Gemstone Encyclopedia

Welcome to the encyclopedia of gemstones. You can view detailed information for each gemstone, including associations with elements, deities, Sabbats and more, different names for the stone, a description of its physical characteristics, a general overview of it and lengthy descriptions of its magical and medicinal properties as well as any lore and legend surrounding it.

To view this information, simply click on a gemstone name which has a picture below. Any names without pictures are works in progress, and you can check back soon to view more information on those gemstones.


The healing powers of crystals can help with myriad health problems, but they in no way should replace the care of a qualified professional. Always consult your doctor for any medical problems you may have, and use your gemstones to support, not replace, the treatment recommended by your doctor.
