Healing autism and Asperger's syndrome with crystals and stones

Crystals can be used to ease the traits of autism and Asperger's syndrome

Crystals are a powerful way to heal a range of ailments including some of the traits of autism and Asperger’s syndrome.

The crystals have been formed over many millions of years and have unique physical properties that emit strong vibrations and energies.

These have effects on the aura and energy fields of humans. They can help to energise and rejuvenate cells in the body and provide deep healing to the mind, spirit and soul. This makes crystals excellent for children and adults with autism and asperger’s syndrome.

The bright colours of crystals mean that they are fun to look at and often people with an autism spectrum disorder will like to be hands on, and feel the texture of the crystals. This helps to bring autistic people back into the physical word and out of their inner world.

Crystals are powerful healers for many conditions, including autism. This could be that their powerful energies help to balance those with mind conditions such as autism.

There is also the suggestion from those that believe autism is triggered by some sort of toxic exposure in susceptible children that crystals can counteract this.

Whatever ths possible explanations, it’s clear that crystals have beneficial effects upon the minds and bodies of those who come into contact with them, and even more so with those people who really ‘tune’ into the crystals by focusing their energy and concentration on them.

Two of the most popular crystals for people with an autism spectrum disorder are moldavite and Sugulite.


Moldavite is one of the rarest crystals on the planet and occurs in an black, green or olive.

Moldavite is a high frequency stone for transformation that is great for very sensitive people who struggle be on earth. The crystals eases autism, epilepsy, brain imbalances and malfunctions.

Moldavite is a crystal to wear if you for people who spend lots of time alone, as many with autism do, according to The Illustrated Directory of Healing Crystals: A Comprehensive Guide to 150 Crystals and Gemstones. The reason is that the crystal helps those who wear it connect to the wider universe.

Moldavite is said to have been formed by a meteor from outer space. It has numerous healing qualities for autism

The stone has emerged as one of the healing crystals most prized by metaphysical users, and hundreds of stories about its transformational properties have been told. It has been credited with innumerable powerful life changes.

It can also be successfully to treat emotional distresses such as loneliness, panic and anxiety that can accompany autism.

Autism facts

Autism spectrum disorders begin from birth. Autistic children and adults with typically have reduced social skills, low communication and often exhibit repetitive behaviour.

Autistic people often insists on having routine and are arverse to sudden changes.

The severity of autism in differing people can range from severe, where sufferers may need assistance in most areas of there life, to mild, where people live fully functioning lives.

Many people with Asperger's syndrom excell academically, and there could be few outward signs that they have an autism spectrum disorder.

There is not a known cure for autism. However, many parents of children with autism have found different ways to alleviate the traits of the disorder.

Recent estimates suggest that as many as six people in every 1,000 have a form of autism.

Sometimes people can be given therapy to help them with their behaviour and speech, while many develop their own ways of coping as they become older.

To get the benefits of Moldavite, place it on the third-eye chakra or the crown chakra – or even both.

The common wisdom is that Moldavite crystal is a catalyst for inner evolution towards one’s highest good. The changes it brings can be intense and rapid, but they are, by all accounts, significant and valuable to the individual.

The healing can occur in the physical body, one’s chakra system, one’s dream life, one’s awareness of healing spirit guides and other aspects of the spiritual dimensions, one’s career, one’s relationships and just about any other dimension of life where crystal healing can be useful.

The origin of Moldavite is still under discussion, thought by many to be purely extraterrestrial; a meteorite that has fallen to earth because of its chemical composition, yet others state the mineral is the result of fusion between a meteorite and the earth upon impact to specific earthbound mineral deposits, either way the mineral is at least partly due to extraterrestrial origin.

Moldavite's 'outer space' qualities can affect the consciousness of those who connect with it, and in the cases of autistic people, they may become fascinated with the crystal's palpable mystery.

Chemical Composition varies but is mostly silica glass with impurities of magnesium, iron and other elements. There are known deposits in the Czech Republic and the surrounding area, yet other locations make claims to having deposits

Moldavite with hematite is a good combination for an autistic child because it facilitates both integration and grounding.


Sugilite is a rare, waxy, opaque, purple crystal. It is believed to be a very protective and nurturing stone, good for sensitive people who are affected by other people's attitudes.

The crystal is also said to be beneficial for those who feel alienated and ‘out of place’ – as can happen with people with autism who have loneliness problems. Sugilite may encourage positive thoughts, release emotional turmoil, promote self forgiveness and encourage inspiration and feelings of confidence.

Sugilite is a good stone to aid the release of anger and rage and to help someone understand the deeper meaning of life's struggles that are necessary for soul growth. Many autistic people have difficulty connecting with and expressing their emotions, and this crystal could help with that.

Sugilite helps sensitive people to ground themselves in the present and helps with learning difficulties. It’s an excellent stone to help those with autism and Asbergers syndrome by grounding them in the present moment, instead of them being in their head.

Sugilite is one of the major love stones and comes with a purple ray energy. It represents spiritual love and wisdom and opens all chakras to the flow of that love, bringing them into alignment.

Sugilite inspires spiritual awareness and promotes channeling ability. Sugilite teaches how to live from your truth and reminds the souls of its reasons for incarnating.

The stone opens all the chakras and brings them to alignment. It can help bring answers to deep questions such as ‘Why am I here, what’s the point in life, Where did I come from or Who am I?’ The crystal helps sensitive people adapt to the Earth’s vibration.

This loving stone protects the soul from shocks, trauma and disappointments and relives spiritual tension. Sugilite can also help to bring light and love into difficult situations

Sugilite is a great crystal when applied to relationships of all kinds.

It can help ease insecurity, paranoia and it is even suggested that it can calm the minds of those with schizophrenia. Sugilite is a useful stone for work with groups as it resolves group difficulties and encourages loving communication. Many people with autism or asperger’s syndrome have difficulty with human relationships and communication.

Sugilite is said to help soothe headaches, discomfort, align the nerves and brain, subdue heart palpitations and soothe frayed nerves.

Sugilite’s ability to reduce negative energy can help to channel healing energy into the mind, body and spirit.

Sugilite crystals are rarely found and when they are it is in large quantities. It was first described in 1944 by Ken-ichi in Japan. Now It is found now in a number of other countries around the world.


Gold is perhaps the most precious metal on the planet. It can also be used to balance right/left brain conditions associated with autism. Healing uses for Gold include the treatment of blood, skin, neurological and heart disorders.

Gold is believed to to be an energy generator that can remove blockages to strengthen, amplify and conduct energy trhoughouts the body.

Many believe that gold can also be used to treat autism, dyslexia, epilepsy and scoliosis. Historical medical useses have also included alleviating rheumatoid Arthritis.

Gold has historically been used to treat nervous problems and anecdotal evidence links it to autism

In 2005, a report by The Age of Autism's considered why gold had such healing properties after a child diagnosed with the condition improved after treatment with gold salts.

Some people suggested that gold can alleviate autism where it may have been triggered by some sort of toxic exposure in susceptible children, such as through mercury in vaccines.

This idea was also suggested in a report in 2002 by the Meridian Institute. The paper was called ‘Gold and Its Relationship to Neurological/Glandular Conditions.’

Gold is was found to have been used since the middle ages as a nervine to treat mental and physical conditions such as anxiety.

The study’s authors said that there was a ‘long tradition’ of gold being used medically but this was only in indicudal cases and there had been o clinical trials.

They added that there was ‘encouraging evidence of the potential’ for gold to be used as a nervine.

      Rocks Heal because they are made of the same stuff we are. Quartz crystals specifically keep time in your watches.

      -- A quartz clock is a clock that uses an electronic oscillator that is regulated by a quartz crystal to keep time. This crystal oscillator creates a signal with very precise frequency, so that quartz clocks are at least an order of magnitude more accurate than mechanical clocks.

      Our bodies naturally conduct electric current and crystals help with that. We call it healing.

      I have a hard time believing rocks can change your mental function, unless you are getting hit in the head with them.

      is hematite good for autism and schizophrenia?

      very informative article. I myself have recently been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome AKA high-functioning autism and I have an older brother that is severely autistic with schizophrenia. this is the first time that I've seen a well written, researched article based on the connection between crystal/stone healing and autism. as a nutritionist, I myself know the relationship between nutrition (minerals because our body is filled with them and we need them in order to keep our body strong) and autism by researching a lot about nutrition online, listening to alternative news, reading books/articles based on Homeopathy, Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine pertaining to the seven chakras. because of this article and with a little help of some friends of mine that are knowledge about stones and crystals, I just bought some stones and crystals, especially sugilite and howlite, just to name a few. since I am also well aware that we are all made of energy, I am hoping to try out the stones/crystals on my older brother and god hoping he changes slowly for the better from all of those prescription drugs he's been taking all these years since a child.

      Hi Lipancy, Personally I would say half an hour a week good, especially for children. If you all enjoy it you can start to do it a three of more times a week as everyone becomes used the energy levels. Be careful not to overdo it at this stage though.

      I found this interesting as some with aspergers syndrome and is also interested in crystal healing. My favorite stones are hematite, rose quartz and amethyst. I once worn a tiny piece of moldavite inside a glass pendant but found that in made me feel odd and fuzzy after a few days so I had to stop wearing it though I couldn't bring myself to give it away to t is hanging in my room now.
