How To Choose a Healing Crystal Bracelet - The Crystal Elephant (2022)

My first healing crystal bracelet is one I treasure. My husband and I were walking around town and ended up in a crystal store. This store not only had a variety of gorgeous healing crystals, they had crystal beads to make crystal bracelets and necklaces.

The owner is this larger than life man who had a long gray beard and wore a necklace of large clear quartz crystal points around his neck. He adorned himself with crystals and was quite the character. We talked to him a bit and asked him about making a bracelet and he showed us what to do.

I was being pulled to the dark, rich blue of lapis lazuli. Lapis has flecks of pyrite in it and reminded me of the night sky. My husband made me a bracelet and added in a few herkimer diamonds. I made him one of matted onyx.

I looked up the meaning of lapis lazuli when I got home and was blown away by the synchronicity of the meaning of the crystal and what I was struggling with at the time. I was struggling with communicating and felt stifled in my creative endeavors.

I wore my healing crystal bracelet everyday and said my daily affirmation while wearing the bracelet. Soon I felt more clear on what I should do next and how to communicate that in my work.

There are many ways to choose a healing crystal bracelet for yourself or someone else. I’ll explain the easiest ways in this post.

Humans and Healing Crystals

How To Choose a Healing Crystal Bracelet - The Crystal Elephant (1)

Crystals are ancient. They were formed in air pockets in the Earth’s crust. They’re shape, color and opacity was created by the environment of those air pockets. We humans treasure these sparkly, shiny beauties obsessively. They’ve been with us throughout our history.

Humans have been making beads and wearing them from the beginning of our time. The Ancient Egyptians commonly wore lapis lazuli, turquoise, carnelian, emerald and quartz for protection and health. Amulets made of baltic amber have been discovered as old as 30,000 years.

Ancient Greeks used them too and many of the names of gemstones and crystals come from Greek words. Amethyst was used to prevent drunkenness and Greek sailors wore Aquamarine crystals to keep them safe at sea. Jade was used widely in Ancient China and is still prized today.

The New Age movement of the 1980’s brought crystals back into focus as a healing tool. It’s become mainstream and widely accepted that crystals can help in healing.

Holding crystals, being near them or wearing them cause them to interact with your body’s energy field, aura and/or chakras.

Everything is made up of energy. Me, you, the desk I’m sitting at, the coffee I drank this morning, my dog, etc. is made of energy.

Quantum theory states that when you examine the tiniest levels of matter, it’s all vibrating strands of energy surrounded by empty space. Energetic fields hold the vibrating strands into the shapes that make up the matter we see and experience as a solid material, like your desk or your hand.

Physically we are energy, our bodily functions, our thoughts and our emotions are all made up of energy. We feel when someone has “good vibes” we enjoy being around that person and in turn their good vibes can affect our mood.

When someone gives us a “bad vibe”, we want to avoid them and get away from that person as soon as possible, right? Or when someone you’re around is in a bad mood, it can affect your own energy and make you feel bad too.

We are energy and other peoples’ energy affects us all the time, everyday. Some are more sensitive to it than others.

Crystals vibrate at different energetic frequencies depending on their shape, color and what they’re made of. If we wear the crystals or place them near us or on our bodies they’re energy can have an impact on our energy field.

Healing crystal jewelry by color

The colors of crystals and their opacity affect their vibration. Color is a result of how your eyes perceive light, which is a vibrational frequency.

Isaac Newton described the spectrum of light that’s visible as an electromagnetic frequency. Color like everything else is another manifestation of energy.

Part of the crystal’s vibrational energy comes from its color, which is associated with our chakras.

There are 7 chakras that run through your body starting from the root chakra at the base of your spine all the way up to your crown chakra above the top of your head. Each chakra is an energy center in your body and is associated with a color.

You can choose a crystal based only on its color to use as a healing crystal for that part of your body.

Instead of trying to remember what every crystal does, you can learn about color to start. This helps simplify choosing healing crystals.

Black Crystals Meaning

Black crystals are associated with the root chakra. The root chakra is located at the base of the spine and is associated with trust, grounding, safety and security. Black crystals are mostly known for their protective properties.

Black crystals are very grounding. If you feel anxious, stressed or overwhelmed, grounding can help calm you and bring you back to the present moment.

Black crystals can protect you from unwanted and negative energies by absorbing the bad energy or transmuting it. This is why some black crystals will break after awhile. They’ve absorbed all they can and can break as a result.

Any black crystal or gemstone will ground and protect you. Here are some common ones.

  • Black tourmaline
  • Onyx
  • Obsidian
  • Apache tears
  • Hematite
  • Shungite
  • Smoky quartz
  • And many more not listed here

Red Crystals Meaning

Red is also associated with the root chakra, but is energizing and will ignite your passion as well as being grounding and protective.

If you want more passion in the bedroom, place a small red crystal near your bed. Since Red is also energizing, too big of a crystal could give you restless sleep.

I like to wear carnelian or garnet crystal bracelets while I work to fuel my passion and energize me.

Here are some common red crystals.

  • Carnelian
  • Garnet
  • Bloodstone
  • Red jasper
  • Rhodonite
  • Ruby
  • And many more.

  • Amber
  • Carnelian
  • Fire opal
  • Orange calcite
  • Sunstone

Choose a healing crystal bracelet by your intuition

Intuition is the ability to understand something immediately without the need for conscious reasoning. It’s your instinct, a gut feeling, a pull or a feeling of being drawn or attracted to something.

I chose the lapis lazuli crystal because I felt drawn to the color and its little flecks of gold and it ended up being exactly what I needed. The feeling I trusted was my intuition.

When I first started my healing crystal journey I would read up on what every crystal meant that I came across. The problem with that was that I would forget what it meant or be overwhelmed by the information.

A friend of mine suggested that I choose by my first impulse or my intuition. I found this to be easier for me and more fun. I swear every time I’m drawn to a crystal, I look up its properties and it’s exactly what I needed.

Slowly i’ve learned about crystals this way and I highly recommend this out for yourself too.

These are just two basic and easy ways to choose a healing crystal bracelet for yourself or a friend. There are other ways to choose too, but I find choosing by color or by intuition are my favorite ways when you’re just starting to learn about crystals.

If you would like some help in choose a healing crystal bracelet, message me and I’ll be happy to offer recommendations.

I’m curious, how did you choose your last healing crystal? Let me know in the comments below.
