One of the most effective ways of using crystals for healing is to wear them. Although placing these crystals around your home and workplace is also great for creating a soothing, healing environment and cleansing energy.
However, choosing the right crystal can be a bit daunting since there are a lot of beautiful healing crystals out there. Fortunately, you can never go wrong if you choose the one that feels right.

Choosing Your Birthstone Gemstones and Crystals
You can either choose monthly birthstones or zodiac birthstones.
Monthly birthstones refer to those crystals that are associated with every month of the year. It is believed that birthstones originally started way back in the breastplate of Aaron which consists of twelve crystals that represent the twelve tribes of Israel.
Later, there have been some changes in the specific stones used for monthly birthstones. Nevertheless, the concept of birthstones still plays a significant role in most customs, traditions, and beliefs.
Do you know what is your birthstone? If not, then you can choose your monthly birthstone gemstone or crystal, based on the month you were born. If you feel good about the birthstone that represents your birth month, then you might as well look for healing crystals, healing jewelry, and the gemstone for that stone.
The birthstone for January is Garnet, for February, is Amethyst, for March Bloodstone and Aquamarine, for April, Clear Quartz and Diamond, for May Chrysoprase and Emerald, for June, Moonstone and Pearl, for July, Carnelian and Ruby, for August, Sardonyx and Peridot, for September, Lapis Lazuli and Blue Sapphire, for October, Pink Tourmaline and Opal, for November, Citrine and Yellow Topaz, and for December, Tanzanite, Blue Topaz, and Turquoise.
Although we are aware that there is a specific birthstone or gemstone that is associated with our birth month, there are also previous crystals and gemstones that are associated with our zodiac signs, also known as zodiac birthstones.
Additionally, it is also possible that each of these zodiac signs is associated with birthstones. That is why stones are often known as “having an affinity with”, instead of focusing more on a specific zodiac sign.
Do you know what is your zodiac birthstone? Your zodiac sign will be based on your birthdate. Look for healing crystals, healing jewelry, and gemstones that are associated with your zodiac birthstones.
The zodiac sign Aries corresponds to birthdates between March 21 and April 20, Taurus between April 21 and May 21, Gemini between May 22 and June 21, Cancer between June 22 and July 23, Leo between July 24 and August 23, Virgo between August 24 and September 23, Libra between September 24 and October 23, Scorpio between October 24 and November 22, Sagittarius between November 23 and December 21, Capricorn between December 22 and January 20, Aquarius between January 21 and February 19, and Pisces between February 20 and March 20.
Choosing Chakra Gemstones and Crystals
Generally, there are seven main chakras that are related to our physical body. They can be found in the base of the spine and are aligned with the spine, the solar plexus, the lower abdomen, the heart, the middle of the forehead, the throat, and the crown of the head. These chakras come with crystals and colors and also influence various aspects of human behavior and emotion.
Look for healing crystals, healing jewelry, and gemstones that are targeted to these chakras and learn more about each chakra and what particular part of the body it influenced. Chakra healing is quite effective whether chakra crystals are used to balance all chakras together or used for targeting individual chakras on their own.
Sacral chakra gemstones focus more on helping you with your relationships with others. Base chakra gemstones can help in keeping you grounded. When it comes to your emotions, Solar Plexus chakra gemstones can be a great help.
Throat chakra gemstones concentrate more on expression and communication. Heart chakra gemstones are the best when it comes to connection, love, powerful healing, and acceptance.
To help with your spirituality, Crown chakra gemstones are more appropriate. Third Eye chakra gemstones are intended for higher consciousness and intuition. If you intend to use seven-chakra jewelry, then it can align all chakras together.
Choosing Gemstones and Crystals by Color
Most people are greatly affected by colors, and they don’t even realize it. Ultimately, colors are associated with the various aspects of our life, particularly when it comes to visual aspects. It invades our health, culture, and language.
Colors are commonly used for describing attitudes, emotions, physical well-being, as well as spiritual experiences. That is why it is not surprising that we are attracted to specific colors. Whether it’s the clothes that we wear or the painting on the wall, the colors that we choose can greatly affect us.
Colors include some healing properties, just like the gemstones and crystals that have these particular colors. What is your favorite color? Are there particular colors that you feel attracted to at certain times in your life? Discover the healing properties of a certain color along with healing crystals, healing jewelry, and gemstones that include that color.

Choosing Your Preferred Gemstone
Most often, we are greatly attracted to certain crystals or gemstones at certain times in our lives. Although sometimes it’s mainly because we particularly like the color of the stone, or it could be the way the crystal shines.
