Recommended Crystals For Tarot & Oracle Card Readings
One of these will surprise you!
There are many benefits to combining crystals with Tarot readings. Crystals bring cleansing and healing energy to any space, and the protective crystals are especially useful on your reading table. Crystals can be used for cleansing your Tarot and Oracle cards, as well as warding off lower vibrations and energies that may interfere with your reading. Crystals can also improve your readings, your ability to understand the meanings behind the cards, and for empowering the cards themselves.
Here are some crystal recommendations to enhance your readings:
- Black Tourmaline
Black Tourmaline is one of the most popular stones used in spiritual practices. It is most commonly used for protection.

- Clear Quartz
A multi-purpose crystal, clear quartz can be programmed for just about anything. Program a clear quartz stone or wand with the intention of protecting your Tarot or Oracle deck from any unwanted energies or interference. Quartz crystals can absorb negative vibrations.
