These days, healing crystals have almost become synonymous with jewellery and decoration. However, what many don’t know is that the healing properties of crystals have been used for centuries by cultures all over world.

In fact, it’s believed that Alexander the Great wore an emerald ring given to him by Aristotle when he went into battle against King Porus of India in 326 BCE. 

Not only are healing crystals beautiful to wear and display, but they also possess special metaphysical properties that can promote health and wellbeing across all aspects of one’s life.

We have curated this easy-to-read reference guide to give an overview of each important aspect when embarking on harnessing the power of healing crystals in your life.

Whether you’re a newcomer to the world of crystals, or well-acquainted with their properties and abilities, you’ll find anything you need to begin your journey….

Let’s begin!

What are healing crystals?

Most healing crystals are formed deep within the earth, under tremendous pressure and heat. Over millions of years they slowly rise to the surface, where they are mined and polished.

The unique properties of each crystal are determined by its chemical composition, lattice structure, and impurities. For example, quartz crystals are believed to be helpful for focus and concentration because of their piezoelectric properties.

How do healing crystals work, and where do they get their powers?

There is no one answer to the question of where healing crystals derive their power. Some people believe that crystals are imbued with energy from the millions of years they spend below the Earth’s surface, while others believe that they are charged with energy from the cosmos.

Regardless of their origin, there is no denying that healing crystals have a profound impact on people’s lives. Crystal experts believe that each type of crystal has its own unique energy signature that can help to promote balance and harmony in the body.

When used correctly, crystals can help to align the chakras, release negative energy, and promote feelings of well-being.

With so many potential benefits, it’s no wonder that more and more people are turning to healing crystals for help in achieving a sense of inner peace.

Which healing crystals should I have in my collection?

This is a very personal question, and to find the answer you must look deep inside yourself to discover what you want to achieve in life. To know one’s desires, personal limitations, fears and motivations then allows you to curate a collection of crystals that can be used across your daily life to enhance your skills, damped your doubts and achieve anything you want to in life.

There are a vast array of healing crystals available which can be used to help with all sorts of situations. Once you have decided the purpose for your healing crystals, I recommend researching the specific healing crystals available to help with each particular scenario. A good place to start would be:

Do I need to cleanse my healing crystals?

Like any instrument in life, healing crystals will have a greater ability to prove effective if you know the basics of how to properly care for them.

The same way a skilled chef would sharpen his knife to avoid it becoming dull, a diligent spiritualist will ensure their crystals are cleansed regularly to sustain the positive vibrations emitted.

Crystals absorb all negative energies and vibrations from the people and environment surrounding them. This property of crystals is powerfully utilised by some to heal their minds, bodies and souls. This means that after a while the crystal must be purged of all negativity they have absorbed.  In essence, it refreshes and renews them.

For this reason, if you use your crystals for healing, then absolutely you need to cleanse them. However, if you use your crystals more for decoration, then you don’t need to do this so regularly.

How should I cleanse, treat or clean my healing crystals?

Do all healing crystals need cleansing?

Some crystals never need cleansing.  Citrine, Kyanite and Azeztulite are self-cleaning.  Clear Quartz and Carnelian cleanse other crystals, but may need cleansing themselves afterwards.

How often should I cleanse my healing crystals?

Use your intuition as to how frequently to cleanse them. I like to cleanse right before I set my intentions.

Crystals should always be cleansed when you buy them and after being used for healing. In addition, it’s important to always cleanse jewellery that comes to you from someone else, so as not to pass any historical negative energies onto you!
