Crystal wands are a common tool used by healers to heal the people around the world. Wands come in many different shapes and sizes, and also in many varieties of stone as well. Wands may be long or short, and the cylinder can be smooth or faceted. They can be pointed at one end and rounded at the other, or they can be rounded on both ends, or pointed at both ends. Most wands are shaped and polished, but rough natural pointed crystals, such as quartz, can also be used as a healing wand. Healing wands gather and direct energy.
