Did you know there are over 4,000 crystals that naturally occur? When it comes to buying crystals for the first time, the options can be overwhelming! How can you choose the right crystal for you? What is considered to be high-quality? How do you know that you’re getting a great deal?
Today, my goal is to answer all of these questions for new crystal buyers. You can discover where to buy crystals, the best way to select the most appropriate crystals, as well as other buying advice.
Where can you find crystals?
You will find a good selection of crystals at most spiritual or metaphysical stores. It is possible to locate the nearest shops by conducting some Google searches. You will notice the difference between shopping on the internet or in the store in. There are many options available to you, as well as experts who can help you make a decision. Navigate to this site to discover special info about crystal.
There are numerous sites that sell crystals. If you decide to order a crystal online, check the description on the photo or somewhere on their website which may contain an acknowledgement that the crystal you’d prefer to purchase is the exact one that appears in the picture.
Some crystal shops on the internet offer a photo of what the crystal appears like, but the crystal you receive may differ slightly in the patterns, colors and shapes of the crystal. I enjoy supporting small-scale companies by purchasing crystals on Etsy.
The pre-COVID era was when crystal and gem shows were common all over the world. They offered wholesale pricing and discounts to buyers with a seller’s permit. Some metaphysical or spiritual shops might honor a permit for sellers or offer special pricing for those who wish to buy in the bulk. I’ve done this many times with not only my seller’s permit, but buying in bulk for gifts for Christmas.
Shop with intention
It is beneficial to have a clear goal or at least an idea of what you would like to utilize the crystal for, whether that is to strengthen your chakras, assist with meditation, provide prosperity and good fortune, provide grounding & protection, manifest goals, ease stress or anxiety, motivation to move forward with mental clarity and focus, or perhaps you’re open to the crystal you’re drawn to most at that moment in your life. Are you searching for an elemental crystal that will help you at all levels of your being- spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically?
Keep your intentions in mind when you are deciding on the dimensions of the piece you’d like to purchase. Are you planning to make it a decorative item or to boost your energy? Do you require it to be compact enough that it fits in your purse or pocket to bring luck? Perhaps you’d like one that you can carry in your hand for meditation.
How do you choose the right crystal
What crystals do you like the most, whether you shop on the internet or in person? Typically, the one you love the most is the one that is designed specifically for you. Perhaps it’s the color that grabs your attention, or the way it shines when it is illuminated.
If you’re looking to buy something in person, but you aren’t certain if the crystal is the right one for you, place it in your open (left hand) and close your eyes. You may feel the energy shift. Also, your body may sway forward or feel a tingling or vibration within your hand. Don’t worry, this is not an electrical shock instead, it’s the sound of energy moving from the crystal and resonating and in tune with your personal frequency. When you hold the crystal, you should pay attention to your mood and your energy.
Crystals of different types
If you’re looking for a crystal for the first time, you’ll come across various types of crystals, that can be either raw, polished natural, dyed, or natural. Crystals also come in various shapes and sizes. From professional and personal experience, I’ve found that both polished and raw stones are equally beneficial in healing. But, I strive to find crystals as natural as they can be.
