There are a few black crystals and gemstones that can be used for protection, but I’m particularly fond of Obsidian because it’s made from cooled lava! I love that something so dangerous and destructive can take on another form with new meaning. It has strong connection to Mother Earth, so it’s no surprise that it’s connection is also to the root chakra.
