Magical Crystal Wands
Some of our wands are cut and polished from stone by artisans in workshops we have linked to around the world, whilst other samples of our bespoke wands are hand-made from polished points in our UK workshop.
Crystal Wands History
Historically, crystal wands have been a formative part of lore, myth, and legend. From wand-wielding wizards in fairy tales, to magic wands held by magicians and illusionists of the stage, to the mystical wands used for good deeds by fairies in children’s stories, wands have been a strong presence in popular culture throughout the ages.
Wands have also been a major part of certain religion and tradition: Wicca practitioners often craft their own wands, sometimes with crystals, to channel energy and cast spells.
Healing Crystal Wands
Recently, crystal healing has seen a boom in interest. One of the most important tools of the crystal healing trade is the crystal wand.
Crystal wands are incredibly useful in energy work for crystal healers because they can direct healing energy to certain parts of the body to heal emotional and physical ailments associated with these body parts.
Crystal healers also use crystal wands to direct energy to chakra points. By touching the wand at chakra points, the user can cleanse and fuel chakras with energy. The user may feel intense vibrations from the energy transfer. Users are encouraged to hold the wand in their right hand and to ensure the wand is pointed towards the body to direct the energies inwards, as a wand pointed away from the body will draw energy away from the body.
Pointed Crystal Wands
At Madagascan Direct, we have two types of wands available for purchase. The first type, pointed wands, have a soft rounded base at one end and a sharp point at the tip of their other end. Pointed wands are often used in reflexology, where the point is placed against pressure points on the body to direct energy for healing.
Clear Quartz Wands
The transparent, clear variety of Quartz is renowned for its range of powerful healing properties, and is purported to have a highly cleansing aura perfect for multi-purpose healing as it is associated with harmonising all chakras.
Our Clear Quartz wands are cut and then polished in our UK workshop from high-grade Quartz sourced from Antsirabe, Madagascar.
These wands are very special because when exposed to the light, rainbows shimmer and dance across and within the crystal in glorious spectra of colour.
Rose Quartz Wands
Associated with the Heart Chakra, these wands crafted from the Love Stone are believed to exude empathy and love with a calming and nurturing energy.
Madagascan Rose Quartz, of which our pieces were sourced from the Antsirabe region of Madagascar, is considered to be the best in the world.
Our Rose Quartz wands are hand-polished into their sleek shape in our UK workshop and have a lovely mellow pale-pink shade that is sure to entice you.
Smoky Quartz Wands
Renowned for its cleansing properties, crystal healers believe that Smoky Quartz refreshes and detoxes one's energy to release negative emotions.
Due to its earthy colouring, this stone has a strong connection to the Earth and is believed to have a strong grounding effect; for this reason, it is associated with the Root Chakra.
Smoky Quartz from Madagascan Direct is sourced from Madagascar and displays a bright, clear translucence.
The wands are hand-polished in our UK workshop and exhibit warm golden-brown and smoky grey-black tones when exposed to the light.
Rutilated Quartz Wands
Rutilated Quartz combines the cleansing, multi-purpose properties of Clear Quartz with the added metaphysical boost from its rutile inclusions, which are said to lend even more properties to the stone and to improve one's awareness and connection to the world.
Rutilated Quartz sold by Madagascan Direct is sourced from Brazil and then hand-polished in our UK workshop to make bespoke wands.
The Quartz is very bright and vibrant, providing a window through which you can see into the crystal where there are fascinating silver and copper-coloured rutile needle inclusions enshrouded by the Clear Quartz.

Tourmalinated Quartz Wands
Tourmalinated Quartz is a very popular stone and is believed by many crystal healers to help detoxify the body.
Tourmaline, otherwise known as Schorl, is said to have a grounding effect which creates a sense of inner peace in the user, complementing the clarity of mind gifted by the Clear Quartz which it lies within.
The Tourmaline inclusions mean that this stone has a highly protective energy that repels and purifies negative energy, and it can be used on all chakras.
Like Rutilated Quartz, it has the cleansing, multi-purpose healing properties of Clear Quartz as well as added properties due to its inclusions.
Tourmalinated Quartz sold by Madagascan Direct is sourced from Brazil and hand-polished into bespoke wands in our UK workshop. The wands display wonderful clarity and sharp, vibrant black Tourmaline inclusions.
