Most protection stones are related in some way to the Root Chakra because of their survival and security nature. Most red and black stones, as well as many brown and gray stones, are also related to the Root Chakra.
Below, I’ve listed some stones and what they can help with in regard to the root chakra. These are by no means the only stones to use… these are just a few.
This stone is greatly energizing, it’s methodical in its action, and removes negativity. It assists in bringing creative solutions to light with stressful situations.

As you can see, many of these stones can be used together and learning about each stone will help you with what combinations work best for you.
How to pick stones that will work best for you is actually quite simple. When you shop for stones you need to trust your intuition… plain and simple. If you pick up a stone and you get a strong feeling either good or bad, you really need to trust that feeling. If you were to buy a stone that really doesn’t feel right it could actually cause you harm. Yes, you can cleanse stones but it’s better to go with stones that feel right to you instead.
Purchasing stones online makes this more difficult because you’re not always getting the stone you see in the picture. So if you have to purchase online seek a reputable seller and try to buy in bulk that way you have a variety of choices.
Money can be an issue when buying in bulk. So what I suggest is to leave the negative thoughts about money behind. Negative money thoughts will only make things more difficult for you. So give this a try… focus on what you want… build up your energy with that focus all the while putting love and light into the energy… now once you have built what you feel is enough energy… release it into the universe with confidence and a smile that it is going to come to you. Do this as much as you can… maybe every day for a week… constantly putting that positive energy on what you want.
Ok, now tomorrow we are going to look at different types of balancing and healing techniques for the root chakra. I hope this is helping you to understand more about the root chakra.
In Love & Light Always,
