Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does the Rock Gem activate upon using Stealth Rock?

And make Stealth Rock 50% stronger on each each time the foe switches?

How I wish it were possible......

No, the elemental gems do not effect status moves at all. Nor do they effect set damage moves. Source
And I am very grateful that it does not make stealth-rock even more annoying than it already is, it would immediately kill all Pokemon with 4x Rock weakness and make Fire/Ice/Bug/Flying types unusable lose half their HP.
