Best Crystals & Gemstones for Stress & Anxiety | Crystal Karma by Trina

 Firstly, what is anxiety?

"Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or worried. While stress and anxious feelings are a common response to a situation where we feel under pressure, they usually pass once the stressful situation has passed, or ‘stressor’ is removed.

Everyone feels anxious from time to time. When anxious feelings don't go away, happen without any particular reason or make it hard to cope with daily life it may be the sign of an anxiety condition."  - Beyond Blue Org.

Anxiety can cause intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Fast heart rate, rapid breathing, sweating and feeling tired may occur.  Anxiety can be normal in stressful situations such as public speaking or taking a test. Anxiety is only an indicator of underlying disease when feelings become excessive, all-consuming and interfere with daily living.


Crystal healing can help ease some anxiety symptoms such as stomach tension, tense muscles and loss of self-confidence.  Try these calming crystals when you’re suffering from anxiety, to stay focused and calm your mind and stay in control.

So what are the best calming crystals that are good for stress and anxiety and panic attacks?  Here's a few of my favourites gemstones for anxiety, crystals for stress and crystals for depression..

Aquamarine evokes the purity of crystalline waters, and the exhilaration and relaxation of the sea. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go. The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marinus, meaning "water of the sea," and refers to its sparkling ocean-like colour.
