Crystals for the Lunar Eclipse

A Full Moon matches up with a historic lunar eclipse in the early morning hours of Friday, November 19th. This Full Moon, known as the Beaver Moon, is the second to last of 2021 (the final Full Moon is the Cold Moon on December 18th). This partial lunar eclipse will be the longest one in over 580 years. In total, it will last just over 6 hours, with the Moon being in the darkest part of Earth's shadow for around 3 1/2 hours. At Crystal Vaults, we are prepared to take advantage of this special cosmic event by preparing crystals for the lunar eclipse.

The Full Moons throughout the year have names associated with them. The upcoming Full Moon during the lunar eclipse is called the Beaver Moon. This name comes from the fact that beavers become more active during this time as they start to prepare for winter. The spiritual meaning of this Full Moon isn't too far off from that either. The Beaver Moon signifies a time we are seeking out things that make us feel safe, warm, and secure. We may start to notice the things we lack, whether emotionally or materially, in order to be prepared for the cold nights ahead.

The lunar eclipse appearing during the Beaver Moon carries extra significance with it. While normally we would do crystal work to harness the energy of the Full Moon, during an eclipse we sit back and reflect. We are grounded. We focus on our breathing and may even meditate during the eclipse to center ourselves. This is due to the fact that lunar eclipses generally signify a big change, emotional upheaval, or swift, sudden endings. Though it might sound scary, as change can be, these are usually positive occurrences.

Choosing crystals for the lunar eclipse involves locating grounding crystals and/or crystals that can represent both light and darkness. Finding a crystal that is grounding and also a deep shade of red, almost matching the color of the lunar eclipse, is a perfect choice. This can be Red Jasper, Red Quartz, and more. We prefer to use Vanadinite.

Crystals for the lunar eclipse that represent light and darkness can be any black crystal or yellow crystal. We like to use Black Obsidian for the black crystal and Citrine for the yellow crystal.

Crystals for the Lunar Eclipse

In case you're not ready for the Beaver Moon Eclipse, we've got you covered with exclusive, attuned crystals for the lunar eclipse. We are attuning Vanadinite clusters, Black Obsidian Hearts, and Congo Citrine crystals. The attuning ceremony is performed by a Certified Crystal Master. The crystals are cleansed, blessed, and then placed out under the light of the Full Moon and allowed to go through the process of the lunar eclipse in real-time. You can read more about each of the crystals for the lunar eclipse below.


Vanadinite is often used to aid in getting rid of bad habits. It's also used in efforts to overcome minor mental and physical ailments. It is a healing crystal for the area of the aura between the First and Second Chakra. This is an area that is worth a bit of time to keep in balance as it really sets the stage for all energy flow.

Vanadinite is a Seeker Buffer Crystal. Seeker Buffer crystals are used when one seeks to re-center themselves. They offer a place of repose and a place of balance. They are known for their power to augment your personal strength, physical energy, and vitality to deal with the demands of the busy world.

Vanadinite is unique in the fact that it offers a grounding, centering energy while still promoting energy, vitality, and strength. It is a wonderful crystal to help you weather any type of storm while staying put together and true to yourself. Not only are Vanadinite perfect in the fact that they match the shade of the eclipsed Moon, but they also give us the healing energy needed to power through difficult times. It is really a warm and supportive stone. A great addition for the coming winter.

Black Obsidian and Citrine

Black Obsidian is a teacher stone and could be deemed the "Warrior of Truth." It is the most powerful of the Obsidians and does not cater to the ego; rather it exposes darkened areas of the subconscious to force one to face one’s true self. It assists in examining unresolved issues and harmful attitudes inhibiting one’s personal and spiritual growth.

Black Obsidian is the perfect stone to embody the darkness that comes when the Full Moon's light is blocked by Earth's shadow. It shows us the darkness with just enough light needed to fix what needs to be taken care of. It rushes negative emotions and difficult truths to the surface to be experienced and released. This crystal should be used in tandem with the Citrine crystal below.

Citrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Carrying the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing, and life-giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action. Citrine does not hold or accumulate negative energy. Rather, it transmutes, dissipates, and grounds it, making it extremely protective for the environment. It works out problems on both the physical and subtle levels; transforming negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones.

Citrine is the ideal crystal to represent the light that begins to peek back through as the lunar eclipse passes by. Without darkness, there can't be light. This crystal works best when combined with the Black Obsidian above.

These two crystals together will help you weather any storm, make it through any changes, or sudden upheavals. They will help you rid yourself and your environment of negative energy while also transforming it into positive energy and feelings.
