David Artsmith  –  Gemstone is a name that can be applied to any of a number of semi precious natural stone materials. These materials form naturally, usually in caves, and are harvested by humans to be used in jewelry, home furnishings, and several architectural applications. A material is termed to be “gemstone” due to its attractiveness, and rarity, and so the stones which attain this label are generally valuable and beautiful.

Gemstone is used to manufacture a wide variety of decorative and functional products for the home. These are generally formal, high end products, which are intended to elevate the decorative style of a space. Common gemstone products include desk clocks, drink coasters, book ends, and paper weights. Gemstone candle holders are also very popular, due to the ability of the crystalline structure to refract the light from the candle into a million tiny translucent caverns.

Gemstone home décor products are most popular in new age and metaphysical spaces. There are many new age metaphysical practicioners who will decorate with gemstone products in order to control the energy of their space. Some people think that gemstones have particular energy properties, which can be used to alter the ambiance of a room, or even to move energy through a persons body in specific ways.

One of the big draws of gemstone home decor is that every piece is slightly different. This is due to the fact that they form naturally within the earth, and are only mined and refined by human hands.

Another popular setting for gemstone decorative products is in a rustic, natural home. The erratic chaos of the crystalline materials will blend in well with the savage nature of such a space.

Alternative settings where you will find gemstone home decor products include romantic bedrooms, executive offices, and anywhere that you can get a good amount of sunlight glinting off of the perfect crystalline surface of the piece.
