What are Raw Crystals?
When a crystal is sleeping in the womb of mother earth, the energy vibrations around it are unique and special. Miners dig it out, cleanse it and send it to collectors for sale. During that process, the crystal has been dug out of nature’s womb and hence the energy has changed drastically.
Raw Crystals Meanings can be explained as the most native or natural form of a crystal.
Pros of Raw Crystals

The magical powers of a natural pointe exceed the powers of a polished crystal wand as it is designed by nature to be a wand, unlike the other crystal. Sometimes, polishing forces a crystal to make unnatural shapes too, which creates conflicting energies.
Cons of Raw Crystals
The biggest problem with raw gemstones in their natural form is that they are sharp and needs cleansing, physically and spiritually. It can harm your skin and cause injuries if you wear a raw crystal jewelry that is sharp at the edges.

What are Polished Crystals?
A gemstone in its raw form is collected by jewelers to polish it. They can be cut into desired shapes. Moreover, often a raw crystal is found in a bed of impurities. There are stories where you clean the impurities weighing a pound or two and end receiving a crystal of just a carat or two. That’s why, you never know the purity of a raw crystal, until you polish it.

Polished gemstones are easy to use for crystal rituals. They pose little to no danger when wearing unless you wear a cracked stone. Moreover, polished stones such as crystal wands are easy to focus energy when you’re working with a crystal grid.
Cons of Polished Crystals
