About This Quiz

For thousands of years, civilizations across the globe have utilized gems, minerals and crystals for everything from aesthetic adornment to medicinal healing. In some of the earliest references, the ancient Sumerians incorporated crystals in magical potions, and the ancient Egyptians wore vibrant jewelry made from turquoise, quartz, and lapis lazuli. The Egyptians also buried their deceased with quartz laid upon their foreheads, likely as a positive omen. 

To this day, many people believe that harnessing the power of stones can restore balance, improve health and bolster spiritual vitality. Whether one meditates while holding a chunk of amethyst or keeps citrine by their nightstand, these stones are thought to produce profound effects. According to these crystal practitioners, they can help you realize your goals or overcome emotional strife. 

Outside of the physical world, these stones also manifest in the souls of each individual. Just like each stone possesses varying powers - for instance, amethyst enhances psychic abilities and carnelian boosts motivation - each person does, too. Regardless of what you encounter in life, your soul stone will always help guide you through. So, which soul stone lives inside you?
