Ultimi is right! Pick some coloured stones, especially pebbles with colour stripes; these have been formed by water. Some things may have to be bought, such as crystals. Amethyst for instance, once more valuable than diamonds; thankfully it is a bit cheaper now, but is still very useful. But, again, it is what you believe that counts. Any doctor will tell you about placebos; any Jewish mother will tell you that chicken soup is as good as any medicine. And of course it is! If you believe it is!

Hehehe first rule of magick. The objects themselves have no power. The power comes from you. The objects are just meant to be a focus, usually fashioned with the intent in mind. Like the example the other poster gave with the heart shaped amulet being for love. The heart shape makes you think or identify with romantic love and thus, it's an appropriate focus object.
An amulet that is purported to be for protection only has the power to invoke thoughts or images of protection in your mind as a focus piece. The magick is supplied by you.
