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.

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.
