Before we begin on how to increase your huat with crystals, we’ll briefly discuss the principles of the Feng Shui Bagua areas. The Bagua, or the Feng Shui energy map, consists of eight life areas, each of which is associated with different attributes. One can activate a gua through a colour, shape or element (Cho, 2021).
Take a look at our Bagua Guide below:
Check out our Citrine collection here.
Citrine is known for bringing in and maintaining wealth, abundance and success. As such, Citrines should be placed in the Wealth and Prosperity sector or the South-East area of your home (Bhawana, 2021).
Check out our Sparkly Green Aventurine Palms and Hearts here
Aventurine is a great crystal for growth, health and luck. As such, they should be placed in the Center area of your residence to activate the Health Gua (Keeley, 2022).

Hence, for relationships and romance, Rose Quartz should be situated in the South-West (Love and Marriage sector) area of your residence.
