The One Crystal You Need To Get If You're A Leo

If you are a Leo sign, you likely feel creative, generous, and spirited on any given day — you're the friend who won't hesitate leaving their house at 1 a.m. to get their best friend out of a bind, and you're always vivacious, passionate, and the life of the party (via Allure). Lion-hearted and fierce, Leos have an innate royal status that brings the drama, are natural leaders, and love the luxe life (via

As sun signs, Leos exude vitality everywhere they go, and since the sun never goes in retrograde, Leos are known for their stability, too. That being said, just like lions, Leo signs can be overly prideful, and can let their ego and jealousy get in the way of their relationships (via Allure).

If you're curious to try them out yourself, there are three crystals in particular that will harness your stubbornness and ego, while still giving you room to shine bright.

Another crystal that works great for the Leo sign is the gorgeous rose quartz, which "encourages self-acceptance and enhances empathy" for the somewhat ego-centered sign (via FabFitFun).

Moreover, garnet stones (via can work for Leos to promote loyalty and increase strength and confidence, which simply emphasize traits the lively lion sign is known for.
