What crystals should beginners avoid?

Hi everyone,

I am new to the world of crystals and have just started exploring the benefits of using them for healing and meditation purposes. While I am excited to try out different crystals, I have read that there are some crystals that beginners should avoid.

So, I am here to ask for your advice on which crystals to avoid as a beginner. I want to make sure that I am using the right crystals and not causing any harm to myself or others.

Any advice or tips on this topic would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Hey guys,

I have been using crystals for a while and I highly recommend that beginners avoid using Malachite. Although it has great healing and protective properties, it is a toxic stone that contains high amounts of copper. Direct contact with the skin can cause skin allergies, rashes, and other reactions. So, it's best to avoid this one unless you have experience working with it.

Another crystal to avoid is Blue Kyanite. While it has excellent healing properties, it also has a powerful energy that can be overwhelming for beginners. Overuse can cause headaches, dizziness, or restlessness, so it is essential to use this stone in moderation.

Lastly, I would suggest that beginners avoid using clear quartz in overabundance. It is the most versatile crystal out there and can amplify the energy of other stones. However, using it excessively or without precaution can lead to an imbalance in your energy field.

I hope this information helps you on your crystal journey, and remember always to listen to your body and practice caution when using crystals. Happy healing!


Hello everyone,

As a long-time crystal user, I would advise beginners to avoid using Kyanite in the beginning. Kyanite is an excellent crystal for balancing and aligning your chakras, but it can be overwhelming for those who are just starting their healing journey. Kyanite has a high vibration that can cause overstimulation if used without proper guidance.

Another crystal to avoid is Blue Lace Agate, which is known for its calming and soothing properties. While it is a useful stone for stress relief, it can be too mild for those who have difficulty connecting with subtle energy. As a beginner, it is essential to work with crystals that resonate with you and have a noticeable effect.

Lastly, I would recommend avoiding the use of Apache Tear in the beginning. Apache Tear is a type of Obsidian that is known to enhance emotional healing and protection. However, it can also be quite heavy and cause tension in certain individuals. It is best to start with lighter and gentler stones before working with Apache Tear.

Remember to trust your intuition when it comes to choosing which crystals to work with, and always approach them with respect and gratitude. Happy crystal healing!


Hi there,

As someone who has been working with crystals for a while now, I can share my experience on which crystals beginners should avoid. One crystal to avoid is Selenite, as it has a very high vibration and can be overwhelming for beginners. It is important to work your way up to this crystal as it can be quite powerful.

Another crystal to avoid is Black Kyanite due to its strong energy and ability to dislodge negative energies. This crystal is best used by experienced crystal healers who understand its powerful effects.

Lastly, I would recommend beginners to avoid Moldavite as it is known to cause intense spiritual experiences and can lead to overwhelm or disorientation. It is a high vibration crystal that can be best used when you are comfortable with its effects.

I hope this helps and please remember that every individual can have a different experience with these crystals, so it is always best to start slow and work your way up gradually. Happy crystal journey!


Greetings all,

Having studied crystals for the past few years, I would like to add that beginners should be mindful while working with crystals such as Labradorite. While the stone is known for its protective properties and spiritual awakening, the energy is quite intense, which can cause dizziness or headaches to beginners.

Another crystal to avoid is Red Jasper. While it is an excellent grounding and stabilizing stone, it may cause overstimulation to the physical body if used excessively. The stone may also trigger vivid dreams or nightmares in some individuals, which can be overwhelming for a beginner.

Lastly, I would suggest avoiding unusual crystals such as Phenacite or Danburite in the beginning. These particular stones are incredibly potent, and their vibrations can be hard to handle, leading to confusion, dizziness and overall discomfort.

Remember to work with crystals that feel comfortable and resonate with you, take baby steps and do not rush the process of healing. The healing powers of crystals can be miraculous, but it is always better to be cautious while working with them.


Hello everyone,

I am glad to be a part of this discussion on which crystals beginners should avoid. In my opinion, one crystal that beginners should avoid is Pyrite. Although it is a beautiful stone, it can be harmful if handled improperly. Pyrite is known to contain sulfides that can cause skin irritation and respiratory problems if inhaled.

Another crystal that beginners should avoid is Carnelian, due to its strong and intense energy. While its effects can be beneficial to experienced crystal practitioners, it can be overstimulating for beginners and may cause feelings of restlessness or anxiety.

Lastly, I believe that Hematite is another crystal to avoid as a beginner. Although it is a powerful grounding and protective stone, it can be too intense for beginners who are just starting to work with crystals. Hematite is known for absorbing negative energy, which can be overwhelming if you are not yet familiar with its effects.

I hope this is helpful to those who are just starting their crystal journey. Remember to always do your research and listen to your intuition when choosing which crystals to work with. Happy crystal exploring!


Greetings everyone,

As someone who has recently started using crystals for energy healing, I found it helpful to avoid working with Fluorite crystals in the beginning. While it is an excellent stone for aiding concentration and mental clarity, it can be overwhelming for those who are sensitive to energy. Fluorite has a powerful effect on the third eye, and prolonged use can lead to headaches and other negative side effects.

Another stone to avoid in the beginning is Lapis Lazuli. While it is a beautiful and powerful stone with healing properties, it can be quite expensive for beginners. It is essential to invest in crystals that are within your budget and not to overspend on stones that you may not yet resonate with.

Lastly, I would suggest avoiding the usage of Shungite in the beginning. Shungite is a powerful protection crystal that can absorb electromagnetic radiation, but it can also be intense for those who are just starting their crystal journey. It is best to ease into using this stone and not use it excessively.

Always be mindful of your body and how each crystal affects you, no matter how experienced you are in working with crystals. Take care of yourselves, and happy healing!


Hello everyone,

As someone who has been working with crystals for years, I recommend that beginners avoid crystals such as Yoni eggs and Sodalite. Yoni eggs are eggs made of crystal or stone that are inserted into the vagina. While they can have a beneficial effect on the pelvic floor muscles, they should not be used by beginners as improper use can cause physical harm and pose a risk of infection.

Another crystal to avoid is Sodalite, which can be harmful if not used correctly. This crystal is known for its ability to stimulate the third eye chakra and enhance intuition. However, overuse or prolonged use can lead to headaches, agitation, and other negative side effects.

At the end of the day, it is essential for beginners to do proper research and seek guidance from experienced practitioners before using any new crystals. Remember to trust your intuition and take things slowly as you explore the world of crystals.
