No matter what you’ve got going on, keeping your chakras aligned and activated can help you stay true to yourself and your purpose—and crystals are a great way to keep your energy flowing. But which crystals correspond with each chakra? The truth is, there’s no single “best” crystal for any given chakra—each of your energy centers can benefit from a number of different stones. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have favorites! Read on to find out which crystals to use for each of your chakras.
Crown Chakra: Moonstone for Divine Connection
The crown chakra is your body’s connection point to the divine, and moonstone is an excellent stone for opening and activating it. Moonstone is associated with spiritual connection and enlightenment—it can help clear the mind of negativity, enhance your intuition, and deepen your understanding of yourself and the world. For peaceful energy and emotional balance, I love wearing these moonstone earrings. You can also incorporate moonstone into your meditation practice or simply keep it around your space.
Third Eye Chakra: Amethyst for Intuition
Amethyst is an excellent choice for opening and activating the third eye chakra, which is the home of intuition, wisdom, and spiritual insight. Amethyst has a way of quieting the mind and enhancing clarity and focus. I wear one of my amethyst bracelets almost every day and am always amazed at its ability to help me feel balanced. It’s also great to keep around for anxiety relief, whether in your car, office, or bedroom.
Throat Chakra: Aquamarine for Communication
The throat chakra is your body’s communication center. Aquamarine is a powerful crystal for activation of the throat chakra, helping you enhance your ability to articulate your thoughts and emotions clearly and effectively. Aquamarine, especially when worn at the neck, can help promote truthfulness and authenticity. I like to wear an aquamarine necklace in situations that require clear communication—they’re just as powerful in business meetings as therapy appointments, and can be especially helpful in situations that require public speaking.
Heart Chakra: Rose Quartz for Love
Your heart chakra is your body’s spiritual center of love, compassion, and emotional balance. Rose quartz is helpful for opening your heart chakra and promoting self-love and love for others. It can also promote more meaningful relationships by enhancing your sense of empathy and helping you release negative emotions like resentment and anger. I designed this rose quartz necklace with self-love in mind, but I soon began incorporating it into a ton of other designs—car charms, gemstone hangers, suncatchers. No matter where you keep this gorgeous stone, you’re bound to connect a little more closely with yourself and others.
Solar Plexus Chakra: Citrine for Determination
Citrine is a powerful crystal for opening and activating the solar plexus chakra, which is the seat of personal power, confidence, and determination. With citrine, you’ll tap into greater depths of willpower, motivation, self-esteem, and purpose. Citrine is also associated with abundance and success, making it an excellent crystal for manifestation and goal-setting. I incorporated citrine into this gorgeous chakra bracelet along with other powerful solar plexus crystals, like yellow jade and amazonite.
Sacral Chakra: Carnelian for Intimacy
Carnelian opens and activates the sacral chakra, which is associated with intimacy, passion, and creativity. As such, it can enhance sensuality and sexual energy, while promoting emotional balance and healthy relationships. Carnelian can also help channel creativity and self-expression, making it an excellent crystal for artists and other creatively-minded folks. I’m equally likely to wear one of my carnelian necklaces around my studio as I am on a date night with my husband!
Root Chakra: Tourmaline for Stability
Tourmaline is a root chakra crystal—perfect for stability, grounding, and physical health. This stunning, dramatic stone can help you feel safe and secure while releasing anxiety and stress. Tourmaline is also believed to enhance vitality and physical energy, making it an excellent crystal for athletes or anyone seeking to improve their physical performance. I created the I Am Shielded bracelet when I came across this gorgeous tourmalated quartz and experienced its stabilizing properties—this is a great addition to your stack! And of course, I had to use tourmaline in our best-selling chakra earrings.
