Anyone else need all the good vibes they can get? Or maybe you just want to trade in your go-to charm necklace for something a little…~vibier~? Fans of crystals say these sparkly rocks vibrate on frequencies that can connect with our own, promoting intelligence, calmness, self-love, and all sorts of other positive qualities. They work like this: The crystal’s energy combines with our own vibes, creating a whole new wavelength that has specific qualities. And hey, if you’re not sure about all that, even crystal skeptics have to agree that they’re pretty, right?
There tons of way you can use a crystal: You can wear one on a piece of jewelry, place one on your bedside table, set them throughout your home, meditate with them, set them on your altar, and even carry one with you in your bra. Of course, you can also use them as decor, because even skeptics have to admit these lil guys are gorgeous.
A note on crystal shopping: There aren’t any international regulations on crystal mining, and some crystals on the market have been mined by forced or child labor, or severely impact the environment they’re mined from. When you’re crystal shopping, avoid crystals that seem suspiciously cheap, and seek out shops that share info on their sourcing practices. If in doubt, you can always ask the retailer where their crystals come from. If they don’t know, that’s a bad sign. (For more on ethical crystal shopping, read this piece.)
If you can’t stroll on down to your local witch shop these days (what, you don’t have one of those?), you can find plenty of crystals online. Here are some of them:
