Gemstones for Autumn or Fall - choosing the right gemstone for each season

Autumn Gemstones
Gemstones for the Autumn Season

The weather cools down, the light changes, the classic fall colors of orange, red and yellow fill the trees, Halloween and Thanksgiving approach – Autumn is here!

It is time to put away the breezy summer colors and get out some Autumn gemstones but what makes a perfect gemstone for the Fall season?

In selecting the best gemstones to wear in Autumn we based our choices on the classic fall colors, birthstones and a spiritual energy to help you through the shorter days and colder nights.

Our first choices reflect the autumnal palette perfectly.


The burnt orange to amber colors mean that this historic gemstone is a perfect match to the fall season plus carnelian has been considered a lucky stone since the time of the Ancient Egyptians.

Earthy tones of brown, green and amber are the base colors of this interesting gemstone but it is the flashes of pink, orange and red that really set Andalusite apart.

Fire Opal

This member of the Opal family is unlike its cousins as it rarely shows the color play that Opals are famous for but the deep, intense and ‘fiery’ oranges and reds will really catch the eye.

If you can imagine a forest of trees such as aspen or maple at the height of its spectacular autumn display you will picture the amber, burgundy and russet colors against a deep blue sky. Garnet is one gemstone type that can capture all these colors and we recommend three varieties that are ideal for the fall season:

Hessonite Garnet

Honey, cinnamon, burnt orange, no we are not in a bakery but Hessonite Garnets do look delicious and are so evocative of Autumn.

Spessartite Garnet

Fiery orange and mandarin colors mark out this Garnet specimen that comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes both faceted and cabochon cut.

Rhodolite Garnet

The name suggests rose-colored and much like the flower, this gemstone comes in gorgeous reds, violets, purples and every tone in between.

The variety of sizes and cuts for all these garnets make them perfect for all types of high quality jewelry items.

Then we have the traditional birthstones for this time of year which include:


Tourmalines are probably the most colorful variety of gemstones available and there will always be one that you will love. For this time of year the browns, oranges, golds and reds are ideal.

Sapphire is the September birthstone and comes in a number of colors that will match the early fall colors delightfully. Its spiritual strength and prestige make it a wonderful autumn gemstone.

Finally we have a couple of gemstones which have special spiritual significance for the autumn season.


Not only does citrine come in lovely autumnal yellow and orange colors but spiritually it is comforting and energizing which can be a great benefit as the days grow shorter and darker.

Ametrine is a combination of citrine and amethyst so gains spiritual strength from both of these powerful crystals. It inspires creativity and prevents depression which is very useful as the days draw in.
