I prefer to be among crystals when I am buying them. Actually crystals choose you, you just think you are picking them. The body knows what it needs and will put in your path. When I am seeking out a specific crystal I like to be able to hold it and feel the energy. Think about how you want to use it for meditation a cabochon or palm stone works well, earrings made from Amethyst are great as they are near the upper chakras, a cluster,sphere or terminator (generator) is a nice piece for the bedroom and is decorative. If you go into a store the person should be knowledgeable enough to guide you to what you are looking for.
