Some Of My Favorite Healing Crystals & How I Use Them

My first ever piece of crystal jewelry was a clear quartz pendant I bought from a flea market during a family vacation in Singapore when I was fifteen. Regardless of how cheap and witchy it looked, I absolutely loved it. I really believed that it protected me from negative energy and it almost made me feel like I had super powers, like how the three sisters did in the TV show Charmed.

After so many years, I am still working on creating my crystals collection. But I do have a few absolute favorite healing crystals that I keep close to me. I use them for their metaphysical properties and their natural beauty.
