    My favorite right now is the Red Tigers eye, also a stone of protection but it also enhances WILL POWER! A good stone to add to your stone pouch that you carry every day if you have an addiction to anything or if you regularly allow others to walk all over you this stone might give you the confidence you need to speak up for your self.
