Clear quartz, or pure quartz, is a translucent protection stone that has a wide array of variations and colors. One such famous colored variation is the rose quartz. Clear quartz is called the “master healer” because it resonates effortlessly with all the chakras. However, it resonates the strongest within the crown and third eye, the highest chakras.

It is ideal for positive people, because it amplifies your energy and thought. If you have faith that a dark crystal will absorb or repel dark spirits, it will enhance the effects of your other protection stone.

​What Stones Protect You From Evil Spirits?

Any dark protection stone can protect you from evil spirits. Our favorite protection crystals are black onyx, black tourmaline, black kyanite and pyrite, known colloquially as fool’s gold.


​Pyrite is often overlooked as a protection stone because it is not as dark as the other stones. It is most often recommended because of its abundant imbuing properties. Despite this, it is also highly effective at returning negative energy back to its senders. If you are being constantly bombarded with negative energy sent from evil spirits, pyrite will protect your energy field from receiving that dark, dangerous energy.

​Black kyanite is arguably the best protection crystal to protect your personal energy field. If you are centered and grounded, this will be highly effective. If you are not grounded, try meditating with protection crystals. Black tourmaline protects the environment around you, like your home or your room. It cleanses your surrounding area and you from stagnant or negative energy. Black onyx works closely with your root chakra to take any negative energy inside of you and transform it into positive energy. A strong root chakra will help you build up an emotional resilience to evil spirits and other negativity that might come your way.

How To Use Protection Stones

​There are several effective methods for using protection stones. People have been wearing amulets for thousands of years to safeguard their energy, spirit and physical wellbeing. But the protection of these stones is not just limited to your person.

Home Protection

​Create a protection grid from your home. Do this by creating a protective shield around your home with four pieces of black tourmaline around each of the exterior corners of the building. Putting salt and a piece of black tourmaline in a bowl of water near your front door will help you keep negativity outside of your home. If you do not want to put the tourmaline outside, put four in each corner of the room you want to protect, such as your bedroom or meditation room.

Personal Protection

Wear a protection stone in the form of a bracelet, ring, earrings or necklace. This jewelry will erect a protective shield around you throughout your day. If you are at work or another hectic place, step away for a moment. Find a peaceful space and use your hands to touch your protection amulet. This helps you meditate on your chakras and positivity and reconnect with your inner peace.

It is extremely important that you give each of your stones a job. Burn sage and use the smoke to cleanse the stones. Holding each stone in your hand individually, set an intention for the work you want your stone to do. You can do this by stating an affirmation aloud, like “I call forth divine protection.”

Meditation With Protection Amulets

​When you meditate with healing crystals, you imbue your body and spirit with the restorative properties of the crystals. To help you meditate, create a crystal body grid. Lie flat on the floor and put black onyx by your feet. This will connect to your root chakra. Next, put black tourmaline on your throat to cleanse your blocked energy and release tension. Place rainbow obsidian over your heart so your heart chakra can receive loving, purifying vibrations. Finally, hold a chunk of selenite in each of your hands.

​Cutting Attachments

Our energy field often feels the weight of experiences that our loved ones are suffering through. This leads to an energy attachment. To continue being a positive source of light and strength for our friends and family, we must first cut through our energy attachment with them. This prevents us from becoming drained and gives us the grounded strength and energy to be present for them completely when they need us the most

To cut energy attachments, hold a piece of black kyanite in your hand and trace an invisible line around your person. Move the crystal across the front, sides and back of your body. See with your third eye the cord attached to you and then visualize yourself cutting through the cord with the black kyanite. To help you, add an intention while you are doing this. For example, you may state aloud, I release this energy and with love and light send it back to *grieving friend’s name*. I am cleansed. 

​Our Favorite Protection Stones

Our favorite protection stones are black tourmaline for its ability to protect your surrounding environment, black onyx for strengthening your root chakra and fortitude and black kyanite for preventing evil spirits from overtaking you, sending the darkness back where it came from. If you are not yet grounded, meditate while lying flat on the floor with a crystal body grid around you.

If you already have a resilience, use protective crystals to meditate when you feel the negativity of others start to penetrate your defenses. You can buy protective crystals from a local purveyor or off of Amazon, but we have had the best luck off of Etsy. Remember, you control your own destiny and feelings on this journey through life. But you don’t have to do it alone. Protection crystals will help if you put your faith in them and let them work.
