Crystal healing - colours and types explained

The majority of crystals are formed through earth’s geological processes and can be found in many forms - rocks, clusters, geodes and cuts. In our store we sell cut crystals and crystals in their rock form. Cut crystals are able to capture more light thereby enhancing the crystals’ energy and their tower shape directs and focuses their energy. In their natural rock form, these crystals have retained their raw energy.


For many of us venturing in the world of crystals for the first time, we become attracted to the vast colours that they come in. It’ll be hard to find one that does not resonate with you. If a crystal absorbs all the light wavelengths, it appears black and if it lets through all the light wavelengths, it appears clear. The chemicals, impurities and minerals affect how much light transmits through the crystal, affecting the colour and how we see it. 

When you have chosen a crystal based on its colour, you are attracted to the vibrational energy of that crystal. Read on to understand why that crystal has resonated with you.
