Stones and Gems


Stone and Gem Magick

Since the first time man struck two stones together causing sparks to create fire (a magickal act to primitive man), stones have been viewed as possessing magickal powers and influences. In times of old stones were carried as talismans when traveling or going on journeys; they were believed to hold a connective source of power back to the homeland. This tradition eventually evolved into the wearing of amulets and rings decorated with stones and gems.

Stones have a long association with witchcraft being used by witches for many magickal purposes. Stones, gems and crystals contain their own unique powers and energies that can be used to influence differing occult functions. Many contain healing properties; some are used for protection and to ward off evil, while others are used for divination and spiritual communication.
