Six Ways to Use Crystals in Home Decor

I began my crystal collection back in middle school, around the time my friends and I thought we could learn mystical secrets through the right pairing of incense, crystals, and potions (incidentally, this was just before we came to terms with the fact that we weren't going to get our letters from Hogwarts.) After rediscovering the old wooden box that contained the collection, I've been finding ways to incorporate the small treasures into my surroundings. These are some of my favorites. 

1. Arranged on a surface   This works best on a simple, uncluttered table or shelf.

2. Collected in a handmade display   You can buy the one pictured here. Or, if you're feeling handy, you can scrap together one of your own.

3. Tossed into a bowl   A close cousin to arranging them on a table. Leaving crystals out in a bowl invites guests to pick them up and rifle through the collection.

4. As a solitary statement piece   A favorite piece of crystal can easily stand alone as a statement piece on a bedside table or end table. (A larger stone is especially striking.)

5. Tucked into a garden wall   If you're lucky enough to have a large geode, you can add a bit of magic to your garden by tucking the sucker alongside other stones in a rock wall. 

6. Bookending your library   These beautiful geodes can be purchased on Etsy, but any set of heavy crystals make for stunning bookends.
