- The Choice
As we already said, each crystal and stone attracts a different energy and the choice should vary a lot between what your goals are with that purchase. However, if you don’t know where to start, choose one that cleans and another that energizes the environment you are. For these functions, amethyst and emerald are widely used. The first one has a very strong spiritual force, clearing negative energies, attracting protection and keeping the mind focused. The second one, on the other hand, has a great capacity for harmonization, which brings positive energies to the environment.
There are several other minerals with very strong energizing properties with a wide variety of colors, shapes and prices.

- The purchase
This is a topic that deserves a lot of attention and care! In recent times, it is possible to find crystals and stones in many places. If you live in a busy place like São Paulo, for example, each street has a stall selling. But, many of these places actually sell counterfeit versions of the minerals, which completely misses the purpose of the purchase, right? Often, what you are seeing is just a piece of acrylic very well worked and dyed.
So, if you still don’t have so much experience and wouldn’t know how to identify a fake version, the best option is to go to stores specializing in crystals and stones, where the sellers themselves can help you with the meanings and care of the purchase. With a quick internet search, finding the right and reliable places is easy.
- The cleaning
Before starting to use it, it’s very important to clean and energize your crystals and stones because they have already had contact with other people and environments. This process is not at all complicated and works with most minerals: just wash with running water, give a coarse salt bath and put it somewhere where it will have contact with sunlight and moon for a day.
But, not all stones can go through this process due to their more porous composition or even due to their color. In such cases, it’s always important to listen to the recommendations of the person who helped you with the purchase!
In any case, a common tip that we find on the internet is the use of the selenite stick, which works by approximation. Just place this stick very close to your minerals and let it act for a day that the cleaning of energies is guaranteed.
- The use
After all these processes, is show time! You can use your crystals and stones where you prefer, taking only a few precautions if you choose to leave them on your body. Some stones, such as black tourmaline, have the power to isolate energies, which can affect your relationship with people. So, if you want to have a source of protection with you to go through some situation or place, put it in your pocket and, once you’re done, store it in another space.
