Is there a hidden source of prosperity stones just waiting to be picked out of your aquarium gravel? Let's take a look at some photos of my own gravel that I took myself and see what we find.
Don't laugh. Rockhounds will inspect all of their gravel -- even their driveway and garden gravel -- in hopes of finding their newest treasure. Even if you don't have a driveway or a garden, you may have a hidden treasure right there in your goldfish bowl. If you've already read Crystal Cash: Fast Easy Money Magick Using Popular Stones, then you know that's how I got started.
I get the impression that a lot of aquarium gravel is just cleaned-up scrap from lapidary shops or quarries -- the tiny bits of crushed stone that aren't useful for jewelry or other designs. So they end up being polished in a huge tumbler and sold for something like a dollar or two a pound at the Dollar Tree or Big Lots.
As it happens, Quartz is one of the most common minerals found on the earth's crust. In fact, there is only ONE more common mineral, Feldspar. So the odds are high that your gravel has some quartz pebbles in it. Sometimes it's just white milky Quartz. And sometimes it's one of the beautiful color variations, like Amethyst (purple quartz), the classic crystal clear Quartz, Smoky Quartz (brown to black), or Green Quartz.
All of these variations on the theme of Quartz have been used in stone magick for literally thousands of years. Both clear Quartz crystal and Green Quartz are highly honored in gem folklore for their use in drawing money and prosperity, or changing your luck for the better.
Maybe it's time you gave that little bag of gravel from the dollar store a second look. You never know what you might find.
