An extensive guide to using crystals for manifestation in the areas of love, wealth, and abundance, broken down by which crystals are best for what and how to implement them into your daily routine.
Manifestation is a powerful tool that many swear by for building their dream life. In fact, I used to be one of them! (Back in the day when I was disciplined and actually set time aside for manifesting . . . alas, full-time work has a way of sucking the motivation out of me.)
However, something I’ve never tried is manifestation crystals. Which is crazy – I absolutely love crystals and manifestation. Why not combine the two?
So I have put on my research hat, read all the articles, and watched all the videos. And today I am excited to share my beginner’s guide to manifestation crystals with you all! It’s a hefty post, so here’s a table of contents if you want to skip to a particular part.

What Is Manifestation?
I’m stealing my definition from my scripting manifestation post for this!
In simple terms, manifesting is focusing your energy and intentions towards a specific goal and, through the power of your thoughts, attracting that into your life.
You can get as spiritual as you like around it; delve into energy or the universe. Whatever you believe! However, I’m somewhat more of a cynic and believe in manifestation more in the psychological sense.
Psychology Today’s article about manifestation has a passage that summarises my feelings towards it almost perfectly:
Research by Dr. Carol Dweck clearly shows that believing you can do something makes it more likely that you’ll successfully do it. That means that our beliefs about our ability to learn, grow, and succeed—our growth mindset—can indeed affect whether we effectively manifest what we desire.
Importantly, this research suggests that if we truly believe we can achieve something, we are willing to do the hard work to achieve it. This is in contrast to law-of-attraction style manifestation which suggests that belief alone is enough to bring about manifestation. Ultimately, the science suggests that our beliefs bring about behaviors (and responses from others) that lead to the outcomes we desire.Psychology Today: What Is Manifestation? Science-Based Ways to Manifest
I don’t necessarily believe in “the universe looking out for me” – but I strongly believe in the power of sitting down, focusing on a desire, and channeling my energy into it. Personally, physical touchstones of this also help the manifestation stick in my brain – and remind me of my goals day-to-day. Hence, the interest in crystals!
How To Use Crystals To Aid Manifestation?
There are many ways that you can incorporate crystals into your manifestation routine. Here are a few of my favorites that my research has come across:
- Hold your crystals while you manifest or meditate (making sure to choose a crystal that aligns with your goal – we’ll get into that in a minute!)
- Set specific intentions for each crystal
- Wear your crystals close, as jewelry or maybe by keeping tumbles in your bag
- Have crystals displayed in your living space
This post provides an informative and concise 4-step method for cleansing and charging your crystals! I highly recommend the read.
The Best Crystals For Manifesting Love
TL;DR – MY TOP PICK FOR A LOVE MANIFESTING CRYSTAL: This adorable Etsy find is a bracelet featuring 2 of the top crystals for manifesting love: rose quartz and rhodonite. Plus, it’s wearable – so you can keep it on you at all times.
Everybody needs love; whether that’s romantic love, family love, or even within friendships. Many people use crystals to manifest deeper connections with their loved ones – or to attract new people into their lives. However, you don’t have to look externally. You could even try to use healing crystals to manifest confidence and self-love – from there, the rest tends to fall into place anyway!
Whatever type of love you want to manifest, these 5 crystals are perfect.
1. Rose Quartz
. Rose Quartz speaks softly to all kinds of love; from healing communication with family to developing a deeper bond with spouses and friends, and even bringing sweeter notes of self-care into your own world.Tiny Rituals: Rose Quartz Meaning: Healing Properties And Everyday Uses
We simply could not talk about manifesting love without talking about rose quartz. It’s one of the most well-known heart chakra stones – and can be used for love of all kinds. Plus – let’s be real – just look at it! Everything about the blush pink color sings sweet.
The common words that cropped up when people described this stone were: healing, feminine, compassionate, trust, harmony, unconditional love and kindness.
I’ve chosen a selection of items from small businesses on Etsy that feature Rose Quartz. You can use these either as home decor (imagine having a dedicated meditation or manifestation space!), to hold while you manifest, or even to wear day-to-day.
Amethyst will stimulate your heart and open yourself up to more love. It will break down your walls, and it will release all your fears and worries about love.Crystals and Jewelry.com – Amethyst: Meaning, Healing Properties and Powers
Amethyst is hands down one of my favorite stones. I mean, just look at it – it’s utterly beautiful. As a necklace, or featured piece of home decor. It’s really inexpensive too – so you could easily decorate your entire home with it. (And I sure am tempted to . . . )
Amethyst is touted to be, quite literally, a healing stone. Its properties are geared towards helping you heal from grief, breakups, anger, pain (so all the fun stuff!) and allow you to be tranquil. Its name comes from the Greek word ‘améthystos‘ and the translation is literally “not intoxicated”.
Essentially, it’s great at helping you get in the best possible mindset to receive love – and healthy love!
Common words used to describe amethyst: tranquility, serenity, grounded, wisdom, healing, balanced emotions, courage.
Again, I’ve selected four Etsy items that allow you to introduce amethyst into your everyday life.
