4 Crystals for EMF Protection

How's your screen time lately?

If you’ve been spending more time in front of the computer lately - possibly due to working remotely during COVID-19 - you may be feeling a bit...burned out. This literal and figurative feeling of fatigue often happens as a result of 1) staring at our screens for too long, and 2) being in the presence of low-range electromagnetic frequencies for a long period of time.

Luckily, there are some ways that we can combat this, and create a better working environment. In this article, I’ll share both crystal and non-crystal ways that you can get some relief if this is something you’ve been experiencing.

What is EMF?

First, let’s talk about why this happens. In our modern world, we're inundated with technology. Computer screens (and other electronics where you are looking at a screen) emit blue light that affects the chemicals in our bodies, causing a reaction that can disrupt our natural biorhythms and cause eye strain. If the lighting in the room in your work area isn’t quite right (or, for example, is fluorescent lighting), this can compound the issue. Along with that, if you are working remotely, there are fewer in-person meetings to attend, fewer “water cooler” breaks, and fewer spontaneous chats with coworkers - so you’re left staring at your screen for even longer than you were in the office.

One way to mitigate the effects of screen time and blue light emissions - and to give your eyes a break - is with blue light blocking glasses. There is a large range of options for blue light blocking glasses and they vary widely in price. Luckily, there are some pretty affordable solutions, if you look around. I’ve had a lot of luck with blue light blocking glasses I’ve purchased from Zenni Optical - and you can even choose your frames.

Additionally, if you are on your computer, cell phone, tablet, television, and other common devices, you are also dealing with EMFs. Electromagnetic frequencies - or EMFs - are low-level forms of electrical charges that move through the air. These are created by almost everything that has a plug. The more time you spend with your devices - especially if they use WiFi to connect to the Internet - the more EMFs you are exposed to. Why does this matter? Some people may experience sleep disruptions, brain fog, or even notice that they feel more distractible when they are around EMFs often. In fact, this is one of the reasons that some people recommend that you sleep with your phone at least two feet away from your head: to keep it farther away, lowering the EMFs that can reach you while you sleep (and since you’re not actually working for the 8ish hours you’re in bed, this is a great oIf you’ve ever wondered if there was a way to reduce the EMFs in your environment using crystals, the answer is yes! Here are four of the most-common EMF-reducing stones that you can use for crystal healing - and, bonus, they are pretty easy to find (you may even already have a few) - so you can start addressing your EMF exposure right away. These protection crystals are all great for grounding and diffusing negative energy, in addition to their properties that help them be a protective force for EMFs.

These are all great stones to set near your computer, place in front of your laptop (in between you and the device), or have on your desk.

Black Tourmaline

Black tourmaline is a "heavy" black stone: it's weighty and a powerful protection stone that can help to really get you connected with the Earth. It is also said to be a very protective stone. When I have a hard time winding down from the day and can't sleep, I'll grab one of this powerful stone and it helps me ground almost instantly, so I can fall asleep.

Also called Fool's Gold (for its appearance and shiny, golden similarities to the precious metal), pyrite is said to bring good luck and wealth. Sparkling pyrite can help to spark creativity, aid in manifestation practices, boost self confidence and willpower, and nourish your solar plexus chakra. Pyrite is a great stone for EMF deflection and also known as a stone of protection, which can help in shielding you from negative energy.

Hematite is a stone that is said to be excellent for grounding and balance. It is a stone that supports the root chakra, but is also said to be helpful in balancing and aligning all of the chakras.

Shungite is a stone found exclusively in Russia. It is a black, carbon-based material that has been said for years to be extremely good for absorbing EMF rays and for "clearing up" anything that is negative. It is definitely one of the most well known and popular choices of all of the EMF protection stones. It is said to be protective, shielding, and clearing. Shungite comes in several grades (or qualities) and can be rough or polished. Elite Shungite is the highest quality (and price point), containing approximately 98% carbon.

Try it!

These crystals are all known for their EMF-protecting well as their other energetic properties and overall positive energy. Additionally, several of these crystals - particularly black tourmaline and hematite - are amazing crystals for grounding and connecting to the Earth.

So if you’re looking for a way to counteract some of your time in front of the computer lately, give some (or all) of these crystals a try! Remember to take breaks. Try some blue light blocking glasses. Drink lots of water. Stretch. Take a walk if you can. And be sure to breathe deeply for a couple of minutes each day.

***always be sure you are not putting magnetic crystals near your computer! If they are strong enough, they may affect the hard drive. Hematite and pyrite can have trace amounts of magnetite and you definitely want to make sure you are not using "magnetic hematite" - which isn't hematite at all, really, anyway). Remember: if you are in doubt, leave it out (or, in this case, away)!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are EMFs and where do they come from?

EMF stands for electromagnetic fields. Electromagnetic fields are invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, that are associated with the use of electrical power and various forms of natural and man-made lighting.

The sources of EMFs are many and varied, here are some common ones:

  • Electrical appliances: TVs, refrigerators, microwave ovens, radios, and computers all emit EMFs.
  • Communications and wireless devices: Cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, Bluetooth devices, cellular networks, and broadcast TV and radio signals all create EMFs.
  • Power lines: Both high-voltage transmission lines and local distribution lines produce EMFs.
  • Medical imaging: X-ray machines, CT scans, and MRI devices produce ionizing EMFs.
  • Natural sources: Even the Earth produces EMFs, with a weak magnetic field, and sunlight is also a form of EMF radiation.

While the effects of low level non-ionizing radiation on human health are a topic of ongoing research and debate, there is consensus that high radiation levels can lead to health issues. Therefore, safety guidelines have been established to limit exposure to certain types of EMFs, particularly from medical imaging devices and occupational exposure. Increased exposure at low levels, however, can still have frustrating potential effects, including headaches, feeling ungrounded, and fogginess. While crystals aren't the only solution or a perfect solution for electromagnetic radiation, they are one of the simplest ways to support your workspace - especially if you were already planning to put some there anyway.

How can I avoid EMFs? 

In our modern society, it's almost impossible to completely avoid elecromagnetic radiation. On a daily basis, we interact with multiple sources of EMFs: our cell phone, wifi router, cell towers, computers, and more are all sources of electromagnetic frequency and, as you may guess, contribute to frequent exposure in our digital age. That's why being aware of them and then taking steps to mitigate some of the exposure can be beneficial.

What are some of the best crystals to protect against EMF radiation?

There are several crystals that are known for their ability to protect against EMF radiation and other negative energies. Some of the most popular ones include shungite, black tourmaline, hematite, and orgonite. These crystals work by absorbing, deflecting, or neutralizing the harmful electromagnetic waves that are emitted by electronic devices.

​How can I use crystals to protect me from EMFs? 

​Some of the best and easiest ways to use crystals for EMF protection are: 

  • Placing them on your desk, between your electronics and you
  • Placing one or more on or around your router
  • Wearing EMF protection jewelry. You can commonly find pieces made from shungite or black tourmaline.

How do crystals protect against EMF radiation?

Crystals protect against EMF radiation by absorbing, deflecting, or neutralizing the electromagnetic waves that are emitted by electronic devices. These protective crystals work by creating a protective shield around your energy field, which helps to block the harmful effects of EMF radiation.

What are the benefits of using crystals for EMF protection?

Using crystals for EMF protection can have several benefits. They can help to reduce the harmful effects of EMF radiation on your body, which can lead to improved health and wellbeing. Additionally, they can help to promote a sense of calm and relaxation, which can be beneficial for those who are sensitive to the effects of EMF radiation.

Which crystals are most effective for EMF protection?

The effectiveness of crystals for EMF protection can vary depending on the individual and the specific type of crystal being used. However, some of the most effective crystals for EMF protection include shungite, black tourmaline, hematite, and pyrite. These crystals are known for their ability to absorb, deflect, and/or neutralize harmful electromagnetic waves.

Are there any scientific studies supporting the use of crystals for EMF protection?

While there is limited scientific research on the effectiveness of crystals for EMF protection, many people have reported positive results from using them. Some studies have shown that certain crystals, such as shungite, may have the ability to absorb and neutralize harmful electromagnetic waves. However, more research is needed to fully understand the potential benefits of using crystals for EMF protection.
