The Top 10 Crystals of Body, Mind, & Soul as of Summer 2022

At Body, Mind, & Soul, we have a little bit of everything. Books, Jewelry, Tarot & Oracle Cards, Incense, Journals, Decor, even some clothes, but the number one thing that people come to us for is….you guessed it, the crystals. It’s part of the magic of the store. From one end of the store to the other, we have an abundance of crystals ranging from tumbles, rough pieces, free form, palm stones, carvings, spheres, wands, and geodes. Around the Summer Solstice, we became curious about which were the most popular at the store. We decided to pull up the list of the Top Ten Crystals purchased at the shop. 

Each stone in this list will have keywords for the stones' uses and properties, corresponding chakras, zodiac signs, planets, and elements. There is also a category called, “Alternatives.” If you have ever found yourself looking for one of these stones, but can’t find it, we have listed other stones that will have similar purposes and themes. Keep in mind that everyone’s personal journey with the stones will vary from person to person. The more we work with the crystal, the more it will reveal to us and guide us.

Here are our top 10 crystals purchased at Body Mind & Soul - enjoy!
