Best Crystals for Forgiveness


Crystals are said to have all sorts of different properties – some believed to be healing, others believed to have protective qualities. The list goes on. One of the most important things for any person looking into crystals is finding the right one for their needs, which can sometimes include forgiving someone or something.

Here are the best crystals for forgiveness:


Hematite grounding, centering, embracing your strength and ability to forgive yourself for past mistakes.


Amethyst promotes peace of mind and clarity which helps you to feel more grounded and connected with the earth. It releases anxiety and nervous tension that leads to forgiveness. It can also soften anger or resentment from within so that it dissipates instead of being held onto as a negative force in your life.


Dumortierite clears away anger, resentment, fear and depression so only love remains. It’s an especially good stone for clearing people who have hurt us out of our energy fields so we can let them go with love instead of keeping them in our lives where they will continue to drain our energy every time we think about them.

Rose Quartz

Rose quartz is a stone of unconditional love that opens your heart chakra so that those who have harmed you can receive forgiveness without even having to ask for it because you send it automatically.
