With so many crystals available, in fact hundreds, it is a great idea to have specific ones on hand that cover the majority of situations.
Many people opt to go for a chakra set, or are familiar with the chakra sets, but let us extend beyond the main chakras. The chakra sets (usually a pack of 7) consist of a stone of a specific colour that corresponds to the colour associated to each chakra. Something like a clear quartz for the crown, an amethyst for the third eye, a blue crystal such as blue lace agate for the throat, rose quartz or something green for the heart, citrine or something yellow for the solar plexus, and an orange calcite or carnelian for the sacral and maybe jasper or a agate for the root chakra. These vary from pack to pack, but generally it is the frequency of the colour that matches the chakra.
Let me suggest the most important stones to have in a healing kit and I will then explain what they are about. To begin creating you healing kit start with Clear Quartz, Kyanite, Selenite, Seraphinite, Sugilite, Smoky Quartz, Rhodochrosite, Larimar, Lepidolite and Calcite.
The availability varies as does the price, but Crystal and Candles has a great range, and if currently out of stock, I know we can get any of these particular crystals in.
Clear Quartz because it is the most versatile, it is pure white light containing all the other colours within it. Its nature is to store and amplify energy, so you can programme it to work with your intent (in this case, healing).
Kyanite accesses your etheric bodies, aligning them without you having do anything except keeping it close by, taking you from being everywhere to centred. It effortlessly snaps all of your aspects into place so you can swiftly integrate and get back to your life.
Selenite is like a column of white light that flows through your energetic bodies in both directions. It works right down to the cellular level, releasing blocks within your aura allowing the body to heal, plus placing other stones on it recharges them.
Seraphinite is great for purifying your body, meridians and aura. It regenerates cells and brings with it pure healing energy that flood your system with light. It helps the body assimilate vitamins. Energetically it helps you see where you are at, providing insight as to how to bring about change.
Sugilite increases healing energies bringing balance, by cleansing, strengthening and extending the aura. A great stone for relieving headaches and pain, especially Sugilite with Manganese in it.
Smoky Quartz releases blocks and tension by dissolving negative energies while highlighting the reason they came about. When working with the higher frequencies within the body using Smoky Quartz brings balance on all levels and grounds the energy.
Rhodochrosite helps us create new realities for ourselves from a balanced and loving place. It purifies, rejuvenates and revitalizes. With its loving energy forming the basis of our actions, it cleanses us, assisting to prevent sickness.
Larimar a gentle, yet powerful cleansing stone that supports us as we release and make changes. It works at a cellular level so the healing energies can take hold through all our energetic bodies.
Lepidolite helps us become aware of our vibration or energy. It relieves stress and assists us through times of change by restructuring old patterns. It balances our emotions, relaxing and releasing tension which allows us to flow again so healing energies flow.
Iceland Spar Calcite magnifies its energy, allowing our chakras to be purified and fully functional. It resonates at a frequency of our Divine perfection and sends this into our energetic bodies for us to harmonise with.
Of course there are others… I would suggest 25 is a good number for variety and the chance to use multiple stones on chakras.
The other stones I would add to this list would be:
Pyrite, Black Tourmaline, Garnet, Hematite, Obsidian, Sunstone, Tigers Eye, Amber, Rutilated Quartz, Rose Quartz, Mangano Calcite, Ruby in Fuchsite, Malachite, Peridot, Chrysocolla, Tourmaline, Aquamarine, Celestite, Turquoise, Lapis lazuli, Labradorite, Tanzanite, Fluorite, Charoite and Apophyllite.
