When you are shopping for jewelry, it is expected that you might overlook a gray color. This is because it is often seen as drab and not very eye-catching, however, this type of gemstone comes with many spiritual properties.
However, one of the great things about this type of gemstone is the fact that it can blend in with most types of outfits and is one of the classier colors.
If you want to exude radiant and sophisticated energy, then we would certainly suggest you consider the color gray.
So where can you get a gray stone? What properties does this type of stone have to help you gain confidence or amplify some of your better qualities?
Well, there are plenty of options that you can choose from, here are our favorite 18 gray stones below.
1. Gray Agate
This stone is one of the softest and smoothest that we have ever tried. It comes in layers of grey that work to form a warped effect that will complement any muted style of clothing, no matter what the color or the occasion.
This kind of stone will be very easy to clean and because of the texture is not susceptible to a lot of dirt or grime. This is great for fashioning into a pendant or a pair of earrings. We would certainly recommend this for your evening wear.
2. Gray Chalcedony
This stone is great if you want something that you can wear day in and day out without it fracturing. One of the problems of having larger stones is that they are more susceptible to breaking.
This is great for pairing with a silver bracelet, as it will blend well with the pale gray stone. This is a very durable material, coming in an opaque design that will not draw too much attention to itself in the way that a lot of other jewelry does.
3. Gray Diamonds
When you think of diamonds, then you might be thinking about the clear kind that twinkles in the light, however, there are such things as gray diamonds.
This type of diamond comes in a selection of different shades of gray from charcoal to slate gray.
Just because this type of diamond might be darker in tone, that does not mean that it does not suit all types of skin tones and outfit.
If you are wearing burgundy or turquoise, then we would certainly recommend a large gray diamond as a centerpiece.
4. Gray Fluorite
This is a stone that has a reputation for coming in vivid coloring, even if it is gray. This type of stone comes in a wide range of colors, so you should be able to find something that will suit your style of clothing.

This gem is also said to give off calming vibes, so why not get a big lump of it as the centerpiece of your living room or to give off calming vibes as people enter through the hallway?
5. Gray Hematite
This next stone has a metallic style coloring that will go great with a more industrial style outfit (that is, leather and denim).
This stone has been said to absorb a lot of negative energy, so if you are feeling down on yourself or are working in a negative environment, then get this to draw in more positivity.
The one downside of this stone is the fact that it can break quite easily. This means that you might only want to reserve this stone for special occasions. We would recommend this type of stone for use as earrings.

This is a slightly duller color than a lot of other gray gemstones, which means that it will blend in much easier with muted colors. You can get these stones in a plain color, but you can also get one with streaks of hematite inside (see also ‘The Powers And Healing Properties Of Hematite‘).

This type of stone comes in all different colors, however, if you want a moonstone to mimic its namesake, then you’ll get it in gray color.
