Look forward to your replies.

In my purse I have a rose quartz and a tiger iron.

I used to carry a piece of sodalite around darn near everywhere - it was just the perfect size and shape for me to fidget with.  But I fidgeted it away somewhere and I've no idea where it went.

I also have a bracelet which I often wear that has a big amethyst and a bunch of pearls on it.  That one connects me to my goddess.  The amber sun pendant I have is in honor of Apollo, but doesn't really CONNECT me to Him - that would require the ability to get away in the first place. Wink

Uh...  This, down to, er, the...  amber...  sun...  erm.  Great minds think alike?  Evil twin powers activate?

There's other amber jewelry I wear that serves the same purpose, most notably a ring, but the sun pendant came first and it's the most constant thing.  (Earrings come out at night, ring gets taken off for messy stuff and bathing and stuff--the pendant nearly never comes off.)  I wasn't going to respond because I'm not sure this is the sort of "carrying crystals" that the OP meant--I don't carry them for magical purposes or anything, it's just...  sort of there, much the same way I wear my wedding ring or carry pictures of my hubby and daughter around with me.  But they are stones that are usually on me, I suppose.

I have at some points in the past worn amethyst (rings or, once or twice, pendant) in hopes of attracting healing energy.  I think that's about the only time I've really "carried crystals" in that sense.

I keep hematite in my purse, pretty much for the same purpose as Heartshadow's worried away stone  Wink. I keep a charm I made of speckled Jasper hanging around my rearview mirrior in my car. I also have an anklet that I made out of tiger's eye and quartz that I usually wear when I leave the house. I have various different stones around my house that serve dual purposes, the second purpose being decoration.

I'm near Manchester and there are quite a few places to go to get crystals identified.

I always have crystals on me. I don't go anywhere without them. I wear a large Bloodstone pendant and I haven't taken it off in 7 years!

1. Yes, I do.
2. I wear them at home, at work, when I'm running errands...
3. Two are rings, but I consider them part and parcel to the package: My diamond engagement ring and my peridot ring (it's my birthstone). I also wear two crystals on a chain around my neck: A black onyx for focusing and a tiger's eye dedicated to my patron deity. If I leave the house, they are on. After I get dressed for the day, I'm wearing all of it.

Always.  I'm a stone junkie -- even have a geology degree.  I have some I wear/carry because they're symbols of something and others just because they're pretty or they speak to me for some reasons.

I don't wear all of these all the time, of course.  I switch around depending on what I need at any particular time.

Symbols:
*  blue opal -- Brighid -- wear all the time
*  aquamarine ring -- Brighid -- wear all the time
*  Connemara marble bracelet -- Brighid (that kind of marble is only found in Ireland) -- wear all the time
*  unidentified blue stone -- Brighid -- wear during my Cill shifts
*  green tourmaline ring -- anniversary gift from my husband -- wear all the time
*  blue opal bracelet -- anniversary gift from my husband
*  garnet set in lotus charm -- for my grandmother (I mined the stone when I was little, on a family trip to Franklin, NC, and had it made into a pendant for my grandmother; I started wearing it after she died many years ago)
*  black tourmaline -- anti-stress, anti-negativity
*  jet -- anti-stress, anti-negativity
*  amethyst -- pain relief
*  black spinel -- headache relief
*  blue apatite -- headache relief
*  Tibetan black quartz -- anti-migraine
*  green and blue tourmaline -- anti-migraine, healing for brain injury
*  fluorite -- brain issues

Just pretty:
*  blue moonstones (I have a small but very nice collection of blue moonstone jewelry -- I love it)
*  labrodorite
*  black opal triplet ring
*  aqua aura quartz point pendant
*  clear quartz
*  emerald
*  blue topaz
*  danburite

I carry a stone or stones (some are stones, some are crystals) with me if it is part of carrying out any Magic or Spell work or to work on any given intention. I don't carry or wear the same stones all the time.  It changes depending upon what I'm working on.  I also feel it's important since I"m a very visually based person, to visually take in the stone, to take it off and look at it, hold it, even draw or paint it.  I don't want to share about exactly which stones I carry or use, but I suggest looking into a good crystal book (My favorite is Robert Simmons & Naisha Ahsian, The BOok of Stones, Who they Are and What they Teach)  to find out more about specific ones.
