I’ve always loved crystals, I still remember the first crystals I ever owned.
I must have been about 5 or 6. I was visiting the Aillwee Caves in County Clare with my parents and I was so intrigued by the colours and the shapes, so I asked my dad to buy me a little bag of crystals that they were selling in the gift shop.
The crystals were tiny but I was in love with them, I got about 10 different types and I knew I had to have more and my love and passion for crystals grew from there!
There are hundreds of different crystals on the earth. Crystals are used for their healing energy by many people and some people just have them because they are so beautiful. However, every ancient civilization has used crystals in a variety of ways, from healing, to offerings and for jewelry.
But if you are any bit interested in crystals, I've listed 4 crystals that are believed to be the best to own and use.
The Clear Quartz crystal is one of the most common crystals in the world. Clear Quartz can be found on almost every continent.
Although they are called 'Clear Quartz', they range from a clear stone to milky or cloudy.
They are believed to bring clarity to your communication, amplify your thoughts and may assist you with clearer thinking. Clear Quartz are commonly used by healers as part of crystal healing.
The Rose Quartz crystal is a crystal that derives its name from its lovely rose pink colour. These quartz crystals come in a range of beautiful shades of pink.
Rose Quartz is known as the 'love stone' as the message it emits is a strong vibration of unconditional love, joy, warmth and emotional healing.
A lot of people wear Rose Quartz, including myself, it is believed to emit a soft sweet energy, allowing you to see the beauty in the world.
Amethyst crystals are also part of the quartz crystal family and one of the most well-known crystals, this stone has been found in a large number of locations, including Europe, Russia, India, Sri Lanka, East Africa, Brazil, Mexico, Uruguay, Bolivia the USA and Canada.
Many believe that Amethyst crystals aid healing and that they bring intense spiritual growth, this could be because Amethyst crystals are linked to our third eye chakra (more on Chakras later).
Amethyst can also be used to aid sleep, I put an Amethyst under my pillow every night and I sleep soundly, of course I can’t prove that I sleep soundly because of the crystal but what’s the harm?
It’s funny, there is some controversy around Citrine crystals, most of the “Citrine” crystals out there are actually heated Amethyst , however most people don’t care about this as they buy their crystals for their beauty. Natural Citrine crystals have a soft yellow colour and some look like smoky quartz. Most of the genuine Citrine comes from Brazil, USA and Russia.
The Citrine crystal can be used to aid manifestation of prosperity, particularly if you combine it with the power of affirmations.
Citrine is also used to soothe fear and anxiety. By allowing you to let go of your fear it may aid you to be able to accept into your life the good that is coming your way.
If you enjoyed this little blog on crystals let me know because I would love to write more and talk more about looking after your crystals and what crystals might work best for you and also what crystals work best or your Chakras.
Lots of LOVE,
