Crystals for Grief

Crystals for Grief

Grief ignited my journey into crystal healing. Initially, as I delved into Totems and Tarot, my focus was on selling tarot decks and offering readings. It was a friend's encouragement that prompted me to incorporate crystals into my offerings. Beginning with bundles, which you can still find on my website, I assembled the first one for a dear friend who had recently lost her mother to cancer. My intention was to provide her with small totems to hold, offering comfort during her time of need.

Grief is complex and ever-present. I firmly believe it doesn't diminish or become easier with time; instead, we adapt and grow around it. Thoughts of our lost loved ones persist, reminding us of their absence. In the grand scheme, the universe is energy-driven, and I hold a strong belief that we'll reunite with our departed loved ones. Until then, it's crucial to nurture and support our tender hearts. 

Unfortunately, death and grief are often taboo subjects in Western society, topics many prefer to avoid discussing.As a tarot reader and crystal dealer I meet this subject head on in my exchanges with my clients. It’s my goal to offer sacred spaces where we can honor those that we have lost and find ways to process the feelings.

You can find my grief bundle here. Below, I've listed the carefully selected crystals and explained why each one was chosen for your healing journey.

Mangano (Pink) Calcite

Losing my cat Velcro a few years ago left my heart shattered. Estranged from my family both physically and emotionally, Velcro was my constant companion through thick and thin. The pain was palpable, making it difficult to even get out of bed each day. He was a tiny bundle of unconditional love. Amidst the grief, I realized I needed to learn how to extend that same love and care to myself. One of the reasons I chose Mangano Calcite is because it feels like a warm, comforting hug, soothing and kind. I keep a piece at the bottom of my purse; sometimes, when reaching for my keys or wallet, I'll accidentally grab it first. It serves as a reminder that Velcro's love is always with me, and that I can offer myself love and comfort whenever I need it.


Many of my clients shy away from angelic energy due to religious trauma, yet during times of grief, connecting with the spiritual realm becomes crucial. Angels predate the religions we know today, serving as messengers between us and the unknown. Regardless of your belief system, calling upon them in times of need can bring immense solace. Whether seeking signs, comfort, or strength to endure, cracking open the door of belief even slightly can invite their assistance. Angelite serves as a reminder to seek help when needed. Grief can be isolating, but we need not face it alone.


If you struggle with sleep like I do, you know how those restless nights tend to multiply during tough times. That's why I treasure this beautiful round pebble of lepidolite for its comforting properties. To me, lepidolite is like the 'lavender' of crystals, offering a calming, nurturing embrace. It reminds us to prioritize our mental health, guiding us toward self-care and gentle reparenting, especially if we've lost a parental figure. Placing lepidolite under my pillow helps ease anxious thoughts, ensuring a restful night's sleep. Lack of sleep can exacerbate negative emotions, making grief even more challenging to bear. Lepidolite proves invaluable in times of loss, providing comfort whenever needed, whether tucked in your pocket or held close during moments of sorrow.

Tourmalinated Quartz

Tourmalinated Quartz combines clear quartz with black tourmaline striations, making it a potent tool for processing overwhelming emotions that our tender hearts struggle to bear. Believed to cleanse negative energy from the aura and infuse it with positive vibrations, this stone facilitates emotional healing that we often struggle to achieve on our own. It's my go-to when breaking patterns or seeking shifts in mindset. While it's essential to acknowledge and feel our emotions, dwelling in them can lead to depression. Tourmalinated quartz gently reminds us to avoid falling into the trap of self-pity and to prioritize our emotional well-being as we navigate grief and pain.

If you're reading this, chances are you've experienced loss. From my heart to yours, know that you're not alone in your pain. I understand it all too well, having lost not just Velcro but also numerous family members to unspeakable tragedies. Grief is undeniably intense, yet it holds the power to transform us in profound ways. Amidst the tears and heartbreak, remember that your pain is a testament to the love you shared. May these crystals offer a small measure of comfort as you navigate life without your loved ones. Though they may no longer be with us, their impact on our lives endures, making us better for having known them. May you find solace in the memories and one day be reunited with them in love and harmony.
