Among a certain set of spiritual enthusiasts, healing crystals are hot right now — so hot, Instagram influencers are adding them to their water. If you're not on the rose quartz bandwagon yet but would like to be, finding where to get the best (and most ethically sourced) stones can be overwhelming. And, considering how comforting and meaningful crystals can be, it's important to get yours from a trusted shop.

These sites usually feature curated selections and customizable stone sets, and have knowledgeable, mindful founders behind them. Here, we've selected eight of those standout retailers. Read on to find your new favorite store to browse.
