The question that begs to be answered here is…. Is there a certain stone or crystal that can protect you from EMFs?

Stone therapy, or lithotherapy, was developed into a branch of homeopathy in France in 1965. But the French did not invent healing with stones. Early civilizations used stones for healing in lots of ways; in ceremonies or rituals, in powders and elixirs, by wearing them or carrying them on the body.

Studies on Stones and Healing

German Studies show that our cells emit weak electromagnetic fields, called biophotons, which help cells to communicate with each other.  (see Bischof, Biophotonen – Das Licht in unseren Zellen [Translation: Biophotons – the light in our cells] Zweitausendeins, Frankfurt, 1995).

Other studies have found that electromagnetic radiation from crystals affect these biophotons. Energy from the crystals were found to make changes in brain patterns when stones were placed near or laid on the body (Institut für kinesiologische Pädiatrie [Translation: Institute for kinesiological Pediatrics], Dr. Kühl, Reutlingen).

As Michael Gienger explains:

[Stones] emit measurable frequencies of radiation in the range of infrared and ultraviolet, as well as of visible light. And although radiation from crystals is of a low intensity, because of its regularity and duration it does have great effect! For comparison, imagine a vibrating guitar string, which can barely be heard in a room, but that sounds beautifully loud through the medium of the guitar’s wooden body. Analogously, the weak radiation of a crystal may at times cause a strong reaction in our organism.”

Resonance And Healing

We are electrical beings. When the radiation of a crystal comes into contact with the human body, it impacts it on many different levels.

On a cellular level. The crystal affects the metabolism of the cells, tissues and organs when the metabolic exchange inside cell membranes is stimulated electromagnetically.

On an energetic level. The crystal affects the energy flows of the meridians and the chakras.

So the effects are profound, but they are only profound where the crystal comes into contact with like frequencies. This will happen when the energetic properties of the mineral substance are similar to those in your body. Where similar substances, particles or structures are able to vibrate this is called “resonance”.

The late Marcel Vogel, a senior scientist at IBM for over 27 years theorized that crystals are capable of amplifying and directing the natural healing energies of the body so that they become more focused and powerful, similar to a laser.

Which Crystal Is Best For EMF Protection?

Given what we know about resonance, clearly there is no one stone or crystal that can offer better protection from electromagnetic fields than any other stone or crystal. Healing with crystals is an intuitive process.

Black Tourmaline is reputed to offer protection from electronic equipment. But its not about going out and buying black tourmaline to protect yourself from EMFs. Black tourmaline might work for you but not for me, because of resonance.

Paul Martin has over 26 years of experience dealing with the healing properties of stones and crystals. In this short video he gives some wonderful insights into how stones can protect you and how to choose your stone ( a transcript of the interview is shown below).

Interviewer: “Do you listen to the rocks and what do they tell you? Paul Martin: You know I suppose I do, when you’re talking about phenomenon such as listening to the stone-beings you are talking about a phenomenon that we all experience differently. I have a very deep reaction to these stones. On what level are they telling me something, on what level is that communication actually going on? I think it varies with the stone, it varies with the particular moment, varies with the opportunity, the issues involved etcetera.

Protective Stones And Their Energies

The same stone does not affect everybody the same way. For example this particular stone here that I have in my hand, you put it in my hand and had me hold, is a very interesting stone. It’s made up of a whole selection of crystals. These are light smoky quartz crystals; it’s been colored with a little bit of probably calcite. It evidently came from the Manchester area.

It’s an interesting crystal in that it’s terminated everywhere. These are all terminations; all these points are actual terminations. That means that energy flows and works in a whole variety of ways. More than that, this is totem quartz crystal, that is to say it has an animal representation to it. I think it looks like a lizard. It crawled out of the desert with a sandy back. It looks like a lizard head to me right there, for example. But I think that a lizard is well known to be able to withstand particular environments, lots of hardship, it has learned whatever lessons that you learn from living in the desert.

So I think it carries a lot of aspects. This can work as a protection stone, for example, for the two of you on your journey. I see it as leading you into places you have never been before, and being the protection that allows you to be free about going there. So I think it’s an important stone for you. I’d love to have it. It would enhance my shop, that’s for sure, it’s an interesting stone.

That’s quite an honor for you to say that to us, because the stones you have in your shop are absolutely amazing. Well it’s a result of 26 years of having access to the world’s finest stones. I’ve been successful for 26 years in attracting those stones that make a difference. The message that people get from the stones, I mean this is like everything in the world has an energy field. I feel like yes.

Choosing Your Stones – Intuitive Intelligence

And each of those has a specific vibration. So every single stone has its own special vibration. That’s why different people are called to a different stone, because it’s in alignment with what their vibration is. Absolutely and that particular vibration is when a person comes in here and they can walk through not notice many extraordinary stones, but all of a sudden they are attracted to a particular stone. That sense of attraction is intuitive intelligence, as far as I am concerned. And it’s the most important thing that happens here and maybe a lot of places in life; paying attention to that sense of attraction because it’s your right brain, your intuitive intelligence is communicating.

It’s something you can’t fake, that sense of attraction is real and when a person comes in, if they are attracted to something then they need me to help facilitate what ensues. So I’m a dealer of these metaphysical tools for a wide variety of people, using them for a very very very wide variety of purposes.

Lately reaction is around the field of consciousness and the expansion of consciousness and the gathering of consciousness, the acquiring of consciousness. That’s where the action in the crystal field is going.”

How To Use Crystals For Healing

I recommend going to a shop to purchase your crystals in person instead of buying them on the Internet. You need to see them and feel them before you purchase.  As you allow the stones to interact with you, you will understand the right stones to choose for your healing. Take your time, start out with a small selection so that you can acquire your collection progressively.

This is how I acquired my collection of crystals.

Here are some of the ways that you can use crystals for dealing with electrosensitivity or other health conditions:
1. Put the stone where you are in pain or hurting. Concentrate and tune into the stone. Let the healing take place, feel it working.
2. Use stones to bring harmony to your chakras.
3. Put the stones in a geometric pattern. Sitting down or laying, use your intuition to place your stones around you in a certain order.
4. Use stones around your home and office. In my office I like to have a Topaz stone. Experiment and see which stones you benefit from having around you.

What About Shieldite And Shungite?

According to Wikipedia, “Shungite is a black, lustrous, non-crystalline mineraloid consisting of more than 98 weight percent of carbon. It was first described from a deposit near Shunga village, in Karelia, Russia, from where it gets its name. Shungite has been reported to contain fullerenes.”

According to iyashisource.com, “Shieldite is a very rare mineral made of silicate and crystalline carbon with a unique molecular structure which is not to be confused with other regular carbon based minerals. Shieldite forms in clusters of 70-80 carbon molecules which create capsules (called fullerenes).”

Which leads me to conclude that these are different stones that have similar properties. Do these stones have special properties? I’ve never come across any Shieldite locally so I can’t comment on it. But I did buy a Shungite pendant a few years ago. I tried wearing it for a few weeks. I didn’t feel I had any affinity to it or feel any benefit from it.

Being electrosensitive means that you react and perhaps “sense” man-made electromagnetic fields. Rather than focusing on what you can feel when around these EMFs turn your attention to stones and crystals, let their energy field resonate with you.

    Hey Lloyd,

    Thanks for the excellent article! I linked it over to some friends on FB. I appreciate the time and research you put into topic. Now that my workspace is clear of EMFs, I’ll better be able to resonate with crystals around my desk.

    Hj James
    It was the question you sent me which gave me the idea to write about this subject. Thank you!

  • Katya said,

    Hello Lloyd, thank you for your endless exploration and this nice article. Stones, esp precious and semi-precious have a tremendous effect on people (unless they were heated for jewelry purposes). They’re living beings and they emit waves. There’s a doctor in South Russia who cures a lot of maladies using stones (as well as diff. types of wood and bark, which also emit waves).

  • Andrew Maxwell said,

    Hi Lloyd, excellent website, thanks. Re stones. Kinesiology (of the HK4Health variety) helped me to determine which stones were right for me. It taps into the body’s natural energies and the practitioner is able to determine what the body needs to protect itself.

  • Paul Von said,

    I’ve worked with various stones and crystals, and it would appear each emit their own unique characteristics, which may be resonate with subtle energy systems in humans. It is important for the reader to realize, we are speaking of extremely small magnitudes of naturally occurring energy, which is resonant at rather low sine wave frequencies. Our species has had many tens of thousands of years to communicate or interact with these natural phenomena, and all that is well and good.
    In the case of industrial electromagnetic fields, we are discussing energy levels that are millions of times more intense, and occurring at frequencies which ARE NOT part of our previous environmental conditioning. These magnitudes and pulsed frequency types, are totally alien to cells and neurological systems within the human body, and cause stress disorders which often lead to cell stress mutations and permanent DNA damage.
    Massive increases in diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, Parkinson’s, Autism, (all non-curable) can be directly correlated to increased levels of man made EMF in our environment. It is obvious we must eliminate unnecessary devices like cell-phones, wi-fi, and iPods from our culture.
    With all due respect, it is insane and totally incompetent, to suggest a person can resolve out structural DNA damage, or resolve out permanent neurological damage, by thinking happy thoughts or wearing some “protective” crystal. There is a huge and measurable difference in these types of energy field phenomena, and the situation requires a much more sober approach to health.

  • Sarah said,

    Hi Lloyd
    Thanks for the fantastic blog. I will be following it with interest. Also, I would really like to see your response to Paul Von’s comment. I feel that he has a good point AND I know this whole subject is very complex and not too well understood so, I am very curious to see what you would say…

  • Lloyd said,

    Hi Sarah
    Paul makes some very valid points here. I believe that, as Marc Vogel suggested, crystals are capable of amplifying and directing the natural healing energies of the body. The question is, to what degree these healing energies can be amplified and directed? Can someone “resolve structural DNA damage”, or “resolve permanent neurological damage”, by wearing a crystal? The studies don’t point to this and neither does my personal experience nevertheless I do believe that the effects of stones and crystals on health can be far reaching.

  • Ruth Ruddock said,

    Hi…thanks for this topic. Question: should a person who is electrosensitive just fine a crystal shop and go in to ask the owner for help in finding the best stones for our use? There is someone in our area (near Milwaukee) and I think I will check that person out…thanks again!

  • Lloyd said,

    Hi Ruth
    Sure, you can ask the owner for advice. Explain to them what you are trying to achieve. At worst you might get a chuckle but then again you might get someone who can help you and give you some insights. Let your intuition guide you when you are talking to the shop owner and when you are touching the stones.

  • Paul Von said,

    Hello Ruth and Lloyd,
    I worked for several with stones and minerals in an authentic ‘rock shop’ where I did lapidary work- cutting, shaping, polishing of semi-precious stones. I once was sensitive enough to discern which way a stone or mineral wished to align with Earth’s magnetic fields. The stones ‘spoke’ to me, and it was very interesting work. Long story short: EMF and mercury amalgams in my teeth, have since destroyed my health. Thus I am pretty disconnected from those sensitivities.

    In my experience, Tourmaline was an excellent protective mineral, and is listed as such in many shamanic cultures. There are a number of colors, and it’s generally a bit softer than a 6 hardness. I have a very large black tourmaline crystal, which is fully in tact. It has a strong protective benefit, and seems to have a very grounded vibe.

    It’s a good idea to let the stone or mineral ‘come’ to your hand, rather than “choosing” it from a bin. It’s rather easy to become energy confused in many of the ‘head’ shops, because of the (often) chaotic vibes coming from the various mixed stone bins, etc. Yet if you stay quiet and receptive, you’ll know when the right mineral or stone comes along. Hope that helps.

  • Bhavna said,

    One question Lloyd:

    If the stones have energies associated, they must change the EMF meter readings when around.

    Does that happen?

  • Lloyd said,

    Stones energies work at the subtle energy level, like that of our bodies. An EMF meter is not sufficiently sensitive to record these energies and the frequency range is too low – most RF meters only measure up to 6 or 8Ghz.

  • Svetlana said,

    Hello Lloyd,

    I have a question about orgonites and orgone generators. (They are combination of crystal, epoxy and metal and supposed to neutralize and transform harmful EMF.)

    Was wondering if you’ve had the chance to actually experiment with them and measure if they really work as supposed to, or is it just another hoax?

  • Lloyd said,

    Hi Svetlana
    Orgonite is a composite man-made material and so is quite different from the stones and crystals I speak about on this page which are naturally formed. I’ve not tried orgonite but there are people who claim that having it around is beneficial…there are also people who claim that chips,diodes and neutralizers work…none of the ones I have tried work.

  • Elaine- said,

    your website leaves me kind of hopeless, but i just bought some black tourmaline, worth a try i guess… but you said that you tested YOUR BODY for the earthing shoes, why don’t you test your body for the tourmaline? wouldn’t it be the same sort of concept? … correct me if i’m wrong

  • Lloyd said,

    I tested the earthing effect of my earthing shoes with a multimeter, as described here http://www.electricsense.com/4119/earthing-shoes-my-review/. Stones and crystals operate on the subtle energy level, these energies are very difficult to measure, a multimeter cannot get anywhere near measuring this. If you don’t feel comfortable choosing stones, an energy practitioner, a kinesiologist for instance, would be able to test if tourmaline or another stone is beneficial to your body.

  • Elaine- said,

    thanks Lloyd, i have black tourmaline as a necklace now and sea salt in little bowls around the place, seems to have helped… as crazy as it sounds lol

  • Dave Kushin said,

    Hello Lloyd,

    Do you have any familiarity with Biogeometry or knowledge of its effectiveness or lack of effectiveness regarding EMF?


  • Lloyd said,

    Hi Dave
    An Egyptian architect called Dr. Ibrahim Karim is one of the pioneers in this field…you can find his videos on Youtube. It’s an interesting field….another possible way of dealing with EMFs.

  • Dave Kushin said,

    Thank you very much, Lloyd.

    I appreciate your response.


  • Jessica said,

    Thanks for the article! very helpful. I have been carrying around a black tourmaline for a long time. Same one. Thanks!

  • Linda Abbott said,

    I have made necklaces with Kyanite beads which have helped two family members overcome symptoms of tinnitus, headaches and insomnia (& joint pain in one case) brought on by installation of ‘smart meters’ in their apartment buildings. However, I can’t help but worry that that is insufficient protection, since these wireless microwave transmitting devices are pulsing radiation at people’s entire bodies, non-stop. Other crystals to try could be Selenite and Unikite, though others might be worthwhile to experiment with, too.
    perhaps setting up a “grid” of one stone (eg. beads) along a wall would be an interesting project to try with an EHS person.

  • Janice said,

    Hey Lloyd, we got a 60 inch LED Samsung Dec. 13th, and 3.5 months ago had two Quantum Biofeedback Sessions, which aren’t supposed to hurt you, and maybe I’am still going through major detox and maybe that machine did put me into ES overdrive, didn’t know MCS was the same as ES before…
    But I heard Sunday that selenite and amythst (sp) are great for sucking in these negative energies….but today was using Green Fluorite, and Green Adventurine at the same time, it gave me such a great calming of peace and relaxation.

  • Janice said,

    Lloyd I just found out the Quantum Biofeedback Machine didn’t make someone with MCS go into ES overdrive, the inventor of the machine really is aware of electricity dangers in the body, but what did happen is usually the 2nd and 3rd treatments people feel itchy due to detox, and their atoms jumping around, the practitioner should have calmed down my systems in the body but she didn’t know this and never told me. So this leads to my experience feeling (I hope) like I have ES, ontop of the LED TV which undoubtedbly affects me, in either case seriously catching up on a water filter system and serious EMF protection which I need for the future anyway. Had to throw this in so others can also read this.

  • M.ElSiddig said,

    It was useful article , if you can add more about individuality for each Stone in EMf and daily various activities .

  • lincoln stoller said,

    A note regarding the “cleaning” properties of crystals and electrical filtering devices. The filtering devices largely apply to the cleaning, or filtering of current. Current is easy to measure, its sources are easy to identify as are the sources of noise added to it. The currents generate fields and our bodies respond to the fields. Just as the currents can be cleaned up, so can the fields, but the fields are much weaker especially at their higher frequencies. Crystals and Faraday cages act as recifiers to impede the alternation of the field, and as transducers to convert or absorb harmful frequencies and, possibly re-emit them at other wavelengths. We know the human body works in this fashion because we’re all familiar with how our position in relation to a radio receiver will affect the quality of the broadcast. Crystals do the same thing but, since they effect the field which is much weaker, and modulate frequencies that are all over the spectrum, we cannot measure their effect to any degree in comparison with our ability to effect the currents. The bottom line is that both reflect the same “dirty” frequencies but cleaning the current is vastly easier to do and to measure. Cleaning the field is both position and frequency dependent, and is a much weaker effect. As a result we can have verifiable products that clean up verifiably noisy currents and we can assign a value to these products, we cannot do the same with those products that clean up the fields. Even more problematic, the field cleaning devices — crystals, cages, and grounding sheets — can act as amplifiers and focusing agents for harmful frequencies with deleterious results. Hopefully this helps people understand the dual and different roles of EMF cleaning devices. – LS

  • Kazina said,

    lincoln stoller I am very interested in what you’re saying. but I do think that if you are going to accuse crystals of being negative and deleterious that you should elaborate. I am not denying it but if that is a possibility for one thing you should warn people how to prevent it or provide common culprits or mistakes. because as you ascertained crystals also likely have transmuting powers. So please if you can supply more details that would be greatly appreciated.

  • Kazina said,

    Paul Von, I do not trust your judgment at all, as what you say doesn’t make sense to begin with, but also those disorders are not “all non-curable” nearly any disease or disorder can be reversed with proper Earth reintegration and dispelling of toxicity. and crystals can help protect us wonderfully from the horrible threats all around us. But we must control what we put directly in or on our bodies, and I am guessing you along with other people under the trap do not eat a clean organic raw diet making sure to get all nutrients in ample supply. So that is why you remain so sick. because you still eat and drink and slather poison on yourself. The amalgam fillings are a huge problem yes, but they are the literal tip of the iceberg so to speak lol as our teeth sort of are. It is expensive but you are not doomed so if you wanted to get the toxic metal removed from your mouth you’re a big boy and you can do that.. We’re all dealing with aftermath and current reality of the evil powers that wannabe. but using Earth as we are born to gives us back a lot of our power, which is love nature energy and stronger than b.s. You can even protect yourself using your imagination and color, so it is far from out of the question that crystals help. Also color therapy is scientifically proven, so even crystals being a color can help heal and protect, not to mention their subtle magic Earth properties which you recognize. So anyways, stop poisoning yourself and feeling sorry for yourself and heal yourself if you want to. or don’t, but don’t talk senseless smack about crystals =)P
