have been valued for many different reasons. Those we know of came down to
us through written records, cultural memories and legends. They have been
used as amulets and talismans for thousands of years. To use the magic of
stones, it is important to gather the stones that speak to you about certain
issues in your life. The process involves keeping a conscious thought in
your mind about a certain issue or concern before you choose a stone. For
some people, the first stone they put their hands on while focusing on the
desired outcome becomes the stone that will represent that issue for them.
Others will need to handle a number of stones before feeling certain that
the stone they are holding is the right one. Some people will stay "by the
book" and use specific stones for specific purposes. Others will gravitate
to and use the stone just because it appeals to them. If all else fails -
use the stone that makes you happiest.
