From my limited knowledge of healing rocks, they are a "New Age" concept that are purported to have special powers with respect to averting evil, or healing or bringing favorable events to people or specific places. As such, I would say that they are just the latest in a long line of deceptions ultimately arising from Satan that are designed to draw people (including Christians, if possible) away from the one true source of protection, healing, and blessing -- the God of the Bible. In fact, the Bible specifically condemns such occult beliefs or practices in passages such as Deuteronomy 18:9-12 and Ezekiel 13:18-21.

For Christians, God is the one true source of all good things (James 1:17), and Christians have unlimited and powerful (James 5:16) access to Him in prayer through Christ. Why would they then want to trust or use anything that God has created (and that is thus subordinate to Him), rather than committing themselves and their concerns directly to Him in prayer and faith? In my opinion, this is just one more example of people needing some sort of tangible, visible object to serve as the focus for their faith. As Jesus told Thomas (who likewise demanded similar confirmation), "Blessed is he who has not seen and yet has believed (John 20:29)."
