Ah, love. The songs and the stories tell us it’s what life is all about. But attracting it, and holding onto it, can be quite the challenge.
Love can mean many things to many different people, but whether you’re looking to love yourself, deepen the feelings in an already-existing relationship, heal a broken heart or create space for a new romantic love, I’ve pulled together some recommendations for the best crystals for love to aid you on your journey.
The Best Crystals For Finding Love
I have to start with rose quartz – the gemstone most closely associated with the heart.
Rose quartz emanates gentle, feminine energies and has been used to resonate with the heart chakra for centuries. It helps the wearer to heal from past hurts and opens the heart to unconditional love making it one of the best crystals for finding love.
As well as helping to attract new love or strengthening an existing love, rose quartz is one of the most powerful crystals for self love.
How To Use Rose Quartz
Wear rose quartz as a piece of jewellery to maintain skin contact or keep it in your pocket by day.
At night, it works well when placed near the bed or under your pillow – it can help you achieve a peaceful sleep while also working to achieve your desires.
You can also hold it over your heart chakra, close your eyes and focus on your desired outcome.
Alternatively, if you are looking to manifest love, hold rose quartz in your hands while you meditate and focus on what you are trying to manifest.
Rose quartz really is one of the strongest crystals for love that you can use – whatever love means to you. If you’ve never worked with crystals before, I would recommend using this lovely stone as your starting point.
Malachite isn’t often one of the first love crystals that comes to mind, but it holds a lot of power for the heart chakra thanks to its green hues.
The Ying to rose quartz’s Yang, Malachite embodies tough love and no-nonsense. It can be used to break unhealthy patterns and cut ties; it promotes healthy relationships while making the user aware of any poor habits and love choices they may inhabit.
How To Use Malachite
Malachite is a powerful stone, so, unlike rose quartz, this is not one recommend for regular wear.
Instead, lean on malachite when it is needed most by holding it and setting your intentions.
Amethyst is another gentle healer; this serene stone is most commonly associated with the crown chakra and can help matters of the heart by working on matters of the mind.
It can help to boost self-worth and self-love, a must for any healthy relationship. It is great for calming situations and for support after a break-up.
If you’re having a crisis of confidence, or getting too inside your own head in a relationship, lean on the powerful healing energies of amethyst.
How To Use Amethyst
Wear amethyst as a piece of jewellery or keep it next to your bed or under your pillow to feel its effects.
Just like rose quartz, amethyst is one of the best crystals to sleep with for love because not only will it help you get a restful night, but it will also work on your heart’s desire while you rest.
Sometimes lady luck is needed where matters of the heart are concerned. And this is where aventurine comes in handy.
Its reputation for good fortune and its ability to resonate with the heart chakra makes aventurine one of the best crystals for finding love.
Leaning on its lucky abilities can be especially helpful for those who are seeking new relationships, but equally, if you need a little luck to rekindle your relationship, then aventurine has your back.
How To Use Aventurine
Keep this stone close throughout the day to act as your lucky charm.
If you’re looking to manifest a new relationship, try to meditate and focus on what you want to achieve. Hold aventurine in your hand and focus closely on the desired outcome.
While this dappled pink and black stone promotes romantic love, it also serves as a reminder that there is both darkness and light in every relationship and that love doesn’t come without its fair share of pain.
However, this love crystal works to cleanse pain, anger, hurt and resentment from the heart and from within relationships making it one of the most trusted crystals for finding true love.
How To Use Rhodonite
Place rhodonite in the bedroom or in the love corner of your home for greatest impact. It will allow you to appreciate and balance all sides of your relationship.
You can also use this crystal while you meditate on the problem you are facing.
Garnet connects with the root chakra to bring stability and power within oneself; it promotes passion and sexuality to help the wearer confidently express themselves in a relationship.
This love stone can also be helpful for healing past traumas and patterns of harmful behaviour so use these healing crystals for lost love scenarios to heal the heart and move on in a healthy way.
How To Use Garnet
Garnet is usually found as a piece of jewellery. To keep it as close as possible to your heart chakra, wear garnet in a necklace.
Using rough cut garnet in meditation can be very powerful too.
There are many crystals for attracting love that you can use if you’re looking to start a relationship or strengthen an existing partnership.
But remember that crystals that work to heal the heart chakra can also be used for self-love and from healing from past heartbreaks.
I can attest to the effectiveness in rose quartz and amethyst, in particular, for attracting love. I once put tumble stones of both under of my pillow and a few weeks later, I met someone.
Whatever your desired outcome, keep your healing crystal close or use it in your meditation and manifestation practices to feel the benefits.
