Tumbled Snowflake Obsidian: $1.50
When the holidays get difficult, Snowflake Obsidian tumbled stones are there for support. Cheaper than a festive latte, Snowflake Obsidian is the perfect choice for self-care or giving a loved one a boost.
This crystal’s gentle white flakes glow against its black surface, embodying the light in the darkness. Snowflake Obsidian encourages you to release things that no longer serve you and focus on what nourishes your instead.

Tumbled Green Garnet: $4.50
Our pocket-sized tumbled Green Garnet is as lush and inviting as a Christmas tree. Garnet has been associated with the Winter Solstice for hundreds of years, and Green Garnet helps keep you centered during all of the craziness of the holiday season.
Green Garnet grounds you in your needs, not just your wants. Its loving vibrations bring people together and helps you focus on the warmest, kindest aspects of the holidays. Green Garnet is also a manifestation crystal that makes all of your Christmas wishes come true!
Pink Dolomite Cluster: $9.50
This stunning Dolomite cluster brings A Christmas Carol into your home. As Dickens said, “At this festive season of the year… it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the Poor and destitute, who suffer greatly at the present time.”
Dolomite is an extremely altruistic crystal. It draws out your highest self and encourages you to serve your community through charity, volunteer work, and small acts of kindness. Dolomite helps you share your abundance throughout the holiday season, elevating both yourself and those around you.
Citrine Triple-Stone Pendant: $16
Our triple-stone Citrine pendant will help your loved ones keep the Christmas spirit all year long! Citrine emits pure positivity, infusing every event with joy and laughter. It also attracts abundance for prosperity during the holidays and throughout the new year.
There is no better surprise than a crystal on Christmas morning! You can try these crystals or explore the My Dream Crystals Etsy shop for more stocking stuffer ideas.
Don't Forget the Pets: Crystals for Their Comfort
While we’re bustling around all December, it can be easy to cut a few corners. While there’s nothing wrong with opting for the store-bought pie or losing a few zzz’s to wrap presents, we don’t want to forget our loyal animal companions.
The holidays can be extremely stressful for pets. There is a lot of activity, and new people come through the door every day. The decorations can make their home feel a little strange, and to top it all off, they may not get as much attention as they are used to.
Here are a few of our favorite crystals to keep pets calm and contented all season long:
Amethyst cuts through the holiday stress to keep your pets centered and at ease. Its soothing vibrations are perfect for jumpy or overactive animals. Amethyst also provides physical and spiritual protection that guides pets through transitions.
Carnelian’s warm, friendly energy reminds your pets that you love them deeply, even if your busy schedule has cut out some of your quality time. This crystal is also an excellent choice if your pets will be meeting your friends or family’s furry friends for the first time over the holidays, as it promotes harmony.
Known as “the Supreme Nurturer,” Jasper provides your pets with unlimited support. Its grounding energy helps calm anxious animals, and it is great for stressful situations like big holiday parties.
Rose Quartz’s loving energy draws out shy or nervous pets, encouraging them to form connections with humans and other animals. This crystal will support them through any anxiety-inducing situation and also reminds them of your strong bond. Rose Quartz is a must-have for rescue animals, especially as they transition to a new home.
Once you’ve chosen the right crystal(s) for your furry friends, you can use them in a variety of ways. Consider adding a stone to their water bowl, attaching it to their collar, or simply keeping it near their beds. Crystals will support your pets through Christmas and a Happy New Year!
The Crystal of Christmas and How to Use It
If there is one crystal that embodies the spirit of Christmas, it is Angel Aura Quartz. This unique stone truly brings joy to the world.
Angel Aura Quartz, also known as Opal or Unicorn Aura Quartz is named for its stunning iridescence, which resembles rainbow-colored angel wings. It forms when Clear or Rose Quartz fuses with platinum or silver during a heat treatment.
While the process that creates Angel Aura Quartz occurs in a lab, it does not mean that Angel Aura Quartz is “synthetic” or “fake.” This technique simply brings together a powerful stone and a powerful metal to make a gorgeous, distinctive crystal.
Angel Aura Quartz channels divine love. It shines as brightly as the star on top of your Christmas tree and radiates positivity. Angel Aura Quartz draws out your highest, most charitable self and leaves you with a feeling of profound peace. This crystal also strengthens relationships, making it the perfect tool for bringing harmony to holiday parties, family gatherings, and individual relationships.
There are many ways you can use Angel Aura Quartz to make this holiday season your merriest yet. Because it is such a visually striking stone, an Angel Aura Quartz cluster makes great décor. Place it in a communal area, such as your living room, dining room, or kitchen, to bring your family and friends together and avoid conflict.
Angel Aura Quartz has a strong connection to the spiritual realm that supercharges your meditation practice. Leave it piece on your meditation altar or hold it in your hand while meditating to facilitate communication with your spirit guides and support your quest for enlightenment.
Angel Aura Quartz’s soothing energy also makes it an excellent worry stone. Simply hold a piece whenever you feel overwhelmed, anxious, or stressed, and let Angel Aura Quartz’s loving vibrations erase your fears.
This Christmas, work with Angel Aura Quartz to raise the frequencies of your holiday celebrations and cultivate your highest self. Angel Aura Quartz’s gentle energy will support you throughout the festivities and all year round.
Crystal Ornaments for Protection and the Tree
You’re already used to making your Christmas tree sparkle with lights, tinsel, and brightly colored balls, but have you thought about crystals?
Crystal ornaments add a special luster to your holiday celebrations, and they’re also functional! Placing a crystal ornament on your tree helps bring everyone together and set strong intentions for the new year to come.
The true MVP of the crystal world, Clear Quartz reflects both the lights on your tree and its own healing properties. Clear Quartz’s calming vibrations will counteract holiday anxiety and maintain harmony in your space. It also helps you reconnect with your spirituality and innate wisdom to get the most meaning out of the holiday season. For the best results, set an intention for your Clear Quartz ornament before you put it on the tree.
For ultimate protection for your loved ones this holiday season, chose an Amethyst ornament. This high-vibration stone will absorb negative energy and transform it into positivity. Amethyst relieves stress and promotes love and compassion to fill your home with warm, fuzzy feelings. This crystal’s strong connection to the spiritual realm will also help you connect with Christmas angels.
Selenite promotes personal transformation, and placing it on your Christmas tree helps you set intentions for the new year. When you look at your Selenite ornament, reflect on how you’ve grown and how you still want to challenge yourself to be better. This gentle yet powerful crystal will guide you along your spiritual journey while easing feelings of stress.
A stone of acceptance, Agate ornaments help you end the year on a positive note. This crystal balances your being and promotes clarity, allowing you to enjoy the holiday celebrations without lingering negativity or pent-up frustrations. Agate also boosts your memory so that you can cherish your holiday recollections for years to come.
Citrine shines like the star on top of your tree, and it is the perfect addition to your Christmas celebrations. Citrine welcomes prosperity and positivity into your home, making the holidays brighter and setting you up for success in the coming year.
While it may not sparkle as brightly as some of the other crystals on this list, Smoky Quartz’s strong protective properties will uplift your holiday celebrations. It relieves stress, depression, and anxiety while also encouraging positive thoughts. Smoky Quartz grounds you in your needs, allowing you to feel grateful and centered.

Daily Rituals for Cultivating Your Calm
Somehow, everything piles up at the end of the year: your boss assigns you five new projects with ridiculously short deadlines, you still have ten people to cross off your gift list, and to top it all off, you got stuck hosting Christmas!
Now more than ever, it’s important to cultivate a calm mindset. Here are five small rituals that you can add to your daily routine to keep yourself balanced for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
7am: Body Scan with Kyanite
When you wake up, your first step is a quick body scan with Kyanite. This crystal realigns all of your Chakras and removes energy blockages, setting you up for success all day long.
Simply hold a piece of Kyanite and focus on your breath. After you feel attuned to your breath cycles, start scanning your body. Work slowly, from your feet all the way up to the top of your head. Notice any sensation you encounter and release it. A Kyanite body scan only takes 5 minutes, but it can make a world of difference!
8am: Wear Amethyst
As you’re getting ready for the day, consider adding some Amethyst jewelry to your outfit. This high-vibration crystal will protect you from negativity while also keeping you calm and focused. Amethyst transforms negative energy into positivity, making it the perfect companion in times of stress.
3pm: Charge Your Coffee or Tea with Fluorite
The mid-afternoon slump can be the hardest part of the day! Instead of relying on caffeine alone, supercharge your beverage of choice with Fluorite.
Fluorite emits clarifying vibrations, pushing through the stress and the brain fog to help you concentrate on your work, prioritize tasks, and process information. This crystal also relieves the effects of stress and anxiety. It shows you the reality of a situation to support strong decision-making.
Leave Fluorite next to your mug, and all of this stone’s focusing and calming vibrations will indirectly charge your drink!
5pm: Release Negativity with Black Tourmaline
As evening approaches, take a second to cleanse yourself of any stress or toxicity that you unwittingly picked up during the day. Black Tourmaline acts like a psychic car wash, cleansing you of any negativity.
This ritual is the simplest of all: place Black Tourmaline at your front door so that when you return home, your aura is automatically purified.
10pm: Place Some Angelite Under Your Pillow
When it’s time to get ready for bed, Angelite’s soothing energy will quiet your mind and help you drift into a restful sleep. This crystal is a conduit for divine wisdom. It calms your worries with universal love, while also allowing you to receive messages from your spirit guides and angels.
Place a small Angelite stone under your pillow or on your bedside table for sweet dreams all night long.
All of these rituals are small enough to incorporate immediately, or you can start by adding one at a time. Working with them can transform the holiday hustle and bustle into a truly magical time of love and light.
