Planets, such as Mars, Uranus, Pluto, and Jupiter are connected to some of these crystals, which may activate certain chakras, bring protection to an individual, as well as cleanse the spirit.




The amethyst is a mineral that is known to provide a decent amount of spiritual cleansing and development that may help individuals calm their mind and attain a higher level of thought.
