I'm am doing research for a novel I am writing. I don't have a lot of time to explain it, but I need a gemstone that is considered highly powerful. It is an important detail that drives the plot.
crystals are considered powerful, but i don't know if that is really a gemstone, and crystals are kind of cliche.
Although it is not the most physically appealling QUARTZ is "the stone of power" it is used to magnify another stones powers and is a balancing stone for healing.The more opalescent quartz with gold bands is highly prized by many healeers and spellcasters.
