50 Ways To Use Crystals

Over the last few years, I’ve become completely obsessed with crystals and gemstones. I want to own every crystal ever, in raw and tumbled form; I want to cover my house in geodes! As with anything, the more you dive into it, the more you learn about it. I wanted to make a post about what you can actually do with crystals. I know using crystals is pretty “woo”, and most of the time people who aren’t into it aren’t aware of the things you can actually do with them, so I made a list of ways you can use crystals, including some suggestions of which crystals are the best for each scenario.
