What is Crystal Healing? The Basics

Updated: Jul 9, 2023

Energy and crystal healers are going mad for all-natural crystal collections, from the Stone


Our crystals are all natural, without any blood, sweat, or tears in the mining. When we say ethically

sourced crystals, gemstones, and fine earth minerals, we mean that everything in our collections has been carefully curated. We buy minerals second hand from other collectors, we go out into Scotland and we find them ourselves, and we create Rockhounding content so that you can see for yourself how the crystals we sell are found.

If you're lucky enough, you might see us finding a crystal you buy!

You can follow us on TikTok , subscribe to our YouTube Channel , Join us on Instagram , or add us

on Facebook , if you want to keep up to date with our crystal and rock hunting adventures. From

finding agate to climbing in the Scottish Highlands, join us as we track down some of the UK's finest minerals, in some of the UK's finest terrain.

Today, we want to turn our attention to crystal healing. What is it, how do you do it, and can we

help you learn it? Read on to find out.

What is Crystal Healing?

Crystal healing is an alternative medicine which connects parts of the chakra to certain crystals that echo in the same vibrational field. This holistic approach to chakra alignment brings balance to the spiritual self, resulting in harmony and elevation, in all aspects of life.

Crystal healing is the art of using the vibrations and frequencies within the crystals, to resonate with the chakra points and energies within the person. Connecting the correct crystal, to the correct person, at the correct time in their life, can change things for the better. Get the wrong one, however, and crystal healing has the opposite effect.

Before you scoff at the idea, this is the same feeling that makes you select a particular choice in any given situation. It is the synchronicity of natural frequencies and the human body, mind, and soul. It is the same resonance found in everything alive... crystals are the earth's way of giving us a direct channel by which we can attune ourselves to these frequencies and, as such, raise our own vibration to be more attuned to everything else on the planet.

How do Crystals Work?

Crystals are placed at significant points of your body, also known as chakra points. These are the spiritual nerve centres of the body's energy field. Aligning the right crystal in the right place helps to restore that energy field to its natural place. Crystals, in essence, are a spiritual reset button. It can take years of study to learn which crystals affect which chakra point and in what way.

This isn't something you should mess around with, without doing your research.

Put an overactive crystal on your root chakra and nothing will satisfy you until it wears off. Similarly, a chaotic tektite like moldavite placed on the crown chakra can cause problems to those who aren't prepared.

What are the Frequencies of Crystals?

Crystals oscillate from 40kHz all the way up higher than a thousand mega hertz. There are some

that you can feel before you touch them. Scientifically speaking, the oscillation refers to the amount of movement between the crystal's atoms. Harnessing these vibrations is the secret to crystal healing.

To put all of that into perspective, human cells oscillate at between 3 and 17 hertz. So you really

don't want to put the wrong crystals in the wrong place.

What is the most powerful crystal on earth?

The most powerful crystal on earth is the one that is right for you at that moment. Amethyst helps you dream, obsidian washes away what isn't for you, quartz amplifies other stones. The best crystal is that which is best suited to the intent you have at the time.

At the moment, the trend is for Moldavite. This mysterious tektite was formed when a meteor smashed into the Czech Republic. If someone who sells it to you says anything about mining season being closed till April, don't listen. It isn't actually mined and there is a lot of fake moldavite out there. Real moldavite is excessively expensive.

How do you get energy from crystals?

You get energy from crystals simply by holding them for a while. You can also place them over

their relevant chakra points, in order to attune to their frequency. Ensure you put the correct crystal on the correct point for best results. Google can help with this.

As a quick-start guide, we have listed some common crystals and which chakra point they attune

with, below.

Crystals and Chakra Points:

  • Amethyst – Crown Chakra

  • Quartz – All Chakras/ Crown Chakra/ Heart Chakra to heal emotional issues

  • Citrine – the Solar Plexus Chakra

  • Rose Quartz – Heart Chakra

  • Agate – depends on colours, check for Chakra colours

  • Labradorite – The Throat Chakra

  • Jasper – Base or Root Chakra

  • Sodalite – Throat and Third Eye/Crown Chakras

  • Carnelian – The Sacral Chakra

  • Jade – The Heart Chakra

  • Petrified Wood – the Root and Sacral Chakras

  • Obsidian – the Root Chakra

A good tip from our founders is to align the crystals with your relevant chakra points and put them

under your mattress. This is the spiritual equivalent of charging you like a big battery, so be sparing.
