Crystal Haul: The Newest Additions to the Family


It’s undeniable that I have a pretty large crystal collection, and with the number of cute crystal shops around me, it’s a given that I’m continuously adding to it! There are also a number of online crystal sellers to choose from, which is where I got most of the crystal’s in today’s haul. I actually already had quite a few of these crystals already in my collection, but like I said, I love to keep adding.

The seller I purchased these crystals from is RubyDubyDu in Amazon, and they arrived pretty quickly after I placed my order (even though they weren’t shipped with Prime). The only crystal I picked up in person was spirit quartz, which I purchased at a store called Village Silversmith.


Citrine is really the star of this new bundle, because I received two very large, raw chunks of it. I did own citrine before this, but I only had one very small, tumbled stone. Considering all the lovely benefits of citrine, I can always justify adding more of it to my life. Citrine best aligns with the solar plexus chakra, and it is perfect for bringing energy and abundance into your life. I’ve heard it described as “sunshine encapsulated into a crystal”, and that’s a pretty accurate description of citrine’s power. I consider citrine to be a classic stone in anybody’s collection, and it’s one of the first stones I recommend to beginners.

Garnet is a powerful stone that can be utilized for the root and sacral chakras, because the energy of the stone is all about passion and earthiness. Some stones are renowned for having more feminine energy than others, and this is definitely a stone that I associate with that energy. It’s been said that garnet is excellent for regulating sex drives and sensual explorations, so if you’re looking to spice things up in the bedroom, consider tucking a piece under your mattress. Additionally, going along with the feminine-energy theme, garnet thrives best when it is recharged in new moon nights. Garnet is also safe for water cleansing, if that is something you prefer.

Aventurine is a stone I have mentioned a few times before here on The Diplomat’s Digest, and that’s because pink and green stones are my absolute favorites to collect. Some people believe that green aventurine is the luckiest out of all the crystals, especially when it comes to manifesting prosperity and wealth. For me personally, I love this stone because it represents new growth. It’s easy to feel tied down by the privations of the past, or the guilt of your mistakes, so I enjoy meditating with aventurine to remind myself to let go. Aventurine itself comes in a variety of different colors, and I also have this stone in yellow. It’s an absolutely stunning crystal, and I would recommend it to everybody.

Malachite is the most recent crystal I have covered here on my blog- I actually just wrote a full-page analysis of it last week, if you’re interested in learning more! In a nutshell, malachite is ideal for letting go of trauma. The energy of this stone promotes self-worth, willpower, and forgiveness- especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Malachite contains both heart and solar plexus chakra energies- an unusual combo for a crystal. If you experience blockages in your self worth and self-esteem, you may want to consider adding malachite to your collection. It’s easy to find, and it’s also approved for water cleansing. Just don’t touch raw malachite, as the dust particles can be toxic! Polished malachite is always best and safest.

Clear Quartz is possibly the most versatile, easily accessible stone I can think of, and I have tons of it. Unlike many crystals that come from specific parts of the world only, clear quartz is a universally-found stone, and it’s probably one of the cheapest you can buy. Clear quartz is also ideal for all of the seven chakras, making it a great beginner stone if you’re not sure what to buy first! Because it is such a versatile stone, it is important to listen to this crystal and let it guide you, rather than the other way around. Generally, clear quartz is used for transformation, clarity, and healing- in all senses of the word.

Pyrite, also known as fool’s gold, is a stunning crystal to feast your eyes upon. Perfect for the solar plexus chakra, pyrite aids in confidence, luck, abundance, productivity, and supercharged creativity. If you really need a boost of get-it-done energy, pyrite is an excellent stone to have on hand. It can help you burn through procrastination, which is something I appreciate greatly (especially when I’m trying to focus on writing!). Pyrite is an ideal workspace crystal, so I’m definitely going to be stashing this stone on my desk to have near while I’m working on projects and goals.

Tiger’s Eye is an absolutely gorgeous, dark stone, with ribbons of gold running through it. Like clear quartz, Tiger’s Eye is a another versatile stone, perfect for the sacral, solar plexus, and root chakras. It is a perfect stone for energy activation, courage, and protection, especially when you find yourself facing a new, scary situation. Tiger’s Eye was also very popular in the 1970s, when people compared its energy to the fire of activism and social change. If you are trying to add some positive changes to your own life, you may get a lot of satisfaction out of the courage this stone will bring you. I know that I sure do.

Carnelian is a perfect stone for energy, creativity, confidence, and vitality- all things that align with the sacral and solar plexus chakras. Like garnet and tangerine quartz, carnelian is an excellent stone for aiding in sexuality and vibrancy in the bedroom. It’s also ideal for sparking creative energy, and can help you to prioritize your physical goals. It’s like a pocket-sized personal trainer, constantly encouraging you to get up and get moving. Additionally, carnelian is immune-boosting, so keep it close by in cold and flu season!

Moss Agate is a cleansing, renewing crystal, and it’s perfect for strengthening your garden’s energy. I occasionally will nestle crystals into the soil of my potted plants, because who’s to say my plant isn’t benefiting from the positive energy? I sure like to believe it does! Like many green stones, moss agate is also an ideal stone for attracting abundance, especially if you’re trying to bring in some extra cash dollars in the workplace. Personally, I’ll just stick to putting it in my garden, but let me know if it brings you any wealth or prosperity!

Spirit Quartz is one of the two crystals in my haul that I have never owned before now, so I’m extremely excited to work with it! It’s an absolutely gorgeous, elegant stone, and comes in varieties of milky pearl, lilac, and even orange. The particular type of spirit quartz I have is called “fairy spirit quartz”, which is the opaque white variety. White spirit quartz is perfect for activating all seven chakras, and resonates well with physical healing in the body. Like many other white crystals, this variety of spirit quartz symbolizes feminine energy, ancient goddesses, purity, and unity.

Those are all the crystals I’ve picked up in the last few weeks, and I’m so excited to meditate, analyze, and familiarize myself with them. Like I said, I got a majority of these stones online, so I’ll leave the link to the shop I used below.
