Protection from negative energy is something that is always on our minds. But with the placement of a few strategic crystals, you can secure your space and ensure your energy is always clear of negativity.

My Top 10 Stones to use for Protection include:


My all-time favourite protective stones are a combination of Black Tourmaline and Selenitethese stones act as a double action protection crystal combination and can be used to block and purify negative energy. This one is great for creating a more positive living space and work environment. Black Tourmaline is a powerful protector stone with the ability to ground a space and clear it of negativity, while Selenite has the ability to unblock stagnant energy and remove negative energy. Selenite is also great at clearing negativity and charging crystals, so the Black Tourmaline and Selenite combination really is a powerhouse in their protecting abilities.

Place a piece of each crystal in each corner of a room to grid the space and create a calm and peaceful space free from negative energy. Also keep a piece of each stone next to your computer to block and remove negative energy.


Black Tourmaline is a powerful stone for protection against negative energy of all kinds, as well as strengthening the immune system and providing spiritual grounding. It encourages positive attitudes, good luck and happiness and helps you to let go of negativity, self-doubts or feelings of anxiety. Black Tourmaline does not absorb negativity, rather it transmutes negative energy into positive energy, always raising the vibration of the area it is in.

Either wear black tourmaline during the day or place a few stones in the bedroom. Put a stone under your pillow or grid your bed with one stone on each corner of your mattress to cleanse your etheric body while you sleep. To clear negativity from your living space, place black tourmaline by the front door.


Tourmaline Quartz has strong metaphysical properties which encourages a large amount of light to encircle your body and provides healing on many levels. The combination embodies both the energy of Black Tourmaline and the strong vibration of Clear Quartz, which amplifies the Tourmaline energy. Tourmaline Quartz has a strong spiritual grounding energy and potent psychic protection abilities, which are amplified by the Clear Quartz. It has a powerful ability to clear your auric field of negativity and provides a powerful protective field of energy, to keep you safe, and shield you from harm. It is also an excellent environmental cleanser as it amplifies the vibration of the Black Tourmaline out into the environment where it transmutes any negativity and creates positive feelings.


Jet is used as a protection stone, but also for grounding and healing purposes, including pain relief and enhanced healing of injuries. It works as an energetic filter to purify energy and clear the aura of impure energies. Jet can be used to cleanse other crystals and facilitates the release of negative emotion. Jet is particularly useful to empaths who suffer from exposure to negativity in the environment as it draws out the negative emotions to alleviate and dispel them. Jet integrates higher vibrations into the lower chakras and brings a soothing sense of wholeness.


Obsidian is intensely protective stone, shielding against physical and emotional negativity. It carries a calming and positive energy and is a powerful cleanser of psychic smog created within your aura. It blocks psychic attack, absorbs negative energies from the environment and draws out mental stress and tension.  It helps you to release any negativity and can cut through illusions, lies, fears and blockages. Obsidian has the ability to draw in negative energy, thus protecting the wearer or the surroundings in which it is placed. It is used to help one become more grounded, focused and clear in all practical matters. It acts to remove any built-up negativity caused by your own or others anger, fear and resentment, as well as aiding you to remove any negative attachments. Obsidian dissolves emotional blockages and ancient traumas and promotes the qualities of compassion and strength. It releases imbalances and negative energies, repels negativity and disperses unloving thoughts.


Smokey Quartz is strongly protective and is great at grounding and providing psychic protection.

It aids in cooling down the mind and emotions and alleviating a multitude of physical, mental and emotional imbalances. The strong healing energy of Amethyst can transmute lower vibrations to higher frequencies, transforming negative energy to love energy.


Fluorite helps guard one from picking up negative energies.  It cleanses and stabilizes the aura and is extremely effective against computer and electromagnetic stress.
