Some things are just more powerful in pairs. Like superfoods, workout buddies, and our personal favourite coupling: crystals. Turns out the stones we’re all obsessing over for raising our vibration, allowing us to manifest our desires, and helping us feel more grounded, are actually at their strongest when matched with an equally powerful partner. But how do you know which crystals are meant to be together and which are just not compatible?
For our “Summer of Crystals” series, we talked to Certified Crystal Experts Joey Wargachuk and Graciela Gabica from Happy Soul, to find out the best gem pairings. To give you, our readers, a chance to tap into the power of these pairs, Happy Soul is also offering an exclusive discount on these crystals in-store (just mention Well TO Do!) and online for the whole week following their announcement!
This Week: Citrine & Pyrite for cultivating abundance.
Crystal Pairings: A Primer
First things first, what does it mean to create a crystal pairing?
Using one crystal is great but using two is better! Mainly because based on the crystals structure and chakra association if the crystal energy is harmonious it forms a crystal energy matrix that amps up the abilities and effects of both crystals to strengthen and amplify your intention.
Are there any crystals that don’t pair well with others? If so, why? What are some common pairings you see that shouldn’t be paired together?
Just like colors in fashion, there are crystals based on chakras and structures that just don’t gel. Don’t pair crystals north of the Heart chakra (Throat, Third Eye, Crown) with ones south of the Heart chakra (Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus). It could cause serious imbalances when seeking chakra balancing or healing.
Crystal structure is all about the type of energy vibration the crystal is oscillating at so keep dispeller crystals like obsidian away from attractor crystals like pyrite.
I see so many crystal pairing “no no’s” on YouTube and Instagram, but it makes me the most crazy when I go on Etsy and see these newbies pairing crystals because they think they look cool or pretty, or even worse when they say it’s a healing crystal bracelet and they just stacked on a bunch of chakra crystals totally out of order or all one chakra. Bad news!
You’ve said one of the most common mistakes people make when getting into crystals is to keep them all in one place (say, on a little tray together). Why is that not a good idea?
Placing crystals in a pile on a plate effects the energetic harmony; you have too many energy beams competing for the same space which can create an energetic cacophony. They need space to breathe and form organic energetic healing matrixes.
How does pairing one crystal with another change their impact/vibration/effect?
Selecting the correct paring can amplify and send up the intention you are seeking. It can also work more quickly in balancing and unblocking the desired chakra.
All About: Citrine & Pyrite
Why do these two crystals pair so well together?
Citrine is the abundance crystal! It’s not just about money, but about bringing you the feeling of having more than enough. Pyrite is the perfect partner for citrine because as an attractor/amplifier crystal it manifests the intentions being sent out by your citrine, bringing them into reality.
Are there any crystals that these don’t pair well with? If so, which other crystals?
Morganite is a divine feminine crystal that would be the polar opposite of this pairing and would give you the desire to abandon materialistic pursuits.
What are the key properties of each crystal on their own and how does that change or intensify when they are paired together?
Citrine (abundance) and pyrite (manifestation and money): these are the dream team. Citrine, the seeker crystal, sends your intentions of abundance out into the universe. Pyrite amplifies and manifests those intentions into the material word.
How do you suggest we keep these crystals together?
In general, one can keep crystals they are working with on them in a little bag or in their purse. Use them in mediation or place them in a spot where you are living and working to change the energy of that space.
Keep citrine & pyrite in your home office or hold it in each fist while visualizing your dream life.
