Six Great Crystals to Help Reduce Stress

by Ron & Sue Windred on October 18, 2013

Stress seems to be a fact of life for many of us in today’s busy society. Modern technology, societal expectations and      modern work-life along with financial and family concerns all take their toll on our physical and emotional selves. A little too much so, some would say!

Crystals can provide a gentle, natural and effective way to deal with these stresses and cope better in our daily lives.

While it is true that there are many crystals that will do the job, I thought we could look at what may be considered the top six.

All round stress relief; Amethyst

Physical stress relief; Clear Quartz

Financial stress; Citrine

Emotional stress; Lepidolite

Nervous stress; Muscovite

Relationship stress; Rose Quartz


Amethyst has a great calming and comforting influence. It is very protective and inspirational, radiates divine love and promotes emotional centering. Amethyst will also help you think and act at your highest level. An Amethyst cluster in the home or at your workplace is ideal to transmute negative energy, or carry a tumble stone in your pocket. Wear an Amethyst pendant to prevent migraine and to reduce tension headaches.

Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz is the most powerful all-round healing and energy amplifier on the planet. It strengthens your personal power helping to deflect depleting negative energies. Clear Quartz can be worn as a crystal pendant to help fortify your energy and it will also deflect radiation from your body. Clear Quartz is an excellent general physical system fortifier and protector. It also increases mental clarity. Try holding a clear crystal at your solar plexus and breathe evenly for a few minutes to calm your emotions, relax the body, clear the mind, and to refresh your energy. Clusters placed in your environment are also very beneficial as well as carrying a tumble stone in your pocket.

Citrine is known as an Abundance and Wealth Stone and also as a Success Stone; it encourages a bright attitude as it attracts wealth and joy. Keep a piece in your wallet or cash tin to enrich your holdings. Citrine is joyous, warm and energizing. Raises self esteem, stimulates mental focus. It can help stabilize your emotions and soothe family problems. Absorbs, transmutes, dissipates and grounds negative energy.




Lepidolite is a gentle, loving, soothing stone that calms the heart and mind. It eases the emotions and relieves anxiety, stress and worry and dissipates negativity. Balances the nervous system and wards off depression. Lepidolite is uplifting and balancing Inducing love, self-love and trust.




Muscovite can lessen insecurities and self-doubt and help you to look to the future with optimism. It can also increase self-confidence and reduce nervous stress and physical tension. It is, therefore, a good stone to have close by you when you are dealing with life changes. Muscovite heals any condition resulting from distress. It can help you to accept imperfections in yourself and others and to identify that what irritates you in another is often what you don’t like in yourself, frequently a cause of nervous tension.



Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz known as The Love Stone is very protective and soothing for many issues.  It balances, heals and rejuvenates the emotions, cools hot tempers, clears stored anger, guilt and jealousies. Rose Quartz encourages compassion and harmony and allows you to become more receptive and open to challenges. Place a piece at your Heart centre for 10 minutes or so to relax after a stressful day.
