Which Crystal is the Most Powerful?

most powerful crystal

 Today, I want to address a question that I get often, which is,

“Which crystals are the most powerful to work with?”

It’s a question, at first… I used to kind of say,

“Well, that all depends,”

but now I’ve actually come across some info, done some research + some work on my own… and I’ve changed my answer:

Yes, I have some crystals, or A CRYSTAL, that I do feel is the MOST powerful.

Rather recently, I did a couple of blog posts on some scientific properties of crystals… and they were pretty popular posts. It seemed that people were really interested in finding out more about these properties, and those specific properties are:

All 3 of these are properties that have to do with electricity or voltage in some form or another and I found that certain crystals have two or more of these properties. I also noted that seemed to correspond to how powerful I’ve seen these crystals to be in people’s lives as catalysts for information.

Let’s just do a quick re-cap. I’m not going to dive deep into these things because you can jump over here and over to this blog post where I really detail it out for you.

Piezoelectricity

Piezoelectricity refers to a crystal’s ability to produce voltage when pressurized.

Certain crystals will actually produce a voltage when their crystal lattice is under pressure of any sort and that’s why we can use them in different ways in technology.

Some crystals that are known to do this are quartz, topaz + any type of tourmaline.

When I say “quartz”, I mean all types of quartz—not just clear quartz; so that includes amethyst, agate, citrine, rose quartz, Auralite 23, what have you.

Pyroelectricity

“Pyro” means fire, so it has to do with temperature. Specifically, it’s the ability of a crystal to produce voltage when heated or cooled. And quartz, again, has the ability to do this, as does tourmaline…. any kind of tourmaline. Even, indicolite, which is a teal blue or blue tourmaline—really beautiful.

(This piece shown below is a closeup of the indicolite I feature in my above video.)

There are other crystals that qualify, but there are reasons why I’m bringing those specific crystals up. 😉 We’ll get to that in a sec.

Triboluminescence

I demonstrated triboluminescence in a video in this blog post a little while back, which is the property of the crystal to actually be able to produce light when it’s struck.

And it doesn’t just produce light on the outside, like friction blowing out a spark, but internally, as well as externally; it produces this flash of light! So it’s not simply explained away as friction.

It’s actually a property that’s not well understood by science. They’re actually not yet able to fully explain why or how it’s happening.

Crystals that are able to express triboluminescence are: quartz, diamond, and fluorite.

So, Which Crystal is the Most Powerful Crystal?

The word “powerful” is a very subjective & relative term. Isn’t it?

But I think I “get” what people mean when they ask me that… and you probably do too.

I do feel that crystals that have the properties that I’ve discussed here are more powerful than crystals that don’t. And that just simply comes from my experience working with them, research that I’ve done and the experience of my 1000’s of students & graduates of my Certified Crystal Healer Course who’ve used them in their practices with clients. I’ve noted that many experience profound transformation in working with these crystals and… bonus they’re all crystals that are relatively easy to find.

If you’ll notice, quartz possesses all three of these properties I mentioned here:

  • piezoelectricity
  • pyroelectricity
  • triboluminescence.

It has other properties as well. In addition, it’s a silicate mineral, which happen to be the most abundant minerals on the Earth’s crust. (More than 90% of our planet’s crust is composed of silicate minerals.)

I feel like that’s no coincidence… that quartz, in all its many forms—rose quartz, amethyst, citrine, green aventurine, clear quartz— is so accessible to us; both plentiful & relatively low-cost.

All the jaspers all the agates—these are all quartz-based minerals that we can work with and probably the one mineral we work with most often, because again, it’s one of the most attractive & most abundantly found on our planet; easily accessible to us.

So, to finally answer the question:

In my opinion, quartz (any kind of quartz), is the “A” number one most powerful crystal, and then 2nd would be tourmaline, and then thirdly I’d place topaz.

I feel crystals that have these special properties are the most powerful ones because this allows the crystals to more easily tap into the body’s voltage and polarity. In my Certified Crystal Healer Course I teach more on the physics behind how/why it works.

Again, “what crystal is most powerful” can be up to personal interpretation… it’s a matter of opinion & experiences and it can be very subjective based on the work that you’ve done and other crystals or minerals that you’ve worked with that you found to be very powerful. Maybe malachite is the most powerful one for you? I’m not saying that your experience is wrong; I’m just giving my opinion on this subject here since I’m so often asked this question and I wanted a place to park my answer to refer people to.

I’d love to open up a discussion about this!  What’s the most powerful crystal for you? Please share in the comments below. I can’t wait to read your response. 🙂

Crystal Blessings,

  1. I am interested in crystals, but have NO experience. I’ve only used a quartz for helping me with chackras. Would love to learn more!

  2. Hi Brett, Herkimer Diamonds are definitely Quartz based. They are actually quartz found only in Herkimer New York, hence the name.

  3. My favorite and to me the most strongest crystals I have are my chevron amethyst and my Arkansas Quartz. My Arkansas Quartz is really uniquely formed which is why I think it’s so powerful. It’s like a little cave totally covered in small points, like porcupine needles, with a couple large generators jutting from it. 🙂 the inside is all points and druzy as well. I feel it amplifies whatever I do with it by x number of points. Love it!

  4. I have found that the clear quartz is most powerful for recharging myself and my clients and I tend to work with them more than others. From the beginning of my interaction with crystals I have been drawn to them. I feel their gentle electricity running through my entire body whenever I am near them. It feels so good.

  5. Thank you, so appreciate your time and Knowlage that you share with us all !
    I personally choose the high vibrations of Celestilite, moonstone and my most resent treasure is a large stunning Brandenberg I’m so grateful to of found !

  6. Yea, the term “most powerful” is certainly going to be viewed as a subjective term as Hibiscus said. But in my personal experience, when I think about crystals or stones that I’ve felt were powerful (oreven transformative), I have to say that moldovite (even though it’s a tektite) has had the most profound impact, also selenite and various colored adventurine also have a place here with me. Let me explain why I chose these. I’m going by 2 things, first is the fast and deeply powerful transformation that occurred with my spiritual ascension working with moldovite and second are the powerful energies I felt in my physical body when I would actually handle or hold any of the stones I mentioned – especially moldovite and selenite. This is my interpretation of what I felt were very powerful, life-changing experiences due to these particular crystals/stones. Moldovite gave me or helped me to see abilities I didn’t even know I had! That’s pretty powerful!
    What a great topic!

    1. Selenite tower lamps!! I have 4 of them and they are just beautiful and so very calming. They instantly get me to an alpha state to start mindfullness meditation I have to do everyday for chronic pain. I love them.

  7. I’m an old student and agree with you on your choice of “most powerful” crystals. But I’ve found it’s more than that. The crystals of themselves are powerful, and like other carbon (that’s an element that forms crystals…) life forms it forms electrical and magnetic fields and memory. We can form relationships with them through entanglement blah, blah, blah – my hobbies incl. physics, geology, neuroscience….I’m a geek. So I’ve found that it’s not just that they are powerful or that I am powerful but that when we develop relationships with them we can work together and experience together despite having very different perceptions – just like we can with plants and other animals. That being said, one person may find that a citrine cluster is like the best friend they’ve been searching for or that fluorine does great things for them etc. Our ancestors knew the how of it and now that our science and tech. are better we know the why and more of the how too. My favorite pocket pals are a herkimer diamond, a piece of striated agate with a transparent crystal inclusion, a piece of tourmilated quartz and a tektite. Last but not least is a 25 lb. mint green single crystal (rhombus) of calcite.

  8. Agreed on all the above and Hibiscus’ choices. I find for me personally Smoky Quartz to be the most powerful. I think that each person vibrates at a unique frequency/has their own energy signature, which corresponds with a certain crystal. Mine happens to be Smoky Quartz. I feel a fizzy buzz through my body when holding/working with it, that I don’t feel as strongly with other crystals, except maybe moonstone.

  9. I love all quartz. They feel amazing. Thank you for the science in the blog. I can’t wait to learn more in your class in Sept!

  10. I totally agree with you on this one, Hibiscus, quartz is my number one favorite because it is simply so powerful and tourmaline is a close second. I LOVE hearing the science behind the vibes! Thank you <3

  11. Hi thanks to all for sharing. I had fun reading about it. I’m alway wear my necklace that I use for support of clear mind and spirit and support me in my addiction. Better then pills. Lol. But the ones that I love are Danburite, Labrodite, Apophylite, Tourmaline, Moldavite, Herkimer diamonds, with support of pearls.

  12. As much as I agree, and frequently use the quartzes, I recently discovered a stone that gives me an “oh wow” feeling when I hold it: prehnite. (Someday I can afford some moldavite bigger than an inch long. When that happens, I’ll invest.) I just relate really well to prehnite for some reason (as well as fluorite) and have been hanging on to a black obsidian Goddess-figure pendant for a while. I finally got some prehnite beads to give her a proper setting.

    Nobody’s mentioned labradorite yet! That surprises me. It takes some work to find the one with the most pleasing flash, but it has a lot of press about being magickal.

  13. Quartz in all its various forms and manifestations is my primary choice for healing applications. I find it to be powerfully transformational on its own. Additionally, in my experience, Quartz enhances the healing qualities of most other crystals when used in combination. To me, it is the ultimate healing ally. I agree that its abundance, accessibility and availability on our Earth’s crust are no accident, but simply reminders that all we need is provided for us in our human quest for healthful, connected, and inspired living. Namaste.
