The Power of Raw Crystals: Why We’re Loving Raw, Natural Crystals
At different times in our lives, different healing crystals will call out and speak to us. Depending on what is going on in the world and what is going on in your individual life, a specific shape or color may draw you in and capture your attention. For example, if your intuition or subconscious energy is in need of protection, you may be attracted to dark or black crystals. If you are manifesting, you may feel drawn toward crystal points. Lately, we’ve been incredibly drawn to raw crystals and finding their energy to be particularly well-suited to this moment in time, and we think you’ll love them, too. Here’s why we’re into raw, natural crystals right now:
The Power of Completely Natural, Raw Crystals
A raw crystal is the purest form of crystal energy you can find. Unaltered, untouched, unchanged, these crystals vibrate at the highest frequency and offer you the chance to connect with the earth in its most natural form. Not only is a raw crystal a powerful source of grounding energy, stability, and high vibrations, but the raw nature of a crystal also changes the way you work with its energy.
The power of raw crystals is that they help you dive deeper into your layers and your unique self. They teach you how to embrace yourself, to love yourself, and to reach your full potential.
A raw crystal has imperfections, flaws, and is truly one-of-a-kind. It reminds us of our own unique nature and guides you to embrace who you are, exactly as you are. It teaches you that you are perfect, whole, and complete just the way you are. By looking at it, holding it, and working with it, you can embrace your own raw beauty. Although it may be challenging or uncomfortable at first, you can learn the greatest lessons and make the most progress when you look at life from this lens.
At a time of significant change, transformation, and up-leveling, the raw, natural crystals are just what we need to heal and grow on a deeper level.

Natural, Raw Crystal Power Pairings for Your Home & Your Intentions
A powerful way to supercharge your intentions and your crystal practice is to combine particular crystal energies together. Each crystal addresses a particular aspect of your intention, and they work together to create an even more powerful collective energy. Since we’ve been loving the benefits of raw, natural crystals, we’ve curated specific crystal combinations that are designed to support some of the top intentions and energies we all need right now.
To Break Through Stagnation & Get Unstuck
If you’ve been feeling stuck or stagnant, this crystal combination will help you to break through that energy blockage and move forward in life.
What you’ll need:
- 1 Raw Green Calcite to show the universe that you are ready for new growth
- 1 Raw Serpentine to guide you to identify what you want
- 1 Blue Calcite to help you take action
- 1 Raw Natural Citrine to bring light to the situation
- 1 Red Calcite to help you get grounded and motivated
- A plant to represent planting roots and new seeds of growth
Find a spot in your home to place your plant and crystals where they will receive sunlight. Water your plant to bring fluidity and allow the sun to shine upon your crystals and the plant, representing growth and evolution.
To Release Fear, Shame, Guilt & Despair
If fear, shame, guilt, sadness or other lower vibrations are holding you back, this crystal combination can support the release of these unwanted energies from your energy field and environment.
What you’ll need:
- 1 raw Black Tourmaline to release anything that doesn’t serve you
- 1 Peacock Ore to bring light to your life
Hold these two crystal energies in your hands, over your heart, over your root chakra, or anywhere else that feels natural and intuitive to you. As you hold and connect with your crystals, notice the duality of their energies – darkness and light. Choose which side of life you want to live on. Allow the Black Tourmaline to absorb anything you want to release, and use the Peacock Ore to plug into a higher vibration and shift your state.
To Soothe Anxiety & Decompress from the Day
Instead of writing in a journal to process the day, use this crystal combination to absorb the energy from the day so you can return to your natural state of being – stress-free, calm, and high vibe.
What you’ll need:
- 1 Lepidolite crystal for releasing anxiety, worry, or other lower vibrations
- 1 Amethyst cluster for bringing peace to your mind
- 1 Selenite crystal for clearing out your energy field
- 1 Raw Rose Quartz for comfort and consolation
Hold each crystal, one at a time, to hand over your worries and stresses to the crystals instead of holding onto them. This is the perfect practice to help you clear the day before you go to sleep or any time you feel stressed or anxious. You can store these crystals in your bedroom when you are not actively working with them to radiate calming energy into your space.
To Attract Miracles
Miracles are all around you, but sometimes you just can’t see them. This crystal combination can open your eyes and your heart to miracles of all kinds.
What you’ll need:
- 1 Fuchsite crystal to represent magic and otherworldly possibilities
- 1 Selenite crystal to clear out any energies blocking you from experiencing the miracles around you
Hold the Selenite and Fuchsite over your heart to help you pay attention and open your energy up to miracles, magic, and possibilities. When you are not actively using them, place them together on top of a written intention to create more miracles for yourself.
