Drie edelstenen tegen Stress

Three Gemstones against stress

Do you suffer from tensions, anxiety or stress and do you suffer from this? Are you perhaps looking for a gemstone that helps with stress ? Then read in this blog which gemstones can support the reduction of stress and tension.


Stress can have one or more root causes. This can be due to insecurity, work pressure, not really feeling who you are or that you always ask too much of yourself or that you are asked too much of you.

It can sometimes seem as if your environment always determines everything about you and you constantly have to meet imposed expectations. The cause of stress is therefore that your carrying capacity (that which you can handle) is not in balance with your burden (that which is asked of you).

There are several ways to reduce stress , such as seeing where the stress comes from. More and more people experience the positive effects of gemstones.

In this blog I will tell you which gemstones can help you to be less stressed, but I think it is important to say that I always advise a specialist or doctor in case of health problems. Before I explain gemstones in more detail, I'll give a brief explanation of how gemstones work so you can understand how a gemstone can help reduce stress.


A gemstone, like humans, consists of vibrations and therefore has its own energy field. This is also called frequency.

A gemstone has its own frequency through its vibrations and by wearing a gemstone, the vibrations come into contact with each other, just like you can sometimes feel the energy of other people. This allows the vibration / operation of the stone to affect your energy field, so you can experience fewer complaints.

Fact: Did you know that a radio also contains gemstones / quartz for the FM frequency? There are also watches that use quartz.

Experience the power of gemstones against stress

By wearing a gemstone, your body takes over the vibration of the stone and you can experience fewer complaints and feel better. A gemstone jewelry is a good choice, because you can easily carry it with you in your energy field and it also looks beautiful!

There are several gemstones to let go of things and experience less stress. Sometimes you may do research and there will be a different stone for each source. I have made a selection based on the operation and my own experience.

The stones below all help against stress, with each stone that is described, the focus is slightly different. You can find this in the conclusion, in which we indicate in which situation the gemstone is ideal. You will also find these stones as gemstone jewelry in our webshop.


First we start with a very well-known gemstone. Amethyst is a very well-known and fine stone. The stone has a protective and purifying effect. Amethyst promotes self- understanding and helps you to be honest with yourself about behaviors that can be harmful and not in service to your highest self. It helps you to recognize and deal with addictions . In addition, the gemstone also provides insight into emotional processes through which certain (painful) experiences can be processed and avoiding behavior in this area can also be changed.

Amethyst is also very suitable for purifying a room because of its cleansing effect. Together with rock crystal and rose quartz, it creates a harmonic atmosphere, also called the golden triangle . Because it stimulates the upper chakras, it can promote intuition, spiritual growth and insight, especially for people who are just starting their spiritual journey. Amethyst also has a cleansing effect on the body and a positive influence on the nervous system, headaches and migraines and sleeping problems .

Other gemstones that also help against stress

Labradorite - First I come to labradorite. Labradorite is a popular and beautiful stone and I myself have a very nice experience with it. It is an ideal stone for people who are highly sensitive or who pick up stimuli quickly. Because of this I personally find it a very nice stone against stress.
