The Best Beginner Crystals and Stones

Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz can be programmed to do just about anything another stone can do. It resonates with all chakras, zodiacs, and planets. CQ is on its Libra vibes. It is beautiful and mesmerizing. The only catch is, this is one of the stone that has to be cleansed frequently.

Selenite, because it is one of the few stones that can cleanse other stones without having to be cleansed itself after. Selenite correlates with the energies of the moon.


Amethyst is well known for its attractive purple color. Spiritualists like me flock to amethyst enhancing intuition abilities and is a staple for psychic protection.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is another stone that is well known by its color. RQ is used to attract love for self and others. You know, matters of the heart.

Pyrite is also known as the “money stone” (not in those exact words). It aids in bringing abundance to merchants/entrepreneurs. Pyrite resembles gold. It might make you do a double take to see it as a pendant on a necklace.

Black Tourmaline

You always need a Protection stone right? Black Tourmaline is a great start because it protects from a list of unwanted energies. Being a grounding stone, Black Tourmaline aids in decreasing the buildup of spiritual waste.
