People often wonder just where to start when they want to work with crystals. Quite often some crystal or stone will attract you because it has healing energies or functions that you would benefit from. You might start with any number of stones, rocks and crystals. Some rocks do contain toxic elements and should not be eaten or soaked in water that will be consumed. These are a few suggestions for commonly avalable stones which have energies and enthusiasm for helping with a wide variety of purposes. While We initially called this section stones for beginners.

I also really like Malichite, Tourquoise and Pertified wood and Turitella Agate or ammonite as part of my basic set.
There are a great many suitable stones for beginners. Intuition should be your ultimate guide.

Many people begin with a chakra or rainbow set getting a selection of stones in each the seven colors of the rainbow plus black, brown and white and a metalic stone like pirite. Size or cost does not matter, but pieces about the size of a quarter work well. They are small enough to carry and place but not so small they get lost too easily. Stones this size can be held in the hand or placed on the body for a laying on of stones healing session. They can also be used for grids and to make elixirs ( if safe for that purpose). Some people prefer stones the size of a dime.

If you are serious about crystal work you will want a variety of quartz crystals and at least several stones of each major color family. You can build up a nice collection gradually. There are a large variety of stones in each color one or two stones of each major color would be a good start. When you do feel guided to work with a stone that is not traditional for a specific purpose follow that intuition. Use all your senses to find the stones that want to help you.

Some Suggestions in the traditional chakra color order .

The suggested stones here are only a very small example of the possibilities but most of these are readily available.
Most have some relatively inexpensive forms .

First chakra root- Physical and survival issues*
Garnet or Ruby or Red jasper

Hematite and Obsidian are possibilities

second chakra sacral- Emotional Issues
Carnelian, fire opal, or fire agate, Orange Calcite, Orange jasper

3rd solar plexus- mental and will issues
Citrine, Topaz, Amber, Sunstone

4th heart - love and spiritual issues
Malachite -Emerald, Green Calcite, Jade, Aventurine, Prase ( I love Dioptaise but it can be hard to find and expensive)

Rose Quartz , Kunzite -Pink marble, Pink calcite , Rhodenite, Rhodocrosite

Sky Blue
5th throat -communication
Blue Lace Agate, Turquoise, Amazonite, Aquamarine, gem silica, Lapis, Sodalite, Blue sapphire, Azurite,

Indigo or Violet
6th brow intuition
Lapis, Sodalite, Amethyst, Sugulite, lepediolyte, Azurite, Kyanite

Violet or Clear
7th crown- higher spiritual understanding
Amethyst etc. Clear quartz, diamond in some systems opaque white stones are suggested quartzite white agate etc.

With a basic rainbow of stones you will have a set that will help all the main areas of body, emotion, mind. and spirit and the organs and glands and major body and aura.

With luck you can assemble a nice set of small stones inexpensively. After this you can start to branch out over time using your intuition and paying attention to signs and information.

These stones or a similar set can also be used for simple divination using an opaque white stone as your personal indicator you ask a question and toss the entire chakra set the stones are "read" according to traditional color and chakra meanings and the way the stones fall in relationship to each other and to the personal stone.

Hi Holistic lady

I have also completed my Reiki 2 attunements recently and I use crystals during Reiki healing. Wear a piece of quartz around your neck. This offers spiritual protection and helps to ground you before doing a healing.

love and light

Thank you! Very Happy I've been making jewelry for almost 20 years and was thinking about making healing jewelry. I've been doing some research on crystals and gemstones and every bit of information is much appreciated. Wink Thank you again! Oh, I also read that quartz crystal cleanses and charges itself. I have a few crystal points and was wondering if I should do anything before wearing them?

I would definately recommend that you cleanse and recharge the quartz. Wash it in running water and dry it in moonlight then recharge it by holding it in your left hand and thinking thoughts of love.
I would be interested in seeing some of your jewellery, particularly if you start working with crystals. Please email me some photos or let me know if you have a website.
Love and light
