Types Of Crystal Gemstones
So you are ready to add some crystals to your home and rituals. There are four types of crystals to choose from: raw or rough crystals, clusters and geodes, slices, and points or wands.
Raw or rough crystals are the crystals that come straight from the earth. They are rough and rocky and crystals such as rose quartz or amethyst are often found in this form. When left in their natural state, some people believe you can connect with them more deeply. They give off a gentle and diffused energy that can have a positive effect on a space or even an emotional state.
Clusters and geodes are visually stunning stones. They usually feature a hollow formation that is filled with crystals. These types of crystals have powerful frequencies and can send out a wonderful calming and purifying energy in a space. This is a popular choice for both its power and beauty.
Slices are when a gemstone is cut into a thin piece that is then polished. With this type of crystal you can really enjoy the inner beauty of the crystal. These types of crystals are perfect for decoration and adding a peaceful energy to the space.
Wands or points are often used as a healing tool. They are excellent energy transmitters. Quartz is one of the crystals often found as a wand or point and is known for its purifying and cleansing qualities.
There is no right of wrong choice when choosing which type of crystal to add to your collection. More than anything, the most important thing is your connection to the stone. If possible hold the crystal in your hand and close your eyes to tap into intuitive feelings about the stone. If you are choosing the crystal online you can always close your eyes and envision the stone in your mind’s eye and note what feelings and sensations come to you. As long as you always trust your intuition, the right crystal will find you.
