Can you tell me the appropriate crystal to use with a child suffering from ADHD? You help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for stopping by our store. ADHD can be tough to deal with for both the parents and the child. Although this disorder, under many different names, has been studied over the past century, not much is known about causes or cures, and some treatments are proving themselves to be detrimental to the patients health. I would encourage you to learn all you can through your doctor and to research alternatives available. In the meantime, here are a few crystals that might be able to lend their energies to this child.
Amethyst is the first stone that comes to mind. It is a peaceful, calming stone that can help bring spiritual energies into one's life, to bring insight and to help with intellectual difficulties. Amethyst is often used to help with overall brain function, aiding in the assimilation of new input. Meditation could help, although I realize that it can be tough for any child to accomplish this, much less one who has ADHD. However, here is a suggestion: When out of school, it might be helpful to have the child sit in a calm environment, holding an Amethyst Crystal that has much detail within it, so he/she can try to gaze into the stone and maybe fall into that deeper state of consciousness, without really trying. One of my favorite types of Amethyst is the Beta Crystals we have on the site. I have had much success with this crystal during meditation. The larger the better, so it is easier to gaze into the crystal. You can see the Amethyst Beta Crystals here:
Smokey Quartz can be a great crystal to use in combination with Amethyst. It has the wonderful healing energies of Quartz, but can calm the emotions and ground scattered energies, which is good for hyperactivity. Smokey Quartz can clear out energy blockages, bringing a greater flow and balance to the subtle bodies. It also works to consolidate energies into one purpose, thereby enhancing focus and concentration. Many people like to work with Smokey Quartz because it helps them to release extraneous vibrations and patterns that are not condusive to well being. It too, can be helpful for acheiving a deeper state of consciousness for meditation, due to the many veils and fractures that can often be seen inside the crystal.

Green Tourmaline is said to be good for hyperactivity, and for improving concentration. It is a healing stone of the Heart Chakra that promotes the implementation of one's creativity. It can aid in balancing the hemispheres of the brain, which contributes to focus. It can transmute negative energies into positive, bringing patience and compassion. Green Tourmaline has been used traditionally to work wiith hyperactive children.

It may be helpful for the child to carry one of these crystals in the pocket, on a regular basis, but actual contact between the crystal and the skin could have a better effect. If you do decide to order, it may be helpful for you to say something in the comment box mentioning that you are looking for crystals that have fractures and veils within them for help with meditation.
I hope this helps, and I wish you many blessings.
Peace and Blessings,
