How do the crystals work?
Crystals are naturally formed and extracted semi-precious stones, that have energies of different planets and composition of mineral that aid in particular issues of mankind, as they work on the universe's vibration.
Our body and homes have vibrational energies too, and when we use these crystals, they interact with the existing energies and absorb unwanted and reflect the healing / cleansed vibrational energy we can use to create and manifest desired outcomes.
Different crystals have different purposes
Every crystal type has a different purpose, so it depends on what your intention of using the stone could be. Some crystals like clear quartz and rose quartz are commonly used and can be worn or used by anyone and everyone - however, some stones are not favourable for all. You can sometimes be prescribed to wear a particular crystal for a specific reason depending on your concern.
