I'm new to healing crystals A friend of mine got me interested in them. She is a firm believer in there power & I'm fascinated by them. I joined a forum & was asking what colors would best help me with my problems.
I suffer from bipolar (major depression) & major anxiety. I was told that the colors that would best help me are Labradorite & Citrine & also Lithium phantom Quartz. What I would like to know is this right & do you have these crystals? Also I have heard that some people wear them on a necklace is this true? if not do you keep them with you as in your pocket? And last do they come with instructions on how to cleans them?
Thank you for your time & I will be looking for your reply.
Greetings, and thank you for stropping by our website. Anxiety and depression can be very complex issues which sometimes take years to work out. Since I am not a doctor and cannot offer medical advice, I have to recommend some sort of therapy. That being said, I can tell you from personal experience that crystals can help with depression issues. You can wear one as a pendant, carry one in your pocket, sleep with one under a pillow, meditate with one in your hand or on a chakra, or all of the above if it suits you, and I can tell you that I have done them all.
Lithium Quartz is so named for its Lithium content, which is found in antidepressant medications, and thus has a very soothing vibration. Lithium Quartz can be used to balance the brain and emotions, and uplift the mental and emotional bodies. Lithium Quartz gently brings repressed issues to the surface so they can be addressed and resolved. Working with the Heart Chakra, Lithium Quartz also cleanses and activates all the chakras, and can sometimes help with insomnia. You can see our selection of Lithium Quartz at the following page:
Citrine is has a warm and sunny vibration that can assist with issues of anxiety, due to its energies of optimism and joy. Focusing on the Solar-Plexus Chakra, Citrine offers support for any negative experiences. Citrine is a great ally for activating the imagination and channeling negative emotions into creative pursuits, thereby bringing in a more positive outlook, which in turn can attract synchronicities that flow with ones desires. Citrine is also known to assist in the release of repressed anger, which can often be a hidden cause for anxiety. Citrine is also used to attract abundance. You can take a look at our Citrine items at this page:
Labradorite is a stone of the Third-Eye Chakra and as such, it heightens intuition and may enhance psychic abilities. Meditation with Labradorite can help one to discover and dispel any illusions that are exerting control in ones life. Labradorite is one of the best stones for bringing up past life issues that may be causing emotional problems, so they can be rectified in the current lifetime. Labradorite can balance and protect the aura, and is also good for its assisting in the repair of fractured aspects of the personality, including the ego, so they can be integrated into the whole self. We have some nice Labradorite pieces here:
The one crystal I am suprised was not recommended to you is Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is, in my opinion, the most important crystal for those experiencing any kind of suffering. The strongest Heart Chakra Crystal of the mineral kingdom and a great heart healer, Rose Quartz is used for transmuting negative energy and replacing it with love energy. Rose Quartz can facilitate the release of pent up emotions such as grief, anger, resentment, and other negative emotions that can cause dis-ease. Meditating with Rose Quartz can encourage love, compassion, and forgiveness, but for the self, which is more important than many people realize. You can see our selection of Rose Quartz items here (I really enjoy the Rose Quartz Heart;):
When working with crystals, especially for the issues you mentioned, it is important to cleanse them regularly. To see our article on that subject, see this page:

I hope this information is what you are looking for. Let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck!

|It is possible that the rose quartz had not been cleared, and was carrying with it some negative energy from anyone (or everyone) who had touched it before it came to you. :) (Submitted by: DH on June 10, 2012)|
| Is it possible that Rose Quartz could CAUSE depression? I was given a beautiful piece of RQ and I started sleeping with it & carrying it in my pocket. After a week of constantly being around the crystal, my personality changed 180 degrees. Instead of being high energy & vivacious, I was exhausted all the time & felt really depressed. I stopped carrying it for a two days & felt much better. Then when I thought it couldn't be the RQ that caused my personality to shift, I started carrying it again. Then the awful feelings returned, but this time much stronger. I was grouchy at work & could barely get off the couch when home. It was actually painful to be awake. |
Last night I moved the crystal so it wasn't near me & w/in 8 hours I felt much better.
Does any of this make any sense??? (Submitted by: Brandy on January 21, 2011)
|one week or a few days is right around the right time for the cleansing period to work when working with crystals such as in crystal healing. you might have "healing crisises" and have visions, memories come back (bad ones i mean), emotional moments, and just not feeling right, but usually after waiting it out and continuously wearing the crystals, the energies sort it all out. its basically kinda like a "Detoxifying" period. i doubt rose quartz could cause depression, maybe it was just cleaning out the blockages you have had inside and then if you continued and pushed through, you would have felt better. it takes around a month to finally see a good improvement or 21 days. after that you should feel better with the stone. if ur using the stone for those healing purposes and to feel better, its recommended to wear them at all times close to your skin (preferably over the heart chakra area) for maybe 4-6+ months to see better results. :) i know im wearing mine for like a year or two. its not unsual actually to have people have bouts of crying and letting go of sad things when you try rose quartz, its good for that to let it all out. :) id suggest to just flow with it and let the crystal do the work.
