Tumbled Crystals vs. Natural Crystals And How To Store Them
Question from a reader:
I think of crystals and stones much like I do tools, rituals, magick, etc. – they are as good as one’s belief in them and intention with cooperation when working with them. Kind of like anything else, you have to believe in them for them to work, and they will work however you believe they should – or how you’ve been taught to believe they should.
“Do tumbled/polished crystals have the same strength as raw/natural ones? Also, does it matter if you keep them in an enclosed container like a small box or should I place them in an open one like a tray?”
I do believe that stones and crystals hold their own specific vibration – everything does, and generally speaking those vibrations can be similar to certain emotional vibrations that humans give off which can be healing, but again, I think belief is the most important factor. That being said, I would say that tumbled crystals vs. natural crystals – it doesn’t matter, on a surface level, what type of stone it is.
