10 Powerful Gemstone Combinations | Crystal Pairs That Work Magic Together

Last Updated on

Crystals are full of potent healing energy.

They are powerful by themselves, but what happens when you start combining two gemstones together?

If you pair them right, you’ll get a mix of harmonious energies that can amplify each of the crystals’ healing properties. Let’s say you need a crystal to aid your creativity and to help your anxiety. You can then pair two compatible gemstones together to get the best of both worlds! 

In this article, we are going to cover 10 powerful crystal combinations to take your crystal healing to the next level. 

10 crystal combinations

1. Ruby and Emerald 


Both Emerald and Ruby are considered to be “royal gemstones” as they have been the choice of royal families for centuries. Ruby is known to promote love, health, and nurturing energy.

Emerald connects deeply with your Heart Chakra, and it enhances happiness and fulfillment.

Together, you have two stones that can help bring more loving energy into your life. 

This is an ideal crystal combination for lovers or friends. It even makes for a cute gift if one person wears Emerald and the other Ruby, so that when you’re together the gemstones can enhance the harmony within your partnership. 


These two combined can also bring you closer in your relationship to the divine. Emerald especially holds a deep connection with spirit, and Ruby can amplify the magical energies that Emerald exudes.

From an astrological standpoint, Ruby is connected with the Sun and Emerald is connected with the planet Mercury.

Both of these planets in astrology share a nice, friendly bond which contributes to how well Ruby and Emerald work together. 

2. Amethyst and Citrine 

Amethyst and Citrine are a wonderful combination that complement each other well. We even see on rare occasions Amethyst and Citrine found together in the mine, which results in a gorgeous purple and orange crystal named “Ametrine”.

These two are so compatible that even Mother Earth allows them to form together—how cool is that! 

Citrine is a wonderful crystal for manifesting and bringing forward blessings of abundance. Amethyst has an entire list of healing benefits; some of these include dispelling fear, anxiety, and rage.

This crystal can also enhance your intuition and activate your spiritual awareness.

Citrine complements Amethyst by swooping in and also replacing the fear or anxiety with thoughts of optimism and joy. If you need help creating or manifesting, Amethyst is great for opening your imagination and improves mental processes.

Citrine is ruled by Jupiter while Amethyst is ruled by Saturn, these planets are neither enemies nor best friends.

They share a neutral relationship which allows Citrine and Amethyst to do the same. 

3. Lapis Lazuli and Onyx

Together, Lapis Lazuli and Onyx are a powerful gemstone combination. Lapis Lazuli rules over the Throat Chakra which governs our ability to speak our truth with authenticity and confidence.

Onyx promotes stamina, enhances self-control, and helps with decision-making. This crystal combination will bring you wisdom and a greater ability to speak your mind, which is ideal especially when you have a big speech coming up or simply need help standing up to someone. 

This gemstone combination can also bring you structure which is needed to keep both our life and the life we share with others running smoothly.

Lapis Lazuli and Onyx can bring you closer with the people around you and may even keep the conversation flowing. Both gemstones are also full of energy that enhances our relationships and friendships. 


Work with these gemstones the next time you and your partner start to feel depleted; they will restore the vitality in the relationship and encourage both of you to express your feelings free of judgment or anger. Lapis Lazuli is ruled by Jupiter, and Onyx is ruled by Saturn, just like Amethyst and Citrine. This means that the energy is compatible and have no issues working alongside one another. 

4. Carnelian and Aquamarine 

Orange crystal stone

Besides these two stones looking great next to each other, their energy is another reason to love this crystal combination. Carnelian is a fiery stone full of passion and motivation.

Aquamarine has more peaceful and serene energy to it, which takes the edge off of the intensity of Carnelian. 

Carnelian is great for stimulating the mind especially surrounding creative pursuits.

It can increase productivity and enhance your concentration. Aquamarine works to reduce the chatter in our minds and help alleviate feelings of anxiety.

This crystal can also bring you clarity and sharpen your mind, which is great since Carnelian will bring you an overflow of ideas. The ideas given to you by Carnelian can be sorted through by Aquamarine. 

Carnelian is ruled by Mars, and Aquamarine is ruled by the planet Neptune. In astrology, this combination can prove to be a work in progress, but the energies balance each other out.

Mars needs the softness of Neptune to bring it back to reality sometimes, which is the same with Carnelian and Aquamarine. These stones work well with those who have either of these ruling planets in their chart too. 

5. Selenite and Moonstone 

Selenite is a crystal full of white light and positivity. While Selenite can pair with any gemstone, but one of the most powerful gemstone combinations is Moonstone.

Before diving into the compatibility of these two stones, let’s learn a bit more about Selenite. This stone (besides Clear Quartz) is the only crystal that can cleanse and purify other stones.

This is why Selenite can pair with any gemstones, but for the purposes of the article, we will focus on the relationship between Selenite and Moonstone! 

Moonstone holds certain ethereal energy that connects you deeper to your spiritual nature. It embodies the feminine energy of the moon, making it a crystal that encourages your inner strength and growth.

When you combine the pure angelic energy of Selenite and the intuitive energy of Moonstone, you get a harmonious balance that will connect you deeper with your higher self and fight through thoughts of the ego. 

This combination is especially useful if you are starting a new chapter within your life or simply need some divine guidance. Use Moonstone and Selenite when you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed.

Also, pair Selenite with any gemstone to purify the energy and amplify the healing properties. 

6. Moss Agate and Fuchsite 

When you’re feeling stuck in life or need that extra push to make a decision, the combination of Moss Agate and Fuchsite can help you do just that. Moss Agate helps with overwhelming emotions and brings about a sense of tranquility. Fuchsite works similarly, but instead, it will remove the blockages that are causing the intense emotions and will try and take the weight off of your shoulders.

Both of these stones work to bring you a new perspective of life whenever it’s needed and can help you figure out your next step when you aren’t sure where to go. This powerful gemstones combination brings about a sense of child-like wonder and even helps heal your inner child.

Moss Agate and Fuchsite will allow you to feel more playful and bring about feelings of happiness and joy. 

If you ever find yourself in a time when you need more positive energy or light-heartedness in your life, find yourself some Moss Agate and Fuchsite. Together, they make a great combination to help you feel more optimistic and excited about life. 

7. Rose Quartz and Pink Tourmaline 

Pink Tourmaline

If love is on your mind, look no further than the gemstone combination of Rose Quartz and Pink Tourmaline.

This gemstone combination is another that be found within the same mines, meaning that they are destined to have a harmonious relationship.

Pink Tourmaline is great for those who have just gone through heartbreak or another type of loss. It allows you to view whatever is weighing you down in another light and find peace within yourself.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is seen as the universal crystal for love.

It can instill you with more feelings of self-love and restore the trust between you and your partner (or even just the trust you have for yourself).

Together, Rose Quartz and Pink Tourmaline will heal you and your relationships.

It doesn’t stop at romantic love, it can help repair any relationship with friends, family, and even colleagues. 

Both of these gemstones are amazing to use during periods of grieving a loss as well. It will help lessen the overwhelming emotions and try and bring you a greater sense of peace.

From an astrological standpoint, both of these gemstones are ruled by Venus, which means there are no other planets that could potentially make the connection hard. 

8. Black Tourmaline and Fire Agate 

Need a combination to repel negative energy and ground you in the darker moments? Fire Agate and Black Tourmaline together can do just that.

Black Tourmaline

These gemstones on their own are two of the best crystals for protecting your precious energy from negative or unwanted energies. Those who wish you ill will or throw negative intentions your way are no match for this powerful gemstone combination. 

Black Tourmaline, like most black crystals, are great for protection and keeping you safe from energy vampires. Fire Agate does the same, but it also stimulates your sexual energy and increases your vitality.

This crystal will also develop your personal strength and may even influence you to make “riskier” choices; meaning it will give you the confidence to not always take the safe route and allow you to take a risk every once in a while. 

Another quality regarding Black Tourmaline besides its ability to protect, it is also a purification stone. Keeping a piece will ensure that negative energy can’t even get into your auric field as it will automatically block and purify you or your space to help keep it clear.

Red stone.

Mercury is the ruling planet of Fire Agate, and Venus (also Jupiter) is the ruling planet of Black Tourmaline. This is a favorable union that works very well with each other. 

9. Smokey Quartz and Black Obsidian 

Smokey Quartz and Black Obsidian is an ideal pair for those who struggle with anxiety or releasing negative habits or attachments. Black Obsidian is another highly protective and grounding stone. It’s used to release any pent-up negative energy and emotions, and it can even remove blockages that cause negative emotions to harvest.

Smoky Quartz

Smokey Quartz is all about alleviating fear-based thoughts and anxiety.

It’s the perfect stone to bring you a sense of inner calmness and promote happier and more positive thoughts. For those that struggle with negative self-talk, the combination between Smokey Quartz and Black Obsidian is the ideal pair for helping overcome this.

This powerful gemstone combination works together to make you feel better about the life you’re living. It will allow you to accept the things beyond your control and bring you more peace whenever your anxiety starts to get the best of you.

Work with Smokey Quartz and Black Obsidian when you need a “pick me up” and allow it to remove the negativity that’s holding you back from fully thriving. 

10. Red Jasper and Green Aventurine 

Red Jasper

The last powerful gemstone combination we’re going to cover in this article is Red Jasper and Green Aventurine. These two crystals are great because they both encourage you to take back your power and truly create a life worth living. 

Green Aventurine is connected to the Heart Chakra, so not only does this stone speak of love but it also provides strength, courage, and happiness.

Red Jasper is known as the stone of empowerment and is deeply connected to your ability to overcome any sort of bullying or unfairness.

This is especially true if you are in an abusive relationship or friendship. 

Besides that, this combination also serves well for those starting a business or simply need more confidence in their plans.

Green Aventurine is also connected with matters of finance and abundance, and when combined with the confidence of Red Jasper, you will have no problems feeling confident in your business ventures.

Use Red Jasper and Green Aventurine to manifest more prosperity, confidence, and courage into your life. 

Bad crystal combinations

If you combine crystals, it’s worth learning about bad gemstone combinations, as not all crystals complement one another.

I’ve already written a comprehensive article about healing crystals that conflict—which you should read since I’ll only be doing a high-level overview in this section.

Combining gemstones can give you a boost of healing properties, but sometimes, using too many crystals, or pairing the wrong crystals together, can lead to undesirable outcomes.

While nothing bad will happen, you just won’t feel the full effects of your crystal pairings if you’re combining conflicting crystals.

Now, here’s the most important thing when you combine crystals: you must set your intention. If you don’t set your intention, your crystals won’t work as well together. For example, let’s say you want to use crystals to ease anxiety.

Grounding stones, like Hematite, can help you feel grounded, especially when you’re feeling anxious. However, an energizing stone, like Orange Calcite, will raise your vibrations and give you a boost of energy.

Now, if you’re using your crystals to calm your anxiety, pairing Orange Calcite with Hematite won’t work. These two stones conflict IF you’re intention is to reduce anxiety. Orange Calcite will raise your vibrations while Hematite will try to ground you. It’s essential to set your intentions (we’ll talk about how to set intentions later on).

Now let’s look at a different intention. If you’re feeling lazy and need a little motivation to help you check items off your to-do list, Orange Calcite and Hematite are a fantastic combination to do that.

Both stones help you overcome mental roadblocks and give you subtle energy to complete tasks. This is why it’s essential to set your intentions when using your crystals.

Imagine going to a chiropractor and not telling them what’s wrong. They’ll try their best to make you feel better, but if you don’t tell them what part of your body is in pain, they won’t be able to direct their attention to that specific body part.

Now imagine going to a chiropractor and telling them your neck is sore. They’ll spend time working on your neck and helping you feel better.

Your crystals are similar; they need direction so they know what part of your life to work on, otherwise, they’ll just try their best to help you out but they won’t be as effective.

To set your intention, you can just hold your crystals in your hand and say out loud what you need from them. It’s that simple!

Combining healing crystals

Using the above crystal combinations can give you powerful results. If you notice the combinations don’t work well for you, simply try another combination until you find the perfect combo!
