I still remember going into a little tourist shop, many years ago, and buying a few stones that I liked, just because I have always been such a rockhound. I was truly amazed when I read later about the metaphysical properties associated with my stones. They seemed to be helpful in enhancing the very qualities that I wanted for myself! Coincidence?
