The vibratory power of stones, considered precious or otherwise, was held in high esteem by the ancient Magi, Alchemists, Qabalists, Astrologers, Egyptian Priests, Healers, etc. Down through the ages, they have valued, studied, and taught the virtues of powers attributed to stones. Stones are used in ceremony, ritual and spellwork to enchance ones aura and/or to be used in conjuction with other items; herbs, talismans, etc. to help bring about ones wishes, or to represent certain influences of nature. Please note that some stones may vary in color and appearance.
