The Best Crystals To Include In Your Autumn Décor

Whether you're looking for warmer autumn vibes, a little witchy spookiness in your home décor, or you simply love collecting crystals and want to know which ones are the best to put on display during the autumn months, we have a list for you. These stones are sure to bring balance to this time of change, allowing you to get through the transition into darker days with a little more clarity and comfort. 

When you think of autumn décor, hues of red, yellow, and orange surely fill your mind — the colors of the fall trees. Well, this is a great way to pick which crystals have just the right vibe for this time of year — just look for those warm and soothing colors, and you'll be on the right path. Not only will you increase your nature-inspired décor game, but Astrology Answers also points out that using crystals for your autumn decorations will bring more focus into your home and, of course, more positive energy.

1. Carnelian for new beginnings

Orange and sometimes red, like the display of autumn leaves when you look outside, carnelian is a beautiful stone that fits into your fall décor for more than its colors. Truly says that this healing stone is often connected with the months of August and September, making it an unofficial birthstone for those born under the Virgo zodiac sign. Truly also points out that carnelian is a stone of new beginnings, which also ties it into this time of year when things are changing for the upcoming fall season.

This warm-colored crystal is connected to the root, sacral, and solar plexus chakras — that's a pretty powerful trio. Add a beautiful tumbled carnelian to your living room centerpiece and décor to bring more balance, relaxation, and happiness into your family gathering space — they'll look great with gourds, pumpkins, and other fall harvest goodies, while also working fantastically with your Halloween décor.

2. Sunny citrine

Valentin Magro calls citrine "the color of autumn," and that's a fitting moniker. The company compares the sparkly yellow tones of this crystal to the likes of an autumn forest, and we can't help but agree. It reminds us of the yellowish fall leaves on the birch tree. 

Tiny Rituals says that this sunshine stone is perfect for bringing positivity into your life and your home. Because of its color and link to that big bright ball of gas in the sky, it's an excellent stone to integrate into your home décor in the fall as it starts to get darker for longer each day. Its energetic spirit makes it excellent for adding to your fall dining table centerpiece, ensuring you start each day with positive energy and a boost of joy. You can also keep citrine in your kitchen to aid in the positive energy you put into the meals you cook.

3. Protective tiger's eye

Daily Life lists tiger's eye in the number one slot for crystals you need during the fall months. It's another shimmery gemstone that takes on the gorgeous colors of the fall leaves as they transition to browns. As an extremely protective stone, tiger's eye offers healing during this time when many of us begin experiencing things like seasonal depression and colds from the changes in temperature. It's also known to stabilize moods.

Though it has yellow hues, it's not too energetic of a stone to keep in your bedroom, which is an excellent space for this balancing and healing crystal. Add it to your fall décor on a nightstand or your dresser. If you're in the mood for some self-care, take the chill out of your bones with a warm bath surrounded by tiger's eye and some pumpkin-spice-scented candles to get in the spirit of the season.

4. Red jasper for grounding

Jasper is a stone that comes in many colors and designs, but the red variety is excellent for autumn. Not only does this crystal offer grounding energy with its connection to the root chakra, according to Deb's Glad Stones, but the stone also brings comforting earth energy into your home. 

With its rich reds, red jasper would surely look terrific not only in your fall décor displays but also with your Halloween décor, as it surely resembles the blood that vampires enjoy dining on and that zombies have leaking from their brains. As a powerfully protective stone, per Tiny Rituals, red jasper would work perfectly added into fall decorative displays right inside your home's entry doors. Use this crystal in prominent displays — in windows, on tables that are common ground in your home — to help keep your home, and all of those within, safe.

5. Ancestral petrified wood

One of the biggest reasons this healing crystal makes its way onto this list is that it has a major connection to ancestry (via Mooncat Crystals), and it's this time of the year that the veil is thinning between the living and the dead. Bring this crystal into your home (and your magical workings, if you're into that) to help connect with your loved ones that have passed on.

Aside from the connection to familial history, petrified wood is grounding and helps connect us to nature. Use it in spaces of your home where you gather, like the living room and dining room. The beautiful crystallized pieces of wood will pair well with any nature-inspired autumn displays, like those with dried leaves and mini pumpkins. If you find yourself setting up a display for Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), include this crystal in your ritual altar as well.
