So far, we have talked about very common, popular crystals to give as gifts that you can easily obtain in many different shapes and forms. Turritella Agate, on the other hand, is a relatively uncommon gemstone and a very special gift!
These minerals include tiny fossils, which give them a very distinct look.
Turritella Agate has a deep connection to the earth and to our heritage. That makes it an ideal gift for people interested in history and those who are very active in caring for our planet.
I also found it to be one of the best gifts to give my dinosaur-loving child! Crystals are a great gift idea for children. Kids are fascinated by all stones, but especially by those looking as beautiful and special as turritella agate.
And since stones are almost unbreakable, the crystals we get as children often accompany us far into adulthood, as talisman or fond memory.
Another uncommon gem that makes a wonderful crystal gift is Caribbean Calcite!

Birthstones as Crystal Birthday Gifts
One of my favorite gifts, especially for children and new moms, are birthday crystals! This is a fool-proof way to pick the perfect crystal to give as a gift (although it isn’t necessarily a good idea to try and give one of these at a baby shower since babies like to come in their own time, haha).
Each month has a corresponding healing crystal that works well for people born in that month.
For people born in January, choose garnet.
Amethyst is the birthstone for February.
The birth crystal for March is aquamarine.
April’s birthstone is the diamond.
If you are looking for a crystal birthday gift for those born in May, pick emerald.
Pearl is the June birthstone, together with alexandrite. You can choose here which you like better or which fits the gift recipient better.
The July birthstone is ruby.
For those born in August, choose peridot.
September’s birthstone is sapphire.
The birthstones for October are opal and tourmaline.
For November, the birthstones are topaz and citrine.
And lastly, for people born in December, choose turquoise or blue topaz.
To add even more meaning to a birthstone gift, look up the properties of the crystal so you can tell the gift recipient a bit more about what the stone symbolizes and how you hope it will support them.
More Crystal Gift Ideas
My partner gave me a crystal gift over a decade ago, and it reignited my own love for stones! It was a little handmade Zen garden with beautiful white sand and a tiny rake. He included several raw crystals and figurines that I could place on the sand.
He had printed out a profile for each stone. I was going through a rough time health-wise, and the crystals mirrored how I was feeling.
It was the most wonderful gift for me, and I kept it for a long time!
While I don’t have the sand anymore, the crystals are still right in front of me, on my desk, and I look at them fondly each and every day.
Because that’s the thing, giving crystals as gifts has so much meaning! It tells your loved one that you see them, and since stones are (almost) timeless, it will remind them for a long time to come that someone cares for them and sees them. And isn’t that what we all wish for?!
As I mentioned earlier, crystals are a gift that works for any budget! Thoughtfully chosen pocket stones or beaded bracelets are fantastic yet cheap crystal gifts that anyone would appreciate.
If you want to and are able to spend a more considerable sum of money, you can look into elaborate crystal jewelry with gold or silver. Or you can take a look at geodes, large raw crystals, or figurines.
While, on the material side, you have such a range of options, I feel that the actual crystal you choose is so personal and individual, which is the most crucial part of giving a meaningful gift!
If you are now wondering where to start looking for the best crystal gift, and if you don’t have a local gem shop, check out Etsy! Many stores around the country offer their gemstones there as well.
