Metaphysical Benefits

Every natural substance has a unique vibration that creates an energy field. Metal is no exception. When you consider it’s a natural substance dug out of the earth, it’s not that far a stretch to realize just how much energy might be pulsating from a simple piece of jewelry.

Each metal has unique properties, though it’s important to remember that most jewelry is made from a combination of metals. Even precious metals in fine jewelry will usually have a touch of other types of metals to make them more durable. When I wire wrap, I work mostly with silver, brass, and copper. Here are some brief descriptions that I have researched about these metals.

Metals

Brass

In spiritual and metaphysical traditions Brass is the metal that brings out natural good and inner truth. Even the phrase ‘getting down to brass tacks’ tells of clearing away the old debris and getting down to the pure and natural truth.

Brass is a projective metal that is also associated with Gold and can be used as a substitute for gold in healing/money attracting rituals. Brass has no planets, but a star that it’s associated with–the Sun. It’s element is Fire and Brass attracts healing, wealth, and protection. When wearing as jewelry any gemstone that attracts wealth such as Citrine or Cinnabar should be wrapped or set in Brass.

Copper

Not a lot of people wear pure copper jewelry, but copper is still found mixed into a lot of jewelry. Copper has been hailed for improving circulation; though you should not take this as medical advice, and should always consult a doctor for treatment, if you have any circulatory problems it wouldn’t hurt to put on a copper arm cuff or bracelet. Wearing copper can help you improve your awareness and expand your consciousness. It’s particularly useful in strengthening bonds between people.

Gold

Gold is the most popular choice for jewelry. Whether an item is gold-plated or 24 carat gold, this metal is considered cream of the crops for a reason. Gold has been known since prehistoric times to strengthen confidence and symbolize wealth. You can actually use your gold to attract more wealth to you simply by wearing it while you envision yourself growing richer.

Gold really opens the crown chakra and is known to help the wearer who is open to wisdom obtain it from universal sources. Gold has long been hailed for its protective properties as well, which is why it’s been commonly used for talismans, amulets and for making protective symbol charms to be worn on the body.

Silver

Silver is closely associated with the moon; if you know anything about the influences of the Moon in astrology, you’ll find it closely related to the influences of silver. One of its key traits is that it increases sensitivity—particularly psychic sensitivity. If you’re trying to hone your psychic abilities, silver is a good choice to wear when you work on them. Medically, silver has been known to enhance the production of hormones and regulate the function of glands.

For thousands of years, people of many cultures have used gemstones and minerals for healing and transformative purposes. As diverse and distant as these groups may be, they often reach the same conclusions on the properties of gems and minerals. Still, gemstone properties are not written in stone, and it is important for you to use your own intuition and inner guidance when working with the energies of the mineral kingdom. More simply, if a stone feels instinctively good upon handling, then it is probably a good choice for you.

To learn more about the powers of stones, speak to others who like stones, check out some books, and above all, listen to yourself. Your own feeling about a stone is more valid than whatever you may read. This list is just a place to begin. These are some common gemstones and minerals I use in my jewelry.
