About This Quiz

We often think of our souls as being guarded by something like a spirit animal or a guardian angel, but a soul like yours needs something far more valuable looking out for it. In fact, we are certain that you have a gemstone guarding your soul, more heavily than the gold at Fort Knox is guarded. 

In addition to having unique stories of creation, each precious gem is associated with traits that have been defined by humans. From the royal elegance of a sapphire to the fierce and deeply loving ruby, gemstones can easily guard your soul with their properties. The trick is to learn enough about your soul to pair you with the stone that looks after you in ways you don't even see. 

As we go through this quiz, we'll do our best to figure out what makes you feel filled with passion and the way you approach your every day. We will examine your personality and take a look at the kind of heart you have. Getting to know you is the best way to figure out if you are guarded by an opal or a pearl. 

Put the question to rest for yourself and find out which gemstone guards your soul! Is it the gemstone you think it is?
