8 Crystals for Self-Confidence

If you need a little more confidence and self-love, these crystals—like rose quartz, carnelian, and black tourmaline—will help boost your personal happiness.

We all go through times of negative thoughts or negative energies. And whether you believe that crystals work for manifestation, or you just want something to believe in, crystals do have healing properties. Here, we’ll go over the crystals that are said to spread the most love, support, and positivity. Cast away negativity and boost self-confidence with these beautiful stones. 

One of the best ways to figure out which crystal will have the best effect on you is to utilize your birth chart. The moon sign is where self-worth (and self-love) stems from. So, determine your moon sign, and pick the crystal that resonates best with that zodiac sign. 

Black Tourmaline

Healing Properties: banishing negative thoughts, overcoming depression

Zodiac Sign: Libra

This black stone is the ultimate tool for overcoming depressive thoughts or symptoms. When you feel like you’re getting into a downward spiral and need a quick recovery, black tourmaline has your back. Wear it as a necklace or place one on your work desk. Another use for this stone is to help overcome toxic relationships—with others and yourself.


Healing Properties: positivity, joy, happiness

Zodiac Sign: Leo

Citrine brings the sun wherever it goes. Ultimately, it’s supposed to help you channel sunnier views to your day-to-day life. So, it’s the best choice for when you’re feeling depressed or needing a pick-me-up. This crystal also doubles as a money-maker! Place one in your wallet for a little extra dose of cash flow. 

Bumblebee Jasper

Healing Properties: courage, energy, vitality

Zodiac Sign: Leo

This unique crystal is as fun to look at as it is to use. Whenever you’re feeling like you aren’t good enough for something (or someone), bumblebee jasper will prove you wrong at every corner. Use it to pump yourself up before a big meeting or presentation by wearing it around your wrist.

Rose Quartz

Healing Properties: confidence, self-love, peace 

Zodiac Sign: Taurus

This pretty pink stone is a tried-and-true stone of love. It helps encourage more love in your relationship as well as more love with yourself. So, if you feel that your lack of confidence stems from a lack of self-love, rose quartz is the way to go. You can easily wear it as a necklace or as earrings!

Healing Properties: self-assurance, sexuality, life, emotional support

Zodiac Sign: Virgo

Carnelian is that stone you wear or hold when you’re in need of a serious pep talk before the day. It would be the best crystal to choose before you present something in front of a crowd, voice your ideas, or engage in a competitive atmosphere. It also helps channel rage or anger into determination.

Tiger’s Eye

Healing Properties: overcome fear, prosperity, success

Zodiac Sign: Leo

“The eye of the tiger” is captivated by this beautiful stone. Tiger’s eye helps you find courage in times when you experience fear and doubt. So, it’s the best crystal to wear when you’re standing up for yourself or proving yourself to someone else. One way to hone in on its properties is to use a tiger’s eye worry stone.


Healing Properties: peace, self-love, grounding, overcoming a breakup

Zodiac Sign: Taurus

Rhodonite is best used when you’re feeling depressed over the loss of a relationship. The basic sense around this crystal is that it’s used to help ground us when we’re going through emotional upheaval or trauma. So, if your confidence levels are really low, rhodonite is a good place to start.


Healing Properties: healing, sexuality, power

Zodiac Sign: Capricorn

Feeling less confident in the bedroom these days? Whether your lack of self-confidence comes from body issues or prowess, garnet can help wipe all of that away. Wear this gem as a necklace to keep on your body all night long and take things to the next level.
