Citrine is a great crystal to pick up if you’re feeling down or need to get out of a creative roadblock. It’s uplifting and helps to magnify creative energies.

3) Rose Quartz

Rose quartz has a very calm and gentle energy. It truly is the stone of love — of all kinds. If you’re feeling the need to feel loved or if they are wanting to project compassion towards another person, rose quartz is the way to go.

4) Green Aventurine

Green Aventurine is a wonderful healing stone because of its vitality. Whether it’s friendships, health, growth, or confidence — this is for you.

5) Amethyst

Probably one of the oldest used stones in history, Amethyst is excellent for protection and purification. It enhances intuition and helps with the release of addictions, especially mental addictions. It’s a wonderful stone and great to always have around.

Here are 2 steps to find the right crystals for you!

1) Follow the Senses

We have the physical senses and the intuitive senses. Physical senses include sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste. The intuitive sense comes from a deeper level, and can only be accessed by calming the mind. Use all of these to pick the perfect stone.

2) Wait for a Feeling

Sometimes a crystal or gemstone will just stand out to a person. If a stone keeps on grabbing your attention, it might be the right one. Also, some stones will vibrate or give off a form of energy when held by the right person. Be open and observant to this.
