Crystals play roles in many spells and rituals, and witches value them for their versatility. Generally speaking, larger crystals are more powerful — as well as more rare and expensive — than smaller ones, but that's not always the case. When choosing crystals, allow yourself to be drawn by the stones instead of simply picking them for their size or beauty. If you listen carefully, you might even hear them speak to you. Because crystals amplify the energies of other stones, witches often use them in talismans and amulets where they increase the power of the charm. When placed on an altar in the company of other stones, or when combined with other gems on a magick tool, crystals unify and strengthen the various stones' vibrations.
