Top 10 Crystals for Women
1. Rose Quartz
The fair and lovely Rose Quartz, with its gentle pink essence, is a stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness, and healing, nourishment, and comfort. It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears, and resentments, and circulates a Divine loving energy throughout the entire aura. Reawakening the heart to its own innate love, it 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 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. It 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 in jewelry, or use 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, spray as an elixir, or burn 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.

9. Red Coral
At the beginning of the 1st millennium, there was a significant trade in Coral between the Mediterranean and India, where it was highly prized as a substance believed to be endowed with mysterious sacred properties. Among the Romans, branches of Coral were hung around children's necks to preserve them from danger from the outside, and the substance had many medicinal virtues attributed to it. The belief in Coral's potency as a charm continued throughout the Middle Ages and early in 20th century Italy it was worn as a protection from the evil eye and by women as a cure for infertility.
Modern practitioners report that Red Coral can promote harmony with the natural forces of the earth, and help one align with natural processes over which one has no control. It is also reported to aid on in understanding the need to resist constant pressure and actually thrive from it. It is also a talisman that helps builders, craftsmen, and artists grow in their profession. As a Builder crystal, Red Coral helps in development efforts, in learning new skills and knowledge, and in building new relationships.
Red Coral is associated with the area between the First (Base) and Second (Sacral) Chakras. It is used for spiritual healing of issues related to conflicts between emotions and one's basic instincts. Use this to focus the Universal Life Force on finding the strength to deal with the complexities of the modern world and bring balance to your life.

Red Coral can also be used by women who need balance in their life, especially between the head and the heart. It's very inspiring for businesswomen in the workplace as well.

Beginners Meditation Instructions
Here is a great meditation to start with once you receive your crystals and candles. If you're a member of the Crystal Inner Circle, check out the Crystal Meditation community and forum if you have any questions for me or any of our gurus!
- 1. Find a relaxing environment, free of clutter, and preferably dimly lit (or only lit by natural light).
- 2. 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).
- 3. 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. A pain in your back or legs falling asleep is not worth it and will likely break your concentration.
- 4. 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.
- 5. 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.
- 6. 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.
