What Do White Gemstones & Crystals Mean?

Learn the names and meanings of white and transparent gems and crystals including howlite, selenite, magnesite, quartz, opal, moonstone, and diamond.

What do white gemstones mean?

White and clear gemstones & crystals correspond to the crown chakra. They each have different meanings, but overall white crystals are often used for increasing awareness, meditation, purification, and awakening consciousness to higher states.

If you feel called to be a Lightworker, white crystals are going to a great friend and ally on your path.

Herkimer Diamond Meaning

Herkimer Diamond

Herkimer Diamonds are a special form of quartz that are shaped like diamonds. They enhance dreams & visions, and are ideal for use in meditation, crystal grids, and body layouts.

Magnesite Meaning

Magnesite

Magnesite is a white gemstone that helps support psychic abilities and awaken your consciousness to higher states.

Selenite Meaning

Selenite

Selenite is best known for being a clearing & purification crystal. It can be used to clear the aura from negativity or stuck energy, and to clear crystals by placing them on top of a flat piece of selenite.

Howlite Meaning

Howlite

Howlite is calming because it encourages you to “live and let live”, letting go of attachments that are causing stress and encouraging you to enjoy your life as it is without worrying about what others are doing. This in turn promotes true rest, which is why it is known for helping with insomnia.

Quartz Meaning

Quartz

Clear quartz crystal is the most useful and versatile of gemstones for metaphysical work. It has the unique property of being “programmable”, meaning you can infuse it with your intention and then it will amplify it, working on your behalf to manifest it in the world. It also acts to amplify the energies of any other stone you are working with.

Diamond Meaning

Diamond

Diamonds encourage stepping up and stepping into your true power to be a force for good in the world–that is, accepting and fulfilling your spiritual destiny. They encourage you to see, seek, and radiate the Light within yourself. They are intense stones! Note: Rough/natural diamond crystals are more effective for metaphysical work than cut diamonds (and a lot more affordable!).

Moonstone Meaning

Moonstone

Moonstone is a stone of feminine power and mystery. It assists in journeying inwardly and finding hidden truths in our unconscious and in past lives. It enhances intuition and encourages the wisdom and patience to trust Divine timing.

Pearl Meaning

Pearl

Natural pearls are unique gems in that they are created biologically by a sea mollusk adding successive layers of material consisting of shell, aragonite, and calcite. As such they do not have the natural crystalline structure of most crystals that are used for healing. However, they do carry the energy of their component minerals, as well as the nurturing medicine of the sea.

Opal Meaning

Opal

Opal’s fire carries a spiritual energy that burns through attachments, wounds, and negative patterns. It can amplify your emotions, bringing semi-conscious patterns to the surface of your awareness to be dealt with. When these are cleared, it also amplifies joy.
