Crystals for the Winter Solstice

Crystals for the Winter Solstice


At the Winter Solstice, we celebrate the return of light and life to our world. We've come through a long dark season and now it's time to reflect on what we've learned and what we're bringing into this new year. It's also a time to connect with loved ones or mentors who have passed away. These crystals can help you honor all of these things as you return your home from darkness into light. The willl also help you get your self on the path of reaching for those new goals and achieving them. The following stones can assist on this day:


Amethyst is a violet or purple variety of quartz that's associated with the crown chakra, the seventh chakra and center of your spiritual power. It's a stone of wisdom and spirituality, as well as one that helps you find inner peace. Amethyst also resonates with all of your chakras, so it can help you heal any imbalances in these energy centers.

Amethyst is often used for insomnia and stress relief. If you're feeling anxious, depressed or just need to relax after a long day at work (or school), amethyst will help put your mind at ease so you can fall asleep more quickly and restfully throughout the night. The tranquil energy of this stone even makes it useful against nightmares!


Bloodstone is a stone of courage and action, so it's perfect for people who are feeling stuck or depressed. It helps with seasonal affective disorder and can be used to help heal emotional wounds. Bloodstone is associated with the heart chakra and is associated with the zodiac signs Pisces and Aries.

Blue Onyx

Blue Onyx: An excellent protection and communication stone. It helps bring balance, to your body and mind and help you overcome challenges. It helps stabilize and focus attention. It also rids of negative energies that you have previously absorbed and that are affecting your current life circumstances. It will assist you in achieving self control especially with your words. It removes your struggles in communication and give you the courage to say your thoughts and feelings in a healthy and supportive way.


Citrine is a stone of abundance and wealth. It's also a stone of creativity and imagination, which makes it great for manifesting your dreams!

If you're looking for a crystal that will help you manifest prosperity into your life, citrine is an excellent choice! If you feel stuck and don't know how to get out of your rut, then citrine can provide the boost of energy you need to make some big changes in your life. This beautiful golden-yellow quartz is a highly energized stone that will give you confidence as well as clarity about what steps to take next.


Garnet is a variety of the mineral species almandine. It’s a stone of the heart, helping to heal emotional wounds by bringing people together and creating trust. It’s also a stone of courage, inspiring bravery and confidence when dealing with difficult circumstances.

Garnet is also known as “the passionate stone,” since it encourages emotional openness and stimulates creativity through its energizing properties. It can be used to attract love or enhance existing relationships by encouraging communication between partners while reducing stress and anger. Because of its powers over our emotions, garnet provides protection against negative energy—including gossip!


Hematite is a grounding stone that helps to balance the body's energy. It is useful for insomnia and anxiety, as well as depression. Hematite can also be used to help with creativity, especially when it comes to writing or art.

Hematite can be used to clear negativity from the aura and promote harmony between the mind, body and spirit. This crystal promotes self-confidence, independence and strength of character by helping you release your fears about life challenges so that you may embrace new opportunities with courage instead of succumbing to fearfulness or uncertainty about whether or not you are up for whatever challenge that comes along next!


Lepidolite is a type of mica, and it can be used to help you relax during the long winter months. When you need some good old-fashioned R&R, this stone is helpful for soothing your nervous system, helping you unwind and get some much-needed rest. It’s also great for helping to release any negative emotions that may be weighing on your mind, keeping you from being able to sleep soundly at night.

Lepidolite has a nice pale lavender coloration that gives it an airy quality in addition to its other properties. If the color purple makes you feel calm and happy (like me!), this stone will make a great addition to your collection!


Rhodonite is a wonderful stone for the Winter Solstice, because it helps you to connect with your heart and ground your root. By connecting with your heart, you're able to feel more in touch with your emotions and therefore be more present in the moment. Rhodonite “the Stone of Love” helps fully clear, stimulate and reactivate your heart, which can help balance out any imbalances or blockages within this chakra by helping you release old wounds and heal old emotional wounds. It is one of the ultimate self love stone. Pair with Garrett to help work towards achieving your dreams. 

Ruby in Zoisite

Ruby in zoisite is a combination of red and green, which makes it a great stone for promoting balance between the heart and the mind. The two elements are clearly visible in this crystal, with ruby being the red part and zoisite representing the green. It's an excellent choice if you're looking to remove some negativity from your life, as well as helping you to become more creative.

Why not make sure that your crystal has a bit of both worlds?

Rutilated quartz

Rutilated quartz is a stone that helps you to get in touch with your intuition. It can help you to be more in tune with nature and the universe, which may lead to greater happiness and joy. This crystal will ground you and shield against negative energy, so it's a good stone for meditation or when dealing with any stressful situations that may arise during the winter months (such as money problems).

Smoky quartz

Smoky quartz is a stone that helps to ground and protect. It's also a great stone to use if you're feeling anxious, as it can help you feel centered and at peace.

This crystal is very useful when trying to communicate with others, whether or not they're on the same spiritual wavelength as you. In fact, smoky quartz can help bring harmony between anyone who comes in contact with it—you'll be able to see eye-to-eye with even those who disagree with your views!

These crystals can help you on the shortest day of the year.
