Perhaps the most truly affectionate of them all, this crystal brings peace, acceptance, healing and kind thoughts. Rose quartz can soothe your heart after a broken romance and enable you to trust. It will encourage you to forgive yourself and release any ‘stuck’ behavior patterns, or beliefs that are keeping you from love. Your repressed emotions can be released, and you can move on. Place this stone in your living room or bedroom – large chunks of it look like Turkish delight, and create a soothing vibe. Carry it to empathise and receive understanding and acceptance.
Not truly a stone, but solidified tree-resin, amber brings with it the vibrant life-force of the earth. It will restore your faith, enabling you to be enthusiastic about relationships and able to see the good in others. Amber empowers you to make the best of yourself, and to exude warmth and responsiveness. It has been used through the ages to enhance beauty and sex appeal, and to drive away loneliness. It also boosts fertility and sexual potency, increasing sensual pleasure and encouraging total abandonment to the delights of the senses – this is because of its radiant connection with the natural world. Wear it near your heart, to attract a mate. This stone brings happiness at all levels, but especially in relationships.
This lovely blue stone has so many powers, having ancient associations with royalty, and with the mighty and benevolent goddess Isis.

This stone can empower you to form new ties based on mutual respect, equality and pure communication. It will boost your intuition, so you can tune in to the preferences of your lover, to turn them on and keep them at your side. Swap it with your lover to strengthen bonds and preserve fidelity. Lapis can unite you on all levels, mental, spiritual and emotional. Wear it to feel good and command admiration.
Polished ruby is expensive, but it is possible to get uncut stones. Rich and red, this crystal comes replete with energy and passion. It will help you liven up your social life and bring you plenty of sex. If you long for a passionate love affair that absorbs you completely, with loads of physical expression and extravagant romance, wear ruby and keep it near you when you sleep. Although this is an intense stone, it can also have a calming effect on you if you can be a bit hyper, helping you to focus on what you actually feel, and need to do. Ruby jewellery has long been worn to banish sadness and attract riches of all kinds. This crystal will bring you lust for life and courage when meeting new people or going out on dates.
The brilliant green of emerald represents our planet Earth and all her riches. For eons, wearing an emerald close to your heart has been believed to attract the right lover to you. If you have been through difficult times, emerald enables you to count your blessings, so you can go forwards with optimism and a positive attitude, which is always much more attractive than being down in the dumps. Emerald encourages you to enjoy the simple things in life. It also makes matters go smoothly when you are setting up home with your lover. Its gifts of understanding, tolerance and wisdom come also with material benefits – home comforts, good food, prosperity and great sex. Emerald ensures that lovers will also be friends, patient enough to resolve issues and find security.
