6 Grounding Crystals for Anxiety Relief

If you’re interested in learning more about crystals for anxiety, you’re not alone. 

Anxiety affects almost everybody, but crystals for anxiety can be an amazing and helpful tool! 

Anxiety is something that almost all humans have in common. Most of us experience it to some degree—but of course, some experience it more seriously than others. 

First, if you’re struggling with serious anxiety or an anxiety disorder, it’s important to do further research and ask for help if you need it. Healing crystals for anxiety can be a helpful tool, but are also not a full solution. While many people swear by healing crystals and their benefits, healing any kind of ailment—mental or physical— is always most effective when multiple modalities are used. Using healing crystals in conjunction with other types of anxiety treatments (whichever you choose) will be more beneficial for your healing journey. 

That being said, if you’re looking for something to help relieve regular day-to-day anxiety or for a thoughtful gift for someone struggling with anxiety, grounding crystals are a great area to explore!

How Can Crystals Help With Anxiety?

While some believe in the metaphysical properties of healing crystals, others enjoy using crystals or wearing healing crystal jewelry as a reminder to re-center. 

Kind of like tying a string onto your finger to avoid forgetting something important, healing stones for anxiety can help us reconnect with a specific intention, mantra, or positive affirmation.

Healing stones can also be used for breathing exercises and other mindfulness practices—especially healing crystal malas

Some say that crystals have healing physical properties, and others say it’s a placebo effect. In any case, as long as it improves your life in some way, why not roll with it?

Grounding Crystals for Anxiety

While some crystals are known to help raise your vibration, others can be more grounding and balancing.

When experiencing anxiety, we want to calm our minds and come back to the present moment.

That’s where grounding crystals come in. Grounding healing stones help bring us back down to earth, as well as help us stay calm and recollect ourselves. 

Using Grounding Anxiety Crystals 

Similar to walking on the grass or earth with bare feet (also known as “earthing”), simply holding grounding crystals and wearing grounding crystal jewelry can help offer us a sense of peace and balance.

Like we mentioned above, it can also be helpful to associate your crystal or crystal jewelry piece with an intention. That might be a calming mantra, a breathing technique that settles your parasympathetic nervous system, or a soothing visualization.

But which crystal for anxiety relief is best for you? When choosing a healing crystal or crystal jewelry, use a combination of research and following your intuition. 

Here are some of the best grounding crystals for anxiety.

Black Obsidian

Black Obsidian is a cleansing stone that absorbs and protects its wearer from negative energies. 

Formed by cooled volcanic lava, it’s no surprise that this healing crystal has a strong connection to the earth, and that it can help you reconnect to the earth as well.

Tiger’s Eye

Tiger’s Eye is another excellent grounding stone. It offers strength, courage, and power—which is sometimes exactly what we need to overcome a spell of anxiety. 

This healing stone is associated with the lower three chakras and is known to dispel fear and clear the mind. It is protective, empowering, grounding, and even said to bring good luck.

Sodalite is a calming stone that helps us connect with our feelings and find emotional balance. 

While it’s associated with the third eye chakra rather than one of the lower chakras, this crystal helps to bring mental clarity and rational thought which can be helpful in easing anxiety and stress. It’s even been used to help calm panic attacks.

You can find Sodalite in the Balance Mala Necklace as well as the Chakra Mala.

Snow Quartz

Snow Quartz is another healing crystal for anxiety that offers mental clarity and emotional balance. With a gentle and feminine energy, this healing stone brings self-awareness, alertness, and harmony. 

Snow Quartz is associated with the crown chakra and is an excellent crystal to use during meditation.

Keep an even more grounding crystal, like Black Obsidian, in your pocket for added balance. 


Amethyst is a very popular crystal for its many healing properties. It’s a calming stone that can help balance one’s mood, dissolve negativity, and dispel anxiety. 

That being said, Amethyst is associated with the crown chakra and is a higher vibration crystal. So while it can help with fear, stress, and anxiety, consider using it in combination with a more grounding crystal to stay balanced. 

Amethyst is one of the stones you will find in the Chakra Mala healing crystal necklace.


Associated with the root chakra, Riverstone is a wonderful grounding crystal for anxiety as it helps us to go with the flow and accept change.
