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!

  1. I’ve been following Rachel from Rock and Co on Instagram and I really like all her easy to read/understand crystal meanings. I have been looking at adding a wellness pack to my life so this comp is perfect! The citrine is resonating with me the most at the moment, have a dream project I’ve been procrastinating on and a piece of citrine placed on my desk would give me that little bit of a push that I need.

  2. Celestite with its dark inky blue colour and delicate sparkle! The juxtaposition of powerful and soft with confidence and peace is a winning combination. I would wire wrap that beautiful stone and adorn myself every day with it! It would become my embellished mantra.

  3. I’d love to gift mum Clear Quartz, she taught me patience. It would sit on her windowsill and remind her of the gratitude I have for her care.
