The Best Crystals for New Beginnings

Last Updated on

New beginnings, changes and transitions can sometimes wreak havoc on our emotional, physical and mental well-being.

It’s completely natural to feel stressed and overwhelmed when a new change is coming your way.

But you don’t have to go through any major changes alone. There are many different crystals for new beginnings that will guide you towards success. Use these crystals if you are moving to a new home, starting a new job or experiencing any type of change that you are fighting to accept.

7 of the Best Crystals for New Beginnings

Here are our favorite stones for new beginnings (along with some crystals for confidence) that have helped us (and will now help you).

No change is too big or too small for these powerful stones!

1. Rainbow Moonstone | Femininity & Optimism

Stone summary: Rainbow Moonstone (also known as Labradorite) is a beautiful and highly spiritual stone that will connect you to the Divine Feminine. If you aren’t sure what the Divine Feminine is, let me quickly explain. The Divine Feminine is a spiritual healing force. It’s something we all can feel, regardless of our gender. If you want to experience the Divine Feminine firsthand, go outside and experience nature.

By tapping into the Divine Feminine, you’ll be able to access feminine energy, which enhances your intuition and offers blissful vibrations.

So, why is this one of our favorite crystals for new beginnings? It often helps to think of Rainbow Moonstone as a mother: nurturing spirit paired with a fierce protectiveness. We love how Rainbow Moonstone guides us into new beginnings so we don’t feel as alone.

Those who are traveling, moving away, starting a new job or entering into a new phase will benefit from this nurturing stone.

2. Green Aventurine | Comfort & Opportunity

How to use this stone: Place this stone near you as you work or go about your day


Stone summary: One of the best crystals for new beginnings, in our opinion, is Green Aventurine. Green Aventurine, the Stone of Opportunity, is said to the luckiest stone of all. It will provide you with the confidence you need to move forward, manifest prosperity, attract wealth and explode your growth.

Who doesn’t want that kind of luck when entering into unknown territory?!

The soothing vibrations provided by Green Aventurine will get to work as soon as you hold this stone. The healing energy of Green Aventurine will give you a sense of peacefulness and comfort as it works to clear your energy field and rid you of any energy blocks you may have.

It’s a stone that is always there for you, especially on big days where you might feel more nervous than usual, such as a first date, a first day at work or a big move into a new home.

3. Fire Opal | Courage & Confidence

Orange polished stone

How to use this stone: Place this stone where you need its powers (in your office, in a new home etc)


Stone summary: Fire Opal commands your attention with its fiery appearance. It will mesmerize and dazzle you with its gorgeous colorings. This bold stone works wonders for those who are shy and quiet and wish to become more outspoken and confident.

Just like an encouraging friend, Fire Opal will guide you and provide you with the supportive energy you need to tackle a new beginning. If you’re feeling off-centered due to a change in your life, you can use Fire Opal to help you balance your energy and give you the courage you need in your new beginning. And if you are moving on from a past filled with negative memories, Fire Opal will help you to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

You’ll feel love, encouragement and confidence when you have Fire Opal on your side.

4. Amethyst | Stability, Balance & Protection

ChakraCrownThird Eye

Stone summary: Amethyst is a highly popular, deep purple stone, known to allow its user to achieve a higher-self and access positive transformation.

This highly powerful crystal works with your Crown and Third Eye to help you access your higher-self. (It’s often helpful to align your lower Chakras first before you use Amethyst on your upper Chakras.)

In terms of new beginnings, Amethyst will help you feel a sense of balance. Have you ever tried to stand on one leg while closing your eyes? It’s hard. But that’s exactly how new beginnings can feel sometimes; like we’re trying to balance on one leg with our eyes closed. We feel wobbly, unsure, and it takes immense strength to stay balanced.

Amethyst helps rid you of the “wobbles.” It keeps you balanced, and when you’re balanced, you’ll be better equipped to handle stressful situations.

Amethyst will calm and heal your mind and protect you for any change or new beginning you have coming your way.

5. Amazonite | Balancing, Truth & Healing

Green stone

How to use this stone: Keep this stone with you, especially during stressful times


Stone summary: When a transition is coming your way and your mind is feeling anything but steady, Amazonite will help you to stay focussed. One unique aspect of Amazonite is that it will help you learn to embrace and resist the right elements in your life.

Embracing change is important, especially when it comes to new beginnings. So, it makes sense that Amazonite is one of the best crystals for new beginnings if you are resisting change that’s hurling your way.

Often with changes, we resist them because we feel scared, nervous or unsure, but Amazonite will allow us to embrace positive changes with open arms.

With Amazonite by your side, you’ll feel balanced and will be able to accomplish tasks with a “can-do” attitude.

6. Citrine | Imagination, Success & Manifestation

Orange and white polished gemstone

How to use this stone: Repeat a mantra while holding Citrine in your palms

Chakra: Solar Plexus

Stone summary: Known as the “light maker” with similarities to our sun, Citrine is here to awaken your soul and give you the energy you need to remain positive in stressful changes. Because of this, Citrine is one of our top crystals for new beginnings, specifically, New Year resolutions.

Let me know if your New Year resolutions are anything like mine: you excitedly make plans to become a rockstar once January 1 hits. The first few weeks, you’re making waves. Reaching your goals. Kicking ass. But then, your steam fizzles out and next thing you know it’s December 1 and you’ve forgotten all about your “New Year, New Me” mantra.

Listen, we get it. By the time February hits, perhaps your New Year resolutions are long forgotten. But if you incorporate Citrine into your routine, you can tackle new beginnings and resolutions with more gusto.

If you’re starting a new project, whether it be a business or a new hobby that you need some extra gusto, Citrine will be able to motivate you to reach your goals.

As Citrine is commonly referred to as the “Merchant’s Stone”, it is a wonderful stone for entrepreneurs, and anyone who wants to achieve big goals. Incorporate Citrine into your meditation to manifest great success, positivity and overall optimism into your life and business ventures.

And, say goodbye to those half-baked New Year resolutions ?

7. Clear Quartz

How to use this stone: Hold in your left hand while meditating


Stone summary: Clear Quartz is one of the most popular healing crystals. Its versatility is why it’s one of our favorite crystals for beginners. Clear Quartz will help amplify any positive feelings you may have, which can be very useful for new beginnings.

Often times, when we are approaching new beginnings, we go from feeling really excited to sick to our stomachs over the upcoming change.

When you feel good, you’ll want to grab Clear Quartz to amplify that positive energy so it carries you through.

One of the healing properties of Clear Quartz is to clear a foggy mind. If you’re feeling unsure or you’re unable to think clearly, use your Clear Quartz crystals to open your mind and dispel the fog.
