Why Wealthy Homeowners Are Putting Crystals Under Their Floors

Can burying a citrine on your property improve the positive energy of your living space?

Far from choosing crystals for their decorative qualities, homeowners are now seriously—and openly—investing in them to improve the positive energy of their living spaces. Rashia Bell and Elizabeth Kohn, founders of the Cris­talline, work with clients in New York City to place crystals in rooms and even under floors to “equalize and harmonize” a home.

“So often we live in spaces that don’t fully suit us,” says Bell, who sug­gests considering the health of a residence the same way you would consider your personal health. Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro of Energy Muse perform similar services in California, using shung­ite for the corners of rooms, rose quartz and amethyst beneath beds and tables, and selenite for windowsills and replaces.

“It may seem simple,” says Askinosie, “but people in your home will notice the shift.”

A litmus test for that is now on the market: a $38 million house (pictured above), with interi­ors by Michael Smith, in Pacific Palisades, which has citrines and other stones around its perimeter. “The owners are leaving them in,” says Elisabeth Halsted of Berkshire Hathaway, who is selling the house.

The buyer, she adds, can keep them or “dig up a little treasure” upon arrival.
