimens with the property of polychrome. In this case, the mineral may be cast in red, brown, or green. Its peculiarity is its fading under the direct rays of the sun, therefore over the years the decoration with it can become “whitish”.
Do not ignore the “treated” properties. The mineral is credited with the ability to calm the nervous system and cope with stress, normalize the digestive tract, respiratory system and metabolic processes. The following treatment is most popular: topaz is dipped in boiled water and left there for a couple of hours, then this water is drunk. The course is designed for 2 weeks.
Sapphire. This is a precious mineral that is most often found in blue. Yellow specimens are most often heterogeneous – somewhere darker, somewhere lighter, while uniformly colored ones are more valued. Therefore, good representatives of the corundum variety are very expensive. This is the hardest stone after diamond, which also has strength – it almost never spoils when dropped.
Sapphire has long been used to give man courage and self-confidence. Active use in meditations and other oriental practices justifies its ability to give the wearer a state of rest. Healing properties positively affect the cardiovascular system and metabolic processes, heal sick eyes.
Tourmaline. Tourmaline is usually raspberry. The yellow representative received a separate name – Dravit. Its rarity explains the great cost. Currently, mining is carried out at only two fields in Kenya. In addition, the mineral is often heterogeneous and has additional inclusions. Its feature is dichroism, which means a change in hue at different angles or when lighting changes.
The healing properties of tourmaline of all colors are in a positive effect on the gastrointestinal tract, liver, spleen and pancreas.
This group is more common than precious yellow gems. The following representatives are most popular among jewelers.
Heliodorus or yellow beryl. The golden hue in this case can be represented by many halftones. Depending on the quality of the gem, jewelers can leave it in its natural form, or they can be subjected to heat treatment, after which the heliodor will become transparent or blue.
This beryl brings confidence to its owners, charm and protects from the blues. It has a calming effect on the nervous system, relieving insomnia and nightmares. Promotes the favorable development of marital relations and career advancement.
Citrine. This is a type of quartz. Citrine is fairly inexpensive, while its hardness is only slightly less than topaz. Its luster is so glassy, and its color is stable. Negative quality is the rarity of pure specimens without extraneous inclusions and cracks. Therefore, it is often grown artificially in the laboratory, which reduces the healing properties to naught. They are concluded in the general strengthening of the body, and especially in the treatment of the organs of the gastrointestinal tract. Wearing jewelry or amulets with it attracts money and luck.
It is not recommended to wear it constantly, as well as to allow prolonged contact with water. In terms of energy, it is most suitable for people who are active and passionate, for lazy and listless people it can worsen the condition.
Garnet. Pomegranates of this color are rare, and do not have high value. It has beneficial effects on the condition of joints and blood pressure, and also helps to cure diseases of the respiratory system. He brings optimism and positive attitude to the owner of pomegranate jewelry.
Zircon. Zircon is a brittle mineral, which also does not tolerate chemical attack. This is a natural diamond substitute with the corresponding brilliance, the cost of which is several times less. It has all kinds of colors, including golden / yellow. Zircon is considered the patron saint of scientists and entrepreneurs. The therapeutic effect on the thyroid gland, as well as the cardiovascular system. But you should be careful with opaque gems, especially bright green, since such zircons often have an increased radioactive background.
Since ancient times, significant magical abilities have been attributed to him, and all thanks to his form to the double pyramid. It is believed that this property gives him great strength, especially in the struggle for truth and justice.
Decorative and ornamental
The main signs that distinguish decorative and ornamental stones from precious stones are the opacity of the structure and the absence of glass shine. There are quite a lot of yellow ones in nature – tiger and cat’s eyes, carnelian, jasper. The most affordable, as well as famous, is amber.
In general, amber is not a rare stone and small in price, however, its use as a healing agent is very common. This is explained by the constituent trace elements: zinc, magnesium, calcium, iron, and, especially, iodine. Therefore, its main application is the treatment of thyroid diseases. Amber is considered a powerful amulet, protecting from troubles. The owner of the stone becomes more cheerful and cheerful.
Amber. Amber is a unique gem, which since ancient times has been called the “stone of the sun.” In fact, it is a petrified piece of resin of coniferous trees, whose age can reach 140 million years. This indicates its completely organic origin. Its largest deposits are located on the Baltic coast and in Russia.
Cornelian. This mineral is a variety of chalcedony and appeared due to the action of volcanoes. It is distinguished by an uneven color, which looks like circles and stripes. For mankind, the carnelian has been known for at least 800 thousand years. Then it was used mainly as ornamental material for tools, and later began to be used for jewelry and cult objects. Now it is mainly used for decoration of icons, temples and furniture.
Not all carnelian possesses healing properties, but only that contains radium. The presence of this element contributes to the rapid healing of wounds and injuries, the cure of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, heart and thyroid gland, strengthening immunity, etc.
