Can You Carry Or Wear Too Many Crystals?

Can You Carry Or Wear Too Many Crystals?

How many crystals is too many crystals? Is it okay to carry or wear lots of different crystals at the same time?  Will the crystal’s energies clash or be less effective in some way? 
When people first start working with the properties of crystals they can quickly find themselves with lots of crystals they feel they need. This small collection can grow quickly, pockets become filled with Tumble Stones and wrists can disappear under Crystal Healing bracelets.
Then they start to wonder, if the crystals are losing effectiveness, canceling each other out or causing unseen problems. They hear something somewhere about not wearing certain crystals with other crystals…

 

Lower Chakra Bracelets

These bracelets use Tiger’s Eye, Carnelian and Smoky Quartz. All lower chakra crystals which help the wearer with goals and positive thinking (Available from my shop on Etsy)

 

Incompatible Crystals?

As always this is just my opinion and experience with stones. Certain crystals will work better with other crystals. Crystals that have similar properties or elements will just naturally work well together. It is important to consider what it is that you want to accomplish with your choice of crystals.
Be aware of crystal properties which seem to be contradicting each other.
Let me give you an example. You chose to wear your Garnet bracelet for increased energy to get things done but you also chose a Variscite bracelet to help keep you calm. This could be an interesting experiment…
The Variscite may help you stop getting stressed while doing what you need to do but it could also just send very mixed signals. It could be like pressing stop and go at the same time.
Think what you want to achieve the most. Crystals have lots of properties and different sources may say different things. What is more important is your intention as that is the energy you are working with.

 

Always Compatible Crystals:

Crystals of the same colour.
Crystals with the same element association.
Crystals with the same properties.
Crystals for the same chakra or chakra group (See my book Crystal Healing For the Chakras for more info).
There are no concrete rules for crystals that won’t work well together in my opinion, just use common sense. In most cases mixing crystals will never be an issue. The worst that could happen is that the crystals may just cancel each other out like the example I gave above.

Will The Crystals be Less Effective?

When working with several crystals at once you are drawing on different energies. These may be similar or all different, depending on your needs. It is normal to work with different crystals in Crystal Healing. Creating Crystal Grids, gemstone jewellery, chakra balancing all require lots of different crystals.
When it comes to carrying crystals or wearing them, the more different energies you have the more you have going on. It is always a good idea to focus on a few things that are most important to you when choosing several stones.
If the crystals you have are different but all have properties which are helpful towards your desired goal this is okay. These types of energies are compatible and not conflicting in any way.

 

How Many Crystals is Too Many Crystals?

I know some people who have a bag filled with different crystals that they take with them everywhere. I think what we consider t be “too many crystals” really depends on the person. Chakra jewellery often consists of seven or more different crystals and I have never heard anyone have an issue with that. I would say seven is perfectly acceptable number for most people. More than that will depend on you.

 

If you find wearing or carrying a certain amount of crystals makes you feel light headed or confused then cut back.
Sometimes too many crystals can be overwhelming, ungrounding or may over energize you. Some people can carry or wear lots of crystals while others can only really handle 2 or three different stones at the same time.

 

What I carry or wear

For me personally currently I carry one crystal in my pocket. With bracelets or a pendant I may have two or sometimes three more crystals on me at one time. Most days it is two different types of crystal. Again this is just me and how I tend to use crystals on a day-to-day basis.

 

How many different types of crystal do you tend to carry or wear on a daily basis? I would love to hear from you in the comments below.

    Yet again you have given practical advice for those of us who have a strong affinity for crystals. Your suggestions on choosing crystals for the day made so much sense. I always look forward to your postings. Thank you so much, Ethan.

    Thank you for your informative articles! This one caught my eye as I have a bracelet with many different crystals that I hand-picked and put together. Its black tourmaline, aqua aura, quartz, orange calcite, adventurine, tigers eye, rose quartz, goldstone, citrine, jade, lapiz lazuli, jasper, mother of pearl, aquamarine and shungite. When putting it together I didn’t think of the possibility of having too many different energies at once, and hope most of them work together rather than cancel each other. I change it occassionally. This combination is what works for me now.

        Sir, thank you so much for replying. Funny/ not so funny story, several days ago my bracelet broke(!) and the crystals dispersed everywhere. I located all except the quartz, which finally came back to me today badly damaged. I went to restring the bracelet today at the store and the person helping me advised the current energies on my bracelet were a bit scattered. He kindly helped me to arrange it with crystals that were more compatible with each other. I mentioned this post and he absolutely agrees with it. Thank you again for your very informative articles!

    Your advice is very practical for the crystal lover. I have a medicine bag that goes everywhere with me, and I have about a dozen or so crystals with me, in addition to rings and pendants. I grab a pocket crystal as I feel moved to. I love them all! I think we are receptive to each individual vibe as needed, as you stated in an earlier post. All are a gift…

    I carry black obsidian, aqua aura, and angelite right now. I use to carry all my crystals on me but I just stick to a few now and I always carry my black obsidian for grounding!!

    Hi Ethan,
    I have a pouch I carry with me everywhere..black tourmaline, garnet, citrine, aventurine, carnelian, rose quartz, tigers eye and hematite. Can you tell me which crystals are compatible with each other please? As I’m not sure I am carrying too many.

    1. Ethan Lazzerini Post author

      Hi Graeme, it would really depend what you are using those crystals for. Garnet and Carnelian are quite energising while the others are more soothing or grounding. If somthing is working for you with no problems don’t worry about it.

    Just getting started with crystals, and this article caught my eye. I could foresee that this was a route I might end up taking, and so I was very interested by your logical and common-sense advice. Thanks so much!

    I wear about 20 different crystals. Mine is a mix of grounding crystals and high ascension stones. The ascension stones or high vibrating crystals compliment one another.
    I use my intuition when wearing stones together as there are no hard or fast rules. It’s also about resonation.
    My right wrist, cannot stand having anything on them. It just for one reason another becomes annoyed. So that’s the only area that doesn’t allow me gemstone jewelry.

    For lack of better words I am a newbie. Gratefully, I resonate and feel the energy from numerous crystals I have been exposed to just over the past three days. I spent time reading all of your resources this morning. Thank you for your time, energy and love spent sharing your knowledge, history and research. It is valued a great amount and I felt it important to express my gratitude. Have a wonderfully blessed day.

    I’ve been doing a “dark” side and a “light” side in my pockets. Sounds kind of silly now that I’m. Putting it into words. So basically I carry my black grounding stones on one side and my lighter more energetic stones in my. Other pocket and when I feel I need a boost I just reach into whichever pocket I need and hold them until I feel better. Thanks for the article I shall pay more attention in the future

    Thanks for this article and I am possibly late in responding into it, but here goes.
    Ever since my friend Tyrone got me interested in crystals I have gone a little bit crazy with them!
    I’ve spent untold fortunes on crystals and stones and rocks, to the point of having to buy two large display cases to put them in. And that doesn’t even count the jewelry.
    A great learning came from the fact that I was not sleeping well… Because like a ding-dong I was keeping them ALL in my bedroom!
    Then my friend suggested I keep the cases downstairs, and just choose a few to help me sleep. This has worked well for me.
    I keep amethyst, moonstone, angelite, and celestite near my bed, along with a large clear crystal quartz cluster to amplify them.
    I also have a set of chakra Stones laid out in order underneath my bed. Realizing that’s still a fair number of crystals as I list them here! But about 40 more downstairs! LOL. #crystaladdiction

      You may want to budget yourself and avoid the tempation of browsing crystals for sale. Too many Crystals in the bedroom is a common thing that people do and yes it will distrub sleep. Watch out for crystals that actiavte the head chakras as they will likely give you crazy dreams and little sleep too… Will cover this at some point.
