Subject: - Discount Prices on Healing Crystals, Minerals & Tumbled Stones

I don't know much about healing crystals, but I am excited to learn. I have a quick question about the crystals. I have already purchased a set of Chakras tumbled set (11pc), and is considering purchasing more. It seems that almost all stones have a healing ability. Would it be possible to know instinctively which stones are right for me, and are there any crystals that may carry negative energy? thanks.


Dear Rita~

Greetings, and thank you for visiting our shop. All stones have different vibrations that offer varying types of aid to the user. This is usually, but not always, related to which chakra the stone is most associated with. Just about all stones offer some sort of healing vibration, but it is usually limited to a particular area of the body, Clear Quartz being an exception to this. Known as the "Master Healer" of the mineral kingdom, Clear Quartz is known to relieve pain and bring healing to any area where the crystal is placed on the body. Being an efficient amplifier of intent, Clear Quartz can be programmed for a specific purpose, such as healing and protection. In case you are interested, our selection of Clear Quartz can be seen here:

It is my view that all crystals are gifts from our planet to aid us in our own personal and spiritual growth.  While there are not any crystals that carry negative energies per se, it is possible to work with a crystal which might bring circumstances that one might perceive as negative.  This doesn't mean the crystal sent out negative energies, rather it may have caused the user to come into alignment with the universe in such a way that certain repressed issues were brought to the surface for the user to work through some personal growth issues.  Other crystals act as catalysts for spiritual growth by bringing great change into one's life.   Again, this may be perceived as a negative, but is actually positive when viewed objectively.   Crystals can also sometimes absorb negative energy during their use and it is necessary to clear them as described in the article listed below. 

It is certainly possible for one to intuitively know which crystals are currently the most appropriate to work with. It is generally believed that, if you are attracted to a particular crystal, then you are meant to work with that crystal and that point in time. Since you already have the 11 piece Chakra Set, you could try attuning to each stone to see how well suited the stone is to work with you. To do this, all you need to do is to spend a fair amount of time with only one stone from the selection. For example, you could spend about a week with only one piece of Tumbled Amethyst. In this case, you could meditate with it on your Third-Eye Chakra, sleep with it in your hand, carry it in your pocket during the day, and so forth. As you take this time with the crystal, you might begin to notice a difference in your general outlook, you might have a new experience during your meditation, or you could experience an insightful dream about a current problem in your life. If you do this with each of the eleven different stones from that set, you will notice that there are certain stones you have more experiences with, while there will be others that do nothing or very little for you at that time. After doing this, you will know which stones you are most suited for at that moment. At a later date, after you've worked with those original stones, you might try spending some time again with those stones that didn't seem to suit you earlier. This happens because you will have worked through certain issues and acheived growth that will then ready you for new work with new crystals.

Please note that most crystals need to be cleansed on a regularr basis when they are frequently used. For information on this subject, please see our article on that subject here:  

If you would like to read about programming your crystals, we also have an article on that subject here:

I hope this information helps you in your experience with crystals. Learning about crystals is, in my opinion, a lifelong pursuit. Enjoy it.

Peace and Blessings,

~Crystal CAT
