There's a crystal shop at my local shopping mall. I was looking for a birthday present for my sister, and got her a necklace out of fuchsite and ruby. The lady then put in two paper cards describing the stone. I thought it was cool geological info, so just accepted it. When I got home I read the papers:

Fuchsite
Fuchsite accesses knowledge with great practical value. May help to understand your interaction with other people and relates to basic concerns about life. It facilitates the clear expression of thoughts, and feelings. Fuchsite amplifies the energy of crystals and facilitates their transfer. Helps to control blood sugar, and regulates the kidneys.

Quote
Ruby
It was believed that by wearing a Ruby one would enjoy good health, affluence, wisdom and good love relationships. A stone of happiness and provides economic stability. Provides energy, vitality and strength. Strengthens and livens the body therefore is recommended to people who suffer from weakness or exhaustion.

Left a feeling of distaste in me after reading all that bullshit. I'm going to print out replacement cards, with some actual interesting data.

you know, if crystals had any power in the first place, then it would be pretty damn useless after it has been hacked from whichever cave it was growing in, or stone it has formed in. then polished, handled, chemically processed, and shaped and cut.

Do you mean carbon in a specific crystalline form? You know, the kind that forms under a little heat and much intense pressureā€¦ ::)

(Hint, hint, a phase diagramā€¦)

yes that's the one ;D and the bigger it is the more power it has...weird hey? It's as if it seems to create a vacuous stare followed by a discernible weakening of the knees...an arm stretches out involuntarily, limp-fingered, the mouth pouts and when obtained it causes fixation and immense jealousy from those who don't have!
