Crystal & Gemstone Correspondence

The Tables of Magickal Correspondences

Copyright © 2002 Gray Seal

Precious gems, crystals, certain metals, etc have been used as amulets or Talisman since nearly the beginning of time. The Magical Properties of Stones can be divided into two main categories. The first category is ACTIVE. This is the YANG or the MALE. And of course, equally important is the PASSIVE, the YIN, and the FEMALE. Neither is considered to more powerful than the other, since we need both equally to maintain balance and harmony.


To make use of the stones: Carry them with you, on your person, if possible, preferably beginning when the moon is waxing. You could make a necklace, bracelet, pendant, keychain, etc and attach the stone to it. You could also carry it in your pocket.

Nature totems, including gemstones and crystals, are said to lose their effectiveness if you do not handle them.

Use them, handle them, warm them with your breath. When the time comes that a stone no longer works, pass it on to someone else, or return it to the earth.
