You are pure energy and this energy is condensed and spread throughout the body. A chakra is simply an energy hub in your body. The pathways that send chi or ki energy throughout the body are called meridians. The third eye, like every chakra, responds greatly to crystals and gemstones.
Your third eye is responsible for intuition, visions, premonitions, dreams, spirituality, and other so-called sixth sense abilities. Placing crystals on your forehead while you meditate or, wearing them as jewelry, enhances your spiritual senses by opening up your third eye chakra.
As with most things in life, different tools work differently for each person. This list is an example of my personal favorites. There are many crystals for the third eye and I suggest that you experiment with any that you are attracted to.
For a more detailed approach to using crystals to open up the third eye chakra check out the article, How to Use Crystals & Gemstones for Third Eye Chakra Opening.
