The Solar Plexus chakra (Manipura) is the third chakra of the body and is located in the upper abdomen around the position of the diaphragm.
The Solar Plexus chakra is represented by the color yellow and manages our sense of self and is therefore linked to our feelings of self-confidence, self-image, and self-worth.
Because of this, the Solar Plexus chakra is a very important energy center to keep well-cared for, and this article aims to not only reveal the perfect stones for interactions with your Solar Plexus and why, but also how you can use these important stones to your own spiritual advantage.
Why Use Solar Plexus Chakra Stones And Crystals?
As mentioned, the Solar Plexus chakra is the seat of our drive and inner strength.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is the seat of our personality and sense of self, so when our Solar Chakra is neglected we can experience out-of-character emotions or reactions to external stimuli.
A misaligned Solar Plexus chakra can affect how we interact with others and the world around us as well as our perception of self leading to feelings of low-self esteem and self-doubt.
Crystals can be used to balance and realign our chakras, and when our Solar Plexus chakra is balanced we are imbued with confidence and can have harmonious interactions with others.
Alongside this, a balanced Solar Plexus chakra can also help us to make sound decisions and set positive intentions.
10 Solar Plexus Chakra Stones And Crystals
Citrine is a great example of a semi-precious stone most commonly found in jewelry items that can be worn to keep the Solar Plexus chakra in alignment.
As it is yellow in color it connects closely with the yellow energy of the Solar Plexus and is known to help relieve feelings of depression and increase our overall happiness and satisfaction with life.
2. Yellow Jasper
Yellow Jasper is a stone that is a combination of two other minerals; quartz and chalcedony and can be found in a range of yellow hues.
Yellow Jasper is great for both balancing and activating the Solar Plexus chakra and can therefore be used to increase self-confidence and self-esteem as well as resolve issues from misalignment.
In general, you’ll find that Yellow Jasper releases positive energy to you throughout your day.
Another great feature of Yellow Jasper is its protective qualities.
This stone is able to not only give us positive vibes to help us through our day but also protect us from the negative energies that can affect the harmony of our Solar Plexus chakra.
This makes Yellow Jasper a great stone for those with narcissists or energy vampires in their lives that they cannot avoid.
3. Bumblebee Jasper
If you’ve read one of my lists before then you know I like to add a stone a little out of the ordinary for those already well-experienced in the world of chakra stones, who are looking for something they may not have heard of before.
Bumblebee Jasper comes in a wide range of yellow shades and is characterized by its black and white stripes which is how it got its name.
Like Yellow Jasper, Bumblebee Jasper is a stone of positive energy and protection and is an ideal stone both for balancing the Solar Plexus chakra, but also looking after and maintaining its energy flow.
Unlike Yellow Jasper, however, Bumblebee Jasper can also work to unblock your Solar Plexus chakra allowing us to embrace our creative side and improve our concentration.
Amber is a common stone found worldwide and made from fossilized tree resin.
Amber is highly prized as a Solar Plexus stone and has been throughout history.
This is because Amber's abilities largely focus on the healing of emotional, mental, and physical ailments caused by Solar Plexus chakra imbalance instead of regulating or cleansing energy flow.
Because of this Amber is commonly known as the ‘stone of healing’.
As Amber is literally the fusion of the earth and the sun, it is known to radiate warm and grounding energies, making it a complementary stone to those used for work on the Root chakra.
5. Golden Heliodor
Golden Heliodor is part of the Beryl family and can come in a range of different yellowish hues.
Known as a hope stone, Golden Heliodor has calming energies which are perfect for those of us whose Solar Plexus chakra is in overdrive (which can lead to restlessness and anxiety).
On the flip side, Golden Heliodor is also an incredibly motivating stone to those lacking the energy needed to achieve their goals and can attract positive energy particularly within the career sector of our lives.
Also known as ‘Fools Gold’, Pyrite is actually a valuable stone for healing damage to your Solar Plexus chakra.
It helps us to stabilize our emotions and keeps extreme mood swings or energy fluctuations at bay.
Like Amethyst, which is a highly protective stone for the Crown Chakra, Pyrite is an excellent protector of the Solar Plexus chakra, and could be used well in conjunction with a Solar Plexus balancing crystal to provide your chakra with added security whilst alignment is achieved.
Alongside protection, Pyrite is also known as a personal luck stone, and can therefore be a great stone to wear if you feel like you need a little extra help from the universe to achieve your goals.

7. Yellow Topaz
Like Golden Heliodor, Yellow Topaz is well-regarded as one of the most useful stones for healing the hurts caused by long-term or dramatic Solar Plexus misalignment.
Yellow Topaz also uniquely exhibits some of the properties of Root chakra stones, as it is great for centering activities and for identifying your key purpose or driving force when things feel chaotic or unclear.
Like many Heart chakra stones, Yellow Topaz is also able to help you learn forgiveness and understanding particularly when it comes to setting lofty or over-ambitious goals for yourself.
8. Yellow Tiger’s Eye
While most people know of the brown-orange variant of this stone, Yellow Tiger’s Eye is a highly beneficial and sometimes overlooked stone.
Like the mighty beast, it got its name from, Yellow Tiger’s Eye is a strong confidence stone with a powerful aura that can act as a shield between its user and outside negative forces.
While it provides powerful protection externally, Yellow Tiger’s Eye is also able to simultaneously work within.
This stone resonates at the same frequency as your Solar Plexus chakra and is, therefore, able to shake free blockages within your energy flow.

As you’ve probably already guessed, the Solar Plexus chakra resonates closely with the energies of the sun, so what better stone to add to this list than Sunstone!
Sunstone vibrates with the energy of the sun making it a must-have stone for those with Solar Plexus problems.
It’s a great stone for improving your self-esteem, self-confidence, and sense of self-worth, so can be wonderfully used as a stone for recovery after a difficult time.
Sunstone works well to improve your perception of self for two reasons.
Firstly it works closely with the Root chakra, allowing you to feel stable, grounded, and reassured in your abilities.
Secondly, this stone shines a spotlight on your unique talents and will likely reveal to you your unique skills and abilities that are worth celebrating!
10. Yellow Aventurine
Like Sunstone, Yellow Aventurine is a very stabilizing stone, making it handy if you often find that your Solar Plexus chakra slips into overdrive.
Yellow Aventurine is also excellent for those struggling with congestion within their Solar Plexus as well as those looking to nurture and strengthen this energy center as it improves your decision-making skills, and your confidence and belief in your inner voice.
Yellow Aventurine is great for nurturing these empowering feelings because it is a compassionate stone that will help you to forgive your shortcomings and focus on your strengths.
There are many excellent stones for the Solar Plexus Chakra, that I couldn’t write an individual entry on each one.
Instead here’s a list of stones, many more obscure, that you may wish to look into during your own research:
- Golden Calcite
- Pineapple Calcite
- Yellow Sapphire
- Golden Quartz
- Rutilated Quartz
- Mookaite Jasper
- Golden Lemuria
- Orange Calcite
A Quick Note On Quartz
Of course, this wouldn’t be a comprehensive crystal list without a mention of everyone’s ‘does-it-all crystal; Quartz.
While the clear variant of this stone can certainly be used for Solar Plexus chakra work, if you’re looking for an extra boost from your quartz crystal then try the Lemon Quartz variety.
As you may have guessed this stone is yellow in color and resonates more specifically with the Solar Plexus chakra over other chakra points.
How To Use Stones & Crystals For Your Solar Plexus Chakra
So now you know the stones and crystals that are best for healing, maintaining, unblocking, regulating, and sustaining your Solar Plexus chakra, how do you use them?
Well, there’s a variety of different methods and some are so simple that you won’t even need to make a conscious effort to include them into your routine.
Others are a little more in-depth and may appeal more to the spiritualist, pagan, or Wiccan among us.
Either way, here’s a rundown of the best ways to make the most of your chosen Solar Plexus stone (or stones).
- Wearing your Crystals: Many of the crystals on this list such as Amber and Citrine are gorgeous stones commonly featured in jewelry. Wearing your chosen stone throughout the day keeps its powerful vibrational energy close, and gives you the benefits of long-term exposure. This method is particularly useful with the protective stones on this list as throughout the day they can work to shield you from experiences that could damage your Solar Plexus Chakra. If jewelry isn’t your thing, then simply carrying around your chosen stone in your pocket, or even as a key ring or bag charm, works just as well.
- Meditation: A lot of people choose to meditate with their chakra crystals. Some prefer to hold the crystal as they meditate, but others like to apply the crystal directly to the area of the respective chakra. In the case of the Solar Plexus chakra, this would be on your upper abdomen.
- Elixirs: Some opt to create elixirs from their crystals to maximize the absorption of their energies. There are many guides online for how to do this.
- Placing Around the Home: Simply placing beneficial stones around your home can have a hugely positive impact and can keep your chakras in check. It’s important to note though, that many Solar Plexus chakras are invigorating as they use the energy of the sun, so avoid placing these stones in your bedroom and instead place them in areas where you’re active such as your desk, home gym, or kitchen.
- Crystal Grid: Making a crystal grid can be a therapeutic spiritual activity and is fascinating to learn. Some people like to meditate using their assembled crystal grid.
- In the Sunshine: As mentioned most of the Solar Plexus crystals and stones imbue fire energy and vibrate closely with the energies of the sun. Therefore you may find some peace and benefit in carrying a Solar Plexus Crystal with you on a sunny day, perhaps on a mindfulness walk.
- Planning and Goal-Setting: Keeping a Solar Plexus crystal nearby when planning, journaling, or setting future goals can help give you the confidence and reassurance to strive for what you want and truly need in life.
Final Thoughts Solar Plexus Chakra Stones
The Solar Plexus chakra is the energy center concerned with our sense of self, purpose, and drive.
