The Best Crystals Every Gemini Should Have In Their Home

What do Prince, Angelina Jolie, The Notorious B.I.G., Alanis Morrissette, J.F.K., and George Orwell have in common? They were all born under the astrological sign of Gemini! Anyone born between May 21 and June 21 falls under the sun sign of Gemini. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, as is Virgo, and is the third-youngest sign on the zodiac chart.

What does it mean to be a Gemini? Gemini is an air sign and a mutable sign, meaning they are very much a go-with-the-flow type. According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, those born under a Gemini sun are adaptable, gentle, curious, quick-witted, sociable, and fun. They also have tendencies to be indecisive and inconsistent. They are represented by "the twins" Castor and Pollux holding hands, and this duality often leads to the association of being "two-faced."

If you fall under the sun sign of Gemini and resonate with the tendencies to be flaky, inconsistent, etc., a great tool to aid you as your work through these issues and anxieties are healing crystals. Different crystals provide different strengths and enhance various parts of your personality while soothing other anxieties and issues you may face. Read on for an array of crystals that are great for Geminis, both to enhance their already wonderful qualities and help reduce some of their more difficult aspects.

Pearl for soothing anxiety

According to Everybody in Mind Wellness Center, pearls are a great stone for Geminis, as it is one of the main birthstones for the sign. Pearls aren't technically crystals or gemstones in the way that those found in mines and mountains are, but are instead produced by oysters and mussels, known as mollusks. According to The Pearl Source, when food or other particles enter the mollusk, it covers the particle in something called nacre, which hardens the particle and builds it up. After anywhere from six months to four years, a hard, shiny pearl is formed.

Pearls are good for helping calm and soothe the often anxious Gemini. They are also a very balancing and harmonious gem, according to Crystals & Jewelry. They are very attuned to the moon and feminine energy. Keep this in mind as you work with pearls — practice healing with pearls along with the different lunar phases. Pearls are a great gem choice for Geminis and anyone looking to help balance themselves and calm anxious minds.

Moonstone for new beginnings

Moonstones are also a great crystal for Geminis. According to #Legend, moonstones help reduce irritation and promote calmness, as well as to sharpen your intuition and promote synchronicity. This also makes them great manifestation stones, especially when connected to the energy of a Gemini.

According to Tiny Rituals, moonstones are also great for smooth transitions into new beginnings and ventures. Geminis are known for their love of new beginnings, fresh starts, and adventures, and the combined calming and revitalizing energy of the moonstone will help Geminis go on these adventures with confidence, but also help aid them in taking time to think and process before making decisions.

Moonstones are most commonly found in Sri Lanka and Southern India, as well as Australia, Armenia, Brazil, Mexico, and the United States, according to the American Gem Trade Association. They are most commonly sold in their translucent form, but also in hues of orange, green, blue, pink, gray, brown, and, most stunningly, rainbow.

Tiger's eye for grounding

Named for its striped pattern that resembles a tiger's eye, this crystal is often found in South Africa, as well as Brazil, Burma, the United States, and Western Australia, according to The Lillypad Village. Tiger's eye is a part of the mineral class chalcedony, per Tiny Rituals, and has a multitude of physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits. Physically, tiger's eye has been used to help balance the endocrine system and reduce symptoms of seasonal affectiveness disorder.

Emotionally, this crystal is perfect for Gemini's eager but sometimes disorganized mind. It is particularly good for helping ground and connect to oneself, particularly during chaos. It also helps build confidence and encourages Geminis to take action on their visions and fantasies. Everybody in Mind said the two-toned nature also helps reflect Gemini's energy back to them, helping create a healthy balance of action and thoughtfulness, eagerness and grounding. It is stabilizing and energizing, perfect for those born under a Gemini sun.

Clear quartz for focus

Clear quartz is one of the most versatile, widely used crystals there are. They come as small as little raw or tumbled quartz pieces to giant raw clusters and chunks. They're available in many varieties, but the best for a Gemini is the clear quartz.

According to #Legend, clear quartz, also known as the "Master Healer" for its numerous benefits, helps raise energetic vibrations, creating positivity, clarity, and focus. It also makes the energy of other crystals around it more potent and effective. This is perfect for those who fall under the sign of Gemini, who often have multiple interests at one time. Clear quartz will not only amplify the effectiveness of other crystals with different purposes but also provides Geminis with a clear, focused mind, helping them know what to do when, while still being able to pursue multiple interests.

Truly said, clear quartz helps reduce outside noise and chatter from the busy mind of a Gemini, helping them slow down and listen to their own voice and intuition as they embark on new projects.

Blue lace agate for communication

Blue lace agate is a very unique-looking stone. Its name comes mainly from its raw form, which is a pale periwinkle blue with lace-like stripes running through it. In its tumbled form, which is what you will be more likely to find in a crystal shop, it is a soft periwinkle purple-blue with darker, more noticeable stripes.

As for what blue lace agate does, Crystal Vaults referred to it as the stone of the diplomat, as it is a major stone of communication and listening. Specifically, it helps open up the throat chakra and aids the user in communicating things when they feel they aren't heard with confidence and clarity, firmly rooted in their position.

This stone is perfect for Geminis, who are often accused of being "two-faced" or saying one thing when they mean the other. Blue lace agate, when used by a Gemini, can help clarify the user's intentions and meaning when communicating with others.

Aquamarine for confidence

According to EraGem, the crystal aquamarine was used and worn by ancient Greek and Roman sailors to protect them on their voyages. They were believed to be the treasure of mermaids and were specifically used to protect sailors during storms. Ancient Greeks would sometimes even throw their aquamarine stones into the ocean as an offering to Poseidon.

#Legend recommended aquamarine for Geminis for a few reasons. Some of the properties to be gained from aquamarine include helping the user overcome fears and self-doubt, build confidence, communicate clearly and authentically, ease hyperactive minds and imaginations, and clear confusion. Geminis tend to be a little blunt, and perhaps deliver their messages in a tone they don't mean. They also may have general issues with communication, which can be eased by using aquamarine.

Conveniently, aquamarine is a popular crystal in jewelry making and can easily be worn as a necklace, ring, earrings, or bracelet for daily wear, not unlike the ancient Greeks and Romans did.

Lapis lazuli for communication

The bright blue lapis lazuli is another great crystal for Geminis. While you may not be familiar with the stone, odds are you have come across it at one point in your life, mainly in art class. Lapis lazuli was used as blue pigment by artists during the Renaissance, and according to HyperAllergic, it was sometimes even more precious than gold. Famous paintings like Vermeer's "The Girl with the Pearl Earring" (1665) and Michelangelo's "The Last Judgment" (1563-41) have blues created with lapis.

According to My Crystals, lapis lazuli helps encourage self-awareness, confidence, compassion, balance, harmony, and a positive mood, as well as alleviating symptoms of depression, vertigo, and insomnia. It also helps people who become easily overwhelmed by their emotions, preventing breakdowns and anxiety attacks.

Per Everybody in Mind, Geminis benefit from lapis lazuli's ability to enhance communication, concentration, and performance in front of a group or crowd, noting it's often called the "performer's stone."

Sodalite for enhancing your voice

Another great crystal for Geminis is sodalite. This bright blue crystal is quite rare, as it is a feldspathoid, a mineral type that can only be formed in cooled lava, according to Sodalite Minds. It is mainly found in Afghanistan, but it has also been found in Brazil, Italy, and Greenland.

It is not only very rare but also very powerful. According to Tiny Rituals, sodalite has a powerful impact on the throat chakra. It is a magnificent crystal for enhancing communication, as well as empowering you to use your voice and ridding you of self-doubt. It is also referred to as the poet's stone, as it helps its user slow down and appreciate small beauties and helps rid you of mental blocks.

#Legend recommends sodalite for Geminis due to its ability to reduce irrational thoughts and anxieties, enhance logical thinking (especially for new endeavors), and help them get out of their head.

Blue apatite for creativity

Found in Brazil, India, Madagascar, Russia, and North America, blue apatite is a great crystal for ridding you of anxiety and a hyperactive mind, according to Crystals & Jewelry. It also helps you overcome the feeling of failure and move on after a mistake. Blue apatite is also a powerful crystal for enhancing creativity.

Everybody In Mind recommends blue apatite for Geminis not only for its calming and creative enhancing abilities, but it can also help the sometimes overactive Gemini solve problems quicker and more efficiently. Blue apatite also uniquely benefits Geminis due to its ability to increase physical energy and, in turn, enhance motivation.

Blue apatite is named after the Greek words "to deceive." Gemini is often associated with deception or, again, being "two-faced." However, that is often not the case for both the crystal and the zodiac sign. This crystal can help with communication and reveal the actual truth.
