Broken or Lost Crystal Meanings

sheila of satin crystals holding a broken rhodochrosite massage wandHave you ever lost or broken a crystal? When you physically lose or break a crystal, it can be emotionally distressing.

By understanding the metaphysical meaning of why this happened, you can overcome the sense of loss more quickly. You are about to learn that there's nothing to fear. In fact, breaking or losing a crystal opens the door to a new world of opportunities. 

What does it mean if I lose my crystal?

There are three different metaphysical interpretations regarding lost crystals:

1. Some people believe that a lost crystal means that you no longer need the energy of the crystal and it has gone to another person or place that needs it more.

2. The other interpretation is that you need more of that stone's particular energy and the piece you had was too strong or not strong enough for your purposes.

3. The third interpretation is that the energy of the crystal was not compatible with your vibrations. 

If your crystal has disappeared, wish it well on its journey. Hope that the person who finds it will benefit from the crystal's positive energies. We are all connected; spreading the healing crystal love is much needed right now. Your crystal was a blessing, and now you pay it forward. 

If you do find the crystals again, it means that you needed a little break from the crystals' energy and you are now ready for its good vibrations once again. 

How to Replace your Lost Crystals

Your crystal is gone, and this is the Universe's way of telling you to get another one right away.

But how do you know which new crystal to pick? Here is a quick way to decide what crystal could give you the greatest advantage right now:

Close your eyes and quickly as yourself these questions. Answer without thinking: "Should I replace my lost crystal with a similar one or a different one?"

If your Higher Self answered that you should find something similar, you can go ahead and start your search right away. Check out the grand selection at Satin Crystals and Shop by Stone to find your perfect piece.

If your Higher Self said you need a different crystal, you want to find out what kind of energy you need right now. Is it time to focus on Love, Abundance, Calming, Happiness, Spirituality, Protection, or something else?

Close your eyes again and ask this question: "What aspect of my life do I need to work on in this very moment?"

Now that you have a better idea of what you want, you can search for a crystal that helps with your intention. Shop Crystals by Intention and find your perfect pieces.

What do broken crystals mean?

When your crystal breaks, the spiritual significance is similar to that of the lost crystal. You either no longer need its energy, you need more of the energy or you were not on the same wavelength as the crystal. 

Instead of mourning broken crystals, transform them into something useful.

What can I do with my broken crystals?

If your crystal is broken, chipped, or scratched, it can still be used for healing. Depending on the severity of the injury, your crystal may be perfectly fit to continue on its metaphysical mission.

We called these imperfect crystals "wounded warriors."

Just like we humans get bruised and hurt along life's path, crystals get dinged and scarred as time goes on. That doesn't mean they are useless, they have just endured hardships and come out stronger. 


Here are some ideas for your broken crystals: 

If you don't want to use your broken crystals for healing, you can transform them.

  • Add them to your chakra plate

  • Place them in pots and gardens (your plants won't care what the crystals look like)

  • Add them to a clear vase and let them build up into a colorful display

  • Press them into a sculpture, stack them up, glue them with other materials to create intriguing art pieces

  • Make them into magnets for your fridge

Can I glue my broken crystals?

Yes, you can glue your broken crystals together. If you think about polished and carved stones and beads, they have already been manipulated from their raw state. A little glue is not going to hurt them.

However, if you are working specifically with the energy of raw, unaltered stones, you will not want to add glue to the chipped areas. In this case, you may just want to keep working with the remaining crystal as-is.

Your Crystal Intuition

Only you hold the answer to your specific metaphysical interpretation of your lost or broken crystal.

If you have trouble accessing your subconscious mind or listening to your intuition, we would recommend meditation or learning how to open the third eye chakra

Do you have book for the crystal meanings?

Hi Rashmi, thanks for your questions. We have just created this blog about broken crystals because it is an extremely popular question!

For your specific case, no it is not bad luck that your Moldavite chipped. When this meteorite was created millions of years ago, Moldavite splintered into numerous pieces from its asteriod origin, scattering all over Europe. Today if your Moldavite has splintered, the energy has no difference, just like it did not millions of years ago. Size wise, it may have a little less energy, but nothing you should notice considerably in your pendant piece.

Then again, it is totally up to your intuition and how you feel about the altered pendant now that it is chipped. If you feel like it’s fine, just a “wounded warrior” like the rest of us, then you can continue to wear and heal with it as before. If you feel like it has lost some of its powers, I would replace it for a fresh Moldavite pendant.

I had bought a moldavite pendant from you some time back. It’s edge got chipped of accidentally I wanted to know is it still use ful by that I mean does it still hold its healing properties or do I have to by a new one also does a breaking of moldavite hold any significance. Also is it bad luck if a moldavite chips off.
