Welcome to our simple and reasonably priced shop.  All of our gems have been magically imbued by the finest wizards this side of the Tappan Zee Bridge.  Thankfully, that’s the good side.  Now, here is a list of our categories.  You are responsible for setting it in a piece since we only provide the gems.  Enjoy.

  • Emeralds– This grant the wearer telepathy, which grows in power as you add gems. The downside is that you get very sleepy whenever you probe a mind.  No coffee can undo this drowsiness.
  • Rubies– The wearer can conjure a shield of their own design on command.  When activated, the gem will cause random people to fall in love with you.
  • Sapphires– The wearer is able to look into the future.  The more stones, the further you can see.  While using this, you will not be aware of your surroundings.  It can also go off without warning if worn for too long.
  • Amethyst– The wearer can maintain a sense of calm for as long as they keep the gemstone pressed against their forehead.  Works best in a crown, but overuse can create a sense of drunk-like euphoria.
  • Amazonite– Grants the wearer the ability to identify toxic individuals.  Do with this information what you wish.  Downside is that you can only get this information 2 days after the gem reads the person.
  • Jasper–  The wearer gains unbreakable balance both physically, mentally, and emotionally.  This also means that they will find it difficult to be sad in situations that require it.  For example, mourning a loved one will be nearly impossible until the gem is removed and a backlash will occur.
  • Moonstone– Grants the wearer include luck when it comes to achieving their goals and gaining the basics for survival.  This does cause at least one person around you to have bad luck because the universe needs to remain balanced.
  • Topaz–  The wearer gains superhuman strength of body and mind.  This does not give you any level of invulnerability.  You also will have to learn to hold back, so expect to break many things until you gain control.  (AVOID HANDSHAKES AND HUGS!)
  • Tiger’s Eye–  Grants the wearer a sense of confidence and bravery whenever they feel stressed.  Downside is that you will battle a tiger in your dreams every night and losing means the gem won’t work for the next day.
  • Peridot–  The wearer gains moderate levels of healing of both themselves and others.  It means cuts, broken bones, and common diseases, but not cancers, missing limbs, or other severe issues.  The wearer will also become incapable of lying and occasionally have the urge to be a nudist.
  • Lapis Lazuli–  The wearer gains a total awareness of their surroundings.  This does not mean you will understand everything going on because it still takes the brain a bit to process.  Can cause severe migraines and vertigo.
  • Fluorite–  Increases the wearers ability to absorb, retain, and recall knowledge.  Side power is the ability to read at superhuman speeds.  Half of what is learned will be forgotten when gem is removed.
  • Citrine– The wearer gains the ability to find ways to make easy money.  It is very similar to luck, but requires effort and decisions to be made.  Downside is that the gem does NOT take the wearer’s safety into consideration.
  • Aquamarine–  Grants the wearer the power of astral projection.  The usual dangers of getting lost on the astral plane and your body not being protected apply.  Also, you can be spotted in digital cameras and you will be in your underwear.
  • Diamonds–  Grants the wearer the ability to steal and absorb the powers of other gems and magical beings.  Downside is that you will go mad with power and start on the path of world domination.  (Please sign waiver to assume all responsibility for supervillain actions.)

    😊😊😊 Definitely want the diamond! The amethyst and topaz are great too!!! Hopefully the peridot can offset the supervillain tendencies.

  3. My brain emulates the Lapis Lazul effects already, except for the total awareness bit 😱

  5. The Amazonite one actually sounds useful, even if there is a delay in understanding. Say, do I still have that necklace of Amazonite beads here?

    No, they’re Aventurine. Hope that doesn’t mean I’ll have an adventure soon!

    Aquamarine is my birthstone, being a Pisces. It sounds interesting, but not so much the being spotted by digital cameras in my underwear!
