SO STONED RN.

Call us Spencer Pratt, we don’t care, we freakin’ love crystals (and Spencer Pratt). They’re impossibly pretty, they serve as fabulous coffee table/#shelfie accessories, and, bonus: they supposedly do wonderful things for us and for our surroundings.  

As the theory goes, crystals hold stable vibrations because of their lattice-like atomic structure. Scientifically, the atmosphere, AKA the world around us, is full of vibrations, and crystals, being the relatively stable matter they are, help to minimize these unsteady vibrations. In short, crystals absorb bad vibes. 

But, that’s not all they do! Crystals don’t just soak up shitty, nervy energy, they also emit super-chill, steady vibrations. Which meannssss, crystals are perfect for us humans, who are made up of a bunch of wackadoodle frequencies that can be easily offset. This is why crystals have become such a huge part of holistic therapies: for their supposed healing properties

When we are unbalanced we, apparently, start to feel sick and unwell in body and mind, so using crystals is a way to restore equilibrium within ourselves and our environment. When choosing a crystal (or crystals; why not be greedy), you’re meant to go with the one/ones that speak to you. Funnily enough when you are in front of a bunch of crystals, you do definitely feel yourself being pulled to certain kinds.

Whether it’s their colour, their shape, their texture, when you hold a crystal in your hand you’ll know whether or not it’s the right one for you. Why this is important is because the different types of crystals have specific strengths to them — as the theory goes — and we thought we’d help you crystal beginners to determine which ones are best for you, or explain why you were drawn to a particular one in the first place.

So let’s get stoned. Let’s take a look at the most common crystals and their meanings/healing properties. Or you can just get your hands on a couple of these puppies below. That’ll work, too.
