The workplace is filled with all kinds of characters and can see you in all number of difficult situations. Even the most confident of business women and men can have their off days – and who can blame them – and need a little assistance in some areas – that’s where these top 10 crystals come in handy!
1 Banish jealousy
Tired of dealing with bitchy work mates? Put an end to office rivalry by placing a piece of black onyx in a communal area. It’s said to protect you from the negative thoughts of others, and will ensure any petty, playground gossiping is quickly nipped in the bud.
2 Encourage promotions & pay rises
Boost your chances of promotion and a bigger pay packet by putting a citrine crystal under your pillow, or keeping one in your handbag. It’s thought to help you manifest your dream job and income, and will have you climbing the career ladder before you know it.
3 Strengthen leadership skills
More of a bashful Betty than a mouthy Marilyn? Worried your shyness will prevent you from getting the promotion you deserve? Turn yourself from a worrier into a warrior by harnessing the magical power of green aventurine. Keep one in your pocket to boost your leadership skills, and help you tackle problems with complete confidence
4 Stimulate creativity
The next time you’re finding it difficult to motivate yourself at work, try wearing a sodalite crystal around your neck. Ideal for those of you involved in artistic industries, it’s thought to unlock your inner creativity, and help you reawaken your dormant talents.
5 Promote confidence for public speaking
Kick that public-speaking phobia to the curb once and for all by wearing a sapphire crystal, or keeping one in your pocket. It’s believed to help you express your
ideas with greater confidence, and will have you nattering away in front of large audiences in no time.
6 Boost profits

7 Improve concentration
Stop your mind from wandering at work, and stay focused on what you’re doing by placing a piece of hematite on your desk. Known as the stone of the mind, it’s thought to strengthen your ability to concentrate, and will stop you dreaming about George Clooney when you should be knuckling down!
8 Boost your memory
Constantly forgetting everything? Known for having the memory of a goldfish (three seconds, in case you were wondering)? Then azurite’s the stone for you. Keep a piece in your pocket to help you remember important data, and never be caught looking clueless again.
9 Embrace learning
Ace any test you’re given (or help your kids excel in theirs) by keeping a piece of green tourmaline on your desk.

10 Be dedecisive
Forever doubting every choice you make? Try wearing a piece of amber-adorned jewellery. It’s thought to boost your decision-making skills, and will stop you getting all flustered the next time you’re asked to choose something.
