To make friends with a stone, you need to squeeze it in your palm and warm it with the warmth of your body. The positive emotions and pleasant sensations that a person experiences at this moment indicate that the procedure was successful. Next you need to thoroughly clean the stone. For this we use:

  • salt;
  • water;
  • land;
  • light – solar or lunar.

The choice depends on the element to which the selected mineral belongs.

The cleaned stone must be customized for the future owner. First, it is charged with positive energy. To do this, place it on the palm of your hand and gently squeeze it, tuning it to your own biofield.

As a result, a person receives a talisman that will take on all the negative energy directed at the owner. To do this, you must always keep the stone with you – wear it as a decoration, put it in your pocket, etc. To prevent it from losing its magical properties, its energy must be periodically cleansed, removing accumulated negativity.

How to find your stone

All the positive properties of natural stones are most clearly manifested in relation to a person born under a certain zodiac sign. Each of them, as is known, belongs to 1 of the 4 main elements – Water, Air, Earth or Fire. The primary elements of water include such signs as Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio. These are people with well-developed intuition, a high level of intelligence and vivid imagination.

Stones, the hue of which can change, will help representatives of the primary element of Water realize their ideas. Their color range includes many options – from white to intense purple.

The primary element of Air is the signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. Dreamers and romantics are often born under these signs. They are almost not interested in everyday problems. People of the primary element of Air spend a lot of time improving their personal qualities and self-improvement.

A good help for such a person is an amulet or talisman made of translucent or matte stones. The color can be soft pink, pale blue, gray and blue.

The primal elements of the Earth are Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus. Under these signs, people are generally born who are calm, practical, and self-confident. They strive to bring all their undertakings to their logical conclusion.

A talisman made of matte stone will help such people increase their success in life. It can be green, yellow, brown or brown, black or white.

The primary element of Fire includes such signs as Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. People born under these signs are distinguished by a strong and decisive character. In some cases they can be quick-tempered and even quite aggressive. Crystals from golden to bright red, especially transparent ones, become talismans for them. It is precisely such stones, according to magicians and psychics, that concentrate the power of Fire.


Gemstones are natural minerals that are quite rare. They are distinguished by high strength and unusual beauty. As a rule, these are shiny stones of an interesting shade and shape. The aesthetic appearance and magical properties of minerals are noticeably improved after their jewelry processing. Jewelry made from them retains its beautiful appearance for a long time.

The magical and protective properties of precious stones increase noticeably over the years. Especially if jewelry, amulets and talismans made from them are inherited by blood relatives.

The chemical structure of an inorganic gemstone remains unchanged. Organic ones include agate, pearl or amber. They require additional processing, proper handling, storage under certain conditions, otherwise a change in their chemical composition can lead to deterioration in appearance or even destruction of the structure of the stone.

  5. Emeralds have been used in folk medicine since ancient times. With their help, you can treat heart and inflammatory diseases, burns, psoriasis, and diabetes. Owners of jewelry made from them gain life wisdom, determination and the ability to earn money.
  6. Larvikite. The mineral was first discovered in Norway in the Larvikfjord. It is an igneous rock belonging to the feldspar family. It occurs from dark gray to dark blue. Black specimens are also known. They may have shimmers of steel or blue. According to the Zodiac, larvikite belongs to the water element. This is the stone of people born under the sign of Aquarius. It is their larvikite that especially carefully protects them from the effects of negative energy, stimulates brain activity, the desire to achieve a goal, and spiritual strength. A talisman made from it will help you in your studies and career advancement. Larvikitis is of great importance for patients who have suffered a stroke.
