Reduce stress in that next meeting, make your confidence soar at that next social gathering, or just bring about a little patience with someone that has been a thorn lately. Once you know that, you just might change your mind and choose a different piece or create something different.

      I use gemstones all the time. They are very powerful in changing a person's aura. I often have dreams of them and they are more exciting than finding money in my dreams. They are a treasure.

      Great hub.
