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.
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.
“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.
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:
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. 🙂
