While we don't know which crystals exactly mega popstar Adele uses but she shared that they helped her with her nerves ahead of her comeback show a few years back.
Speaking to the Sun in 2016 she said: "I was so nervous about my comeback show and I was panicking. I was out of practice and I was busy being a Mum. But it was one of the best shows I’ve ever done and I had these bloody crystals in my hand … Then the Grammys came and I lost my f***ing crystals!
"I had a gig two or three days before them and I think I left them at this venue. It turned out to be the worst, most disastrous performance that I have ever done. Well, apart from one really early on when I was doing a gig in Angel and I got so drunk I fell off my chair. But I got some new crystals now and everything’s been going well.”
Treasured since ancient times this gemstone never fails to be in fashion. The ancient Egyptians first used this striking bright stone in jewellery and as a talisman to protect against danger.
Today, Turquoise is still believed to protect us from negative energy and bring us good fortune. It’s worth keeping some Turquoise handy when starting a new venture or embarking on a journey.

Victoria Beckham has spoken of her own love of crystals, telling Allure magazine in 2011: "I’m a very spiritual person. I travel with my crystals. I’ve got all different colors. It’s just something that I’m into. I am quite a superstitious person. I don’t walk under a ladder. If I see a magpie, I salute."
Of course we can't talk about crystals without mentioning the celebrity who kicked off the interest ten years ago – Spencer Pratt.
Speaking to Life and Style in February 2010 he revealed: "I am so addicted to crystals, it’s like a sickness. I’ve spent $500,000 on crystals this year. I checked my bank account last night, and I have $203 left …[On Valentine’s Day] we hung out with our puppies and cuddled with our crystal. It’s supposed to bring love. There’s a whole science to this — I’m not crazy.”
And his wife seemed as infected by their power too, telling Vice in 2016: "I was not in the right mind frame to make that decision [for plastic surgery]. I was in so much pain. I was literally crying every day … I felt the crystals were helping.
"Whether it was just metaphorically, or just a placebo effect, [they helped]. Spencer was like, ‘Wow! These crystals are really working’ too. We were just not at a good place at the end of The Hills ."
And judging by Spencer's Instagram feed, he's still very serious about his crystals!
