The Magic of Blue Crystals
Blue has been associated with healing and calming the mind since the time of the ancient Egyptians, where the priests powdered lapis lazuli for use in ceremonies.
Blue is the first colour we recognise when we see coloured objects. Our eyes contain more receptive cells for blue than any other colour. The largest spaces we see are the sea and the sky. With the presence of blue so strong in our lives, it is easy to see why blue stones should be so appealing to us.
From the paler blues of aquamarine and turquoise through the medium blue of sapphire to the deep blues of sodalite and lapis lazuli, blue stones have fascinated us for many millennia.
The colour of communication
Blue is the colour that stimulates the throat Chakra, so blue stones are usually good for conditions associated with throat and the voice. Blue has a calming effect on the emotions and the mind and also expands as you look at it, creating the idea of space. Blue stones are therefore ideal for use when you feel distressed, or trapped by your current circumstances.
The colour in blue crystals
Each colour of the spectrum has a specific rate of vibration, producing electromagnetic waves that can affect is physically and psychologically. The colour of a crystal is determined by the rate at which its atoms vibrate when light is refracted through it.
- Blue light is created by electromagnetic waves from 4300 to 4900 angstroms long, with blue green shades in the range 4900 to 5100 angstroms.
- Blue has the second largest range of wavelengths, after red. It is therefore an extremely important and powerful presence in our lives.
The wavelengths of light passing through blue crystals resonate with the throat chakra. Place blue crystals around your home to fill it with clam and peaceful vibrations. For your mind, body, spirit blue agate crystals can be used on our throat Chakra, in meditation or as a touchstone charm.
