Sodalite can also be used to help one differentiate between what is really true and what may appear to be true.

Selenite is a wonderful charging stone for all your other stones.

Oooh,what useful posts, am currently researching moonstone and turquoise (not a crystal) so will post my results in due course.

My additions may be somewhat spastic in the explanations. Apologies.

Balances and enhances love on all levels. Especially good for the heart chakra, but also energizes and cleanses the base and sacral chakras. Helps with insecure feelings, emotional blocks, and letting go psychological and mental issues. In my own personal experience with this stone, I've also used it to ease heartbreak.

Ruby: (adding to what has already been said)
Very good stone for amplification of other crystals, particularly in crystal matrices. Also, can draw energy from the area around it and amplify that energy. Powerful stone for any of the lower chakras. An interesting crystal to use for cleansing energy fields such as auras--baptized by fire, in a way. A very reliable stone; in general, it's a very powerful stone, energy-wise.

Amber: (adding to what has already been said)
I've used it for regenerative purposes, in conjunction with Reiki.

Emerald: (adding to what has already been said)
A very good stone for memory. Also, I've used it for grounding. It's also another good stone for the heart chakra.

Aquamarine: (adding to what has already been said)
Subtle protection over auras. Good for opening up or strengthening the throat chakra. I see it as a somewhat sly stone. It's workings, I think, are very subtle. Also, a good stone for protection when traveling over water and for calming the body and mind.

This is a great thread. I would be interested to know which source books people are using?

Two of my favorites are Encyclopedia of Crystal, Gem and Metal Magic by Scott Cunningham and Crystal Energy by Mary Lambert.

I love Ms. Lambert's book because she shows photos of both raw and tumbled stones - and some raw stones do not look much like their tumbled versions at all, so it makes it nice to see both. Cunningham's book is just divine in its extensive explanations, but then, I'm a Cunningham fan.

Most of my information comes from my own experience using ethereal crystals or the information I got on the crystals from my teacher who attuned me.
