Two crystal points sit on moss next to a tree. One is yellow the other is a clear quartz crystal.

There is nothing quite as magical as the shifting of seasons; and one of the most enchanting of transitions is that of the warm, humid days that transform into the crisp, foggy autumn mornings lined with rainbows of falling leaves. (And if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, the season of Pumpkin Spice is upon us!)

What better way to celebrate this, our most Halloween-filled and witchy season than with all the most magical, autumnal crystals we can find?

Since crystals are great for manifesting our intentions and heightening our vibes, there is no better time to bring them into our lives. Energy drops as we get closer to wintertime, so if we prepare now with these fall beauties - we’re sure to make the most of this magical season.

If you want to infuse the most mystical energy into your upcoming fall season, this guide will direct you toward the most perfect crystals to surround yourself with.

Our Favorite Autumn Uses for Crystals

2. Fall Redecoration: Fall is the perfect time to change the energy of your living space (in a feng shui sorta way). Use these crystals as an accent and inspiration for your new living space flow. Get inspired by the colors, put your crystal next to your bed, move that bed, and decorate for Halloween with the bold orange and black colors these crystals inspire.

The Best Crystals for Autumn

By now, you may know that crystals can assist with a variety of issues, whether clearing negative energy, infusing positive energy, or even attracting love. As crystals come from the Earth, they vibrate and resonate with the energy of Mother Nature.

Additionally, certain crystals seem to glow harder and shine brighter in certain seasons. If you’re ready to embrace the changing leaves and slow transition out of summer, here are the best crystals for you to have during autumn.

Take our quiz: Which Crystal is the Key to Your Success?

Orange carnelian crystals in a big pile.

1. Carnelian

This crystal possesses the orangey-pink hues of a fallen leaf on the chilly ground. Carnelian is associated with the Sacral chakra, and it promotes confidence as the season’s change.

It is particularly helpful during autumn because it is associated with past life work and the renewal of reincarnation - ideas and energies that are especially prevalent near the Autumn Equinox. Carry a small piece of carnelian in your left pocket to promote self-assurance during the transition.

2. Amethyst

The veils between this realm and others are thin this time of year, amethyst is a must-have to help you hear the messages and wisdom from beyond. This stone comes in varieties of purple and assists with both emotional and physical imbalances—it is particularly helpful in reducing addictive tendencies.

Amethyst also lessens the grief associated with loss, which can be reignited this time of year as the realms move closer together. Keep a piece of amethyst on your altar to connect you to the wisdom of the past, present, and future.

3. Citrine

Citrine is a great stone to keep around all year. It is a stone of luck and wealth, and it encourages and attracts abundance. Citrine is especially helpful when it comes to reducing or eliminating negativity. Citrine is so powerful in this manner that it is one of the only stones that never truly needs to be cleansed.

This crystal’s positive properties can be extremely useful as the days become shorter and the nights grow longer - especially for those who suffer from seasonal affective disorder. Think of citrine as a little drop of sunshine in your pocket.

4. Hematite

Hematite is another excellent stone for reducing negativity, but it is also grounding and helps you feel rooted in the Earth. This stone promotes balance, a trait that can really come in handy when it feels like the world is changing around you.

Hematite works to reflect the upcoming darkness of the winter months.

5. Moss Agate

Moss agate not only looks like a stone you would find on the forest floor during a cool, autumn morning, but it also represents new beginnings. This is the perfect stone to use during a transformational time like the changing of the seasons. Moss agate helps us feel less sensitive and more objective.

Like citrine, this stone attracts wealth and abundance and increases self-assurance. Moss agate represents the fertility of plants, an energy that perfectly balances the dying leaves of autumn.

Another stone for any season, labradorite brings magic and increases intuition. This crystal can be especially powerful for Moon rituals. Labradorite helps you foster creativity and boosts your ability to persevere in difficult situations. This is a stone of change, assisting in the changing energies of the shifting seasons.

Labradorite increases psychic ability, boosting clairvoyance, and any form of divination.

7. Green Aventurine

Aventurine is associated with the Heart chakra and will clear any blocked energy within it. This stone boosts the metabolism, which can be especially helpful during the rich holiday meals. Aventurine reduces anger and irritable moods while offering a different perspective to those who work with it.

This crystal increases creativity and encourages an objective point of view.

Making the Most of the Season

While the crystals listed in this guide may be particularly useful during the fall, any of the crystals in your collection can be amplified by autumnal energy. Try cleansing your crystals in an earthen Moon bath by burying them in the soil underneath the moonlight overnight (try to aim for a Full Moon or New Moon for the most powerful energy). This will give your crystal collection a chance to soak in the energy of fall.
