As far as healing crystals go, there are endless possibilities for incorporating them into your life. The best way to keep a crystal’s energy close is by wearing it in jewelry. This allows its healing properties to flow freely and immerse themselves into your auric field, at the same time creating a bond between yourself and the stone, making its effects personal to you. Most crystals can be worn anywhere on the body, but certain stones will have a greater effect depending where it’s placed. We can narrow down healing crystal in jewelry to a few types based on the area you are needing to heal. These crystals are interchangeable, but let’s take a look at a few examples of which healing crystal should be worn in which type of jewelry.
When crystals are worn as earrings, their healing properties affect areas closer to the head and neck. For these purposes it’s best to choose crystals that pertain to the upper chakras, such as the Crown, Third Eye, and Throat.
Amethyst affects crown and third eye chakras. Wearing amethyst earrings will bring balance to these upper energy centers to calm the mind, enhance creativity, and promote intuition, while helping you to tap into your natural psychic abilities.
Clear Quartz is known to align all the chakras, but pertains mainly to the crown. Clear quartz earrings will help to expand the higher consciousness and form a deeper connection with your spiritual self. This particular healing crystal in jewelry also unblocks all energy centers to purify and cleanse the aura.
Turquoise best relates to the throat chakra, the energy center responsible for communication and self-expression. Wearing turquoise earrings will unblock this chakra and help you to tap into your inner truth, allowing you to be your most authentic self while expressing your thoughts with compassion and understanding.
When healing crystals are worn as necklaces, they affect the upper and middle areas of the body. If you’re looking for healing crystals in necklaces, it’s best to choose one that relates to the throat, heart, or solar plexus chakra.
Lapis Lazuli is a powerful protection stone that relates best to the throat chakra. It aids in communication and self-expression, much like turquoise. Wearing a lapis lazuli necklace will not only provide psychic protection, but it will also provide confidence in speaking your truth.
Rose Quartz is the stone of universal love, and thus is related to the heart chakra. It opens up this energy to be more receptive and giving of love on all levels. Wearing a rose quartz necklace will promote harmony and balance in every relationship, whether familial, platonic, or romantic. It also instills self-love.
Labradorite, as a stone of transformation and change, provides insight to the self. It also provides protection against electromagnetic radiation and is related to the heart chakra. A labradorite necklace is the perfect choice for versatility in healing with crystals.
Healing crystals are not often made into anklets, but when they are, their healing properties benefit the lower chakras, mainly the root and sacral. Ancient lore says that wearing chains around your ankles keeps you grounded, so it’s best to choose stones with grounding properties.
Obsidian is a type of volcanic glass most popular for its protective and grounding energies. Black obsidian absorbs negativity and provides protection, while Golden obsidian brings focus and good fortune. Both are related to the base chakra and provide a spiritual foundation in which to grow your roots. Carry protection and prosperity in your travels.
Citrine is a powerful energetic stone that instills the energy of the sun. It unblocks and revitalizes the sacral chakra to promote healthy energetic flow. Wearing a citrine anklet puts joy in every step and helps you to walk with confidence.
