Wondering which crystals to bring into your home or office? Or to use in your good feng shui jewelry? Start with our list of 10 most popular crystals and see which ones you like the best. From amethyst to pyrite, each one of those crystals and stones will bring not only beauty but also specific healing energies.
A clear quartz crystal, especially a crystal that is really clear/transparent and has happy rainbows inside it, is an absolute joy to look at! The clear quartz crystal comes in many forms—from tumbled rocks and small points to impressive big clusters and generators. You can also find many carvings made of clear quartz and of course, clear quartz jewelry.
Rose quartz is one of the most popular crystals in healing, jewelry, as well as feng shui. Famous for attracting and keeping love, rose quartz is also used when it comes to healing one's heart from pain and disappointment. You can find all sorts of feng shui adornments made from rose quartz, especially in feng shui for love cures. Rose quartz is inexpensive and easy to find.
Amethyst crystal is unique among all crystals in its popularity and affordability. Mother nature has been generous with the wealth of available amethyst which makes it affordable to choose for your home, office, garden, and even your car! One of the most popular uses of amethyst is in a cluster or tall geode, as well as tumbled rock form. The deeper and more intense the purple color of the amethyst, the higher the price.
Jade seems to be the most popular choice when it comes to various carvings used as feng shui cures. Jade is also much loved in various jewelry pieces, from beads to bracelets and rings. Jade carries a sweet, light, and nourishing energy that can feel very healing. It has a soothing purity about it, and it goes about purifying your energy field in a very accepting, loving, and wise kind of way.
Citrine contains a solar quality of energy; this is why it is traditionally considered a good healing crystal for the solar plexus/third chakra issues. It can help strengthen self-esteem and a positive, vibrant flow of energy in and around one's body. Citrine is also considered helpful in improving digestion and strengthening one's physical endurance.
The popularity of the smoky quartz crystal is due not only to its gorgeous look but also to its affordability and the energy it provides. Grounding in an uplifting kind of way, the smoky quartz also provides a subtle energy of protection and balance. Just as with the citrine crystal, it is important to choose natural smoky quartz (not a heat-treated one).
Ammonites are considered a powerful feng shui cure! This basically means that ammonites have a very strong energy that can shift the energy of any space, be it home or office, to a much higher and better quality of energy. The ammonite that is best to use for feng shui purposes is actually ammolite, the gem-quality part of ammonite, or the opalized fossil. It comes in many beautiful, rich iridescent colors that creates excellent energy.
Tiger's eye is a very protective stone. It has powerful, dynamic energy with a watchful quality to it. After all, there is a reason this stone is called tigers eye! Specific colors of your tiger's eye stone—from golden yellow to deep reds—will also express, in different degrees, strengthening and grounding energy. Tiger's eye also has a mystical, opalescent quality to it, and the combination of solid black color stripes with shimmering golds, browns, and reds make for a very special stone indeed.
The shiny pyrite wakes up any space in a matter of seconds. Highly energizing and freely sharing its optimistic energy, a good quality pyrite is a must for your feng shui collection of crystals and stones. Initially thought to be gold, pyrite is also known by the name of fool's gold. Pyrite mostly comes in clusters, but you can also find pyrite in stunning shapes of cubes and globes.
