The first 5 Crystals for Beginners 4 comments

In our last post, we read about how to clean and clear the energy field of your crystals. You can read it here. And the post about how to choose a crystal can be read here.

So, today I would like to share a few crystals for beginners.

If you are new to crystals then you might feel overwhelmed about which one to buy. There are hundreds of crystals. And you want the one that you could use to just start your crystal journey with.

In the post “How to know your unique crystal”, I have already told some easy and perfect tips about how you choose a crystal by accessing your intuition.

Even after that post you feel confused about which one of so many is better for you, then you must read this list of 5 crystals.


The First 5 Crystals


Out of hundreds of crystals, there are a few common ones which can be used by anyone and anytime. I would like to write the details about these crystals as I felt them. If you want to read more or more bookish information about these crystals then you can search the internet.

Here is the list of 5 crystals which I feel you must start your crystal journey with:


1. Clear Quartz

This white {almost} transparent crystal is one of the most used and powerful crystals. It is an all-rounder. I believe there is no area in which Clear Quartz could help you. You just need to cleanse it and program it to heal your world.    Clear Quartz_crystal

Quartz is everywhere. We use it daily in many electronic things. There is no watch which is made without quartz. It is used in saving information. Computers use quartz as well. And so, Clear Quartz is used to accumulate information. It can save all the information. The information could be accessed at the psychic level.

Clear quartz could bring clarity of mind. If you are overwhelmed and feeling uneasy, you could use it for calmness and clarity of mind. This crystal is powerful and if you want quick help then this is the best one to choose. It clears all the lower energies from any place and aura.

You can balance and clear any chakra using a clear quartz wand. This crystal is usually associated to the crown chakra and third eye chakra, but could be used to clear any chakra at any time.

Clear quartz is one of those highly powerful vibrating crystals which could accommodate its energy according to the user. I have used it on myself and my 6-year-old son as well. And it changed the power of its vibrations and energy according to both of us within a few minutes of the gap.

So, this crystal is best to be introducing to your children of any age. This could help them study calmly. Clear quartz can bring alertness to students. And if you use it on a regular basis it could help with your hyperactive children. It could be kept under their pillow to bring clear and peaceful dreams. This works great with sensitive children.

Clear quartz is great to bring universal and spiritual awareness in your life. Spending 15 minutes in meditation with this crystal could help you connect to the real source of all beings. Meditate with it daily.


2. Rose Quartz

Another variety of Quartz. This is beautiful soft pink in color. Rose quartz is related to the heart chakra. And it is a stone of love. It brings love to your heart chakra. It has the vibrations of unconditional love. And it brings the love so powerfully that all the fear goes away if you use it every day. Rose Quartz_crystal

Rose quartz is used to clear any blockages in any relationships. If there is anyone whom you feel bad about or who doesn’t approve you, then you could try this crystal. This crystal has powerful soothing vibes. It calms down the crying or suffering emotions. Due to its peaceful vibrations it is good for flaming and eczema types of problems. It calms down the burning sensations.

I love to meditate with this crystal to bring peace or when I feel overwhelmed after absorbing many vibes around. I am a sensitive and needs aura clearing frequently. But when I forget this process I just spend 15-20 minutes with my raw piece of Rose Quartz. It helps me to get calm faster and I could concentrate more easily on clearing my aura rather than feeling drained.

It works very fast on heartaches and broken heart. The best crystal I feel for little kids. Sensitive kids feel great in the company of this crystal. This keeps their heart open and healed. I feel crystals like Clear quartz and Rose quartz are best ones to introduce you children at young age. They have powerful yet calming vibes for any age of children.


3. Amethyst

This is the one crystal I always loved. I came across a picture of a cluster of Amethyst and since then I just love to keep it close to me.Amethyst_crystal

Amethyst has rather higher vibrations. It is associated with Third eye and crown chakra. And it helps in opening the connections with universal energy. This crystal brings clear dreams. And could do wonders if you are ready to work with high universal energies. Amethyst is a stone to clear mind. I felt its energy pretty powerful and of higher vibrations.

If you are not an empath or you give this crystal to a person who doesn’t work with high vibrations, then you might not feel its energy. But it works on the subtle note with these people. So it will bring its magic slowly with less empath people.

And I think it’s the best crystal to start your crystal journey with because it starts with connecting you to the universal energy. I started my crystal journey with this crystal only.

I never experiment amethyst’s energy with my son’s energy, but I think kids could work with this crystal as they are pure souls at a younger age. {Oh! If you don’t know I work with energies of people. I sense their energy. And that’s how I know which crystal my son picks up and why.}


4. Moonstone

The power of moon and calmness too. I love this crystal which comes in different shades like, peach, light brown, very light pinkish to cream and white. No matter which color you choose, you will feel it’s peaceful vibes instantly. I love to rub my fingers on my moonstone tumble stone when I feel stuck or overwhelmed. It brings clear thoughts. MoonStone_crystal

Whenever I need inspiration or clear guidance I work with this beautiful crystal. {May be coz I am a Cancerian and moonstone and pearl are my birthstone}.

Just like the name it has the power like the moon. It will bring shiny light on your darkest days. And it will help you feel safe on those scary dark nights. Yes, it brings peace to an extent level and super fast. I feel it working on my heart chakra. But it relates to Sacral chakra.

This crystal will work for you as a guiding stone. If you are new to crystals this one is yet another best one to choose as your first crystal. When you start meditating with this crystal you will get a beautiful open vision towards material world. You could feel safe about your connection to this world.

It brings calming effects to your mind. It also calms the anger. And if you are born in cancer sun sign then this one is best to keep with you.  So, try it and meditate with it.


5. Citrine

Citrine comes in different shades of Yellow. It is associated with Solar-Plexus Chakra.

This is one of those crystals which needs no cleansing in particular and yet clear the energy field of other crystals. So if you keep a chunk of citrine with your other crystals you will feel less need of clearing and cleansing them. Citrine_crystal

Citrine comes with the power of the sun. And yes I have felt it. I asked my sister to put it on my mom’s knee and to do reiki. My mom’s knee had unbearable pain. And when she tried it the pain went away faster.

Meditating with this crystal will bring clarity about your inner power. This will help you open up your energy center that is Solar-Plexus chakra. And once this chakra is clear you will be able to accept your powers. You would feel in control and at ease with all that you do.

And while experimenting with its association of sun’s energy I kept it on my Third Eye chakra, within few minutes I felt a powerful energy field around my head enveloping and working on my third eye and crown chakra.

So, although it is related to Solar-Plexus Chakra, you can meditate with it to bring clearance and light to any chakra. And that is why I included it into this list.



So, here are the 5 crystals, that beginners could start with.  Different crystal therapists feel different things about crystals and there are lots of articles about choosing crystals and using them. I added the ones I felt would help in the commencement of your crystal journey. But, you could have some totally different crystal that you liked as the new crystal lover.

Not a problem.

If you feel any other crystals that a beginner could use then comment about it. You can also put your favorite crystal that you used as the first one on your crystal journey.

Keep commenting so that readers could get more knowledge.

With love,

    Hi Kirti. Thanks for this wonderful piece of knowledge you have shared. The first crystal i bought was a rose quartz. Its baby pink colour and association with love was an instant attraction. Now im learning more about crystals through you. I have one basic question. In your articles you frequently use the term “work with them” or “use this crystal to…”. What exactly do u mean? How do we work with our chosen crystal and how do children use them? Thanks and look forward to more or your knowledgable writings. Love, azmi

    Hello Azmi,

    Thank you so much for liking the articles.

    When I use work with them or use your crystals to…. I meant that accompany that particular crystal with you throughout the day, meditate with them and rub them a few times throughout the day. These are a few ways to use crystal and this connect them to your energy and vice versa. By keeping them with you, you can get benefits of the crystal in your life.

    Hope this helped you.

    When you are near crystals in a shop or somewhere the one which resonates with your energy will attract your attention. And that is the one which you could start with. Otherwise you could choose any one of the above crystals to start with. Clear Quartz is the one that resonates with everyone’s energy. start with only one or two.

    Thank you.
