Crystal rollers might just be the chicest way to boost your skin. Not only do they make the most beautiful vanity décor—when they’re not chilling in the freezer, of course—but they also come with plenty of benefits for your face. But with so many different types available, how do you even know which one to choose?

Despite using different crystals, jade, rose quartz, and amethyst rollers all seem like they do the same thing—and one expert says that’s generally pretty true. “In all honesty, the physical impact is very similar. It’s a hard, smooth surface that enables the user to roll and massage over the surface of the skin with a density that won’t crack too easily under heat,” says Abigail James, international facialist and skin-care expert. Because of their similarities in structure, you’ll notice beloved benefits from all of them, like de-puffing, increased blood circulation, improved skin elasticity, and lymphatic drainage.

One major difference among rollers variety, though? Their spiritual healing properties. Since your skin can show improvements with each of the three options, your choice really comes down to choosing which crystal you want to introduce into your skincare routine. Here’s what you should know about each.

1. Jade rollers

At this point, ultra-popular jade rollers are popping up just about everywhere. And there’s a lot of meaning behind that stunning green stone. “Jade is a happy stone that’s frequently used in the beauty industry globally, as well as in Chinese medicine,” James says. “It’s praised for emotional healing and eliminating negativity. It’s also known as a lucky stone, making it great for calming and balancing.”

2. Rose quartz rollers

There’s no better way to give your skin some literal love than by using a rose quartz roller. “Rose quartz is the love stone. It’s nourishing and has loving energy, and it also helps calm anger,” James says. “It’s great for balance and is often used to strengthen the blood circulation.”

3. Amethyst rollers

The cool new kid on block is the amethyst roller, which a long list of celebrities—including Jessica Alba and the Kardashians—are currently raving over. “The crystal is used to help heal physical ailments and the nervous system, provide hormonal balance, help with insomnia and stress, calm inflammation, and bring a sense of serenity,” James says.
