Renee’s Thoughts Worth Catching

It’s been a heck of a week for the world. It’s been a heck of a decade, really. So I started thinking about my crystal specialty and felt it important to share what I know about crystals can help with grief and healing.  The following crystals are good for managing grief, keeping memories alive and how to heal every kind of broken heart, no matter what the reason .. you have (and had) experienced with your loved ones.

apache tear

The most common for grief is the Apache Tear. It is used to sooth a heavy heart, heal grief in all ways, and ultimately healing the sadness felt after a significant loss.  It also works to assist you to see the divine light and love.


Rhodonite is one I love so much because it has so many properties and so varied that something keeps me coming to this stone – so while I have featured it before, here are even more reasons to love this stone as much as I do. It helps sooth your emotions and feelings after a sudden loss. It is a very steady stone, assisting to ground yourself and find a way to anchor your memories of those gone by. It can transform and heal your emotions. (this is personally one of my most favorites to work with)

Rough Ruby

Ruby heals wounds of the heart in more than one area. It affects mental, psychical and spiritual arenas It also assists with the root chakra as that is most effected by sudden loss. It also helps to validate your emotions and feelings for any and all subjects.


Aquamarine is the stone of release and, once you are ready, allows you to let go and accept the loss. It also helps connect you to their soul and spirit since the body is gone. It also will bring feelings on said persons to light for processing.


If you are grieving, whether it be someone’s passing, the end of a relationship or any other emotion that you associate with loss and your heart hurting, any or all of the above will help in more ways than one. Meditating with the stone will bring your inner thoughts to the surface and will help in mourning, accepting and releasing.
