9 Protection Crystals You Need For Your Collection

9 Protection Crystals You Need For Your Collection

When it comes to crystal healing and the spiritual community in general, we open ourselves up to an array of energies, whether they come from the people around us, current events, our living situation, our stressful jobs, and even negative energies from across the veil. So some of the most important crystals in our collections should have protective qualities to keep these energies from affecting us as much as possible.

Here are a few protection crystals that will do the job broken up into three categories of exactly how they protect you from negative energies. Some block or repel negative energies, some absorb the negative energies so you don’t have to, and some transmute the negative to positive.



The first on pretty much any list of protection crystals is good ol’ black tourmaline! By blocking negative energies, this stone can help protect you against outside negative energies as well as your own negative energies such as anxiety, self-criticism, fear, and stress by cleansing and protecting your auric field.



Commonly used as mirrors in ancient times before manmade glass was established, this volcanic glass aids in protection, grounding, and spiritual communication. Not only does it reflect the negativity back at itself, but it also cleanses any negative energy already within you. Obsidian helps you become aware of the shadow aspects of yourself that could be contributing to your situation. While black obsidian is the most common and the strongest of the obsidians when it comes to protection, all forms of obsidian (Snowflake, Gold Sheen, Silver Sheen, Mahagony, Rainbow, etc.) work in this way.


A popular stone for warriors on the battlefields, red jasper is a highly protective stone of empowerment, bringing strength to resist emotional domination by others. Red Jasper can re-activate a passion for living when one is feeling blue or unemotional, apathetic, or spiritually defunct, and is commonly used to spark sexual or creative energies. It is an exceptional grounding stone and helps with our connection to the earth.





Shungite is the most powerful stone for protecting us against harmful electromagnetic frequencies which can contribute to many physical, mental, and emotional issues. Since ancient times, Shungite has been said to absorb and eliminate anything that is harmful to human life, both physically and metaphysically.  Shungite is a must-have for people with difficult and uncontrollable emotions and allows for light to fill the body and negativity to be removed. Shungite naturally has electrical conducting properties that help inhibit electromagnetic radiation that is produced by all common household electronics. Placing Shungite at the base of the electronic or on the back of your phone will help drastically reduce the radial output without interfering with the operations.


Hematite is one of the most grounding and protective stones on the planet. It helps refocus your thoughts and actions into those that matter to you most while guiding you on the right path. It promotes healthy circulation and is an important stone for empaths, absorbing negative energy so you don’t have to. Keep in mind if wearing hematite as jewelry, it is very common for it to break after absorbing too much negative energy, so this is one you most likely will need to replace often.



Labradorite has a lot of uses, and, in addition to its mesmerizing beauty, it’s no wonder why it’s one of the most popular crystals! Labradorite calms an overactive mind and brings forgotten memories to light while helping you reach a deeper spiritual consciousness. It also creates a shield around your aura, filtering out the negative energy from getting into your energy field so your cocoon is safe from harm as you blossom into your true self. This is a stone of magic, transformation, and protection and a must-have for every collection.




My all-time favorite crystal also happens to be a super protective one! Smoky quartz relieves fear, stress, anxiety, depression, and fatigue and helps you tolerate difficult times. A very protective stone, smoky quartz offers grounding and stability, absorbing and transmuting negative energies from outside sources and from within. I wear smoky quartz daily to transmute the energies from the people around me, and to hopefully leave the energy better than I found it wherever I go!


Tiger’s Eye is highly beneficial for balancing the mind and emotions, bringing focus and stability. It helps heal issues of self-criticism and increases your personal will to affect positive change. It brings sharpness to one’s inner vision and a better understanding of the cause and effect of situations. The perfect stone for boosting willpower and confidence, tiger’s eye helps you stand your ground and say “No”, and lets your stay true to who you are while in the presence of negative energy.


A powerful protection stone, black onyx absorbs and transforms negative energy into positive. It fosters wise decision-making and can provide support for self-discipline issues while aiding in the development of emotional and physical strength and stamina.
