Gemstones And The Archangels
There are seven popular gemstones that correspond with the Divine energies of the Seven Archangels. They have been associated with the archangels for centuries and are the gemstones that were embedded in the sacred Breastplate of Solomon.
If you don't own any jewelry you can obtain inexpensive, raw, unpolished gems in stores or on the Internet. The gem does not have to be flashy in order for you to connect to the divine energies of the angel it is associated with.
Once you have the stone, it is best to wear it someplace on your body, which is why so many of these types of precious gemstones are set in necklaces, bracelets and rings already. This can help you access the help of the Archangel immediately. Think of the gemstones as transmitters that put you into direct contact with these divine creatures. Simply think of your intention or message and rub, hold or finger the gemstone in some way. You will soon get a message in the form of a thought or a coincidence. If you are really fortunate, you might even have a vision of the actual angel.
Sapphire and Michael
This precious stone, which is usually the color of the deep, blue sea, corresponds to the energies of the Archangel Michael. Michael protects you from forces antithetical to love such as violence and lust. The sapphire can help women select an appropriate husband. The striking blue of the stone is supposed to be the color of this archangel's eyes and also the same hue as the lakes and skies that his spirit inhabits.
Yellow Topaz and Jophiel
