#1: Black Tourmaline
Black Tourmaline is considered to be one of the most powerful protective crystals. It is known for transmuting negative energy into positive energy, making it an excellent choice for ghost hunting.
This crystal is also believed to enhance psychic abilities, which can be helpful during paranormal investigations.
It has a funny texture that is not smooth but jagged. There are smooth variants, but they tend to break quickly for me. I guess it has to do with the composition of the crystal itself.
Why black tourmaline works so well
One of the main reasons black tourmaline is so effective at protecting you from negative energies is its unique chemical composition and crystal structure.
Black tourmaline is a mineral that belongs to the group of complex borosilicates. It contains various elements, including aluminum, iron, magnesium, sodium, and lithium.
What makes black tourmaline so special is that it has a high concentration of iron, which gives it its dark color and magnetic properties.
This magnetic property of black tourmaline makes it such a powerful protector. Negative energies and emotions, such as stress, anxiety, and fear, can create an energetic imbalance in your body.
Holding or wearing black tourmaline can help neutralize these negative energies and restore balance to your body’s energy field.
Another reason black tourmaline is such a tremendous protective crystal is its piezoelectric properties.
When you apply pressure to black tourmaline, it generates an electrical charge. This charge can help to repel negative energies and protect you from their harmful effects.
In addition to its chemical and physical properties, black tourmaline also has an intense spiritual energy that can help to purify and protect your aura.
By wearing or carrying black tourmaline, you can create a protective shield around yourself that can help to deflect negative energies and promote a sense of calm and balance. This benefit is beneficial during ghost hunting or paranormal investigations.
As a psychic conducting psychic sweeps of locations, this is one of my go-to crystals to boost and shield me when needed.
Black tourmaline is a wonderful protective crystal that can help you feel more grounded, centered, and protected in haunted locations or think you might be impacted by negative energy.

Smokey Quartz is another crystal often used for its protective properties during ghost hunting. Let’s take a closer look at why this crystal is believed to protect paranormal investigations effectively.
Smokey Quartz is a variety of Quartz that gets its characteristic smoky brown color from natural irradiation and the presence of aluminum in its crystal structure.
One of the reasons Smokey Quartz is believed to be effective during ghost hunting is its ability to absorb negative energy.
It is said to act as a shield against psychic attacks and negative energy, making it an ideal crystal for paranormal investigations.
It is also believed to have a grounding effect, which can help keep you centered and focused during your ghost-hunting activities.
Great benefits of smokey Quartz during ghost hunts
In addition to its protective properties, smokey Quartz is also believed to be a powerful energy amplifier. This means it can enhance the effectiveness of other crystals and tools used during ghost hunting, such as pendulums and dowsing rods.
I tend to place my smokey Quartz in my left pocket when I use my pendulum on site. In my experience, I gain more accurate readings this way. It can be a placebo effect, of course. When you believe things will work, you have more difficulty concentrating and opening up to the Ether.
Finally, smokey Quartz is believed to be a powerful cleanser and purifier.
After a ghost-hunting investigation, it’s essential to cleanse your energy and clear any negative energy that may have attached itself to you during the investigation.
Smokey Quartz is said to be particularly effective in helping to purify your energy and restore balance to your system.
In conclusion, smokey Quartz is an excellent protective crystal for ghost hunting due to its ability to absorb negative energy, ground you, amplify energy and cleanse your energy after an investigation.
Amber is a beautiful and ancient gemstone used for centuries for its spiritual protection properties. As I am from the Baltic region, it is a widespread “crystal” for protection. I know the Vikings used it as well!
I feel like a Viking warrior princess, but with style! I bought my necklace when I visited Riga in Lettland not long ago.
Amber is warm and golden, and I love wearing my amber necklace wherever I go! Look at the luster; it is truly unique. I bet you can tell I love Amber.
Amber is believed to have a powerful protective energy that can shield against negative energies and psychic attacks.

Black obsidian is a popular choice among ghost hunters for its protective properties.
I have black obsidian in my crystal tool kit, but I must admit that I use it very seldom. It tends to interfere with my psychic readings for some reason. However, many use it without problems to be just me and my specific abilities.
I tend to bring my obsidian mirror on-site to scry if needed. I leave it in my kit outside the investigation site and grab it if needed.
It is good to know that many fake obsidians are on the market. Genuine obsidian crystals or stones can be on the expensive side. Be sure you buy from a trustworthy seller so you don’t get a piece of resin.
I share information on my recommended products page if you want to grab an obsidian mirror, as it can be used as both a crystal for protection and as a scrying tool.
Why obsidian is a great choice
Black obsidian is a volcanic glass that forms when lava cools rapidly. It is composed of silicon dioxide and other minerals that give it its distinctive black color. Its unique composition makes it an excellent energy conductor and a robust negative energy absorber.
When it comes to ghost hunting, negative energy can be a concern. It is believed that ghosts and other entities can emit negative energy, affecting the living in various ways.
This is where black obsidian comes in. As a powerful absorber of negative energy, black obsidian is believed to protect ghost hunters from any negative energy present during their investigations.
Additionally, black obsidian is believed to have a grounding effect. When investigating paranormal activity, staying grounded and centered on maintaining a clear head and remaining focused is essential.
Black obsidian is said to help with this by anchoring the wearer to the earth and promoting a sense of stability and security.
In conclusion, black obsidian is an excellent protective crystal for ghost hunting due to its ability to absorb negative energy and promote grounding.
Hematite is a popular crystal among ghost hunters for its alleged protective properties.
Hematite is a mineral that is composed of iron oxide. It is typically dark gray or black and has a metallic sheen.
Hematite is a common mineral found in many parts of the world and has been used for centuries for its alleged healing and protective properties.
One of the reasons hematite is believed to be effective in protecting ghost hunting is its ability to absorb and transmute negative energy.
It is said to act as a shield against negative energy, making it an ideal crystal for paranormal investigations.
It is also believed to have a grounding effect, which can help keep you centered and focused during your ghost-hunting activities.
In addition to its protective properties, hematite is believed to be a powerful energy amplifier like smokey Quartz. This means it can enhance the effectiveness of other crystals and tools used during ghost hunting, such as pendulums and dowsing rods.
When things get emotional
Finally, hematite is believed to have a calming and soothing effect on the mind and body. This can be particularly helpful during ghost hunting, as investigations can be intense and emotionally charged.
As a psychic, I benefit from hematite as it can smooth the edges of sharp emotional peaks. It is no secret that many ghosts and spirits have something difficult in their past that needs to be resolved. This often comes with lots of emotional baggage built over the years.
In conclusion, hematite is an excellent protective crystal for ghost hunting due to its ability to absorb and transmute negative energy, ground you, amplify energy and promote a sense of calm and tranquility.
As you notice, almost all protective crystals are black. This is often an easy way of knowing what to reach for in your crystal tool kit.
With time you will learn what crystals you like more than others. It can also be differences between crystals of the same kind! Some I love, and others don’t work – even if they are black tourmalines.
It is also good to remember that crystals don’t work for everyone. Don’t get discouraged if they don’t do their magic the first time you use them. Sometimes, it can take time. If you don’t believe in crystals, they often don’t work.
