Hello and welcome to my sum of knowledge on the effects and powers of precious and semi-precious stone in the physical world. This information might be against or contradictory to what you believe so please don't flaunt your beliefs on others.
WE can all agree that precious and semi-precious stone is one of the greatest marvels of this world and i will try to explain why we have a certain affinity twords special formations of minerals.
Difference between Cut and Uncut gems.
Cut gems are generaly more pleasing to the eye , the effect of a cut gem is especialy focused by its shape allowing for a smaller but more controlled energy source.In ancient times jewelers were given specific instructions on how to cut gemstones and jewels for priests and practicers of the arcane arts.
Uncut gems are in their raw and pure form radiating intense energy which is in a chaotic state and incredibly hard to control.
Scientifical and Pseudoscientifical facts:
-Minerals like all matter radiate energy , some to a dangerous high level such as uranium.
-Humans have an inherant love for minerals and their uses.
-Different kind of minerals produce different emotions and effects on humans.
Supercharged , and dangerous:
Radioactive minerals such as Iridum or Uranium , a human cannot harness their power physicaly without destroying themselves.If we could we would have way greater control over our surroundings with the ability to do it remotely (Various forms of kinesis abilities).
