Rest deeply and awake refreshed with one of these 9 sleep-friendly gemstones.
Need some help getting to sleep, staying asleep, or improving the quality of your sleep? Here are 9 crystals that can help you sleep, along with brief descriptions of their energetic dynamics to help you choose the one that’s right for you.
Try sleeping with one under your pillow, near your head, in a pouch around your neck, or in your hand. Or in some cases. Also consider adding a couple of drops of a gem essence to a cup of bedtime tea.
Amethyst, a violet variety of quartz crystal, is highly purifying to the aura. It opens the crown chakra and aligns you with divine wisdom. Sleeping with it brings healing energy to your dreams, promotes deep sleep, and attunes your brain waves to the frequency of calm.
Ammonite promotes sleep by smoothing rough and toxic energy. This ancient fossil also supports relaxation, immunity, physical health, and energetic protection, and therapeutically restructures your aura (your personal energy field) while you sleep.
Angelite is a sky blue crystal that supports creative problem solving during dreamtime. It helps you relax and release by aligning you with divine timing and reminding you that everything is perfectly unfolding. This soothes the mind and allows you to let go. Additionally, angelite attunes you to the angelic realm, facilitating a flow of angelic communication and guidance while you sleep.
4. Black Tourmaline
Black tourmaline is protective, grounding, and calming. It neutralizes frenetic energy and provides a palpable flow of deep relaxation throughout the body.
5. Clear Quartz
Clear quartz is a crystal that is relaxing to some and energizing to others. If you fall into the former category, you’ll find they have the added benefits of clearing your energy and shielding you in positivity while you sleep.
Hematite helps you sleep by clearing the mind of excess worry and mental chatter. This stone relaxes the body, heals emotional pain, and brings expansive comfort by plugging you in to a constant flow of strengthening nourishment from the earth.
Jade has a beautifully soft and loving energy. It soothes the mind, opens the heart, and smooths away the rough edges of the day. This crystal reduces stress and increases overall harmony and balance. It’s particularly useful for counterbalancing money worries as it has the added benefit of attuning us to the frequency of wealth.
Labradorite helps balance brain chemistry and replenish brain power while you sleep. This shimmery crystal also helps awaken intuition, making it useful for those on the spiritual path. And, labradorite can help us bust through stagnant energy and blocks by bringing old, unhelpful patterns and shadow aspects to light during dreamtime.
9. Rose Quartz
Rose quartz is among the most healing crystals in existence. This pink crystal promotes relaxation by softening harsh energy of all varieties and bringing healing to the mind, body, and emotions. It protects your energy naturally by cocooning you in sweet and gentle energy. Rose quartz is a great crystal ally to choose when you’re learning to practice self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-love.

So my gemologist friend told me it’s good to wear hematite for it absorbs negative energy But that I should take it off before sleep.
Tess Whitehurst says
Well, everyone responds to crystals differently, so you can try it both ways and see what works for you.

Hello! I am right now as we speak, trying (rather my hubby) is trying your list of crystals to help him sleep better. We have a wonderful crystal & other thing’s store in our little town, yaaay! So I went and purchased the appropriate crystal’s, brought them home, laid them on our bed, saged them & without touching them, I put them in a little pouch & put them under his pillow, I asked him the immediate next morning like I alway’s do, “how did you sleep?” great he said, he hasn’t said great since, but pretty good. So I do have a question, he’s know’s I bought the crystal’s specifically for him & his awful sleeping issue, but, because I know he won’t wear them on him to pick up his energy, I put the pouch of crystal’s on the inside on the underside of his pillow. (he doesn’t know this part) would they work even better if he were aware? P.S he already think’s I’m a little ‘out there’ in the most loving way, we’ve been married for 19 1/2 year’s, so I’m not sure how seriously he would take/treat it. I would appreciate any of your wisdom on this. Also my sweet neice has been diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer, I’m going to research your great site & see what crystal’s you may recommend, but any advice & what crystal(s) do you think would be helpful for her? Thankyou again, have a blessed day, Sharon
Tess Whitehurst says
Sharon, I wouldn’t worry about leaving the crystals there without his knowledge. That will not affect his free will, it will simply change the vibration around him in a positive way. As for your niece, I suggest fluoroapatite: https://www.etsy.com/market/fluorapatite
