What crystals work together, what crystals shouldn’t be combined. I haven’t really come across a situation where crystals didn’t work well together, however there are several things I keep in mind when combining crystals.
I feel crystals usually work well together but be cautious of crystals that might have an opposing effect like carnelian for energy, versus blue lace agate or other calming stones.
What is your intention? What it is you seek to do? Narrow down intentions: healing (green aventurine), for bones (calcite) or citrine for tummy issues
Follow your intuition…it’s your compass
Keep it simple…know how the crystals work for you individually before combining.
Common outcomes such as Lepidolite and Lithium Quartz are very calming and have lithium, however be aware that it might be too much of one thing as well.
Color – is a good place to start but there is a lot more to working with crystals than the color frequency alone. You can use a color wheel to view opposing colors as a guide. However sometimes it works out. I use Green Aventurine or Malachite with Red Jasper or other red crystals…they are opposing colors but they work in some circumstances.
Cubic (or isometric) crystal system, based on a square inner structure. - Fluorite, Diamond, Pyrite, Gold, Garnet, Magnetite
Hexagonal Crystals based on a hexagonal (6-sided) inner structure. – Beryl, Emerald, Apatite, Aquamarine, Morganite, Sugilite
Trigonal crystal system (Rhombohedral System) - Based on a triangular inner structure. Quartz, Agate, Aventurine, Jasper, Hematite, Carnelian, Tourmalines, Calcite
Crystal family: I love combining quartz. Rose, Smokey, Citrine, Amethyst, etc. Or combining Agates, Jaspers, Tourmalines, and so on.
