I regularly get requests for information on stones used in crystal healing for cancer. So I’m sharing this information on crystal healing stones used for cancer.
Please remember: Crystal Healing is a complementary, spiritual healing technique. The information I share is not intended to be a prescription or replace any kind of medical care. See your doctor about all illnesses including cancer.
Stones used in crystal healing for cancer:
amethyst, annabergit, azeztulite, azurite-malachite, bloodstone, colbaltite, fluorite, gold, hematite, red jasper, kernite, lapis lazuli, lepidolite, melanite, moonstone, malachite, natural glass (the obsidians would all count in that area), pumpellyite, petalite, rhodochrosite, rose chalcedony, sapphire, selenite, smoky quartz, spinel, sodalite, sugilite, tourmaline, and uvarovite.
For tumors (cancerous or otherwise) here are some used in crystal healing:
argenite, beta quartz, bloodstone, lepidocrosite, linnanite, malachite, mangesioferrite, natural glass (again, the obsidians would count here), paracelsion, petalite, pumpellyite, quartz with carbon inclusions, sarcolite, selenite, wad, xonotlite.
In addition, crystals that relate to the energies of the chakra or body part affected are used. For instance, pink stones which relate to the heart chakra are often used in complementary crystal healing for breast cancer.
I tend to avoid red stones when working with people with cancer issues, because red is such an aggressive color. So when working with 1st chakra issues with stones when cancer is present, I almost always go with black stones instead of red.
Some people working with crystal healing feel that working with green crystals and cancer is inadvisable. I have been told that this spreads the cancer because of the growth promoting energies of green. I have not seen this in my experience, but it is something you may want to keep in mind.
In the end, there are many different crystals used in complementary method of crystal healing for cancer. Choose the one(s) that you are drawn to for working with. Even if a stone is not on this list, that does not mean it’s not useful, just that it is not on this list. So if you feel drawn to use another in crystal healing, that seems a good choice to me.
