With the arrival of March comes a shifting of seasons, and the transition to Autumn here in Australia calls for relaxing, protective crystals to help lift our spirits as the days grow cooler and shorter. If you’re looking for a gift for a March birthday, yourself, or anyone special to you this month, we’ve handpicked the best crystals to encourage gentle metamorphism and celebrate Mother Nature’s ever-changing beauty.
Citrine: For energy, creativity and comfort
Shining bright in warm autumnal yellows, citrine is thought to carry the power of the sun. Encouraging energy, creativity and comfort, it is particularly beneficial at this time of year when the temperature drops and the sun starts setting earlier. Citrine transforms negative thoughts, feelings and energy, bringing a positive outlook for the season ahead.
Labradorite: For intuition and protection against negativityMystical, iridescent labradorite is a stone of magic and transformation, and the way that it shifts and changes in the light physically represents this transitional time of year perfectly. Spiritually, it is a useful companion through change, bestowing strength and perseverance, and offering protection against negativity and misfortune.
Carnelian: For courage and taking actionThe vibrant burnt orange hues of carnelian emulate the setting sun and the falling leaves of Autumn. Worn as amulets by ancient warriors to bring courage and a fiery inner strength, it also encourages creativity, confidence and taking action.
Amethyst: For stability, strength, and inner peace
A fitting gift for loved ones born this time of year, amethyst is the zodiac stone for Pisces (19th February to 20th March). It helps aid the sensitive side of the Pisces zodiac, calming and soothing the emotions and bringing strength. This powerfully healing crystal provides spiritual protection, balance and inner peace.
Aquamarine: For quieting the mind and calming the soul
Another thoughtful gift to celebrate a birthday this month is aquamarine, the birthstone for March. Known as ‘the stone of eternal youth and happiness’ we think it makes a pretty spectacular gift all year round! Harnessing the calming energy of the sea, the crisp icy blues of aquamarine quiet the mind and soothe the soul.
Smoky Quartz: For healing and grounding
With its earthy tones of autumn brown, smoky quartz is a powerfully grounding crystal. This very versatile healer will keep you calm and anchored as you navigate the changing energies of the shifting seasons.
