Prosperity and abundance – who wouldn’t want to have more? Prosperity may mean different things to different people: comfort, security, wellbeing, success, wealth, health, or great relationships. The definition of prosperity includes not just wealth, but happiness and health and peace and love – what we all strive for in this life.
I’d like to share my top 5 crystals for more prosperity and abundance. IF you’re new to crystal healing energy, you can learn more about crystals and crystal healing here.
The first crystal for prosperity and abundance is Amethyst. Not only is it a favorite of mine because it’s my birthstone (February) but it is a general purpose stone and useful for so many things. I like it for prosperity because it’s a stone of success, change, being in the flow, and choices being made easier. Plus the gorgeous purple color is a show stopper. Check out some of the different types of amethyst like banded amethyst, black amethyst, and ametrine (amethyst-citrine combined).
Jade has been a lucky stone in China for thousands of years. It supports abundance, harmony and happiness in business and family relationships. We often see Buddhas made of jade with their smiling faces reminding us of the joy in life.
Jade also helps stimulate the flow of energy through the physical body and is a good stone for protection, balance, harmony and good luck – making it the perfect stone to wear as jewelry or keep a piece in your pocket. It’s been noted that the message of Jade is to “love and accept yourself” so if you’re having any challenges in this area, a piece of Jade might be just for you.
Green Aventurine is another beautiful green stone that symbolizes vitality, growth, confidence and hope. It is in the quartz family and can range in color from dark green to light green. As with other green stones, it works well to balance the heart chakra and to no surprise, helps with healing and moving forward in life. If I meet someone new to crystals and crystal healing, I always recommend they have green aventurine because it’s a great healer of many ailments and it’s all about vitality and prosperity and growth.
Emerald is another green healing stone and can be found inexpensively in its rough state so you don’t need to invest in an expensive emerald ring or pendant. I have a small piece in my Prosperity and Abundance grid pictured here. Emerald is primarily about love and compassion. It is definitely heart-centered yet also works well to encourage actions that lead to abundance, worthiness and wealth, in a very gentle way.
And the last of my top five for prosperity and abundance is Green Fluorite. I love it because it harmonizes the heart with the mind so that your thoughts, words and actions are aligned to your heart energy. “Lead with your heart”, or “what is your heart telling you to do” – are just of couple of things to keep in mind or say to yourself when making choices, especially important ones, and green fluorite helps support that.
Green fluorite is also helpful in clearing away mental confusion or mental fogginess. I like it as a prosperity and abundance stone because it provides order and structure to ideas, concepts and energies so that they become reality. In that way green flourite is great for creative types who may need support in bringing their creativity to existence.

I’ve always been fascinated by crystals, rocks, and minerals. As a child, I loved looking out the window of our car, as we drove by homes that had huge rocks and boulders in their yards, and dreaming of growing up to have my own rocks and boulders in my yard.
As I began to study and learn more about the topic, and have conversations to introduce people to crystal healing, I always mention the following main points because they’re very helpful in understanding the concept.
The use of crystals for healing purposes has been around for millennia, it’s not a new concept at all, or a “New Age” invention. Ancient civilizations used crystals to heal and enhance emotional, mental, physical and spiritual balance.
The blue stone lapis lazuli and other crystals have been used in burial rites and found in Egyptian tombs. Ancient Romans and Greeks intuitively knew that the energies of the stones interact with our human electromagnetic field to bring about changes, and used crystals to protect themselves in battle with amulets and talisman or by rubbing crushed crystals on their bodies, respectively. Many cultures including ancient Aztecs, Mayans, Native Americans, and Hindus used various crystals in healing rituals and for spiritual advancement.
Scientific discoveries over the past century are changing the way we think about the roles of crystals. Crystals are a critical component in communication, information storage, solar power and laser applications in industry. For example, quartz crystals are common in devices like cell phones, TV receivers, and watches and clocks.
A ruby crystal was part of the first laser developed in the early 1960s and laser-related advances in communications have provided a new means of transmitting large quantities of info over great distances via fiber-optic cables. And we’ve got liquid crystal displays (LCDs) in our TVs and computer monitors.
We’re seeing advancements in the field of medicine as well. While today’s science can’t always explain precisely why or how crystals and crystal healing work, those who have experienced healing after being treated with crystals can’t deny that there are real improvements in their emotional, mental and physical health.
Crystal healing is a type of vibrational therapy. Crystals have the ability to shift and alter the frequencies of other objects or bodies when they occupy the same space.
Everything vibrates at a certain frequency, including crystals and the human body – we call this vibration of an object its Dominant Oscillary Rate, or DOR. Because crystals are firm and geometrically perfect, compared to our bodies and the DOR of our bodies that are not geometrically perfect, crystals entrain, or oscillate, the energy that is put near them.
That’s the basis for how crystal healing works: crystals are placed near or on the body and the body will begin to oscillate, or vibrate, at the same frequency as that crystal. This new vibrational field affects the nervous system and stimulates biochemical shifts that impact physical health in a positive, healing way.
It increases coherence in the body, meaning that your heart, brain and other organs sync up. Have you ever felt out of sync, just not right? Or something stressful happens and it feels like you’ve been thrown off balance? That’s why people wear crystals or carry them in their pockets, to provide that harmonizing vibration all the time.
There are many other practical applications for the different varieties of crystals and crystal healing. You can meditate with crystals – holding them in your hands or placing on or near your body during meditation.
In addition to carrying or wearing crystals, they are used in crystal baths, crystal elixirs, for protection from electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure, and in crystal grids in homes and offices to transmute, protect and amplify energy.
Crystal grid on my desk
There’s a huge variety of crystals with over 4,500 types of minerals from mother earth and each crystal has different subtle energetic properties common to its geometric class, color, hardness level, different vibrational frequencies, and unique healing properties.
I create numerous crystal grids in my home and office, and by using a variety of crystals in these grids or in crystal body layouts for client sessions, benefit from each crystal’s unique properties that combine to amplify the energetic potential of the single crystal into a more potent healing tool.
