Crystal Collection

Starting a crystal collection

Feel What You Are Drawn To

There are so many different crystals in all shapes and sizes, it can be overwhelming deciding where to begin if you would like to start buying crystals for yourself.

Ever since I was a child I was drawn to the beauty of crystals. I would get excited when I found a shop selling them and be mesmerised by the wonder of them. Even nowadays, I do not usually enjoy shopping but, could happily spend hours looking at crystals and cannot resist picking up a few whenever I pass a shop to add to my ever growing collection.

If you are interested in crystals and would like to start buying them, then I would recommend finding your nearest shop and going for a visit. Picking crystals that are right for you is a very personal choice and being drawn to the ones that want to be noticed by you is a wonderful experience. Listening to your intuition come alive and say ‘buy this one’ is a fantastic feeling.

If you are unable to visit a shop in person, then the internet can bring shops to you. There is a wealth of information on shopping sites and many retailers give detailed information and pictures of the crystals they have on offer. Most of the UK independent crystal retailers sell on line, but, unfortunately, so do mass produced, cheaper retailers from China. It is a good idea if you can do some research about where your crystals come from and that they are ethically sourced – that can be difficult to do if there are no details about the retailer selling them – so beware.

If you are overwhelmed by choice and not quite sure what to pick, I would recommend a good starting point as buying a chakra crystal set. This is a set of seven stones that relate to the colours of each of the seven chakras.

Many shops sell chakra stones as a set or will help you choose a set from their stock. Alternatively, you can research and make up your own set. The Chakra colours and some ideas for related crystals are as follows:

Chakra

Root
Sacral
Solar Plexus
Heart
Throat
Third Eye
Crown

Colour

Red
Orange
Yellow
Green
Blue
Purple/Indigo
Violet or Clear

Crystals

Red Jasper or Garnet
Carnelian or Orange Calcite
Citrine or Yellow Jaspar
Peridot or Aventurine
Turquoise or Kyanite
Amethyst or Lapis Lazuli
Clear Quartz or Selenite

How you use these are up to you. You can meditate putting the crystals on their corresponding chakra position on your body, or you can carry them all around with you every day or pick one at random each day to keep with you. Another suggestion (although this will mean you will not see them very much) is to put them under your mattress placing each one in the corresponding chakra position and leave them there for a moon cycle (either full moon to full moon or new moon to new moon).

These are just a few suggestions; you may prefer to buy crystals as jewellery or buy a hundred random ones and put them in a bowl as decoration. But, however you use them one thing is for sure, welcoming them into your life will be a positive energy boost for you and your home.
