The Top 10 Healing Stones, And How To Use Them


For thousands of years, healing crystals have been prized by nearly every culture in the world.

For a long time, it was only the royalty that was allowed to partake in their benefits; but with the advent of technology in the modern age, just about anyone can have these powerful gemstones in their life. Ancient cultures always believed each stone holds unique mineral formations, and as a result, unique powers. Some crystals are great for purifying the air. Others are ideal for keeping a grounded, loving home. Still, others help to clear the mind, and so on.

So which one is right for you? Everything depends on what your needs are.

How to Use Healing Crystals

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running
    off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting
    issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let
    you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you
    get the issue solved soon. Thanks
