5 Crystals That Protect You From Negative Energy

5 Crystals that Protect You from Negative Energy

Crystals are much more than pretty decor or eye candy. Each type has a unique energy signature, purpose, and specialty. Some crystals are useful for meditation and enlightenment. Others are popular for their powerful negative energy blasting abilities. Whether you wear them on your body or keep them around the home, these amazing stones are powerful protection crystals essential for overall wellness and vitality.

Black Tourmaline

This stone is known for its ability to positively transform and “cleanse” negative energy. Black Tourmaline is considered to be one of the most powerful protectors in the crystal world since it repels negative energy from the receiver and gives it back to the sender. Tourmaline can also remove energy blocks or stagnancies, including anxiety, fear, and stress. It corresponds with the base (root) chakra, so keep it close to the lower half of the body to help ground your energy. This is a great stone to place near electronics, as well, which can sap energy. The transmutative properties of Black Tourmaline are very intense, and it is one of the most highly sought-after members of the Tourmaline family.

Black Onyx

This smooth, dark crystal is known to protect its owner from harmful spirits, psychic attacks, and black magic. It’s theorized to capture and ground negative influences, acting as a shield of sorts. Black Onyx resonates with the root, solar plexus, and third eye chakras; helping to ground energy, increase confidence, and enhance intuition.

Place it on or near the forehead during meditation to enhance the experience, strengthen the third eye and further protect it from attack. Wear it on a necklace that reaches to the stomach to help heal ego-based fears and actions. This stone can ease environmental stresses and prevent the body from being drained of personal energy. This is a great stone for Reiki masters, energy healers, and lightworkers to keep around the massage table.


Although Jet is technically ancient petrified wood, it has powers of its own. This stone holds intense grounding properties. It can help its owner release unhealthy attachments, disconnect energetic cords, grudges, and ease grief. Jet protects against another’s negative thoughts, by preventing negative energy from infiltrating our own energy system. It’s associated with the root chakra due to its connection with wood; imbued with the ability to ground energy, ease anxiety, clear the mind, and ward off depression. This should be your go-to stone when you’re around people who you don’t get along with. It protects you from their negative energy and acts as a conduit to repair bad, draining, energetic connections. Some people place it underneath their pillow to encourage pleasant dreams and deep sleep.

Smokey Quartz

This enchanting crystal grounds and removes negative energy from the aura, and resonates with the base chakra. It can help protect your material objects and valuable possessions, such as money, vehicles, jewelry, etc. from theft or misuse. Smokey Quartz essentially absorbs negative energy and gives it to the earth, which eases burdens and anxiety. When put in a fearful position, hold this crystal in the palm of your hands, visualize giving it your heavy fears and burdens, and then place it on the dirt for transmutation. Some people like to pepper a few pieces of this crystal in their office or workspace since it discourages gossip and office drama while creating an ideal place to collaborate.


Hematite stones are known to create a protective environment around the body; a sort of reflective shield around the person who wears them. These stones are convenient for meditation since they can block out distractions and other focus disruptors. Crystals for negative thoughts like hematite create shields that reflect negative energies, thoughts, and feelings back to their source. And – you guessed it – this stone is beneficial for issues surrounding the root chakra. Irrational fears, worries about survival, and feelings of unsafety can be eased by this powerful stone.

In exploring the world’s most powerful healing crystals, you may have noticed a trend. Most of these stones are dark in color, and this is no accident! Black stones are considered to more powerfully “soak up” or deflect negative energy. In addition, all of these crystals resonate with the root chakra, as this energy center holds our link to the earth and our very survival. Without a strong anchor to mother earth, we’re more susceptible to negative energy.

Simply wear these gems on the body, use them during meditation, or keep them in busy areas of the home for overall peace and protection.

        If I can interject a tiny extra step... After smudging with sage, burn a little bit of Palo Santo. It smells Divine and I believe it's supposed to bring in the positivity after you smudge.

    I was searching for Black Toumaline and found your site to be very informative. My son is 21 and has bad tics. He does a hard sniffing tic and then puts pressure on his jaw that is causing nose bleeds and one cracked tooth. I have tried the conventional route only to find Drs only wanting to prescribe antipsychotic types of drugs that do not help at all plus they cause side effects that are horrible. Do you have any advice or suggestions for my son? I know it's a lot but I am so desperate to ease his suffering. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

    Am I understanding correctly, I need to carry BLACK TOURMALINE in order to remove negative energy? I picked up a piece and instantly felt different but I did not purchase at the time. I am going back in the next week or so to pick up after reading up on this. I feel like I have been surrounded by a negative energy both personally and my Real Estate business. I am hoping that this crystal will remove the stagnant negative energy I feel people are sending towards me. I never knew about this until I started reading up on why I felt different when I picked up the crystal to look at it.

    Hello Chris, I’ve just discovered this site a few minutes ago, and read your comment. I’m not a doctor, but I had been studying and using alternative medicine for the past 40 years. I might be wrong, but what you describe happening with you, sounds like a serious medical issue, that should be seen, tested, diagnosed and treated by a professional health care practitioner, like a gastroenterologist. In my humble opinion, that lizard might be an easily acquired parasitic infection, since childhood. Good luck, Paula

    What would you recommend for a massage therapist who is trying to delay the return of her incurable cancer? She is exposed to so much negative energy in her practice and certainly doesn’t want to return it her clients - she’s a healer! But she needs to protect herself from taken it in, too. I’m trying to come up with way to help shield her while still allowing her to provide the service the brings her joy and so much love and gratitude.
