If you want to buy your spouse a necklace, you have a wide variety of stones to choose from. There are some natural stones available that not only are beautiful but also have healing properties. Below are three of these stones so you can determine what would be best for your spouse.

Agate Natural Stone

The agate natural stone is thought to have healing properties as well as the ability to bring a person self-confidence, courage, and emotional strength. The stone is translucent and multicolored in colors of pink, red, blue, brown, and tan.

When you shop for the agate natural stone, things may get confusing. This is because different manufacturers use different trade names for the stone. For example, you will find agate called sardonyx, carnelian, and banded agate. You will also see it referred to as plain quartz or chalcedony quartz.

Agate is a hard stone, but it can chip and crack easily. For this reason, make sure it is kept in a jewelry box or other protective place when your spouse is not wearing it. To clean the agate natural stone, wipe it down with a soft cloth.

Abalone Shell

Abalone shell comes from the sea and is known to cause the person wearing it to have a calm demeanor and helps them become a more creative person. You can find abalone shell stones in a wide variety of colors, such as black, green, red, pink, and blue. The abalone shell is generally flat and oval or round in shape. You will find this natural stone used in necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings, and the jewelry is generally sterling silver.

Abalone is a soft material, so it needs to be protected from any hard blows or scratches. Simply wipe the stone with warm water and a soft cloth when it needs to be cleaned. Do not store it in direct sun, as the sun will fade the stone.

Amethyst Natural Stone

The amethyst natural stone is thought to relieve stress, bring wealth to the person wearing the jewelry, and make the person feel emotionally stronger. The color of this stone is purple, and the stone is shaped like a hexagon. It is transparent to translucent. The stone can be used in a variety of jewelry, such as necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets.

The amethyst stone can be cleaned with any commercial jewelry cleaner, or you can use plain water and soap with a soft brush. Keep the jewelry out of direct sunlight, as this can cause the stone to fade over time.
