The 12 Foundation Stones in New Jerusalem – Crystals and the Bible

I have done a little research into the meaning of different gemstones. as a Christian I do not believe in Chakra's etc, even though i do love the colourful gemstones used within this belief system. i wanted to find out about a biblical perspective. I found some great articles online that have helped me provide this information. 

The following is from Crystals Thier Meanings http://crystalstheirmeanings.com/the-12-foundation-stones-in-new-jerusalem-crystals-and-the-bible

Revelation 21: 18-21

In Revelation chapter 21, God shows John the new Jerusalem. After describing the measurements of the holy city, John tells us about the precious stones garnishing the foundation of the wall.

18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. (KJV)

Jasper

As stated before, John may have been speaking of Diamond when he said Jasper. He could have also been speaking of a Jasper so pure, it was crystal clear, so we will take a closer look at Jasper and Diamond.

Jasper is mostly known for its ability to bring comfort and security. It makes sense that God would use Jasper in the very first foundation, He is the ultimate comforter, and we can feel secure in the fact that one day we will live for eternity in this glorious place he prepared for us. Jasper can also provide perseverance and determination to get through any difficult task.

Diamonds

Diamonds are a symbol of purity

In the New Jerusalem, sin will be completely non-existent, and we will all be completely pure. Diamond is excellent for bringing love and clarity to our relationships on earth. This stone is a powerful healer of emotional pain, and can also help to bring you more spiritual enlightenment. Diamonds have also been effectively used to treat dizziness, vertigo and many types of allergies.

Sapphire

.

King Solomon and Abraham both wore talismans of Sapphire, and some say that the laws given to Moses were engraved on tablets of Sapphire. This stone is sometimes called the “stone of wisdom” and is said to bring insight, protection and wisdom. It has been worn for thousands of years by many religious people to help keep them on their spiritual path. They also wore Sapphires as symbols of celestial hope and faith and to bring good fortune. For physical healing, these stones can be used to heal insomnia, eye infections, depression, fever, and headaches. Also, Sapphire is excellent for improving your communication skills.

Chalcedony

.

Chalcedony is a nurturing crystal that absorbs negative energy and dissipates it. Wearing it helps instill feelings of benevolence and generosity. Our God is a benevolent God, and He wants us to treat others with the generosity He treats us with. If you sometimes feel like you are having a difficult time communicating with God, holding Chalcedony will help you to open up more and freely communicate with Him. For those who speak before they think and tend to hurt others, this stone can be worn to help hold back some of those words that shouldn’t be said. For physical healing, Chalcedony can be used to alleviate throat inflammations, glaucoma and depression.

Emerald

.

The Emerald is a symbol of rebirth, which makes it a perfect stone to be in a foundation in the new Jerusalem. When you give your life to Yeshua and decide to follow Him, it is said that you have been reborn. You are no longer the same sinful person. When you wear this stone, you may notice your love and emotions beginning to resonate with God’s divine love. He wants us to love others like He loves us. Feeling this love and compassion for all other living things is essential for being the people that we should be. Wearing an emerald will also help bring prosperity and good health to your life.

Sardonyx

.

Sardonyx is a highly protective stone and is known for bringing more self control. If you need more mental discipline and motivation, this is the stone for you. Sardonyx is actually a mix of Carnelian and Onyx, therefore it contains the healing properties of both. In ancient Egypt, people wore Sardonyx to protect them from evil and bring courage. For physical healing, this stone has been used to alleviate allergy symptoms and back pain. We should all be honest people with strong moral principles, which can be hard when we live in the world that we do. Carry or wear Sardonyx to help keep you on track and maintain your integrity.

Sardius

.

The stone that we call Carnelian today was called Sardius in the KJV of the Bible. Carnelian was worn by ancient warriors for courage and power. This is also an excellent stone for overcoming your fear of speaking in front of a crowd. Carnelian is also a great stone for enhancing your creativity and motivation. Physically, this stone has been used to treat arthritis, depression, back problems and kidney issues. Carnelian, being a symbol of passion and love, is a perfect stone to be used in the foundation in new Jerusalem.

Chrysolite

.

Since there is not a gemstone actually called Chrysolite, many scholars believe John was speaking of the stone Peridot. It is best known for increasing self-esteem. Using Peridot will also help you to let go of guilt you may feel from past mistakes. Remember that Yeshua has forgiven you, and you should forgive yourself. Peridot will also help you to appreciate this beautiful planet that God made for us. For physical healing, this stone is said to heal ulcers and help with heart and lung problems. If you would like to gain more confidence and bring more joy in your life, Peridot is the stone for you.

Beryl

.

Beryl actually represents a group of stones including aquamarine, emerald, heliodor andmorganite. I am not sure which one of these stones John was speaking of, but I believe it was aquamarine. The beryl of choice during that time was aquamarine, so he could have been speaking of that particular stone. Seamen carried aquamarine in ancient times to protect them from drowning and promote safe travel. This stone is said to enhance spiritual communication, which would make it a great stone for the foundation.

Aquamarine

.

Aquamarine is also an excellent stone for helping you overcome being judgmental. We should look at all people with love and understanding, and get to know them, instead of passing judgement at first sight. Everyone sins, and we should not be judging others for their sins before looking into ourselves. Aquamarine is great for helping you realize your inner-most truths. For physical healing, this stone has been used for respiratory illnesses, skin conditions and eye problems.

Topaz

.

Topaz is a stone of truth and forgiveness. The Lord said that vengeance is His, and if we have trouble remembering that, Topaz is the perfect stone to wear to promote forgiveness instead of vengeance. This stone can be found in many different colors including blue, golden, champagne, red, pink, yellow, brown, green and clear. Topaz is said to be a stone of good fortune, and diplomats used to wear them, because they said it helped them discover their opponents secret plans and make an informed decision. Topaz has been known to bring wisdom and protect the wearer from lies. Physically, this stone can help with insomnia, high blood pressure and asthma.

Chrysoprasus

.

Today we call this stone Chrysoprase and is commonly found in apple green. Back in the time that Revelation was written, the golden and yellowish-green stones were more common. This stone is said to bring love and prosperity. You should use Chrysoprase if you wish to better accept yourself and others. I believe this stone is included in the foundation, because Chrysoprase is said to help us understand the Divine Truth. We may already know the truth of Yeshua, but we could definitely use some help in finding all the truths that we should know. For physical healing, this stone can help with high blood pressure, eye problems, depression, and insomnia.

Jacinth

.

Jacinth can be blue, reddish-orange or violet, and today we call it zircon. The Jacinth referred to in Revelation was most likely a blue-violet stone, since the word Jacinth is derived from the Latin word, hyacinthus. In the 11th century, this stone was used to protect the wearer from injury. During the Middle Ages, people believed these stones brought wealth, honor and wisdom. It has been said that Jacinth fosters spirituality and aids you during prayer. Violet Jacinth is best known for its power to bring money, while blue Jacinth is an emotional healer. It is said to heal many physical ailments including asthma, allergies, respiratory problems and liver issues.

Amethyst

.

Known to the ancients as the “gem of fire”, Amethyst is the most powerful spiritual healer. Many use this crystal to tap into higher levels of consciousness. Amethyst is also a very protective stone and will protect the wearer from evil and physical harm. This stone is also known for its emotional healing powers and ability to boost creativity. Besides being a powerful spiritual healer, I believe Amethyst was mentioned for use in the foundation, because it’s a stone of wisdom that can bring greater understanding. It is excellent to use during prayer to still your thoughts to better receive guidance from God. Amethyst is said to be an excellent immune system booster, and using it can help heal arthritis, skin conditions, headaches, digestive issues, insomnia, and depression.

What about the Pearl Gates?

.

Also mentioned in Revelation are 12 massive gates, with each being made of a single pearl. Imagine the size of the mollusks that created those! Pearls are said to nurture your integrity, faith, purity and loyalty. They are also said to attract prosperity and wealth. I believe the gates are made from pearl mainly because pearls symbolize purity, and we are all made pure by Yeshua. All we have to do is talk to Him, believe in Him, commit to Him, turn from our sins, and we are given eternal life.
