Personality traits of Pisces
Pisces is a collection of all the strengths and weaknesses of the twelve signs of the zodiac. The Pisces personality is complex and diverse.
Pisces is very romantic with a head full of fantasy. With the impact of knowledge and sensuality, they can often become an unparalleled artist. Pisces is a very sensual sign. Love is an essential thing in life for them, and sometimes they indulge in their dreams which lead to detachment from reality.
Pisces are gentle, kind, understanding, sincere, helpful, soft, compassionate, with the spirit of dedication.
At the same time Pisces are also very sensitive and fragile. Once hurt or frustrated, they tend to lose self-confidence in themselves and then escape from reality.
Pisces birthstones: aquamarine, amethyst, ruby, jade, sapphire, bloodstone, rock crystal.
Aquamarine is a dichroic gem, meaning that it can have two different colors–blue or clear—depending on the angle. It’s a hard and durable stone with a radiant glassy shine.
Aquamarines have a rich history that touches many cultures. It comes from the Latin aqua marina, meaning seawater. Ancient Greek and Roman sailors wore aquamarine amulets at sea. This birthstone is said to have soothing, refreshing properties and is used as an all-purpose healing stone.
Aquamarine symbolizes truth, joy and eternal youth. As an amulet, it is thought to protect its wearer and promote courage and verbal self-expression.
Viewed from different angles, natural amethysts show a beautiful purple tone with a little blue or red, due to such minerals as iron and manganese.
Amethysts symbolize tranquility and safety and are able to bring inspiration and wisdom to the wearer. Another implication of the stone is love, a very helpful gem to increase charm and attractiveness and thus promote relationships. In summary, we can think of amethysts as a stone of mystery, romance and elegance.
Ruby is one of the five internationally recognized precious stones (diamonds, rubis, sapphires, emeralds and opals).
The durability of ruby is mainly due to its excellent hardness and high temperature resistance. Ruby has a Mohs hardness of 9, second only to diamonds, and is the second hardest substance in nature.
The hot red color of ruby makes people always associate it with passion and love, known as the stone of love, symbolizing the passion, the beauty, eternity and steadfastness of love. At European royal weddings, rubies are still seen as a witness to marriage.
Jade is an ornamental mineral known for its beautiful green hue. It has been used for centuries in China, as it is thought to bring good fortune.
Although jade is used in a lot of jewelry, it is more commonly used in cultural and spiritual art pieces. Jade is approximately worth over $3000.00 USD per ounce, making it far more valuable than gold.
It has been long believed that jade provides its wearer with enhanced clarity, wisdom, and intuition. For this reason, jade pendants have long been worn as protective talismans.
A sapphire is made of corundum, which is the hardest natural substance after diamonds. It has a value of 9 on the Mohs hardness scale, with a vitreous and or glassy luster, and is transparent to translucent and has a strong pleochroism.
This means that the stone presents different colors when seen at different angles. This makes cutting and polishing a sapphire especially challenging.
The sapphire is a stone of wisdom. The blue sapphire symbolizes love and purity. It’s no wonder that one of the most famous sapphire engagement rings was given to Lady Diana Spencer by Prince Charles, then passed down to their daughter-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge.
The stone has a cool dark green color that is splattered with bright red markings. These “drops of blood” are caused by iron oxide or red jasper inclusions in the stone.
Bloodstone occurs in a trigonal crystal shape. It has a glassy or waxy luster. With a Mohs hardness rating of 6.5 to 7, this stone is fairly scratch resistant.
The bloodstone has always been steeped in mythology. Christ’s stone, the warrior stone, the martyr stone–bloodstone’s many nicknames point to its powerful symbolism. Bloodstone signifies sacrifice, strength, justice and fearlessness.
Some healers say that it promotes healthy circulation and a robust immune system.
Colorless and transparent quartz were called “Krystallos” by the Greeks, which means “ice”. Rock crystal belongs to the quartz family in mineralogy and is a kind of rare gemstones. Main component is silicon dioxide and the chemical formula is SiO2.
Rock crystal is generally colorless, gray or milky white; but when it contains trace elements like Al, Fe, it changes into multiple different colors like pink, purple, yellow, brown and so on.
