Hello Friends! I have been studying and working with crystals for a couple of years now. I will say I have a mild obsession with them and have collected and worked with a nice variety. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the different kinds crystals and stones though. So I have put together a list of the top 7 basic crystals you need to get started on your journey.
Its always best to let your intuition guide you when selecting a crystal for your own collection. Take a few moments beforehand to meditate or focus on your intentions. Maybe even close yours eyes and take a few cleansing breathes to help ground yourself. Then you will be in the best space for picking up the energies of each crystal. When you have yours eyes set on one pick it up to see how it feels. If it gives you a good vibe, thats all you need to know, thats the crystal for you.
I don’t want you to be limited by this list so don’t feel bad if one or more of these crystals doesn’t really work for you. You may be naturally drawn to more unique or less commonly known ones and thats perfectly fine. Let this just be a basic starting point to peak your interest.
Here is the quick list of all 7 beginner crystals:
1.Clear Quartz: Known as the stone of power or master healer. Amplifies any energy or intention.
2.Rose Quartz: The stone of unconditional love and the heart. Healing the emotions.All types of love; self-love, romance, family, and friendships.
