Crystals that DON’T work together

Hi Everyone!! I often get asked how to know if you are wearing too many crystals, if they cancel each other out and what are bad crystal combinations?! This blog post was born to address that and how to ensure you have more powerful crystal combinations.

Crystals that Don’t Work Together:

I believe that with the right intention all crystals can work together.

I also believe that there are some crystals that don’t work well if you are particularly emotional or sad. In this instance, I wouldn’t recommend the following crystals:

  • Malachite because it is a powerful crystal that is also known to amplify all kinds of energy so it can leave you feeling lower in the dumps. It is said to make the highs very high and the lows very low.
  • Clear quartz as it is an amplifier. You may find yourself feeling lower because it is amplifying your low energy.
  • Cooler colored, light blue stones because these crystals can bring energy down instead of energising. If you’re feeling down, the last thing you want is to feel more down.

This can differ for many people so it isn’t set in stone. Many people find that clear quartz boosts their energy and makes them happy even if they are feeling low. The same can be said for malachite as well as many other stones!

It’s important to take note of how your crystal make you feel and how they impact your mood! This can also extend to the crystals you wear or carry with you.

Powerful Crystal Combinations when Wearing Crystals:

If you are wearing too many for your energetic body, you will know. When you will feel off, uncomfortable, sluggish and that something is not working, then it is possible that you are wearing too many crystals.

I know it’s “on fleek” to nicely layer 6 crystal necklaces around your neck or carry that many around with you. I’ve been there too! When you do this, sometimes you can feel as if you’re carrying bricks around and that can be a bad crystal combination. Take note and you can easily change this by wearing a few less crystals to see which are effecting you negatively.

You can definitely wear or carry powerful crystal combinations, but it doesn’t mean you need to have a huge amount of them.

Powerful Crystal Combinations

Working out Powerful Crystal Combinations:

Something important to take into consideration with your crystals is as HibiscusMoon says: “You’ve got to ask yourself what are you trying to achieve here?

Her example is fantastic: Carnelian boosts energy whereas Blue Lace Agate calms energy down so they would cancel each other out because it sends a confused signal out into the Universe, i.e. you don’t know if you want to boost or calm the energy.

The above crystal combination is pointless unless you have a specific intention behind the combination, e.g. carnelian to boost creative energy and blue lace agate to promote better communication. That’s why intention is very important for powerful crystal combinations.

General Guideline for Energizing and Calming Crystals:

When you are working out what you want to achieve with your crystal/s, it can be helpful to know whether your crystal has more of a energising or calming energy. It can get a little tricky, but there is a general guideline that you can follow when it comes to the colors:

  • Warmer colors like red, orange as well as yellow boost and energise. They are motivating colors. These sorts of color shades want to accelerate as well as make you want to move, get going and light the fire.
  • Green will balance because it’s in between warm and cool. It can also be relatively soothing.
  • Cooler colors like light blue, indigo and violet will be more calming and soothing. These shades of colors call for peace and slowing down.

General Guidelines to Energize or Balance the Chakras:

Colors can also complement your chakras. This is helpful if you want to put together a powerful crystal combination that focuses on specific chakras.

Not every person will to need to energise their chakras and sometimes our chakra is chaotic so it’s more beneficial to cool down that excess energy.

If you want to energise your chakras, here is a general guideline (which we all know):

  • Red stones for the root chakra.
  • Orange stones for the sacral chakra.
  • Yellow stones for the solar plexus chakra.
  • Green stones for the heart chakra.
  • Light blue stones for the throat chakra.
  • Indigo stones for the third eye chakra.
  • Purple stones for the crown chakra.

If you wanted to calm energy and provide more balance because it was too active, here’s a general guideline:

  • Green stones for the root chakra like green aventurine.
  • Light blue stones for the sacral chakra like blue lace agate.
  • Purple stones for the solar plexus like amethyst.
  • Red stones for the heart chakra like red jasper. I also feel that pink stones like rose quartz will calm the energy.
  • Orange stones for the throat chakra like sunstone.
  • Yellow or orange stones for the third eye chakra like carnelian or citrine. Dare I say that heat treated citrine would work well for this in my opinion.
  • Yellow for the crown chakra like citrine.

In conclusion, intention plays a big part when it comes to crystals. Being more familiar with energising or calming energy, could help you form your intention and work on combinations for your chakras if desired. Lastly, you don’t need to use, carry or wear a numerous amount of crystals for it to be a good, powerful combination.

To complement crystal combinations, if you want to learn more about intentions and how to tailor that with crystals you want to combine, read this post: Crystal Combinations 2.0 and Our Intentions

Next week, I’ll be talking about assessing your chakras to know whether it is balanced, has deficient energy or excess energy.

        1. Hi there Luz,

          You can but as always, think of what your goal is for the crystals.
          What do you want to achieve with them?
          Are they working toward one goal that each of them adds something toward that goal OR is each one doing their own thing for you.
          Crystals work when we use them with intention.

          1. Hello. Can I wear Black Tourmaline, Labradorite and Jadeite all together on my left wrist? My intention would be the following.

            Black Tourmaline – Grounding and Protection
            Labradorite – Shielding against Energy Vampires
            Jadeite – For Wealth and Prosperity. I heard that Jade can also protect you from Negative energy/loss so I’m after that as well.

            Thanks in advance!

  1. Hi I have just finished collecting my crystals. I am very interested in healing with crystals in combinations. I would like a crystal treatment. So where are you located?

  2. I’m glad I read your article. With regards to light blue stones such as Blue Lace Agate, I would experience a decrease in energy levels. How can I wear Blue Lace Agate, without depleting my energy during the day? Is Blue Lace Agate better for balancing the throat chakra or calming an overactive Throat Chakra?

    1. Hi Robert! Great question. Blue Lace Agate can be used to balance the Throat Chakra or calming an overactive Throat Chakra, depending on your intention. It isn’t traditionally used to calm an overactive Throat Chakra but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be used for that.
      Blue Lace Agate does have a slower vibe to it so if you’re a super active person, it can be helpful for slowing down BUT this won’t be helpful if you need the energy so it’s always good to use your crystals with intentions so as to not experience something you don’t really want (less energy).
      I hope this helps a bit 🙂

  3. Hi – will grounding/heavy stones slow or stop the vibration of other stones? Like if I have labradorite on a bracelet with black tourmaline or onyx, will the black stones weigh down and decrease the labradorites vibes? (the general intention here being shielding and protection)

    1. Hi Ali,

      Using grounding stones with other stones won’t necessarily slow the vibration UNLESS that was your intention. Generally grounding stones don’t cancel out other stones but it’s also important to take note of how your combination feels. If you feel it’s slowing YOU down, then you may want to change up the combination but if you are wearing the combination for shielding with the labradorite and protection with the black tourmaline or onyx then you shouldn’t have problems. Intention is always key, along with paying attention to how our crystals effect us personally.

  4. Hi,
    I’m preparing for a crucial exam of my life, which is highly competitive national level exam with chance for only two to be selected. I want to be one among the two. I’m a lady with low energy levels n easily distractable. Could you please suggest me the best crystals to wear to succeed in my exams. Thank you.

    1. Hi there, firstly good luck with your exam and should things not work out, remember that something better is on its way.
      I would recommend the following crystals for you: Red Jasper to boost energy, Carnelian for motivation and to pump you up, Golden Tiger Eye for focus and Rainbow Fluorite to help your brain retain the information.

    2. All these Q&A, I have received a box of crystals of colors that I have separated. I guess I have to learn the name of the crystals because I do have all the positive crystals I don’t have any Light blues at all I want to have my crystals to represent different intention and I’m just a beginner starting today but thank you for this group

      1. You’re welcome 🙂
        Never be scared to ask questions and research. Look at the colors of your stones, Google those colors and look if you can find yourself. There is so much information on the internet for us to learn from and enhance our journey.
        In addition, there are some great identification groups on Facebook dedicated to helping you identify your stones so check that out too!

  5. Hi! I have 3 bracelets on my left wrist (blue tigers eye with citrine, rutilated quartz with sunstone, and black onyx with brown tigers eye and a gold piece) at my right wrist there is a dark red garnet. On my left pocket i also have a rutilated clear quartz, brown agate, blue apatite, smokey citrine, amethyst and a lava stone. I also have a moldavite for my necklace. Are these okay to wear all together? I need this for my career, business, purpose in life and character. Sorry for the many questions, hoping you could help me with this. Thank you and more blessings to you!

    1. Hi there Macky,
      Yes those are find to wear together, however it is a lot of crystals so pay attention to how you are feeling. You may start getting drained easily, or get agitated, or spaced out. If you do so, try to limit the crystals to your main intentions (career, business and life purpose) to maybe 1-2 per intention.
      Crystals work great together but less is more when it comes to crystals and they work well together when they each have an intention (aka job to do) that either works independently (their own intention) or for the main intention adding to it.

  6. Hello . I have found the letters and your replies so helpful to my understanding of how crystals work. Thank you.
    I wonder if I may ask would you please advise my on crystals to motivate me to clearing my space, over the last 3 years I have become so drained that I’ve list interest in almost every thing in my life with the result of my home becoming extremely cluttered and though I really want to clear away or dispose of lots of items I feel What’s the point.. I would be so grateful if you could suggest something. Many thanks and blessings to you and your followers . Beryl

    1. Hi Beryl,
      My first suggestion is to get someone to help you with the clearing out. If you cannot create space in your life or home, the Universe cannot bring any new energy into your space or life. Work with Carnelian to pump up your motivation to clear out, Black Obsidian or Black Kyanite to help you let go and Rose Quartz for compassion toward yourself. Even if you start with clearing one thing a day, you are creating SPACE for NEWNESS.
      Oftentimes we want newness in our lives but we hoard onto the old so the Universe is sitting there trying to come through the door, but it can’t as it’s shut.
      I hope this helps and good luck! YOU’VE GOT THIS!!!

  7. Ive two questions i wear in a pouch if going out , clear quartz, rose quartz, amethyst, blue lace agate, blue kyanite, and sodalite to calm my energies, but is this a bad combination??.
    I also wear labradorite on a pendant for a few years now but recently am being drawn to lizardite, can i combine this with labradorite.

    1. It’s not a bad combination but as the article outlines – what is your intention for each of those crystals? Are they working toward one main goal of your pouch and does each one add its own flavour to that goal? Or are they each for specific intentions?
      Any crystal can be combined with another crystal but it’s important to look at what we are looking to achieve with each crystal we combine.

    2. Labradorite and Lizardite work quite well together, tbh, depending on your reason for working with them.
      Labradorite has the ability to boost all psychic and magical abilities/aspects as well as a defending ability e.g. protecting you from harmful entities. And it can much more.
      Lizardite, though, has the ability to make a connection to the Devic Kingdom, bringing forth the posdibility to (directly) work with Nature Spirits, even outright channel them if you wish so, for instance. And much more as well.

      So you see, if your intention is it to work with (Nature) Spirits and to be shielded from the bad ones (a protection crystal would be good as well here, like Aegirine, Morion, Black Tourmaline or Moldavite (helps to raise the vibration, protects that way and as a tektite, links to E.T.s and Spirits as well, with its green color you can see in which direction it can go, may be a nice addition). Look them up and follow your own intuition along the way.

      So you see, if your intention is it to work with (Nature) Spirits and to be shielded from the bad ones (…..), then this combination may very well be a great one in the future. And if your interest doesn’t go into that direction at the moment, then their mentioned abilities, in that regarding, may become interesting to you in a few years. Who knows? Good luck!

      Good day to you!

        1. Lapis lazuli an scarab,moldevite,citrine
          …I think I spelled the first one rite 😮but anyways,I just purchased that one today,an wearing all three do three,is it ok to?

  8. Just a quick comment for strong healing practitioners, I wear a combination of Moldavite and rutilated quartz (touralamine)
    With great success in staying balanced and grounded. However, keep off the heart. It will cause irregular beats.

  9. Hi. I have 5 bracelets
    Amazonite and aquamarine and apatite
    Sunstone and citrine
    Howlite and turquoise
    Amethyst and fluorite
    Can i wear them all together?
    And what are good combinations between my crystals?

    1. Hi Mel,
      You can wear them all together.
      As my article outlines – work with your crystals intentionally by looking at what you want to achieve with each crystal and if they are working toward one main intention with each of their flavors or are working on their own special project.
      Intention = crystals not cancelling each other out.

  10. I’m getting a lady to make me a chakra bracelet,
    I’m new to meditation & trying to centre myself to connect to my inner self and was considering this following ones together with the lava rocks for it to balance out so I can have protection , but also calm my mind & connect with my abilities to relax and also reach another level of love and maintain my emotions & bring down my stress levels and anger.

    Green calcite
    Tigers eye

    Reading about what they all help do I feel it’s a good combination together for me personally . Am I correct or will any of these contradict each other and make it harder for me to control my energies ?

    1. Hi Kameo,
      If you feel that’s a good combination for you, then trust that. Remember that it’s always important to use crystals intentionally so look at what each one can bring toward your main intention or have each of them do their own job so they don’t clash.

  11. I’m wanting to put together a pouch of crystals for a friend who has found out she has brain cancer that is beginning to travel through out her body. I’d like a combination that is soothing as well as helping with her fear of the death process. Perhaps the pouch can be carried as well as placed under her pillow at night. Thank you and blessed be. Susan

    1. Hi Susan,
      Something for her spirit – to uplift it – would be lovely, like Spirit Quartz, combined with something like Lepidolite to soothe her anxieties would be great. Spirit Quartz can also help her connect to the Source of all (whatever that means to her).

      1. Hi Siobhan, is there a darker stone that does what lepidolite does? My partner has recently been diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, I guess it doesn’t matter too much as I could just put it in a pouch for him but I know he won’t wear that colour. Just looking at easing the fear and helping the spirit transit. Thankyou for your time. Blessed Be.

        1. Hi Stacy,
          I am so sorry to hear about your husband.
          Crystals for cancer support while physically healing include: Selenite, Petalite, Amber, Sugilite (which is a dark purple but can also be a lavender color), Smokey Quartz. Selenite I always like to recommend because I find it’s really peaceful and comforting for cancer patients. You could always go with a dark grape Amethyst which can help alleviate fear and anxiety too.
          Alternatively, give him your stones and let him choose <3

          1. Hi Katherine. What about Celestite specifically?
            Celestite does have a calming vibration to it, but it can also be quite high vibrational when you use it for meditation.

  12. I don’t wear crystals but i have a small pouch that i carry everywhere and it has a lot. I have a rose quartz and rhodonite under my pillow. Is that too much? What can you suggest as essential crystals to bring?

    1. It’s difficult to say if it’s too much for you, so I’ll rather ask you this as it’ll be a better gauge – HOW do you FEEL after carrying that pouch? Tired, irritable, easily agitated, drained? If so, it may be too much for you.

      Essential crystals will be any crystals you are drawn to RIGHT NOW so maybe take out all the crystals in the pouch, give them a good clearing and then take a look at them with fresh eyes. Which of the stones draw your eye first? Perhaps work with those first and put the others way. If all of them are drawing your eye, work with all of them and figure out what you want them to assist you with (what’s your intention for them) and then see how you feel. Check in with yourself regularly to determine if you’re carrying too many crystals and if there is a crystal that is not working with you right now.

  13. Hi, is it possible to wear black tourmaline for protection against negative energy with blue apatite for communication? Is it ok to wear the 2 bracelets together? I want to unblock my throat chakra and also tend to get zapped by other people’s energy, especially those with more dominant personalities. I work with a lot of people who tend to see the negative in everything. So I thought black tourmaline could help protect against this and zapping my energy. Thank you for your help!

    1. Hi there,
      Yes it is possible as you have an intention for each crystal 🙂
      Work with crystals intentionally and mindfully, then you are good to go.

  14. Hello, I recently have had this crazy transition which stems from a very long story but let me just let you know the sort of person I am, I’m a 27 years old.. and I’ve been a bit of a typical lad all my life, trouble with law and drink and drugs and stuff, lots of ups and downs along the way same as anybody else, hit a year or two where I suffered from some very severe mental issues that lead to suicide attempts and self harming, I later went back packing I guess you could call it, I came back home to my children and wife and I was such a positive person I did how ever make a switch from the alcohol to cannabis but I am not ashamed as I am such a happy person and a logical and realistic thinker now, everyday I’m surprising myself and I feel proud of myself even tho I have stripped myself back to basics. I am now feeling like a great father and a supportive partner for the first time EVER!

    Now to how I come across Chrystals/stones.
    I have never looked into these or even gave them a single thought, I had no interest or knowledge, Me and my wife took a kid free break back to the county I went ‘backpacking’. Recently my wife had stumbled across a gemstone her recently passed away father had in his belongings along with lots of others but she googled this particular one which was I fact called ‘jade’ I believe and I loved what I read and it reminded me of this crazy transition that I feel the cannabis has had on me, and funny enough the stone was green too, ever since then I started calling a ‘joint’ a ‘jade’ instead. Anyway.. we are on holiday and walking around this shopping centre I guess you could call it, and there was one of those sweet dispenser things you put 1pound in and twist the nozzle.. well this one was full up with gemstones and because of the recent encounter with ‘jade’ we said let’s get one.. so we did.. and then we did and we spun the nozzle together and said that’s our stone as a couple (not knowing anything about these stones at all) we later decided to go get our own ones each so we got one each but then we wanted more so got change and ended up with 6 each taking it in turns. Ever since I have kept them on me as it’s only been 3 days just out of novelty I think but normally I’m very forgetful but the last 3 days I have with out noticingly have kept them on possession at all times with out loosing a single one, getting changed multiple times! So some how these things have latched on to me.

    With in 2 hours of owning my new crystals I had this over whelming sense of anxiety in the car journey on the way home, and spoke up straight away Putting blame on the stones.. brushing it aside but keeping the stones on me, ever since I get random waves of negative thoughts and feelings and emotions only 2 or 3 times a day, this brings me to tonight and googling if stones energy can clash, and eventually stumbling across your post confirmed in my eyes that these crystals deffo have a sense of energy to them and am amazed as I never would have thought in a million years I would believe in this kind of stuff.but after reading the bit about carrying too many crystals can make you feel sluggish or that something isn’t working and how it looks on fleek to carry 6.. it hit the nail on the head to me and made me strongly believe the power of these stones! Never thought I’d say that. So after this long arse story I was wondering if there is any tips or directions you can point me in to gaining some great knowledge into these crystals and learn the powers and combinations to maximise my wellbeing, and most off tell me what I’m doing wrong and why I’m getting these negative waves. What stones do I need to not carry. Could I send you a picture of what I’m carrying?

    Hope I haven’t bored you just keen and amazed by the power I have felt from this and this transition journey I seem to have found my self on.


    1. Hi Jaime!
      What an incredible experience.
      The best advice I can share to learn the powers and combinations that will work for your well-being is to EXPERIMENT with your crystals and just have fun with it!!!
      There are no stones you should not carry, except for those you are not drawn to. If you have a severe dislike for a stone, sit down and think about where it’s just not for you or if there is something about the stone when you read up about it that could be something you need to work on, heal and acknowledge.

      Yes you are welcome to send me a picture of what you’re carrying. I’d love to see!

  15. i am very new! like only just started!
    i have an Amethyst, rose quartz, Labradorite and white quartz together. is that okay? i also wear a moonstone ring.
    help! 🙂

    1. Hi there Amy,
      Sure those sound fine. Remember to:
      Pay attention to how you’re feeling REGULARLY when you wear the crystals, and
      Your intentions for the stones: what do you want to achieve with your crystals? If you want them all to work together for one intention (goal), what does each of them bring to party of that intention?

  16. hi! i have an Amethyst necklace that never comes off, but recently i’ve fallen in love with a Serpentine pendant. I was wondering if they would work well together? or would they leave me feeling drained

    1. Hi there Cassidy.
      It’s hard to say to be honest if they will drain you. If you’re attracted to both stones at the same time, wear it and see how you feel.
      They can work together but look at your INTENTIONS for each stone: What do you want to achieve with the Amethyst? What do you want to achieve with the Serpentine? Do you want them to work together for one intention and if so what does each one bring to the “party” for that intention?

  17. Hi!

    I am a Male 40 yo from India. I am suffering from Diabetes, High BP, Ankylosing Spondylitis with some digestion issues and Financial issues. I do have a very short temper. I have just started wearing Howlite as base 7 chakra bracelet. Ma’am can you pls suggest some stones for my health, anger issues and depression. I get angry and irritated very fast.
    Thanking you
    Best regards

    S Singh

    1. Hi S Singh!
      For health, great ones to work with are Serpentine to boost the immune system and Bloodstone which is just in general really healing for the body on a physical level.
      For anger, work with light blue stones. Howlite is a great one for calm but if you need more suggestions look at Blue Calcite, Blue Chalcedony and even Blue Lace Agate. It’s also important to begin learning how to MANAGE your anger better, so take a look at what your triggers are, what your reactions are when you’re triggered and how you can stop reacting and rather being mindful of your actions.
      For depression, that’s a harder one to work with but I like to recommend Golden Tiger Eye for happiness and grounding at the same time, but Lepidolite is also known to help many people on an energetic level with depression.
      Never forget that crystals complement other forms of therapy but speak to your doctor for more advice and speak to someone you love or trust when you’re feeling low. NO ONE should go through anything alone. Please reach out <3

  18. Hello, can I mix Amethyst and clear Quartz crystals together as a healing necklace? Will the Quartz amplify the Amethyst in a positive way? Also, is Shungite the most powerful protection crystal/ stone?

    1. Hi Barry!!!
      Yes you can mix Amethyst and Clear Quartz BUT look at what you want to achieve with them. So think about your intention for the necklace and how each Clear Quartz and Amethyst can work toward your intention.
      Clear Quartz is an amplifier so if you intention is for it to positively amplify the Amethyst, make it so and so it shall be.
      Shungite is known to be a powerful protector. Is it the most powerful? Yes and no. Yes if that’s what you’re most attracted to for protection but also no because there are other crystals which are powerful in their own right. There is no better or more powerful than the next one when it comes to crystal. Only what works for you.

  19. Hello Ma’am

    Thank you for your response/advice. I will follow it. Kindly confirm, if i can wear these stones on my Left hand wrist as bracelets.

    Can i wear 3 bracelets i.e. Serpentine, Blue Lace Agate and Tiger eye on my left wrist ?

    Hope their energies won’t clash with each other or won’t be overwhelming.

    Should i continue wearing my Howlite 7 chakra bracelet and add the above 3 bracelets?

    Also, i feel very attracted to Turquoise stone. Is it suitable for me as per my situations and date of birth (6 December)? I feel like wearing a big stone as a finger ring. If it’s ok then pls tell in which metal and in which finger should i wear it?

    I thank you sincerely once again for your time and valuable advice. God bless you and give you all the strength for all your future endeavors.

    Best regards

    1. Hi there,
      You can wear those stones or any other stones you are drawn to on our left or right wrist.
      You can wear them all on the same wrist but wear your crystals mindfully and with intention – if your crystals don’t have a “job” to do, it’s pointless.
      You can continue to wear the Howlite and Chakra bracelet with the other bracelets or alone IF you are still drawn to them and you feel they help you with your intention. If not, give them a clearing and store them away from a while.
      If you’re drawn to Turquoise then work with it. You can wear it as a ring on whatever finger you choose.

      There are no rules when it comes to crystals except to work with what you’re drawn to, to do so intentionally (i.e. giving crystals a job to do) and to not overwhelm your body with numerous crystals. Pick 2 or 3 and work with those.
      Working with crystals is more about what works for you 🙂

      1. Hello Ma’am!

        Thankyou very much for your advice/time. I will follow what you have told me. Will update you my progress.

        God bless you! More power to you!

        Best regards n wishes


  20. Good day!
    I just bought clear qurtz, sodalite, snowflake obsidian and hematite beads. I want to make my son a bracelet that can help with his anxiety. And then I read this article of yours- so helpful. But I am still not sure if I can still put all of rhis bracelets together. Would you be able to help me with this?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Bernadette,
      Seeing as the main intention, or goal, for the bracelet is to help relieve anxiety, take a look at how each of the crystals you’re drawn to (Clear Quartz, Sodalite, Snowflake Obsidian, Hematite) contributes to that and can help relieve anxiety so that they each have a job to do for the main goal.

  21. Hi Siobhan,

    I’m a novice in this and i’m trying to figure out what I need. I suffer from negativity, anxiety etc. and fear. I want stones that energise my positivity.

    At the moment i have clear quartz and Lapiz Lazui.

    Any recommendations?

    1. Hi Alistair,
      Welcome to the crystal world! Here are my recommendations for you:
      Busting Negativity: Golden Tiger Eye to keep you uplifted and grounded, Citrine can also be a feel good stone. When it comes to negativity it’s important to take a look at the negativity you’re facing. In other words, is it your social media? Then clean it up. Is it the circles you hang around in that drain you? Don’t partake in gossip and that type of negativity.
      Another good negativity tip is to clear your energy daily and protect it when you head out to do your daily work/chores/tasks. You can protect your energy by holding something like Black Tourmaline or Labradorite and visualizing a protection bubble around you. Then visualise lower vibrations as smoke or arrows hitting your bubble and bouncing off. Tap into this any time you feel you need protection.
      In the evening, using Selenite, clear your energy by combing or sweeping around your body with the Selenite and visualise releasing energy which isn’t yours.

      For anxiety and fear: you can work with something grounding like Smokey Quartz or Black Tourmaline to keep you grounded. You want to get out of your head and into your body. You can combine your grounding stone of choice with Lepidolite, Rose Quartz, Blue Chalcedony or Amethyst to ease stress, anxiety or tension.

      Rock out with your stones!

  22. Can I wear green aventurine, Ruby, pyrite, citrine, and herkimer diamond together in a bracelet? Intention is for good luck, abundance / prosperity / wealth, and career. Is there a better combi for that?

    1. Hi there Jea,

      You can wear all those crystals in a bracelet but I’ d recommend to look into how each of them contributes to your main intention of luck, abundance and prosperity in your life and career. Each one should add something to the recipe so to say. Think of your intention like the dish you are making, and each crystal is the ingredient to make that dish.

  23. Hi Siobhan,

    My intention in wearing crystals is for luck, money, and fortune.

    I have 2 bracelets I wear all the time: citrine and golden rutilated quartz. I am planning to add 1 more bracelet. Please help me which one is the best combination.

    1.citrine, golden rutilated quartz, and yellow calcite
    2.citrine, golden rutilated quartz and yellow tiger’s eye
    3.citrine, golden rutilated quartz, and sunstone
    4.citrine, sunstone, and carnelian (but i like yellow or golden stones).

    Thank you!

    1. HI Yza,
      Because you like yellow or golden stones, I would recommend to go with the Citrine, Rutilated Quartz and either Yellow Calcite or Tiger Eye. Which one do you prefer? That’s the one you go with 😉

  24. Hi Siobhan! Greetings (and a lot of love) from Brazil!

    I have a few crystals in my room and beside just feeling well, connected with my spirituality, maintaining a healthy relationship with my fiancée, I have some particular motivations and I intend to use my crystals to help them.

    I have anxiety and still struggle with depression, although I do therapy, it’s still something that I always expect my crystals to help! I also know a lot of them are good for it.

    I have some spaces in my bedroom that I would like to put my crystals around.
    1. On the side of my bed.
    2, In my TV desk (is in front of my desk and where all my crystals are right now)
    3. In my studies desk.

    Could you help me with the pairings and where to put them in these three places? If you have any tips on which crystals I can get for these places as well, to complement the ones I already have, I’d be grateful to know! Also, if you think there are any spaces that I should get room for crystals in here as well, I’d like that too (like, next to the door, or something, since all these places are far from the room entrance).

    My crystals are:
    2 Aquamarine (one is really small and polished, and the other is raw and bigger)
    2 Amethyst
    1 Unakite
    1 Citrine
    1 Amazonite
    2 Rose quartz
    1 Aventurine
    1 Blue quartz
    1 Clear Quartz
    1 Smoky quartz
    1 Selenite
    1 Black Tourmaline

    Thank you so much!!!

    1. Hi Bia,

      So it’s always going to important to go with crystals based on your intention and intuition.
      While you want to do A LOT with your crystals, I’d recommend to start with ONE area and then move into the other area, especially since all your crystals are in ONE room. You may find with ALL of them out, you’re going to get overwhelmed. Pick an area of your life you want to dedicate your space to and start there. LESS is always more with crystals.

      If you want to feel more productive and creative, place a crystal in a space where you are productive (your studies desk).
      If you want to feel more connected to your spirituality, place a crystal on a space dedicated for this.
      If you want more calm at night with the addition of love, then place a crystal on each of your bedside tables, with the addition of one or two for calm. Here’s some suggestions for family crystals

      You already have the right idea with what you said here “I feel like the energetic and creative combo should be in the studies desk, and the rest should be distributed between the bed side and the TV desk.” and it seems like you just need someone to say that what you think is correct so here I am saying YES YES YES GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then send pics 😉

      Just to go further, I’m including some tips with the crystals you mentioned based on your intentions and messages:
      Aquamarine – calming, good for getting in the flow.
      Amethyst – good for bedtime, calming.
      Unakite – great for collaborations and relationships because of its marriage of pink and green within it.
      Citrine – productive, creative, energizing, happy (read more here
      Amazonite – calming, communicative.
      Rose quartz – loving, calming.
      Aventurine – I’m assuming green but with Rose Quartz it’s balancing, also growth encouraging.
      Blue quartz – great for the mind and mental game.
      Clear Quartz – it’s great for everything so you can decide what you want to use it for.
      Smoky quartz – grounding, protective, clearing.
      Selenite – spirituality, clearing, calming (read more here
      Black Tourmaline – grounding, protective.

      Here’s some suggestions based upon Feng Shui –

      I hope this all helps and remember I’m here cheering you on saying “YES YES YES GO FOR IT!” 😀

      1. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! You’re the sweetest! I’ll read every one of the links ahahaha thank you so much <3

    1. Hi there Rajani,

      You can look up crystal properties within this online directory here
      I have written about Malachite, which you can read here

      Yes you can wear all of them together and for more about intentions, I recommend you visiting this post on Facebook where I wrote indepth about intentions and how to form them if you’re wearing/using more than one crystal

      1. Thank you so much! You’re the sweetest 😊 I will go through the detailed links and come back with any more questions…
        Take care!

  26. Hi Siobhan,

    Thank you very much for going into this. Question is there anything I should know about if I were to combine jade and shungite? I have been wearing jade for a very long time and have a bit of an affinity for it. I have recently heard about shungite and am interested in learning a bit more about any potential advantages and disadvantages. Also does it matter wear the crystal is worn?

    Thank you

  27. I am a beginner and I don’t know where to start. I am interested in purchasing a lot with various crystals and stones. I just don’t know where to start or when ones to get. I suffer from depression anxiety, no energy or stamina. I have also been a worrier, but trying to bring peace into my life. There are several sets I have looked at but not sure which one to start with first. I’m a cancer survivor but have lost a lot of my family members the last few years. My parents 7 months apart, my aunt just recently and two very good friends. I feel as if I’m just exsisting and constantly worry about the other family members. Everyone looks to me or I feel it’s my responsibility to take care of them emotionally. Help!

    1. Hi Sonja! Welcome to the crystal journey!!
      Right so you’re interested in purchasing crystals – tell me what crystal is it that has intrigued you and made you want to look into purchasing crystals? Start there. You were drawn to this path for a reason and that’s a good place to start.

      I shall offer you some recommendations based on your request. Look at photos of them and then take a few days to mull it over and see which stick in your brain.
      Depression and anxiety relief – lepidolite, amethyst, rose quartz, blue chalcedony. Also don’t think you need to go through anything alone, reach out to someone you trust when you feel like things are too much and you’re carrying too much. Accept help when offered to you.
      Energy and Stamina – carnelian, golden tiger eye and red jasper. Also take a look at what you’re consuming and I don’t mean just food here. Often the circles we mingle in, the things we watch, social media we are exposed to; they all can make you tried.

      Lastly, it’s not your responsibility to save the world or anyone in it. It’s your responsibility to save yourself. Look after yourself FIRST and I mean it, sternly. You will never be of service if you are drained. You become of service when you serve you first. Make you number one. You’ve got this!!
      I know this is very easily said and read but it’s true, you’ve got to look out for yourself and stand up for yourself. The less you do it, the more people walk over you and thus expect you to look after things. You are so worth it!

  28. Hi,
    Which Crystals should I wear? My intentions are for good support from Superiors, Peers & Subordinates for my career. Lately feeling very depressed and demoralised.
    Hope you can assist me. Tq.

    1. Hi Audrey,
      You can take a look at Rose Quartz to encourage love. This is going to help you because the more you love and respect yourself, the more you will radiate that energy to others. Black Tourmaline can help remind you of your boundaries and to stick to them. Green Fluorite or Blue Calcite within the office can encourage harmony with colleagues.
      Never ever forget that you are not a doormat and that you don’t need to accept that kind of behaviour from others! You are worthy of respect even when people disagree with you. End of story!

  29. I wear 4 crystal bracelets as well as a ring. Green Jasper, garnet, rhodochrosite, and hematite. I wear the Jasper/garnet because it works with my sign to energize and balance me. The rhodochrosite is to build love and compassion internally and externally. The hematite to keep me grounded and dispel negativity. I used to wear them on the left hand to bring these attributes inward. However, upon adding the hematite, I experience a throbbing sensation all through the left side of me. So I switched to the right. Any ideas of why that would be?

    1. Hi Pria,
      So Hematite is a very strong grounder and what you felt may just have been you experiencing the energy. If things do continue and you begin to feel uncomfortable using that stone, take a look at whether you are really attracted to it. If not, clear it and put it away for some time. If you are attracted to it and the throbbing continues, check with your local physician that things are physically fine with you.

  30. Is Peridot and blue kyanite a good combination? I wear a peridot ring and tuck the blue kyanite in a pocket.

    1. Sounds like a good combination but look at WHY you want to wear both – what’s your intention and what do you want to achieve with them.

  31. Hi! I just found this and I’m very new to understanding stones. Where do you order them to make sure they are real? And also if I want to have them in my room can I just lay them on my dresser or do I have to make sure they’re not next to each other?

    I wanted to get quartz crystal, citrine, and amethyst because of the intentions I have I am not sure if these are the correct stones though (I want to be more in tune with my spiritual feelings and intuition/psychic feelings and strengthen that, as well as have protection against negativity and bad nightmares. I also want to feel less anxiety and overthinking.

    Do you have to recharge them and how do you do that? Sorry for too many questions! I will continue to read up on it as this is my first day looking into this. Thank you so much!

    1. Hi there Sepanta,

      Welcome to the crystal journey!
      So I am based in South Africa and here’s a blog post about stores I support
      I also offer some tips to buying online if you’re not in South Africa and you’ve found a local crystal shop you want to support.

      The internet is your friend and filled with many sites that offer information on real and fake crystals. Stuck, here’s a video for you about fakies
      HibiscusMoon also has a ton of info on her website about fake crystals. You’ve got to begin to learn about that before you can be confident in spotting fakes.

      You can keep them in your room, however and wherever you like, but as I always mention – what’s your INTENTION for them. If you’re just going to have them lying around, that’s fine, then ensure you’re clear that they’re just decorative.

      Quartz and Amethyst sound like good choices for spirituality and connecting with your intention. Citrine is lovely for boosting your confidence to begin trusting your intuition. However if you want to work on anxiety and overthinking, add a GROUNDING stone to your list. You’ve got crystals that are all for the top chakras, but you are first and foremost a physical human being having a SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE. So you need some grounding stones and/or practices. Good grounders are Hematite, Red Jasper, Smokey Quartz and Black Tourmaline.

      You don’t have to recharge them or clear them if you don’t want to. I share more about that in my companion blogpost here

      I hope this helps and if you have any questions, let me know! You’ve got this 😀

  32. I have 1 inch amethyst ear gauges and 1 inch howlite gauges, could I wear one in one ear and one I’m the other?
