The Power of Gemstones
At Energy Muse, our gemstones and crystals have healing properties that help to balance the body, mind, and spirit.
Healing crystals and gemstones have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations; the Egyptians, Aztecs, and others incorporated healing stones into jewelry, cosmetics, decorative statues, amulets, and much more—a testament to the powerful ability of gemstones to release mental, physical, and spiritual blockages.
Both our bodies and healing crystals have energetic vibrations, which makes us naturally receptive to the vibrations of gemstones as they can align our own vibrations with theirs. This is why healing crystals and gemstones have a powerful vibratory effect when placed directly on your body. This energy surges from the crystal to you, which facilitates the free flow of energy throughout the body.
Our gemstones and healing crystals serve as a tool to help connect our conscious thoughts with our body. With healing stones, the real game-changer is when you program them with a specific intention for transformation. Thoughts can be powerful because they direct energy and energy follows thought. And when you use gemstones in the process, their frequencies help to magnify those thoughts and intentions. In the mineral kingdom, there are many different crystal meanings that support a range of intentions, from wealth and abundance, balance and vitality, rest and relaxation, and more.

Individual Crystal Meanings
FILTER CRYSTALS BY LETTER:
Types of Gemstones
The definition of a crystal is a group of atoms that repeat themselves over and over again, making up a crystalline structure of various formations. This steady rhythm falls in sync with the healing vibrations of Earth, which can help balance and realign our energy centers.
Nature’s stunning jewelry box, the mineral kingdom, includes hundreds of different types of healing stones, from rough rocks to delicate specimens with a polished luster.
Raw Or Rough Crystals
Rough or raw crystals like Amethyst and Rose Quartz are the untouched chunks of rock that come from the Earth. When left in their natural state, you can connect with them at a deeper level. The gentle and diffused energy can have a subtle effect on a room or emotional state.
Clusters & Geodes
With a hollow formation filled with crystals, clusters and geodes are beautiful to look at and also have powerful frequencies. Even a small or medium size geode can have a significant calming and purifying effect on a room.
Gemstone slices are thinly cut and polished pieces of rock that reveal the inner beauty of crystals and their unique structure of marbled bands. You can display these stunning pieces as decoration, which will also add peaceful and calming energy to a room.
Points Or Wands
Often used as a healing tool, the shape of points and wands make them excellent energy transmitters. The single and double-terminated quartz adds to its cleansing and purifying properties.
Crystals and Astrology
Another way to find the best healing stone is with astrology, which uses the movement and position of the planets and stars to determine their influence on your spirit. When you combine this ancient practice with healing crystals, you’ll be able to find the perfect stones for spiritual transformation.
For example, Moonstone resonates with the natural rhythm of the cancer sign. Find the best crystals for your sign and what they mean in our Crystals and Astrology blog section.
CRYSTALS BY INTENTION
When choosing a crystal, be thoughtful about your intention, which will help lead you to the perfect stone that you need in that particular moment. By focusing on your needs, you can find the best stone that resonates with certain feelings and emotions. In the book Crystal Muse by Energy Muse founders Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro, you’ll find a gemstones list that is organized by intention, from health and communication to prosperity, focus and much more. When you use the high frequencies of healing crystals in your everyday life, it can have a profound effect on your well-being. Whether you want to shift negative thoughts, attract love, or live in abundance, , gemstones can serve as a reminder to stay focused on your intention while also cleansing and activating your energy.
INTENTIONS AND THE MEANING OF NUMBERS
After working with crystals for nearly 30 years, we have found that understanding the meaning of numbers can also increase the power of your intentions. For example, saying your intention once signifies new beginnings while repeating it eight times symbolizes wealth and power. From 1 to 10, each number has a meaning, from boosting harmony to encouraging action. You can learn more about numbers and what they represent in the Crystal Muse book, which goes into more depth. You can also learn more about crystals and their healing properties from our Gemstones list, which includes a description of their healing effects, history, and lore, and how to incorporate their frequencies into your daily wellness routine:
