Electromagnetism is a tricky subject in today’s world. It’s almost impossible to completely block EMF radiation. There’s free public wi-fi in most restaurants. Everyone’s got a phone in their pocket all the time. You’re on your computer for 8 hours a day at work. All of these situations mean we are bathing in electromagnetic fields!
But we know that EMF radiation is dangerous in high doses. What we don’t know, and we won’t be able to know for some time, is the effect of constant, low-level EM radiation. But if high doses are dangerous, it’s safe to assume that a little bit, all the time, probably isn’t ideal.
EMF sensitivity can lead to trouble sleeping, nervousness and anxiety, depression, and everything that goes with those maladies. It can lead to physical sensitivity, where any sensation feels like it’s a thousand times too much.
So what can you do? Well, there’s a lot. You can put your phone on airplane mode, and never sleep with it under or next to your pillow. Maybe spend more time out in the woods (which I always recommend). You can go fishing, and leave your phone in the car.
But at the end of the day, you’re going to have to come home. You’re going to need your phone. You’re going to need to go to work. Work’s probably going to have wi-fi and electronics. You’re going to need to expose yourself, in our modern world, to forces you may not be altogether comfortable with.
That’s where we hope, where I hope, that this article can be helpful. One of the simplest things you can add to, rather than subtract from, your life is a crystal. If you pick the right ones, they might just be able to lessen the negative effects.
What Are EMF Blocking Crystals?
Once, I wrote an article months ago for another site. I came across a comment later that it reminded them of a recipe site. They write 2,000 words of backstory about how they came across the recipe that the title promised.
I don’t mind the comparison; I’ve always been long-winded. Though, ironically, I didn’t particularly promise anything at the end of the article.
I wanted to give out my thoughts on a subject that was important to me. A kind offer came in from a site I support, and I wrote my thoughts. And they were apparently 2,000 words of backstory followed by a few hundred words of useful information.
Now that I’m writing for a new-age blog, I don’t think I’ve suddenly become more eloquent, but I can at least recognize where people want what I can list.
Fulgurite is one of the coolest things in nature. Almost everything else on this list is some kind of crystal. They’re real minerals that form naturally as part of the cycle of tectonic movement.
Fulgurite is something else. It’s the glass created when lightning strikes sand, superheating it in an instant. And that creates a powerful sympathy to electrical fields; when you have movement and electricity, magnetism follows by definition.
Famed for its protective qualities, Shungite is nearly pure carbon. Unlike nearly all of the other stones on this list, contains no particular iron content. Its wide availability and nice clean black coloration make it an excellent choice for a protection crystal.
Tourmaline is a beautiful semi-precious stone in a huge variety of colors. I want you to ignore those colors… for now. For the sake of its magnetic protection properties, you want it black.
When Tourmaline loses its clear, colorful aspect and instead shows black, what you are seeing is black iron content.
That black iron is your friend. It will catch and block EMF radiation around you—even from an alectromagnet, if one were around.
Aegirine is another mineral with Iron in it, and it is a great option to block EMF. Unlike Tourmaline, which may have no effect with the wrong coloration, all genuine Aegirine will work for this purpose.
Amazonite has many healing properties, and can be used for protection of many sorts. Interestingly, its green color comes, in part, from trace amounts of iron in the stone. Usually you’d expect red or black coloration, and that green is copper! But scientists in Mozambique have recently found that it is probably tied to iron content instead. Sometimes life surprises you.
The black coloration of this normally-white stone comes from high iron content. The shine and luster of it, however, is unmatched in all the others, though they’re all beautiful. If I wanted a crystal for beauty as well as protection, it’s hard to pick anything but black moonstone.
A Warning About Magnetic Crystals
Many, though not all, of the stones up to this point are, to some degree, magnetic. They have a high iron content, so if they’re nearby to a magnet, there will be a (very) slight pull.
The following, however, are actively magnetic, or can be made so. I know that probably doesn’t seem like a big deal, but you will feel differently when you’ve ruined a phone screen or wiped a hard drive and lost all your photos of your dog.
That’s not to say don’t use them, but be conscious of what is around when you use them. Don’t put them in the same pocket as your phone, your USB drive with your homework on it, or your favorite magnetic cassette tape.
When I started to read about crystals to block EMF radiation, and started to think about all the electrical fields and why and how someone might protect themselves from them, magnetite was the first thought that came to my mind. After all, it’s got “magnet” right in the name!
Like many of the above, it’s got a very high iron content. Unlike many of the above, if you use a powerful magnet, you can make magnetite into a magnet itself. That’s good, in the sense of protection! Just remember to be careful!
I include this as a warning: Hematite by itself isn’t going to protect you from EMF. However, many stones sold as Hematite have a high Magnetite content, and so they can stick to magnets and become magnetized. That’s the Magnetite, not the Hematite.
Despite the golden color, you may be surprised to learn that Pyrite is incredibly high in iron content (it’s iron disulphide)! This stone can stick to a magnet, no problem, so again, the idea is, you’re using it as a lightning rod. Attract all the energy to the crystal, and whatever you come into contact with, the stone will pick it up instead of you.
Crystals May Not Be Enough To Block EMF Waves
You can get all the crystals in the world, the best advice from crystal healers and crystal experts, and it’s all wonderful stuff. But an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Don’t leave electronics on all the time. Turn them off when you’re not using them, don’t hang out more than you have to by machines, and be aware of what you’re putting out into the world.
Then, once you’re doing what you can with mundane methods, you can go that extra mile with magickal techniques and tools!
