What witch doesn’t love some crystals? Many of us have vast collections of crystals, and I regularly see customers returning every few days to pick up this or that for some spellwork. Which stones are the best, though? I’ve put together my top picks for crystals; feel free to leave your top essentials in the comments!
Quartz is the number 1 all-around crystal for good reason. Quartz is a catalyst stone, channeling all kinds of energy and boosting the strength of any other stones alongside. Quartz will take any intention you give it and magnify it, amplifying your power as it heads out into the universe. You can’t go wrong with a collection of quartz!
2. Black Tourmaline
Quartz may be the all-purpose catalyst, but black tourmaline is the all-purpose cleanser. Not only does this stone not need cleansing itself, it can be used to cleanse and reset your other stones. It is a grounding and protective stone, making it a good one to have on hand whenever you are out and about or working your magick. I personally prefer tourmaline crystals over tumbles because I love the long crystalline structure of this stone!
Carnelian is a stone of joy and comfort. Associated with the sacral chakra, carnelian is an excellent stone for relationships, especially romantic relationships. It also helps to alleviate depression and improve the outlook on the world. Keep some by your bedside for sweet dreams, or wear it in a cage or on a bracelet to keep your mood up throughout the day. Your magick flows where your attention goes, so let carnelian keep your thoughts on the lighter side!
4. Tiger’s Eye
The beautiful golden flash of genuine tiger’s eye is eye-catching, to say the least! This stone, associated with the will chakra, helps to focus your intent and boost your outgoing energy, making it an effective tool for casting spells. Paired with some of that catalyzing quartz, what can’t you accomplish with your magick?
