Feng Shui Crystals A-Z: Meaning and Properties

The Spruce / Anastasia Tretiak

Crystals have been used with much success in feng shui because they bring precious energy most of us need daily. All crystals bring potent earth energy, as they all come from deep within the earth.

In addition to this base energy of the Earth feng shui element, each crystal carries a specific ray or quality of energy; let's call them properties that are uniquely expressed in its color, physical structure, and even the locality it came from. I sometimes think of the feng shui use of crystals as energy vitamins because they bring specific nourishment to you and your space.

As feng shui is all about creating good energy, it goes without saying that crystals are one of the most popular feng shui cures for any space—be it home, garden or office. Even though several traditional feng shui crystals have been used in feng shui for many centuries, you should not limit yourself only to the ones you see in classical feng shui cures.

Just because the geosphere of China reveals an abundance of jade, for example, this does not mean that potent crystals from other corners of the earth cannot be used for good feng shui. All good energy activators can be used, as this leads to a truly successful (and intelligent) feng shui application.
