crystals for emf


THE BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. I feel crystals should be used as a compliment to a sound holistic health plan & not as a replacement for regular medical and/or psychological care & consultation. Please check with a doctor first before applying any advise given here.


This is an updated & revamped version of a classic blog post. So much new info has come out around this subject that I had to include it & update here. Hope you find it useful! ♥

OK, have you noticed over the last few years people have become much more concerned with EMF (electromagnetic frequency) radiation & now a new possible threat; nuclear radiation in the atmosphere? AKA, EM Pollution.

We’re hearing more & more about cell phone radiation and how that can be harmful to our health. (Thank goodness the word is finally getting out about that!)

Some symptoms of excess EMF radiation are:

  • fatigue
  • joint & muscle pain
  • decreased attention span
  • memory loss
  • difficulty focusing
  • insomnia

BTW, these are the same symptoms of being un-grounded…of feeling Yuck & Stuck!

I feel there’s no such thing as coincidence & that this is directly due to too much EMF in our environments causing us to become un-grounded.

Crystals to Ward off EMF

In my Certified Crystal Healer Courses we discuss specific crystals & protocols for counteracting EMF pollution. Crystals you don’t want to use are any sort of silicate crystals: quartz, lepidolite, opal, etc.

Why? Well, for the simple reason that they easily slide into resonance with electronics & microwave radiation. That property is why silicon (what silicates & quartz [silicon dioxide] are made of) is so widely used in technology! It’s an excellent semi-conductor of energy.

Some ask me what sort of stones they can place around their computers and laptops to help protect them from any radiation coming from there. I feel the best stones to use for this sort of EMF protection are ferromagnetic (iron containing) stones such as:

  • lodestone/magnetite (these are essentially the same mineral, but lodestone is found naturally magnetized while magnetite is not)
  • hematite
  • pyrite

WARNING: be certain not to have any strongly magnetic stones near your laptop or other devices = can cause LAPTOP DEATH due to hard-drive being erased.

2 More Non-Ferromagnetic Minerals Ideal for This

  1. Black tourmaline – (even though it’s a silicate). The reason I throw this stone into the hat is b/c it’s got just the right combo of elements & it has the added yin-benefit of having iron in it. Black tourmaline is known for its ability to transmute energy & due to it having piezoelectric as well as pyroelectric properties too. (You can check out those 2 blog posts if you want to really get geeky with this). black tourmaline
  2. Another recent favorite for EMF protection is shungite (You can find out why in that blog post).

Now! Here’s the KICKER that I’ve discovered!! Most of these are the same exact stones many cultures teach to use to ground ourselves!!! Again, no flippin’ coincidence. Don’t you just love when the ancient knowledge & the new revelations dovetail together like that? ♥

Here are all my fav EMF-Curb-Kickin’ stones together…


Other tips + techniques:

em pollution crystal protection from emf





  • Unplug your bedroom as much as possible (listen to Warren’s recording below for how’s & why’s)
  • Reduce or eliminate your use of wireless internet (you can put it on a timer so at least part of the time it’s not radiating throughout your house, physical body & auric field).

Healing Magnesium Crystal Bath for EMF Detox

Not only is this bath great for de-toxing excess EMF build up but this bath is super-relaxing.

Magnesium is a magical mineral that increases serotonin in our systems which creates calm relaxation in us. This bath is perfect for use after radiation exposure of any sort (going through TSA, x-ray screenings, etc.) or even too much time on your mobile device or computer.

I adapted & slightly tweaked the original recipe of this bath from the book Zapped (linked below). DISCLAIMER: (Children, pregnant women & anyone with chronic illness should avoid this bath or consult with their doctor first re: high water temp.)

  • 1 lb. Himalayan sea salt (can sub regular sea salt)
  • 1 lb. baking soda
  • 1-2 tablespoons of ionic Magnesium Concentrated trace minerals (stress from EMF & radiation pollution drains magnesium & increases adrenaline)
  • tub of very hot water (hot as you can stand)
  • 1 tumbled stone each of serpentine & rhodonite (magnesium containing minerals safe for plopping into your bath)

Now just soak in the tub until it cools. Then after your bath, don’t dry off or shower off right away. You can choose to rub down with some magnesium oil or if you’re going to bed you can rub some on the bottom of your feet. You want to allow the minerals to soak into your skin.


If you’d like to learn more about residual static build-up, wireless EMF, radioactivity & how to lower your risk and avoid EMF exposure around your house here’s a great recording of an interview with Vicki Warren, the past executive director of the Institute for Bau-Biologie & Ecology. Here she talks about all of these things & gives excellent advice on examining your home for EMF dangers! Awesome stuffs.

I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book. Truly eye-opening! Be informed & get protected:

I don’t like to fear monger but I feel so much of this info is under-reported and so easily remedied. I think its good to get this info out there from time to time & remind ourselves to clean up our energy + get grounded & balance.

If you have other tips or ideas, please share. We’d love to hear them here! And if you found this post useful or helpful, please share it with others. ♥

    1. Thank you for this! I am definitely planning to do the bath. I always look forward to your blog posts and I cannot wait to begin your crystal certification course! Sending bright crystal blessings to you!

      1. Ohhhhh love keeping quartz in my bathtub hahaha it’s been a rocky year so happy to add some pyrite just next my bed!

    2. I’m a chemist. And any ionic magnesium salt will work as long as it dissolves in water and the anion is non-toxic. MgSO4, magnesium sulfate will be aborbed and used just as easily as MgCl2, magnesium chloride.

    3. Do not take magnesium orally it is ineffective. It must be used on the skin transdermally. Eating it is 100% NOT BIOAVAILABLE

  1. This is so interesting! I will have to look more into it! So aren’t you off for the December? Was pleasantly surprised to see this post today!

  2. Orgonite is a proven commuter of deadly orgone (etheric) radiation.
    I have my house and smart meter surrounded, next to my router sits a large pyramid of it. Research how the government shut down the research in the 50s and how a grass roots movement is fighting the deadly radiation beamed all around this beautiful planet.
    Thank you for bringing another voice to this fight.
    I believe our very connection to Source is at stake.
    Peace and love to all.

    1. Did you build that pyramid yourself?
      And did you check the radiation levels
      before and after you had it?
      Please let me know how you did it.

    2. How do you know who has the correct ingredients in their Orgonites since every

      ones looks so different?

    3. TeddieMarie, .orgone pyramids made up of what? I know the basics, copper wrapped quartz, other metals but what stones are you using? Shungite? Black tourmaline?

  3. thank u for this article! i almost ruined my laptop inadvertenly having a huge quartz crystal i found in the park and wearing a diamond quartz necklace while online…my computer was acting funny….and now that i had the sense to realize what it was i fixed the problem…ill only use shungite that i bought for this…thanks ur articles are so helpful

  4. EMF risks…. so, when ‘they’ finally invent cordless hair dryers/stylers, I should avoid them? I have been waiting my entire life for a cord-free bathroom.

    Or stock up on crystals.


  5. I really appreciated this info as I have heard so much about emf and was recently introduced to Shungite. From everything I have been reading it is perfect for warding off the effects of emf. I even make shungite water. I was pleased it was listed here so I know I am on the right track. I also have a few hymylain salt lamps which also help. Thank you for this info.

  6. I’m confused about whether it is okay to put these ferromagnetic stones around your computer because they might damage the electronics. Also, in the shungite post, you say that your research and data does not yet back up that shungite protects from EMF, yet this post lists it as being protective. Can you clarify?

  7. Hibiscus Moon, you are missing something crucial, it’s called orgonite!! they are basically negative ion generators but with a long list of benefits and additional effects.I make my own and every single person I’ve given one to has told me it helps them one way or another, please check it out, do some research, they really work!

  8. Love your website! EMF protection is SO important! We use a lot of the same crystals in our Body Mats! Especially Hematite & Black Tourmaline to balance the negative effects of EMF absorption. Great stuff! <3

  9. Please dont tell people its ok to put crystal in there water because its not
    Yes is Shungite is ok if you know where it comes from but most to all minerals and crystal are cleaned with chemical or have toxins in them,
    so they are not safe to drink the ONLY SAFE WAY IS THE ” INDIRECT METHED)

    these are some side affects can feel by having the mineras or crystals in your water : aggitated, aggressive, obsessive,nervous, having feelings of paranoia, losing hair, pitted nails, coloured teeth, bluish gums, continual upset stomache’s with cramping, the runs and constipation, fevers for not apparent reason, skin lesions that won’t heal, obscure illnesses etc etc etc

  10. The mining practices for himalayan pink salt involve child labor and slavery (easy to find on google).

    While I find your side overall interesting, I tend to disregard anyone who from a spiritual perspective recommends Himalayan Pink Salt anymore, as they prove clearly that they can’t really pick up on the bad vibes, nor have they even done the most basic of research on things that are in violation of all fundamental human ideals, let alone spiritual.

    If you’re going to be a fraud (whether deliberately, to your readers, or simply self-delusion) about your ability to sense energies, at least do your research and post ethically informed information.

    Not all that sparkles is clean of blood, sweat, and death of slave laboring miners.

  11. I have been suffering from tinnitus for several months. After a week in Canada at unplugged cottages on the shores of Lake Erie, where I experienced a week of blissful silence, I am sure it is caused from EMFs at Home. I do not use computers at home but have cable TV, and WIFI and normal household appliances. What type of crystals would you recommend for this type of problem? And anyone out there have similar experience?

      1. Research has found using about a half teaspoon of warm olive oil in the ear stops tinnitus.

        I had fluttering in the ear and the first time I used the warm olive oil the fluttering was eliminated.

        You might give it a try.


    1. Hi Julie! I too have experienced symptoms when surrounded by EMF- insomnia, ADHD, etc. And when I’m unplugged in the mountains, I sleep like a baby. I have been doing baths and I have Shungite ON my computer, tourmaline AROUND computer, I turn off the router when sleeping/not using, etc. to help. It’s all helping!

  12. Are you talking about electromagnetic frequencies or electromagnetic fields?

    EM frequencies are waves, like light waves or radio waves. The only way to block them is a physical barrier they can’t penetrate. You’d have to wear a suit of armor made of crystals, it makes no sense. It would be like trying to block UV rays by putting a bottle of sunscreen next to you while you sit outside. Also, you are exposed to EM frequencies all day long. If you can get a cell signal or FM radio in your location, you are being hit by radio waves. Standing outside in the sunlight or in your house with a light bulb you are being hit by light waves. There is a ton of background EM frequencies all over the place.

    Calling something “radiation” is misleading”. Any wave that radiates from a central point (i.e. every type of wave) is radiation. Do you call sunshine “light radiation”? The only kind of radiation that is harmful is ionizing radiation, like X-rays. Ionizing radiation can damage DNA. But your computer doesn’t emit ionizing radiation. Also as I stated, you need a physical barrier to protect from X-rays. That’s why you wear a lead blanket when they X-ray you at the dentist. They don’t put it next to you, they cover your whole body with it. But again, laptops don’t emit X-rays.

    If you mean electromagnetic fields, the issue there is the induced currents in the body. A crystal also won’t help you there either. Just don’t put the laptop on your lap and you’ll be fine.

    Sitting for long periods staring at a screen can make you tired, but that doesn’t mean any radiation is involved. You could just be tired of sitting and staring at a screen.

    1. As I understand the bio-field theory, you aren’t so much blocking the radiation as keeping your own bio-field in resonance with frequencies that are more conducive to one’s normal/healthy state.

  13. huh magnesium oil?
    sounds like a bomb!

    When the magnesium metal burns it reacts with oxygen found in the air to form Magnesium Oxide. … Magnesium gives up two electrons to oxygen atoms to form this powdery product. This is an exothermic reaction.

  14. HELP Crystal Lovers family,
    I am suffering from debilitating migraines and headaches. After reading about the Shungite and such for EMF protection I researched if they cause migraines. Scientists claim that is the#1 cause of migraines and headaches, which explains why I have acute episodes at or directly after work. I need the best Shungite, although I probably can’t afford them, I need the Noble, Elite Shungite. Please, someone help me? Where can I purchase Elite Shungite and know I can trust the seller? Thank you. Crystal Blessings 🤗😊😘 Karen

    1. Hey Karen
      I just bought a selection of shungites from Russia-from where they mine it.
      Google Karelian Shungite factory.They are the real deal!!!
      To test your shungite to make sure it isnt fake-get a torch that has the batteries at the back,unscrew the cover,have the torch turned on,then press your shungite in against the batteries and your torch should light up if is real shungite.Alternatively you can press your shungite pieces To your touch screen on your mobile phone or iPad and it should work just like the human finger as it is a conductor of Electricity and so are our fingers.You can also check with other crystals with the torch test the touchscreen test and they will not work!!!
      Blessings Monika🙏💖
