Crystal Combinations

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.
  • Crystal structure:
    • 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.
  • Research: crystal structures or what is the structure of……
  • The elements: Not an area I am overly trained in but it’s something to do further research on.  Different cultures/philosophy but for example there is  Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit
    • Air/wind Stones - Amethyst, Fluorite, Selenite, Labradorite, Sugilite
    • Fire Stones - Amber, Carnelian, Citrine, Fire Agate, Fire Opal, Red Jasper,  Sunstone
    • Earth Stones - Agate, Jade, Halite, Hematite, Jasper, Jet, Onyx, Obsidian, Black Tourmaline,  Garnet, Pyrite
    • Water Stones - Amethyst, Aquamarine, Moonstone, Blue Lace Agate, Celestite, Chalcedony, Chrysocolla, Pearl, Sea Salt, Selenite, Rose Quartz, Larimar
    • Spirit / Naisha Ashian has Storm as an element so it varies: Apophyllite, Danburite, Diamond, Phenacite (Phenakite), Clear Quartz
  • General guideline mix fire with air and earth with water, example (FIRE) Carnelian/Citrine and (WATER) Blue Lace Agate, may not be a great combo.
  • Naisha Ahsian Crystal Ally Cards is a great resource to learn about crystals and the elements.
