Hello, beautiful spirits! I hope ya’ll are having a wonderful day! I pulled out my chakra crystal set that I put together earlier because I really just feel like I need a good cleansing and healing for all my chakras. Hey, it happens! As I pulled them out, I figured I would share with ya’ll which crystals I use. I used to use my small tumbled crystals and would use up to three per chakra but gradually I ended up purchasing a rough stone for each chakra–which hadn’t been my intention when buying them. Only one of them is tumbled in my pouch. Personally I think it’s easier to feel and really connect with the energy of rougher stones than the smooth, tumbled ones. Either work perfectly well.
My pouch I keep them in is my favorite just because I actually like the feel of it. It actually was a gift pouch that contained a packet of hot cocoa when my mom gave me a hot cocoa gift set one Christmas! 🙂 I’m not sure what sort of fabric it is but it doesn’t matter. I cleansed and consecrated it before ever using it for magickal purposes.
To begin, I have Red Jasper for the Root Chakra which is by far my pick for this chakra. The stone has a wonderful energy and it’s become one of my favorite stones that I’ve actually named it Big Papa! haha, it always makes me laugh when I tell myself I need to pull Big Papa out! For those who don’t know a whole lot about the chakras, the root chakra is located at the base of the spine and is related to the element of earth. I don’t want to go into too much detail in this post regarding the chakras as I’m planning on doing a post on them individually. The color for this chakra is crimson red which is another reason I love Red Jasper as it matches the color vibrations of the chakra as well. This chakra deals with survival, security, and grounding. It is our energetic foundation.
The next chakra is the sacral which is about creativity, energy, and sexuality and is located at the lower abdomen, so close to the womb area. It’s color is vermillion orange and for this charka I like carnelian. The carnelian I have for it is more of a brownish color than a bright orange like most carnelian seen. I’ve had great experiences with both of these types of stones.
The Solar Plexus is above the naval, between the naval and sternum, and deals with our personal power. Its element is fire and the planet its associated with is the sun. The color for this chakra is yellow and I love citrine for this chakra. However, I’ve recently begun to experiment with Honey Calcite which I have in my set. If you haven’t seen this stone before, it literally looks like a slab of frozen honey! It’s beautiful and very happy of a stone.
Located in the center of the chest which makes it very easy to remember is the heart chakra. This chakra deals with unconditional love, healing, and nurturing. While you would naturally assume the color for this chakra is pink, which can be used, its traditionally green. When I first begun working with this chakra, I was like green doesn’t feel right. I don’t really resonate with it so I worked exclusively with pink which did work. Therefore, my stone of choice had been–take a guess!–rose quartz. We all know the loving and gentle energy of this stone which is why it’s such a wonderful choice for this chakra. Associating it now with green I use Green Aventurine.
Continuing up the body, we come to the throat chakra which is located, yup, at the throat–base of the neck. It’s color is blue, especially a sky blue. This chakra deals with communication, self-expression, and speech. The planetary rulers are Mercury and Neptune. I’ve used blue calcite for this chakra which worked well, especially since it matches the light blue color but now I prefer sodalite which is becoming another favorite. I have too many favorites apparently.
I think the next chakra is one of the most known and probably most popular even though people may not realize its a chakra. The brow or third eye is located between and slightly above the eyebrows. This deals with intuition, self-knowledge, and wisdom. The color is Indigo and perhaps the most common stone used for this chakra, which I also use, is amethyst. If you’ve seen my top five crystals, you know I love me some amethyst. The planetary association is Jupiter.
The final chakra is the crown which is located a couple of inches above the top of the head. It deals with our Higher Consciousness, connection to the Divine and All That Is, and spirituality. It’s color is violet although some people prefer white or rainbow. When I first began working with the chakras I used clear quartz for this but now I like to use selenite and actually have a small piece that I keep in a small bag within the brown pouch to try to keep it from chipping or anything since the other stones are very rough and hard.
I hope ya’ll enjoyed this post and comment to let me know what stones you use! 🙂
Brightest of Blessings!

I do hope to update this post later with a much better photo! 🙂
