Overcome Your Anxiety with Crystals

Feelings of anxiety vary, as does the cause. They can be triggered by short-term situations such as an important meeting, a doctor’s appointment, or an upcoming trip. They can also long-term and triggered by stress, unhappiness with a part of your life, or a fear of change. Feelings can range from feeling blue, loss of interest, shortness of breath, muscle tension, restless feelings, feelings of impending doom, and feelings of helplessness. Dealing with the feelings of anxiety can be scary and stressful. While professional help is important in severe cases, the use of crystals can be very beneficial in dealing with feelings of anxiety.

Turquoise Crystals for Anxiety

Use a turquoise-colored crystal to help overcome anxiety. Turquoise is a fresh color, a welcome color, and a color that moves us to serenity. The turquoise colored crystals help you relax, rewind, and build tolerance. When you seek to re-establish your equilibrium and get your emotions under control, use a turquoise colored crystal.

In lighter shades, turquoise energy is transformed to the power of inner harmony and peace through spiritual realization. In darker, richer tones, turquoise brings us a ray of considerable power. It is the color of flexibility.

We suggest using Turquoise and turquoise colored crystals such as Chrysocolla which is a powerful dispeller of negative energy. It can help push the negative feels of anxiety away and calm the spirit. We also recommend Larimar which provides you inner harmony and peace, similar to Turquoise which is the most efficient healer in all aspects. Amazonite can also help you balance and rejuvenate your heart and throat chakras. Any of the crystals listed here can assist you with your anxiety and feeling more calm and peace within your life.


Turquoise Crystal-162362Turquoise is a most efficient healer, providing solace for the spirit and well-being for the body. It benefits the overall mood and emotion by balancing and inducing a sense of serenity and peace. It relieves stress and brings focus back to the center heart. It is empathetic and balancing, helping one to recognize the causes of happiness and unhappiness, and to master them.

As a stone of purification, Turquoise dispels negative energy and clears electromagnetic smog from the environment. It promotes self-realization and aids in creative problem-solving, thus calming the nerves when speaking in public. It helps stabilize mood swings, and dissolves a martyred attitude of self-sabotage.


Polished Malachite and Chrysocolla Cabochon-0Chrysocolla teaches the value of both expression and the virtue of keeping silent. One can speak and say nothing, or remain silent and speak volumes. This stone’s soothing energy dispels highly charged emotional situations, angry words or fear-filled sarcasm, to allow one’s truth to be shared with wisdom and true communication.

Chrysocolla opens bottled emotions that block the mind from thinking clearly and stimulates balance and wholeness. The serenity of its turquoise-blue color discharges negative energies, calms, and allows truth and inner wisdom to surface and be heard. A peaceful stone, it emphasizes the power our words and actions have on those around us, and encourages compassion and strengthening of character.


Rough Larimar Slab (Large)-0Larimar assists in identifying self-imposed limitations and self-sabotaging behavior, especially toward martyrdom, and encourages taking control of one’s life. It is particularly useful in admitting guilt, when guilty, and in bringing about a sense of peace in truthfulness,

Larimar is a powerful emotional cleanser and healer, especially for phobias, panic attacks, stress-related imbalances, and excessive anger or fear. It aids in breaking down the walls one has built around the heart for defense, and allows for emotional release and the clearing of deep emotional patterns. It helps one to reconnect to a previous, more natural state of playfulness and joyful childlike energy.


Amazonite Round Cabochon Set-78266Amazonite is a wonderful healer for the emotional body. It soothes trauma and calms the mind, alleviates worry and fear, and directs anger and irritability into a more positive action. It regulates the aggressive aspects of one’s personality and urges the mind to seek emotional balance.

Amazonite increases self-esteem, especially in women, and reduces tendencies to self-neglect. It enhances the ability to communicate more effectively by identifying how one’s words have created the current reality, and how to change one’s vocabulary to reflect a higher, more aligned reality. It also empowers one to set appropriate boundaries, inwardly in self-discipline, and with others in establishing healthy relationships.

What Other Crystal Authors Recommend

Judy Hall also notes the calming effects of Apophyllite which releases suppressed emotions and helps overcomes anxiety, worries, and fear.

"A stone of truth, promoting introspection and correction of imbalances, Apophyllite abandons pretense and breaks down reserve, bringing recognition of one's true Self. Releasing mental blocks and negative thought patterns, Apophyllite imbues universal love into analysis so that mind is attuned to spirit."

Naisha Ahsian tells us that Petalite is soothing and healing for the emotional body. It brings a frequency in calm self-acceptance and self-love.

"Petalite is a stone of peace and a stone of joy. It is a stone of relaxation and one for quieting the mind in turmoil. It is a very powerful stone for meditation in which the effect is inner peace."

Robert Simmons recommends Blue Calcite for lifting anxieties or the calming effects of Apophyllite that releases suppressed emotions and overcomes anxiety, worries and fear.

"Blue Calcite is primarily a stone used by women as a balancing and meditation stone for re-centering after excessive exposure to powerful Yang environments. If you need to restore yourself, meditation with calcite is highly recommended. Restoring balance is critical to your wellbeing."

Melody says that the energy of combining Azurite and Malachite allows one to reach inner depths without fear. It produces a flow of actions and willingness toward flexibility.

"Azurite-Malachite’s combination of energies is highly conducive to meditation by allowing one to go deep within the self, without fear, in order to be sustained, absolved, and reborn into the light, completely aware of the genesis at all times."



Feelings of anxiety, whether short term or long term can be very debilitating. Please seek professional care for serious issues.

Use Turquoise, Chrysocolla, Amazonite and Larimar to cope with feelings of anxiety and restoring your inner peace and serenity.
