Stones for Cosmic Magic

I was thinking about crystals and gemstones which would be great for star- and cosmic magic, but were not linked to astrology or the planets. So I dove into my books and personal BoS and made this list, which I wanted to share with you all. 

Stones for star and galaxy magic

Meteorite: an actual piece of space debris that crashed to Earth. Magical use: protection, journeying, the spiritual breaking through to the physical, wishes, joy, luck, love, in ancient times they were seen as a gift from the Gods

Impact stones: molten rock and glass which formed from a meteor impact. Types of impact stones are moldavite (green), tektite (black), suevite (mixed breccia), Libyan desert glass (milky white) and irgizite (silvery black) and indochinite (black). The names are linked to the places where they are found. Magical use: connecting with the universe, bringing change into the physical realm, transformation, impact, confrontation.
