Also known as Gemetrei, Gamathei, and Irish Wish Stones or Irish Wishing Stones.
Certain natural stones or gems, which, because of some powerful astrological influences, were said by medieval occultists to be magically efficacious and to have medicinal significance.
In ancient Irish traditions, the wish or wishing stone was an effectively empowered gem, capable of granting one single wish per person or user. Powdered Gamalei stone was also used for spells, potions and other magical rituals.
According to occult tradition, Gamalei stones are supposed to have celestials potencies and to present superior constellations imprinted, and to take shape in wonderful characters, signs and symbolic figures. They are said to be found occasionally by miners on the mountains and on the banks of rivers.
Artificial Gamalei are those engraved with astrological, hermetic or magical symbols, for use as talismans.
