The chakras are spirals of light that bring energy into the body and remove old energy from the body. There are seven major chakras that most people work with. Crystal Life provides you with products that can clear, balance and soothe the chakras. The jewelry selections offer gemstones associated with the different chakras that have already been brought together for your use. You can also visit our Chakra Room to browse various chakra products and educational materials.
Use clear quartz crystal for all chakras. Agates, Jaspers, Calcites, Tourmalines, Fluorites, and Quartz come in many natural colors and can be used with the chakras whose color they relate to. All stones seek to harmonize and balance energy in some beneficial way, and their individual qualities may or may not be useful for you at any particular time. If you feel a certain stone should or should not be used with a chakra, regardless of color or type, go with your instincts.
