Before we dive into the best stones and crystals for Libra, it helps to have a basic understanding of what the sign of Libra is.
For starters, it’s ruled by Venus, the planet of love – so Libra is interested in all things relationship, as well as beauty, pleasure, art and aesthetics. But don’t think that they are only interested in material or physical pleasure; Libras are also very peaceful and value balance and harmony above all else.
It’s a relationship-oriented sign, often placating others in order to avoid conflict (unlike its opposite, Aries). Libra does everything to maintain balance and justice.
As well as being ruled by Venus, Libra is also an air sign, with the air element associated with ideas, logic, communication, technology, and information. Libra applies all of these airy themes to their passion for peace, to make the world much more harmonious for everyone.
Libra’s strength lies in their ability to judge fairly, see all sides, communicate, and foster balance. She may, however, have difficulty maintaining boundaries, defending herself, and making decisions.
That said, when it comes to which stones and crystals are best suited for this sign, choose those that bring out the best qualities Libras already have, and those that offer something they may be lacking.
Stone #1: lapis lazuli
As we mentioned before, Libras can be a little indecisive because they are good at seeing all sides of a problem. Being fair and open-minded is a good thing, but not if it keeps you from moving forward! As such, lapis lazuli, which is known to support truth (both understanding it and telling it), can help Libras make decisions. Libra people are people who love totally, passionately, intensely and with integrity. They make perfect partners because it is very difficult to come into conflict with them. They are also open and available people. Libra is above all a tactful person and they don’t like domestic arguments, especially when it comes to outbursts of anger. They believe that everything can be resolved through dialogue. As such, lapis lazuli can facilitate communication, especially for the expression of opinions.
Stone #2: citrine
Citrine is the classic, cheerful, sunny crystal perfect for lifting your mood or making a cheerful first impression. It’s a stone of positivity and light, and most Libras you meet have that kind of energy.
Stone #3: labradorite
Again, Libras can be indecisive, and that means they may be spending too much time thinking. Labradorite stone can help them in this area. Keep it in mind when you have to make a big decision or when you need to clear your mind.
Stone #4: aquamarine
Aquamarine has so many benefits, including promoting self-acceptance and open-mindedness. Its blue color also links it to the throat chakra, which makes it excellent for Libras who want to communicate better.
Stone #5: moonstone
Moonstone allows you to live your purpose and your destiny. It is a powerful crystal to use to help you tap into your intuition and even your dreams. For Libras who doubt themselves and their own inner voice, moonstone can remind them to go for it and that they deserve the best.
Stone #6: sapphire
Sapphire is a beautiful blue stone with a rich history – and it happens to be the birthstone for all Libras born in September. This stone helps you have compassion, strengthen your best self, and keep fear-based thoughts at bay.
Stone #7 opal
Speaking of birthstones, if you’re a Libra born in October, your birthstone is opal – and it’s a terrific stone for your sign. Opal helps balance Libra’s natural inclination towards order and aesthetic beauty so they don’t get stuck in superficiality.
Stone #8: agate
Agate in its many forms is a good stone for Libras because it supports balance, justice, and truth. Also, what is nice about agate is that it comes in different varieties with distinct properties. Moss agate, for example, is linked to love and the heart chakra, while blue lace agate is linked to communication and the throat chakra.
Stone #9: pink quartz
To open the heart chakra and promote love and compassion, rose quartz is ideal. And any romantic Libra who wishes to increase love (towards others and/or themselves) can benefit from the benefits of this stone.
Stone #10. green aventurine
Green Aventurine is another crystal associated with the Heart Chakra, a favorite of Libra, as well as promoting good luck and abundance. Askinosie previously explained that working with this crystal teaches you to find opportunity in every situation and reminds you that luck awaits at every turn.
Stone #11: Turquoise
Turquoise is a stone of communication, and is even believed to be a bridge between heaven and earth. Turquoise can help you express yourself if you find it difficult to put your feelings or your point of view into words, which is something Libras can face when in conflict.
Stone #12: black tourmaline
Black tourmaline is associated with the sign of Libra, as well as Scorpio and Capricorn. People with these sun signs will find black tourmaline to be particularly supportive. As a stone of grounding, protection, and repelling negativity, black tourmaline is ideal for Libras in the face of conflict.
Stone #13: Obsidian
Obsidian is another stone that can come in handy in times of conflict. One particular variety, snowflake obsidian, is particularly suited to Libras, as it relates to balance and setting boundaries. It is good for reminding us to be in balance, but on a deeper level, it reminds us of balancing our inner duality and exploring our own shadow.
From turquoise to moonstone, there are plenty of stone options that will help Libras live their best lives. Of course, that’s not to say Libras can only work with the stones on this list, but they’ll be a great place to start.
