What Crystals Are Good For Leo?
Leo's ruling planet is the Sun, which gives them their enthusiasm, zest for life, and childlike joy in the face of all opportunities and potential challenges.
Leo is a fire zodiac sign, so the best crystals for a Leo are those that work with fiery, creative, and passionate energy.
Those born under the zodiac sign of Leo are generally thought to be natural leaders, full of positive and creative energy. That's part of what makes a Leo an amazing business partner and leader.
Leos tend to be very in tune with their root chakras, which can become problematic if they're dealing with some negative energy flow through their lower chakras. That's when some of the potentially negative traits of the fifth sign of the zodiac might come to the forefront. It could manifest in the form of excessive fiery energy: unruliness, rebelliousness, fickleness, hastiness, or overindulgence.
At such times, some of the recommended crystals for Leo zodiac signs are those that work to restore the balance in the overall energy.
What color stone is best for Leo?
Since the Leo sign is very much a solar sign, the main powerful color when it comes to wearing crystal jewelry or using crystal decor is yellow. Yellow healing crystals work with your solar plexus chakra and support your personal power and ability to manifest.
Leos will also greatly benefit you if they wear crystals that are orange (sacral chakra, creativity, fertility) and red, brown, or black (root chakra, protective and grounding crystals for Leo).
Which gemstones and crystals for Leo bring good luck?
Lucky Leo zodiac crystals are those that work with the solar plexus, sacral, and root chakras, because Leo is one of the most powerful signs when it comes to manifesting wealth, abundance, and success.
As a result, gemstones that attract the frequency of professional success; spiritual, emotional, and material abundance; and inspiration, will be particularly lucky for Leos.
Next, we'll talk about the best 10 crystals for Leo sign natives. These Leo energy gemstones can activate the Sun's ancient wisdom and fill you with the light's healing energy and high vibes.

How Do You Use Leo Crystals?
Whether you have one Leo crystal or a set of them, the process of using your Leo crystals involves two basic steps: preparation (cleansing and charging) and actual use (elixirs, rituals, meditation).
1. Preparing Leo crystals for use
Preparing your Leo gemstone for use is an essential part of the process. While your crystal has constant interaction with the energies around it, it accumulates an energetic buildup much like our skin accumulates buildup after a long day.
Just as in the case of our skin, it's important to practice a sort of energetic hygiene for your crystal protection or crystal healing ally. When it comes to crystals, it's all about cleansing and charging.
Mind you, actually cleaning the physical surface of your crystal is also important! But before trying out any method for that, look through our guides for details about how each stone should be cleaned so you don't affect its physical integrity or come into contact with any toxic substances. (Never clean Pyrite with water, for example, since it creates acid when in contact with water!)

Due to the fiery nature of a Leo gemstone, some of the best ways to cleanse it is to use methods that involve the energy of fire to some extent, like burning sage or incense.
Another option is using light (which is a solar element) through a device like the Rose Salt Night Light which combines the cleansing power of the light with the cleansing power of salt.
Now that your crystal is freshly cleansed, it's time to charge it. Due to the solar nature of Leo, the best way to charge your Leo gemstone is to use sunlight.
First, you’ll want to check that your healing crystals can hack sunlight for extended periods of time. Some of them start to fade and lose their color when they’ve been out for too long. This is a vital step in protecting your gemstones.
Once you’re sure your chosen stones will be fine, place them under direct sunlight at noon for around one hour per day. Three days in a row is a great amount to aim for, but even once or twice is still good!
If the sun doesn’t want to show its face, you can do the same by keeping your crystal under lamplight for one day. You can choose a crystal lamp that fits your purpose from our store. We have tons of powerful healing crystal lamps to choose from.
2. Using Leo crystals
You can come up with your own ideas for how to use your crystals, but we're going to talk about some main directions you can choose to go in with your Leo gemstone.
Due to the nature of the Leo gemstone, some of the best goals for using these stones are manifesting, grounding, and working with or healing your lower chakras.
Decide on your end goal, see it clearly in your mind's eye, then decide how you want your Leo gemstones to help you achieve it.
You can use some of your Leo stones for crystal elixirs in order to achieve your goals. Read carefully about each crystal before trying to use it in an elixir though! You can check our blog on water-safe crystals to be sure.
There are crystals that are perfectly safe to use in elixirs, like the Amethyst Healing Water Bottle. By drinking the elixir, you literally take into your energetic field the frequency of the gemstone you are using and gain its numerous benefits as part of your process.
You can add your Leo gemstones to any type of ritual you've decided to use to achieve your purpose. We'd advise rituals that involve the Leo-specific elements of light, fire and the sun.
You can also come up with your own ritual by intuitively creating a crystal grid, placing your Leo crystals down wherever feels best, and finally setting them an intention of your choice.
You can also make your ritual as simple as holding your crystal in your hand and setting the intention for it to offer you guidance and support.
Remember that the key to a successful ritual is repetition and conviction. Though more evolved and complex rituals harness more spiritual power, they also demand more spiritual power as part of the process and exhaust more resources as they unfold.
Use the rituals that feel the most natural to you and your personal practice.
Another powerful way to use your Leo stones is to include them in your meditation practice or come up with a specific type of meditation for your particular purpose.
One very easy way to include your Leo gemstones into your meditation practice is to place your crystal on your crown (for clear and white crystals), third eye (for purple crystals), throat (for blue crystals), heart (for green crystals) solar plexus (for yellow crystals), sacral (for orange crystals), or root energy center (for red, brown, and black crystals) as you're meditating.
If you're using sound-based meditation, simply having the crystal in the same room with you is going to activate its frequency as you meditate.
You can read more about it in our ultimate guide to meditation and crystals.
