Which Crystals to Pair with?
A grounding stone such as Jasper or Garnet is also beneficial to complement Prehnite, they will tie you to reality and make sure that you are using your intuition for practical and useful purposes.
You should avoid combining Prehnite with other stones that rule the emotions, such as Moonstone or Ruby. They can be volatile combinations. An aggressive emotional stone like ruby can create feelings of anger, rage, or uncontrollable emotional outbursts.
