Some Observations about Kids and Crystals

It’s an interesting exercise being able to watch and make some observations about kids and crystals. We believe that kids and crystals have a natural affinity for each other. Furthermore, that many of the kids who are drawn to crystals are natural healers. They also seem to have an innate knowledge of what crystals can do and how to use them.

If you get the chance to engage them in a conversation, they more often than not stagger us with their depth of understanding. As they grow many of them will lead us to a better world.

We believe that the more these kids are allowed to follow their instincts, the stronger they will grow and the better off we will be as a society.

Over the years we have made a number of observations concerning kids and crystals, albeit that these are anecdotal. Among them are these:

  • Children that are given the freedom to select and buy their own crystals seem to be a whole lot happier than their peers.
    • They are more independent.
    • Relatively better behaved.
    • Healthier.
    • Seem to have better social skills.
    • They learn the value of money and how to handle it.
    • Smile more.
    • Learn to make decisions.
    • Know their mind.
    • Communicate better.
    • They treat all crystals with great care.
    • Crystals and kids go well together naturally.
  • Some children are heavily hindered in getting to own crystals.
    • Their parents talk them out of it. But you can still see the disappointment in their body language.
    • They get to take a crystal home, but not their choice, rather the one their parents thought was better. Usually bigger or shinier, but not the one that they were attracted to.
    • Similar to the above, though different. They are talked into an entirely different crystals based upon the parents wants and needs.
    • Often we hear something like, “it’s your money” but when they want a crystal, they are told that they can’t spend their money on a crystal. This mixed message is such a shame. Unfortunately only a handful stands their ground and get what they wanted.

What really upsets us is when a child is told they can buy their crystal on the way out or later, but they never return. I totally loved it one when a young fellow retorted, “For the last three weeks you forgot to come back, so in case you forget again, can we buy it now?” “No, we’ll get it on the way out” he was told. There was a huge lesson in his next response. “Daddy you have been telling me I shouldn’t lie.” Fortunately for the father and the child, he got his crystal there and then.


We get very uptight when the Rambo’s arrive. No matter how many times they are told not to touch, they continue to do so and more often than not doing so in a very careless and rough manner.

However, most of them as they arrive, exclaim that this is their favourite shop. Nearly all of them have trained their parents to wait by patiently as they make their deliberations. Depending on their age and their particular criteria, selections are made from reading the properties of the crystals, to their colour or brightness, or the energy output, or because of how the crystals feel. Taste and smell are not excluded from the selection criteria either.

A lot of them are very clear on the stone they want, but they have no apparent reason for the selection. They just seem to know on a deeper level and have a firm conviction that this is their right choice in that moment.

We have noticed that many of them are quite caring and concerned about the wellbeing of their friends. Not all of the crystals they choose are for themselves. Frequently they are making a selection to help a friend or relative.

For us, it is a real joy to watch these youngsters and play our role in helping them out with their purchases.
