Roar! Leos are probably the fiercest sign in the Zodiac. They are bold and fearless but can be aggressive at times. To support this powerful sign, we’ve come up with the best Leo crystals to look out for.
Red Tiger’s Eye
You might know this rare brownish-red crystal as dragon’s eye. Did you know that they are typically heat-treated to get the reddish shade?
Commonly used as a tumbled stone, it’s perfect for rekindling Leo’s motivation and passion. It can help push you into doing the things that need to be done for that long-term project or to reach that goal.
Moreover, you can use it as a grounding stone when you feel like you’re all over the place. It brings you back to your connection with the earth and helps you to go on. That’s why it’s also known as a “survival stone.”
Blue Tiger’s Eye
Meanwhile, blue tiger’s eye is called hawk’s eye, falcon’s eye, or silicified crocidolite. Also, a variety of quartz, its main use is a protective stone against the “evil eye.” This is when someone stares or looks at you and somehow brings you bad luck.
As a versatile stone, it’s associated with the throat chakra, base, and sacral chakra. This is great for encouraging the Lion to hold on to their personal power and speak their own truth.
One of the best Leo crystals around, polished labradorite is mostly made up of feldspar. When you look at it closely, it looks like something’s twinkling with multiple colors inside, a phenomenon called the schiller effect. This happens as the tubular elements within interact with light.
As for its uses, it supports the third eye and throat chakra. Also, you’ll find it helpful as a protective stone against negative energy.
Another quality that makes it perfect for Leo is it can assist them in their journey towards self-discovery. Leos are typically outgoing so they may forget to look within to tap into their intuition and creativity. Remember Leo, real confidence comes from the inside.
Mostly found in Brazil and Madagascar, rutilated crystals or red schorl come with an interesting formation. Rutile or titanium dioxide can be seen as needle-like threads in the so-called angel’s hair quartz or golden rutilated crystal. These inclusions may be black, silver, or red-brown in color.
The primary use of rutilated crystal for Leo is its ability to intensify their thoughts. It’s a stone with a high energetic frequency.
Well, it suits this zodiac sign’s strong passion to help manifest the things they desire in life through their intentions. With this crystal, they’re able to be mentally aware of “shortcuts” towards their dreams— the easier and faster route.
However, they also need to take caution as it can make negative thoughts stronger as well.
By the way, this gemstone aligns well with the solar plexus chakra. So, it can bring Leo confidence when he or she’s feeling down.
Now, if zealous Leo needs a bit of calm and wants to feel grounded, black onyx can help. This elegant Chalcedony variety mostly comes as a solid black gemstone although you can find some with white stripes.
As a stone supporting the root chakra, it can give a sense of stability and security when this zodiac sign gets lost in the rabbit hole.
In addition, it can protect Leo against negative energy. Though many ancient cultures feared this stone as they believed there was a dark force within, this crystal is known to enhance emotional strength in times of stress, grief, or chaos.
It’s a powerful stone against perceived threats like nightmares. And it helps keep your head clear as you dig into your work.
