  • It is colorful
  • It has characteristic orange blotches.

Mercury Stones May Also Correspond to Jupiter and Venus

Stone can correspond to several planets, connected by the principles of sympathy and antipathy. Such a gemstone has mixed physical attributes.

Consider, for example, a stone of mixed nature - kyanite.

  • On the one hand, the blue color belongs to Jupiter.
  • But the presence of patterns and inclusions is the color property of Mercury. The principle of antipathy connects Jupiter and Mercury.

Another example is the serpentine. It is a stone of Venus and Mercury. Mercury is associated with Jupiter and Venus by antipathy.

More examples of Mercury stones of diverse nature:

  • Emerald (Mercury and Venus, antipathy allies)
  • Aquamarine (Mercury and Jupiter, connected by antipathy, as well as the Moon, Jupiter’s ally in sympathy)
  • Opal (Mercury and Venus, allies by antipathy, as well as the Moon, ally of Venus by sympathy. The Moon gives a characteristic iridescent brilliance and optical haze)

What is the Magical Property of a Particular Stone?

Knowing the list of ruling planets of a stone, you can get its magical properties.

For example, take emerald. It shares the nature of Mercury and Venus. Therefore search Google for “Mercury in astrology” and “Venus in astrology.” You will know what emerald is accountable for.
