Stones, Semi-precious tones, or Gemstones can also be used in Poppet Magick. Like Herbs and Colors, Gemstones also have unique energies and properties that can be used for healing, cleansing, protection, and even love. You can use a gemstone or combination of gemstones that correspond to the type of Spell you want and either insert the gemstones inside the poppet or create a small pouch or "purse" to hold the gemstones and pin it or hang it from the Poppet. Some people simple use the gemstones in the Alter as an extra aid. If you use this method, then try placing the gemstone(s) on the poppet or next to it on the Alter.
