Hands up on who loves crystals? If you’re reading this article, you’re probably swinging your hand in the air right now or, at the very least, you’ve developed a curiosity towards them and want to know more.
Crystals are extraordinary little things that have an ability to help us in almost every area of our lives when we manage to tap into their power. The object of the crystal is to work with you to help you achieve your aims, whether it is related to work, love, relationships, health and many more.
But what happens when you pair a crystal with another crystal? The power of crystals is doubled!
Being strategic about the crystals you want to pair is something that comes more easily once you are familiar with different crystals and their meanings (or you might be one of those gifted intuitive types who simply knows which ones to pair up.) Crystals do an amazing job on their own, but these little fellows are extra happy when they’ve got another shiny gem to work with because it means their own powers are enhanced and they get a friend to spend time with.
This article will focus on seven crystals in particular and their perfect match. Think of finding your soulmate – it’s a bit like that for these crystals. Read on to find out more!

It also promotes self-love and self-acceptance. It dissolves negative energy and helps us to be more understanding and empathetic with ourselves and our loved ones.
Angelite is the “angel” crystal. It has a gentle, soothing energy and helps us tap into the best version of ourselves.

Selenite is a crystal that instills a sense of peace, making it perfect for meditation work and heightening your spiritual awareness.
As a pair, these two help you tap into your intuition (Moonstone) and help you view things with greater clarity (Selenite). They are especially potent under the Full and New Moons.
