5 Crystals for Connecting with the New Moon

I have a tendency to be drawn to crystals associated with the full moon, like moonstone, selenite and amethyst. Stones that are all about the bright, shining beauty of the full phase. But there are also some incredibly beautiful and powerful crystals perfect for use at the new moon phase as well.

Some of these stones are linked to the deep darkness that occurs at the new moon, when the moon is completely dark in the sky. This is a time for regenerative magick and learning to understand your dark side.

At the same time, the new moon is also the start of the lunar cycle and is a time for setting intentions and starting fresh, so some of these crystals are more closely associated with inspiration, creativity and success.
