We hope this helps narrow down the choices a bit, so you don’t feel you have to take everything home at once!

When choosing crystals, you should of course also pay attention to your own intuition. If you feel a certain crystal just “jumps off the shelf” or feels warm in your hand, that’s a good indication the two of you belong together. Some other stones we’ve found resonate with a lot of people include: Jade, Smoky Quartz, Selenite, Hematite, Rainbow Fluorite, Green Aventurine, Sunstone and Labradorite.
