Using crystals for manifestation is a great way to amplify your intentions and speed up your results. I’ll go more into detail below, but keep in mind that using crystals to manifest is only a small portion of the manifestation process. It does take some work and rearranging on your end to see real results from your manifesting!
What is manifestation?
Manifestation is the process of co-creating with the universe. It takes conscious, aligned effort on our part and simultaneous, radical trust in the universe and something greater than ourselves.
I’m a believer in practical manifestation– a concept that came to me when thinking about all the things I *don’t* like about the spiritual & manifestation community.
This idea that our desires will come to us out of thin air or just after journaling a few pages in a notebook can be really misleading.
From my experience- manifestation requires a lot more than that.
To really transform our life and manifest in a way that sustains (instead of showing up as finding a random $20 bill, which is of course great but doesn’t really change your life) we have to get to the root of whats blocking us from living the life we desire.
Sometimes that means healing trauma, addressing bad habits, leaving toxic relationships or environments.
Only then do we see real sustainable, long-lasting and transformative manifestations come to life.
At that point- we can use things like visualization, money spells, or crystals for manifestation.
In this post I’ll be sharing some of my favorite crystals for manifestation and how to use them in a practical way.

How can we use crystals for manifestation?
When approaching the process of calling in and creating our desires, we can also use crystals for manifestation. This article will share some of my favorite crystals for manifesting and which ones to use for your specific intentions.
Some ways to use crystals for manifestation
You can add these crystals to a crystal grid that is programmed with a specific manifestation intention.
You can carry your manifestation crystal around in your pocket.
You can carry your manifestation crystal around in your purse or wallet.
Wear your manifestation crystal as jewelry.
You can take (some of these) in a crystal tincture.
You can wear some of these in a crystal spray or infused oil.
You can hold your crystal for manifestation in your palms during meditation.
You can place your manifestation crystal under your pillow while sleeping.
You can place your crystal on your desk or your place of work.
You can intentionally set them in and around your house.
Using Crystals for Manifestation Intentionally
It is important to note that we have to use crystals intentionally. Simply purchasing and storing or wearing them isn’t quite as powerful as actually placing mindful intentions into them before use.
You can do this by holding your crystal in between your palms and tuning into it’s energy. Notice how it feels- do you notice any heaviness, tingling, energy bursts?
Its good to cleanse your crystals before programming them with a specific intention.
To learn ways to do that check out this post: How to Cleanse Your Crystals.
Once you’ve cleansed and connected with your crystal- ask it to assist you in your manifestation process. Maybe you need assistance removing obstacles or attracting opportunities for you to say yes to- whatever it is, set your intention and ask your crystal to assist with that.
Throughout this process you may notice a feeling of incongruence or misalignment- it could be that the crystal you’ve chosen isn’t quite right for the assignment. If you experience this, try experimenting with different crystals until you get a discerning feeling of “yes, this is the one!”
Below you’ll find some practical uses and meanings of my favorite manifestation crystals.

Best Crystals for Manifestation
Citrine: attract abundance
Citrine is one of my top favorite crystals. It carries such a high and joyful vibration, perfect for manifestation. Citrine is known as the “merchants stone” and a stone of abundance with the ability to attract money and opportunity. It can also help with creativity which is an important energy to cultivate when we’re in the “taking action” phase of manifestation.
Aventurine: boost optimism & attract prosperity
Aventurine is a wonderful crystal to use for manifestation and one of the reasons is its ability to soothe and heal the heart chakra.
The heart chakra is our energetic center for receiving- so when we are doing the work and calling in our desires, having some support in this energy center is super beneficial.
Many times it can be hard for us to receive- especially for those of us who identify as empaths or healers… When we are used to over giving (maybe even on the edge of people-pleasing) it can create an imbalance in the heart chakra.
This makes it hard for us to actually receive what we want.
Using aventurine as a crystal for manifestation is a great idea. It’s also said to be a great stone for boosting confidence, attracting prosperity and bringing optimism to the mind.
Rose Quartz: manifest love
Rose quartz is one of the first crystals I started working with when I began my journey with crystal healing and manifestation.
Its pink, soft and loving energy is helpful in manifesting love. It helps a ton with boosting our ability to practice good self-love which of course affects our energy and makes us more receptive to love in general.
If you’re ever doing a crystal grid for manifestation or wanting to wear a soft and gentle energy in your jewelry, rose quartz is a great ally.
Clear Quartz: amplify intentions
Clear quartz is very cleansing and revitalizing. It’s also said to be an amplifier of our intentions. Clear quartz is one of those stones you can program to assist with almost anything, including manifestation.
It really supports spiritual growth, clearing, healing and amplifying our intuition.
When using clear quartz crystals for manifestation- its important to set your intentions and ask it to assist with whatever it is you’re manifesting.
You can also ask it to assist in the clearing process- removing anything that is not a vibrational match for the reality you desire.
Black Obsidian: clear manifestation blocks
When I was in fourth grade, we took a field trip to the Maidu (Niseanan) Museum. That experience greatly influenced the trajectory of my life and gave me access to perspectives and knowledge that I’m still grateful for today… I can elaborate on that in another post, but I mention it because this is where I was first introduced to black obsidian.
While browsing through the shop inside the museum, I came across a black obsidian spearhead and was captivated.
At the time, I didn’t know much about its properties, but I was intrigued nonetheless. I still have that little spearhead today and now I know much more about it than I did then!
Black obsidian is a great crystal to use in your manifestation process because it helps to clear blocks and protect you from negative energies that may influence your path.
If you feel like you’re constantly drained or foggy when trying to manifest- try using black obsidian to clear away those energies. You can also ask it to protect your manifestations and send away anything that is not supportive of your highest good.
Red Jasper: ground your manifestations
I added jasper to this list of crystals for manifestation because it’s really important to stay grounded.
When manifesting, it’s easy to try and operate from/ connect to the higher chakras… we talk about attraction and quantum leaping and the universe and abundance, but none of those things can be experienced without proper grounding in this (3D) reality.

Being grounded also relates to our ability to receive our manifestations in real time.
I recommend Jasper for that and also to assist in taking action on your goals.
Green Jade: attract luck & prosperity
Green Jade is another popular crystal for manifestation. Its widely used to attract luck, wealth and prosperity.
Green Jade is one of those stones that you’ll see used in feng shui a lot for this exact reason.
Its a great addition to your manifestation crystal collection.
Amethyst: amplify intuition and heal blocks
When choosing crystals for manifestation, I love to recommend amethyst for its ability to clear frantic energy and connect us to deep wisdom and intuition.
I love to sleep with amethyst under my pillow and use it as a tool help me remember my dreams (which is a great way to stay connected to your truth, heal on a deeper level, and strengthen your intuition).

Moonstone: manifest in alignment
When manifesting, it’s important to stay aligned with your truth. I find manifestation works a lot better when we are focused on things that actually connect to our purpose and our ability to thrive as our authentic selves.

Moonstone helps with that by keeping you aligned with your truth.
It’s also a great stone for balancing feminine energy which is the energy within us all that is responsible for keeping us in the flow and allowing us to receive our hearts desires.
Pyrite: attract luck, wealth & success
Pyrite is another well-known abundance stone. It attracts luck, wealth and success when used intentionally and practicing practical manifestation.
Pyrite is also known as “fools gold” and has the ability to strengthen your confidence and your willpower- both important manifestation qualities!
