Crystals for Someone Who Is Dying


Q. Dear Ron and Sue, I am hoping you can help and give me some advice on crystals for someone who is dying. My dear friend has a terminal illness and is dying. Her doctors have only given her a few months to live. Unfortunately, she is having a hard time coming to grips with her circumstance and is not coping too well. She is definitely in denial and in fear of dying. She has always loved beautiful things and has often admired my crystal collection, so I was wondering if there are some crystals that could help her at this time. Is there is a crystal that will help her to transition through this time and pass peacefully when her time comes?


Crystals for Someone Who Is Dying

A. We are sorry to hear about your friend and we hope this information will be helpful to both you and your friend.

Passing or the transition into and through death and beyond is a fear-filled time for some. This can be especially true for those who are not prepared for it, either because of a belief system (or lack of one) or because of denial. For some, this is more so than others. And let’s not forget about the fear of the unknown. For those who are open to it, crystals may indeed make the whole affair much more gentle and accepting. As death comes near, crystals can make the experience of transition so much calmer and less fearful.

All of the crystals listed below will provide comfort and support, whilst letting her know that she is not alone. They can also buoy those who are providing support at this time.  These Crystals for Someone Who Is Dying are just as beneficial and supporting for those who are left behind to grieve, as they are for those who are passing.


Amethyst, ‘release’ is a prime function for this crystal, as well as reducing the emotion of fear. It addresses the fear of the unknown, along with the fear of death. It helps to relieve tension and stress and to dissolve the bonds that tie us to the physical plane. Amethyst promotes emotional poise. It diminishes anger, rage, fear and anxiety. Alleviates sadness and grief and supports coming to terms with the loss. During the passing process, it also helps to ease the transition and provide comfort to those who are grieving.





Carnelian conveys acceptance of the cycle of life and removes the fear of death. It grounds and anchors you within the present reality. In ancient times it protected the dead on their journey to the afterlife. According to the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Carnelian placed inside tombs acted as a “magic armour” for the life after death. It gives courage which is particularly helpful when facing the unknown. It will also help you to trust in yourself and your view of the world.


Chiastolite is a highly spiritual stone as the cross within it is seen as a sign from God. Known for having highly protective qualities since ancient times. It has the power to dispel negative thoughts and feelings and to help you find your path as it transmutes conflict into harmony.  It is a gateway into the mysteries and is supportive when making the transition into death. Chiastolite facilitates understanding and exploration of immortality, along with death and rebirth. It dissolves illusions and calms fears, enabling you to face your current reality.


Kunzite encourages the energy of love into your life, including experiencing the love of the Great Divine Spirit. Its vibration helps to release negative feelings, heal emotional problems such as anxiety and stress and relieve panic and fear. Lilac Kunzite is a Celestial Doorway and a symbol of infinity. It assists with the transition for the dying by imparting the knowledge the departing soul requires and helping them move over into enlightenment. It breaks through the barriers of time into the infinite.


Kyanite stimulates psychic abilities and intuition. It helps you connect to your spirit guides and instils compassion. It also grounds spiritual vibrations and articulates spiritual integrity and maturation. By cutting through fears and blockages, it helps those who are making the transition through death.

How to use Crystals for Someone Who Is Dying.

A crystal, any crystal or selection of crystals is an excellent gift for a person who is dying. Or even for those feeling affected by their coming transition.

A heart-shaped crystal that they could hold and fondle would be most suitable. Any of the crystals above would be a good choice, however, if you feel drawn to another, by all means, use it. Rose Quartz is also a popular choice because of its soothing, loving and accepting properties, as is Rhodonite. Amethyst would be quite suitable for this purpose also.

Crystals put together in an attractive bag or pouch is another good way to use them. Place these under the pillow of the person, so their presence can provide comfort.

Utilize a selection of crystals in a display of some sort. Perhaps used to cover a pot with a plant in it, or strategically placed on a tray of raked sand to form a mini Zen garden.

Of course, crystal jewellery may also provide comfort and joy.

Naturally, the individual who is dying may also procure these crystals themself; they need not be gifts.
