Natural minerals containing magical properties
Used as a demonic alarm system or a cage
Crystals are natural minerals or stones containing magical properties. They primarily used by witches in the practice of magic. There are several types of crystals, including pyrite and siderite, which have different magical functions.
Pyrite crystals are able to detect the presence of evil. When exposed to evil forces, they resonate a harmonic tone, basically functioning as a demonic alarm system. When hosting a magical gathering, a young Penny Halliwell told her guests to bless crystals and hide them outside of the manor to act as a perimeter.
The Crystal Cage
A Crystal Cage is a magical container formed with five crystals placed in the shape of a pentagram, capable of trapping enemies within an electrified force field. Once trapped, it is impossible to teleport out of the cage.
A Crystal Ball is a magical artifact used by fortune-tellers and clairvoyants for divination. Crystal Balls are round spheres created from glass or crystal. They are transparent and can reveal what the user wishes to see.
Light of Eternal Love
The Light of Enteral Love was a magical lamp given to Leo Wyatt and Piper Halliwell by his fellow Whitelighters when they held a wedding reception in the Upper Regions. The light was meant to represent eternal love.
Ronyx Crystals are an ancient form of magical voyeurism which predates even the crystal ball. The black crystals can be used to observe and record events, while the red crystals can project these events in the form of a hologram.
Crystal of Kasimar
The Crystal of Kasimar is a magical jewel and its powers are currently dormant. When Sollal, working for Zira, learned a dormant power had been activated, he thought it was the crystal because of the frequency of its emissions and its magical intensity, before realizing it was actually the Golden Belt of Gaea.
The Dream Crystal is a jewel that allows the user to enter people's dreams. It can be used to enter several people's dreams as long as they are in close proximity. It can also be used to leave the dream.
