The Best Crystals to start the New Year- Cleanse, Detox and New Beginnings.

The Festive Season sure is a time filled with Joy and Happiness, a time to connect with your loved ones, overindulge and celebrate the year that was. When the New Year sets in by the end of the first week we often are starting to feel a little sluggish and it’s about this time we become ready to kick some New Year butt, cleanse the mind body and soul and get focused on what we want to manifest in the New Year.

It is especially important around this time of year that we are setting Intentions for our Crystals. By setting intentions we are programming our minds and our stones with positive mantras and affirmations that return the life experiences we seek. So by this I am referring to positive self talk that guides us in how we want to live and engage with the world. Checkout the blog post ‘ The Art of Setting Intentions instead of Resolutions for the New Year! (How -to)’ to read more on Intention Setting.

Ashley Bellino of Stoned Crystals has collated a list of the best stones to help with Cleansing, Detox, New Beginnings and Growth for the New Year. May they inspire you to move and seek new opportunities, find balance and always have just a little bit of magic on your side always.

Flushing your soul and grounding your body, it is like the morning light as the sun rises over a still sea – bringing in a new day, a new beginning.

Phantom Quartz


+  Recovery +  Nature +  Green-Thumb +  Grounding +  Patience

The Stone of Growth

The cycle of life is like a garden; seeds must be planted, care and attention must be given, it must be nourished, and eventually they will grow. Some plants are harvested – to start from a fresh slate. Then we begin again. Phantom Quartz is known to help growth and to feel the cycle of life. The crystal itself is formed when the growth of a crystal has been interrupted, then it begins to grow again. It goes without saying that this gives it the power of regeneration and healing – to help you grow. With patience, love and its grounding nature, it will help you bury your roots deep within the Earth’s skin and rise above as the most beautiful, blooming flower. 








+  Grace +  Destiny +  New Beginnings +  Compassion +  Creativity

The Stone of Destiny

Like the phases of the moon, we ourselves go through similar patterns of luminescence, energy, and then release. Channel your inner lunar goddess. Its nurturing, compassionate energy will fill you with blessings and unconditional love. It aids in new beginnings and endings – the ebb and flow of life. Moonstone will help you journey inward, lighting up your intuition, inspiration and wisdom. No matter the journey, no matter the heartache, Moonstone helps you to know that it is worth it in the end and that everything works for the greater good.
