Jade eggs are held up as the absolute pinnacle of desirability. They are what you should be aiming for if you are looking at venturing down the yoni egg path, anything less is deemed not quite acceptable.
Don’t get me wrong, they are stunning but they are not the only crystal on the block.
The Yoni egg practice started thousands of years ago in China. The Emperors at the time kept concubines and one of the ways for them to remain youthful was through the Yoni egg practice. The Chinese love jade. It is one of their most prized stones. They believe it brings good fortune and long life and used it for many good luck symbols.
When I studied feng shui a lot of the talismans for good luck and prosperity were carved out of jade.
Here in New Zealand we have our own form of jade commonly called greenstone. The Maori name for it is pounamu and it is a sacred stone to them. I would dearly love to have yoni eggs made out of this but as I said it is a sacred stone to the Maori and only a select few people have access to collecting and carving it.
What makes jade so special?
(1) Its the traditional stone used
Yes, it is. The Chinese revere this crystal and it is part of their cultural heritage to use jade as a crystal of good fortune, prosperity, long life, good health and much more.
Does that make it the most desirable crystal to use? Not necessarily.
(2) Its very hard
Yes, it is and yes, that is what you want for any crystal that you are going to be using internally.
The MOHS hardness scale is the scale used for measuring the density and hardness of crystals. Jade comes in at a 6. To put that in perspective diamond is the hardest at 10.
Those are the two biggest reasons given for using jade and to be honest, I don’t think that is enough. Jade is also becoming more and more expensive as there is less of it around. Most jade now comes from Canada not China.
There is a lot of fake jade out there. I Googled jade for this post and some of the images that came up were everything from malachite (which you definitely would not be using inside of you) to chrysoprase.
So what’s a girl to do?
There are so many other crystals that you can use as yoni eggs. As well as some you really shouldn’t.
My favoite yoni egg crystals and why I love them:
This is a beautiful crystal for self love and we all need more of that. It is a very gentle energy. Rose quartz helps to heal our heart’s. I often refer to our womb as our “second heart” but I’ll save that for another post.
Acording to Robert Simmons “Book of Stones” “It’s soothing vibrations are a balm to the emotions and, and they cleanse the entirte auric field.”
Judy Hall in the “Crystal Bible” states ” Rose quartz is the stone of unconditional love and infinite peace.” She goes on to say “Emotionally, ROse Quartz is the finest healer. Releasing unexpressed emotions and heartacheand transmutingemotioanl conditioningthat no longer serves.”
Sounds delicious, right?
How about this gem also from Judy Hall ” This stone encourages self forgiveness and acceptance, and invokes self-trust and self-worth.”
On the MOHS hardness scale Rose Quartz comes in at a 7 so definitely hard enough.
This is a much underrated crystal and is another gem for self love but with a slightly different energy to Rose quartz.
Rhodonite is about helping you to appreciate and share your gifts and talents with the world.
Judy hHall has this to say “Rhodonite clears away emotional wounds and scars from the past.” She goes on to say “This stone has a strong resonance with forgiveness and asssits in reconciliation after longterm pain and abuse”
On the MOHS hardness scale it comes in at 5.5 – 6.5 so definitely a good stone to be using.
Carnelian is a great crystal for the sacral and base chakras due to its beautiful deep orangey, red colour. According to Robert Simmons it is good for the base, sacral and solar plexus chakras “Bringing in an influx of life force, sexual and creative energies, and assertive will.” I know when I have used it the ideas just come pouring in and I have to start implementing them right now.
He goes on to say “It is a powerful aid to those who wish to build their confidence, courage, passion and power.”
If you are looking for any kind of creative boost in your life or are lacking the motivation to carry out tasks this one is for you.
All entrepreneurs need this stone especially when they are launching products or programmes onto the market. Launching can be exhausting and maintianing momentum is paramount to get the job done. Carnelian will help keep you on track and inspired.
On the MOHS hardness scale carnelain comes in at 7.
If you want some of tthe same benefits of jade but without the hefty price tag Aventurine is the crystal for you. Robert Simmons describes it as ” a stone of “good luck” and is recommended for those who wish to manifest greate prosperity.” He also states that it” Is a stone of optimism and zest for life. ”
Aventurine is great for fresh, new beginnings.It balances the yin and yang of giving and receiving which is vital for women to understand. We have been taught that we are meant to give when in relaity we are meant to receive. aventurine helps to bring that back into balance.
On the MOHS hardness scale Aventurine is a 7.
