These 10 gemstones will help you attract, maintain, and enhance romantic love.
In addition to being beautiful, every crystal emanates a unique vibration that you can channel toward your magical intentions.
The following crystals are particularly helpful in love and attraction magic.
While I’ve provided an introduction to each crystal’s energetic signature here, you can also tune into a crystal’s energy directly, all on your own—and I think you should! To do so, begin by simply relaxing and appreciating the crystal for its physical appearance and the way it feels. Try holding it in one hand, then the other hand, and then holding it up to the sun. The more you can find the pure enjoyment of being with a crystal, the sooner it will reveal its magical properties to you.
Relaxed attention and present moment appreciation are portals into intuition. (Sidenote: this is as true with people as it is with crystals!)
(If you’ve never worked with crystals before or you’re not sure how to get started, here’s a beginner’s guide to working with crystals.)
This post is an excerpt from my book, Little Guide to Love Magic.
Aventurine resonates at the frequency of the heart chakra and can heal and bolster the heart. Wear or carry it to open your heart to a relationship, especially if you’re still healing from heartbreak or trauma. Aventurine can also be employed to boost your signal: in other words, potential partners will notice your presence (via your bright heart energy) more readily if you have an aventurine nearby or have recently imbibed the essence.
2. Cherry Quartz
Cherry quartz is a powerful, multipurpose love charm. It attracts, strengthens, sweetens, and magnetizes love. Once you know how you’d like to employ your cherry quartz, go outdoors on a sunny day and hold it in sunlight as you send your clear intention mentally into the stone. Then carry or wear it. You can also give it as a gift to a love interest to strengthen the attraction between the two of you.
Garnet is both grounding and passionate. It’s a strengthening stone: it strengthens the heart, the libido, and romantic attraction, and it does all of this by first strengthening the energy field and the physical body. With the help of this same dynamic, it can infuse a relationship with renewed joy, adventure, and intimacy. Wear, carry, or gift garnet for this purpose, or add the gem essence to beverages to create a passion potion.
Jasper heals the body, mind, and spirit by warming the heart and softening harshness. It’s an excellent stone to work with when your relationship is challenged by stress of any kind, including work stress, financial stress, illness, fatigue, major life changes, fear, uncertainty, or lack of trust. Sleeping with a jasper nearby is therapeutic, as is wearing or carrying the stone.
If your heart has been wounded in the recent or distant past, and you feel distrustful or fearful in relationships as a result, kunzite is a helpful mineral ally to choose, as it is deeply healing, soothing, and nurturing. To help heal a broken heart and foster a sense of trust, wear a kunzite or keep one nearby as much as possible, or add 2–3 drops of the gem essence to your drinking water or another beverage twice daily until you feel your heart open to love.
Lepidolite is a stone of attraction and is particularly helpful for finding true love. On a new moon, charge a lepidolite with your intention to attract romantic attention or to find true love. Then wear or carry it close to your heart. The former intention will manifest instantly, and the latter when conditions are ideal for love to flourish—in other words, when you are vibrating at a frequency that will support a healthy relationship. (If there seems to be a delay, continue to work with the recommendations in the previous chapters.)
This soft and creamy stone helps you open up to receptivity, which in turn opens you up to love. If you’re always going, doing, and being proactive (and definitely if you’re someone who uses phrases like “killing it” and “attacking your day”), peach moonstone can help you get into a relaxed and open state, which will make you more magnetic to love. Relationships that suffer from both partners working too much or being overly focused on work (to the detriment of their joyful togetherness) can benefit from peach moonstone. Try placing a small peach moonstone in a mister of rose water and misting your space to infuse your home with calming, heart-opening vibes that will support your relationship’s well-being. Wearing the crystal or placing it on your altar can also have a positive effect.
This appealing pink stone is protective, positive, and sweet. In partnerships, rhodochrosite helps heal long-standing disagreements and recalibrates the relationship to bring it back to its initial focus on love and togetherness. On a personal level, it supports self-love and self-acceptance. If you have attracted unhealthy or toxic partners in the past and want to change that dynamic, rhodochrosite can help. Place it on your altar, around your home, or near your bed. You will also benefit from wearing it, carrying it, or putting a few drops of the gem elixir in your drinking water daily until you have obtained the results you desire.
9. Rose Quartz
Rose quartz is a master healer, and being in its presence will always bring blessings. It’s simultaneously strengthening and softening, energizing and relaxing, and it’s among the best stones for healing emotional pain. Like its floral namesake, it vibrates at the frequency of love. To benefit from the metaphysical properties of rose quartz, give it as a gift to a partner or love interest, wear it, carry it, sleep with it nearby, place it on your altar, or put a few drops of the gem elixir in a beverage.
Ruby is a potent and dynamic crystal. If you want to change a relationship issue or challenge immediately, ruby can help. It’s aligned with the root chakra and the earth element as well as the crown chakra and the cosmos, so it has a transmuting energy that takes deep issues and transforms them into healing, positivity, magnetism, laughter, and love. Wear it, carry it, or take the gem essence to rapidly transform any relationship dynamic in a positive way.
