    3. Amber

    Amber is actually resin that is fossilized as opposed to a mineral formed by earth.

    It can also contain pieces of vegetation or insects from millions of years prior.

    They are excellent for protecting the body against any influences that are negative in vibe and will also promote health and healing.

    4. Jet

    Another type of fossil, jet is actually fossilized wood. It’s black and looks like coal, and once polished can be worn as beads in jewellery.

    It can be even more effective if it’s set in silver.

    It will protect you against violence and illness, in addition to any dark entities.

    5. Fluorite

    Fluorite can be many different colors, including green, purple, blue, yellow, brown, or clear.

    It will protect your psychic abilities and will help you determine if there are any outside influences that are trying to manipulate you psychically or mentally.

    It’s also good protection for electromagnetism if you tend to be at your computer for long periods of time.

    Green fluorite is more effective at protecting your from negative energies.

    6. Fire Agate

    Fire agate has some intense connections with earth and will protect you against ill wishes and hexes.

    When you carry a fire agate on your person, it will form a protective force field that will bounce negative energy back to its sender so the source can see its harm reflected back at them.

    7. Amethyst

    Amethyst, a purple semi-precious gemstone, has been used for centuries for protection against drunkenness.

    It’s also very powerful at protective uses, especially against psychic attacks and other negative vibes.

    Angelite, a blue and white crystal, is said to connect you to the angelic realm.

    It will protect your body from harm but also your immediate environment.

    Keep it in sunlight for 12 hours and then put it in a tightly stoppered bottle.

    9. Cat’s Eye

    Cat’s eye is a chrysoberyl which has the rutile mineral inside it.

    These rutile filaments line up within the crystal, making it look like a cat’s eye.

    It’s best used to protect your aura from negative energies, and will also help to increase your happiness, your confidence, and bring you luck.

    It’s best worn on the right side of your body to increase effectiveness.

    10. Carnelian

    Carnelian can be either red, pink, brown, or orange, and can often be spotted in river beds.

    In ancient times, it was placed on bodies to protect them on their journey to beyond.

    If you wear this, it will bring you protection against rage, resentment, and envy, whether your own or other energies around you.
