For crystal beginner , understanding the most basic crystals will help them understand crystals more deeply. Although the list of people’s favorite crystals will change with life problems and energy needs, there are some crystals that I always recommend, especially for those who are just starting out. Some people own these crystals and often buy them in large quantities in order to carry them with them and distribute them to others. This makes their bags a little heavy, but they like to share the power of these basic crystals with others so that they can also benefit.

You can choose crystals of the right size and shape, but what really matters is the basic characteristics of these crystals, not their size, shape, and appearance.
