These are from my own personal experience. As a general rule, black crystals are naturally very protective because they’re extremely grounding. Purple crystals are psychically protective, and white crystals purify the energy around them. But here’s a comprehensive list:
⭐️Selenite - it’s such a high-vibration crystal that it resonates with the angelic realm, and known for being incredibly protective. Plus it’s really cheap! Yay! Buy raw pieces in bulk and place them in a grid around your personal space for powerful protection.
⭐️Sugilite - emanates the Violet Ray, which is highly protective against psychic attack, curses, hexes, and general negative energy.
⭐️Charoite - VERY powerful against inter- dimensional parasites, wonderful for wearing during astral travel. Keep by your bed to ward off nasty entities that like to feed on your energy. Think of it like a purple fire burning away all negative influence. It’s really amazing stuff.
⭐️Amethyst - well-known, easy to come by, and usually pretty cheap (just find real amethyst and not fake). Psychically protective, also very soothing. When you’re afraid, you tend to attract nasty entities, and so amethyst has the dual purpose of keeping you calm and feeling safe AND protecting you against negative energy.
⭐️Black tourmaline - the old standby for protection against negative energy, curses, malicious entities, and general feelings of being overwhelmed. Also easy to come by!
⭐️Hematite - another old favorite in the metaphysical community, good for keeping you grounded on earth, which in itself is protective. Regular black hematite is protective, but rainbow hematite has the added benefit of aligning your chakra column.
⭐️Magnetite - Same as hematite, but because it’s magnetic, I like to think of it like an energy trap that sucks in all the nasty energy around it. Cleanse it more often!
⭐️Labradorite - aside from being gorgeous, this stone is specifically protective during magickal practices. It can guard against magickal attack, curses, hexes, and general bad energy.
⭐️ Regular black stones you find outdoors are grounding, ESPECIALLY ones you find deep in the dirt. I can’t tell you how powerful it is to find your own magick materials. Since it’s been soaking up all that lovely earth energy, any dark-colored stone in the dirt will have protective qualities. Take it home, wash it, cleanse it, charge it, and familiarize it with your energy. You’ll be best buds, I promise! You don’t have to spend a dime on protective stones, if you don’t want to.
Experiment with some crystals yourself and see which ones make you feel grounded and safe. Hope this helps!
Hematite is coloured black to steel or silver-grey, brown to reddish brown, or red. It is mined as the main ore of iron. Varieties include kidney ore, martite (pseudomorphs after magnetite), iron rose and specularite (specularhematite).
@sixpenceee I recently found this material in a crystal store and I love it so much.
You have intense period pain? Tape a carnelian and hematite to your lower abdomen. It helps with pain and flow. Works like a charm! Don’t own a carnelian or hematite, or haven’t got a clue what they are? Tie an orange piece of clothing/scarf around your lower tummy area or cover yourself with an orange blanket or wear orange underwear and pants. It’s called colour therapy. Also works like a charm! 🍀😊☀

Hematite - the blue colour is as shot and is the result of an iridescent tarnish giving it a bright blue colour most noticeably on the edges. There are several spots in the image that show a deep red as the crystals are thin enough to transmit some light.

Hematite is one of the most common minerals. The colour of most red and brown rock, such as sandstone, is caused by small amounts of Hematite. It is also responsible for the red colour of many minerals. Non-crystalline forms of Hematite may be transformations of the mineral Limonite that lost water, possibly due to heat.
crystals_of_australia Watch this one til the end 💥 I’ll never forget the “woohooo!!” I heard across the hills the day this striking find was unearthed by @downunderprospector and @gailjago ⛏ I was digging on the other side of the mountain and wandered over when I heard the cheers and found them with a handful of these unique amethyst crystals capped with red hematite inclusions. What a find 🙌🏻
