Updated: Dec 3, 2020


Types of Healing Crystals


Crystals possess their own consciousness and spirit. They possess an electromagnetic pull that is directed to those who desire or need their energy. Through my journey of crystals, I have found that the crystals that I was initially attracted to were the very crystals that I needed in my life. Did the crystal call to me or did my gut just know? No way to tell but either way I’m glad to witness the power that they contain.


Crystals can be used for a number as things especially as a healing tool or aid. One can properly harness their energy if they know what types of crystals they are working with. There are 6 categories of crystals that we will discuss. Knowing what type of healing crystal is important especially in building crystal grids. This can help you pinpoint what exactly you need or wish to manifest in your life.


The six categories are, Seeker, Attractor, Enhancer, Guardian, Barrier and Dispeller crystals. Each type has a certain function that can be harnessed and combined with your intentions to make your desire come true.


Seeker Crystals




Seeker crystals are pointers, directors, and compasses. They help you align your feelings for new beginnings into thoughts that are focused on discovery. Those thoughts lead to actions that result in the discovery of the new approaches, new angles, and new beginnings you seek. Those actions, as they become habits, develop into a new life.


Seeker crystals are probably the most popular type of crystal. When you need help to find new relationships, new love, new capabilities, new experiences, or new ways of living, Seekers give you the needed ability to focus and amplify your abilities to seek out the new elements you desire. Seekers contain the crystal energy structure that aligns the natural energy of the crystal to the natural power of the human mind to find your way to new horizons and new capabilities.

These crystals, like Zircon, stand out and are noticed by the play of light over their surface. These crystals are perfect when your purpose is to attract someone or something to you.


Attractor crystals exude energy like a magnet towards the things you wish to manifest. With that in mind, it is a great idea to use seeker crystals in addition to attractor crystals in your grid.

This type of crystal urges us to improve our current strengths, assets, and positive circumstances, only to harbor more of the good that already exists within our lives.

The parallel structure of their crystalline lattice gives these crystals their power to protect us in the physical world and in the spiritual one.


In the physical world they are excellent aids in protecting your loved ones, your possessions, and your physical security. They are very useful in protecting houses and homes, property, and valuables. If you have prized possessions you want to guard and protect, use a Guardian crystal.

The Barrier crystals are similar to Guardian crystals; the difference is the focus. Guardian crystals focus on protecting and maintaining what you already have.

For instance, a Guardian crystal can be used to guard our health, whereas, a Barrier crystal can be used to keep a particular disease away. The way in which this type of crystal is used depends on what it is you wish to protect. If you have a general purpose, use a Guardian crystal. If you have something specific you wish you protect yourself from, use Barrier crystals. You can increase the amount of protection when both crystals are used together.


Barrier crystals contain a Triclinic structure, meaning it doesn't have any right angles.
