Dec 22 – Jan 19
Colour: Brown, Black
Ruling planet: Saturn
Capricorns are every bit as loyal as their sign would suggest, but they have a tendency to focus on the details and remain pragmatic as they work toward achieving their goals. Living an intense life like this means they could certainly use a little help, which is where healing stones and crystals come into play.
Like every birth sign, there’s at least some debate over what the right birthstones are for gifts given to a Capricorn. That being said, you might want to consider garnet if you’re looking for something purely decorative.
Birthstones for Capricorn Gifts:
Garnet is January’s birthstone, which means many people born under the sign will value it. That being said, it certainly has some healing properties as well that aren’t to be missed.
A healing garnet rock is perfect for those with emotional imbalances, which makes them a great gift for Capricorns who crank all the intensity up in their lives. That’s also why fluorite and rose quartz have remained popular gifts for Capricorns.
These stones help to neutralize negative forces while also nurturing love and acceptance of self. This second trait is something that many individuals born under the sign have claimed to need. When used in concert, these two stones can be even more effective against these issues as well as those related more indirectly to self-esteem. Those with self-esteem problems tend to develop other issues, so treating this underlying cause can go a long way toward ensuring overall systemic health. You may even wish to pair them with other stones on a decorative tray and periodically charge them together.
A black tourmaline stone can also help to repel bad vibrations, and these too have long been associated with Capricorns for a variety of reasons. Those who are looking for more creative gifts may want to look to smokey quartz, which is perhaps one of the best options for those who are dealing with constant feelings of self-doubt and criticism.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to give any of these as a raw stone, though loose crystals are certain very attractive presents and quite helpful to those who use minerals for healing and self-improvement. There are countless pieces of jewellery that could make for an attractive setting.
