7 Crystals To Heal A Broken Relationship

Crystals for relationship

Crystals have a multitude of benefits but perhaps the most prominent of these is in relationships and love.

Not only can certain crystals increase your confidence and your ability to think through situations with a calm mind, but they can also aid in communication and promote forgiveness and compassion. You just have to find the right crystals for you and your situation.

Can crystals be used to heal a relationship?

There is no crystal that can fix an issue in its entirety, but crystals can be extremely beneficial in balancing your emotions during traumatic situations such as the breakdown of a relationship.

Love is connected to the heart chakra so the best crystals to use are ones that resonate with this area of the body. A blocked heart chakra can lead to emotions such as jealousy, anger, hate and a feeling of detachment from others. So if you looking to heal a broken relationship, these crystals can really help you to view the situation with an objective and clear mind.

Below are some of the best crystals to help heal a broken relationship.

Interestingly, amazonite crystals resonate with both the throat and heart chakras, making it the perfect stone to not only heal emotional issues but also increase your confidence and ability to communicate. When your emotions are out of balance, you will often find it difficult to view a situation with clarity, and instead find yourself becoming frustrated which can lead us to act out and say things we don’t mean.

Rhodonite is also a crystal for nurturing the inner-self which will help you to achieve your full potential, but not in a selfish way! Instead, Rhodonite will focus on gifts and skills that promote altruism such as cooperation, understanding, and generosity.

This crystal also works with the throat chakra so it helps with self-expression and self-awareness. This strengthening of self will encourage you to express your true thoughts without fear of rejection and allow you to take charge of a situation so it is particularly beneficial if you are suffering from a lack of confidence in a relationship. When you feel more confident within yourself, you open the door to accepting more harmonious and beneficial relationships.

Often in relationships, blame gets passed back and forth in a vicious cycle. Peridot will help you to take responsibility for your actions and so approach conflict in a more balanced way. It also invokes you with the confidence to speak your mind with conviction but with kindness at its heart.

7. Malachite

How to use crystals to heal your relationship?

As discussed earlier, crystals can help you heal your heart chakra so ideas, insights and solutions come to you that will help you heal your relationship. Here are two ways that you can use crystals for this purpose.

1. Meditate with the crystal for opening your heart chakra

One of the best ways to use crystals for emotional healing related to the breakdown of a relationship, is to place one directly on your heart and meditate. This will allow the stones’ healing energies to be directly absorbed by the area in which their benefits are most needed.

Meditation is known to relax you physically, mentally, and spiritually, slowing your heart rate and helping you to achieve a sense of serenity and calm. This practice opens you up to receiving the healing benefits that crystals provide and assist you in achieving a greater sense of awareness that will help you to see previously unseen solutions and insights.

2. Use crystal grids for healing

Crystal grid

Crystal grids can also be beneficial, especially if the relationship breakdown has occurred in the home you share with a loved one. Also known as energy grids, crystal grids are designed to amplify and direct the energy of your chosen crystals with the use of sacred geometry like the Tree of life. There are hundreds of grid layouts and crystal combinations to choose from so it is important that you choose the one that feels right for you and your situation.

However, the general setup is that you would choose one central crystal and then align your other crystals around it. Once you have narrowed down your intent for using a grid, you can write it on a piece of paper and place it under the central crystal of your grid which will amplify your desire. Perhaps not surprisingly, rose quartz is commonly used as the central stone for grids designed to promote emotional healing, with clear quartz and moonstone being common surrounding crystals. However, it is important to choose the crystals that feel right for you.

Things to bear in mind

The most important thing to bear in mind when working with crystals is to ensure that you cleanse them regularly. Most crystals work by absorbing negative energies from their surroundings, which can eventually build up and make the crystals less effective.

Many crystals can easily be cleansed by soaking them in clean water however this is not suitable for all crystals, so make sure you research the best way to cleanse the crystals you choose. Other ways to cleanse crystals include leaving them out overnight under the light of the moon, leaving them in sunlight for a few hours, or cleansing them using a purifying incense such as white sage.


Love is the foundation of human life, but we are not just talking about physical love here. Self-love allows you to be the very best version of yourself, without reservation or fear of rejection, and can open you up to receiving love from those around you. Broken relationships are often the result of long-standing resentments and built-up frustrations. Practicing compassion and learning to trust your own instincts will help you to form positive relationships and keep the lines of communication open to promote harmony and understanding.
