The Best Crystals for Leo Sun Sign
Leo July 23 – Aug 22
Leo’s are known for being like the lions that they represent: confident, natural-born leaders, and independent. They can also be quite fiery and intense sometimes.
Known as the Stone of Luck, green aventurine really emanates LUCK! It’s like a four leaf clover in crystal form.

Sunstone is a GORGEOUS stone that seems like the perfect stone for summer. When I think of Leo, I think SUMMER since Leo season is right in the middle of summer for us. When I first saw sunstone, I could really sense the warmth coming from this stone! It is said to carry the light and happy energies of the Sun within. Sunstone helps to give you strength and mental clarity, as well as openness and benevolence to others.

I have to admit, I would have thought Larimar would be more of a Cancer crystal, but it does make sense that it can benefit Leo’s. It’s a very calming, soothing stone so those that tend to be a bit fiery could definitely use some Larimar in their lives. Leo is the ONLY sun sign that Larimar is associated with, so it’s especially powerful for Leos! Larimar is a rare stone that can only be found in a small area in the Dominican Republic.

- Just looking at larimar can bring peace, especially if you are a lover of the beach- it carries the power of the ocean within it
