Taurus Zodiac Stones: Grounded and Balanced

Taurus season has begun!  That means that it’s time to learn about the Taurus zodiac stones!  If you haven’t read the previous blog about zodiac stones and how they differ from birthstones, be sure to check that out.  Now, if you’re ready to jump right into Taurus season with me with full confidence and intent, let’s get right into it!

Sapphire

The most common, original zodiac stone of the Taurus is sapphire.  Sapphire stones are traditionally blue, and pair beautifully with diamonds.  However, they come in many different colors, so if blue isn’t your thing, you have a range of options to choose from!  The sapphire has long been associated with royalty, representing love, romance, and commitment.  In 1981, Prince Charles proposed to the beloved Princess Diana with a blue sapphire engagement ring, solidifying the stone as a pinnacle of romance.  Though Tauruses are frequently known for their ‘rough-and-tough’ sides, they are also lovers of the finer things in life, appreciating all things pleasurable and beautiful.  Sapphires, whether paired with diamonds or standing alone, are brilliant, stunning stones, sure to play into any Taurus’ love of beauty.

While they are absolutely gorgeous, sapphires can also compliment a Taurus’ consistent and grounded nature since they are a stone that can be worn on a regular basis!  You can rely on a sapphire’s practicality and you won’t need to choose a different piece of jewelry each day if you don’t want to, something a Taurus might be able to get on board with.  Whether they are worn on a necklace, a ring, or a pair of earrings, you can count on sapphires to bring out your natural beauty without worrying about their longevity.

Though sapphires are the most common zodiac stone of the Taurus, there are other stones that are also frequently associated with this sign.  The two stones, next to sapphires, that represent and compliment the Taurus the best are Emeralds and Amber.

Emerald

Emeralds are thought to bring peace and prosperity to the wearer, traits that will balance out a Taurus’ strong willed and contentious nature while complimenting their devotion to those they care about and encouraging a healthy, balanced relationship with their passions.  They are also, in many cases, believed to relieve stress.  Since Tauruses are hard workers and can sometimes devote too much time to their work lives or passions, leaving little time for themselves, a stress relieving stone is a great option.  If you want to continue to be able to do your best, Taurus, you need to be sure to care for yourself in the most valuable ways possible!

Amber, another stone known for its calming and stress relieving qualities, is a wonderful stone for the Taurus who wants to draw out their softer side and connect with Mother Nature’s organic beauty.  Its unique honey-yellow color pairs beautifully with earthy tones if you enjoy greens, greys, browns in your wardrobe.  Unlike sapphire and emerald, the vivid color of amber is less intensely bright and more muted, calm, and relaxed.
