Crystals Explained: Do Healing Crystals Work and How? – Bellabeat

The Healing Power of Crystals
Do They Work, and How?

Crystals — the source of natural energy

People either believe in the healing properties of crystals, or think it’s about as likely to work as picking up a stick from the ground and trying to do magic.

The healing powers and ways to use them might seem like magic but crystals have a scientific-sounding background. While crystals are still viewed as an alternative choice in healing, the explanation for why crystals do what they do actually sounds very logical. In fact, crystals vibrate at their own frequency, the same way that the cells in your body and your chakras vibrate at their own frequency. That means that when we come into contact with crystals these different frequencies meet and enhance your physical, emotional and spiritual balance.



Crystals contain the remarkable ability to transform, absorb, amplify, and transmit.


Energy is everywhere and crystals are the perfect conduit. In fact, the vibrations of crystals are known to change depending on the energy surrounding them, so every stone has a unique and different effect on each individual. Originally, crystal therapy was devised to balance the chakras and transform the energy properties of the body, resulting in a clear and positive energy field. When it comes to crystals, it is believed they would heal and renew the energy that naturally flows inside of you, which would in turn heal your physical body as well.


If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
— Nikola Tesla

You’ve probably heard this before but when choosing your crystal, it’s best to follow intuition and pick the one that calls to you most. With crystals it’s not about which one looks good with that dress you have (but then again, we’ll probably take that into consideration anyway…), it’s about which crystal’s energy resonates with yours the best.

There are quite a few crystals that can be a benefit to your health, in various ways. To name just a few, selenite brings healing and inner peace, moonstone that strengthens intuition, aventurine known to amplify luck... the list goes on, and on.

In this blog post we’ll focus on two - rose quartz and black onyx.

Black Onyx gemstone is a powerful protection stone that absorbs and transforms negative energy. It aids in the development of emotional and physical strength, especially when support is needed in times of stress, confusion or grief. Black Onyx is a strength giving stone that fosters wise decision making and helps with developing healthy habits also by becoming more focused and balanced. This gemstone is also known to help one separate from people or situations that are unhappy or troublesome. Onyx stabilizes, heals, and strengthens the root chakra to help in becoming more grounded, creative and productive in the physical world.

Rose Quartz is known as one of the most important stones for the Heart Chakra, often used for it’s healing properties as it promotes unconditional love. However, it can also be used to balance all of the chakras, and clear them of negative energy. When used with positive self-affirmations it helps build confidence and acceptance. It is also the crystal most often used for it’s healing properties. The energy from this gentle stone can help create an environment in which you will feel nourished, supported and able to go through your daily responsibilities with more ease. It’s a crystal well known for opening the heart to forgiveness and compassion towards self and others. The soothing energy from Rose Quartz also fosters empathy while helping lower stress and tension in the heart. It’s known to bring calm and harmony during stressful times.


Due to their unique healing properties, we decided to utilize Rose Quartz and Black Onyx for the newest edition of our wellness tracker. Leaf Chakra is a smart jewelry piece that has been enhanced with healing crystals, to transform health tracking into the ultimate wellness experience. Well-being isn’t just about activity, or nutrition. It’s a balance between your body, mind and soul, something we want to help you achieve through our ecosystem of wellness products for women.

    I believe in the power of stones. Although your article is fascinating, you have gotten one thing wrong. We should never have a black Crystal or stone close or mix with an other, they won’t work if we do! And stones or gems should always be recharge at moonlight power.

    You may want to brush up on lattice chemistry. Crystals are literally just atoms arranged in an organized solid lattice. Technically, both diamonds and table salt are crystals. Ironically, the items in some of the pictures are just rocks, not crystals. There is absolutely nothing special about their abilities to resonate with the environment. Assuming that vibrations are not meaningless pseudoscience, tuning forks would be far more efficient at changing freaquencies of the area around them. I’m not even going to discuss the ideas about different color crystals having different attributes.

    It’s interesting to learn that the vibrations of crystals change depending on the energy around them. My sister loves crystals and I wanted to get her some for her birthday. I’ll keep this information in mind as I search for the right crystals for my sister.

    I’m new to crystals and using them. I’m just curious how to charge them? I have a couple and will be getting more. Also, how do I use certain ones? Do I have them sit in my house or do I wear them? Thanks for your time.

    The crystals i choose to own of fluorite and amethyst fade to nearly clear. When i gift them they start gaining color again…?
    Why do you think this happens?
    The stones are not dyed or in sun light….

    “crystals have a very scientific sounding background” … really? As scientific as chakras? o_0

    Regarding the bracelet, I would like to ask everyone to give me some suggestions. I visited a good website two days ago. It is a fashion clothing website. I look at a necklace inside. It is beautiful and very special, but the price seems a bit cheap, let me I feel incredible. Let’s take a look.
