About This Quiz

Although indigenous communities like the Hawaiian Islanders and Hopi Native Americans have utilized crystal healing in their ceremonial practices for generations, many others in the U.S. didn't adopt such practices until the onset of New Age spiritual movements. Such spiritual followers often view crystals as vessels of creative expression and individuation; they also believe these stones can heal the body, mind and spirit.

Whether or not you believe in the healing powers of crystals, learning your particular type may help you become more connected to yourself. Sure, many feel skeptical as to the magical properties of a hunk of mineral — but perhaps you can imbue it with a bit of "magic" of your own. Just as every person has a birthstone, everyone also possesses a unique crystal type that reflects their special place in the world.

Let's face it: everyone's a little lost, but perhaps your crystal can show you the light.If you want to learn which stone reflects your soul, simply answer the following questions. Are you a powerful, jet-black chunk of obsidian or a clear-as-glass piece of quartz? Do you love and nurture like the verdant jasper or burn with passion like a bloodstone? The answers very well may rock your socks off ...
