Like any topic discussed, I invite you to deepen in order to create a personal opinion, without restoring crystallized on prejudices, even more so when it comes to Crystal therapy.

By placing the stones according to criteria established by those who are experts in crystal therapy, in specific points of the human body, so that they can emanate purifying energies and that the body to be "treated" can feel them and benefit from them.

Crystal therapy and chakras
There Crystal therapy and its supposed powers are often associated with states of the spirit and chakras. Let's see how. The first Chakra, Muladhara or "Base", is red and concerns the rectal, bladder, anal and colon areas, the Earth as a reference element and associated with it as crystalsobsidian, the black onyx, the Smoked quartz, Ruby, Black Tourmaline, Garnet and Hematite.
The second is called Visuddha or "Sacred", is associated with orange and concerns the area below the umbilical and the reproductive organs, has water as a reference and excellent crystals including Amber and Carnelian. We come to chakra three, Manipura or "Solar Plexus", yellow chakra it is associated with the digestive organs, the liver, and then the stomach, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas and small intestine. Fire is its element and its stones are Citrine, Topaz, Tiger's Eye and Sulfur.
Moving on to the fourth chakra (Anahata or "Heart"), green or pink in color, concerning the heart, lungs and rib cage, as stones we find according to Crystal therapy green agate, aventurine, pink coral, jade, malachite, opal, rose quartz, emerald, green and pink tourmaline. The fifth chakra is known as Visuddha or "Throat" and is blue, it affects the respiratory functions and the voice, loves crystals such as amazonite, aquamarine, chalcedony, fluorite, moonstone, pearl, blue topaz and turquoise.
The penultimate chakra is the front one, Ajina, violet and located in the Third eye, has as an element the light as crystals, amethyst and rock crystal, passing to the last, Sahasrara or "Corona", as a reference color we find purple or white and the head as the physical seat. There Crystal therapy associates amethyst, diamond and crystal.
Crystal therapy and zodiac signs
Once the stones are associated with the chakra, it is child's play to also find its zodiac signs, specifying that those who love a certain stone, or find it suitable for their health or style needs, may very well disobey these "rules" of Crystal therapy.
At the first chakra we find the zodiac signs Scorpio, Aries, Capricorn, among others also Cancer, third Leo and Capricorn, fourth Cancer, Taurus and Libra, fifth and sixth respectively Virgo, Gemini, Aquarius and Sagittarius, Pisces.
For those who do not find themselves, there is the seventh chakra that embraces all the zodiac signs, its stones become the "jokers" of Crystal therapy. From personal experience it happens to take a look at signs, sites or small books on crystals and zodiac signs and often the associations change, so I find it important that each find his stone, the one he believes will do him good or that it fits him well. Sometimes, you just need to be convinced.
