10 Essential Crystals

Who doesn’t love a pretty rock? The ones I list are some of  my favorites and what I feel everyone should have, if they collect and work with crystals. They are all commonly used crystals and each crystal that I list has unique properties and energies to heal different aspects of your life.  Granted there are so many more out in the world and I can’t list every single one out there. I’m sure there will be more blog posts on crystals in the future.

10 Essential Crystals


Deeply cleansing, Amethyst purifies negative energies. You can also use Amethyst for protection and developing your natural psychic abilities. Amethyst cames in many shades of purple, from dark to light. Amethyst has healing powers and is  Chakra balancing.

Clear Quartz

An essential crystal and the most versatile crystal and can have many purposes. Clear Quartz can also enhance the energy of other crystals.  Since Clear Quartz absorbs energies very easily, clearing these stones on a regular basis should be important. Clear Quartz also protects against negativity.  Clear Quartz is most often used to cleanse, open, activate, and  can be used to align all of the chakras.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is known for helping with love,  self-esteem, restores confidence, helps with emotional balance, releases stress/tension/anger, and helps curb jealousy. Even though Rose Quartz does have a high energy, the vibration is also calming and soothing. Rose Quartz is used for the  Heart Chakra.

Golden Tigers Eye

Great for protection,  building confidence and self belief. Tigers Eye also  connects us with the Earth, making it a good choice for grounding stone. Ancients used Tiger Eye as a talisman against bad luck and curses. Tigers eye is also a great healing stone.  Golden Tiger Eye is a powerful Solar Plexus Chakra stone, very helpful to manifest ideas into reality and giving courage when needed.


Selenite is an excellent choice for working with the third eye and crown chakras.  Selenite can also help you through meditation Selenite has a  powerful vibration  and can clear, open, and activate the Crown and Higher Chakras and is excellent choice  for all spiritual work.


Citrine attracts abundance,  creativity and is  great cleanser and regenerator. This stone does not need to be  cleansed. Citrine also opens the mind to new ideas and following through.  Often associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra, Citrine can also be used to cleanse all Chakras.


Carnelian is excellent for restoring vitality and motivation. It is also a high energy crystal and  creates a boost of power, creativity, energy, vitality and sexuality. Carnelian is useful in making decisions by keeping us focused. Carnelian is a powerful Sacral Chakra Stone


Hematite is metallic crystal that protects  you from psychic attacks and negative energies. Hematite also strengthens your aura while defecting these harmful energies that you may come across. Hematite is also good for working with the Root Chakra, helping to convert negative energies into positive vibrations.

Black Obsidian

Black Obsidian Stone is a powerful cleanser and is a strong protection stone. Black Obsidian has powerful properties that will help to shield you against negativity and energy blockages, and has a tendency to work quickly.  Black Obsidian is Root Chakra stone.


Labradorite is a stone of magic, awakening mystical and magical abilities and psychic powers. It strengthens  intuition, balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies. Highly mystical, Labradorite is great for working with the Third Eye Chakra

Crystals can be worn as jewelry, carried in your pocket,  in your purse,  next to your bed or in a place where you spend a lot of time at. They are great to use during meditation, and some can help to amplify your prayers. I personally keep clear quartz in each room since this crystal clears nagitvity and I also keep a tiny bag with all seven chakra coordinated crystals in my purse and also in our bedroom. I also use crystals to cleanse my tarot cards, new and used.

Let me know if you have a favorite crystal and what do you use it for?

  2. I was really into crystals when I was younger because my grandfather actually had a huge collection – some found on his own climbing tours up the Swiss mountains! Now I regret not bringing some with me to Korea, I’ll have to change that. Really love Black Obsidian!
