8 Best Healing Crystals for Grief and Loss

8 Best Healing Crystals for Grief and Loss

Grief is the natural response to loss.  Often the pain of loss can be overwhelming.  Loss can show up in many ways; the death of a loved one, loss of a job, death of a beloved pet.  Moving through Grief can feel endless and during the darker moments, we really need to find a kindness and certain kind of strength stashed deep within.

Grief is messy and no one feels it the same way. Sometimes the pain is huge, but there are some small ways that you may be able to ease the overpowering sense of sadness that comes with loss.  There are no short cuts, you will take the time that is needed for you!

Healing Crystals are not some magic wand that will make everything better but they can provide a source of comfort.  Different crystals have different powers all with goal of helping you deal with grief. 

Time will help to heal these raw wounds but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t find a sense of softness and holistic healing along the way.

Wear a piece of healing crystal and be comforted by the stone against your skin which will also send healing vibrations directly to your heart.

These are some of my favourites;

Apache Tears

This Black Obsidian stone is the most recommended to help you process grief.  Apache Tears will help you ground your grief, allowing you time to process it in your own time.  It won’t make the grief go away but it will allow you to experience the grief in a way that you don’t get stuck within the emotion.


Pink Kunzite

Pink Kunzite works with the heart chakra energy and is especially helpful with the loss of a relationship or death of a romantic partner.  It radiates the energy of unconditional love and compassion that is helpful in processing emotion when you are dealing with the heartbreak of loss.


Smokey Quartz

Smokey Quartz is one of the best stones for grief because it changes negative energy into positive energy.  It is perfect for when you are moving through the stages of grief and are into later stages such as depression.  Smokey Quartz has strong grounding properties that can help you feel rooted and stable even when you feel like you’re being knocked off your feet. 

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz will help soothe your heart.  It vibrates a gentle, loving, heart-focused healing energy to help you process heartbreak associated with loss and grief. It can be very helpful during the bargaining stages of grief when feeling of guild and self-blame can flood your soul.  Rose Quartz reminds you to be kind to yourself.
