The Sanskrit name for the solar plexus chakra is Manipura which is often translated as “city of jewels” (Mani meaning “gem,” and Pura meaning “city.”).

Manipura is located in the upper abdomen. It is associated with the fire element and the color yellow.

The solar plexus chakra is all about your inner power, self-esteem, and confidence.

Solar plexus is the seat of your ego.

When your solar plexus chakra is balanced, you don’t get caught up in your ego. You have a healthy self-esteem. You don’t need to prove or justify anything to others. You are happy with who you are.

When your solar plexus chakra is out of balance you are doubtful, insecure, and seeking continuous approval. You lack motivation and a sense of purpose. You suffer from low self-esteem and lack of self-respect.

There are many methods you can use to help balance and unblock your solar plexus chakra, working with crystals being one of them. The six crystals below can be of a great assistance in healing your Manipura.

    Citrine is an energizing and protective stone.  

    It absorbs and transmutes negative energy into positive one.

    Citrine is a go to crystal for cleansing your solar plexus chakra (citrine itself is one of the crystals that don’t need cleansing).

    It is a fantastic crystal to boost your self-esteem and self-confidence.

    It promotes joy of life. It will give you extra energy to achieve your goals and manifest your dreams. It will help you focus on building successful future rather than hanging on to the challenging past.

    Citrine is a prosperity crystal. If you are interested in Feng Shui, consider placing it in the wealth corner of your home or office (the far left corner you can see from the front door or the door to an individual room).

    Please note: natural citrine is relatively rare, a heat-treated amethyst or smoky quartz are sold as citrine (having similar energy as the natural citrine).


    Tiger’s Eye

    Manipura is associated with the fire element and tiger’s eye is connected to the sun and solar energy. So, no surprise that it is a great crystal to balance your solar plexus chakra :).

    Tiger’s eye is a protective stone, removing negative energies (traditionally, it was used as a talisman against curses).

    It is also a stone of good luck, abundance, and prosperity. It can assist you in achieving goals and manifestation.

    Work with it if you want to boost your self-esteem and confidence.

    Also: you can use it with other crystals and stones to boost their energies.


    Pyrite (Fool’s Gold)

    Pyrite clears blockages in your solar plexus chakra.

    It offers protection from negative thinking and helps maintain positive mindset.

    It is a great stone to attract wealth, prosperity, and abundance. It can help you boost motivation to work towards your goals. 

    It helps to stabilize and balance your ego energy.

    It enhances self-worth and confidence; it is helpful in overcoming an inferiority complex.
