Crystal Healing Wands

Choosing A Crystal or Crystal Wand

When choosing any Crystals or Crystal Healing wand, you will want to consider the size, shape and type of crystal or gemstone for more than one reason. Not only are the properties of the stone or crystal relevant, but also the type of work you wish to do with it.


What It's Made Of: 

Crystal wands are made from numerous types of crystals and stones. The vibrations that come from the stone align with different elements within the physical and the metaphysical, the emotions and the mind. Looking at what the stones are used for regardless of their shape is key as these do not alter when shaped into a wand, they merely become more potent.

What Shape Is Right: 

If you are unsure which is the most suited shape for your purpose think about its application. Is it for placing on the body? In an energy grid? For massage of the muscles? (Use in intimate areas? Not a good idea)

For placing on the body you will not want crystals or stones that are too heavy. Remembering that a human body is also sensitive to temperature and other sensory elements means allowing for some movement. For this reason you may decide against fragile wands like selenite, which can shatter if dropped.

For massage of the muscles a rounded smooth wand is the logical choice. Massage therapists often choose wands to fit their own hand size, or even pebble like shapes. The use of healing wands and stones is actually beneficial for the therapist too by reducing force and strain of the hands.

Intimate personal massage with stones or crystals is a new craze that went wild in 2017 because someone famous commented on the positive effects for women physically and climatically. 


"Yoni" or Jade eggs for example have been cited as an ancient practice where they are inserted into the body and increase sexual pleasure and womb health. Is there really an increase in orgasm intensity if you use crystals as sex toys?


Research confirms that this is not the case on any of the claims. Inserting crystals or any object into the body can increase chances of infection, or more permanent damage.

What Size Is Right: 

Again the size of your crystal or gemstone wand may depend upon your intended use. A hand held tool may be better if it is slightly thinner, but longer. Depending on the size of your hands this will vary.

For use in Crystal Grids you may wish to use shorter wands depending on the layout. Some Mandala like grids have a wide based upright crystal at the center surrounded by wands or naturally shaped stones.


Learning the best way to create crystal grids is to have in person classes with an instructor who has plenty of crystals to demonstrate the visual and the vibrational differences.
