Which crystals are good for candles?

Most crystals are safe to be used in candles. Although some crystals, such as amethyst, lose their color if exposed to very high temperatures, this does not apply to heat coming from a candlewick. You can use raw crystal pieces, tumbled stones, chips, hearts, and spheres.

Although the majority of crystals can be used in candles, you should know how to combine them, depending on their purpose. Also, when used together with essential oils and healing herbs, the benefits of such a crystal-infused candle are increased considerably.
