The Power of Gemstones

The Power of Gemstones
Mothers need all the help they can get--from surviving tantrums, to sometimes long days with younger kids. Moms of older children need a little extra dose of strength and patience as they watch their children navigate the world on their own, encountering the challenges and heartbreaks that make up a whole life experience.
Tough as a Mother Tribe uses gemstones to design beautiful minimalist jewelry. Each piece has a significant meaning, it's not just jewelry. The power gemstones  can help change our mindset, our mood, and the energy we send back out into the world. Here are a few of our favorites.
Labradorite
What if we could live out our motherhoods with clear minds, positive thoughts, and with a deep connection to our powerful intuition? This stone enhances our ability to reconnect with ourselves and our true identity as a mother. 
Traits:
  • Clears worries
  • Enhances intuitive abilities
  • Protects from negativity
  • Promotes strength & perseverance
This is such a unique stone, as every single piece is different and magical.  Labradorite can have flashes of blues or greens, and no two are the same. 
This stone represents motherhood perfectly, as no two mothers or their children are the same, but rather beautiful versions of their own unique selves, each in a significant and powerful way. Our “Good Vibes” necklace brings moms all the powers of the Labradorite. 
Blue Chalcedony
Parenting can be full of anxiety, doubt, and fear. But this stone calms our racing minds, balances our thoughts, and increases communication between ourselves and others to help us find a clear path forward, no matter the circumstance.
  • Calming
  • Reduces fear, anger, and doubt
  • Improves communication
  • Restores balance
This stone will remind you of the ocean. Its peaceful vibe can really help you to remember to stay calm during  tantrums or when the babies are teething. It also helps us as mothers remember that yes, while we answer to mom all day, we are also women first. We deserve to wear and exude the beauty that we all hold within us, perfectly captured by the peace and calming nature of this stone. Check out Chalcedony in our “Cool Mama” necklace.
Clear Quartz 
Oh my, is it hard to wait when you are a worried mama. But this stone promotes patience and perseverance over worry and struggle. The energy you get from this stone will remind you to carry on through trying times, and long and difficult phases.
  • Energy
  • Perseverance
  • Patience
  • Balance
What mother hasn’t spent hours, days, and years worried for the health, happiness, and general wellbeing of her child? From the moment we learn of our pregnancies, the worrying begins--but it doesn’t have to. Clear quartz is the great equalizer, clearing negative energy and returning your anxiety back to neutral. From there, you have the power to choose positivity, allowing you to create the motherhood you want for yourself, your children, and your family. Our “Balanced Mama” necklace clears out the negativity and helps restore your outlook on parenting, and life.
Turquoise
They say it takes a village, and this stone reminds us of the wisdom and friendships necessary to enjoy our motherhoods. True success means not doing it alone and winning, but parenting with our supporters, and having the courage to reach out. We are not alone in parenting, and in life.
  • Balance
  • Wisdom
  • Success
  • Courage 
  • Friendship
You aren’t mothering alone.  A stone rich in history, it’s known to represent friendship and courage, balance and wisdom. Available on our dainty and minimalist turquoise teardrop.
Rainbow Moonstone
From our rainbow babies to seeing a rainbow and being reminded of our grown child who has moved away, this stone is the heart of hope. Our intuition is to hope, and we crave the strength we get from renewed hope daily, which we will remember when we look at this stone.
  • Balance
  • Hope
  • Compassion
  • Strength
  • Opens intuition
Rainbows carry different meanings for each of us, but for many mothers, a rainbow reminds us of a baby we’ve lost along the way, due to miscarriage or other causes. The rainbow moonstone helps us simultaneously carry these babies with us, giving us strength to endure such challenges, but also renews our hope for the future. Through these struggles, we build compassion for those around us, becoming cognizant of the heavy burdens and griefs they carry with them through their days.
