Ritual to Find the Right Stones, Gems, and Minerals for You


  • Bowl of dirt or sand
  • Tea candle or solar light
  • Magnet

Time: When the moon is in Scorpio, or during a new moon.

Go outside to a private place and sit down and set the bowl of dirt in front of you. Bury the magnet in the dirt. Light the candle and place it in the center of the dirt. Ground and center.

Take a deep breath and close your eyes. In your mind, visualize what you would like to do. Say:
"Spirits of the forest: wood and hill and dales.
Spirits of the seas: sands and waves and gales.
Steward of earth's treasures,
guardian of the vale
please draw to me the stones I need
upon your sacred trail.
As I will, desire fulfilled.
So mote it be."

Sit back and enjoy the sounds, sights, and smells of nature. Snuff out the candle. Keep the magnet in the bowl until you find the right stone, then remove the magnet and scatter the dirt to the winds, thanking the spirits for their service.
