Top 10 Crystals for Men
(listed in no particular order)
1. Red Jasper
Jaspers are one of the well-known crystals for men. They have been revered by ancient peoples and civilizations throughout the world as sacred and powerful stones of protection, for both the physical and spiritual realm. Historically, Red Jasper was known as a stone of vibrancy and endurance, a talisman of warriors, and a promoter of justice, protection, and life. It staunched the blood of wounds, stirred the pulse, and increased fertility.
Today, Red Jasper is still known as the Stone of Endurance, a gentle, but vital, stimulator of chi, or Life Force, bringing physical strength and energy, stamina, focus, and determination. Its steady frequency calms the emotional body creating lasting, stable energy for improving health or overcoming illness, setting goals, and following through to completion.
Red Jasper is a stone of courage and strength. It is great for men who need an added boost of energy and drive without the side effect of possible aggression. It offers a gentle yet stimulating masculine energy. Red Jasper also works well as a personal talisman to meet and even exceed your goals.
2. Black Onyx
Black Onyx is a most ancient stone, known and utilized by even the earliest civilizations for its powerful energy and somber beauty. Over the centuries, metaphysical practitioners have come to appreciate the contradictory powers of Onyx and have learned to harness even its negative traits to achieve positive results. It integrates dualities within the Self and is perhaps the best talisman of Strength and Self-mastery on the planet.
Onyx grounds and stabilizes the emotional body, bringing strength in difficult or confusing circumstances and during times of tremendous mental or physical stress. It calms nervousness, quells anxiety and fear, soothes tempers, and restores rational thinking and self-control. It emanates the energy of self-mastery, imparting self-confidence, focus, ease in one’s surroundings, and the gift of wise decision-making.
Onyx teaches the appropriate use of power and focusing one’s energy and will into a positive force. While anyone can benefit from Onyx’s many uses, men will find it particularly helpful. It is a wonderful talisman for stress relief, inner strength, and mental focus. Keep one nearby to deflect negative energies.
Garnet is found the world over. Its strong curative powers and protective energies have made it invaluable. Garnet is also known for its utilization of creative energy. It grounds spirit forces within the body and helps in the ability to work lovingly on the physical plane. Yet Garnet is a sensual stone. It represents primordial fire, the creation of the world out of chaos, purification, and love. It is a stone of strong, intense feelings.
Garnet can act as a strong help to balance the energy system, stimulate desires and uplift your attitude. As a balancer stone, Garnet can prevent fears of insecurity and even money losses. They’re lucky crystals for men: lucky for love, success, and for goals. Use Garnet to increase your positivity and popularity, thus enhancing your personal self-esteem. As an energy stone, it can encourage success in business and business relationships.
Garnet sharpens your perceptions of yourself and other people. It dissolves ingrained behavior patterns that are no longer serving you and helps you let go of obsolete ideas. This can be especially beneficial for men who tend to be stubborn and find it hard to let go of old ideas or patterns.
Pyrite is a stone of hidden fire, one that can be sparked to life by striking it against metal or stone. An Earth element, it also resonates with Fire energy, symbolizing the warmth and lasting presence of the sun and the ability to generate wealth by one’s own power. It is masculine in nature, a stone of action, vitality, and will, and taps into one’s abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion.
A piece of Pyrite in the home or workplace energizes the area around it and imparts an immediate increase in vitality. It overcomes intellectual fatigue due to overwork and tiredness of the nervous system by stimulating blood flow to the brain, increasing mental clarity, focus, and recall. Pyrite is also a protective, shielding stone and is excellent to wear or carry as an amulet to deflect harm and danger. It is especially helpful when one is away from home or performing hazardous work.
Pyrite’s energy is empowering to the spirit, encouraging one to overcome fears and take action. It increases one’s will to accomplish whatever tasks one sets out to do, and can be used to bring one out of one’s shell, becoming more dynamic and confident. Pyrite enhances the protective and assertive male energies in men (and women). For men, it instills a feeling of confidence in one’s masculinity and supports the enthusiastic expression of male eroticism.
Called the Stone of Courage and the Stone of Truth, Amazonite empowers one to search the self and discover one’s own truths and integrity, and move beyond fear of judgment or confrontation with others to live in alignment with those beliefs and values. It provides the freedom to express one’s thoughts and feelings, and to set strong and clear boundaries, both internally as self-discipline, and externally on what one is willing to experience or in defining personal space.
Amazonite assists in communicating one’s true thoughts and feelings without over-emotionalism. It also enables one to see a problem from another’s point of view in order to affect peace or to see both sides of an issue objectively to resolve one’s own inner conflicts. As a support stone, Amazonite aids in overcoming loneliness and has been credited with making married life happier. It is also useful in treating sexual disorders, such as lack of desire, impotence, vaginitis, sexual obsession, and priapism.
Amazonite is one of the best crystals for men. It increases self-esteem and reduces tendencies to self-neglect. It enhances the ability to communicate more effectively by identifying how one’s words have created the current reality, and how to change one’s vocabulary to reflect a higher, more aligned reality. Amazonite also empowers one to set appropriate boundaries, inwardly in self-discipline, and with others in establishing healthy relationships. It can be useful for men looking to improve their current relationship or establish a new, healthy one.
6. Green Tourmaline
Green Tourmaline, also known as Verdelite, is perhaps Nature’s best healing crystal for the physical heart, channeling its electrical energies into the center of one’s being and creating a flow of wholesome energy to all parts of the body and self. It is the masculine, or yang counterpart to the feminine heart energies of Pink Tourmaline, and enhances courage and strength, stamina, and vitality. Its spiritual vibrations harmonize with the energies of the Earth as it opens the Heart Chakra and stimulates a strong resonance with Divine Love.
Green Tourmaline attracts luck, success, abundance, and prosperity. It inspires creativity and may be used to project, create and manifest one’s goals. It might also increase one’s opportunities to earn a second income by turning an interest or hobby into a business. As a stone of energy and stamina, Green Tourmaline is excellent for sports persons and athletes, and anyone in occupations where rigorous activity is required.
Green Tourmaline brings invigorating growth and expansion to the emotional body, allowing one to be more expressive and less fearful of change. It inspires compassion, tenderness, patience, and nurtures a sense of belonging. It can help men who have a hard time communicating their feelings learn how to open up and express their needs.
Malachite is a Stone of Transformation, assisting one in changing situations and providing for spiritual growth. It heals on physical and emotional levels, drawing out impurities and stimulating the Life Force throughout the aura and body. Malachite helps battle depression and anxiety, gives resistance to emotional blackmail, and heals emotional abuse, especially when suffered in childhood. It also encourages healthy relationships based on love and not need.
Malachite encourages change and emotional risk-taking. It shows what is blocking your spiritual growth, draws out deep feelings and psychosomatic causes, then allows you to break unwanted ties and outworn patterns. This stone encourages the expression of feelings, alleviates shyness, and teaches the responsibility for one’s own thoughts and actions. It supports friendships and empathy for other people.
Malachite is a wonderful personal stone for men, especially those who are highly motivated. It can be a powerful ally for those waiting for their reality to change. It reminds us we have come here to co-create with the Universe and helps in identifying the steps necessary to bring dreams, visions, and wishes into physical reality.
8. Lapis Lazuli
Lapis Lazuli is one of the most sought-after stones in use since man’s history began. Its deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honor, gods and power, spirit and vision. It is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth. It is a powerful crystal for activating the higher mind and enhancing intellectual ability. Lapis stimulates the desire for knowledge, truth, and understanding, and aids the process of learning. It is excellent for enhancing memory.
Lapis encourages dignity in friendship and social ability. It encourages the qualities of honesty, compassion, and uprightness when dealing with others. It provides an awareness of one’s motivations and beliefs and gives a clearer perspective of one’s whole life. This crystal reveals not only one’s limitations, but the opportunities for growth and to utilize one’s gifts and abilities.
Lapis is one of the most popular crystals for men. It quickly releases stress, allowing for peace and serenity. It works well for men who find themselves needing to be more compassionate and honest. This crystal also works well for men in the pursuit of any knowledge such as themselves, academic, spiritual, or otherwise. Placed over the third eye, Lapis expands awareness and conscious attunement to the intuitive self, stimulating enlightenment and enhancing dream work. It permits spiritual journeying and tapping into personal and spiritual power.
Jade is said to bless whatever it touches, serving mankind across the globe for nearly 6,000 years. It is most valued for its metaphysical properties. It is the ultimate “Dream Stone,” revered in ancient cultures, as well as today, to access the spiritual world, gain insight into ritualistic knowledge, encourage creativity, and dream-solve. Jade is cherished as a protective talisman, assuring long life and peaceful death, and is considered a powerful healing stone.
When it comes to crystals for men, historically, Jade has been at the top. It is the stone of calm in the midst of the storm. Its action balances nerves and soothes cardiac rhythm. A piece of Jade kept in a pocket or on a pendant to stroke from time to time recharges energy, and traditionally guards against illness. It is also a crystal of love. It is supportive of new love and increases trustworthiness and fidelity, also inspiring love later in life. Jade pendants and necklaces protect against deception and authoritative abuse for financial or sexual gain. It is also thought to treat reproductive disorders, especially in men.
Jade relinquishes self-imposed limitations and assists in cherishing one’s ideals and desires, facilitating the ambition and building of those thoughts into physical reality. Jade provides confidence and self-assuredness, self-reliance, and self-sufficiency. While it provides many physical benefits for men, its emotional ones shouldn’t be overlooked. It is a wonderful healing stone in all aspects and assists men in becoming more balanced, successful, and confident.
10. Tiger's Eye
Tiger’s Eye is a most ancient talisman, mysterious and powerful, revered and feared – an “all-seeing all-knowing eye,” thought to grant a wearer the ability to observe everything, even through closed doors. Linked to the magical tiger, the king of beasts in Eastern mythology, Tiger’s Eye portrayed courage, integrity, and the right use of power. Roman soldiers carried it to deflect weapons and to be brave in battle. It has been highly regarded throughout history as a stone of prosperity and good fortune, protecting one’s resources and reflecting back malice or threats from others.
Keep Tiger’s Eye as a stone of luck and good fortune to attract a steady flow of money to the home. It is ideal for entrepreneurs and those setting out in business for the first time; also for those building up skills and a knowledge base for major career changes in the future. Wear or carry Tiger’s Eye for increasing insight and perception in unfamiliar places or circumstances, and for protection from the negative intentions of others. Tiger’s Eye sharpens the senses, helping one pay attention to details and prepare for positive action. Use for quick thinking, sizing up someone’s character, and realizing the consequences of one’s own actions.
Tiger’s Eye is one of the only crystals for men that is a blood fortifier; increasing vitality and strength and restoring balance to the body on all levels. It is thought to boost the endocrine system, bringing one’s hormones and biochemistry back to level and, placed on the reproductive organs, may stimulate fertility and resolve issues arising from past experiences. Tiger’s Eye is highly beneficial for resolving dilemmas and internal battles, especially those caused by jealousy, willfulness, and pride. It teaches integrity, bringing an awareness of one’s needs, as opposed to mere “wants,” as well as understanding the needs of others.
Beginners Meditation for Men
Here is a great meditation to start with once you receive your crystal(s). If you're a member of the Crystal Inner Circle, check out the Crystal Healing community and forum if you have any questions regarding crystals or meditation in general.
- Find a relaxing environment, free of clutter, and preferably dimly lit (or only lit by natural light).
- Once you have found an ideal location, light your candle(s). You can also burn any incense or sage stick and add any essential oils you'd like at this time (optional).
- Find a place to take a seat, hold the crystal(s) in your hands (or place it over the appropriate chakra), and begin. While many prefer to sit on the floor with crossed legs, your comfort is what is most important. You can sit in your favorite chair or any way you find comfortable. Pain in your back or legs falling asleep is not worth it and will likely break your concentration.
- Once you have found a comfortable place to sit and the candle is burning, it is time to close your eyes and relax. If music or guided meditations help you get there, by all means, use what you need. Here is a link to a specific guided meditation I enjoy.
- Breathe in through your nose, inhaling the sweet scent of fresh air and your candle, and then out through your mouth. You don’t have to think much during this time. Clear your mind and let the thoughts and images come to you.
- Whatever you come across during your meditation session, write it down! Even if it is just brief flashes of images or things that seem trivial, write down everything you can remember. This will give you something to bounce off of later and you’d be surprised how quickly you start noticing a story weaving together.
