    Default Stone Magic

    I went to the library and got a book called Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Crystal, Gem and Metal Magic by Scott Cunningham. I've started reading through this a bit and found some interesting stuff I just wondered if any of you were familiar with it and had any suggestions to start my own collection of magickal gems.

    I actually spoke with a ruby in my late grandfather's ring. The week he died there was a massive flood in his town and it destroyed his and my Grand Mother's home. Very few possessions were able to be recovered the flood damage was so bad so this is literally the last thing of his that I own. I fully intend to make this ring (which is now my wedding band) into a protective stone.

    I am so sorry for both your losses, and yes the stone would be perfect.

    I've really enjoyed reading this book I spent 6 hours yesterday with my nose in it taking notes down in my BoS for further use. I slept with the ring on last night so more of my personal power could seep into it and this morning the ruby is as clear as ever. there is also a VERY small chip of diamond centered in a a diamond with a cross from the 4 points. I intend to charge the diamond once I've figured out what I want the diamond to do.

    Another strange note... before yesterday when I wore the ring it was sloppy on my hand, my grandfather was probably a ring size bigger than me. Today, it fits like it was fitted to my hand.

    It was meant to be.

    I think so... I've always had a fascination with geology. I used to go to the little "mining" places where you buy a bucket of dirt for 20 bucks and sit and sift through it on a long aqueduct to find a few garnets and a bunch of quarts in some sand. I finished the book today. Over half the book is just an encyclopedia of the different gems, their qualities, their symbolism and magickal properties. Very interesting read.

    Isn't there a place in Western NC where you can mine for stones?

    There is actually. I'm about to take 30 days of leave from Fayetteville and head back to Asheville for the holidays. I plan on doing a good deal of stone searching while I'm there. Not to mention I feel a real connection with the area so I hope to further some of my studies while in the area as well. That esoteric school is very enlightening.

    Last night was my first time working with the stone. I focused on the ruby last night because it is the larger of the 2 stones on the ring. My only goal for last night was to let the stone speak to me and hear it's song. I was successful and actually got a very vivid flash back of my grandfather. I've not yet attempted the diamond chip on it.

    What sources were you using to learn the stones? I'd love to find some more books to read.
