People who work with crystals know of their capacity for both emotional healing and balance. But there are some crystals that are a little better at healing the emotions than others.

If you're new to the power of crystals, you may wonder what makes them work at all. Aren't they simply rocks pulled up out of the ground?

People who use crystals believe that the way crystals were formed deep in the Earth makes them batteries that store, absorb, emit and focus the Earth’s energy. This energy is very much like the energy of the astral and subtle body, which are layers of biomagnetic energy that enclose your physical body and affect your emotional, mental, spiritual and physical health.
