    What crystals do you own?

    Post  EmbodiedSoul on Fri Aug 28, 2015 11:52 am

    I thought this would be a good idea to post.

    I own Selenite (wand), Amethyst (natural and tumbled), Black Tourmaline (natural and tumbled), Black Obsidian (tumbled), Lepidolite (tumbled), Clear Quartz (natural and tumbled), Rose Quartz (natural and tumbled), Tiger's Eye (tumbled), Peridot (natural and tumbled), Bloodstone (tumbled), Sodalite (tumbled), Hematite (tumbled), Lapis Lazuli (pendant), Red Jasper (tumbled), Chiastolite (tumbled), Angelite (natural), Ametrine (Tumbled) and a Citrine point (natural). Other crystals I cannot remember.

    I also don't have a favourite one, I like most of them.

    That is an interesting mix. How did you choose them? All at once or gradually?  And have you ever looked at Malachite?

    Mostly gradual, I chose them for the benefits when I got older, but Amethyst and Red Jasper not at first since I just liked collecting crystals as a kid because they appealed to me as their beautiful appearance shined. I didn't know much about their healing benefits and spiritual effects then, other than the lovely colours.

    Using colour as a guide to which crystal is very valid and for some the best way to choose. 

    Do you do anything with the crystals?

    I'm afraid I am rather like the child mentioned and have an array of crystals with little to no knowledge of their properties. However, I am intuitive and I choose the crystals that draw me to them. Of course with scant knowledge I am not a crystal healer or anything, instead I use which ever crystal I feel drawn to, to meditate with, sometimes to sleep with, or to take out somewhere with me. It works for me, but I am fascinated by those that do have the knowledge of crystals and use them in healing.

    Which child?

    Why don't you learn then? Crystal healing is very interesting and rewarding, spending a little time to learn and then adding in your intuitive thoughts would make for a rounded experience :)

    Embodiedsoul said that as a kid he chose crystals because they shone, I was saying that that's a bit like what I do now.

    I don't really feel drawn to go any deeper with crystals. I'm happy to let other people be the experts in that respect. But I still enjoy using them and having them around in the way that I do.

    When I purchased mine, I felt drawn to a few of them, but also I was on search for certain traits, healing properties & the clerk had a hand in some of my choosing, which has been a no no. I should have had them labeled as I am just learning. The one's that stick out the most & which I am still very attracted to right now, Green Calcite ( natural - I had it made into a necklace), Chrysocolla (I'm not sure if it's also called Ocean Jasper?) - I'm really very drawn to this. I picked up some beautiful Tourquoise (it almost looks like chewed bubble gum) - I actually have been wearing a bit of Tourquoise with a tiny red stone as well for the past 13 years. I never really liked Tourquoise, but this year I've been very drawn to it. I also have felt very drawn to purple calcite. & again, I've never really cared for the color purple, & yet I've been drawn to purple's this year - not just in crystals.. & citrine

    I bought a few books to help me out, & to learn.

    Too many to count. Haha. But the good news is that I'm letting go of some soon, because they are just standing there picking up dust.

    I hope it's ok to necro an old topic, I saw "what crystals do you own" and got excited. I have quartz and amethyst and agate, and...lol, that's comical if you knew me. My basement's roughly the size of a medium bowling alley, I give guided tours to high schools. Now, granted, half of the basement is Native American artifacts. But I've been collecting minerals since childhood, and was a merchant for years, so let's just say I have my fair share of crystals.

    I've always been into crystals and stones and their properties, but I'm kinda bad at staying organized with things so I never really purchased them until recently. My boyfriend's friend's girlfriend works at a spiritual shop and he mentioned to me that I'd probably like the place she works at, so he took me there and I picked up a rough Amethyst point (I've always liked Amethyst and the piece I chose.. I put it back after looking at it and I dug around later on because I felt like I NEEDED to have that specific piece), and a small tumbled Rose Quartz and a small rough Amethyst piece to put into stone cages so I can wear them. I also picked up a small 4" Selenite wand (mainly for cleansing my space, myself, and my crystals), 3 pieces of Black Tourmaline (for protection), a decent sized chunk of raw crystal quartz and I got a 'Love and Happiness' set which contained a chunk of rough crystal quartz, rose quartz, and amethyst.

    I've always been drawn to Amethyst and Rose Quartz for reasons much deeper than color or looks. I've been trying to learn more about different stones and their purposes, but I think what I've obtained now is a decent start.

    Blessed be!

    Hello

    I have a lot of them the most recent find was a large raw amethyst cluster.  We found it at a flea market and every time I looked at it the colour was getting less in it. Finally I just had to have it.  Its coming back in its colour again.

    Favorite one is a smokey quarts that is a generator put in a decorative carved ravens head.  I got it in England as it called to me from a shop window that I so had no interest in as honestly it looked like it was a "tourist trap" from the decorations and look of the store front.  Yin and Yang shop but it turned out that this piece had just been unpacked and put in the window about an hour before.  It came from Sadona Arizona in the US went to the UK only to come home to Canada.  Cost a small fortune 800 pounds but I had to have it.

    I have a strong connection to crystals that are not always the norm, Hematite is a favorite, Rhodonite, now I have on a skull amethyst pendent. 

    When picking a crystal in person I find is best so that they can call to you.  I am not a fan of on line shopping for them. 

    One's that I do not resonate with are Jet, and Petrified w00d. Rose Quartz is not a favorite of mine.
