Regardless of whether or not you believe in the purported healing powers of crystals, one thing we can all pretty much agree on is that they're gorgeous to look at. Rich purple amethysts, rosy pink quartz, sparkly moonstone, or green jade—we really can't pick our favorite. These naturally occurring beauties feature the colors of the rainbow in all their stunning, sparkly glory and are also believed to have health and wellness benefits, too.

To embrace the true beauty of nature's jewels and gems, you don't have to be bound to keeping them by your bedside or carrying them around in your purse. Why not rock geode-inspired nail art, too? Ahead, find 24 of our favorite ways to rock the geode nail trend, no crystal charging required.
