INSIDE: With a chakra stone set, you can achieve the health and wellbeing you desire. Read on to discover what these crystals can do for you, as well as different ways to use them.
Discovered through ancient Ayurvedic and Hindu teachings, chakras are energy points that manage the flow of energy in the body.
The word "chakra" translates from Sanskrit to “wheel,” alluding to the fact that these energy centers are constantly spinning. Each center is responsible for receiving and sending energy throughout the body.
There are a total of 7 main chakras (although there really are over 100), and all of them are located along the spine.
It is common for one or more of your chakras to be blocked or out of balance, which means they may be spinning too fast or too slow. This can result in a myriad of health issues related to the chakra.
In order to maintain a healthy flow of energy through each chakra, you can use a chakra stone set. In this article, we are going to discuss what crystal to use for each chakra, and how to get the most out of your set. Let’s dive in!
What Are the 7 Chakra Stones?
Each chakra has a certain stone associated with it, and we have selected 7 crystals in our chakra stone set that work to stabilize and balance each energy center.
1. Root Chakra - Red Jasper
Located at the base of the spine, the root chakra is associated with the color red and is responsible for your survival needs, such as safety and security.
When the root chakra is blocked or unbalanced, you may experience feelings of anxiety and flightiness, digestive issues, ovarian or prostate problems, or pain around the lower back.
Balancing the root chakra will help settle any security struggles, including money and shelter.
Red Jasper emits a strong healing energy that can be used to balance the root chakra. Using this root chakra stone during meditation will help you ground yourself, bring stability, and stimulate the flow of energy in through the root chakra.
2. Sacral Chakra - Orange Carnelian
The sacral chakra is located just below the belly button and is associated with the color orange. The sacral chakra is where the creativity lives within our bodies, relating to sex and other sources of pleasure.
When the sacral chakra is blocked, you may experience hormone imbalances, a decreased sex drive, lack of imagination, or addiction. Bringing this chakra into balance will allow you to experience balanced pleasure and bring a sense of passion to your pleasures.
Included in our chakra stone set, Orange Carnelian is one of the best crystals to use for balancing the sacral chakra. The energy of this sacral chakra crystal can stimulate creativity, increase your sex drive, and allow you to take control of your life.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra - Tiger’s Eye
Located at the belly button, the solar plexus is represented by the color yellow and is associated with our personal power, confidence, and gut instincts.
When this chakra becomes out of balance, you may experience greed, envy, or a lack of compassion. You may find it hard to get things done and it's common to feel insecure, needy, or powerless.
4. Heart Chakra - Aquamarine
Located at the heart, this chakra is where our love, compassion, and healing lies. It is associated with the colors pink and green.
When the heart chakra is blocked or unbalanced, you might struggle to make sound decisions related to your health or relationships. You may also experience chest pain, circulation issues, heartburn or heart palpitations.
Aquamarine is a great stone to balance the heart chakra. It helps to heal any existing relationship issues, whether it is your relationship with yourself or others, and it improves your sense of love, belonging, and compassion. This is definitely a favorite heart chakra stone.
5. Throat Chakra - Blue Sodalite
The throat chakra relates to all things communication. Located at the throat, it is associated with the color blue and represents your ability to speak your truth.
When unbalanced, you may struggle to express yourself fully or clearly, feel invalidated or unheard, and experience constant miscommunication with others. This could manifest into physical health problems such as cavities, throat pain, mouth ulcers, and digestive issues.
6. Third Eye Chakra - Amethyst
Located just between the eyebrows, the third eye chakra is associated with the color indigo and represents our spiritual sensations.
When out on balance, you may experience a disconnection with your intuition and your sense of spirituality. This blockage can show up in your body as headaches, allergies, or sinus related issues.
7. Crown Chakra - Clear Quartz
The crown chakra is located at the top of the head and is associated with the colors violet and white. This chakra represents our consciousness, and our connection to universal energy. The ability to balance this chakra only becomes present once we work through healing all the other chakras.
Clear Quartz is a high vibrational stone that resonates with the energy of the crown chakra. This crown chakra stone helps to raise your vibration and works to open you up to higher levels of consciousness.
How to Use a Chakra Stone Set

Use Them While Meditating
You can also use them during chakra meditations in a variety of ways:
- You can place them in a circle around you, or on a table in front of you as you meditate to stimulate all of your energy centers.
