Crystal necklaces made from higher chakra crystals cleanse, heal and strengthen. For instance, amethyst and clear quartz help purify your mind, body, and soul, while lower chakra crystals, like citrine, awaken your inner power.

When used properly, crystal necklaces can make you wiser, stronger , luckier, and more charming and empathic. Crystal vibrations jewelry really makes a difference in your life. 

But, before you learn the best crystals for your needs, do you know how to wear crystals? Wearing crystals as jewelry, that aligns with the seven major chakras, keeps them tuned until you take them off. 

It’s important to cleanse crystal necklaces before and after wearing them to remove negativity absorbed by them during rituals. Cleansing rejuvenates crystals like bathing does to our bodies. 

Make sure to use the help of the sunlight, moonlight, water, salt, rice, soil, or wands, to cleanse your new crystal necklaces before wearing them. 

Once you’re done cleansing, hold your crystal necklace in your cupped hands and meditate for a few moments, to set your intention before wearing it. This technique is called charging, and helps to manifest your intentions.

So, which are your favorite crystals to wear as necklaces?
