9 Essential Gemstones You Need When Traveling


As crazy as traveling with a bag of rock sounds, there is something to this practice. After all, gemstones have been used for millenniums to bring about healing in all aspects — physical, mental, and spiritual.

This is especially true when we’re in periods of anxiety or fear, both of which can happen when we’re traveling in unfamiliar places. That’s why using these gemstones will go a long way to calming your nerves and bringing you a gentle reminder to stay calm and present!

There is A LOT of electromagnetic pollution these days — mostly from our computers and phones. But when we go to the airport, this effect can be magnified due to the scanners and x-ray machines. But Shungite absorbs and neutralizes this harmful radiation. Carry a few in your pocket to create a shield of protection.

Tiger’s Eye

Tiger Eye is a stone of protection and very grounding. It enhances integrity, willpower, and practicality. It also brings out good luck and prosperity, drawing unforeseen circumstances to you when traveling.


Similar to Malachite, Moonstone is considered to be a traveler’s stone. Moonstone brings good fortune and supposedly grants wishes to the user. It’s also a very uplifting stone, as it carries the entire spectrum of light.


Labradorite is all about destiny! This gemstone brings events and coincidences to you for your favor. Basically, the universe opens up to you in unexpected ways. This is because it taps into your intuitive side, drawing it out and helping you to meet people. Carry this stone in your purse or pocket.


This stone is THE energy shield to protect you from negativity. This can be especially good for city living, business, travel, and martial arts. It also counteracts feelings of lethargy and sluggishness.


Perhaps the most important in the list, Malachite is considered to be a guardian stone for travelers. The energy of this stone protects you from accidents and physical danger. Just keep one in your pocket to soothe your nerves. It’s a stone of change and transformation, which makes it especially helpful for jet lag, allowing you to energetically ‘shift’ from one state to another.

Black Tourmaline

Black Tourmaline is an excellent grounding crystal for meditation and healing, keeping you level headed when traveling. This stone is also great for emotional vampires and anyone who wants to drag you down.


If you’re on a romantic getaway, you’ll definitely want this stone! Known as an emotional balancer, Rhodonite is believed to nurture the love between yourself and your partner. This can be really important when traveling because things can get stressful at random moments if plans fall through or weather ruins things. Afterall, you don’t wanna be arguing right? Place this stone beside your bed or somewhere in the room, you’re staying.


Amethyst might just be one of the most powerful gemstones out there. It repels negativity brings you to a deeper relationship with your spiritual self. It’s also a natural stress reliever and calms anxieties. This is a great stone to use while meditating as well!
