These feng shui crystals and stones can improve the energy in your space

Called the Fools gold, pyrite is a very popular feng shui money cure (I guess better fool’s gold than no gold!) Humor aside, pyrite does have some beautiful properties that you can use to benefit the energy of your home or office. Pyrite is actually one of the best feng shui cures for an office, because it brings a crisp, energizing, optimistic and disciplined kind of energy with it. Considered protective and grounding, you can often find pyrite shaped in beautiful spheres or cubes, which makes it easy to bring this stone to any space as a good feng shui decor feature.
Being a strong expression of the Metal feng shui element, as well as obviously resembling gold in its looks (when first discovered, pyrite was thought to be gold), pyrite is one of the top feng shui stones used as a wealth and money cure. You can display your pyrite in the Money & Abundance bagua area of your home or office, as well as wear it as jewelry if you feel the need for a clean, shiny and disciplined kind of energy. Pyrite is also one of the best stones to wear for those who have Water or Metal as their personal feng shui birth element.
Carnelian stone is another beloved stone of mine. Well, I sure love them all, but there will always be some crystals or stones that will speak to you more than others. I love carnelian for its earthy, nourishing warmth and wisdom, for its beautiful colors that range from the most gentle yellow to the deepest fiery orange, as well as for its happy and optimistic energy expressed in a calm and assuring kind of way.
This beauty is one of the best stones to wear when you need to strengthen your energy and let go of past beliefs and limitations. Carnelian is also one of the best stones used to activate your physical energy (it helps strengthen your first and second chakras). Because carnelian harmoniously blends both fire and earth feng shui elements, you can freely use it in any of the bagua areas that can benefit from these two elements. The presence of carnelian is always welcomed in your Love & Marriage area, as well as the Personal Growth & Spiritual Cultivation bagua area. If you have a deep red carnelian, it can be an excellent feng shui cure to activate the Fame & Reputation bagua area of your space.
Ammonite is neither a crystal nor a stone, but it sure belongs on our list of top feng shui crystals and stones because it is extensively used in feng shui for its very unique properties. Well, in defense of other crystals, ammonite had over 100 million years to become unique! This fossilized shell of an ancient mollusk can bring extraordinary energy to any space, a quality of energy that is clearing, powerful and energizing.
The amazing design of this fossil reveals the way it works — it brings a constantly rotating energy that clears stagnation, blockages and any other residues of low energy. This clearing is done in a solid and constant kind of way, nothing radical or temporary. How can you possibly work in radical or temporary ways when time is no more than a passing illusion for you?
Feng shui-wise, the colorful ammolite is much sought after (ammolite being the iridescently colorful, gem quality shell of the ammonite). It comes in unbelievably bright and beautiful colors, from ethereal white to deeply vibrant red; and is very energizing and uplifting. Of course, the bigger the ammonite (or ammolite) you have in your home or office, the more incredible work it can master.
A big ammonite, and especially a big piece of ammolite, can command quite high fees. The small ones are quite affordable, though, so there is no reason not to invite this miracle worker into your home. The feng shui placement of ammonite or ammolite will only be restricted by color; for example, if your ammolite has fiery red colors, you will probably not want to place it in the Health bagua area of your home. Otherwise, if the colors are quite neutral, you can place this ancient beauty in any bagua area.
So, there you have it, the top 8 feng shui crystals for your home and office: Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Jade, Tigers Eye, Pyrite, Carnelian, and Ammonite.
You might have noticed I did not include Citrine here, which is truly a great feng shui crystal. The reason I decided not to have it on the list is because almost 90% of all stones sold as citrine (especially tumbled stones or feng shui amulets with citrine) are not citrine, but heat treated amethyst. Genuine citrine is usually a bit more expensive, and is best found from reputable crystal suppliers such as crystal galleries, for example. So, the citrine crystal is not on the list, but now that you know its story, you can look for it and ask all the right questions.
There are certainly many more crystals that can be used for good feng shui energy, all depending on your specific needs. If you are new to feng shui, start with these 8 crystals. After you’ve been in the company of crystals for a while, you might also feel drawn to many other beautiful, powerful crystals and stones such as tourmaline, smoky quartz, hematite, black onyx, and jasper; to name just a few of the most popular ones.
This article would not be complete without suggestions on where to buy good feng shui crystals and stones. I believe that the best way to choose a crystal or stone is in person; so look for a crystal shop, a new age bookstore, or even a gift shop that carries crystals and stones. Allow yourself some uninterrupted time to visit the store and experience their energy for yourself, see which crystals you feel drawn to. Finding the best crystal or stone for yourself or your home is often like falling in love — it just happens in the moment.
Another way to buy good crystals and stones is to go online and look for credible sources. I love etsy.com for its abundance of absolutely brilliant people with a great selection of crystals and stones in all forms — from raw formations to exquisite jewelry. We also have good feng shui crystals and stones in our online feng shui shop (powered by amazon.com). This is by no means a complete list because I am sure there are many more websites that sell beautiful crystals and stones. Before you go shopping, be sure to read the info on how to benefit from feng shui crystals.
