“Rose quartz is the strong­est stone for cre­at­ing har­mony in re­la­tion­ships with fam­ily, friends and lovers,” says Jes­sica Sea­man, founder of lux­ury can­dle brand Lara Quin. In­tu­itive healer Emmy-lou Knowles adds, “It’s also good for your skin. [Some] prac­ti­tion­ers of Chi­nese medicine be­lieve spots are caused by fears. Rose quartz helps to ease emo­tions.”

Feel­ing a lit­tle off kil­ter? The spiked star clus­ters of arag­o­nite will bal­ance you out. “Be­cause of their form, the rocks can ra­di­ate en­ergy in all di­rec­tions,” says au­thor Lau­rey Simmons. She also rec­om­mends arag­o­nite for its calm­ing prop­er­ties. “It can help sup­port com­pas­sion­ate com­mu­ni­ca­tion, self­ex­pres­sion and med­i­ta­tion.” So you can squash stress and boost your in­ner Zen.

It’s a med­i­ta­tive and calm­ing stone that’s meant to pro­mote bal­ance and peace, along with emo­tional sta­bil­ity and in­ner strength. “Amethyst is good for treat­ing in­som­nia and grief, as it neu­tralises neg­a­tive en­ergy,” says Knowles. “It also soft­ens the ner­vous sys­tem.” Bye-bye, ten­sion.

Wor­ried about what your tech­nol­ogy ad­dic­tion might be do­ing to your health? Ac­cord­ing to Simmons, black tour­ma­line can guard you from “elec­tric smog” (aka the elec­tro­mag­netic ra­di­a­tion emit­ted by your mo­bile and wifi) and ward off neg­a­tive en­er­gies from your home. “Crys­tals trans­mit sig­nals all the time,” says Knowles. “These ef­fec­tively cre­ate a bar­rier be­tween you and man-made tech­no­log­i­cal en­ergy.”

“Moon­stone is a moth­er­ing, nur­tur­ing stone,” ex­plains Sea­man. “It’s good for new be­gin­nings, re­lax­ation and help­ing you tune into your psy­chic abil­i­ties. It’s also a great healer dur­ing preg­nancy.”
