Celebs Are Obsessed With Healing Crystals, but What the Eff Are They?

By

In case you haven't noticed, crystals are having a moment. Gone are the days where "healing crystals" were something only your hippie grandma used to peddle. Now they're being touted by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Adele. But it's not for fashion purposes. Collectors say crystals have special healing powers that flush negative energy and even cure ailments. 

Although crystals have been around forever, they've only recently started taking off again around 2017, with Google searches for "crystal healing" increasing by 40 percent just over the past year alone. Although there are tons of hip retailers and Etsy sellers taking advantage of the trend (Free People sells clear crystal quartz for the insane price of $119), its biggest enthusiasts are celebrities.
