Can I use a Clear Quartz crystal to help open all of my chakras?
Question: I have been learning about my Chakras and the elements and stones that go with them. Would a clear Quartz crystal sever as a multipurpose stone to help open my Chakras or do I need an individual stone for each one?
Answer: Yes, Clear Quartz is the most universal crystal. It helps to amplify the energies of other crystals and it is highly programmable to meet your needs. If you can only have 1 crystal, Clear Quartz would be the one to get. Clear Quartz is a storm element, which means that it is connected to all of the elemental energies. I would recommend that you get a natural point, which can be used to move and direct the chakra energies. When I do crystal healing sessions I use a crystal that corresponds to the chakra, like Citrine for the Solar Plexus, and then I use a natural Clear Quartz point to cleanse and balance the chakra's energies.
Although you do not need to have 1 crystal per chakra, I do feel that it is a very good thing to do. The color and energy from the crystal for that chakra will be at the right energetic frequency. You can typically get a starter chakra kit for a relatively inexpensive price. In fact, I have a basic chakra set available. If you cannot get a crystal for a specific chakra, Clear Quartz can be used as a substitute.
