- third eye chakra
- throat chakra
- heart chakra
- solar plexus chakra
- sacral chakra
- root chakra

We’re going to look at 11 crown chakra crystals that can help calm your mind and connect you to others. But first…
What Is Your Crown Chakra?
The crown chakra is your Seventh Chakra and it is also known as the Sahasrara chakra. It is located on the top of the head and corresponds to the pineal gland. Every chakra has colors associated with it, in this case the crown’s colors are white or violet. So, you’ll definitely see some white and violet crystals on our list below.
This chakra is the chakra of enlightenment and spiritual connection. It allows us to connect to others, our higher selves and even the divine. It stands for awareness and intelligence and takes up space at the very top of your head. The crown chakra is linked to every other chakra, so it affects everything.
If you have a blocked 7th chakra you may be described as narrow-minded, skeptical, or stubborn. But when this chakra is open, it can bring you to an overall state of bliss and enlightenment.

Ways to Incorporate Crystals Into Your Life
You don’t need to buy every crystal on this list to reap the benefits that come along with the opening your crown chakra.
Experts recommend choosing the stones that you naturally gravitate to or feel most connected to after reading about their properties or holding them in your hands if you are crystal shopping in person.
Once you choose the crown chakra healing crystals you like the most, what do you do with them?
Set an intention for your crystals.
Crystals help you stay present. A lot of their powers can really be connected back to mindfulness. What better way to enhance their energy, then to be mindful about what you want them to help you address?
When you bring your crystals home, take a few minutes to think about what energy you want them to bring into your life. Say it out loud and write it down. Revisit the note in a few weeks and see how you feel.
You can give those intentions an extra boost with essential oils. An oil like Frankincense can be a powerful tool for tuning into your inner knowing and creating mindful intentions.
Use your crown chakra crystals while meditating.
Hold one or two of your crystals in each of your hands while you mediate. This can help you stay present and grounded, even if you only meditate for one minute before you start your day.

Wear your crystals.
Let your crystals act as a reminder throughout your day of your goals and desires to be more enlightened and at peace. A great way to do this is to wear crystal jewelry like a bracelet or ring, instead of say a necklace or earrings, that you yourself can visually see and enjoy.
Where to Place Your Crown Chakra Crystals
Hallways are great place to put many of these mind cleansing types of crystals. The bedroom is another good place to put crystals that promote healing and relaxation. Look for a collection of crystals that are ready to be hung on a wall.
Or you can buy pedestals for larger stones and can also choose a crystal bowl or dish for a collection of stones. If you choose a crystal bowl, consider one made of clear quartz so that it magnifies the energy of the stones that it holds.
Crystals live harmoniously with other natural things so you may want to place a few inside of a potted indoor plant or add a dried flower to your crystal dish.
