I am starting this topic due to a great interest in the properties of crystal energy and their use in raising our vibrational frequency, bringing more Light and energy into this world and as a healing tool. I will also include instructions on how to clean and remove negative energy from them along with links to other sites. At the bottom of this topic you will find pictures and information on many types of crystals.
Here are twogreat sites that arefull of information on many types of crystals with their pictures and their abilities to help you.
That Crystal Guide

Here is a link to the most excellent book on crystals "The Book of Stones" by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian. These links will allow you to purchase it on line and the first link will allow you to see inside the book for a few short pages.
When purchasing crystals be sure to purchase them from a reputable dealer as there are many fraudsters online especially from China. I am including a link to a site that I feel offers good value and the genuine product.
If you have any questions or wish to add to this discussion with more information please contact me. All information and questions are very welcome as they promote discussion and raise the level of awareness.
By performing the process of purification we free crystals from the energy they have gathered in the past. Cleaning crystals is much more than simply cleaning the dust on their outer surface. It is primarily an act of removing the "inner dust" or removing the discordant energies from within the crystals. In technical sense, crystals can be used, and are indeed used to record and store useful information, but if we were to translate this to more spiritual language it means that crystals are also capable of accidentally absorbing vibrations from the environment. The catch is that crystals cannot distinguish good from bad vibrations - they can only pick up various kinds of energies they are put in contact with. From the point of view of the Universal love, crystals represent shining love. All vibrations will one day ascend and will be transformed into Divine ones, and thus all vibrations can be considered good.
Purification of precious and semi-precious stones is carried out with help of the four elements: water, fire, earth and air.
The first step in the process of tuning crystals' energy with the energies of our own microcosm is cleaning them from all kinds of energies that they once accumulated. If you have been working with your crystals for some time, using them for healing or removing emotional pain, or if you wish to program them with new programs, it is necessary to run the process of purification again. There are several techniques for that purpose, choose the one that you find best for your crystals.
1. One of the methods to clean your newly bought crystals is to classify them according to their type, and soak them in salty water for three days. Afterwards, rinse them thoroughly and put them to dry out in the Sun. Still better variation of this method is to use seawater.
2. Crystals can be quickly cleaned by keeping them under the flow of lukewarm water for three to five minutes. Beware: some crystals should not be put into water, especially soft stones like azurite, angelite, phenakite, boji stone, selenite and similar.
3. The least invasive method of cleaning crystals would be exposing them to incense burning smoke. The incense of herbal origin, like cedar, salvia, juniper, or pine tree works the best. Put the incense stick bellow your crystal, allowing for a better exposure of your crystal to the smoke. This is an excellent way of purifying yourself and your environment.
4. Purification of crystals can be successfully performed if we use candle flame and pass the crystal through the flame several times.
5. Here is another possibility: crystals can be cleaned by using essential oils. Soak them in a container filled with distilled water in which a few drops of essential oil have been added. The juniper essential oil is especially suitable due to its capability of releasing the crystals from the accumulated negative energies. For cleaning stones used in emotional healing, lavender oil is the best choice, since it has soothing and balancing features.
6. Lemon is equally good for cleaning crystals, and apart from its purifying capabilities it can help remove fat from the crystals' surface.
7. One of the means of cleaning crystals is to bury them in the earth. This method should not be used when there is iron present in the composition of the crystal as a dominant element, e.g., hematite and tiger iron. Especially unrefined energies can be taken out of the crystal in this way. It can be a sort of a rebirth for the particular crystal to be put back in the embrace of the earth - the environment which it has been taken from originally.
There are crystals that need no cleaning: kianite, azulite, diamond, herkimer, phenakite and apophilite - they take care of themselves alone. Rock crystal and carnelian can purify other crystals, but then they need cleaning themselves. Keep them under the flow of lukewarm water, or put them in salty water for some time. While performing purification your mental attitude that all the negative energies are leaving the stone that is being purified is very important.
You can clean crystals with visualization. For a successful visualization you will need a quiet place where nobody is going to disturb you. See to it that you are relaxed, with positive thoughts and feelings. Try to experience love, close your eyes and take your crystal in both hands. Visualize your crystal as it glows in white light, or in the colors of the rainbow. Feel the crystal as it releases the negative energies and starts to emit smooth, tender, worm, and balanced energy. Feel your crystal as it becomes clean and ready to be charged. If you use crystals for emotional healing, clean them after each session. If your crystals appear dull or cloudy, or if you feel a blunt feeling when you take them in your hand, most likely they would need cleaning, regardless of whether or not they have been used in any practical work. You should clean your crystals on a regular basis, but the time interval depends on the intensity of their use in practical applications. If your crystals only decorate your shelves, cleaning once a couple of months should be enough. Crystals that you use every day should be purified once a week. Crystals should be cleaned before programming, but once they are programmed, don't clean them unless they have accomplished the goal of their programming.
How to choose the right crystal for you
Precious and semi-precious stones - crystals - belong to the mineral kingdom. Crystals have always been fascinating to people, primarily due to their visual attraction, exquisite purity, interplay of colors and transparency. Crystals and stones in general have always been around us. Long before our appearance on planet Earth, crystals have had a presence here, helping Earth's development. Not only have crystals been absorbing the omnipresent cosmic love, but also they have been amplifying that love, and spreading their vibrations all around them - thus, outpouring their love and spirituality into the world. Amid the great number of crystals that are available, it might be difficult for you to choose the right crystal. Here are some important points that should be considered before making up your mind.
1. Carefully investigate the properties of various crystals in order to familiarize yourself with them. Choose some of the crystals that you think may help you and eventually make a list of favorite crystals.
2. You can choose your crystal considering the crystal's beauty, color or functionality. Later on, you may select your crystal according to the particular features that offer a solution to some problem you would like to address or in view of the characteristic traits you would like to acquire in the future.
3. You can select your crystal randomly and intuitively provided that you have trust in your own intuition. Some crystals may stick to your fingers; you can feel them energetically in some particular way. Other crystlas may simply bring joy to your heart and you can feel the thrill as you take them in your hands. All those cases indicate that you have indeed found the right crystal for yourself.
4. You can address some particular crystals on a mental level and establish conscious communication with them. Try to determine what kind of energy flows between you and your crystal. Is it warm and tender or cold and unrefined? Is this energy attractive or repulsive?
5. The size need not be a decisive factor in determining the right crystal for you since even small pieces can be extremely efficient. Have in mind that rough crystals in their natural shape and condition may not be as visually attractive, but nevertheless they can be as powerful and energetically strong as their faceted counterparts, and, needles to say, less expensive.
6. If you combine aesthetic and useful qualities, you can choose a necklace or any other type of jewelry that can at the same time improve your health or attract the quality that you wish to acquire. Crystals can protect you, help you get rich, attract love, increase creativity, expand your visualization and imagination, strengthen concentration, add to your mental abilities, deepen your intuition, revive your suppressed memories, help you heal yourself, and lead you into enlightenment.
7. Finally, remember that crystals are living beings. Crystals can be your friends, counselors and teachers.
Cleaning Gemstones - How to cleanse your stones
There are many methods in use today for cleaning gemstones and crystals in order to increase the effects of their metaphysical energies.
Stones are believed to have an extensive memory, remembering where they've been, who they've touched, and all forces and energies that have surrounded them. A stone can pass onto others any energy that it has stored within it. Periodically, stones need to be cleansed of any unwanted energies that they may have collected from you, from others, or from the environment.
For instance, healers take care to clean their healing stones after each use because the stones might take pain (both physical and emotional) into themselves and pass it onto others if they have not been cleansed of those energies between uses. If a stone has absorbed negative energies, it may not work well for whatever purpose it has been programmed. (Read about programming gemstones here.)
When should a stone be cleansed?
- As soon as it's purchased.
- Before it's programmed.
- After each use.
- When you feel it has become drained or dull.
How often should a stone be cleansed?
- Regularly used stones, such as those worn or carried, should be purified daily.
- Healing stones, massage wands and pendulums should be purified after each use.
- Altar stones and environmental healing stones should be cleansed monthly.
How long does it take to cleanse a stone?
The time needed varies depending upon how drained the stone is and which method is used. The durations mentioned below are minimums based on moderately drained stones. Heavily drained stones will take more time and mildly drained stones will take less. Newly acquired stones and stones to be programmed will take the greatest length of time. Exactly how long a cleansing takes is up to you. Listen to your intuition and it will tell you.
How is a stone cleansed?
There are many ways to cleanse a stone. Which method you choose should be based upon the type of stone, how much time you have, and what tools are readily available to you. Once again, let your intuition be your guide.
Natural forces, such as the elements of nature (fire, water, earth, and air), the sun, the moon, and plants, are very effective in cleansing stones of negative energies. Stones respond to the intentions of their users, so it is important that while you are actively cleansing your stone, no matter which method you use, you hold in your mind the intention of carrying away unwanted energies to a place where they can do no harm, and your desire to re-energize the stone with positive energies.
Methods for cleansing stones:
- Fire - carefully pass the stone through the flame of a candle several times until you intuitively feel it has been cleared. The fire will burn away any negative energy. (Always use care when dealing with fire to ensure safety for yourself and environment).
- Smudging - carefully pass the stone through the smoke of a white sage smudge stick several times until you intuitively feel it has been cleared. Read more about smudging gemstones here....
Water - rinse the stone in moving water. This can be done in one of three ways:
- by holding the stone in a river or brook (placing it into a mesh bag will make it easier to hold onto) for several minutes,
- by leaving it out in the rain for several hours,
- by holding it under the faucet for several minutes.
DO NOT USE WATER on soft stones such as angelite, some calcites, howlite, aragonite, azurite, dolomite, malachite, selenite, sulphur, etc. as it may dissolve the stone to a greater or lesser degree.
- Earth - bury the stone in the ground for one full day, placing a marker over it so as to be able to find it later, or bury the stone in a pot of ground soil. (Do not use potting soil as it has been treated.) The soil will absorb negative energy, disperse it, and transmute it into positive energy. Stones feel very comfortable in the earth as it is where they formed and grew.
- Air - smudge the stone on all sides with a sage smudge stick, or with dried sage or cedar, or pass it through the smoke of sandalwood or sage incense. Sage is a very effective cleanser, neutralizing negative energy and transmuting it into positive energy.
- Sea salt - the most common method of cleansing stones is with water and sea salt. You can do this by placing the stone in a mesh bag and rinsing it in the ocean for several minutes, or by soaking the stone for several hours in a glass of water with a pinch of sea salt. CAUTIONS: *Salt may damage the finish on some stones. * Water may damage soft or friable stones. *Placing a stone in dry sea salt (without the water) may damage its electromagnetic field.
- Light - place a stone in bright sunlight, either outside or on a windowsill, for at least an hour. NOTE: solar energy may be too violent for some stones, having been formed within the Earth devoid of any light. CAUTION: over time, sunlight may fade the color of some stones. An alternate, and gentler, method is to place the stone in moonlight for at least one night under a full moon, longer if the moon is not full.
- Sound - produce a tone using a bell, chime, or tuning fork. Repeat the sound until the stone's energies feel cleansed. A pure tone will reset a stone's vibration to one that cannot hold negative energy.
- Breath - hold the stone to your heart while inhaling. Then bring the stone to your mouth and exhale your breath onto it. Repeat several times, always keeping in mind your intention of cleansing the stone of all negative energies. Your breath (the Breath of Life), combined with your intention, is a powerful enough force to cleanse a stone of negative energy. Your intuition will tell you when the cleansing is complete.
- Visualization - visualize a column of pure white or golden light coming down and surrounding the stone. Imagine it cleansing and transmuting the stone's negative energies into positive ones. Visualization combined with intention is another force powerful enough to cleanse stones. Again, listen to your intuition.
- Plants - place the stone in a flower pot with one of your plants for several hours. Just as live plants purify the air; they can also purify stones as well, transmuting negative energy into positive energy. If you do not have a plant available, an alternate method is to bury the stone in a glass of dried sage or cedar for a full day. The herbs will absorb the negative energies. After use, burn the herbs, or bury them in the Earth, or discard them in a river or creek. Do not reuse them.
- Quartz cluster - place the stone on large clear quartz cluster or bag of crystal chips for at least one full day. Clear quartz is excellent for magnifying, focusing, and, in this case, transmuting energy.
- Pyramid - leave the stone under a glass pyramid for several days. The energy produced by a pyramid has the ability to neutralize any negative energy that is placed within it.
Cleansing can be done using just one of these methods or a combination of them, such as the four elements, or light and quartz, or plants and breath, or smudging and visualization and sound, just to name a few of many possibilities. Combinations typically include using anywhere from two to five different methods.
All cleansing methods are compatible with each other; so use whatever combination feels right for you and your stone. Using a combination of methods is especially good for cleansing new stones, clearing stones for programming, and cleansing and recharging heavily drained stones. Combinations cleanse the stones more effectively and sometimes more quickly.

Angelite is formed from crushed celestite after thousands of years. Angelite is an balancing agent, polarizing and aligning the physical body with the ethereal body allowing for greater communication at that level including connecting to spirit guides, and forms of the higher self like the Buddha within or ascended masters. A sender and receiver, it assists spiritual journeys and astral travel. Dispelling anger, which is required for travel and communication at the higher levels. It is also used in the treatment of infectious diseases.
Angelite is a tremendous healing stone. It has the most wonderful way of imparting deep peace and inner tranquility. A stone par excellence for raising physchic awareness.Angelite - as the name suggests- is a very spiritual stone, it is believed to facilitate contact with the angel realm, assist with astral travel and enhance telepathic communication. It is a stone full of compassion, gentleness and deep peace. On a physical level, angelite is good for aiding the treatment of stomach ulcers, sunburn, repairing tissues and blood vessels, balancing body fluids and as an aid for weight loss. It is particularly good for the throat and balances the thyroid.
Amethyst crystals are some the most popular crystals available, and this attraction may relate to the fact that they embody the energy of the violet flame.Having a piece in the bedroom will promote restful sleep and peaceful dreaming.Any person may benefit by having this stone close by, as it is also a highly protective crystal. Amethyst crystals are potent stones to aid healing and they bring intense spiritual growth Amethyst can give one the feeling that you are surrounded bya bubble of Light energy. If one is ill placing an amethyst in your room can help keep your healing space clear. Wearing amethyst maintains the space of your body and energy space in a state of well being. For spiritual protection Amethyst works especially well when combined with Moldavite. The spiritual connection provided by Amethyst can be enhanced by Azeztulite, Phenacite, Scolecite, and Natrolite.
For meditation it is the premier stone to use. More than any other crystal it will quieten the mind allowing you to more easily make contact with spirit.
You may use its power for healing on all levels, as it is one of the healing stones with a vibration that is highly useful to assist meditation, as it will calm the emotions.
This stone is also highly protective so is an excellent stone to keep on the body for psychic protection.
It is also the Stone of Transformation. I can't think of a better stone to symbolize the First Step, Sobriety and the 12 Step Program. Transformed means that we are not as we once were.
Wear it as a reminder that you are in a 12 Step program which is a Program of Spiritual Recovery, and that you are Spiritual beings having a human experience.
Amethyst is a stone of the mind. It helps to bring calmness and clarity where there is anxiety and confusion. Wear Amethyst if you want to get in touch with your intuition, your feelings, or your values. Amethyst helps one learn of all things spiritual, mystic and psychic. Especially aids sobriety; alcohol, food, sex, and other addictions. Eases compulsive/obsessive behavior (desire for food, tobacco, drugs, alcohol, etc.) Famous ancient detoxifier (especially helps with poisons, alcohol.)
Stress: It is very good for overworked, overstressed, or overwhelmed metal states because of it extreme calming mental effects. It is considered an extremely spiritual stone. In the Old Testament, it is written that Aaron, the Jewish High Priest, wore the amethyst in the center of his breastplate, and it was said to induce visions and revelations. Many people sleep with an Amethyst crystal under their pillow for this reason. The Catholic bishop still wears an Amethyst ring on the second finger of his right hand.
Addictions: Amethyst comes from a Greek word, amethusos, meaning not drunk. There is a ancient myth about Bacchus turning a young maiden to stone, and in remorse, he poured wine on the statue, staining it purple and creating amethyst. Goblets of Amethyst were said to prevent the drinker from being overwhelmed by the drinks spirit. Today those trying to overcome addictions, especially alcohol addiction, use the healing powers of Amethyst as an aid.
Protection: Amethyst is a crystal of protection, because it repels more than it attracts.
Spirituality: Amethyst fosters healing and selflessness, and is associated with increased nobility, spiritual awareness, meditation, balance, psychic abilities, inner peace, and positive transformation. Some say it should be called the Stone of Transformation. Known also as "Metamorphosis".
Although the Purple and lavender crystals are the most talked about, as they embody the energy of the violet flame, all colors of this quartz crystal are powerful healing stones.
Other violet flame stones including Purpurite, Tanzanite and Sugilite are also powerful for healing, and combine well with purple amethyst stones.
Amethyst crystals do not need to be purple to heal, and you will find slightly different healing outcomes for different colored stones.
Both the pinkish stones in this family, and the green stones have all the aspects of the violet stones, and the lovely green crystals known as Prasiolite, also resonate within the heart chakra.
Amegreen also carries this same heart based energy as does a recently discovered stone from Canada known as Auralite 23.
Amphobile (Angel) Quartz
Also known as Angel Quartz Amphobile has been noted by others that this stone is for 3rd eye and crown chakras, yet for me I found them most powerful when placed on the heart chakra as it created a connect that went both up and down connecting you with the Higher energies of the celestial bodies as well as those found within the earth. A stream of powerful, clean energy eminates from it and it effortlessly flows into your field, clearing and recalibrating it. It is quite heady and a meditative state is easily achieved as it opens your being to the Light of Source. This magical type of Quartz has the unique ability to move you to where your energy is held at its peak, to keep it there, clean and focused... but from the heart. It moves through layers of old stuff instantly and replaces them with your hearts desires as if they were here and now, in the physical. The love that pours through you transforms your view of the world you live in, opens you to share freely now that the energy moving through you is felt as it should be and you runderstand the truth that there is no limitations on the Love of Source. What the books say: They are a wonderful compliment to those who are beginning to work with the entities and energies of the Angelic Realms, and in fact seem to attract them, along with others of the same mind who are working with the ethereal realms. Amphibole Angel Quartz is said to ease communication with Spirit Guides and has been noted to give off vibrations of peace and security. It has been suggested that it is effective in balancing the energies of the three higher chakras. Angel Quartz received this name both for the angelic messages it seems to transmit, and for its angelic looking white appearance. Use to help communicate with your guardian Angel. Some suggest that you use it with other Angelic crystals like Angelite, Celestite, Seraphinite, Azeztulite, Phenacite, Angel Opal. Their special energy can transform anyone near them. Angel Quartz is said to also shield someone from the abrasiveness of others. This is especially helpful to those that have been emotionally or verbally abused.

It is interesting that the name for the stone is derived from an accident. Sometime during the 18th century, Venetian glass workers were preparing molten glass when copper filings accidentally fell into the batch producing a glass with sparkles. The name aventurine comes from the Italian "a ventura," which means"by chance". Aventurine has been used as a lucky talisman and is a popular stone for gamblers.
Aventurine is often referred to as the all-purpose healer. This means not only that it is considered by many to be good for physical disorders, but that it heals on all levels.

It helps to balance the emotions, and is one of the best stones to wear or carry during stressful periods. Use in crystal layouts on the solar plexus to relieve internalised stress. Aventurine purifies the mental, emotional and Etheric bodies. Bring emotional tranquility, serenity, stillness and peace. Aventurine is good for pain within the heart, a broken heart and all emotional issues to do with the heart. It is centring and provides well being. Aids in releasing anxiety and fear.

Since ancient times, because of the saltwater formation of Selenite and our own saltwater beginnings, we resonate with the essence of this crystal. This crystal has been present with us since we began to evolve. Can it be that our illumination into the light has been assisted with Selenite throughout our evolution and without its presence do we find ourselves out of balance?
The answer is found in the healing energy within this powerful crystal. Selenite is an element of creation. Intensifying the light frequency, the resurgence of Selenite enhances our consciousness. That we have returned to this energetic element at this time prepares us to intensify new seeds of consciousness being planted for the coming times. So there is little wonder that Selenite is considered sacred to light workers. This sacred element is extremely sensitive. Selenite is like liquid light. Its striations (fine parallel grooves and narrow bands) are the pathways for the illuminated substance of Spirit. Selenite resides on that thread of a threshold between pure white light and physical matter. It vibrates more on the spiritual level than on the physical.
Capable of displaying total transparency, Selenite's essence is that of which dreams and visions are made. Selenite builds the bridge through which the highest frequencies of light can be integrated with the most subtle levels of form. So sensitive is this element that Selenite will fracture or break around negative thoughts.
A healing property of Selenite, as Selenite is bonded with water in its primary makeup, is that it has a direct effect on the emotional body. But unlike stones that will soothe and calm the emotions like Smithsonite and Green Aventurine, Selenite has a unique purpose in activating that aspect of our nature that is our true spiritual feeling. These crystals are particularly effective in stabilizing the emotional body and bringing erratic emotions under calm control. Being water soluble Selenite will eventually dissolve if left in liquid. This important characteristic also endows Selenite with the power to melt away exaggerated emotions with the stabilizing light force of true feeling.
Selenite is a crystal and it has qualities associated that have been documented by many seers of energy in many books. A summary of that material is:
- Probably the most profound effect of the selenite is the ability to bring fifth dimensional light into the third dimensional matter.
- Selenite quickly opens, balances and activates any chakra and is especial good with the third eye, crown chakra, and the soul star chakra above the head. The intensity of energy delivered by selenite is greater for the upper chakras than almost any other crystal.

- Cut cords of dysfunctional energy from the etheric body.

- One might say that when selenite opens the inner eye, the spiritual world enters.
- Selenite magnifies what ever is placed on it by many times.
- Add positive intentions into the energy body.
- Selenite elevates the frequency of physical matter and lowers the frequency of light, Selenite knows how to delicately design a new substance through which spirit can be actualized in matter
- Selenite is the harbinger to the age of enlightenment as it heralds the approach of the marriage between spirit and matter.

It brings in the Christ consciousness and self realization energies which is the direction we are all going - to fully recognize the true self within the physical vehicle. This gem prompts the god/goddess to emerge and be fully seen in day to day life. Communing with the higher is much easier when using this gem. It helps to access the akashic records and with consistent use can help to hone and fine tune ones own channeling abilities. Honey Gold Tourmaline helps to positively manifest the ego and promote compassion. It eliminates ego conflicts and all the emotions tied to these conflicts while removing any other hindrances which are holding one back from reaching full potential. Selfishness and self- centeredness are diminished as a more universal view is established in the being.
