Do healing crystals work? We're actually torn on this one

Crystal healing is back and one of the most controversial New Age or New Thought healing methods. We have been seeing more and more crystals on Instagram and social media as a whole. They are obviously pretty and make for great decoration in your home or office but do they heal you? 
So many questions, so many crystals, so little time. Crystals are suppose to help with many aspects of your mental and physical health, so let's get into it and explore what crystals actually do and how they can impact your well-being every day.
 How Do They Work? Using crystals for healing properties is not a new concept. Crystals have been used in healing for centuries in ancient civilizations, specifically ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Greece.
Here's the idea behind it: crystals have a vibration, you have a vibration. Aligning those vibrations can have beneficial outcomes. Since you are made of energy and vibration, crystals raise your vibration and energy and improve your health and well-being exponentially.
The structure of crystals matches the crystalline structures in your body such as the water in your cells, interconnective tissues, collagen, and elastin. So crystals are powerful transmitters and transducers of your intention for yourself, whether it's health, love, joy, abundance, or peace.
                                                              
Does Science Back It?
Though Western medicine has not proven the efficacy of crystalline healing applied to the human body (there's no scientific backing to be found), modern science has used crystals in technologies we use today. You use crystalline technologies every day if you use a laptop, laser, a clock, or an LCD (liquid-crystal display). Western science has researched crystals for their informational and storage capacities, so crystals are used in technologies to store and transmit vast amounts of information. However, science has yet to explore subtle technologies on the level of intuition and electromagnetism the way ancient civilizations did.
                                                             
                                           
It is easy to dismiss these ancient practices as primitive, but there are many areas that Western science is still young in, that it hasn't fully explored vibrational technologies in its application to human health. Quantum physics, however, with its study of energy, frequency, vibration, intention, and consciousness completely aligns with and affirms the electromagnetic and vibrational properties and capacities of vibrational technologies such as crystals. 
Still doubting their healing powers? We get it and we have tried crystal healing. Here's the deal, it's SO subtle. You cannot see subtle energies like music, a flower's fragrance, or the peace, relaxation, and healing you feel from being in nature. Yet, you feel them.  At the very least, there's no harm in trying. While there aren't studies backing it in Western science, crystals can definitely have a placebo effect — and that is actually quite powerful and can still have a positive effect on your mood.  So which ones should you get?
Here's a few must-have crystals to get started:
