This is the most asked about question and right question to ask. When I started studying and working with #crystal I had same questions. Here is the brief note on how Crystal works or how one should work or connect with crystal.
Crystals have a unique orderly internal crystalline structure. The exact structure is unique to each type. These structures create, absorb, anchor, or radiate energy. As we all know how color have positive or negative impact on us, Color has a powerful effect. Many black crystals, such as Black Tourmaline for instance, have a structure that captures energy. This means that the crystal holds onto detrimental energies such as electromagnetic “smog,” or negative thoughts, and transmutes their toxic effect. They are protective, too. Wearing one keeps you safe, widely recommend for everyone to carry one. The color is created by minute traces of other minerals.
When you become the keeper of a new crystal, always take time to attune or connect to it. Open the palm chakras and sit quietly holding your crystal in your hands or rub it with thumb and index finger or hold it one Palm and place another Palm on top. Breathe gently and focus your attention on the crystal. Ask that your stone works with you in love and truth for your highest good. Half close your eyes and simply gaze at your crystal. Ask it to communicate with you in the most appropriate way for you. Continue to breathe gently and be receptive to the response, which may come in the form of a bodily sensation, a feeling, or an intuition. After a few minutes, notice how you feel. Are you calm and relaxed, or twitchy and jittery? Is an emotion rising? Does a particular part of your body tingle or ache? Is one of your chakras lighting up— becoming hot, energized, and active, possibly fluttering, tingling, and fizzing? Move your crystal around your body to check out sensations and intuitions. If it feels good to keep it in a particular place, leave it there for a while. Don’t force anything, simply go with what feels right. Let the crystal be your guide.
Ask yourself if your crystal is dropping thoughts into your mind. If so, trust the process. Or has your stone found another way to communicate, for example through bodily or intuitive sensation? Remember, crystals are creative beings. After few minutes or so thank the crystal for its work, put it to one side, and consciously disconnect your attention from it unless your intuition tells you to keep it in your pocket or somewhere close by. I am sure you will get the answer.

I prefer to carry Crystal, the one which has given me the MOST POSTIVE VIBRATIONS, in my pocket while others are use as per needs. Do not forget to charge your Crystal(s) at specific time to keep them energized. Also talk to them whenever you get time, crystals will become your trusted friend.
