The Spiritual Use of Gemstones in the Bible

In the Bible, gemstones are mentioned in a number of contexts, including in descriptions of the adornment of various objects, such as the breastplate of the high priest and the foundations of the New Jerusalem. Gemstones are also mentioned in relation to their symbolic meanings and associations, such as the sardius stone representing the tribe of Judah and the jasper stone representing the throne of God.

In some spiritual traditions, gemstones are believed to have unique energetic properties that can be harnessed for healing and spiritual growth. These beliefs are not based on the teachings of the Bible, but rather on the idea that gemstones and crystals have unique vibrational frequencies that can interact with and influence the human energy field.
