What does a Crystal Egg represent?
Eggs represent new beginnings. We all know that eggs bring life through birth. Just look at the divine, innocent and adorable baby chick that hatches from its cozy shell to join us on Earth. If you are looking for a fresh new start, crystal eggs are perfect for you.
Because life in itself is a miracle, we associate eggs with bringing about magic. If you are looking to infuse miracles and magic into your life, crystal eggs are perfect for you.
Eggs are also a symbol for Spring. Eggs represent fertility, virility and flourishing life force. In Christianity, they symbolize resurrection and eternal life. If you are looking for youthfulness, sexuality, and life force chi, crystal eggs are perfect for you.
Crystal Eggs as Easter Collectibles
With Easter being the celebration of Spring, it is only fitting that eggs have been focal in this holiday. It is tradition to give eggs on Easter.
For children, chocolate eggs are classic. Painting of Easter eggs has been going on since the 13th century. More recently, plastic eggs with gifts inside have become popular.
Adults celebrate Easter with egg gifting too. Traditionally, hens eggs were given. Porcelain eggs are a charming collectible item, such as the famous Faberge eggs. If you're opting for something more natural than the branded porcelains, crystal eggs make marvelous Easter collectibles.
Crystal eggs come in a variety of different stones that are naturally colored- no need to dig out the paints! Decorate your home and hearth with pink Rose Quartz eggs, blue Lapis Lazuli eggs, brown Tiger's Eye eggs, and clear Quartz eggs.

Crystal Eggs for Acupressure
Crystal eggs are a great choice for acupressure.
Practitioners of acupressure sometimes use special tools to help them apply pressure to the key points on the body's meridian. Crystal eggs are an ideal choice because either end of the egg can be used. The top can be used to apply gentle pressure to the points. The more rounded bottom can be used to rub muscles for blood and energy circulation.
The goal of acupressure and Asian bodywork is not just to relieve pain, but to ultimately restore a holistic balance of the yin and yang energies. Since the modality is focused on total wellness, crystal eggs bring an additional element to the healing process. Every crystal has its own healing benefits, and those become incorporated into the session. Acupressure with crystal eggs brings on double healing.
You can also use crystal eggs for Gua sha energy flow in the face. Just like gemstone facial tools, using stone eggs will get the blood flowing and rejuvenate your skin for a youthful glow.
Lisa's Personal Experience with Crystal Eggs
I don't use crystal eggs as often as crystal balls, but they became of utmost importance to me during my pregnancy. Knowing that nothing would beat a crystal egg during this time of changes, my little blue Lapis Lazuli egg and little green Bloodstone egg became my best buddies.
When I was pregnant, I knew nothing about babies or kids. Did I even have a single motherly instinct within me? My Lapis Lazuli egg opened my Third Eye Chakra and the flow of natural intuitions. It alleviated the doubts I had, which I'm sure many parents-to-be experience.
My Lapis Lazuil egg kept me mentally strong through the many moods of pregnancy. Whenever stress and anxiety reared their heads, I would take hold of my blue crystal egg. It helped to wash away fears and go forth in this new chapter of life.
Physically, pregnancy was a trying time. That's when my Bloodstone Egg stepped up and took the job of keeping me healthy. The many healing properties of Bloodstone helped get me through a visit to the ER, endure several risk factors that arose, and ultimately survive labor and delivery.
I am grateful for my guardian angel crystal eggs that guided me through pregnancy so I could experience the miracle of new life. Baby Andrew was born strong, handsome, and perfect.
Metaphysical Uses for Crystal Eggs
What are crystal eggs used for in the metaphysical realm? Besides decoration, gifting and massage, egg shaped stones have an excellent healing energy.
Here are some things you can use your crystal eggs for metaphysically:
1. Breaking Old Habits
The crystal egg stands for rebirth and therefore is the best tool for breaking old habits so you can form new healthier ones. Set your will and intention on shedding old negative patterns, and then surround yourself with crystal eggs. The egg allows you to focus on new, healthy thoughts and lifestyle choices. Breaking old habits may take time, but is essential to your soul's growth.
2. Writing Manifestation Lists
It is a wise practice to write a manifestation list every few months. This clarifies your life goals so that you can go full force in achieving your dreams.
Manifesting new things is what crystal eggs love to do, as they are all about new beginnings. Hold the egg while you read the list aloud. Saying affirmations every day with an egg in your hand speeds the process of manifestation along.
2. Praying for Miracles
Eggs bring the miracle of life. They can bring you other miracles as well. When in prayer, hold a crystal egg in your hand. The vibration of the stone will intensify your prayers and send the message out into the Universe (or straight to God's ears, depending on your beliefs).
4. Feng Shui Placement
For Feng Shui purposes, the crystal egg is ideal in the bedroom. Since eggs bring fertility, they are perfect for those wishing to conceive. Continue to keep the egg in your bedroom through pregnancy and birth to completely benefit from its positive effects.
Alternatively, eggs are good for the office or place of business when you are starting a new venture. They will put you on the path of courageousness and success.
Everyday Uses for Crystal Eggs
Besides their metaphysical energies, gemstone eggs have practical uses in home and life.
Here are a few ideas on how to use your crystal egg for everyday uses:
1. Home and Kitchen Decor
Eggs make a wonderful collectible item for the home. Chickens and eggs are popular decorative themes for kitchens in particular. Eggs bring about a feeling of family, life, and nature. They make artful pieces in traditional homes, modern living, and even trendy urban farmhouses.
2. Crystal Egg Massage
You don't have to be an acupuncture practitioner to enjoy the healing benefits of a crystal egg massage. The pointier top end of crystal eggs are great for digging into the pesky deep tissue pains. The smoother bottom end can be used to gently rub muscles. Try a circular motion for specific pain relief. Try and up and down motion to get blood flow going.
3. Gemstone Yoni Eggs
The recently resurrected trend for crystal eggs is to use them as Yoni eggs. Kegel exercises with Yoni eggs may strengthen the pelvic floor. Because it is discouraged by medical professionals, Satin Crystals does not sell crystal eggs for this purpose.
We respect a woman's individual choice, hence recommend you talk to your doctor before engaging in the sacred and sensual ritual. Learn about the do's and dont's of yoni eggs to make an informed decision alongside your doctor.
4. Gifting Crystal Eggs
Crystal eggs make the perfect decorative and meaningful gift for Easter. Naturally bright and springy tones like pink Rose Quartz, pastel green Amazonite, and raspberry Rubellite Tourmaline pair well with this holiday.
Eggs are excellent for graduates who are about to embark on a new chapter in life. Bold eggs that provide courage and confidence to go forth are ideal, such as green Aventurine for financial success, orange Carnelian for goal realization, and blue Lapis Lazuli for innovate thinking.
Crystal eggs are beloved by mothers, grandmothers, and daughters all year round. Malachite eggs are stunning, unusual, and precious.

Sheila's Personal Experiences with Crystal Eggs
I have always been fascinated by the idea that the crystal eggs can heal imbalances in your body. I imagine an egg wobbling around in your energy field, trying to find its balance. Kind of like Humpty-Dumpty on his brick wall.
I use crystal eggs for massage. I am a big massage person and usually resort to self-massage if I don't get the motivation to make an appointment and commute to a real masseuse. Sitting hours at the computer or bent over the bead board, gift me with tiny knots at the neck.
I like to use a palm size crystal egg and untangle those pesky knots. The smaller side of the eggs can get in deeper and the large side is more soothing over a large surface of neck.
How do you cleanse and charge a crystal egg?
The type of stone your crystal egg is polished from will determine how you can clean it physically. For softer stones like Selenite and Angelite, you will only want to use a soft cloth or maybe even something as airy as a feather duster. For harder stones like Quartz and Agate you will be able to use water and soap or even an organic glass cleaner.
To energetically clean, charge and program your stone eggs for healing, you can choose from a variety of methods. This includes water (for the harder stones), incense, crystal clusters, the power of the moon or the rays of the sun. Check out our Crystal Care guide to learn more.
