You're looking for Yellow Sapphire.

We're here to give you the full scoop on Yellow Sapphire, a crystal bound to be your new BFF!

Yellow Sapphire Crystal Meaning

Yellow Sapphire's meaning can be intuited from its sunny color.

Acting as a catalyst for growth and expansion, Yellow Sapphire opens up new horizons—sparking creativity and manifesting abundance—while anchoring its wearer in a sense of humor and lighthearted joy.

Wearing Yellow Sapphire jewelry

As expected, Yellow Sapphire is an absolute knockout when it comes to fashion—its sunny color pops against any skin tone, and its versatility means it can be dressed up or down with ease.

We like to keep things simple with a Yellow Sapphire bracelet or anklet to give our everyday outfits an enchanting touch, but if you're feeling bolder, go for a statement necklace or pair of earrings!

Yellow Sapphire crystal at home

We like having a couple of stones in a bowl right by the door. Just seeing them as we head out for the day is enough to give us a jolt of energy for the tasks ahead. And having those Yellow Sapphires welcome us home at the end of a long day means we're always ending on a high note.

Yellow Sapphire's zesty vibes also work well in the bedroom. Imparting a sense of whimsy and playfulness, it helps long-term couples rediscover the delight of each other's company, and encourages new couples to let their hair down and enjoy the ride. Unfurl the sheets and let the good times roll!

Yellow Sapphire crystal at work

Ever snap at a coworker or customer for no good reason?

We've all been there. We always say it isn't like us to do that but, over time, the little things begin to add up, and the pressure of holding it all together takes its toll.

Give yourself a break with Yellow Sapphire!

The stone won't do the work for you, but it will give you the strength and clarity needed to stay calm under pressure, and see things from other people's perspectives. Once you gain a better understanding of where they're coming from, it'll be easier for you to find common ground.

Meditation with Yellow Sapphire crystal

A quick 5-minute session before you jet off to work in the morning should give you enough of a boost of power through the day, but if you're looking for something more substantial, give yourself an hour or two on the weekend.

Here's a rundown of how we do it:

  • Lie down on a mat or towel in a comfortable position, with your Yellow Sapphire placed on your Solar Plexus chakra.
  • Focus on your breath until a natural rhythm starts to emerge.
  • Visualize some clouds, with just a sliver of the sun peeking through.
  • Bit by bit, allow the sun to expand in your mind's eye, until it's big and bright and shining down on you in all its glory.
  • Allow yourself to bask in its warmth for as long as you like, and when you're ready, open your eyes.
  • Take a few deep breaths, and carry that sunshine with you throughout the day!

Yellow Sapphire crystal therapy

There's something deceptively simple about Yellow Sapphire's cheerful energy that belies its power to effect deep and lasting change.

But don't let that fool you! This stone is the real deal and has been used for centuries to heal physical, mental, and emotional imbalances.

Yellow Sapphire helps ease symptoms associated with mental disorders such as anxiety, depression, and OCD. It also helps to reduce stress and is an effective treatment for migraines and tension headaches.

On a physical level, Yellow Sapphire can be used to treat issues related to your gallbladder, liver, and spleen.

Yellow Sapphire Properties

Yellow Sapphire, at its core, is like any other Sapphire. The key difference separating it from its more famous cousin Blue Sapphire is its delectable golden-yellow hue, which can look anything from pale lemon to rich buttery gold.

Ironically enough, the presence of this color comes about due to a lack of iron. Who could have imagined that taking something away from a Sapphire could add so much to its appeal?

The same seemingly contradictory forces are at work when it comes to the stone's energy. There's nothing wrong with fun and frivolity, but when it's all you ever focus on, life can start to feel pretty empty. There must always be a balance between the light and the dark, the fun and the serious, and Yellow Sapphire teaches us how to restore that equilibrium—in the world, and within ourselves.

Yellow Sapphire healing properties

Yellow Sapphire's healing properties are no joke. Aside from helping treat mental disorders like anxiety and depression, the stone can also help us work through traumas, both big and small.

Good cheer is about more than just putting on a brave face for everyone else. It's about genuine happiness, a purposeful lightness of being that can only come from within. Yellow Sapphire coaxes that light out of us, even on the darkest of days.

Yellow Sapphire metaphysical properties

The stone carries with it the energies of good fortune, prosperity, and success. Money surely isn't everything but, let's face it, it does make life a whole lot easier!

When things are going well for us financially, we have the opportunity to focus on other aspects of our lives that bring us joy. We can finally take that trip we've been dreaming of, or maybe start our own business.

Yellow Sapphire's relentless positivity will give you the courage to seize those opportunities when they come knocking. And with this stone holding court over your Solar Plexus chakra, you better believe they will!

Cleansing and Charging Yellow Sapphire Crystal

Cleansing your Yellow Sapphire makes sense from a practical standpoint. It's a shame to hide its brilliance under a layer of grime!

But there's more to it than that. Like all crystals, Yellow Sapphire absorbs negative energy over time. The full-bore cheerfulness of your stone can start to feel a bit forced if it isn't given regular breaks to rest and recharge.

The good news is that, because Yellow Sapphires are so durable—they're rated 9 on the Mohs hardness scale—they can handle just about any cleansing or charging method you throw at them.

Check out our articles on cleansing and charging for a deeper dive into the topic, but if you just want to use your stone as much as possible, these methods should keep your Yellow Sapphires clean and refreshed with barely any effort!

How to cleanse Yellow Sapphire crystal

We recommend a daily cleanse for your Yellow Sapphire. Its open, friendly nature means that negativity can sneak up on it pretty easily. They'll bounce back quickly, but it's still best to nip any bad vibes in the bud before they have a chance to take hold:

  • Hold your Yellow Sapphire in your hand and place it under running water. Warm water is best here, so if your tap runs cold, you might want to give it a minute to heat up first.
  • 30 seconds of continuous contact should be enough to rid your stone of any residual negativity.

We told you it was easy!

How to charge Yellow Sapphire crystal

Despite its sunny disposition, we find that Yellow Sapphire responds very well to moonlight:

  • Place your Yellow Sapphire outside or near an open window during the night, letting it soak up the moon's gentle light.
  • Wait six to eight hours.
  • Grab your stone as soon as you wake up—and feel the difference!

With a freshly charged Yellow Sapphire in tow, nothing is stopping you from going out and taking on the world!

Yellow Sapphire Crystal Pairings

Sprightly and vivacious, Yellow Sapphire is as popular among other stones as it is among us mere mortals. Go with whatever your gut tells you—chances are, your Yellow Sapphire will play nicely with any crystal you already have—and have fun!

We leave you with one beginner-friendly combo that can help you intuit all the other combos your Yellow Sapphire is dying to try:

Yellow Sapphire and Carnelian

Get those creative juices flowing like never before with a Yellow Sapphire and Carnelian pairing!

Carnelian is known as the artist's stone, and for good reason. It has a flair for bringing out the creative side in everyone, from painters to poets.

But Carnelian isn't just about art. This crystal can boost your confidence, help you overcome shyness, and make it easier for you to speak your truth.

In other words, Carnelian is the ideal partner for Yellow Sapphire if you're feeling a little intimidated by all the opportunities that are suddenly opening up for you. With these two stones in your corner, there's no way you can fail!

Yellow Sapphire Crystal and Chakras

The stone plays an instrumental role in activating our Solar Plexus chakra.

Yellow Sapphire Crystal and Zodiac

All Sapphires serve as the zodiac stone for those born under Taurus. Yellow Sapphires, in particular, are believed to resonate strongest with Virgos.


Where Blue Sapphire can be cool and a bit aloof, especially to beginners, Yellow Sapphire exudes warmth, generosity, and good cheer. Think of Yellow Sapphire as the homecoming queen's bestie: equally as alluring, but with a down-to-earth quality that can't help but draw people in. 

Whether you're a total newbie or a seasoned pro, Yellow Sapphire's powers—from good fortune to prosperity, creativity, and motivation—are always within reach. No matter where you are on your journey, there's a Yellow Sapphire out there with your name on it!

Don't just settle for smiling through the pain anymore. It's time to let your light shine bright with the help of a Yellow Sapphire!
