If you were born between July 22 and August 23, then you're a Leo. Leo is an assertive and passionate zodiac sign. Leos have a natural inclination towards leadership and manifestation. With the help of birthstones and healing crystals, Leo can make the most of its natural potential.
We've already covered the 10 best crystals for Leo. Now we'll talk about Leo birthstones and how you can benefit from wearing Leo birthstone jewelry.
About the Leo Zodiac Sign
The astrological sign of Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac. It's also the second of the fire zodiac signs. The ruling planet of Leo is the Sun and the zodiac symbol is the Lion.
One of the key traits of Leo people is their ability to harness their personal power and lead. In fact, people born under the sign of Leo are natural-born leaders. It feels perfectly natural for a Lion to be in the driving seat of anything they get involved in. Sometimes, that might mean they don't make for that great a copilot, though. There can only be one Sun in the sky, after all.
A person born as a Leo is full of passion since Leo is a fire sign. Leos are driven, ambitious, motivated, full of life, and quick on their feet. Their energy flows like lava some days. During stressful times, they may develop a temper too. In some cases, they might have some issues with self-control if their ego is hurt.
What Is The Leo Birthstone?
What is a Leo birthstone? A Leo zodiac birthstone is the birthstone associated with the month when the Leo native was born. That means that we'll be talking about two Leo birthstones: Ruby for July Leos, and Peridot for August Leos.
What birthstone is Leo going to resonate with the most? Most likely, it will be the birthstone of the native's birth month, but it might be the birthstone of the other month, too. In some cases, you might resonate more with one of the birthstone healing crystals we'll talk about a bit later.
There's no such thing as the right or wrong birthstone for Leo. It's all about what feels right to you.

What Color Is Leo Birthstone Jewelry?
When it comes to powerful gemstones for Leos, the color influences the meaning.
Activating and inspiring Leo birthstones
Some of the most powerful inspiring and activating stones for Leo are red, like Ruby, Red Jasper, and Carnelian, which we already talked about.
Red gemstones are in tune with the sacral chakra, the Ruby birthstone, and the hot energy of the Sun.
Manifesting Leo birthstones
Since the Lion is such a solar, fiery sign, and its ruling planet is the Sun, the main Leo birthstone color is yellow.
Yellow Leo stones and crystals are very powerful. Yellow is also the color that resonates with the solar plexus chakra, the energy storage of your entire energetic body. Though that's not so directly reflected in the two birthstones we've already discussed, there is a full Leo birthstone list to choose from when it comes to yellow crystals.
Yellow Sapphire, for instance, is a stone of prosperity, success, and manifesting new beginnings. It's the gemstone of accumulating new knowledge, new resources, and new opportunities. The Ultimate Wealth Bracelet has a similar effect, helping you achieve success in everything you do, material-wise or not.

Clear and yellow Leo crystals are amazing for spiritual growth and development.
Diamond is the stone of amazing strength and durability. It's a symbol of resilience and spiritual power. It talks about the ability to gain clarity and perspective with the help of contemplation and personal experience.

Healing Leo gemstones
Green gemstones play an important role in the healing process for Leos. Leos are some of the most passion-oriented natives of the zodiac. They love deeply and they hurt deeply when it doesn't work out.
The meaning of green gemstones for Leo is that of heart chakra healing. These crystals work very well together with Peridot for Leos.
Grounding Leo crystals and stones
Other Lion gemstones are black or brown, resonating with the root chakra. These stones are great for grounding Leo's creative energy. They support the manifesting power of this solar star sign.
As a Leo's energy is very passionate and action-oriented, grounding is an essential part of maintaining this star sign’s well-being. One of the great grounding stones for Leo is Black Onyx.
Because it has a powerful connection to the earth element, Black Onyx balances a Leo's energy and shields it from low vibes. While used on its own it's powerful, but the best way to use it is in combination with other stones like in the Solar System Stones & Bracelet Set.
How Do You Connect To Leo Birthstones?
Connecting to your Leo birthstones is a process that involves three important stages:
- - make sure that you have chosen the right crystal for your energy and situation;
- - open up to your stone's energy, and;
- - start to interact with its energy in order to achieve your purpose.
1. Is it the right crystal for you?
If you follow your intuition when first choosing your crystal, then, generally speaking, you can be sure that it is the right crystal for you. But it might turn out that it's not the right crystal for your particular goal or at this particular point in time.
If you're not feeling that intuitive connection with the crystal you decided on, don't try to force it. Embrace the presence of that particular crystal in your life. Release any disappointment or confusion you might feel right now. Remember that when you and a crystal connect, it's always for a higher purpose.
Ask your higher self to guide you towards a crystal that will help you fulfill your initial goal. Be open to what your intuition tells you. The right choice for you might not be a particular crystal from a list you had in mind. That's perfectly fine.
2. How do you open up to your crystal?
Now you have the right crystal for your goal. It's time to connect with it on a consciously aware level.
Hold your crystal in the palm of your hand and close your eyes. Focus on the cool feeling of the natural stone on your skin. Visualize that coolness seeping into your palm; it's slowly becoming part of you. Now focus on the warmth of your skin compared to the crystal. Visualize the warmth of your skin seeping into the crystal that you're holding. You are becoming one with the stone.
You might experience a tingly feeling in your palm as you do this exercise. If you do experience it, then it's a clear sign you're very connected to the stone you've chosen. In case you don't feel it though, that doesn't mean that the process didn't work. It simply means that you process energetic exchanges differently.
3. Starting to interact purposefully with the crystal's energy
Congratulations! You and your crystal are now connected. You're ready to work together. Use whatever method you chose for this part of the process, whether it's rituals, meditation, or whatever else.
You can do this exercise with your crystal every time you use it. It's important to repeat the exercise with every use, particularly at the beginning of your experience with using crystals. In time, your energetic field will open up instinctively to that of your crystal.
Set your Leo birthstone an intention and away you go! The crystal will act as an extension of yourself in the ethereal, or quantum, field.
