Gem Stone Categories
When determining which gem stones to use it is very important to understand their properties and have a clear plan of how to use them so you aren't just buying random stones. Make sure each and every gem you own is accounted for and holds utility and purpose, otherwise you will wind up wasting time, effort and money on gathering bundles of rocks. In this section we will focus on basic information for now, anything more in-depth can be discussed in the community forums. There are three categories we will group gem stones into for the sake of simplicity: Energy Manipulation, Protection, and Healing. The geometric properties of your gemstone hold significance and we will be making distinctions between rough and smooth gems. Every solid-state mineral, gem, or crystal has specific atomic arrangements known as lattice structures that are characteristic to that particular stone. The arrangements of these atoms hold significant effects on how energy behaves inside them. This principle is the simplest way of explaining why gem stones have such noticeable effects on energy meditations. For more information feel free to ask an advanced Clergy member.
Energy manipulation will be the category that pertains to gems useful in energy work and gems that act as amplifiers. Amplification means that the gemstone helps to focus your energy work, making the energy during meditation much more pungent. Think of it as an energy cleanse that leads to magnification.
Amethyst- Extremely versatile gemstone that acts as a powerful amplifier.
Smooth Rose Quartz- Can be used as an amplifier in energy meditations.
Clear Quartz- Can be useful in energy storage. Gems such as Clear Quartz can be charged up like a battery, but the energy will leak out over time just like any other battery.
Protection, as many of you will find out sooner or later, is an important part of astral affairs. Certain gem stones are very useful in defensive techniques.
Healing, cleansing, and removing negative energies is an extremely useful ability to have and there are many useful gemstones that can help your healing efforts.
Amethyst- SMOOTH amethyst is very useful in healing and cleaning negative energies.
After you get your gem stones the most important thing to do is cleanse and empower them as otherwise you may be working with conflicting and even negative energies from prior handlers or owners, it is also important once they are cleansed to keep them to yourself and not let your friends handle them unless you know your energies would not conflict.
