The power of crystals are good for many things, whether it be for attracting love, riches or peace of mind or body.

Many crystals are used for physical, psychic, spiritual, psychological or emotional protection. There are some crystals that can deliver a variety of protections!

Here are fourteen of the best crystals for protection:

#1 Smoky Quartz

Smoky Quartz Points

Smoky quartz is associated with the base and earth chakras and is used to protect the earth chakra below the feet. It protects against negative vibration and absorbs electromagnetic smog.

Smoky quartz is often just slightly radioactive and protects the body against illnesses related to radiation and the side effects of chemotherapy. Make sure that the stone is naturally irradiated. These stones are transparent with swirls of what look like smoke inside of them. Artificially irradiated crystals are black and opaque.

#2 Black Tourmaline

Large Black Tourmaline Specimens

Black tourmaline, or schorl is one of the most powerful of the crystals for protection. It protects against the electromagnetic smog from cell phones and other devices and is excellent protection against psychic attack, hexes, ill will and all kinds of negative energies.

#3 Amber

Amber Stones

Amber is an interesting mineral because it is actually fossilized resin as opposed to a mineral formed in or on the earth. Sometimes it contains bits of vegetation or insects that died millions of years ago. It protects the body against negative influences and promotes healing.

#4 Jet

Like amber, jet is a type of fossil. In this case, it is fossilized wood. Jet is black, resembles coal and can be polished into beads to be worn as jewelry. It is especially effective if it is set in silver. Jet protects you against violence, illness and the perils of spiritual journeying. It also protects you against dark entities and guards your business against financial instability.

#5 Fluorite

Fluorite Spheres

Fluorite comes in several colors, including clear, green, purple, blue, brown or yellow. It is highly protective of your psychic abilities and helps you figure out if you're being manipulate by outside influences either psychically or mentally. It also protects you against stresses caused by electromagnetism and working at your computer for hours at a time. Green fluorite is especially good at absorbing and protecting you against negative energy.

#6 Lepidolite

This crystal protects you against electromagnetic smog and is best placed on your computer. It is especially powerful in its mica-form. Lepidolite also protects you against depression and insomnia.

#7 Fire Agate

With its deep connection to the earth, the fire agate protects you against hexes and ill-wishing. It actually forms a protective force field around your body and bounces harm back to its source. This makes the source of the hex understand the harm it's trying to cause.

#8 Amethyst

Opal Aura Amethyst

Amethyst is a purple semi-precious gemstone, which has long been said to protect against drunkenness. Besides that, it is a powerfully protective stone with an elevated spiritual vibration. It protects you against psychic attack and all kinds of negative energies. It also protects against recurrent nightmares.

#9 Angelite

Angelite Spheres

This blue and white crystal connects you, as its name implies, to the angelic realm. It protects both the environment and your body. It's especially potent when taken as an elixir. To make an elixir of angelite, place a cleansed piece of the crystal in a bowl of spring water. Place it in sunlight for 12 hours then decant it into a bottle with a tight cork stopper.

#10 Cat's Eye

This is a type of chrysoberyl that has a mineral called rutile in it. Filaments of rutile line up within the crystal, and give it the look of a cat's eye. It protects your aura from negative energy and brings happiness, confidence and good luck. Cat's eye chrysoberyl is best worn on the right side of your body.

#11 Boji Stone

Boji stones can be male or female. Female boji stones are smooth and metallic, and male boji stones have protrusions. Most boji stones are found in Kansas. They are powerful grounding stones and help overcome spiritual, physical and psychological blockages. They facilitate out-of-body experiences and protect your body as your soul travels.

#12 Carnelian

Carnelian Spheres

Carnelian comes in colors of red, pink, orange or brown and is often found as a river-tumbled pebble. In antiquity, it was used to protect the dead on their journey to the beyond. It protects you against envy, resentment and rage, whether it is coming from you or from other people. If you place a carnelian stone near your front door, it turns away bad luck and invites in abundance.

#13 Iron Pyrite

Also called "fool's gold," because of its sparkle, iron pyrite is an excellent shield against negative energies. It guards against all types of pollution including diseases. If you wear iron pyrite around your neck, it will protect your subtle and physical bodies from harm.

#14 Sardonyx


This beautiful stone attracts good fortune, and if it is placed around the house and garden, it protects the property from crime. Put a stone at each corner of the house and at the windows and doors. To make sardonyx's protective properties even more effective, place a large specimen just outside the front door.
