Gemstone LoreGemstones 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.
