Gemming Question

Death Knight
I know that if my socket bonus is strength, I gem for it. So I use hybrids if the gem slot is not red.

What about my secondary stats? Do I ever gem for mastery/haste/crit? If so, is there a magic number? That is, if it's +60 mastery, then ignore the socket bonus and gem straight strength but if it's +120 mastery then use a hybrid to get the socket bonus?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
The gems you use are:
Etched Imperial Amethyst
Bold Primordial Ruby
Skillful Vermilion Onyx

The only time you gem for secondary stats is when you are going 2h when you gem for haste or when you're a tank and you gem for mastery or stam.
