Hi, I am new to all of this and was wondering how to choose crystals. I noticed some gemstone qualities can be graded, such as Extra, A, B, etc. Should i assume that the best quality ones will be the most effective? Also, what about size, or if the stones are rough or have been polished? Many thanks,
Thank you for your inquiry. This is a common question/concern. The grade of a crystal refers to its physical qualities. The higher the grade of a crystal typically means it has less inclusions and/or matrix and more clarity and/or vibrant color. This does not necessarily mean they will be more effective, as it depends on what you will use them for. Some people prefer to use Clear Quartz with inclusions or that are slightly cloudy for programming as they feel it can hold onto a program better than one with complete clarity. Shape is a matter of personal preference as well, but does affect how the crystal directs energy. Additional information about this topic can be found in these articles.
