I love crystals, and have dozens (okay, maybe a hundred or so). The types and uses are infinite! When someone asks what crystals to start with, it’s nearly impossible for me to boil it down to a handful.
But we all need a starting place, and these top 5 will definitely give you that.
As you get familiar with the shapes, colors, and vibrations of different stones, listen to your intuition first, experiment with the crystal, then research it. Listen to what your body and soul tell you and honor that above what any book or expert says.
You are the ultimate guide for what works—and doesn’t—with your body, mind, and spirit.
- Selenite – for clearing and raising your vibration; aids sleep and dreamwork
- Black Tourmaline – for repelling negativity and EMF; grounding
- Amethyst – for calming, balancing, and activating your intuition
- Citrine – for healing and abundance
- Rose Quartz – for love, compassion, forgiveness, and gratitude
Along with these, if you’re a psychic or empath, I recommend malachite, which soothes an overactive empathic chakra, and labradorite to strengthen your psychic boundaries.
What was your first crystal? Do you use any of these?
