Clear Quartz

Clear quartz is a must-have for everyone! Quartz is a beautiful and powerful crystal that can be
used for so many things. Clear quartz is often used for healing the body and mind. It brings a
calm and peaceful energy to the holder. It can also be used to amplify the energy of other healing crystals, making it a great companion to your favorite crystals as well as selenite for the ultimate cleanse and protection.

Clear quartz can be used to boost your immune system and balance your body inside and out. One of the best things about clear quartz is that it can be used as a substitute for any chakra energy if you happen to be missing or haven’t acquired the specific chakra crystal quite yet.

Rose quartz

Rose Quartz is similar to clear quartz with a light pink color that can vary in shade. It’s used
most commonly for healing the skin and the emotional body. Rose quartz can be used for
circulation to the skin to promote a youthful appearance. For the emotional body, rose quartz is
a healer of self-esteem and promotes self-love.

Rose quartz is used abundantly in many love and attraction spells because it’s also known for attracting love and joy. Rose quartz can be used for the heart chakra and is a great stone to keep in your bedroom or to wear daily in a bracelet or necklace. They also make beautiful rose quartz pendants that you can hang over your rearview mirror in your car or anywhere else you see fit for best use.


Amethyst is beautiful purple quartz that is well known for its calming aura and helpful energy
when it comes to dealing with negative emotions. This crystal shows its true power when it
comes to coping with mental health struggles ranging from grief to depression and anxiety.

As the mind heals, so does the physical body. Amethyst is used to help with headaches,
enhance the immune system, and regulate hormones. Along with rose quartz, Amethyst is
great for your skin, making it a powerful combination for your beauty rituals.

It’s a beautiful crystal to wear daily on a bracelet, necklace, or even as a pair of earrings.
Amethyst is a powerful crystal for the crown chakra that helps you to control and balance
emotions, and to enhance your intuition.


Selenite is a widespread favorite of crystal healers and anyone who uses crystals in their
spiritual practices. It is used to charge other stones and balance the energy of the body.
Selenite is a high-vibration crystal that can help with improving overall health and the immune
system along with improving the effects of other healing crystals.

Selenite is particularly useful for helping one to forgive and find peace. In addition, selenite is
amazing for cleansing negative energies in many circumstances. Use it while smudging or
charging your home, tarot decks, or other crystals.

Selenite is helpful to keep by your bedside, or where you store your other crystals. It’s also an
awesome crystal to keep by your front door to help cleanse the energy of people as they enter
your home. When wearing selenite jewelry, be mindful that it is water-soluble so you need to
keep it dry for it to remain in good condition.

Tigers eye

Tiger’s eye is a popular healing crystal used for helping to ground and center while helping you
improve your focus. Keep it on you when you are working or studying to help strengthen your
retention of knowledge and your memory.

For those with memory and focus issues, Tiger’s Eye can be a blessing. Tiger’s Eye is also
useful for attracting luck and protecting your personal energy field. This being said, be sure to
use this crystal when conducting manifestation rituals to aid the process!

Tiger’s Eye bracelets are a beautiful way to take advantage of this crystal’s powers in your daily
life. Keeping a chunk of Tiger’s Eye on your desk is a good way to help improve your focus for
work and studying. If you are doing healing work, place Tiger’s Eye over your solar plexus

Black Tourmaline

Black Tourmaline is an amazing crystal for healing. It can be found in many health and beauty
products due to its neutral energy properties. Black tourmaline can be used to increase

circulation and detox the body. This crystal is often used to fight the effects of environmental
pollution, including EMF pollution. Talk about a big impact!

This is a wonderful crystal to wear as well as keep around your home, particularly in your
bedroom and near electronic devices.

There are several ways to use Black Tourmaline. Wearing Black Tourmaline can bring you daily
protection while keeping a piece near or under your bed can help fight off nightmares, bad
dreams, and sleep paralysis. Black Tourmaline is also widely used in crystal-infused water for
whole-body benefits.


Citrine is the perfect crystal for revitalizing creativity and bringing the mind back to life when
battling depression and fear. It can also be used to help improve digestion, circulation and
improve overall physical and mental endurance. Citrine is the perfect crystal for those looking to
add new, positive energy to their lives.

To fully reap the benefits of citrine, try wearing jewelry pieces made with citrine beads. Citrine
can be placed over the root chakra when doing healing work.

Don’t forget that your crystals are the strongest and safest when they’re cleaned regularly!

I absolutely love learning about the meaning of crystals. I have several crystals. There’s a “rock shop” in my town where I go and will take my dog, Henry. He always picks out his own crystal. It’s amazing how he’ll pick a crystal that he needs. I even wrote an article on it.

You did a fabulous job with providing detailed information on these 7 healing crystals. I’m sharing it with my dog friends who have been asking for this exact information. Thanks! 😊💖🐶
