How to Use Crystals for Luck
Even those that believe in metaphysics the least tend to cling to the notion of luck, just in case there is something more to the way in which the universe conspires to afford us opportunity and good fortune.
We’d describe the pining for luck as being in a state of temporary dissatisfaction, one that the experiencer longs to be relinquished from. There are different ways of channeling more luck into one’s life; some use meditation, some use prayer, and others turn to energetically charged rocks found embedded in the Earth’s crust.
Crystals are high vibratory entities that form over thousands of years underground. They are charged energetically by the minerals and elements native to Earth, though there are some stones that came from outer space.
Because crystals vibrate much higher than a human being does, they are able to lift the frequency of the user to achieve more positive, enlightened states. The frequency of luck is considered a heightened vibration, which is why stones for luck are widely sought after.
A luck stone works best when kept in close proximity to its user. The kind of luck you are looking to attract will also be subjective to your individual life experience. For example, some people are looking to be lucky in love, whilst others could use some good luck coming their way in terms of a new career or pay increase.
It’s important that you find ways of incorporating your chosen good luck stone into your everyday life so that your crystal has ample opportunity to attune to your energy. You can adopt any of the following methods to do so:
- Make time for daily meditation, and when doing so hold your crystal in the palm of your hand. Have a clear intention for good luck in your mind’s eye as you meditate, and use visualization to project your desire into the crystal itself; this is a form of telepathy.
- Invest in crystal jewelry that you can wear on a daily basis. Gemstones make for great earrings, rings and necklace pendants.
- Physically place your good luck stone on the different chakra points of your body. Over time, the crystal will work to cleanse and re-energize your energy hubs and the results will become tangible in your external world.
- Place your crystal in the base of your daily water drinking glass, either at home or at your place of work. Alternatively, you can use a crystal water bottle. The stone will charge any water that it comes into contact with, and the benefits will be delivered throughout your body as you drink. Note that some crystals dissolve in water, so double check your stone’s properties prior to adopting this method.
- Place your stone next to your bed, or under your pillow as you sleep. Crystals work closely with the subconscious mind and it is easier for them to go deeper when the user is in a state of slumber.
- Keep your stone in your handbag, wallet or pocket day in and day out. You can also hang a crystal from the rearview mirror of your vehicle, though crystals for protection work best for this purpose.
The goal is to have your crystals for luck in as close proximity to your physical body as possible, as it is your auric field that needs to be energetically influenced in order for the experience of luck to manifest in your life.
Ancient civilizations knew the power of crystals, and the ways in which they were able to bring luck to individuals and groups. We are slowly but surely rediscovering the magic of these entities, and how they can be used as tools to generate a more amplified existence.
How to Cleanse Crystals
Luck comes naturally to crystals; it’s a high vibratory experience that they are easily able to facilitate, so long as the intentions of the user are in alignment. That being said, it’s always necessary to keep in mind that crystals are reading energy, and don’t have the ability to decipher between one human being and the next. They are vulnerable to the energies of any individual who picks them up and handles them physically.
For this reason, it’s important to make time to properly cleanse your crystals every so often. General standards suggests that once a month is sufficient, but avid crystal users sometimes cleanse weekly or even daily. There is no such thing as too much crystal cleansing.
We cleanse our crystals to rid them of any residual energies that may be lingering with less than optimum intentions. Since they are such personal tools, crystals should ideally not be handled by anyone other than the sole user, so avoid letting friends, family or children pick up your stones, even just to get a closer look, as they could be leaving their compromised energies behind.
Once a month or more, take time to implement any of the following crystal cleansing methods:
- Some crystals dissolve in water, and some don’t. Those that don’t can be cleansed using a saltwater solution (either from the ocean, or homemade). Simply submerge the crystals in the water and leave them there for a minimum of 24 hours.
- Those that don’t dissolve can also be cleansed using water in motion. Place each stone under running water for a minimum of 1 minute, and towel dry.
- On the night of the full moon, place your crystals in the moonlight and leave them out. Retrieve them the following morning after they have absorbed at least two hours of sunlight as well.
- Use sacred herbs or incense to smudge your crystals in smoke. The best scents include sandalwood, Palo Santo and any form of sage.
- Bury your stones in your garden and leave them there for anywhere between 24 to 48 hours.
We also recommend that any new crystal acquisitions are properly cleansed and recharged before being used. Crystals go through a lengthy mining and handling process before they are sold to a user, and they gather complex energies along the way. Clean them so that they are ready to attune to you, and only you!

19 Best Crystals for Luck
Malachite is a lucky stone and is particularly affiliated with the experience of abundance. This is a transformation stone, so malachite will seek to alter whatever area of your life you are experiencing stagnancy in.
It can also be a luck bringer to relationships; malachite facilitates loyalty and trust, especially in relationships that are already in existence.
Malachite works with the heart chakra. If you’re looking to connect more deeply with your own intuition, this can feel like a form of luck. It will pull you into alignment with the most authentic parts of yourself, and the ways that this affects your outward experience often mimics the essence of luck.
No list of lucky stones is complete without the addition of labradorite. This is one of the most aesthetically beautiful gemstones in the world, known for its alluring mossy green and blue facade that refracts the light of the rainbow.
Labradorite offers a major stroke of fortune to anyone who knows how to properly channel intent. It tends to bring luck through synchronicity, and often facilitates chance encounters that feel serendipitous.
This is a great stone for anyone feeling particularly stuck in life and in need of some dumb luck to push them forward. It offers flow and positive vibes. It also pushes away any negative influences that may be hindering your ability to let luck in; often, we don’t even know we have been doing this until the obstacles are removed by external forces.
3. Rose Quartz
At the forefront of the most common stones that bring good luck is that of trusty old rose quartz. This is an abundant Earth stone that is easily mined, thus it is also one of the most affordable crystals on the market.
Placing a piece of rose quartz in all four corners of your living room, or bedroom, can bring copious amounts of newfound luck to your life and existing relationships. Rose quartz is a heart centered stone that illuminates the experience of love, including love of self.
If you’ve been feeling unlucky in love, this is the stone for you. It is thought that the goddess of love, Venus, herself works directly with all manifestations of rose quartz on the planet. A gentle, yet effective co-creator.
We usually recommend citrine to any individuals suffering from anxiety or depression. It has dual abilities, and is one of the most powerful good luck stones native to Earth.
The reason for this is that citrine has the ability to work with both the internal and external worlds, simultaneously. It purifies the environments in which you spend most of your time, so that no contaminants are working to affect your judgement or physical body. It also works internally by harnessing the levels of self-esteem that a particular individual is able to harbor.
Sometimes we think it’s luck that we need, when really it’s just some old fashioned self confidence. The two go hand in hand, no matter which way you look at it.
Another way that we tend to block out luck as human beings is to live within our own false narratives and facades. The high vibration of luck can’t collide with anyone who is forcing a low vibratory existence day in, and day out.
Amazonite will call out all of your personas that are not in 100% integrity with your inner being. You see, it knows that your highest self wants nothing more than an abundance of good luck in your physical experience, and so you need to align with it so that it can deliver such a reality.
Amazonite is also a facilitator of more positive connections with those who share the planet. You’ll start attracting happy-go-lucky souls who guide you to embody the same.
6. Tiger’s Eye
Usually used as a stone of protection, tiger’s eye is also one of the most effective lucky crystals. Protection and luck do go hand in hand, so to speak, so it’s unsurprising that tiger’s eye is able to provide these properties even when one isn’t necessarily asking for good luck.
Tiger’s eye connects to your root chakra: the energy center that keeps you grounded to Earth and able to make the best possible decisions in all situations. Some perceive the arrival of this ability to be particularly lucky, but once you get into it you’ll see that it existed within you the entire time.
Tiger’s eye offers the energy of the tiger: confidence, willfulness and integrity. Those who walk through the world with an air of luck tend to embody these three characteristics without much effort.
It’s always astounding to us how many uses the crystal known as amethyst can bring to a single user. It’s thought of as a master healer: a universal stone with a foot in both worlds (physical and non-physical).
Amethyst is one of few crystals for luck with the ability to deliver luck in spirituality. It stimulates both the crown and third eye chakra simultaneously, allowing the user to connect to higher planes of consciousness.
You’ll be wide open to your own intuition, which is not a common experience for most. At the same time, there will be a clarity of mind that can’t help but work directly with the laws of attraction, bringing in all of your deepest desires as though it were some kind of manifestation game. The subconscious mind loves amethyst!
Very often, a person who feels they are lacking in luck will usually have some sort of energetic blockage occurring in their throat area. The thyroid is an energetic hub: one that rules the rest of the body.
Goldstone is considered to be a powerful healer of the throat and any throat related troubles. This includes thyroid disease, lymphatic issues and poor communication.
The most important thing that goldstone brings to a user is the ability to see light in any kind of dark. This is instrumental to anyone looking to experience more luck, as sometimes luck is there and you’re simply not able to see it.
Goldstone activates the root and sacral chakras.
Money, money, money: peridot is the stone for good luck and cash!
It’s no coincidence that peridot is as green as the money that it brings. Abundance and prosperity will creep their way into all avenues of your daily life.
This is also a stone of renewal, joy and growth. Since peridot is the closest relative to the diamond, it can be quite expensive to invest in a piece. Many say that peridot pays itself off over time, due to the amount of lucky wealth it brings to the user in question.
In addition to prosperity, peridot opens the heart. It brings a calmness of body and mind, fueled by the heart, that lets the user tap into their intuition without inhibiting thoughts.
10. Smokey Quartz
Smokey quartz is one of those good luck crystals that is best worn as jewelry. It works closely with the root chakra, and thus has a grounding effect on the user. In this way, smokey quartz will help you with making rational decisions and more logical choices.
The root chakra marks the first step in opening up your emotional body. If you have had this energy center closed off for a number of years, smokey quartz becomes an ally in unblocking and providing flow. The kundalini level of enlightenment is attainable with the help of smokey quartz.
If you frequently use a microwave or electronics, keep a piece of smokey quartz nearby so that it can pull the electromagnet pollutants from the environment instead of allowing them to be absorbed by you.
Moldavite is a rare stone that is thought to have arrived on Earth via a meteor that hit millions of years ago. It is deeply connected to extra-terrestrial beings, and offers transportive effects on anyone hoping to jump into different mental dimensions.
The unique composition of this gemstone is so highly vibratory that luck is magnetized to it without much effort. It is said to be the best stone for women who are seeking luck in fertility; this technique dates back to the Stone Ages.
Similarly, moldavite can counteract any experiences of bad luck. It will help to allow for true change to occur for the better. This is also a crystal concerned with synchronicity and serendipity.
Sometimes lack of luck is simply the presence of fear. If you’re a particularly fearful individual, luck will struggle to find its way into your direct experience. The two are simply so opposite in vibration.
Carnelian is the energy of fearlessness, courage and motivation. It works to help put the mind, body and spirit into alignment, knowing full well that, once they are, no fear can hinder the arrival of luck.
This is also a highly sexual stone. The energy is that of tantra, which is instrumental in facilitating the flow of all areas of everyday life. One way to bring more luck into your existence is to unblock the flow of sexuality.
13. Tourmalinated Quartz
Out of all stones for good luck, tourmalinated quartz is a double threat! It offers both the qualities of quartz and tourmaline, all fuzed together in one stone.
Quartz amplifies focus, while tourmaline transforms negative energy into positive. In this way, it is able to bring double the luck, as the internal and external worlds are both being affected.
Some opt to wear this crystal on their fingers as rings, as it is thought to bring a lucky flow of money. Alternatively, wear it close to your heart for purification of this energy center.
Tourmalinated quartz is considered to be a stone of yin-yang balance. It also offers some detoxification properties for the blood. In these ways, luck becomes a natural part of everyday life.
A lot of people are seeking luck with regards to their careers. Perhaps it is for a new work opportunity, or amplification of opportunities in an existing role.
Business and work relationships tend to improve when garnet is involved, as it also helps you connect and work with your team, which enhances your overall productivity and ability to make good impressions. If you are in the process of applying for a new job, use a piece of garnet in your daily meditation.
Garnet is both grounding and uplifting, which helps achieve a balanced mindset in the user. Courage and strength are accompanied by creativity; overall, you’ll feel like the luckiest person in town.
If you’re needing to release stagnant negative energies that have been contributing to an unhealthy state of mind, garnet will also help facilitate this.
Luck means that you are in vibration with the natural frequency of the Earth. In essence, it is our most natural state of existence. When luck is not present, it means that something has gone wrong.
Jade is able to draw abundance from nature so that you feel luck, prosperity and wellbeing in everything you do. Harmony is also something that jade seeks. This balance is directed into the mind, body and spirit so that the user realizes that they are a physical extension of nature, and have the ability to create their own reality.
Physically, jade is a naturally cold stone, so it has anti-inflammatory properties. Use it directly on red or inflamed skin; it’s your lucky day!
Fluorite is one crystal that is regularly made fake. Glass and dye make it easy to make realistic looking fluorite, and some retailers are maximizing their profits by selling replica stones. Always purchase fluorite from a reputable source, or opt for raw pieces when in doubt.
Fluorite brings luck by opening up all flows of energy through the physical body. It gets straight to work in unlocking any stagnant energies that are holding you back, even if they have been stuck for months or years.
Some also use fluorite as a form of protection against bad luck, which indirectly brings the essence of good luck into fruition. Because of this, fluorite needs to be cleansed quite regularly.
17. Clear Quartz
This is another stone that is very easy to fake because it looks identical to plain glass. Always purchase raw quartz when possible, or buy from reliable retailers who you know are selling genuine products.
Clear quartz is one of the most versatile stones on the planet. It can be used to amplify almost every positive experience available to humankind, including good luck. The reason it is able to do this is because it is a highly programmable stone, so sending intentions into it is easy even for beginners.
If physical pain is a problem, and is contributing to a lack of luck, then clear quartz can help reduce pain levels and create greater opportunity for positive experiences. Use it directly on the parts of the body that are experiencing the discomfort.
Pyrite is sometimes called fool’s gold: it is a known facilitator of one’s true path. If your path toward luck seems totally unrecognizable, then this is the crystal to use, as it will guide you intuitively.
When pyrite comes into physical contact with the skin, it has a direct effect on your ‘zest for life’. It inspires action and change, so that you feel motivated to get the ball rolling, even when it feels like you’ve been pulled down by bad luck for quite some time.
Pyrite is also an attractor of abundance and prosperity: two very lucky properties. Keep a small piece in your pocket or handbag or other places where money is usually expected to be found.
The sapphire gemstone is unique because most people believe it to only have aesthetically pleasing properties. However, in addition to being incredibly alluring, sapphires are actually able to bring wisdom, and recover lost wealth.
If your spell of bad luck is rooted in finance, sapphire can help bring things back into balance. If you feel you’ve been treated unfairly by another with regards to finances, sapphire will also work to bring peace to the situation.
You’re most likely to find sapphires in the form of jewelry. They don’t come cheap and one should be skeptical of any jewelry being sold for cheap; blue glass is sometimes used as a substitute.
