Grief, such as that caused by losing a loved one, can be very difficult and painful. However, there are some crystals which may be helpful to use when dealing with grief.
Azurite is a good crystal for grief. This stone can aid in removing blockages from the throat and third eye chakras. Azurite is commonly used to calm anxieties and aid in communications. Azurite can also be used to enhance intuition. Meditating with azurite can aid in reducing mental stresses.
Rose Quartz is a crystal of love and the heart chakra, vibrating with compassion, forgiveness, love, and empathy. Worn as a pendant, it can transmit these energies to the user all day long. Rose Quartz can aid in removing negative energy from people and places. Rose Quartz should be cleansed on a regular basis if worn every day.
Chrysoprase is an excellent healing stone. It is a heart chakra crystal which provides calming energy to those suffering from grief. Chrysoprase is also used to help engender hope in situations thought to be hopeless.
Apache Tears are good crystals for draining off negative energiey. Also called black obsidian, Apache Tears are often quite helpful when someone is dealing with the loss of a loved one. However, users should be aware that Apache Tears can be very intense, and repressed problems that need attention will most likely come to the surface. These crystals should be buried in the ground all night after being used. This allows the negative energy absorbed by the stone to be released.
