Hi devangana
It depends on what you are using them for.
But there are substitutions you can make.
If you could give me an idea of what you will be using them for I could help by posting alternate stones choices.

You can use Citrine or Gold topaz.

Gold stone is a good stone..it's excellent for increasing telepathic powers and any form of magic especially star magic and channelling star guardians...if you use it in a charm bag it attracts successs and fame...so maybe it was given to you by mistake for a reason.
As far as healing properties go it is used for migraines, vision problems, assisting blood flow, detoxifying the system and for recovery from surgery and to cleans the body after you have had to take alot of drugs for medical reasons. So a valuable stone.

If you can't find some of these I can go to the next level and research some of the alternate stones...just let me know.
I hope this helps you out. :)
