Are you looking to redesign your kitchen? If so, perhaps you should consider installing a gemstone countertop. Not only do gemstones have unique healing properties, as countertops, they turn ordinary kitchens into mesmerizing work spaces.
From countertops made with labradorite to quartz, it is clear gemstone countertops are the next hottest trend. Following are a variety of ideas to inspire your next kitchen remodel:
Labradorite is a stone of transformation, and tends to be a useful companion through change because it imparts strength and perseverance. At the same time, it balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies. Labradorite is also said to enhance psychic abilities.
As a gemstone countertop, the mineral adds an element of sparkle, even in the darkest of kitchens. As The Earth Child points out, the radiant stone easily integrates into designs the feature dark wood or contemporary metals.
Amethyst is a popular stone, partly because it is a perfect purple shade and also because it is believed to offer protection from psychic entities and poison.
When amethyst is made into a countertop, it lights up kitchens. As you can see from the photo, it pairs quite well with white decor.
3) Petrified Wood
If you want a kitchen countertop that contains the history of half a million years, choose petrified wood. The composite material is made out of many pieces of wood — not just one slap. Because nature is in charge of it’s creation, petrified wood can look very unique. From stripes to circles, there are a myriad of options to choose from when designing your next countertop.
From a healing perspective, petrified wood is especially useful at helping those who feel “stuck” or are experiencing being frozen in time. It can propel change, create balance, and provide a new foundation from which new goals can be launched.
Quartz is, perhaps, the most versatile of all gemstone counter tops. An extra benefit is that it has many subtle variations of the same style. The speckle and variety of shades in quartz offers an elegant flair to kitchens.
Quartz crystal is composed of silicon dioxide and is mined in numerous places around the world. It has been used as a sacred power object by many cultures, including Native Americans, Druid priests, Tibetan monks and the priests of Christian Europe.
The gem is useful for amplifying or strengthening intentioned energy, and can help you face and let go of fear and anger. Quartz can guide you to become a more loving person, as well as can enhance your abilities to enjoy life and maintain balance. It is especially beneficial to energy healers.
