Scorpio women are the most mysterious of the twelve signs of the Zodiac. Representing the sign of extremes, Scorpio women can be demanding, demonstrative and highly magnetic all at the same time. Scorpio women are independent and fearless in their pursuits, and drawn to power and position. They should never be taken lightly as they have great strength, intuition, intelligence and depth; and know how to use their assets.
Scorpio women approach fashion with great aplomb. They may enjoy following the trends but aren’t slaves to anything; as they instinctively know what works best for them and will shift from boardroom bad-ass to romantic bohemian depending on the situation. But true to Scorpio’s secretive tendencies, what you see on the outside may be deceiving. Scorpio women are complex and seductive and always looking for an angle.
Luxurious gemstones are the perfect indulgence for stylish Scorpio women; the secret powers that lie within birthstones will resonate with Scorpios hidden and spiritual nature and many of the Scorpio lucky stones are in their best colors, bold black and shades of red. Let’s explore the many magnificent gemstones for Scorpio if we dare intensify their penetrating beauty.
Scorpio Zodiac Stones
Zodiac stones are less known power stones for Scorpio. Divined from the Ancients pre 15th Century, these mystical gemstones will particularly appeal to the esoteric nature of Scorpio women. Zodiac birthstones correspond to each Sign’s astrological legend (Western and Eastern), associated planets and talismans. The ancient Zodiac stones for Scorpio are Aquamarine, Beryl, Obsidian, Hematite, Garnet, Ruby, Jasper, and Amethyst.
Aquamarine is the primary Zodiac stone for Scorpio (and the traditional birthstone for October). Beautiful Aquamarine is the blue variety of Beryl. Aquamarine embodies all things connected to the sea; both exhilarating and calming, it is the supreme stone for Scorpio, a water sign whose emotions run deep. “Harmony” pairs Aquamarine with dark teal Apatite and Chrysocolla:
Beryl is the name of a group of minerals believed to bring lightness and cheer, a welcome counter-point to the serious-minded Scorpio.
Shiny black Obsidian is a grounding stone thought to absorb negative energy, helpful for a sometimes tempestuous Scorpio.“Saturn’s Lair” is a dark yet flattering design, featuring snowflake Obsidian, a patterned variety of the gemstone identified in Vedic astrology (aka Hindu astrology) as a birthstone for Scorpio:
Another Vedic (ancient East-Indian) astrology birthstone for Scorpio is Hematite. Hematite is a grounding stone also known to promote vitality, optimism and self-confidence. These uplifting metaphysical properties will enhance the personal magnetism of a Scorpio. ”Meryl” reflects this dark and light dynamic with small discs of steely gray Hematite, Pyrite, black Onyx and white Riverstone:
The ruling planet of Scorpio is Pluto and Garnet is a gemstone associated with Pluto. Garnet is very important for the Scorpio-born. It is an energizing stone that aids healing by connecting with primordial, regenerating energy. It is a stone of strong feelings that will surely resonate with a sensual, attuned Scorpio woman.“Harvest Moon” is a sleek lariat design accented with Garnet, crystal and pearls:
A counterpart of Garnet is the captivating Ruby. This fiery red Scorpio stone has long been associated with love and faithful commitment much like the fiercely passionate and loyal Scorpio woman.
Mars was the ruling planet of Scorpio before Pluto was discovered and Jasper is the planetary stone for Mars. Jasper is also the birthstone for October in the ancient Tibetan calendar and thus it is considered a birthstone for Scorpio. Jasper brings stability and joy. It is a nurturing stone much like the immensely giving Scorpio woman. “Freya”, “Sandstorm” and “Swallowtail” all contain varieties of Jasper:
Beautiful purple amethyst is the talismanic stone for Scorpio. Talismans are often engraved amulets or other pieces of jewelry believed to exercise a powerful influence. Amethyst is a calming, mood stabilizing gemstone, an excellent choice for a highly emotional Scorpio. We combined Scorpio birthstones, Jasper and Amethyst, in “Alaya”, an alluring boho-style choker featuring exotic beads from Tibet:
Traditional Scorpio Birthstone
Traditional birthstones are society-based birthstones often reflecting Western culture and folklore. Topaz is one of the twelve stones in Aaron’s breastplate mentioned in the Book of Exodus and the traditional birthstone for November. Topaz is available in a number of colors, blue, smoke, and golden yellow, the variety specified as the November birthstone. This yellow stone symbolizes optimism and energy and is believed to strengthen both the physical and spiritual body. “Angelique” is regal design we currently have that features jewel tones paired with smoky Quartz, a semi-precious stone close in coloration to smoky Topaz that is known as a Stone of Power, aptly fitting the driven Scorpio woman:
Modern Scorpio Birthstones
In an effort to standardize birthstones, modern and alternative birthstones were assigned in the early 1900’s by jewelry associations. Although these gemstones have little to do with the Judeo-Christian roots of traditional birthstones, they have been revered in both ancient and western cultures for centuries.
Citrine is the modern birthstone for Scorpio. Known as The Merchant Stone, Citrine would make a fine gift for a Scorpio or anyone as it attracts wealth and is a stone of abundance and manifestation. It also improves mental clarity – an attractive quality for the keen-minded Scorpio who is uninterested in superfluous gray areas. “Georgia” combines Citrine, orange Aventurine, Jasper and Carnelian in a design as uplifting and centering as a sunset:
If you happen to be one of the fortunate chosen few in a Scorpio woman’s inner circle, you have a caring friend in her. Repay her loyalty and kindness with a gift of handcrafted gemstone jewelry. Stylish Scorpio women will make good use of one-of-kind birthstone jewelry; their power stones will reinforce their arsenal of charm, smarts and beguiling beauty.
