Crystals for Seniors

By Sonia Acone


With the incredible abundance of crystal information available today, there are literally thousands of crystals that can be used to help anyone and almost everything, from information on crystals for children, crystals for our homes and crystals for our pets. There are even crystals to use for our cars and places of business. However, there seems to be a lack of information on crystals that can be used for/by seniors. Let me clarify something first - by “senior” I don’t just mean the elderly. I am including any person who might be a “mature” adult, over the age of, let’s say 40, or anyone else who’s been “around the block a few times.”

The list of crystals below is by no means exhaustive. I’ve tried to cover the most prevalent conditions (emotional, physical and spiritual) that people might experience as they age, or those that a loved one might be going through. If you are a caregiver, there are also crystals that can help you as well when dealing with caring for another, so please see this article:

Each entry below (listed alphabetically) is followed by a list of crystals that can help with that ailment/situation. You may use all of them, or whichever one you feel drawn to. For a more complete list of common conditions, see this list:

  I found the information on all the gems very interesting. I had no idea that some of my gems could be of help to me now. Instead of sitting in a box I shall now bring them out and use them for what they were intended. Especially the ones for sleep, and stress. I look forward to reading more about the gemstones. I came upon your site quite by chance, I am lookin for a gift for my Aunts 85th birthday. And I thought there was a special one for 85. But alas there is not. But it lead it to your site which has made me very happy. So it has been a good search,

  Hi there,
I've collected gemstones for years but have not looked into it's many healing properties until lately. This page, I will be visiting often. Last weekend I made some Chakra bracelets and handed them out to people at the Senior Center. I was amazed at the positive feed-back received by two of these people. I volunteer at the Adult Day Care Program in the Senior Center and as you can imagine we deal with many ailments. The most prevalent is Alzheimer’s disease. I will be using some beds mentioned here to make them bracelets, hoping they will wear them daily.

Thank you very much for all your work here.

  I think you should add carnelian for death and dying. It has brought much comfort to those I know who have been in that transition.  (Submitted by: Sally on January 08, 2018)
