Crystal Meanings Explained: Top 5 Crystals and how they Can Heal
Whether you’re across crystal meanings or not, there’s something truly magical about a crystal if you ask me. I’ve got a few in my home, that sit on my desk in the office, and they look absolutely stunning. The glisten, the shine, the ability to work them into vignettes with ease; there’s just so much to love about them.
Like a tattoo, I’m convinced that once you get one, you end up getting a hunger to attain more. Or at least that’s true in my case!
If you are keen to find out more about crystal meanings and what some of the most popular ones are said to bring to your life, look no further than today’s post. I’ve asked the divine Rachel Crethar from Rock & Co to take us through her top five crystals and what they mean. Better still, Rachel’s been kind enough to offer a wellness pack containing six crystals that you have the chance to win further down in this post.
Rachel tells me that when it comes to why crystals are so special, they appeal to people on two levels.
“Crystals are not only beautiful to look at, they are a great way to bring a little magic into your life,” she says.
“When choosing a crystal, some people choose simply by what they are drawn to, whereas others start by asking themselves what area of their life they would like to see an improvement in,” Rachel explains. “Whether that’s love, creativity, money, mental clarity and so on”.
Below, Rachel explains some crystal meanings so you can find the right one for you!
Crystal Meanings: 5 Rocks Explained
Clear Quartz is known as the ‘master healer’, and the most versatile crystal – making it the perfect stone for the start of any collection.
