White crystals are some of the most popular and versatile stones that you can work with for a variety of purposes. They can be used for cleansing, healing, protection, and more.

There are a wide variety of white crystals to choose from, each with its own unique properties and meaning. Here are 10 of the best white crystals and what they can do for you:

Clear Quartz - The Master Healer

Clear quartz is known as the "master healer" and can be used for a variety of purposes. It is an excellent stone for cleansing and purifying the body and aura.

Many find it helpful in aiding with mental and emotional healing. It is particularly useful in releasing negative emotions and thought patterns, and promoting clarity and peace of mind.

Also known as white quartz, this crystal can also be used to amplify the energy of other stones. In effect, it can be used to boost the power of any stone it is paired with.

Selenite - The Cleansing Crystal

Selenite is an excellent choice for maintaining peace and focus in your surroundings. That’s why it’s popular among those who practice meditation and yoga.

But the best thing about selenite is that it’s self-cleansing. This means it doesn’t require your time to restore its energy because it can do the task by itself. On top of that, it can also be used to cleanse other crystals.

Many also find selenite helpful in guiding them spiritually. This is because it’s known to open the crown chakra and connect you to the higher realms.

Howlite - For Better Connections

Howlite is a stone of patience and understanding. It helps you to be less impatient and more accepting of others. It's also an excellent stone for anyone who suffers from anxiety or stress related to their career or public speaking.

Howlite is also a teacher of communication skills. If you've ever found yourself struggling to express yourself in stressful situations, working with this white stone may help you find the words you need to say. You'll also learn to listen better when others are talking, improving your relationships in many ways.

White Chalcedony - Stone of Emotional Balance

White Chalcedony is the crystal to use when you feel like losing your way. This white crystal keeps you grounded and centered, even under challenging circumstances.

As a balancing stone, it keeps your heart from succumbing to cynicism and despair. That’s why many use it to heal their wounded hearts and restore them to the state where trust and honesty prevail.

White chalcedony has a light and loving energy that wraps you with a sense of security and belongingness. It is also one of the best white crystals for creating more profound, meaningful, and sincere connections with others.

White Opal - Stone of Clarity

White opal is a reflective gem–a perfect reminder that you should look at things from multiple perspectives. Looking at the crystal reminds us not to get bogged down in black and white thinking.

People also believe that white opals make your feelings clearer to you and may heal disordered, chaotic energy. They are also said to improve an unstable flow of luck and can transmute bad energy into something more beneficial.

Iceland Spar - Manifest Your Goals

Iceland spar is a type of crystal similar in structure to quartz. It has therapeutic properties that are very similar to those of quartz, but the two are not quite identical.

While quartz is all about healing and balancing, Iceland spar is said to be more about manifestation. This is the crystal for you if you've been struggling to manifest your goals.

When making wishes, hold an Iceland spar in the palm of your hand to remove any doubts and allow the momentum to take hold.

White Topaz - Stone of Growth

White topaz is a crystal of love and harmony, aiming for you to develop the essence of hope, no matter what is going on around you.

When cut and polished, white topaz resembles a diamond, but raw topaz resembles cloudy quartz. This is because white topaz is a type of quartz.

White topaz is used to grow in all avenues of life. Its goal is to increase one's capacity for learning and a sense of purpose, self-esteem, and motivation. If all four of these avenues are addressed, you'll no longer be able to identify yourself.

Cat's Eye - Calls Forth Lunar Energy

When it comes to moonstones, there are two types: white and rainbow. The most common name for white moonstone is Cat's Eye, distinguishing it from its rival, the rainbow moonstone.

When you wear a cat's eye, you'll be able to harness the full power of the lunar cycle. Sensitiveness and abundance will flow through you without effort as your crown chakra is opened up, encouraging optimism and purity.

White Sodalite - Enhance Your Intuition

Sodalite is a gemstone used for centuries to bring forth truth, intuition, and rationality. It's also known as "soda lime," which is a pretty accurate description of the stone in terms of its properties.

This crystal can be your secret weapon if you're having trouble keeping your thoughts straight. This is because white sodalite is traditionally used to promote clear thinking and communication.

Okenite - Stone for Meditation

Okenite is a rare gemstone found in only a handful of places worldwide. Yet, it's the most expensive form of silica and one of the most beautiful stones on earth.

If you're lucky enough to find some okenite, you should consider using it in your meditation practice. Okenite has an incredible ability to bring clarity to your thoughts and feelings, so you can focus on precisely what it is you want from life. 

It does this by removing artificiality from what you're asking for on a mental level. This leaves all those weird societal expectations behind so that nothing is standing between you and your goals.
