One of the most important function of crystals and stones is their protective function. For centuries, people have used the crystal’s metaphysical energy for protection. For example, Amber and Jet have been used to absorb the negative energy coming to the wearer from external sources. A lot of magical items used for protection are either made of stones entirely or incorporate stones and crystal in some way. If programmed, virtually any stone can be used as a protective amulet. However, not all of them are equally suited to perform this function at a maximum level.

At the end, keep in mind that crystals and stones are just auxiliary tools in any type of metaphysical work, including protection. A word of caution: don’t be carried away into thinking that just by possessing a powerful protection stone or crystal you are totally and absolutely safe. The main source of protective energy should be your own Divine self, Christ in you. If you break the Divine laws of the Universe, there is no protection strong enough that can shield you against the karmic wheel set in motion by your wrongful action. Therefore, learn how to connect to that part of your microcosm representing pure energy, light, wisdom, and love. The awakened Divine love in your heart is by far the best protection you can get.
What is your favorite protection stone? Can you share some details about the protective action of your crystals and stone?
very nice information.....
Glad you like it. Thanks for the comment.
can you tell me with Haematite being a magnetic protective stone dose the same applies to the none magnetic type. Thank you for your time.
Thanks for the comment Gloria. Although magnetic (of anti-ferro magnetic type), Hematite doesn't react to a magnetic field of normal strength, so it actually behaves in a non magnet fashion. That is, from what you and I can tell without sophisticated equipment, Hematite reacts as a non magnetic material. You can read more about the properties of Hematite here.

Turquoise helps in arthritis, swelling and pain related. Wear as ring in middle finger right hand.
Thanks for the info, Kumar. Really appreciate it.
Many crystals can help to create a nice, secure space in your home and eliminate negative energies. But, I don't see here for example Shungite. It is a great stone for protection from geopathic irradiation. Hematite is rightfully in the list because it cleanses and guards the aura. Don't forget to smudge you house from time to time and prepare some crystal grids for protection. And keep negative people far far away from your private space. Nothing can ruin it as quickly as negative people.
Great tips, billy, indeed. Thanks for sharing.
Keeping negative people and envious people away is a major step in energy clearing. Just a simple phone call from a jealous person can set things to go south.
So true, Kumar, so true. Thanks a lot for sharing your insight.
