Today I went to a gem and mineral show, and before I went, I asked around to see if anyone was searching for a specific crystal or stone.
In the past, I have had people name a specific crystal they were looking for, and I have had others say they were looking for a crystal for a specific purpose.
I know when I went shopping for someone else for the first time, I wondered how to choose a crystal intuitively for another person.
I couldn’t just go to the store and pick up a random crystal, nor could I look up the purposes of each crystal in a crystal book and have one picked out before entering the store. First, you never know what the store will have in stock, and second, that crystal may not be right for that person.
I had to find one that felt right for that person when I got there. So I made it up as I went along.
It’s a simple process really; it’s the same process as buying for yourself with a couple of steps added. If you haven’t already read the article, check out Crystal Buying Guidelines: How to choose a crystal that resonates with you.

Crystal buying for someone else:
Visualize the person in front of you
Imagine that the person you are purchasing the crystal for is standing in front of you. See as many details of that person as you can.
Focus on their name and energy
It helps to repeat their name a few times and imagine how their energy feels to you.
Call their spiritual team forward to assist you
I use the term “spiritual team” to mean your spirit guides and angels that are here to help you on your journey in this life. If you are new to this idea, I would recommend checking out Ask Your Guides: Connecting to Your Divine Support System. This is a great book to introduce you to spiritual guides and the various roles they play in your life.
Every person has the capability to call on spirit. You do not have to see or even feel them. You just need to set the intention and call them forward.
Inform their spiritual team of your intention of searching for a crystal for that individual and ask them to assist you in choosing one that is in alignment with that person’s highest good at this time. They will most likely already be aware that the person has asked you to look for a crystal for them. You can ask your spiritual team to help translate as they are the ones in alignment with your vibration.
Note: If you have any concerns that lower energy spirits may come through, you can ask Archangel Michael to watch over you to ensure that only your highest good and the highest good of the other person comes through. You can also ask your spiritual guides to put a protective energy around you to ensure that only light spirits come through. Check out A Protection Wrap for Your Wellbeing for more information about my favourite protective wrap. You can also set the intention only to communicate with light spirits. You have the power to decide what you allow into your life. That strength exists within you.
Pay attention to the crystals that catch your eye or pop into your mind.
This process is done by using your intuition.
You may be attracted to a group of stones visually. You may have the name of a stone pop into your mind. You you may see a stone in your mind. Or the group of crystals you are drawn to might just feel right.
It all depends on how you intuitively receive information. It varies depending on the person, but we all have this capability, it’s just a matter of practice.
Whatever group of stones or crystals you are drawn to in your way is a good indicator of what that person could use at that time. Trust your intuition.
So you’ve narrowed it down to the type of stone or crystal, now you need to pick one.
Today, I set my intention and passed by tables and tables of crystals until I stopped and the individuals name crossed my mind. I knew that it was the right group of stones for that person. I asked which stone wanted to work with the individual. I then picked up the one that I was visually attracted to, and I felt a tingling feeling in my hand. I knew that it was the right stone for that person.
Do you have a different process you use? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.
