Crystals for peace and calm could help you better handle stress or life challenges. Discover seven calming crystals to assist you in inviting more peaceful energy and tranquillity into your life or home.
Working With Crystals For Peace and Calm
I’ve put together a selection of seven of my favourite crystals for peace and calm. They all give off soothing and calming energies and can be used in any way you wish.
Find a crystal that seems like a good fit, that you are drawn to and is available to you. You can carry the stone on you, wear it in jewellery or place it in your home.
TIP: It may be helpful to handle your crystal like a worry stone. A Tumble Stone is ideal for this. When you need a calm booster, reach for your crystal, hold and tranquillity it. If you’re able to, also look at the colour and details of your stone. tranquillity all connects you with the energy of your crystal.
“Crystals for peace and calm are a great addition to meditation, breathing exercises, Yoga or any stress reducing and calming practice.”
Crystal Care & Intentions
Make sure you cleanse the crystal before use and cleanse it regularly if you are using it often. I also find things work much better with crystals when I infuse them with my intentions. Learn more about that in How To Program a Crystal if you’re interested.
CRYSTALS FOR PEACE & CALM:
Blue Lace Agate
It’s hard not to lose yourself in the ripples of lavender blue! This form of layered blue and white Agate is so soothing and tranquil. It is becoming more expensive, especially the larger pieces but well worth adding to your crystal collection if you don’t have it.
Candle Quartz is sometimes known as Pineapple Quartz but should not be confused with Spirit Quartz. This is a formation of milky white Snow Quartz that grows into broad crystal points. The sides are characterised by their ‘melted wax’ appearance caused by the merging of multiple crystal points.
Due to its shape and size, Candle Quartz is better for holding while meditating or placed inside the home. It emits a peaceful spiritual vibration and energy that supports relaxation and inner peace.
This is a well loved and essential stone for anyone into crystal healing. Soft pink Rose Quartz has calming and soothing energy. Its loving energies are comforting, soft and gentle. Another tactile stone that is easy to find and affordable enough to have several forms.
Amazonite ranges from pale green to blue-green and may have lighter or white banding. Some stones show grey or black markings caused by the inclusion of Smoky Quartz. This useful crystal balances your energy and brings inner peace. Amazonite helps release stress and supports the personal healing journey.
For peace and calm, I recommend the traditional green, blue-green, lavender or white varieties of Jade (aka Nephrite Jade or Jadite). The shade of colour and clarity varies greatly but it usually has a waxy look. Jade carries meditative peaceful energy and encourages calmness and tranquillity on our life path.
Please be aware that Jade is often faked or mis-sold, so always buy from a reputable seller and ask questions. High-quality Jade is not cheap.
This well-known stone ranges from sky blue to blue-green. It is always opaque and may have brown mottling or veins. Turquoise is a deep stress reducer and helps find your place of inner peace. Like Jade, some other stones are often dyed to look like Turquoise. Just remember genuine Turquoise is never cheap these days.
Aquamarine comes in two colours, either a blue or a sea green. It ranges from opaque to completely transparent gem quality varieties. Aquamarine has a cleansing and calming aura. This is a very relaxing water element stone. More opaque and translucent stones may have white veins and are much more affordable.
