Crystals for Protection

To protect your living space, just place the crystals on your front door or in the corners (if you want to take it up a notch). Now if you’re working in a destructive environment, just place a crystal for protection on your desk.

Here are some of our go-to crystals:

Black tourmaline

Black Tourmaline


You can use black tourmaline to ground yourself and your space. This means reconnecting you to the earth, helping you feel calm and collected despite the chaos outside. Also, it makes the energy neutral despite being bombarded with negativity.

Aside from its grounding and protective properties, you can use tourmaline crystals to clear away negative thoughts and patterns.

Smoky quartz

Smoky Quartz


Like black tourmaline, you can also use smoky quartz for grounding. Plus, this crystal can help protect your path towards manifesting your dreams.

You see, when we want something, it needs to transition from the ethereal world into the material world. Like when Robin Sharma said, “Everything is created twice, first in the mind.”

And so, when you have this so-called “Stone of Power” it can block any harmful energies that can come between you and your goals.

Quick trivia: smoky quartz has been hailed as the national gemstone of Scotland. Locals refer to it as ‘cairngorm’ for the Cairgorm mountains.

Blue lace agate

Blue Lace Agate


A highly durable blend of banded Chalcedony and quartz, this relatively rare crystal can give you a sense of calm and spirituality. Moreover, it was used in ancient Greek society to make healing amulets.

As for its protective powers, it may guard you against bad energy and psychic attacks, such as those coming from curses or spells.

Since it’s a crystal for the throat chakra, blue lace agate can help you speak your truth and harmonize your relationships with other people.


Black obsidian

Black Obsidian


If you’re looking to protect yourself from toxic people and the vibe they bring, you can use this stone that comes from cooled volcanic lava. In feng shui, black is connected to the water element and is associated with wisdom and fluidity.

As for using black obsidian for protection, you may wear it or carry it with you to take care of the negative energy.

Lapis lazuli

Lapis Lazuli


A stunning blue metamorphic rock, lapis lazuli was used in cosmetics and to stave off psychic attacks during ancient Egyptian times. Incredibly, crystal healing practices are still strong ( possibly even more popular) in the modern world.

It’s a strong stone of protection, reversing the effects of any negative energy coming your way.

Now, if you meditate, you could also place it in that area to heighten your self-awareness and intuition.




A common crystal for protection and stress relief, this alluring purple crystal can help you when people project their negative energy. Moreover, it’s handy for guarding you against ill wishes and stress.
