The Chakras are full of energy, Reiki Chakra Energy… exists in all 7 Chakras which form a conduit for energy to travel from the Root chakra to the Crown and from the Crown back to the Root.

Choosing crystals is a personal thing! When I choose crystals, I will work with I hold them in my right hand. As a conduit for Reiki energy, I receive with my right hand and give with my left. Some practitioners will be the opposite and some will receive and give energy with either hand. A crystal I can work with causes tingling in my right hand, where ever I place it.
But it is then up to me to take it home and clear it of any other energies it may have gathered from people who handled it in the shop or from other crystals it was next to.
I do this in conjunction with my guides. Archangel Michael is protecting the clearing season. The crystal is held between my hands which are in Gassho. I work with my Reiki guides until they tell me the crystal is clear. As an example, I purchased some small unpolished amethyst crystals. I held each against my third eye, and closed my eyes and cleared my mind.
In my third eye appeared TV Snow. Old TVs would display this “snow” when they had problems displaying pictures. Except in my mind all that would be white in the snow was violet, as I tried different crystals in this way, many would produce no effect, I bought only those that created this violet effect.
Crystals will help to focus Reiki energy into and clear the chakras of any blockages. You can use all the crystals at the same time, placing each over the chakra, or, only the crystals associated with the Chakras you are guided to.
If you are a Reiki Practitioner, and you are using the crystals with patients, clear the crystals after each session so there is no spiritual carry over from one patient to the next. If a patient brings their own crystals to use, ensure they understand what clearing the crystals is and check how they are preforming the ritual.
