Introduction To Crystals

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

In addition to their properties & shapes, crystals are used in jewelry to integrate energies & intentions on the go. Adorning yourself with crystals allows you to tap into their beneficial effects throughout the day.

Experiment with wearing crystals on your left and right sides to see what works best for you. Traditionally, the left side is the receiving side, drawing in the energies you want to align with. The right side is the sending side, for what you want to project to a specific person or the universe.

Necklaces: Crystal pendants or beads strung on a chain. Worn close to the heart for emotional healing & energetic alignment. Choker length assists in speaking your truth.

Amulets: Crystal pendants or charms are protective talismans, carrying the energies for the crystal.

Bracelets: Crystal beads or chips strung together, worn on the wrist for personal empowerment & balance. The left wrist is traditionally considered the receiving side, so wearing Crystal bracelets on this side helps to absorb the crystals energy into your being.

Earrings: Crystal studs or dangle earrings, worn to enhance intuition and promote self-expression. For optimal energy flow, it is suggested to wear crystal earrings on the left side, allowing the crystals' vibrations to enter and harmonize with your energy field.

Rings: Crystal gemstones set in rings, worn to attract specific energies and amplify intentions. Wearing crystal rings on the right hand is believed to assist in sending out the crystal's energy and intentions to the world.

Anklets: Crystal beads or charms worn around the ankle, promoting grounding and positive energy flow. Both ankles are considered receptive, allowing the crystal's energy to flow harmoniously throughout the body.

Amulets: Crystal pendants or charms worn as protective talismans, carrying the energy of the crystal throughout the day. Wearing crystal amulets on the left side is believed to attract and enhance the crystal's protective energies, providing a shield of positivity.

By wearing crystal jewelry, you can integrate the unique properties of the crystals into your daily life, embracing their beauty and harnessing their beneficial energies. Remember that you can experiment with different sides and find what feels most aligned and comfortable for you.

2. Sunlight: Place your crystals in direct sunlight for a few hours to recharge and cleanse their energy.

3. Moonlight: Leave your crystals outside overnight under the light of the full moon to cleanse and recharge.

4. Selenite: Use a selenite wand or place your crystals on a selenite charging plate for self-cleansing.
