Personally, crystals are beautiful. You can find them in a range of shapes, sizes and colours. However, there is an entirely different category of crystals or semi-precious stones that are used in Feng-shui to benefit the mind and body. And in this article, we are focusing on seven of the most beautiful and helpful Feng Shui Crystals for your home.
What truly makes the experience wonderful for me is the number of stories people tell me about their crystals. If you talk to other crystal lovers, every single person has a lovely story of finding the stones that resonate with them. Precious stones that uplift them. The stones help clear the negative energy and provide balance, clarity and peace.
Feng Shui crystals are a special breed of crystal. Hopefully, you will be as inspired as I was when looking into the benefits these precious stones provide.
It's not just about feng-shui; crystals themselves are powerhouses of energy.
They store energy, and they are also capable of moving chi or energy through space or a person.
The practise of using crystals to heal is at least 6000 years old.
According to researchers, the ancient Sumerians and Egyptians used crystals exclusively for their properties (apart from their decorative value).
However, modern crystal use is focused on using crystals to store energy or chi and redirect it in a much more favourable manner.
As a result, different stones are assigned various properties based on their effects and properties. Crystal healers typically use their stones by placing them on body chakras to influence the body and heal sickness.
Placing the crystals in specific locations in your home can have much of the same effects but on a broader plane.
So if you are interested in feng-shui crystals, here is our top list of beautiful but useful crystals that will benefit different aspects of your life.
Rose quartz is beautiful. It comes in a range of colours, shapes and sizes and its super-popular as a jewellery stone.
The most common colour is rose-pink, but you will find lovely dark red to blood red shades.
However, just like the colour, the stone radiates peace, happiness and healing.
The rose quartz stone is a master healer, and it is commonly used to heal almost every aspect of relationships and romantic experiences.
In feng-shui, rose quartz is used to enhance the romance sector of your home.
Ideally, the romance sector of any home is back right corner of a room, but specifically your bedroom.

We love amethysts are they are beautifully purple and vivid in colour.
Something about purple is just so soothing and calming.
The colour is also synonymous with spiritual and psychic empowerment.
In fact, in Chinese civilisation, it is considered the primary stone for clearing negative energy and driving away hazards from personal, spiritual and professional lives.
In Feng Shui, amethysts can deflect negative energy and redirect positive energy into useful areas.
For example, most practitioners recommend using the stone by placing it in different segments of your home as related to different areas of your life.
For example, the number 5 symbolises reconciliation of all conflicts and the central area of your home. By placing an amethyst in this area, you are encouraging just that.
This gem works in two ways.
It is an energy booster, and it can stabilise your energy as well. When it is placed in a room, it can increase the energy flow in the room.
At the same time, it turns the energy into a peaceful warm and secure strength.
Just like its sunset orange colours, users have reported feeling peacefully warm and joyful on using this stone in their homes.
Most users recommend placing two gemstone hearts in the love and relationship area of your home. The second best place is in the fame and reputation of the Bagua area of your home.
The exact shape of the stone can also influence your home in different ways. For example, you can choose tumbled stones or Carnelian hearts, balls or Carnelian spheres and specific carvings to direct energy in your home.
This is a very uniquely coloured stone.
The banded colours range from a light yellow to a deep chocolaty brown, but they are truly beautiful to look at.
It's safe to say that no two of these stones are the same in colour, but they are very effective in protecting your home.
It is considered a powerful dynamic stone with a protective and watchful quality.
Metaphysically, a tiger's eye can bring clarity to a situation, help focus your mind, guard your energy, reduce fear and promote mental clarity.
Its ideal placement would be near your front door or around windows. It's also a great stone for protecting children.
Place a stone in their room or make it a keychain to help with life balance and protection.
Citrines are just beautiful.
They are traditionally considered healing stones for third chakra or solar plexus issues.
However, the stone is also considered ideal for boosting self-esteem and creating positive energy in any location.
For businessmen, this stone is also considered the ideal stone to boost finances and positive cash flows.
Traditionalists usually place the stone in the money area of a home as a wealth cure.
Citrine is one of the best Feng Shui crystals for wealth. If you would like to attract more wealth in your life then be sure to have citrine crystals on you and around your home.

However, we also like carved, or feng shui cures made from citrine like wealth vases, crystal gem trees, clusters, tealight candle holders and points.
However, tumbled crystals in a simple glass bowl also work just as well.
We recommend choosing from citrine clusters and citrine geodes, which are more rare and expensive relative to the amethyst versions.
Carved stones and jewellery is also great. Crystal gem trees with citrine leaves, in particular, are quite popular in Asia.
Users have citrine trees that are placed in the wealth corner of the house.
Believers place folded wishes under the tree with Mandarin oranges to make their wishes come true.
You can do the same by investing in a citrine crystal tree and positioning it in the family room to improve harmony, facilitate bonds between family members and ensure overall wealth and harmony.
Pyrite is called fool's gold because it resembles gold.
The stone shines with a beautiful golden lustre, and it is considered ideal as a wealth cure.
It brings with it a crisp energizing aspect to any home and with it comes wealth. Yes, it may be known as fool's gold, but it is very well known to help set the intention of the owners on the attraction of wealth and money.
We've not seen jewellery with pyrite, but it is considered grounding and protective. You will find large cubes, spheres and towers of this stone online and they make for beautiful home ornamentation.
Display the stone prominently in the wealth and cure position of your home, and you should see the effects almost immediately.
If pyrite resembles gold, then this stone resembles silver and steel so much that it can stun you.
It is technically the mineral form of iron oxide, and it is one of the oldest known iron oxide minerals in the world.
The jet-black silvery sheen of the stone is simply beautiful, and it can make the stone one of the most beautiful additions to a household.
Hematite is known for stress-busting and grounding qualities.
It is supposed to be placed near the door and ensures the energy entering the home is calm and soothing.
It also seems to help soothe hyperactive children and it is commonly placed in their rooms.
You can find tumbled stones, carvings, towers, and jewellery that are ideal for powering up the positive energy of a home.
Although we love the top 7 crystals we've mentioned above, we do believe that clear quartz is also an essential member of this list and deserves an honorary mention.
Just like its name, the clarity of a clear quartz crystal ensures that your mind remains open and curious.
The most exciting aspect of the stone is you can charge the stone with specific intent and energy.
You can infuse it with your desires and target it towards a specific direction.
Of course, it also means that your energy is transmuted and purified through the crystal resulting in healing and harmony in a home.
Although decorative crystal use for feng-shui is now commercialised, you can just as well find small personalised crystals that you can use to maximum effect.
We recommend finding a good feng-shui person and then picking a single stone for personal use.
If you are happy with the effect of one stone, you can then move on to using more stones in different parts of your life.
The practise of Feng Shui dates back over 5,000 years and it is easy to see why so many people follow these teachings.
Ultimately, the goal of Feng Shui is to help harmonise you and the people around you with your environment. This translates to a wonderful flow of energy in your home or office and bedroom.
The benefit of combining the teachings of Feng Shui with the positive energy and balance that crystals provide can be life-changing. The more you read about Feng Shui Crystals, the more you start to notice the change of energy flow around you and your family.
Hopefully, these feng shui tips and popular feng shui crystals provide some inspiration and ideas for your home.
Best of luck with your feng shui crystals.
