Blue Calcite is a gentle crystal which helps physical healing by clearing negative emotions and is, therefore, a wonderful aid to use when recuperating. It is said that it can work as a natural sedative after an emotional trauma such as the death of a loved one. It has a purifying energy which works to clear any negativity stored either within the body or our environment, either at home or work. It does this by raising your or the vibration of the space it is in.
It is called the “Stone of the Mind” as it can help us to look at new ways of thinking in order to shed light on a situation and release old limiting beliefs or thought patterns. It can also help students retain information, especially whilst studying for exams.
Blue Calcite amplifies the energy within the Throat Chakra which allows for clear, calm communication, especially between people with opposing views.

Important to Know
As with all crystals you use regularly, don’t forget to cleanse and recharge it at least once a month.
For crystal healers who use crystals in their work, they should be cleansed after each client to remove any negative energy prior to being used on someone else.
PLEASE REMEMBER: Although the powers of crystals and stones are well documented and have been proven to help bring positivity into people's lives, they are never a substitute for medical advice.
