Functions of gemstones

Gemstones for emotional wellbeing: Hold onto a garnet or amethyst whenever you feel angry and rub the stone until you feel calm. If you're stressed about something, use an onyx or moonstone instead. To battle depression, use citrine or amber. You can wear these gemstones as jewellery or carry them with you.
Gemstones for intellectual wellbeing: Citrine builds concentration and creativity and enhances problem-solving skills. Sapphire and peridot bring focus and mental alertness; black tourmaline aids memory and analytical skills.

Gemstones for sexual wellbeing: Wear a garnet to enhance sensuality, passion and libido, and a pink tourmaline to rid yourself of inhibitions. 
Gemstones for meditation: Amethyst is excellent for meditation when you use it as an object of concentration. When you’re done meditating, use a smoky quartz to wrap up your thoughts and ground yourself.
Gemstones for love and romance: Wear a ring containing an amethyst and a citrine, side by side. Or, wear a pink tourmaline as a pendant (near your heart). You can also wear a diamond or ruby to attract love into your life.
Gemstones for protection: Place black obsidian near the door of your house to prevent negative energies from entering. A golden tiger-eye in your car will protect against accidents.

If you’re faced with a specific challenge or struggling with a particular problem, you will find that the proper use of gemstones will help you along the way. They will not do your work for you, but they will certainly make you better equipped to overcome your problems.
