Natural rock crystals are one of the best feng shui cures for any home or office. Crystals come in many forms and some of them, such as geodes, generators or clusters, truly resemble a work of art. This makes it easier to decorate with crystals when other feng shui cures do not seem acceptable for a specific space. This guide looks into the most popular crystal formations and their best placement in a home or office, starting with crystal clusters.

A crystal cluster—many crystal points emerging from one base—brings the most powerful energy to the area where it is placed. Crystal clusters come in various sizes, from less than an inch (2.54 centimeters) to a foot (30.48 centimeters) or more. Some of the most common, or easiest to find crystal clusters, are the Clear Quartz and the Apophyllite clusters.

Because crystals bring strong Earth feng shui element energy into any space, it is best to place them in bagua areas that are either governed or strengthened by the Earth element. For good feng shui, place your crystal cluster in one of these areas: the Center, Northeast, Northwest, West, or Southwest. It is best to avoid placing your cluster—unless it is really small—in the North bagua area. It is also best to avoid placing your crystal cluster right by your bed.

Crystal Generators

Crystal towers, also called generators, bring strong, grounding feng shui energy that is different from the energy of crystal clusters. While crystal clusters spread energy with a dynamic often resembling fireworks—aiming vibrant energy currents in many directions—the crystal generator works differently.

A crystal tower will uplift and purify the energy (if its point is not damaged), so you can place it in any area that needs to be re-energized with strong energy. If you place your crystal tower in an area with dense, low energy, be sure to cleanse your crystal often. Where would you place a crystal tower for best feng shui? Place it in an area that needs a grounding, stable, secure energy.

Just like the crystal cluster, the generators come in many sizes, some as small as several inches. Along with Clear Quartz Crystal towers, you can also easily find Smoky Quartz and Rose Quartz Crystal towers. If you are lucky and if you have the resources, you can also stumble upon brilliant Aqua Aura Generators or Citrine ones.

Are there feng shui areas where you would not want to place your crystal tower? Having a big heavy tower in the center or heart of the home is not recommended. It is also best not to have a big crystal generator close to the main door because you want Chi, or feng shui energy, to circulate the whole house rather than get grounded in the main entrance. A small crystal tower can be an excellent feng shui energizer close to your computer.

Crystal Geodes

A crystal geode is truly a beauty to behold, a fascinating world in itself. Each crystal formation is, no doubt, uniquely beautiful. However, there is something about the energy of crystal geodes that feels like an endless exploration. Maybe it is because the cave-like shape of the geode has been long associated with meditation and mystery.

Energy-wise, the geode has very powerful absorbing, healing and transforming properties. If there is a crystal formation you would want somewhere close to your main door—especially if your house is on a busy street—then a crystal geode is your best bet.

Amethyst geodes are the most popular (and the easiest to find); they come in various sizes, some as tall as humans! To stand close to a big amethyst geode is to be showered in amazing energy, but do know that even the smallest geodes possess powerful feng shui energy.

You can find them in round, oval, or vertical shapes, and many sizes. Celestite geodes have amazingly gentle, healing energy, and are becoming more and more available today. Feng shui-wise, a small round or oval geode can be an excellent addition to your bedroom or your child's room.
