Have you ever thought about how to combine these stones? After all, there are certain rules on which gemstones go well together and, without following them, your favorite stones may not harmonize, or may even lose their properties and influence on you altogether. It is important to note that there are also some stones that are simply not compatible at all.

Here are some examples:
3. COMBINATION OF STRUCTURE
Gemstones can also be combined in terms of their crystal structure. This could be hexagonal (Aquamarine, Beryl, Emerald, etc.), cubic (Garnet, Diamond, etc.), triagonal (Quartz, Jasper, Agate, etc.).
4. COMBINATION BY A STONES GROUP
For example, the stones of the Garnet group (Garnet, Rhodolite, Pyrope, etc.) will combine well with each other. Very often the stones of the Quartz group are combined - Amethyst, Citrine and Quartz of their various shades. Stones of the same group usually complement each other and work perfectly together.
5. COMBINATION BY ELEMENTS
Water, Fire, Air and Earth are the 4 elements of nature. You can safely combine the stones of one element with each other.
