Looking for crystals for depression or feeling down in the dumps? These 7 healing crystals will help absorb negative energies and lift your mood. Let these stones elevate your mind to a more positive place.
Please Note: Although crystals help many people, they are not a substitute for proper medical treatment or a cure. Always seek help from your doctor or licensed medical practitioner for depression. Always use crystals in conjunction with any other prescribed treatments.
Now that is said, what are the best crystals for depression or feeling down? I get asked this question a lot. Depression is not an easy thing to deal with, whether you suffer from it yourself or have a friend or loved one that is currently battling. When you’re depressed or just feeling down, your vibration is low and that is something crystals can help with.
Crystals for depression and feeling down
There are many stones you could try, but these are a few that are at the top of my list. A polished Tumble Stone or Crystal Point can be carried with you throughout the day in a small bag in your pocket. A larger crystal if available can be placed in your home, somewhere you spend lots of alone time in. Start with a small crystal and then if you find that it is helping, you could invest in a bracelet or pendant if you prefer.
Citrine or Smoky Citrine
Please use natural Citrine as it is much more effective. Citrine helps absorb negative energy, while bringing positive energy into the aura. It can help develop a more positive mindset. Smoky Citrine is not so easy to find but worth seeking out. It is natural Citrine that has a light or dark smoky hue to it, or even a smoky Phantom formation inside. Smoky Citrine is a very powerful mood lifter with a deeply detoxifying effect.

Sunstone is peachy orange pink in colour and may have glittering sparkles inside. This stone is also a great mood lifter. It will infuse your emotional body with a lighter energy, leading to a more positive outlook. It is quite gentle to use if you find some crystals too strong for you.
