Crystals are one of the first tools that helped hone my concept of spirituality. Besides the fact that they’re pretty, their formation process is also an amazing work of nature. For millions of years, these gems go through a lot of transformations that result in multicolor rocks containing the energy of the Universe. How can you not want some of that good vibes at home or part of your jewelry collection, right?
If you’re a crystal collector newbie, it might be difficult for you to identify which ones are real from fake. I have to admit; it’s a tough job. That’s why I’m mindful of where I source my crystals from, as I’m inviting the energy of the shop in my life too. Plus, it’s heartbreaking to have to shell out a lot of money for colored glass.
There is one way to avoid getting scammed: buying from reputable crystal stores! Below is a list of where to get high-quality crystals in the Philippines.
1. The Mala Tree
The Mala Tree is the first store I bought the majority of my crystals from. Back then, they didn’t have a physical store yet, so it was cool to see them grow over the years. The last time I bought in person, they cleansed my new crystals via a singing bowl. They sell high-quality mala beads, bracelets, pendants, tumbled stones, clusters, and geodes. There’s just undeniable good energy about the place, and the shop owners know their stuff, too.
Online Shop: https://www.themalatree.com/
Physical Store: The Mala Tree Boutique 2/F No. 189 Maginhawa Street, Sikatuna Village, Diliman, Quezon City
Price range: They have raw stones starting from P80 to high-quality rare items at P5,000. Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a collector, you won’t be disappointed.
2. 5D Healing Crystals
Previously known as Healing Crystals and Gems Philippines, the 5D Healing Crystals shop has been around in Makati Cinema Square for a while. They were gracious enough to fix two of my bracelets after I gathered some of my loose beads, and they did a great job with it. When you step inside the store, you can feel the good juju of the place. Besides raw and rare gems, they also have crystal tower generators, sage and incense sticks, and runes.

Price range: About the same as The Mala Tree (P100~5,000) with lots of affordable stuff. As of writing, they have some items on sale on their website.
3. Made by KCA
If you want to wear your crystals and match them with your modern style, Made by KCA will be one of your go-to stores. They sell bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings featuring either polished or unpolished stones against silver or gold chains. They’re usually spotted in bazaars, but if you’re not lucky enough to catch them, you can also order online. Made by KCA makes wearing crystals hip and fashionable.

4. Biyaya ni Bathala
Established in 2011, Biyaya ni Bathala Blessing Gift Shop is an online store that sells good luck charms and gems to their customers. Besides crystals, you can also find other esoteric products here like cosmic healing disks, energy clearing sprays, and medallions. This is a shop to look into if you want to grow your collection and venture onto other magical things. Check them out if something like this resonates with you.

5. Indigo Crystals
When you visit any of Indigo Crystals’ social media pages, you’ll already feel the positive energy flowing from your screens. At least that’s how I feel whenever I check out their page. 🙂 I haven’t had the pleasure of buying here, but I have inquired before. From the photos alone, you can see that their crystals are high-quality. Plus, they also charge it with Reiki, so it’s filled with healing energy before it gets to you.

Physical Store: N/A
Price Range: Tumbled stones start at P200, bracelets at P400. Geodes and clusters can reach thousands depending on size, weight, and grade.
6. Flow Retreats
I first learned about Flow Retreats four years ago when they were organizing wellness events outside of the metro. I went with my yoga buddies to their bazaar and did nature activities—a trip I still treasure up to this day. I recently learned that besides workshops and healthy eats, they sold crystals too! They also have sage sticks and palo santo ritual kits, if that’s something up your alley.
Online Shop: http://www.flowretreats.com/shop/
Physical Store: N/A
Price range: Palo santo sticks at P150, crystal wands and smudge sticks at P300-P500, crystal towers at P1,000+
7. Fake Alchemy
I’ve been a silent follower of Fake Alchemy for a while now, and the jewelry Mai Evangelista makes is just gorgeous. It’s only a bonus that you get real crystals and gemstones from her work. She also accepts commissions, subject to her availability. Her rings and jewelry are notorious for being sold out in seconds after posting a new collection. I hope someday I can score a piece, too!

Physical Store: N/A
Price range: I wish I knew! But I imagine they’re worth the beauties she makes. Custom pieces would definitely warrant a DM.
OM.MNL is also a great source of earth-mind healing crystals in the Philippines. They have a variety of crystals differing in shape and size, so you can pick whether you want something to keep in your pocket or display at your home. They also offer astrology 101 and tarot reading classes for those who are interested. Workshops have shifted to Zoom during the COVID-19 health crisis.

Physical Store: Along EDSA at Flair Towers, Reliance Corner Pines Streets, Mandaluyong City
Price range: They usually post their prices on their Instagram captions. It will depend on size and rarity, and it’s usually within the same range of the other crystal shops in this list.
9. Crystal Age
Last but not least on this list is Crystal Age. Besides the usual pendants, raw gems, and huge crystal generator towers, the shop also sells crystal money trees, pipes, and other carved figurines made out of crystals. If that’s not enough variety for you, they also have bracelets, rings, cabochons, and geometric-shaped stones. Pretty cool, right?

Physical Stores: 102 Maginhawa Street, Quezon City | 51 Magiting Street, Quezon City
Price Range: Some prices are posted directly at their Instagram captions, while others need to be reserved via DM before you can buy. Tall crystal generators may reach P5,000; pendants may be in the P1,000-1,300 range. There are more affordable options, though—it all depends on the size and style like most shops!
