If you’re an empath, you probably know what it’s like to need a little support. We are constantly feeling and healing for others– it can feel like a chore sometimes when we need to finally feel into and heal our own selves! That’s where crystals come in.
One of my favorite tools to recommend for empaths is crystals- and there’s a few special and specific crystals for empaths that I think you’ll love working with.

Crystals For Empaths
If you need some assistance clearing your energy, Selenite is a master cleanser.
It can absorb negativity, dense energy, and any low vibes lingering around. And the cool thing is- it doesn’t need to be cleansed itself!
Selenite just constantly takes in dense energy and turns it into lighter, softer and brighter energy.
Holding a selenite egg or palm stone and focusing on releasing is a great way to use it.
Another effective method is taking a selenite wand and “sweeping” or brushing your aura with it.
You can also use it to cleanse your other crystals– a selenite plate or bowl is a great investment. You can keep your other crystals clean and light without having to apply much effort.
If you need something to help absorb negativity, soak up heavy energy, and protect yourself- this is one of the best choices. Black tourmaline is a must have for empath energy protection!
Black tourmaline is a gentle yet powerful protection stone that can help rid you of negativity and dense energy that doesn’t belong to you. It also provides support in grounding– which is essential for empaths.
Another one of my favorite crystals for empaths is black kyanite. Legends say that Archangel Michael’s sword is made out of it! (If you’re not familiar with who Archangel Michael is, check out this article: 6 Signs Archangel Michael is visiting you)
What I love about black kyanite is its ability to protect from negativity. It’s shape resembles a blade or blades that can cut negative cords from attaching to you.
This is a great stone for removing blockages and aligning with your life’s purpose. This is a helpful crystal for empaths who tend to have their self-view or self-worth muddled by others. It is a great transmuter of negative energy.
For grounding, red jasper is a wonderful supportive crystal.
Empaths thrive when grounded. Feeling so much can cause us to get a little floaty… almost like we’re drifting out of reality. But we can’t heal or manifest if we don’t connect to the present- thats where grounding comes in.
Meditating with or carrying/wearing red jasper is a great way to support this grounding. It also helps you trust your inner truth, and have confidence in yourself.
When you need some gentle comforting energy- rose quartz is a great stone to choose.
A crystal of divine, universal love- rose quartz brings you a soft flow of comforting energy.
This crystal is recommended for empaths who need to bring in more self-love or comfort and self-care.

A stone of joy and good luck- citrine is a wonderful for the solar plexus chakra. Many empaths struggle with an out of balance solar plexus chakra- often struggling to distinguish their personal power underneath all the energy they absorb from other people. Citrine can help with that. It strengthens the solar plexus and ignites our sense of personal power. It’s also a great stone for manifesting!

This powerful crystal is another recommended one for empaths to have. It is a wonderful purifier that keeps the energy around you cleansed and free of debris. EMF protection is another hugely beneficial quality of this stone- I like to keep several by my computer and wifi equipment.
Empaths are sensitive to EMF (and everything else, lol) so working with shungite is a great way to protect yourself and keep your energy purified.
Amethyst is a wonderful soothing stone for empaths. It helps to relieve stress and emotional strain and also activates your spiritual awareness. It is a great crystal for beginners and those wanting to support their third eye chakra.
Blue Kyanite is a great crystal for empaths since it works to support the throat chakra. In addition to the solar plexus (like mentioned above) empaths can also struggle with the throat chakra and speaking their truth. Blue kyanite helps to encourage that self-expression and clear communication.
It’s also a greatly supportive crystal to help get through any blockages or fears.
