In Feng Shui, a crystal point is thought to bring great harmony and strong luck to the beholder. Crystals are believed to emanate a force to bring good luck and great balance into the environment. A standing crystal with a single point is also called a Generator. It is an excellent tool to aid focus and clarity of intention. It is also a tool often used in healing to direct where the luck or energy should move. Pointed inward, it channels energy to your body. Outward, it draws away energy. A pointed crystal maximizes the stone’s healing properties.

Popular among students, crystal points are supposed to bring you luck and success in your studies. A common practice is to hold a crystal point when you are studying and during an exam to help to clear, focus and energize your mind, bringing you answers more quickly and with more accuracy. People who use crystals in this way believe that each crystal becomes attuned to their owner’s energy and that you should not use a crystal belonging to someone else.
