What are the First 8 Crystals to Collect?

If you’re just starting out collecting crystals it may be a bit confusing knowing where to begin. If you were to only have one crystal most people would recommend you start with Clear Quartz. Considered to be a 'master healer', Clear Quartz can be used to stimulate the immune system. It also amplifies the energies of other crystals that are placed next to it, making their energy more intense. Below are our favourite crystals for beginners starting on their crystal journey!
