Recently I was asked an excellent crystal healing question:
If you could only have 5 healing crystals in your toolbox, which would you choose?
Five?! Whatchya trying to do to a girl?
I’m trying to turn out some serious Crystal Junkies over here! 5. Pfffft~!
Heeee! All kidding aside…you do want to build up your crystal collection slowly & purposefully & we don’t want you breaking the bank while doing it. So, I’ll be good & stick to 5. 😉
I usually like to choose crystals/stones that are easy to find & inexpensive. We have so many to choose from so why not make it easy?
1. Green Aventurine
For physical healing, vitality & good health, green aventurine is my go-to stone. Its also a heart chakra stone & a must have for most ailments. These pictured here are on the light side…aventurine comes in many shades…can be dark, light to in between.
2. Apache Tears
For times of grief, apache tears are good emotional supports & healers. A type of black obsidian, apache tears are beat-up looking & usually not smooth (as black obsidian is) due to their violent creation (being thrown in volcanic eruptions). Grief can follow divorce, a break up of any relationship or death of a loved one. The soul needs to heal, as may the body. Apache tears can help with that.[caption id="attachment_5089" align="aligncenter" width="458"] Here I’m holding an apache tear that I was putting into a grief mojo bag.[/caption]
3. Pink Calcite
From Peru, pink calcite can be either opaque or transparent & is often confused with rose quartz. Its a great stone to have around for over-all health & emotional well-being. Its also great for physical tissue repair & being a heart chakra stone, it works very well with any heart issues.[caption id="attachment_5092" align="aligncenter" width="395"] Photo by my man (he’s not really “MY” man…but he’s da Crystal-Photo-Taking-Man…ya know?)

4. Black Tourmaline
Since so many health issues point back to being ungrounded, I feel its ULTRA-important to have the Big Daddy of grounding in the house: black tourmaline. This stone has the unique ability to transmute energy & help any being to ground & connect back to Mother Earth, alleviating so many health issues. Make sure if nothing else, you have some of this around.
Lastly, amber (technically not a crystal or stone due to its organic nature) this is a great stone for good emotional hygiene. It chases out depression & melancholy with it’s sun-shiney rays. Often sold as “amber”, copal is not technically the fossilized, hardened resin that is known as amber, but rather an immature recent resin/amber. Copal is the same thing, just not as old and the names are often used interchangeably. Even so, copal can still be very old dating back to the Tertiary period, 65-2.5 million years ago! The commercial value of amber is related to its scarcity, age, inclusions of extinct species & durability. True fossil amber is more valuable than copal & very, very expensive in comparison. We don’t need the super-amber version for our purposes here as both copal & amber have the same healing properties. 🙂
Amber/copal is a wonderful healer, stimulates metabolism, physical energy & energy flow or chi within the body’s energy meridians. Good stuffs!
