I chose lapis lazuli because I love the pyrite inclusions that make it look like the night sky and I love dark stones. I have a black agate pendant too that has tiny silver inclusions in the stone and that also looks like the night sky - beautiful.

I'm quite partial to moonstone and amber too; it was very difficult to choose .

Mine isn't on


I would choose Obsidian because it's dark and glassy and masculine and has such a rich scrying tradition, that even the tiniest piece of Obsidian- to me - holds magic!

I'm just an irrelevant *other*

Lapis lazuli as well as green moss agate (not on the list). I don't have any rational reasons why I love them, other than they seem to be calming and comforting if I need physical, mental or emotional TLC.

Pyrite is also missing from the list, it's another one I love.

For me, I've always been partial to amethyst I don't know why maybe because I find it really calming when I hold it. I also love moonstone being a cancer, I'm just drawn to it. I think I will take a nap with it and see what happens.

I love malachite because it's a beautiful dark green, and I love the waves. It's so flowing and curvy, not straight-line crystal like other stones. My second, more intellectual, favorite is one of the most straight line stones there is--selenite. It's pure and white, but with more softness, warmth, and mystery than quartz.

I have a small malachite sphere and a medium selenite sphere. Never tried scrying with either, but I think they would work well. When I get up the nerve!

It's a tie between amethyst and rose quartz but I'd go for rose quartz. It's such a pleasant energy stone, and whenever I'm down, I hold my rose quartz and feel better. And its a super gentile non intrusive stone perfect for all occasions.

If I can only pick one....

clear quartz crystal, especially clusters

I keep them around my bedroom. I sometimes place them on top of decks. If you have a quartz CLUSTER, they don't need to be re energized like just individual pieces of quartz.

I am currently looking for a jet necklace or ring. If anyone knows of a good place to find one, please share. Obsidian and onyx seem easier to find at a decent price. Most of the jet I've seen is quite expensive.
