In 2020 we will take all the positive energy we can get our hands on which is precisely why crystals may just be one of the most underrated decor pieces you can incorporate into your home this year. Whether you believe the hype or not is up to you, but the consensus is that crystals can emit energy through a process called the piezoelectric effect which is a fancy way of saying crystals have the ability to convert external energy and transfer the positive vibes onto your own self. Irregardless of it being true or not, crystals are beautiful and we will never say no to positive vibes and good energy alongside them!

Continue readings for a few ideas that will inspire you to bring more crystal energy into your life through your home!

If you’ve ever had wood furniture, you know a coaster is an absolute must in order to keep those pesky condensation stains away. This is where a crystal or geode cut coaster takes center stage. Not only will a crystal coaster help protect your furniture, it will help energize the cups that sit on it, making your drinks not only delicious, but full of positive energy! Anthropology has been selling these for years in every colour imaginable, but you can find many authentic crystal coasters online and in home decor shops nowadays.
