1. Rose Quartz
The fair and lovely Rose Quartz is one of the quintessential crystals for women. With its gentle pink essence, it is a stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness, healing, nourishment, and comfort. It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears, and resentments, and circulates Divine loving energy throughout the entire aura.
Reawakening the heart to its own innate love, provides a deep sense of personal fulfillment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others. Rose Quartz is also a stone for those unable to experience the joy of living because of never having had love given to them, possibly missing the love and nurturing as a child that is vital for the development of security and a positive self-image.
Rose Quartz is the healer for these internal wounds, erasing the primal imprints and reprogramming the heart to accept the infinite source of love that comes from within the self. Only after learning to give love to the self is it possible to truly love others.
Rose Quartz is such a healing and loving stone for women, it's hard to pinpoint just one attribute to highlight. This gentle yet powerful crystal helps us ease past pain and heartbreak while tenderly teaching us how to love ourselves. It encourages the nurturing of our own hearts and souls as well. This crystal just emanates pure love and can help you heal on many levels.
Amber is one of the world’s oldest and most coveted treasures, a "Gold of the Sea" intrinsically formed by light and life, preserved by time and washed up on the shores for humanity, a talisman of beauty, protection, and renewal. It has been portrayed as drops of the sun, tears of the gods, hardened honey, and sunlight solidified and is as desired today as it was in the most ancient cultures.
Amber is one of the oldest crystals for women. It is a gentle stone that works especially well for hot-tempered women. It is an exceptional rubbing stone for discharging negative moods, relieving anxiety, or deflecting energy from others. Amber warms the more it is touched and generates a positive, uplifting current of energy.
It is recommended to carry one in your pocket or purse, wear it in jewelry, or use it in rosary or prayer beads. You can also use Amber to purify any environment before use or to remove negative energy. This can be done by placing pieces of Amber around the space, spraying as an elixir, or burning as incense. It also provides an effective screen after the area has been cleansed.
Amber heals and supports the emotional body by drawing off the negative energies that steal one’s optimism and drive for life and replaces them with an empowering frequency conducive to positive change. It is ideal for those battling suicidal tendencies, addictions, or who struggle with depression, anxiety, or seasonal affective disorder to see light at the end of the tunnel. It can be a very uplifting and supportive stone for all women.
Natural 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. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages the fullness of life, fresh beginnings, and new pursuits.
Citrine is an excellent crystal for interpersonal relationships and one of the best crystals for women. It smooths family or group problems and promotes solutions and cohesiveness. It also helps in understanding and dealing with absorbed impressions from those around us. Carrying a Citrine attracts love and happiness, and guards against those who would break your heart. It is also an effective shield against spite and jealousy.
Citrine opens the higher mind to accept joy in one's life, releasing anger and negative feelings, deep-seated fears, and destructive tendencies. An excellent crystal for overcoming depression, Citrine reduces the sensitivity to criticism and inspires creativity and self-expression. It raises self-esteem, and by letting go of the past, allows one to move forward optimistically, enjoying new experiences and explorations.
It can assist women physically with their menstrual cycle and menopause as well as depression and self-esteem issues. Another benefit is the energy boost that it often brings. It's definitely a wonderful addition to have for any woman. As a side note, in ancient lore, Citrine was reputed to make men handsome and intelligent and sterile women fertile and happy.
Garnet is known as a Stone of Tangible Truth. It assists in manifesting a realistic version of the physical world. Its energy helps alleviate worry, panic, fear, and assists in maintaining a calm connection to the present. It allows one to perceive the absolute support of the Universe. Its intellectual properties also make it useful to those exploring the fields of astronomy, astrology, and mathematics.
It is an excellent crystal for fertility, sexual potency, and libido. It supports recuperation after injury, as well as the health of the ovaries and testes. Garnet may help with pain, especially during childbirth. Emotionally, Garnet cultivates a sense of security, safety, and abundance. It is associated with the First Chakra and has the healing energy to help arouse the kundalini and keep those energies grounded. This is a stone of physical love and relationships, and a spiritual stone of psychic protection. It increases willpower and resistance to all things negative.
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 stones: lucky for love, success, and 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. It is a wonderful executive gem, especially for women.

Also, businesswomen can also benefit from keeping this stone nearby in the workplace. It is even said to discourage sexism in the workplace.
Amethyst is a remarkable stone of spirituality and contentment, known for its metaphysical abilities to still the mind and inspire an enhanced meditative state. Its inherent high frequency purifies the aura of any negative energy or attachments, and creates a protective shield of Light around the body, allowing one to remain clear and centered while opening to spiritual direction.
Amethyst stimulates the Third Eye, Crown, and Etheric Chakras enhancing cognitive perception as well as accelerating the development of intuitive and psychic ability. It initiates wisdom and greater understanding and is a stone of comfort for those grieving the loss of a loved one.
Amethyst, one of those most well-known crystals for women, is especially supportive of the emotional body, bringing those who are overworked, overstressed, or overwhelmed back to the center. It eases the mental anxieties that lead to physical tension and headaches and is a great crystal to calm those who tend to be hot-headed and easily angered.
Amethyst is also one of the best crystals for meditation. To relax the system and increase awareness, hold single Amethyst crystals or small clusters in the left hand (termination towards the arm) during meditation to draw Amethyst energy into the body.
Because Amethyst initiates wisdom and greater understanding, it is a comforting crystal for those grieving the loss of a loved one. Its presence communicates that there is no death, only transitioning and changing of forms. It encourages the release of sorrow and rejoicing in a loved one’s spirit being freed from the confinement of the physical body.
Amethyst increases creativity, intuition, and facilitates a deeper connection with the self. It can be perfect for women who feel overstressed, angry, lost, or just plain worn out.
Known as the “Supreme Nurturer,” Jasper is a stone of grounding and stability, providing comfort and security, strength and healing. Each stone is a masterpiece of the Creator, bold and primitive in style, solid and earthy in form, with a warm, harmonious energy that resonates with the primal self. Its presence balances the aura to a level of wholeness and peace and acts as a reminder that one is not here on the physical plane simply for oneself, but to bring joy and substance to others.
Wear or carry Jasper to alleviate stress and induce tranquility. Its cleansing effect eliminates negative energy and stabilizes the aura. It makes an ideal worry or rubbing stone for soothing the nerves and increasing one’s focus, and is a wonderful stone for banishing nightmares or harmful thoughts. Jasper makes an excellent diet stone as well, lending emotional support and strength in self-discipline, as well as boosting physical energy levels. Its slow, steady vibration helps avoid extremes and encourages perseverance. It is also useful for long periods of fasting.
Physically, Jasper is believed to increase fertility and is conducive to happy pregnancies. It is a powerful aphrodisiac and a regenerator of sperm, especially when it is combined with Garnet or Topaz. Emotionally, Jasper provides a strengthening energy for the emotional body, easing stress and producing calm stability. For those sensitive to its vibration, it creates a special aura, a pleasant sensation as it irradiates throughout the body. It invites feelings of compassion and patience, humility, and even generosity. It can be helpful to women who are pregnant or trying to conceive. If you're having trouble grounding yourself, feeling out of sorts, or need some balance and tranquility, meditation with Jasper is ideal.
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.
One of the strongest crystals for women is Onyx. Draw on Onyx for physical strength after a long illness, prolonged work project, demanding exercise or weight loss program, or any situation that depletes one’s resources. It aids the retention of energies rather than allowing them to dissipate, enabling one to build up vigor and vitality, stamina, and focus. Onyx boosts self-confidence and assertion while bringing reason to passion, and is an excellent stone to carry into conflict situations where a cool head is needed.
You can wear or carry Onyx as a personal amulet of protection to keep your senses keen and instincts sharp, whether traversing a desolate street at night, fighting fears associated with bullying or terrorism, or as a protective shield during psychic endeavors. Place an Onyx in the workplace to deflect others’ negative thoughts or criticism, and for effective defense against those who are manipulative or argumentative. Rest an Onyx on a nightstand with the intent of protection against nightmares and fears associated with the dark.
In ancient lore, Onyx was placed on the stomach of women in labor to reduce pain. In modern times, women can benefit from Onyx from its high energy and ability to increase stamina. It is one of the best crystals for women for professional women or women looking to lose weight and get healthier. It brings excellent discipline.
Like waters deep and ancient, Amazonite beckons in captivating shades of turquoise-green, promising to soothe the spirit and calm the soul. Its energy is as powerful as the river for which it is named and as bold as the legendary women warriors with whom it is connected, yet it tempers aggression, tames the irrational, and stills the disquiet. Amazonite provides harmony and balance. It is particularly rejuvenating to the Heart and Throat Chakras, enhancing loving communication on all levels. It balances one’s masculine/feminine energies as well as many aspects of the personality.
Amazonite increases self-esteem, especially in women, 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. It also empowers one to set appropriate boundaries, inwardly in self-discipline, and with others in establishing healthy relationships. As a support stone, Amazonite aids in overcoming loneliness and has been credited with making married life happier.
Amazonite is a wonderful healer for the emotional body. It soothes trauma and calms the mind, alleviates worry and fear, and directs anger and irritability into more positive action. It regulates the aggressive aspects of one’s personality and urges the mind to seek emotional balance. This is an ideal crystal for women in many ways. Its ability to soothe and balance the emotional body is like no other. It also raises our self-esteem and assists us in more effectively expressing our needs to others.
Kunzite is a beautiful crystal, pure in energy and joyful in nature. In palest pink to light violet hues, it is a Stone of Emotion, opening and connecting the heart to the mind and stimulating a healing communion between the two. Kunzite encourages one to release walls built around the heart for protection and to be receptive to the experience of unconditional and abundant love.
Kunzite is often called the Woman’s Stone. It is particularly supportive for a young or first-time mother and for all single mothers and assists human, as well as animal mothers who may have a hard time caring for their young. It is a good stone for sleepless babies and over-active children and is an excellent gift for girls entering puberty to help them love their changing bodies.
Kunzite is a powerful healer of the emotional body, particularly for those who have closed themselves off from life, or from others, to protect themselves emotionally. Its high vibrational energy encourages letting go of fears and sorrows that hold the heart to the past or the anxiety of the future and inspires being present in the perfection of the moment. It allows for free expression of feelings, healing the mind and heart, and being receptive to the gifts and opportunities life has to offer.
Kunzite opens the heart to the energies of love – love of self, of others, for humanity, plants, animals, the earth, and all it contains. By embracing all other types of love, one is open to receiving Divine Love and to recognizing the essence of the Divine in us. This receptivity allows the love and gifts of the Divine to flow through one’s heart and life in infinite abundance.
Moonstone carries the energy of the new moon at the height of its power, stimulating psychic perception, vision, and dream work. It can magnify one’s emotions, activate the kundalini energy in women and emotional balance in men, and is supportive in children to drive away nightmares or insomnia.
Moonstone bestows a depth of feeling, a gentleness within the self that brings happiness to the environment in which it resides. Associated with the feminine, it enhances the intuitive side of the mind. To women, Moonstone reveals their feminine power and abilities of clairvoyance and gives rise to the kundalini energy. Moonstone helps men become more in-tune with the feminine aspects of their nature, and stimulates the right side of the brain, encouraging nonlinear thinking and emotional balance.
Moonstone has long been known for its calming, soothing qualities on the emotional body. Its energy is balancing and healing, assisting in the mastery of emotions by bringing them under the control of Higher Will, rather than expressing or repressing them. It also helps identify emotional patterns that are stored in the subconscious and can serve as a guardian to contain explosive passions and to stimulate confidence and composure. Moonstones can be placed at the center of the chin (the Moon Center) to create this balance.
Beginners Meditation for Women
Here is a great meditation to start with once you receive your crystal(s). We also recommend getting one of our crystal energy candles but any candle you have can work for this meditation. 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 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.
