Benefits of Gemstones - PositiveMed
There are certain gem stones and rocks used in Wiccan rituals and Wiccan jewelry for their spiritual energy or symbolic meaning (which are pretty much the same thing). Gem stones are valued by Witches for their healing properties, and their ability to hold and channel energies. It has been scientifically proven that different stones have different vibrations but of course witches always knew this.
What is a wishing rock? It's a rock with a single perfectly unbroken stripe all the way around the circumference of the rock. For a rock to qualify as a true wishing rock, there can be no splits, no outrunners, no faint second lines on the rock. Most of us have seen striped rocks, but to find one with just a single perfect line is not easy. Popular lore holds that if you keep a wishing rock in your pocket (or nearby) and make wishes on it, it will help your wishes come true.
