Chakra stones, or healing crystals, are thought to correspond to each of the chakras or centres of energy in the body. They are said to help balance the chakras and improve your overall wellbeing. There are 7 different chakras that are believed to distribute the energies of life throughout our bodies.

However, people believe trauma or depression and anxiety can cause these centres to become blocked, restricting the movement of energies causing physical and emotional issues such as worry, fear, insecurity and feeling disconnected.

Here, we cover what chakra stones are, and their potential benefits.

What are chakra healing crystals?

Chakra healing crystals, also known as chakra crystals or stones of chakra, are types of stones that are known to correspond with your body chakras. ‘Chakra’ is derived from a Sanskrit word which means ‘wheel’ and refers to the energy centres in the body. If these chakras become imbalanced, this is said to affect your overall wellbeing, both spiritually and physically. So, people use stones of chakra to magnify or balance their chakra energy centres.
