7 Gemstones and Crystals to Boost Positive Energy

Since ages ago, people have been using gemstones to embellish architecture and clothings for positive influence. Stones and crystals come directly from the rich soils of the earth, and mesmerize people with their colors, textures, and associations with healing properties, luck and positivity. Here are some of the most common ones to start with!


1. Clarity: Quartz

When we hear the word “crystal,” the first image that pops up is actually the quartz. Quartz is one of the most common mineral on earth, while crystal actually refers to the clean-cut, organized structure of minerals. Clear quartz stands out because its transparency and sharp points match our imagination of the ultimate magical crystal! Wear clear quartz to help you clarify and focus.


2. Love & compassion: Rose Quartz

3. Intuition & spirituality: Blue Kyanite

Just like quartz and many other gemstones, kyanite comes in many colors. Blue kyanite has a calming shade of blue with traces of white. Often, the colors of stones give meaning to associated energy. Wearing blue kyanite jewelry or putting a piece at home is good for connecting to your intuition and inner peace.


4. Courage & vitality: Garnet
