best thing I could say is find a store that has stones and see what calls to you. Barring that, perhaps a book? I happen to think it is an individual thing and a lot of stones overlap in purpose. my DD uses tiger eye for introversion AND protection, for instance.  Because only you know what you need(+ if you don't you need practice) I can't help you more.

BTW, metaphysical book stores are good but also jewelry stores for making it, like michael's or johanne's can be good.

This was why books were made. There are crystal encyclopedias, dictionaries, and informative books on Barnes and Noble + Books A Million + Everywhere else. Just look and buy. If you can't buy go to a local library or just go to the bookstore and write what you learn down on a notepad.

Some second hand shops are good for books that are useful (but not in my town :-[ )

FoW do you like rock hunting? It's one of my favorite things to do.

Rock hunting might be a nice activity to try... Though when I see 'normal' rocks just laying around, they all look the same to me. I guess it depends on where you live, too. Where I live, there's mostly granite and limestone

FOW, this is just one of the MANY sites out there. It just happened to be the first one I came across on my bookmarks bar.

 Like the others said (and mostly likely what you'll find out for yourself), is that stone meanings vary depending on what source you're looking at.

Amethyst and clear quartz are good "all purpose" stones. I'm also drawn to tiger's eye and rose quartz, but you might be drawn to something else. It's good to go to a store that sells stones/gems/crystals and just look around. You'll find what you're looking for. :)

Actually, Granite is quite good for protection and warning, If you keep a handful of them in a sock and swing it about menacingly, I guarantee many people will think twice about approaching you.  :-p ;D ;D

Good one, Drac!  :D

I did! I feel so silly now.  ;D

Consists mainly of quartz, feldspar, and mica. So yeah, now I'm gonna go pick up some granite.

yesterday I was reminded that the person helping me (energetically w/ reiki) goes walking in a stream bed and just collects the polished rocks she 'feels'.  You don't have  to pay for the magic!

That's how I've gotten most of mine, I don't get to hunt for rocks often enough. I've learned alot along the way.

My stones called to me, moonstone and amethyst are the stones that resonate with me most :) Hopefully you will find yours :)

Blessed be, Lovelys.

thanks, i do like to rock hunt, but in my area there isnt much. we have found some very large quartz crystals, but i know one of mine is onyx, i think bloodstone, but i havent come in contact to know. i usually feel attached to the stone if i see or feel it. sorry if this sounds weird or mushy, but it feels like the rock loves me and i love it, im devastated because my onyx has vanished, im trying to find it. as for buying or going to libraries, i cant as of yet, as i have no money. ive found a stream but cant find any stones in it, as well as the fact that its tainted buy construction up stream. they polluted what was pure. it was a hot spring that i ?felt? in the area. never saw it but knew it was there. i found it, and saw the heavy machinery, saw the oil in the water, so cant go there. :(

Follower , some times when a crystal or stone has fulfilled it,s part in your life it will move on to another . When another one knows you are in need it will let you find it . Everything has one or many destiny's to fulfill , wait when you need help it will call to you .

Well, as you can obviously get to this site, I suggest you review the stone page here at TCC.
