Think that crystals are *just* pretty rocks? Think again!
The love of crystals is not just for witches, yogis, geologists and spiritual gurus. Since the beginning of Time, humans have had an ongoing fascination with shiny & colorful rocks. Yes, they are pretty- but they are so much more than that. Today, I want to share a few of the many wonderful, dare I say magickal, properties associated with 3 of the most popular gemstones: Amethyst, Clear Quartz, and Rose Quartz.
If you’re just starting out in your energy practice, these 3 crystals make excellent tools that you can begin working with right away.
For a solid metaphysical reference, I like “The Book of Stones: Who They Are and What They Teach” by Robert Simmons, Naisha Ahsian, and Hazel Raven.

Amethyst is simply beautiful and develops various shades of purple as it grows. Ranging from delicate lavender to deep violet, this variety of quartz gets its gorgeous color from small amounts of irradiated iron, or other impurities that change the color of this otherwise clear mineral. For me, I meditate with amethyst whenever I am preparing to work with a client for an energy reading. I find it helps me to connect spiritually with the client and their guides while still maintaining an energetic barrier of protection for myself as the channel.
- Magickal Correspondences: Divine connection, spiritual protection, purification, releasing addictions.
Clear Quartz is a favorite of mine because it serves so many purposes in my magick practice. Whether I’m using a long point to focus energy on something specific, or pairing it with another stone to amplify that crystal’s properties, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with clear quartz as an all-purpose energy tool. And, if you’re not into the witchy stuff, it’s still just a really pretty rock to decorate your bookshelf or desk.
- Magickal Correspondences: Programmable, amplifies intention, magnifies ambient energies, clearing, cleansing, memory enhancement, awareness, focus & clarity.

Ah, Rose Quartz, the stone of Ultimate Love! This is in my opinion a perfect stone for anyone who is ready to welcome more Love into their life: Love for the Self, Love for one another, Love for all beings that make up our magnificent universe. It is simply not possible to have too much Love, but it’s evident that a lack of Love causes tremendous suffering. For me, Rose Quartz has been a pivotal crystal in my own healing journey to Whole-Self Love.
- Magickal Correspondences: Love, gentleness, emotional healing, release of stress, Divine Unity.
