How to choose the right Crystals or Gemstones for you?

Updated: Oct 18, 2021

Crystals and Gemstones have been our companions for a very long time! They have been used in jewelry, clothing, and furniture since the beginning of mankind, and traces of them can be found in ancient Egypt, the Roman empire, Aztec, etc. In this blog post, we will be discussing how to choose which of the many different crystals and gemstones is the right one for you...

You can find a lot of articles and posts on the internet showing the different crystals associated with your zodiac sign, specific intentions, different illnesses, or even spell work. And they can all be true and very interesting, but, the only concern we (@SmeRuci) have, is that it has become a way to manipulate people into buying certain products, or increase the value of specific gemstones and crystals. With the new age movement and more people being interested in spirituality, there has been a rise in sales regarding articles related to crystals and gemstones, and the most effective way of selling these items is to please the EGO. By saying that this crystal belongs to YOU because you are an Aries or an Aquarius, it makes you automatically drawn on having something with this specific crystal, and POOF, you made a purchase. But is this truly the right way?

This is a very controversial topic in the realm of crystal shops because anything that involves beliefs, personal feelings, and experiences, is ambiguous. Therefore on different sites, you can find different descriptions, properties, and uses for the same crystal. What is true and what is false? Nobody can say it for certain... Because every one of us is unique, therefore, everyone has their own experiences with different crystals and gemstones.


So how are we supposed to choose the right one?

All Crystal healing experts unite in this, being the best way to choose the crystal that you need, and is right for you. Without knowing anything regarding the specific properties of specific crystals, go into a crystal shop. See all the different Crystals and Gemstones displayed there, and feel which one you are drawn more into. You can just look at them or if it is possible with much care, touch them and see what feelings it brings to you. Whichever one you like more is the right one! Only YOU have the right power to choose the Crystal you need in that specific time of your life.

I know right? Such a un climax moment!

We hope that this article was helpful to you somehow. We thought to make it because we would like to focus more on the magical part of crystals/gemstones rather than the materialistic aspect. It would be more beneficial to our sales if we used the crystal properties as a strategy to sell, but we choose to focus more on the design and work behind the creations of our jewelry. The crystals and gemstones are a very beautiful and magical extra...

Love and Light from SmeRuci...
