I often hear from people that are starting to work with crystal grids but need to budget themselves. Buying crystals for crystal grids can get expensive and we all want to make our money work for us. These tips should help you get started and make smarter choices when buying crystals.
Useful Crystals for Crystal Grids
There are crystals that are so versatile that they can be used in many different crystal grids, over and over again. They offer the most valuefor money long term and are a worthy investment if you wish to do more crystal gridding.
The Power Of Clear Quartz
If you are familiar with my crystal grids or have my book Crystal Grids Power, you will know I like to work with clear Quartz in nearly all my grids. Clear Quartz crystals serve many purposes and will enhance the effect of any crystal grid. They amplify, direct energy and are highly programmable.
Although this is a colourless and clear form of Quartz, do not worry if it is not completely clear or perfect. Always buy what you can afford and what is available for you.
For most crystal grids you will need a crystal that is placed in the center. This is the Central Stone, also known as the Focus Stone. You could see this like the energy hub of your crystal grid. This also focuses the intention behind your grid. It can be made of any type of stone and be in different shapes and forms too.
Look for a natural or carved standing crystal point or Crystal Tower. As Clear Quartz is all-purpose means you can use it for any crystal grid. These are very useful crystals for crystal grids. They can substitute any Central Stone that you read about in my blog posts, books or through other sources.
The Central Stone used in this crystal grid is the main focal point. Wooden grid base made by Fractal Roots Design.
TIP: Clear Quartz does not need to have perfect clarity to work. But ideally a good portion of the crystal should be clear and colourless.
What Type of Crystal Point?
This can be a natural raw Crystal Point that has had the base cut so that it stands up. Or you can use one that has been polished or carved into shape. You can also use a Standing Crystal Point (sometimes called a Tower) that is cut to shape with six uniform sides. In terms of size and proportion it should be prominent and the largest crystal in the grid.
You might want to get one that is at least one inch wide and two and a half inches tall. This will be suitable for most grids. Larger crystals do have more impact energetically but there is no need to go crazy! Your grid should look visually balanced to you and pleasing to the eye. It is more about the proportions in relation to the other crystals.
A Clear Quartz Standing Crystal Point is ideal for all crystal grids
Six or Twelve Clear Quartz Crystal Points
These will be essential Support Stones for your grids. You will see these often used in crystal grids because they are so useful in constructing geometric patterns. They direct energies throughout the grid and out into the Universe. Without at least 6 and ideally 12 you will struggle to make many crystal grids.
“A set of Quartz Crystal Points is such a useful tool and something I think anyone into crystals should have in their collection”
What Type of Crystal Points?
You can use natural unpolished clear Quartz Crystal Points of roughly the same size. They do not need to look perfect. These crystals can be single or Double Terminated. You can use cut and polished Crystal Points but these are usually much more expensive and hard to get in groups like this.
Quartz Crystal Points are essential for grid-work!
In terms of size as a general rule for my grids, they should be around one and a half inches long. If you were short on space you might go a bit smaller. Suppose you were making a large grid, you might want larger and longer points. Use your eye and think more about proportions and the mass of a crystal as a guide if you are unsure.
One and a half inches to two inches in length points are fairly easy to find and suitable for most grids you will make. To save yourself money, buy in bulk and see my tips below:
