Do framed crystal grids work and how? Will the frame or the glass block the energy? Are wall-mounted and hanging crystal grids pointing in the wrong direction? Let’s explore!

Do Framed Crystal Grids Still Work?

Since I wrote my book Crystal Grids Power back in 2017, I’ve been asked about this many times. I think it’s time to cover my thoughts on this topic here. Based on the questions and concerns I get from readers there are a few parts to this that I will cover here separately.

Will A Frame Block The Energy Of My Crystal Grid?

I can see why someone might think this. After all, a wooden frame does look a bit like a wall around a crystal grid. The energy of crystals, especially when combined in multiples and into geometric patterns is greatly amplified. The frame really isn’t going to stop its energy field or your intention from being released.

Won’t The Glass Of A Framed Crystal Grid Trap The Energy?

I’ve covered placing crystal grids under glass containers in detail before. My opinion is that glass is made from minerals and crystals from the earth. Glass allows spiritual energy (chi/prana) to easily pass through it as light does. So in my opinion and experience, there is no problem with any glass used on framed crystal grids.

Are Framed Crystal Grids Facing The Wrong Direction?

This is an interesting topic I haven’t heard anyone cover before. In most cases framed, hanging or wall-mounted crystal grids are vertical. This is different from most crystal grids that lay flat. The centre stone in your grid is like an antenna that beams your intention out into the universe. So what happens with these wall grids?

Remember that the Universe is not just above us, it’s in all directions. Our planet spins and cycles around the sun. Therefore your crystal grid will be beaming all over the place regardless of its location.

Will The Glue Used To Attach Crystals Weaken Or Harm Them?

There are different ways makers of vertical crystal grids attach their crystals but most seem to use glue. Many grid makers, crafters and artists use a glue gun with non-toxic glue. A bit of glue just isn’t going to harm or weaken the energy of a crystal. If you don’t like it you could look for grids that use wire instead but they are not very easy to find.

TRUTH BOMB: As a jewellery designer I can tell you that most set gemstone jewellery including rings, piercings, earings and pendants use some jewellers glue to help secure the stone.

Why Would You Use A Framed Crystal Grid?

I have one framed crystal grid that I bought on Etsy a few years ago (shown above). One of the benefits of these is that they save space plus they are easy to clean. However, although I find them beautiful, I much prefer to make my own crystal grids. With ready-made grids, you can’t change them or reuse the crystals. Framed crystal grids can get quite expensive too.

With a regular crystal grid, you can work to a set pattern or design your own. The crystals can be swapped, added to or reused in other grids at a later date. If you want to learn how to do this yourself, check out my beginner-friendly complete guide Crystal Grids Power.
