Crystals are a valuable and very versatile tool. You can wear them as a talisman, place them on altars and incorporate them in to spells. Below is a list of my favourites and how I use them. As with all magical correspondences the below list is by no means set in stone, there is every possibility that a particular crystal will present you with an entirely different set of energies to the associated ones I've described. Work with what feels right for you, our connection with magical energies is as unique as we are as people so there will always be exceptions to every rule.

Once you have selected the type crystal you are going to work with it is a good idea to cleanse it of any negative/residual energies that have become attached to it either because it’s a new tool or due to previous uses or rituals. There are lots of different ways to do this. You can either use one of these methods, or any combination or variation that feels right for the spell you are casting or ritual you are performing.
Use rain, spring or sea water to pour over the crystal or stand the crystal in.
Bury the crystal in earth, sand or salt.
Pass the crystal through incense smoke.
Pass the crystal through/over a flame.
Stand the crystal in moonlight.
Use a citrine crystal to cleanse the crystal you are using, (citrine is unique in that it doesn’t hold on to negative energies).
The more you work with a specific crystal, the more you will feel a personal connection to it and the more effective a tool it becomes.
