For decades crystals have been known to have healing powers but recently they have been becoming more and more popular with the trends of wellness taking over our lives. To this day they are used for religious and healing rituals and recently people have started using them in their daily lives, bringing them to their workplace, in their homes, or even keeping some gemstones in their pockets as good-luck charms.
You can have them as clusters, as jewellery, as thumb stones, palm stones and in many other forms suitable to the way you want to use your crystals. Proven to be effective by many, here are 10 crystals you need in your life to achieve that wellness.
