Finding Appreciation with Crystals

Sometimes when things get down or times get tough, we can have trouble appreciating the world the same way we used to. This can be through not appreciating the beauty in the world we once saw or even down to not appreciating your friends or partner as we should. As people when we get comfortable we tend to take things for granted.

This can cause stress on our relationships or inner turmoil that can be difficult to handle. If you are finding yourself losing appreciation for the things around you or if you’d like to gain more appreciation yourself, we believe crystals can help.

Indigo Crystals for Appreciation

Crystals in any hue of Indigo can be helpful in your quest for appreciation. However, we find that light indigo is the best choice. When indigo is lightened and diffused in crystals such as those of sodalite or some fluorite, then indigo becomes the ray of connection, having similar power to that of an amethyst colored crystal. The difference in uses is a matter of degree and intent. While amethyst connects the old to the new, the light indigo connects us to the natural world and helps us understand that connection. To maintain a natural connection to life, to be naturally aware of your place, and to keep your soul and mind connected, use a pale indigo crystal.

Indigo crystals bring you wisdom, truth, dignity, and spiritual mastery.

Indigo is the color of experience, maturity, and a long life. Specific color rays within indigo can help you bring appreciation back into your life. Indigo is a soft color ray that is made for introspection, and crystals of this color can help you immensely in your quest for wisdom. Indigo colored stones combine the intuition of the violet ray with the trust of the pure blue ray. They can help you find your way to a higher plane of consciousness. The indigo crystals are beautiful and powerful stones that will bring you reflexive awareness and comprehension of complex relationships.



Iolite Rough Crystal (Small)-156727The strong indigo hues in Iolite make it the perfect crystal for finding and generating appreciation. Iolite is often used by those embarking on a shamanic journey. It is also a powerful aid to helping you remove unwanted parts of your life and restoring balance and happiness.

It is a stone of virtue and excellent for keeping your energy levels high. Iolites perfect crystals for focusing and amplifying the Universal Life Force and your energy to accomplish your quests. Everyone gets tired and discouraged from time to time. Iolites are a good antidote to allow you to keep your energy level up and your efforts focused.

Iolite restores a sense of perspective to those who feel they are jinxed, and inspires anyone with a chaotic life to start to bring order in small practical ways.


Sodalite Heart-135323Sodalite, which is mostly found in blue shades, is also found in a beautiful indigo. When it is enhanced with the color of indigo, you’ll find it helps balance and brings focus to the task of appreciation. Sodalite is a stone of the intellect. It is used to enhance clarity of thought, concentration, and focus.

It enhances understanding of difficult concepts. It is too easy in life to see the glass half empty, the child as a poor student, or the spouse as a slob. Filters, like Sodalite, help us see the glass half full, the child as a loving, well-meaning young lady, and the spouse as an excellent provider, devoted to his family. These are all important aspects if you need to gain appreciation for those in your life.

Indigo Sodalite is associated with the Throat Chakra. The throat chakra is the voice of the body. It is a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakra to be expressed.

What Other Crystal Authors Recommend

Michael Gienger recommends Malachite which is a powerful amulet of protection from physical harm.

"Malachite encourages an appreciation of aesthetics, sensuality and beauty, friendship and justice. It helps us imagine ourselves in the position of others and to empathize with them."



When you find a lack of appreciation in your life, life itself can start to seem unfulfilling. Appreciation of various things is necessary to keep harmony in our life. Whether we feel underappreciated or others feel we underappreciate them, we feel that crystals from the indigo hue can help bring your love of others and life back. Without appreciation of things fundamental in our life, we can feel tired, run down, or restless.

If you need to find appreciation again, we recommend using light indigo crystals such as Iolite and Sodalite. You can also try crystals other authors have suggested such as Malachite.
