I want to get some stones which can aid me in school to concentrate, do well in my exams and also helps in friendships. I have seen some similar threads on this too. I reallly wants to find some stones which could suit my needs. I have problem in memorising and concentrating in my work though my results are good , I seem to be lazy in my works nowadays. I usually to panic and depressions especially in exam period. Friendship is a big problem for me, everyone in class hates me, no one talks to me or a willing to sit next to me during class, it seems that i'm down with diseases or a disgusting person that everyone avoid me. I'm a loner in school and i'm getting sick of it. any stones that could help me?

Stones that have calming and grounding properties would probably be useful to you.

That means any of the agates, and blue lace agate comes to mind. It cools and clams, helps expression (if you have a hard time with public speaking or making yourself clearly understood to others), and eases mental stress.

Here's a pic:

Calcite stimulates the memory.

Hematite is a very good grounding stone - useful at the end of a long stressful day.

Those are just a few.

Hello wisteria,

I'm sorry to hear you are so down & feel lethargic. I'm sure you are not a horrid person who smells: but sometimes, when we are unhappy, other people avoid us, because they fear this unhappiness.

As for stones, my all-time favourite to bring vitality, creativity, concentration, happiness & good communications is citrine. It has both soothing & energising properties & helps you see things more clearly. I wear a citrine pendant when I need to work & be creative, or when I feel lethargic or depressed. It really gives you a lift!

However, stones alone will not lift you if you are really depressed. I would consider seeking medical help (from a natural, Chinese or Western doctor).

Citrine is the stone that jumped out at me as well. I love it for concentration and feeling less lethargic.

For feeling calmer, and better able to deal with people, I've found amethyst and lapis to be very helpful.

I've used garnet pretty successfully on days when I'm so tired I feel like I need a constant caffine fix.

Jade as worked great for me to aid in studying and staying calm around deadlines and exams.

Overall, though, citrine works wonderfully. It's one of my favorite stones. I highly reccomend it.

When I studied, a turquoise necklace;stones all around,helped me.Amber is good for cocentration too,but Ive never tried it.
You might start to feel a depression now.I could be wrong,but it sound like it.I have experienced it myself,and in that case,you should visit a doctor too.Im sorry if I sound like a busy-body,but depression is so usual now,with all the stress around.If you find you cant consentrate,or your grades drop,etc.,please be not afraid to seek medical help as well.

GP = General Practitioner. Your family doctor.

Snowflake Obsidian. I find it works for things like this. And jade is good too.

I know that going to a doctor is probably rather daunting, I've had depression for the past two years and I have only told one person about it, and certainly not my parents, but yeah. Maybe you should read up and find out some ways to get over it.
Eat lots of chocolate. That's all I can say. And talk about it with someone.

Feel better soon. Maybe you should try and let the people around you who don't appreciate you see the best in you, try expressing yourself more as the person you really are.

@wisteria:
I can already second what the others already recommended to you.

What about finding friends outside school? Do you also have trouble with finding them? Try to find ppl who share your interests. Sometimes it takes a bit to find common souls.

Thanks to all. Things seem to get worsen about my friendship with my classmates but I'm getting better and better of handling it in terms of being more mental and emotionally prepared.

I am taking this from a more Hermetic angle.

It seems to me from what I hear you say is that you are feeling ungrounded, restricted, and as if you have no discipline or freedom. I don't know to what extent it is easy to find an astrologer in Singapore, but if you can't find one, it is probably worth having a chart done as a first step. A good astrologer might be able to help counsel you in how to better direct the energy of Saturn. But if you were truly lazy you would not be asking us for help so there is a good side to this :-)

Now on to stones that might help. As you are in Asia, my herbal knowledge probably won't be of use to you.

In general, I would approach a problem like this with a combination of two types of stones. Solar stones will give you energy, a sense of well being, and some strength to help change your environment. Saturnian stones will hopefully help you put the Saturnian influence into its proper place (rather than feeling lazy and like you can't get anything done, maybe it will help provide the discipline to get things done.

For solar stones, it depends on what your budget is. Citrine, sphene, yellow (or Imperial) topaz, sunstone, and yellow zircon are the obvious choices (choose one). It need not be great quality. But it should ideally be yellow :-) As for saturnian stones, onyx and brown jasper come to mind.

Black Tourmaline is good! I use it when in a similar way to what you described and it grounds me; also wards off negativity.
