Crystal Shapes - What They Mean and How to Use Them


Crystals come in a variety of colors, patterns, sizes, and forms. It is not only the qualities of the crystals that are important, but the form of the crystal is also important.

Depending on what you want your crystal to help you with, a certain form may be preferable for you. That is why we have produced a guide that explains what the various forms stand for.


Tumblestones are ideal for carrying in a pocket or purse and are the perfect crystal shape to begin with when you are new to the world of crystals. At Jewels & Gems, we enjoy having a variety of crystals in our bags or pockets depending on the energy we feel we need that day, and tumblestone crystals are certainly popular for daily intention setting and energy work.

Points, Towers and Wands

Crystal points and towers can assist us in being intentional and directing goals and aspirations to the universe and are extremely effective when used in rituals to support the manifestation of your intentions. For this reason, we like to recommend using crystal points and towers when doing a Moon ritual.

Clusters and Geodes

A crystal cluster consists of a crystal made up of a multitude of tiny crystal formations, it is believed to hold a greater vibration than most crystal shapes. Placing a crystal cluster in your house or office allows the crystal's energy to  travel in all directions


When it comes to manifesting, the crystal pyramid is one of the most effective crystal shapes. It also aids in the purification of the energy in a space, as the energy of the crystal flows in all directions in the room due to the pointed tips. Pyramids are a lovely shape to have around the house to transmit any energy such as love or serenity (depending on the crystal's healing properties).

Raw Stones

Raw crystals are the shapes that nature has produced, and what we love about them is that each one is unique. And their spirit is raw, one-of-a-kind, and honest, just like their form.


At Jewels & Gems, we absolutely love meditating with crystal spheres as this crystal shape is known for circulating energy flow in all directions, connecting us to the energy of the universe. This is a great crystal shape to add to your collection as it is said to effectively and actively distribute the healing properties of crystals and gemstones.

Pebbles, Palmstones and Smoothstones

Crystal pebbles make an excellent stone shape for meditation and attunement practices. A way that we like to work with pebbles is by holding it in our hands during meditation or placing it on the body to allow the crystal's energetical frequency to connect with ours. 


Heart-shaped crystals symbolize love and work mainly with the heart chakra, making them ideal for healing our heart after a breakup or betrayal. The heart shape acts as a reminder that we are always surrounded by love and hold deep within the powerful ability to attract love from others or discover love for ourselves.


Eggs hold a lovely feminine vibration, also known as Yoni Eggs, they are a popular beneficial tool for reproductive health. Crystal eggs are thought to have the capacity to open unconscious energy; they assist us in becoming aware of energy imbalances or suppressed emotions, as well as in mending them. Crystal eggs can also provide us with celestial messages from our Higher selves or spirit guides.


A freeform is a piece of stone that has been carved in an irregular spherical shape; however, if a stone grows in a specific way or requires a specific sort of cut/polish, it will seem more flat, such as labradorite. Freeforms exist in a variety of sizes, and each one is distinctive in its own way, highlighting the natural beauty of any stone. Freeforms may not have a specific meaning or distinct energy output like the other shapes mentioned so far, but they nevertheless fill a space with positive feelings and beauty.

When selecting crystals, it's so important to trust your intuition and follow your gut; just ask yourself which crystal resonates with you or appeals to you? However, if you wish to gift a crystal or feel like you need more of a certain energy in your life, you may base your decision not only on the properties of the crystal but also on the meaning associated with its shape.

We hope this blogpost has helped you grasp the differences between various shapes as well as when and how you may work with your gems to add more enchantment to your daily life.
