Crystals Used in Magick
Crystals, or stones, all have their own attributes. They're often used to promote healing, provide protection, absorb unwanted energies, and to promote desired energies. The crystals naturally have these energies within them.
Those who wish to use them for a specific purpose do so by charging them. Charging a stone can be elaborate--in a spell or ritual--or simple, such as by holding the stone while focusing on the attributes desired and for what purpose.
For example, you may hold a piece of black tourmaline in your hand and focus on its ability to absorb negative energy in your home. Once charged, you place it in the most desired area for that effect to take place and the crystal does its work.
Periodically, stones will need to be cleansed. Once cleansed, the stones are ready to be charged and used again. There are various techniques for this and commonly include:
Hold under running, cold water
Bury in the ground or a bowl of sand
Set out in sunlight or moonlight
The following list provides the basic attributes of a variety of crystals, stones, and metals in magick and healing work.
For more information on how to use the stones for these purposes, see Cunningham's Crystal, Gem & Metal Magic, Jackson & Jackson's Simply Crystals, and Hall's The Crystal Bible or visit your local rock or metaphysical store for assistance.
