Why do you need protection crystals? The world is a dangerous place, and each of us faces our own challenges caused by outside influences every day. There are physical threats to our person from reckless drivers and muggers, but there are also less visible threats to our person. As we go about our day, we come into contact with a variety of people, and we pick up a bit of energy from all of them. This means we can pick up others’ negative energy and carry it with us. Keep reading to find out what protection crystals to use to protect yourself from these threats and how to use them!

1) Black Tourmaline

This is one of the first protection crystals that will be recommended to you at any crystal shop. This is a powerful protection stone. Black Tourmaline protects from negative energy and absorbs pain from the body. It is an excellent stone for spiritual protection as well.

2) Obsidian

Obisidan helps you ground yourself and protects you from negativity. When it feels like people just can’t leave you alone, and always have something negative to say about you, use obsidian to help brush off all of their hatred and negativity. Obsidian can also be used to help relieve the worry and fear caused by others’ actions.

Everywhere you look there are electronic devices, and every one of them releases EMF waves. Keep Shungite with you at all times to protect yourself.

4) Turquoise

Turquoise is not the first stone people think of when they think of protection crystals, but it is important. Turquoise is known for being a protection stone for travelers, so when you fly, drive, or sail keep a piece of turquoise with you.
