Have you ever wondered what are the best stones to travel with? What size, which type? How do I pack them?? I got you covered! As someone who does regional theatre and bounces around from city to city a few months at a time, I have figured some things out 🙂

Firstly, take the crystals that resonate with you the most! Is there one you work with daily? That you meditate with? TAKE IT. You will miss it if you don’t. Secondly, I always take protective stones. That includes aegirine and black tourmaline. I want my energy protected, and free of absorbing anyone else’s negativity.

My personal staples to travel with are amethyst, rose quartz, carnelian, clear quartz, and selenite. If there is a funky one off I have, or I’m drawn to something intuitively then I’ll take that too! Now, because I like so many stones, I take my tumbled ones. They are the perfect pocket or bra size! I can also place them in a satin scarf or satin bag. It keeps them safe and scratch free! Sometimes I’ll take my palm stones if they’re not too big, but I definitely don’t take my bigger geodes or more fragile ones.

Remember, the crystals are there to assist your journey no matter where you are traveling to! So go with your instinct ! There is no wrong or right stone. Just the one that is perfect for you!
