Today is the day I will answer all your questions on how to use raw crystals for therapy with the example of 11 step-by-step methods to use it in everyday life.

Are you ready to start? Because I don’t want you to be distracted when you are learning about the most natural form of crystals. I feel like the energy shift can cost you the enlightenment of raw crystals; so, finish your chores and bookmark this post so that you can read it one flow.

Let’s begin!

Raw Crystals Vs Polished Crystals

Natural White Coral Ornament

From crystal users to newbies, this is a common question that aches many people. Are rough crystals as good as polished stones? Does anything happen to a polished stone that it's less powerful than a raw crystal? Which is the best stone to work with when you are starting out on the crystal path- rough or polished?

Rest assured; I am going to clear all your questions today.  

Psst … if you liked any stones in the pictures below, just click on it to buy it right away!

What are Raw Crystals?

Aragonite Crystal Cluster

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

As rough stones in their natural form are unaltered, it is pure and unblemished. It contains unadulterated energies and can be really powerful as it’s not refined. You can use it for a variety of crystal rituals seamlessly.

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.

Always check the jewelry by rubbing your hand on the raw crystal jewelry if it’s right for wearing before you do so.

What are Polished Crystals?

Natural Colorful Striped Fluorite Pendant

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.

Pros of Polished Crystals

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

Altered energy of polished crystals makes it slightly different from the polished variety of gemstones. Rough crystals often contain powerful energy that is not altered, hence ideal for special crystal rituals too.  

What about a Raw Crystal Cluster? How powerful is it?

Black Tibetan Quartz Cluster

A crystal cluster is a natural form of gemstone clustered with the power of multiple points into one. “Clusters made of crystals combine diverse energies at once”.

An Aragonite Crystal Cluster, when kept on your desk, can help you clear energy blocks in a wink. On the other hand, a Black Quartz Cluster Crystal is excellent to dispel the negative energies aimed at you. When you use a Cluster of Amethyst Crystal, it grounds you to think straight without confusions.

A beautiful cluster, Celestite Crystal Cluster is ideal to communicate with angelic beings. Using a Clear Quartz Cluster Gemstone can help you purify the energy at your home and keep it clean all the time. If you’re looking for gemstones to attract focus, Cluster of Citrine Gems is the best solution. Keeping a White Coral Cluster on your dressing table will enhance your makeup regimen to help you glow throughout the day!

Is a Geode a Raw Crystal?

Raw Crystal Quartz Cluster/Geode

Hollow gemstones often exist with sparkly substances. Without the shimmer, it’s not a geode. A geode means earth like which exist with druzy hollow cavities. They are ideal to recharge, cleanse and activate or program gemstones powerfully.

Geodes are harmonizing gemstones with a unique identity”. They are extremely powerful and ideal for crystal users who don’t have time to cleanse or recharge a large number of stones.

How to Use Raw Crystals for Therapy of Healing

I had these same questions when I began working with crystals too. It’s my experiences that helped me understand the power of these crystals. To be honest, I was drawn to rough and natural stones because of their unmarred beauty. With time, I encountered powers that stunned me and today I will teach you about those same powers too.

@Ceida, my 5ct Indian baby is a proper, rich Emerald-green with no black inclusions. Its power level is very high, but its energy is very gentle. It teams well with my Alexandrite, Aquamarine, Morganite, Heliodor and Petalite pendants. It’s bezel-set in Sterling silver and artisan-created.

It’s an adventurous little angel! I have a raw Russian Emerald, mined in the Ural Mts; that one is more of a homebody, but the Indian one likes to explore. We had to move last September (our landlord ran into an inheritance tax problem to the tune of £500,000; selling up was his only option), and I’ve had to keep a close eye on it since because it has a habit of wandering around our new place 😁

Love and Light.

Wow, you’ve got an Indian Emerald. How is the color and power?
actually, I was just thinking about making a post on inflammation protection crystals! Thank you, Cher.

Wow, Cherry I will try that with citrine too.


December 28, 2018

Ceida, for inflammation, I use Emerald and Aquamarine. I have an Indian Emerald pendant, a 5-carat oval-faceted beauty set in Sterling silver. It has quite a few “jardin” inclusions, but that simply proves it’s a natural, Earth-born gem (usually it doesn’t bother me if a gem is lab-grown, as you know, but in this particular case I felt it important to have an Emerald born of Mother Earth).

Oh, while we’re on the subject of lab-grown vs natural crystals, I think my Petalite and I have worked out something that may help explain your discomfort with the lab-grown sort: whereas natural crystals come pre-programmed with millennia of healing knowledge which Mother Earth has taught them while they were “in the womb”, lab-grown crystals lack that pre-programming, and they have to be taught what to do.

I wonder if – without meaning to impune you in any way whatsoever – that’s why you sense a better light from natural crystals?


December 20, 2018

Ceida, my Heliodor pendant and tumblestone are near-constant companions: I only left them off yesterday because they needed a charge/cleanse, and because the new Petalite pendant arrived and needed some exclusive bonding time (which is something I make a point of doing with a new crystal, keeping it within my auric field but not employing any other crystal, not even the same kind, until the bond is complete, which is indicated by my feeling as if I’d been the stone’s caretaker for years).

I normally keep the tumblestone in my bra, which led me to discover the amazing effects of this crystal on my heart chakra: it makes me more compassionate, emotionally aware and emotionally ‘warm’ than I’ve ever been. Between the 11 faceted Helidors in the pendant, plus the boosting Clear Zircon accent gems, and the tumblestone, I can fight the cold far more effectively. I only wish I’d had Heliodor in my life back in February/March, when the “Beasts from the East” hit the UK. My part of Cornwall – about 25 miles east of Land’s End – hardly ever sees snow, but we were under an unprecedented five inches of the stuff! 😮 The local Highways Agency were in a tailspin and, further north, even the snowploughs were getting stuck. Never seen anything like it in my 41 years. But still, the “Beasts from the East” gave me less RA trouble than the summer heatwaves. Makes sense: I moved around a lot during the “Beasts”, to keep warm (and keep an eye on the weather which, without meaning to boast, I’m very good at), and ate healthily; whereas during the heatwaves, I hardly ate at all, and the official medical advice, for obvious reasons, is to move only as much as you must. For me, that’s quite a lot. Luckily my heat tolerance is far superior to my cold tolerance!

The Citrine sends you its love and thanks you very much for the dedication; I think its task now, is to help my intellect rather than my body temperature. That’s what it does, anyway. It shines gold now, whereas in the museum it was a very dull shade of yellow indeed. It assures me it’s fine now. One thing it’s helped teach me about crystals in general, alongside my abused baby Generator Quartz (which was in a worse condition than even the Citrine when I took over its care), is that crystals don’t experience time. Well, they do… but in a way we humans can’t understand because we don’t live long enough in one body (yet.. and that’s the crystals’ “yet”, not mine). I imagine it’s similar to the way the Earth experiences time. Something else to learn, maybe? 😊

Love and Light as always.

Aah! I get you Cherry. It’s cold, everywhere. Why don’t you try a fire element crystal such as the fire opal? Better yet, hold your citrine close, it will warm you up.
For the inflammation, I have always found aquatic or moss agate works the most. Have you ever tried it Cherry?


December 19, 2018

Ceida, I keep a tumbled Morganite under my pillow (it helps with the disruption of my body’s balance caused by my RA medications, said disruption often giving me dreadful nightmares), a princess-cut pendant with Cubic Zirconia accent stones all around it, and a ring to match which resides on the first or second finger of my right hand, inflammation depending. The Morganites in the jewellery are a rich rose-pink and show some dichroism, certain lights making the pink richer while others make it paler and slightly peachy (Aquamarine can do this too, so I think it’s normal). The tumblestone is a delicate pink, and again lacks any yellow tones. I do have a third specimen, which has grown in tandem with an Aquamarine, and the pair also live under my pillow. I take them all out regularly to show them some love and let them sit in, if not the sunshine, at least some daylight.

The ring has been instrumental of late in stopping my two first fingers from hurting on these cold December mornings!😊

Love and Light as always.

Cherry is absolutely right, although the best direction for Morganite as it attracts love is the Northeast. But, are you looking for love or something else?
Like Cherry said, keeping it in the northeast direction ‘in your bedroom’ will spike your intimacy.
What’s your secret place for morganite, Cherry?

December 17, 2018

@ Herman: ah, Morganite! A wonderful crystal, especially for relationships. Ceida would know better than I what direction to place it in, but Morganite is a truly superb heart chakra crystal. It can ward off bad dreams – yours,your Significant Other’s and those of any children you may have – it can help stop the ageing process, and its effects on your intimate life….. I can’t really describe them in a public forum like this. It can also help you to regenerate damaged or destroyed bodily cells (as can Pink Sapphire, but Morganite has less overwhelmingly powerful energies - Sapphire in any shade is not the stone for a crystal newcomer). Keep it under your pillow – if possible, teamed with Peridot, Amethyst and Rose Quartz – for a wonderfully peaceful night’s sleep; and if intimacy beckons, make sure it’s nearby :)

Love, Light and a Very Merry Christmas to you.
