    The Basics

    Before we get into how to start your own crystal collection, let’s cover a few basics. Namely, what crystals are and where they come from.

    Crystals are natural elements that form deep within the earth. This process can occur over periods of hundreds to even millions of years. As crystal collecting has become more popular, lab-made versions have also been created to help keep up with demand.

    A true crystal contains a grouping of cells that form a system with a unique lattice pattern. Six different patterns can occur inside a crystal: hexagonal, isometric, monoclinic, orthorhombic, tetragonal, and triclinic. There is also a subsection of “amorphous crystals” – like amber, obsidian, and opals – which aren't considered true crystals because they lack an identifiable shape.

    Crystals can also be classified by their color, which is a result of three factors – how the crystal absorbs light, any impurities it might have, and the specific minerals or chemicals within it. Beside creating an attractive look on the outside, a crystal’s color also corresponds to the healing properties it holds.

    Both natural and man-made crystals carry unique energetic properties and can be used for crystal healing. But because natural crystals take much longer to form, most collectors consider their vibrations to be more powerful.

    The popularity of crystal healing really began to surge around 40 years ago, so it’s easy to think of it as a modern practice. In reality, people have been using the vibrational powers of crystals for centuries.

    Throughout history, many ancient civilizations prized crystals for their ability to cleanse, uplift, and balance energy fields. This continued up until the Renaissance when rumors began to spread that some crystals were associated with “bad angels.”

    In recent years, crystal collecting has once again become a popular hobby for people of all ages and walks of life. As modern-day stress and burnout have become endemic, many people have also turned to crystals as a form of natural healing.
