Here is a list of some of the properties of stones you may find on my website. I will be updating this information from time to time, but it is impossible to include all the information existing on one stone. For much more detailed information on rocks, crystals and minerals, I would suggest talking to people who are passionate about them - collectors, rockhounds, geologists, natural health therapists... as well as referring to these resources and other similar ones.
