Learn how to make a Home Protection Crystal Grid to protect your home from negative energies and create a sanctuary. Block harmful psychic energies from entering a room or your house with this simple but effective Black Tourmaline Crystal Grid.
Why Protect Your Home?
Your home should feel safe and secure. Some people experience problems from negative energy leaking into their home either from shared accommodation, other apartments, the neighbourhood nightmare neighbours
If you have experienced a Psychic Attack or are Empathic you should have a Home Protection Crystal Grid in place. This grid will be your first line of spiritual defence before anything has the chance to get near you. So let’s get to it!

What You Will Need:
4 Large or Medium sized Black Tourmaline Crystal Points. If unavailable you can use the Raw Chunks or Tumble Stones.
1 Large or Medium sized Red Tiger’s Eye (aka Dragon’s Eye). If unavailable you can use Golden Tigers Eye.
Raw Black Tourmaline Point
Red Tiger’s Eye also known as Dragon’s Eye
Simple Crystal Grid Activation Method
If you already know how to activate a Crystal Grid, feel free to use your prefered method. Otherwise, to keep things nice and easy, I am going to show you a really simple method to activate the grid. Activation programs or charges the crystals with your intention, so they can begin to do their work for you.
All you need are 4 Black Tourmaline Crystals and a Red Tigers Eye
3. Raise your crystals up in front of your Third Eye Chakra (brow area).
4. Focus on your desired result, use visualisation and emotion. Say to yourself or out loud a statement of your intention like “I program this Crystal Grid to protect my …………….. and all who live here from all forms of harm.”
5. Lastly arrange your crystals into position (see below).

Setting Up Your Home Protection Crystal Grid
Now that your crystals are programmed and charged with your intention, all you have to do is arrange them. Please see the diagram above. If you have more than one floor, use the ground or lowest floor for the grid. With irregularly shaped floor plans, you may need to get more crystals to grid the extra corners.
If your ground floor is not the biggest floor then you can either grid the widest floor or you may want to grid all floors. You can also bury the Black Tourmaline crystals outside if you have a garden. I recommend putting them in glass jars to protect them from water damage and so they can be retrieved later if needed.

(1) In position 1 place a Black Tourmaline Crystal Point at each of the four corners of your home or a room, standing up or pointing outwards.
(2) In position 2 place the Red Tiger’s Eye crystal near your main entrance or door. Ideally, it should be just inside and visible.
If you have any questions about this grid just post them in the comments below (Please keep any questions you have on topic if you want a response).
Do you mean placing a tourmaline in each corner of the room with your from door or making a small grid next to your front door?
Hi Tina, each Black Tourmaline crystal is placed in one of the four corners of the home to protect the boundaries of the house or home. If you just want to protect a single room then you would use the four corners of the room.
Thank you. Just purchased your book so am waiting for it to arrive.
Thank you so much Tina, there is much more detail in the book about this and other grids. Hope you enjoy it 🙂
I’m quite lucky that my home is already protected and I can call my stones from where ever I am. Even people who come to visit can not see my altar.
when you say call your stones do you mean to get their energy to you when you are away from them?
Technically yes but I can feel when they want me. I never ask anything from them which gives me a better connection. They give off smells when they want my attention when I’m at home. When I’m at work and they are calling, they give off a high frequency that gives my husband (who works at home) a heavy pressure in his head which he is not happy about.
Ages ago I ask you about a name they call me by and whether it was common or heard of.
Will this grid work if my home has already been invaded by uninvited guest?
Will this grid also work if my home has already been invaded by uninvited guest?
It should do, make sure you space clear your home thouroughly before setting up the grid
Thank you very much. This is all new to me so i’ll look in to it right away.
Hello, do the black tourmaline have to go on the floor, or can they go on units? The corner of our kitchen has a washer in a built in cupboard, which if I put behind it then machine won’t fit back. Could I place it above it in the corner? Then the other corner is a bathroom which I worry children might move, could I put in a plant pot in the corner? Wondering if they all have to be on the floor at same level or can go on units or in cupboards at various levels, and if it’s ok to put one in soil but not the other 3.
Sorry that’s so long. Very new to this! Thank you
Hi Simone, you can place them anywhere in that area, on or under things, hidden inside a box or a jar. They do not need to be on the floor or at the exact same height. Make it work for you and your home.
Thank you so much for replying Ethan. That’s brilliant, makes things a lot easier!
i have used black tourmaline in the 4 corners of our home for years and it works great! mine is a bit different thought with a large hunk of rose quartz and a large black tourmaline crystal at the door. i like your red tigers eye at the door so i will have to add that to the other crystals and see how it feels. thanks for sharing your wisdom with us.
Thank you. Yes there are lots of variations on this grid, this is just my version of it from Crystal Grids Power. I hope you like the Red Tiger’s Eye!
Awesome blog Ethan LOVE IT thank you so much. How often do I need to cleanse my crystal grid please?? Thanks!
Good question! Its personal but I think once a month is a good idea.
Hi my home is an L shape downstairs but square upstairs. How can I set this up so the whole house is covered? Thanks
You could work with the downstairs but place one Black Tourmaline in the missing corner, outside in the garden to make the square. Or alternitively put the Tourmaline on the upstairs level if it encompasses the entire home. If that still does not seem to work then grid the tourmalines on each level. The L shape can be made with 6 crystals if you place at all the corners. The other stone should still be by the front door.
My house has a wing that juts out on one side. Would I do the same thing front and back at the “missing” corners? The entire property is almost an acre and it is an odd shape, it sounds like just forming a square around the house is the way to go? i also have just gotten your book, will look it up there.
There is no right answer. The easiest way to grid is to form a square that covers everything like you said. Some people will go with the outer corners of irregular shaped houses adding more stones than four. Both will work.
Do I need to include an attached garage?
It’s up to you. I personally would only work within the living space, but if you grid your garden then everything also would be included.
Okay!!! Thank You very much!!
I smudged my apartment and then placed black tourmaline in as following:
I have a 2 bedroom apartment and I have a black tourmaline in the corner of each room.
I do customer support from my home and have a large black tourmaline on my desk especially good with angry customers I have found. I also carry a black tourmaline in my pocket each time I leave the house.
Hello, I was given two black tourmaline stones and two amethyst stones to bury around our new property in the ground. But I can’t get a hold of her to find out how she intended to place them as a grid. Do you any suggestions?
I can’t be sure what she intended and this is not my grid. I would just use the four corners of the property. Alternate the stones, one Black Tourmaline and one Amethyst as you go around.
Thank you. Her intention, I believe, was for protection. But I wasn’t sure if having the amethyst could be part of the four corners for protection. This is all very new to me, and I’m very intrigued by crystal grids. I think I would be interested in your book.

I live in an apartment. It’s a one bedroom. I think my space is 30 feet by 30. The only room I have a problem with is the bathroom. The wall on that side is where the tub is. I have a tourmaline in the corner of my kitchen the the living room corner by the balcony then one in my bedroom in the far corner then in the bathroom between the bathtub and toilet on the floor. I placed the red tiger eye by the door opening.
Should I place the gem in the bathroom in a jar?
I think a jar is a good idea Patty, with it being a wet room.
I am going to make this protection grid for my house. Three of the corners are OK. One corner is my kitchen countertop wall. I have my microwave in this particular corner. No way to change it to any other place since my kitchen is very tiny and don’t a lot of counter space. We had talked before about EMFs and electrical current affecting grids. Is this going to be a problem if I place the Tourmaline in this corner next to the microwave? The bottom part of the countertop is the dishwasher that I NEVER!!!! use. I use it as an extra place to keep things. Can I place it inside the dishwasher? I am going to order your book from Amazon today.
You know Amelia some people used Black Tourmaline to shield against EMFs. I think you have to work with what you have got and just see how things work for you. When doing these large Location based grids, there will always be electricals around and within them. It is more of an issue with the smaller grids.
Thank you so much for your response, Ethan.
Have a great day!!!!!!
just wondering if the red tiger eye must be in a specific shape or if a pendant would work as well as a oval like the one you showed in your photo.
Also, in order to place the tourmaline, would I have to include also the garden or just the inside of the house?
Do I consider only the 4 main outermost corners or (having the house an irregular shape) do I use more than 4 corners?
Sorry for the many questions, I hope you have a great day! 🙂
Hi Sara, no it can be any shape really. Some shapes are good for protection but this isn’t an easy stone to find. Use what you have available to you. The other questions you asked have been answered a few times above if you look through the comments on this blog post.
I was ready to make my protection grid with the tourmaline and the red tiger eye. Then I see that you said tourmaline points. I got tourmaline rough stones. Do they have to be points ? Some of the stones I got can pass as points.
Hi Amy, I have updated the blog post with other options. Those raw chunks of Black Tourmaline are sections of the crystal points, so are also suitable if you can’t get whole points.
Thank you Ethan. Have a great day!!!!!
I am finally going to do my Protection grid today. I have a question about individual rooms. Since my place is pretty small, if I want to do a protection grid for a particular room; one of the corners of that room already has Black tourmaline from the house protection grid. Do I do two individual tourmalines in that corner, (one for the house grid and one for the room grid) or the same tourmaline in that particular corner can be use for both grids?
Thank you in advance,
It depends on you. Technically both grids are two separate grids, so maybe they should not share a stone. One corner would have 2 crystals.
Thank you Ethan. I would do a separate stone for the room grid.
Can I use black tourmaline at the four corners outside the house, bury in the soil without the jars, so I don’t have to clean it once a month? Or, can I put black tourmaline and with something else like selenite or quartz, so can the quartz or selenite clean the black tourmaline by itself without me cleaning it every month, is that possible?
Black Tourmaline buried in the wet earth will deteriorate, which is why I recommend jars. If these jars are buried outside the earth should cleanse them. I don’t believe any crystals are self-cleansing, so I would not rely on Selenite. To be honest cleansing your home once a month is a really good idea and has so many benefits for your environment.
When you say the black tourmaline should be standing up or pointing outwards, how do you mean? My tourmaline has flat sides and kind of pointed ends; so they will not stand….. Should I lay them on their side caddie corner to the corner or should I point an end to the corner? Thank you so much!
Yes, you can point the end out towards the corner.

I have been looking for red tigers eye Haven’t had any luck yet. I got a brown tigers eye sphere..but no red one. Please if possible suggest a secondary stone. It might not be as powerful but gets the work done.. awaiting your input.
As it says in the blog post you can substitute that stone with regular Tiger’s Eye (Gold/brown), it will still work.
Thank you Ethan I am all set for the protection grid..with my tourmaline chunks and tiger eye sphere.
What would I do if one of the 4 points of my home is a shower and another is a bench top?
You have to work with the space you have, things won’t be the same level in most peoples homes. Go as close the corner as possible but dont worry if you cant. For the bathroom, you could also place the crystal in a glass jar to stop it getting wet or damp.
I have more than one door in the ground floor of my house. Would it work to put two separate tigers eye, one at the front door and one at the back?
If you want to, what the grid is really targeting is your main entrance.
I really just want to thank you for putting this out in such an easy to use form on the internet. I didn’t have an interest in working with my crystals this way. I just love them. Recently I had a painful physical need to begin placing protection. Miraculously I received relief within moments. I never poo pooed grids verbally to others but I just didn’t want to go there. I’m very greatful! Without making this note too long I must just say this is a Godsend. May you receive a thousand fold in your kindness of helping others in this way. Now I’m on the road to understand why and how this works…… it’s wonderful to learn new things!
Thanks so much Dorinda
Pingback: What To Do After You Make a Crystal Grid - Ethan Lazzerini
Good afternoon Ethan,
Can I use this same grid at the corners of my property instead of the house (its a couple of acres) or is a different grid required or different crystals?
Yes you can do it that way too. I would recommend you place the Black Tourmaline in sealed jars as it can be damaged by water.
Does it matter what size tourmaline you use? Can you put small chips above doors and on window sills or should they be bigger pieces? I saged my house before ,but didnt have black tourmaline to put into the 4 corners ,should I sage again before setting up my grid?,
Hi, for gridding the house I recommend medium to larger pieces of Black Tourmaline wherever possible. You can use little stones and chips around the house but its not great for grids which use numerology. Cleansing before you set up a grid is a good idea but not essential, you can cleanse afterwards if you’re in a hurry.
Thank you so much for this post. Before finding this post on a protection crystal grid, I ordered a larger black tourmaline crystal piece that is on a wood stand. I’m trying to figure out if there is still a way to incorporate this piece in the grid? Thanks again for your insight!
It could be one of the Black Tourmaline crystals for a grid if you want to use it.
We are preparing to build a new home. Would it be appropriate to place the black tourmaline within the corners of the foundation as the house is being constructed? I really would like to include something permanent in the foundation. Thanks!
Yes, you can do that if you are able to. I hope you enjoy your new home!
Could I put the crystal on the 4 corners of a bedroom but hanging instead of the floor so they are not moved? Would it be ok if I paste them against the wall / ceiling? I mean I’m not sure it would take away from their energy to have a tape .
If you want to, I don’t recommend having any crystals hanging over your body while sleeping though. Tape won’t affect them.
We construct a small house but the septic tank is inside of our house due to lack of space. Can I put one black tourmaline above the septic tank before it covered by cement ?
It’s really up to you, I try to avoid toilets with crystals but sometimes there is no way to avoid them with location-based grids.
Many thanks for your post, which I am excited to try out.
My house is a semi-detached and my neighbours are particularly spiteful and negative towards us, so would like to use this grid to repel their energy.
The adjoining wall travels through my lounge, stairway, dining room and soon to be conservatory.
Do all the tourmaline crystals being used have to be the same shape and size, or could I use larger ones along the adjoining wall? With maybe a free standing point in the lounge corner against the adjoining wall, another hanging pendulum in the stairway against the adjoining wall and so on?
Your advise would be much appreciated.
Hi Tia, that should still be okay, they don’t have to be the same size.
That’s great news, thanks so much for your response.
Looking forward to the change ahead! 🙂
Hi Ethan, I read before that selenite can be added on straight walls in between the tourmaline that’s in the corners. What are your thoughts on this? I have the selenite and would love to use it for this. Thanks so much.
Yes, you can do that, that’s another grid though. The purpose of this one is to keep it simple and it uses only five stones.
I understand,thank you for your reply.
Hi Ethan,our house is about to be constructed,can i bury the crystals (inside the glass) on the 4 corners of the house foundation and the front door?
Yes you can, I know many people who have done that too
One corner of my house is a free space becuase I have kids playing around, I was planning to hang my tourmaline on the corner wall instead, put it in a red see through pouch. Will that be okay?
Thanks in advance.
Love and Light,
Hi Pao, yes that will work too
Hi I was wondering if still will still work with smaller tourmaline stones? As that’s all I can find at my local store.
You could use them but I recommend using larger stones for the home, especially when the grid only uses a few crystals
I am building a house and they are pouring a foundation soon. I want to know if I should put the tourmaline in the 4 corners before they pour the foundation or should I burry them in the ground once the foundation is poured?
I’ve known people who have done it either way. Both will work, so it’s up to you.
Do we have to pay attention of our astrological sign or else? I read that certain astrological sign such as Taurus cannot wear or touch Tiger’s Eye due to the conflicting planet, because Taurus is a zodiac sign with a ruling planet that is the enemy of Sun and Mars. Should I change Tiger’s Eye to something else for the home grid? What is exactly the role of putting a gemstone near the entrance? Thank you in advance for your precious insight.
Hi, I don’t really believe that myself. This is based on modern-day crystal healing and not on any astrological system. You can make changes if you wish.
I am looking at setting up the above for my house, I don’t have a square house, it is a backwards L, also one of my corners is in my shower. I have an aerial picture of my house, I was thinking of using that & using 6 instead of 4 Black Tourmaline (the extra 2 is so I can include my garage.
Can you give me any advice on this please.
Yes, that’s a good way to do it. Its about the corners of your property so you can use extra crystals if the house is L shaped.
Hi, I’ve recently built a new home, they’re about to pour the foot path and I’d like to grid it, I was wondering if I could put black tourmaline in the 4 corners outside in the concrete? Will they be damaged by rain? And how will I cleanse them?
Well if they are in the concrete then they should be protected from the rain. Crystals buried in the earth should be cleansed by the earth’s energy.
Sorry I should have said do I need to completely cover them or can I put them so they are visible but still embedded? Thanks
No, they dont need to be visible with location grids. People put them under foundations or concrete all the time.
H! What kind of crystals/stones to bury of the bagua map missing areas?
I’m not working with crystals that way to be able to offer suggestions. Maybe ask a Feng Shui master for a better idea
