Known for being perfectionists, Virgos can come off as uptight and stubborn. At the same time, this makes them hardworking, practical with strong endurance and a sense of great organisation. Here are the five best crystals to compliment the Virgo’s strengths
Born between 22 August to 22 September, Virgos are represented by the maiden and ruled by the planet mercury. They are highly intelligent and organised people renowned for their practicality, sensibility and hardworking nature. Virgos are loyal, well-grounded, committed and strive for perfection in everything they do. They are kind, supportive and reliable people who will always show up when you need them. Virgos are super creative and enjoy immersing themselves in creative outlets such as art, music, dancing, writing or crafts.
On the flip side, Virgos struggle with traits considered to be hypercritical, unforgiving and stubborn. Their desire for perfection can make them demanding, fussy or judgmental. Because they are so committed to their ideas, they can be inflexible or struggle to modify their ways. Despite being great communicators, Virgos often wrestle with expressing their true feelings.
Healing crystals can strengthen Virgo’s positive traits and balance their negative ones, especially during Virgo season. Even if your sign isn’t Virgo, these crystals will help you work with the sign’s energies. This season brings themes of organisation, logic and practicality. It makes a good time to get organised, refine routines and tackle detail-oriented goals. Here are five of the best crystals to work with Virgo energy.
Amazonite inspires honesty, honour and integrity, and is considered a stone of courage, communication and truth. This throat and heart chakra stone is said to improve self-expression and empowers one to speak their truth from the heart. Its soothing vibration calms anger, resentment and jealousy while clearing blockages from the heart space. Amazonite boosts self-esteem, raises emotional confidence and helps you release fears and anxieties, especially around love and relationships. The stone supports systematic Virgo with their own resistances allowing them to be more open-minded, go with the flow and express themselves truthfully.
How: Hold the amazonite at the heart or throat chakra to release blockages around self-love or self-expression.
Unakite is made of a combination of epidote and feldspar, and represents rebirth, heart-healing and grounding. Considered a form of granite, this green and pink stone has both colours of the heart chakra making it one of the strongest stones to work with heart energies. It also boosts self-confidence, encourages self-love and calms turbulent emotions. This strengthening stone builds emotional resilience making it great for empaths to counteract overwhelming feelings or sadness. It encourages the stubborn and unrelenting Virgos to be more understanding, patient and empathetic to others.
How: Hold the unakite at the heart chakra level, meditate by imagining a warm pink light of nourishing energy surround your heart centre and clear away negative emotions.

Moss agate is known as a stone of growth, abundance and expansion. It attracts new opportunities and new beginnings, making it a great stone for manifestation. Moss agate is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, boost the immune system and balance circulation in the physical body. It calms mood swings, promotes grounding, teaches patience and inspires optimism. This earthy green stone is also known as the gardener’s stone and is believed to help gardeners build a deeper connection with nature and their plants. As Virgos tend to be overthinkers they often struggle to relax. Moss Agate reassures hardworking Virgos that it’s okay to slow down, take a step back and recharge.
How: If you are feeling disconnected in general, take a piece of moss agate with you in nature. Place the stone on the soil. Then, hold your hands over it and imagine earth’s nourishing energies flowing through the stone into your body via a green light. Place it near your plants to stimulate healthy growth.
Known as the genius stone, rainbow fluorite is believed to increase creativity, improve concentration and spark inspiration. This multicoloured stone clears mental fog, calms stress and promotes quick-thinking, making it an excellent ally for study, work and general productivity. It strengthens your energy field and filters electromagnetic pollution from electrical devices such as TV’s, computers and cellphones. Rainbow fluorite increases intuition, sharpens awareness and helps you detect energy vampires – which are negative influences or manipulation that could be draining you.
Virgos can be too serious and often burden themselves with their own high standards and responsibilities. Rainbow fluorite helps them remain focused while supporting a balance between logic and creativity.
How: Keep a piece on your desk at work to filter distractions and improve focus. Carry it with you to protect against bad vibes and toxic people.
Red jasper is a stone of strength, passion and creativity. As a sacral and root chakra stone that promotes grounding, it strengthens feelings of safety, security and stability by stabilising the mood and encouraging responsility. Its earthy energy helps you feel centred and balanced while stimulating confidence and determination towards your goals. Since Virgos tend to be overly critical and hold themselves to a high standard, they are naturally their own harshest critics. Red jasper restores Virgo’s confidence in their abilities, inspiring faith, resilience and persistence.
How: If you’re feeling sluggish or lacking motivation, carry red jasper with you. Keep it close to your lower chakras.
