The Magick of Stones

Crystals and stones contain their own energy. You can use the crystal or stone’s
energy for yourself or enhance your magick. Rose quartz, for instance, has a healing
and loving energy. You could wear a piece of rose quartz to help heal a broken heart. Or you could build a cone of power and put your specific intent into the piece of rose quartz.

Probably you would want to use a crystal or stone with an energy that “goes with” your intent and will amplify it. So, it would make sense to put a loving or healing intent into rose quartz, while you might want to use malachite or bloodstone if your intent were to build wealth and a successful business.


When you first get a stone you should cleanse it and energize it. You can do this by washing it in salt water, seawater, or holy water. Then take it out into the light of the full Moon. The Moon does two things—it cleanses and energizes the stone. You might say it
wakes it up. You can also awaken it by tapping it gently on sand after washing it, or giving it a gentle slap with your fingers. This action gets the stone’s attention.
