Okay what crystals do you recommend for studying and concentrating. Just started college again and can't seem to focus or concentrate for finishing an accelerated program.

Dear Frank & Mimi~
The stone I normally recommend for anyone who is involved in any type learning process is Calcite. Calcite is known as the stone of the mind. The different colors of Calcite correspond to the chakra system quite nicely. So if you have any other issues you are interested in working on, you might look up our different colors of Calcite to see if any of their metaphysical properties apply to you. Generally, Calcite can be used in meditation to clear out stagnant energies to heighten discernment and judgment. Calcite can be a great support crystal for students, and is known to help one retain any lessons. You can see our selection of Calcite from this page:
For your specific question though, the type of Calcite I would recommend is Optical Calcite. Optical Calcite works with the Crown Chakra to bring in clarity and improved perception, especially of new ideas and concepts. Like Clear Quartz, Optical Calcite can amplify and focus intention, making it perfect for programmed purposes. Optical Calcite is great for body layouts and crystal grids, due to its clarity and parallelogram shape. Meditating with Calcite can facilitate a better understanding of the process of manifestation and its connection to the natural cycles of the Universe. We have some Optical Calcite on this page:
Carnelian is a great stone to help concentration. Carnelian is known to increase personal power and analytical capabilities, and to enhance ones focus and determination. Carnelian is one of the few stones that never needs cleansing, and can actually clear negative energies from other stones it is near to, like in a box or pouch, for example. Carnelian promotes confidence in the inherent perfection of the universe, allowing one to remain in the here and now, to excel at whatever the task at hand is. Carnelian can also meditation by allowing a deeper level of concentration. If you are interested in seeing some Carnelian, please take a look at this page:
I hope this information is what you were looking for.
Peace and Blessings,
