Are you planning a pregnancy? If it’s taking a little longer than you’d hope, or you’re feeling nervous about taking this big step, these ten crystals may help.
Disclaimer: I'm not a doctor or medical professional, and this article is not giving medical advice. Fertility problems can have a variety of causes, so you should always seek professional medical care and advice. Crystals should only be used as a compliment to regular medical care.
Crystals have been used for centuries to clear energetic blocks that may be interfering with fertility. Resolving these blockages can help you feel relaxed and emotionally ready for the wonders of creating a new life.
They’re not going to cure medical issues, but crystals can prepare you spiritually, mentally and emotionally for the big day ahead.
Which are the Best Crystals for Pregnancy and Fertility?
1. Carnelian (Stone of Creativity, Motivation, Endurance, Leadership and Courage)
Colour: Orange, Red
Chakra: Sacral, Root
Origin: India, Romania, USA, Peru, Britain, Czech Republic, Iceland, Slovakia, Brazil
Carnelian is my go-to crystal when it comes to fertility. It resonates with the Sacral Chakra, the energy centre for the male and female reproductive organs, and can remove energetic blockages.
It also activates the kundalini energy that is coiled at the base of the spine. This vital life force can assist the hormonal and reproductive systems, while stimulating balance in the reproductive areas.
Being a Stone of Creativity, carnelian is the perfect crystal when wishing to conceive. It’ll raise your confidence whilst boosting your sexual drive, encouraging spontaneous love making.
Tip for Using Carnelian: Carry carnelian in your trouser pockets or wear it on a belt. Keeping it close to the Sacral Chakra and reproductive area maximises its effects.
2. Moonstone (Stone of New Beginnings)
Colour: White, Cream, Yellow Milky Sheen
Origin: Sri Lanka, India, Australia
Moonstone, the Stone of New Beginnings, is a beautiful crystal when wishing to get pregnant. It aligns with the feminine energy of the moon, and reflects gentleness and emotional stability.
It’s also referred to as the Woman’s Healing Stone, as it’s said to balance the female cycles, metabolism and hormones, therefore helping you to conceive.
If you wish to regulate your cycles, open your heart to nurturing qualities, become more fertile or reduce stress, Moonstone could be a great choice.
Tip for Using Moonstone: Set your fertility intention on a full moon whilst holding moonstone. Then wear it as a necklace or keep under you bed throughout the night.
Colour: Yellow Green to Deep Green
Chakra: Sacral, Heart
Origin: Brazil, Russia. USA, Poland, Tanzania. Australia
Chrysoprase is a wonderful crystal for balancing the yin-yang energy which is so important when you wish to conceive.
It’ll increase sexual power and stimulate fertility, and is great to use if suffering from depression or becoming self-absorbed. It also energises the Heart and Sacral Chakras.
If you need help to feel optimistic, or are tormenting yourself with self-blame, chrysoprase can bring emotional health and calm.
Note: Chrysoprase loses its colour in bright sunlight.
Tip for Using Chrysoprase: Carry a piece of chrysoprase with carnelian in your pocket to put a spark back in your love life!
4. Rose Quartz (Stone of Unconditional Love)
Origin: USA, Japan, India, Brazil, Madagascar, South Africa, Argentina, Mexico
Rose quartz is a "must have" crystal for fertility, as it’s a Stone of Love and is wonderful for opening your Heart centre. It imbues you with the qualities of self-worth and self-love which are vital when considering pregnancy.
It can also ease feelings of guilt or stress, which may surface if you don’t conceive as quickly as you wish.
Additionally, Rose Quartz stimulates sensuality and sexual potency, whilst filling you with self-mothering qualities.
Tip for Using Rose Quartz: Place rose quartz beside your bed and under your pillow, so you can gain its benefits throughout the night.
5. Green Jade (The Lucky Charm and Sovereign for Harmony)
Origin: Mexico, Russia, Guatemala, Myanmar, USA, China
Things can get a little intense and stressful when trying to conceive. Jade’s nurturing energy helps restore balance and love, by releasing pent up emotions that can cause an energy block.
The result is that jade helps you feel less sensitive, more relaxed and generally able to enjoy the process. It’s also said to be good for regenerating your pelvis area, bringing more blood flow and oxygen to the organs.
Tip for Using Green Jade: Just holding green jade allows you to absorb its wonderful energies. Pop a palm stone in your pocket so you can keep touching it throughout the day.
6. Green Aventurine (Stone of Opportunity)
Origin: India, Spain, Italy Brazil, China, Russia, Tibet, Nepal
Green aventurine is another lovely stone for pregnancy and fertility. Its energetic properties promote confidence and harmony, along with elements of luck, abundance and success.
If you’re working through unresolved emotional issues that could be causing an energy block, green aventurine can also steer you through this.
Tip for Using Green Aventurine: Use green aventurine in your meditation practice and carry a piece with you to amplify the intention.
7. Lepidolite (Stone of Transition, Stone of Peace)
Colour: Purple, Pink
Chakra: Third Eye, Throat, Crown, Heart
Origin: Czech Republic, Brazil, USA, Dominican Republic, Madagascar
Lepidolite is a special crystal that can enhance your mental wellbeing. It has a nurturing energy that, combined with its lithium content, helps ease feelings of depression and anxiety that can sometimes be present when trying to get pregnant.
As the Stone of Peace, lepidolite has an ability to help you achieve goals quietly, with minimal fuss. This means your anxieties won’t get triggered and you'll feel more emotionally balanced.
So, if you’re looking for a stone to offer a calming influence whilst trying to get pregnant, lepidolite may do this.
Tip for Using Lepidolite: Wear lepidolite in a necklace to restore inner peace and understand the reason behind an experience.
8. Rhodonite (Stone of Self Love and Unconditional Love)
Colour: Pink, Red
Chakra: Heart, Root
Origin: Sweden, Germany, Mexico, Spain, Russia, Brazil, Canada, UK, Peru
Pregnancy can be a challenging time, but rhodonite helps restore emotional balance and keeps you centred.
It's a wonderful heart-centred stone that's filled with healing energy, compassion and harmony. It’s also said to increase fertility and prepare the uterus for conception.
If you’re looking for a chi replenisher, need a boost to your confidence levels, or simply need to reconnect with self-love - which often gets neglected when trying for a baby- rhodonite is one of the best crystals for pregnancy.
Colour: Green and Pink
Chakra: Heart, Sacral, Root
Origin: South Africa, USA
Unakite is a beautiful mixture of pink and green that stimulates, cleanses and strengthens the Heart, Sacral and Root Chakra. This allows it to ground negative energy and promote a positive mindset - both of which are key to boosting fertility.
Additionally, unakite helps you remember and understand how past experiences could be causing blockages in your energy field. These blockages can cause a range of spiritual issues, including affecting fertility.
As a bonus, some people believe unakite helps maintain the health of mother and child through a pregnancy.
Tip for Using Unakite: Make a unakite elixir by placing it in a small glass bowl set in a container of water. This will increase its unique vibrational effect and bring a sense of well-being.
10. Ruby Zoisite
Colour: Red / Green
Chakra: Heart, Root
Origin: Tanzania, Zambia, India, Madagascar, Kenya, Austria, Sri Lanka
Ruby zoisite combines green zoisite, ruby and black tschermakite. This gives it a unique vibrational influence - and makes it one of the best crystals for fertility and supporting the reproductive organs.
As an energy amplifier, ruby zoisite boosts your energy field and increases vitality. It can also release trapped or suppressed energy, bringing hidden feelings to the surface.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed and wish to enhance positive energy, stimulate fertility or ease problems with the ovaries or testes, ruby zoisite is a great choice.
Tip for Using Ruby Zoisite: As ruby zoisite is slow-acting, it’s a good idea to wear it against your skin for long periods.
Other Tips for Using Crystals for Fertility
There are many ways crystals can be used for fertility and pregnancy. Here are a few examples:
- Wear fertility crystals in jewellery, such as a bracelet or necklace, once you have set your intention. This keeps you in contact with its healing energy.
- Be mindful of the moon cycles and tune into its wonderful energy when charging fertility crystals.
- Make a crystal elixir using either rose quartz or carnelian.
- Place a fertility stone in a bath or around the edge, as this is a lovely way to connect with their energy.
- Set a fertility grid under your bed to boost the effect whilst you sleep.
- Rest fertility crystals on your belly or over your ovaries for 10-15 minutes, visualising the start of a new creation.
- Use a crystal singing bowl tuned to the note D to balance the Sacral Chakra.
- Meditate with your chosen fertility crystal.
- Sleep with the crystals beside your bed or under your pillow.
As well as crystals for fertility, certain essential oils may be helpful - clary sage, geranium, and lavender to name a few. You can put a few drops of these into the bath with the crystals for a wonderfully relaxing experience.
Which Angels are Associated With Fertility?
There are many Angels you could invoke to help with fertility. They are around us all the time, but sometime we need a little more assistance.
The angels I invoke are:
- Angel Yusamin – the Guardian Angel of Fertility
- Archangel Gabriel – Angel of Fertility and the Angelic Messenger
- Angel Lailah – Angel of Conception
- Angel Omael – helps with fertility and is a Guardian Angel of pregnant women
- Archangel Michael – for underlying medical conditions affecting your ability to conceive
- Archangel Jophiel – for when needing emotional support when trying to get pregnant
- Archangel Raphael – The Angel for Healing
There are many factors that can affect fertility, so you should always consult with a medical professional. Crystals can be used as a complementary tool for resolving energy blockages and improving your spiritual wellbeing though.
While many crystals may help with fertility, those affiliated with the Sacral and Heart Chakras are often the most powerful. Each of the ten crystals in this article are linked to these Chakras, making them great for fertility, sexuality and the reproductive organs.
My favourite crystal for fertility is moonstone. Its gentle and feminine energy compliments conception and motherhood and aligns my body's natural rhythm.
