Do you want to strengthen your Pisces qualities? Or are less desirable Pisces traits, such as escapism or being too trusting, affecting your life? These nine crystals for Pisces can help.
If you were born between February 19th and March 20th, you fall into the zodiac sun sign of Pisces, the twelfth zodiac sign. This is a water sign with a fish symbol, which reflects your serenity and compassion.
As an intuitive, sensitive and intelligent star sign, you love nothing more than to support others. Success is your focus and, with a strong sense of justice, you make a great friend or business partner.
Pisces have a huge emotional capacity. But with Neptune as a Ruling Planet, they can become a little overwhelmed. As you often take on other people's feelings, you may feel weighed down with the world’s problems.
Crystal healing can re-balance your Pisces traits and enhance your positive qualities. Here are nine of my favourite crystals for Pisces, along with tips for how to use zodiac crystals.
Which are the Best Crystals for Pisces?
1. Amethyst (Stone of Spirituality, Meditation and Contentment)
Colour: Purple to Lavender
Chakra: Crown, Third Eye
Origin: USA, Mexico, Canada, Russia, India, Sri Lanka, Britain, Brazil, Uruguay, Siberia, Africa
Amethyst is the birthstone and ascendant stone for Pisces. It’s also a crystal for the month of February and Pisces Moon.
Pisceans have a tendency towards escapism. This can sometimes lead to addictions, such as alcohol abuse and smoking. Amethyst, known as the Stone of Sobriety, was used in Ancient Times to prevent drunkenness. It helps strengthen your resolve to avoid overindulgence.
As one of the most spiritual stones, amethyst also opens a Pisces to the wonders of inner peace. This will help you to understand the reasons for certain behaviours, making it easier to overcome bad habits.
Tip for Using Amethyst: Amethyst has a calm vibrational energy that can encourage reflection during meditation. You can also place it beside your bed to improve sleep quality.
2. Bloodstone (Stone of Courage and Bravery)
Colour: Green with Flecks of Red
Chakra: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart
Origin: Brazil, China, Czech Republic, Australia, India, Russia
Bloodstone is a powerful grounding crystal for the Sun in Pisces and the month of March.
As a sensitive sign, you have a tendency to take on other people’s problems as your own. Bloodstone’s strong connection with the Root Chakra helps you to remember the importance of your own feelings, rather than always focusing on “fixing” others.
This stone’s connection with the lower Chakras also helps you to feel more focused and confident. Through this loving support, you’ll reconnect with your personal power.
Note: Bloodstone is also known as heliotrope.
Tip for Using Bloodstone: Wear a bloodstone pendant over your Heart Chakra. This will bring love and courage to daily challenges.
3. Labradorite (Stone of Serendipity and Magic)
Colour: Iridescent Blue, Greyish to Black, Yellow
Chakra: Third Eye
Origin: Russia, Canada, Scandinavia, Italy
Labradorite is a lovely stone for Pisces. It’s an intuitive gemstone and encourages you to trust your own judgment and wisdom.
With deep flowing emotions and a supportive nature, Pisces can sometimes give too much of themselves. Over time, this can turn into resentment. Labradorite teaches the wisdom of allowing others to learn their own lessons. Then you can balance caring for yourself with empathy for others.
Also, as the Stone of Magic, it brings luck and good fortune while stimulating your intuition. A bonus is that it’s a beautiful crystal for awakening artistic talents.
Origin: Australia, USA, Mexico, Italy, Greece, Namibia
Smithsonite is a gentle Pisces birthstone that radiates charm and kindness. These are characteristics that resonate with a Pisces nature. It helps to balance emotions and reduce stress.
Pisces is ruled by Neptune, so it’s one of the most psychic astrological star signs. As smithsonite resonates with the angels and is a stone of Neptune, it’s an excellent choice for enhancing a Piscean’s psychic strength.
Smithsonite also encourages a healthier approach to communication. Instead of becoming emotionally overstretched, it shows you how to remain compassionate while taking care of yourself.
5. Aquamarine (Stone of Courage)
Colour: Pale Blue/Green
Origin: Brazil, Madagascar, USA, Russia, Mexico, India, Afghanistan, Mozambique
Aquamarine is a beautiful Sun stone for Pisces as well as the month of March. Associated with water signs and Neptune, its calming energy encourages tranquillity.
This crystal balances and stimulates the Throat Chakra, while forming a bridge to the Heart Chakra. If you have something that you need to say, but can't find the right words, aquamarine will help you to communicate your thoughts with sensitivity.
As a Stone of Courage, this crystal supports your intellect and fortitude. It’ll give a Pisces the confidence to try something new, teaching you to overcome fears in difficult situations.
6. Blue Lace Agate (Stone of Articulation)
Colour: Pale Blue
Origin: Morocco, Brazil, India, Czech Republic, USA
Blue lace agate is a birthstone and Moon in Pisces crystal. Its soft pale blue colour calms anxiety and encourages positivity.
As Pisces is a sign associated with intelligence and creative talents, you enjoy success. But shyness can make public speaking or talking about your own achievements difficult.
Blue lace agate is a Stone of Articulation that balances and heals the Throat Chakra. This will help you to speak honestly when feeling anxious in social situations.
7. Fluorite (Stone of Discernment and Aptitude)
Colour: Rainbow of Colours
Chakra: Heart, Throat, Third Eye
Origin: Germany, Switzerland, Mexico, Norway, USA, Britain, China, Peru
Fluorite is a birthstone and Moon in Pisces crystal.
Pisces have strong mental abilities. Yet, when the Third Eye is closed or unbalanced, a Pisces may struggle with mental turmoil or confusion.
Fluorite is one of the best crystals for mental focus. It’ll balance and stimulate this Energy Centre, which opens your mind to new ideas and sharpens your thoughts. As a Stone of Discernment, it also hones your focus and determination.
8. Black Tourmaline
Origin: Brazil, Zimbabwe, Australia, USA, Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka
Black tourmaline is a powerful protection stone for Pisces. It acts as a metaphysical energy field, preventing negative energy, such as other people’s bad thoughts, from affecting you.
Pisces have a kind and generous nature, but sometimes this comes at a cost. Black tourmaline transmutes negative thoughts and emotions into a lighter vibration. This makes it easier to set boundaries and protects you from becoming overwhelmed by other people's emotions.
By using this Pisces gemstone, you’ll learn to respect your own needs and boundaries.
Tip for Using Black Tourmaline: Carry a piece of black tourmaline in your pocket to help to maintain your boundaries.
9. Sodalite (Harmonising Stone)
Colour: Blue with White Flecks
Chakra: Throat, Third Eye
Origin: Greenland, Brazil, Romania, France, Canada, India, Namibia
Sodalite is a birthstone for Pisces that activates the Third Eye. If you’re a hard-working Pisces who is driven by success, it’s one of the best stones to use.
With a mind-centred energy, sodalite stimulates creative ideas while quieting distracting thoughts. Sodalite can also boost your organisational skills, promote inner awareness, and encourage new insights
Sodalite gets its name from the Latin word Sodaltas, meaning comrades. This makes it a good stone for Pisces who wish to promote friendship in business.
Tip for Using Sodalite: If worries about your career are interfering with your focus, meditate with sodalite. This will quieten your mind so that you can concentrate on making the right decisions.
BONUS CRYSTAL - Yellow Sapphire
Yellow sapphire is a wonderful crystal for Pisces. It’s a stone for Jupiter, which is another of Pisces Ruling Planets. By directing its energy into the Solar Plexus, yellow sapphire helps with decision-making.
As a Stone for Wealth, this crystal stimulates action and reduces fear of risk-taking. It also enhances creativity, prevents procrastination, and manifests success. If you want a stone to support your dreams and ambitions, yellow sapphire is one of the best options.

Which Angels are Associated with Pisces?
These are my favourite Angels to invoke when using crystals for Pisces:
- Archangel Barakiel - This is the Guardian Angel for Pisces. Invoke Him for creative passions and ambition, particularly when undertaking a new project. I like to use coral or aqua coloured crystals with this Angel.
- Archangel Phuel - This Angel’s water energy is lovely for Pisces to help balance your emotions. Also, Phuel rules Neptune. Use aquamarine when invoking this Angel. He will help to calm your thoughts when feeling overwhelmed with people's problems.
