Discover 10 fresh crystals for Spring season and the Spring Equinox.Start the astrological new year on a high!Let these seasonal stones support you and connect you with the energy of the season and the current cycles of nature.
Where I live in the Northern Hemisphere, Winter is dark, cold and a little depressing sometimes. Spring gives us something to look forward to and the promise of warmer months ahead.
The plants and trees come back to life, flower buds form and nature seems to wake up. Here in the UK, we see flowers like Daffodils, Bluebells and Cherry Blossom trees around this time.
Spring Equinox, Holidays & Festivals
The Spring or Vernal Equinox is an astronomical alignment that marks the end of Winter and the beginning of the Spring season. It is a time when the day and night are almost equal in length.
There are a few holidays and festivals around this time of year, depending on where you live. Holi, Nowruz, Easter, Ostara, Earth Day, Spring Equinox, Flora, Beltane and May Day to name only a few. Many of these festivals date back thousands of years and across countries, cultures and religions.
The Spring Energy Shift
The Spring Equinox could be seen as one of four energetic gateways or portals. It marks a time of balance of light and dark, with a rapid increase in daylight. It is considered the astrological new year to many Astrologers. Common festive themes at this time are emerging out of Winter, the rebirth of nature, fertility, growth and new beginnings.
Your energy starts to increase as you shed off any Winter blues. You may start to spend more time outside again, getting needed sunshine and crisp fresh air. The stirrings of Spring and increased light bring us hope. The energy is building, clear and constantly moving.
If the Solar New Year wasn’t too good for you, now is your second chance. Many people prefer this as their new year. With the increased energy of nature, it becomes a good time to take action on the plans we set in the Winter months. Plant some new seeds and make a fresh start!
Another theme of this new cycle is detoxification and Spring cleaning. After all the Winter self-reflecting we are now ready to shed anything that was holding us back. Release any blocks and old energy lingering from last year.

10 Crystals For Spring
Serpentine comes in many shades of green, some stones also have veins. It can look a bit like snakeskin, snakes shed their skin and are associated with rebirth. This green stone is very detoxifying and helps clear the chakras. You can also work with Serpentine for personal transformation and making needed life changes.
Crystals carved into the shape of an egg are an excellent symbol of Spring. Eggs are an ancient symbol of fertility, new life and rebirth. They can be used to support any new project. Crystal Eggs anchor the energy of new beginnings and building a new life for yourself.
This is a form of Agate found in Madagascar that is not as easy to find as some of the other crystals. It is also known as Cherry Blossom Agate and Sakura Agate. Flower Agate is a mixture of light colours with blooming white or pink flower-like inclusions. This makes a beautiful mineral representation of the first signs of Spring.
This crystal carries the colours of nature and growth, luscious plant life, water and sky. Clear green, blue-green to opaque yellow Lemon Chrysoprase all assist us with new beginnings. Chrysoprase fosters change and helps you if you are ready to make a fresh start on something.
Crystals carved into Goddesses, especially earth and fertility Goddesses are also an ancient symbol of springtime. New life is born through women and nurturing feminine energy. These crystal carvings can represent this and the power of Mother Nature or Gaia.
Sodalite is deep blue to indigo with lighter or white veins that always remind me of lightning bolts. This air element stone helps clear old energy and supports you during space clearing. Work with Sodalite if you want to clear your mind. This dark blue stone helps you gain a higher perspective and gives you inspiration when needed.
This is another beautiful form of Agate. Moss Agate is filled with mineral inclusions that resemble green moss, plants and even trees. This organic looking gemstone connects you with nature and the living Earth. Moss Agate encourages inner and outer growth.
This pink form of Quartz is ever-popular. I chose it as one of my crystals for Spring because it is a stone of Mother Nature. Rose Quartz is a nurturing crystal that keeps you calm while taking steps towards your goals. The soft pink colour is also reminiscent of cherry blossom and spring flowers.
GREEN MAN CARVINGS
The Green Man is a mysterious recurring image in European Medieval churches and cathedrals. He is mostly believed to go back to pagan times and is associated with various Gods and archetypes of death and rebirth. He represents the divine masculine aspect of the new life in Spring.
This stone is blue-green to green and can be very light to deep in colour, depending on the source. Amazonite has a fresh colour and energy that reminds me of Spring. This crystal is good for balancing energy within the body and healing. I like to work with Amazonite for new beginnings too.
This is also known as Orbicular Jasper but it’s not actually Jasper but a mixture of Rhyolite with Quartz and Feldspar. It has lots of circular markings and can sometimes have druzy geodes. It is a mixture of colours that may include sandy earth tones, white and green. I’ve included it here because it is such a good stone for developing patience. Spring is the beginning of a new cycle and things can take time.
