A lot of crystals in chakra necklaces also come with additional emotional benefits, beyond chakra balancing. For example, certain crystals absorb negative energy while other crystals bring peace of mind and mental clarity.

Chakra Pendants

You can also find chakra pendant necklaces. These usually feature one crystal which is specifically chosen to heal a single chakra, but some pendants will combine multiple crystals. Chakra pendant necklaces made from sterling silver are said to have antimicrobial properties that can help ward off illness. 

Some chakra pendant necklaces will simply have a chakra symbol as the pendant rather than a crystal, while some necklaces combine both. Even a simple chakra symbol necklace can serve as a helpful reminder to focus on your chakras as you go about your day.
