What If A Crystal Is Not What I Thought It Was?

I have a bunch of crystals that I'm not sure what they are. My question is - if I think a crystal is one thing and that's how I use it, but in fact it's a totally different crystal, what will happen? Thanks.

Hi R:

I think that you have seen the videos that Lourdes and I do for the Healing Crystals You Tube channel.  Well we are constantly arguing about whether a crystal is one type or another.  My point is that very often even those of us who work with crystals all the time aren't absolutely sure what type of crystal it is. 

My feeling is that if you love it and it's energy is helping you then it does not matter what it is.  If you are using a Lepidolite like it is an Amethystand it is working for you then I would not worry about it.  All crystals do the same thing...they surround us with positive, healing energy that makes our life better.  When we talk about how a certain crystal works for a certain illness or purpose we are speaking in generic terms.  Every crystal and every person is an individual and no two are the same.  Trust your instincts and let the crystal work with you however feels most positive and you will be absolutely fine.

And remember that there are lots of resources to help you identify your crystals, if it makes you feel more comfortable.  Always feel free to use the many pictures on our website as a resource

It is always nice to hear from you and I hope that I was able to offer some guidance. Always feel free to reach out with any other questions. 

Wishing you lots of Love and Light!

Crystal Blessings!

  hey R, I know what most of my crystals are but I still have a dozen unidentified ones lol the thing is I recently started gridding & without really knowing what I was doing I chose the crystals I used "instinctively" for the purpose of the grid. It wasn't till after some research that I realised I had actually chosen quite well which to me enforces what Tara was saying about it feeling "right". my own experience has taught me to trust in my choices & to believe that "if it feels right, it is right". many crystal blessings, Mara xxx  (Submitted by: mara on February 02, 2014)
