Are you thinking of wearing grounding stones? How can energy grounding stones help us? Is there such a thing as anxiety grounding, too? We’re going to answer these questions and more as we explore eight of the most effective crystals for grounding energy.

List of Stones and Crystals Help with Grounding Energy

1. Obsidian

Obsidian is the odd one out in this group because it is the only true blue volcanic glass among these other minerals. Regardless, it occupies a special place in the roster because it is associated with three distinct elements: water, earth, and fire. Black obsidian is formed when lava erupts from the earth. Unlike other kinds of minerals, it doesn’t have the luxury of developing over millions of years. The moment lava cools, obsidian can begin to form. It is highly recommended that people engage in all kinds of spiritual work where the individual is brought into close contact with frenetic or higher frequency energies from other people. Such exposure to higher energies can drain one easily.

Obsidian can be used to remove excess energies from the auric field. This brings back your energy flow to normal, which is important if you want to stay lively and energetic, with no hints of abnormal energies in your auric field.

2. Jet

This is another odd one out in the set because the jet is not a gemstone in the world’s strictest sense. Rather, a jet is a type of formation found only in fossilized wood. Jet is one of the top crystals for grounding because of its close affinity with the earth. When we ground the energy, it passes through the root chakra and back to the earth. However, not everyone can ground themselves effectively, so unwanted energies (whether good or bad) are retained in the human frame or the auric field. If you are feeling anxiety, depression, and indecision, and you don’t know where these emotions are coming from, you need the grounding powers of a jet.

3. Onyx

Onyx is a kind stone because it deals with the heaviest types of emotional baggage and problems that the human psyche can ever accommodate. It is the most magical crystal that was used extensively in ancient times for different kinds of magic. It is also made into amulets to offer effective protection against curses and other unsavory magical activities. To improve your life through grounding, black onyx can be used to remove past life trauma traces. Past life traumas function exactly like recent traumas; only we have lost the specific memories that bind them to us.

This doesn’t mean that these traumas are not harmful anymore. A person may not know why he is experiencing the trauma, but the trauma remains. When you meditate with onyx, you allow the past life traumas to wither away, and eventually, you will be set free from them.

4. Jasper

Red Jasper, specifically, has a great stabilizing effect on people’s thoughts and emotions. This gemstone is most valuable when a person wants to remain steadfast in times of trauma and stress. We recommend getting it if your life is a constant battle against negativity, and there are players or actors in your life that constantly create negativity for you.

Being exposed to negative people can mess up your emotional balance, so it’s important to have a protective shield that can counterbalance the harsh effects of negativity.

5. Shungite

Shungite is not well known, but it remains a notable stone of life and stone of transformation. The lustrous shungite can be used as a regenerative stone that can bring back zest in your life. It can also be functionally used as a shield against EMPs. What makes it truly special is its frequencies are locked toward the root chakra. Like we discussed earlier, the root chakra is the site of the grounding connection to the earth. The root chakra allows you to release these energies so you can feel normal and secure again. Much of the insecurity that we feel about ourselves is the result of an overturned matrix of energies that we can’t balance without the special aid of spiritual devices, like healing crystals.

6. Hematite


The hematite is focused mainly on the human mind, but its main chakra connection is still with the root chakra, making it a grounding stone. What’s interesting about the hematite is that its frequencies allow you to reach the deepest parts of the earth when grounding yourself. This is the best way to recharge oneself and enhance any natural talents or gifts you may have, including your natural psychic talents.

If you have psychic talents and feel that you have not been able to recharge for a long time, grab some hematite and wear them all day. At the end of your busy working day, you may opt to meditate and ground yourself a little more to seal it.

7. Smokey Quartz

Smokey quartz is a classic grounding crystal that vibrates at a higher frequency than its other quartz cousins. Smokey quartz has a high transmutation capacity that it can easily be used as the core of an orgonite generator. This type of quartz can cleanse an entire room of negative energies.

If you have been thinking of creating a powerful energy grid at home, be sure to add at least one piece of Smokey quartz to the mix of crystals. Smokey quartz will support the vibrational transmission of similar stones, and it may even amplify the results.

8. Black Tourmaline

Black tourmaline is magnificent when it comes to grounding and improving the quality of life of the bearer. It deals not just with individual emotions that may be taking away the happiness of your life. It will also deal with patterns in behavior and lifestyle that may be causing negativity. All of these things are taken away by black tourmaline and grounded to the earth, where the negativity will be cleansed and finally purified.
