About This Quiz

Getting started with crystals doesn't have to be this long, drawn out religious experience. It should actually be the exact opposite. The hope is that there will be a crystal you are just drawn to — one that speaks to you on a deep level, even if it can't be explained. But if that experience doesn't happen for you, that doesn't mean there's no crystal out there for you. You just need a different approach. 

It's helpful to do a little bit of research about crystals. Find out what goals certain ones accomplish and figure out which one would best suit your life. Once you have that crystal, you can branch out and try new ones.

If you're at the stage where you already know you want to get into crystals, you're most of the way there. Now it just comes down to realizing what you're struggling with the most and choosing a corresponding crystal. Maybe you're not even really struggling with anything, but you want the reassurance of a crystal by your side. There's no right or wrong reason to want crystals in your life. 

So you've taken the first step by realizing you want a crystal, and now we can help you figure out which beginner one is right for you. Take this quiz to find out!
