WHAT ARE THE BEST CRYSTALS FOR CAPRICORN?
GARNET: A CAPRICORN BIRTHSTONE
CHARACTERISTICS + HISTORY OF Garnet
Garnets are a diverse group of stones taking many different forms and colors, although this stone is most known for being a red gemstone. This deep red color is also reflected in the name which was derived from the Latin word "granatum", meaning pomegranate.
Popular in many ancient cultures dating back over four thousand years ago, Garnet has been used in jewelry and in healing applications for much of human history, even appearing in the story of Noah's ark as a light source. Garnet has been used for everything from ornamental objects by the Aztecs to dispelling melancholy in the Middle Ages.
HOW TO USE Garnet
This Capricorn crystal is thought to bring warmth to the body and stir up energy, which is perfect for the beginning of the cold Winter season. Garnets are also said to attract the energy of Capricorn's ruling planet Saturn to help balance the mind, emotions, and body and may help in finding more overall alignment.
If you are looking to harness some of Capricorn's discipline, this stone might be your perfect match as it may help summon inspiration and excitement into even your simplest tasks.
The downside of having such a driven and hard-working energy is the tendency to slip into being a workaholic. Garnet may aid in removing old patterns that no longer serve you and help to balance any feelings of self-doubt or inadequacy that are leading to working far too hard. Wearing garnet may open the way to abundance, vitality, and confidence in your path forward.

LABRADORITE: Enhance Intuition
Magic, Awareness, Power
CHARACTERISTICS + HISTORY OF Labradorite
This stone is named after the Labrador peninsula in Canada, the region where it was "discovered" in 1770. However, it is now found in many other countries including Finland, Norway, and Mexico. Its use in jewelry increased in popularity in the nineteenth century when deposits were discovered in Russia.
Labradorite is a feldspar mineral and has a dull, dark blue-green appearance. But when this stone is turned in the light, it exhibits flashy colors of blue, green, gold and more! This phenomenon is known as labradorescence, a type of iridescence.
HOW TO USE Labradorite
Because Capricorns are known for their pragmatic approach to life, Labradorite can help to remind them to look at situations from every angle to see the hidden truths and treasures of each experience.
Labradorite can aid Capricorn in tapping into their intuition bringing them flashes of wisdom and insight to solve problems, as well as helping them turn inwards to balance this sense of commitment to their work with their overall purpose.
In their ambition and hard work, Capricorns can fall into the trap of being too hard on themselves. Labradorite is a stone of transformation and can help bring awareness to and transmute your anxieties, negative self-talk, and the stories you are telling yourself about any mistakes or regrets you may have.

BLACK TOURMALINE: FOR GROUNDING ENERGY
Grounding, Protection, Luck
CHARACTERISTICS + HISTORY OF Black Tourmaline
Black Tourmaline, also known as Schorl, is composed of a complex chemical formula that creates the crystal's pointed terminations. The iron in its makeup is responsible for its inky black color. Black Tourmaline is piezoelectric and will create a different electrical charge at each end of the stone when pressure or heat is applied to it.
Due to these electrical and magnetic properties, Black Tourmaline was used in experiments by Benjamin Franklin and has been found to convey an electric current no matter how small it is ground or crushed.
This stone has been used for centuries as a talisman for protection against negativity, from bad vibes to curses. Some say to rub Black Tourmaline for luck and happiness. You can also use it to create a protection crystal grid to guard your home by burying a piece in the 4 corners of your yard, or placing a piece in the 4 corners of your house.
HOW TO USE Black Tourmaline
Black Tourmaline can be extremely helpful to Capricorn because it is thought to purify negative energies from your surrounding or within yourself. It may aid in clearing negative or cluttered thoughts so that you may gain focus on what's important and get to work on your goals. This is another stone that can be used when wanting to let go of thoughts, patterns, or energies that are no longer serving you.
Potentially the most grounding stone of the Capricorn crystals, this Capricorn crystal resonates with the Root Chakra. This energy matches the natural traits of the zodiac sign and aids in easing any stress, eliminating any anxieties, and improving self-confidence.
