The world of feng shui crystals and stones is absolutely fascinating. Crystals work in powerful, even though subtle ways; they can help you attract the desired quality of energy, strengthen your personal energy field, clear your space of negative energy, and more, so much more.
In feng shui crystals are widely used for their specific properties, such as protection, grounding, love, etc. I am sure you have seen a variety of jade amulets, from jade wu lous to money frogs, as well as rose quartz mandarin ducks.
All these amulets are nice, of course, but most people in the West do not resonate with their look and feel (I know I don’t, and neither do my clients).
There is actually a better way to employ the power of crystals to work in your space and create good feng shui energy (or in your personal energy field in case of smart feng shui jewelry).
So, if the classical Chinese crystal cures that most people associate with feng shui are not to your liking, this info on top 8 feng shui crystals should be very helpful to you.
I will briefly tell you the main qualities of each crystal or stone, how it is used for good feng shui in your home or office, as well as where to place it for good feng shui. Enjoy!
Clear quartz is a very versatile crystal and can do a variety of jobs – from clearing, protecting and strengthening your energy field to carrying any specific quality of energy, be it to attract love or help release fear of exams.
I love clear quartz for its happiness, abundance of light, colourful rainbows and its deeply enchanting and optimistic inner world. Because it can be programmed to help you, because it comes in so many forms (and because it is so affordable!), this is truly a crystal that every home or office should have.
This top feng shui crystal is also a favourite of interior designers because its clear color works in any interior and with any decorating style. You can find clear quartz in beautiful fancy doorknobs, stunning candleholders or various coffee table adornments.
My most favorite clear quartz crystal forms are clusters and generators (also called towers), but then I also love the big and clear tumbled stones I have, the countless points and wands bought over the years, the ecstatically happy crystal ball filled with rainbows, my jewellery with clear quarts, and so on and so on. In other words, I obviously love clear quartz!
Feng shui wise, place it in areas that need fresh, crisp, clear energy, somewhat resembling a combination of happy sunlight and clear fresh water. You can’t really go wrong with the placement of the clear quartz in your home or office because this crystal will adjust its energy to any bagua area you place it in.
The only suggestion is to avoid having a crystal cluster close to your bed because a cluster can be too energizing for a bedroom, unless you display it further away from your bed.
(This suggestion applies to any crystal cluster, not just clear quartz, due to the high energetic activity of a crystal cluster formation).
The energy of rose quartz is pure softness, gentleness, sweet love and healing. Rose quartz soothes and washes away the pain, disappointment and any other negative energies that might have closed your heart.
Rose quartz is considered a master healer when it comes to all love related matters – be it lack of self-love or painful romantic love experiences.
Because rose quartz is so powerfully connected to your heart, and because it constantly radiates a soothing flow of love, this is the absolute best feng shui crystal for any bedroom, be it an adult bedroom or a child‘s bedroom.
You can place several rose quartz tumbled stones in your nightstand drawer or place them in a small bowl directly on your nightstand; you can create a rose quartz crystal grid in your bedroom or just place a few smooth crystals under your pillow when going through an especially trying time in your love relationship.
Feng shui-wise, rose quartz crystal is the number #1 feng shui crystal for your Love & Marriage bagua area. Place a bowl of tumbled rose quartz stone in this area, two rose quartz hearts or, if you so desire, you can also go for the traditional feng shui school cure of two rose quartz mandarin ducks as a symbol of committed love.
Of course, as with any crystal and stone, there is such a wide variety of amethyst crystals on the market, from very light lavender color to deep intense indigo. Each amethyst will express its specific presence with color; the deeper the color of the crystal, the more powerful (and expensive) the amethyst.
Feng shui wise, the most potent form of amethyst is the tall geode with deep and clear purple color. This can be an absolutely stunning feng shui cure for any space because it sucks in, so to speak, all the lower energies, either negative or stale, and transmutes them into peaceful and powerful light energy.
You can also use tumbled stones, of course, as well as small clusters to bring a purifying, calm spiritual energy to any space.
Amethyst is one of the best crystal choices for your altar or meditation room; it can also be used as a feng shui cure for the Personal Growth and Spiritual Cultivation bagua area of your home or office.
If you are lucky to have a deep purple color amethyst, be mindful about keeping your crystal away from sunlight (to avoid discoloration).
Jade is obviously the absolute darling of the classical feng shui world. It has a very long history of use in China; this backs up its reputation of the #1 traditional feng shui crystal used in a variety of classical feng shui cures, from money frogs to the Laughing Buddha.
Of course, as with any popular feng shui crystal or stone, there is an overflow of imitation jade on the market, so if your heart is set on jade, be sure you are buying a genuine stone.
History aside, genuine jade stone has beautiful energy to it – soothing, renewing and softly energizing. Jade is like a friend who accepts you for who you are, at the same time radiating such an optimistic, wise energy that you cannot help but feel better.
Its harmonious, balancing energy is of a wise woman quality – loving, happy, accepting, knowing that all is well now (and not just in the end).
Feng shui wise, the deep green jade is perfect for your Health and Family bagua area, as well as for your Money & Abundance area. Because jade comes in so many colors, you can choose it as a feng shui cure based on the color needed in specific bagua area of your home or office.
For example, you can place a blue jade in your Career area, or a brown jade in your Helpful People & Blessings bagua area.
If you understand the expression “Easy, tiger!”, then you will easily understand the energy of Tigers eye (as well as why it is so very popular in feng shui).
Tigers eye is a master protector – watchful, strong, quick and very efficient. Its protective qualities have a very dynamic feel to them, tigers eye can transmute negative energy very quickly, but it does it in a balancing kind of way.
The beauty of tigers eye is that it protects and nourishes you at the same time, leaving you with a stronger, more vibrant and balanced energy field.
Because of its strong earthy energy, tigers eye can also be used as an earth element feng shui cure in any of the bagua areas that are either nourished, or defined by the presence of the earth feng shui element.
I love tigers eye and keep being amazed at its energies, as well as variations of colors and designs. This stone is definitely a feng shui must, especially since it is so very affordable.
