I was looking at either Mighty Spell Power or Black Magic.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I'm 0/41/30 and incinerate spam...so I've been using a firestone... I take full advantage of the +dmg from direct spells and +crit...whereas the spellstone with +periodic dmg is not going to benefit me as much..

Your best answer is to look at WWS or recount. If more than 50% of your damage comes from DoTs you should use a Spellstone. If more than 50% comes from direct damage then use a Firestone.
This advice overlooks the whole point of the question being asked: Haste is significantly more valuable than crit. Yes, you need to calculate exactly how much DPS you're getting from each type of damage, but you also need to calculate how much DPS you're expecting to gain from each point of crit and haste.
Can anyone run math to be sure? Spellstone is 2.22% haste with 2/2 Master Conjurer which looks very competitive with ~1.4% crit and 1% direct damage.
There's no way to get a general answer with just math for this particular question, since it combines relative and absolute DPS increases, so it will depend entirely on your current gear. For my gear and spec, running a simple CoA/Immo/Incin rotation, Simulationcraft shows 100 DPS for Firestone and 89.5 DPS for Spellstone.

If I have time I:ll edit this post later with some real illustrations to show what I mean.

Given the prioritization of stats (Spell Hit > Spell Power > Haste > Crit > Spirit) discussed elsewhere in the forums, would that also imply that the Spellstone is always > Firestone for temporary enchants, regardless of spec?
Use Lleulier's spreadsheet to determine which is a bigger DPS increase for you.
