Blue Chalcedony is a demure crystal, subtle and mystic, cool and serene, ethereal yet solid. It has an inviting, soft blue translucence, and an almost imperceptible movement within the stone that invokes a stillness of silent reverence. It’s calming, and speaks of spirit and trust.
Light in hue, Blue Chalcedony is the color of shallow pools of water reflecting the sky as winter gives way to spring. It marks the beginning of life and emotion, and is a color of faith and trust. The Light Blue color ray helps us reflect on, question, and relax in our acceptance of the life we have. Light blue talismans help us develop patience, reconcile differences, or seek forgiveness. They’re excellent for recovery efforts from addictions or destructive patterns, aid in curbing tempers, and help us become more dependable and cheerful. Light blue crystals also assist in dealing with grief, letting go of the past, and curing guilt.
Chalcedony is a member of the Quartz family with a cryptocrystalline structure, perfect for magnifying its crystal energy to soothe and restore balance, from the conscious mind to the inner child, all the way down to the animal self. Its name may be derived from the Greek port city of Chalcedon. The ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece and Rome used varieties of Chalcedony in jewelry and carvings, and, as gems of antiquity, they were believed to imbue their holders with certain powers.
Chalcedony is known as the Speaker’s Stone, the stone of one who must measure his words. It encourages reflection and meditation, its gentle radiance preparing us for action but helping to hold back words we might regret. The great Roman orator, Cicero, is said to have worn one around his neck.
Considered a nurturing stone, Chalcedony absorbs negative energy and dissipates it before it can be passed on. It promotes brotherhood and good will, opening the mind to new ideas, instilling feelings of benevolence and generosity.
Chalcedony was considered a sacred stone by the Native American Indians, using it to promote stability during their ceremonial activities. It is still in use today for meditations, and as a pathway for receiving successful thought transmissions.
Blue Chalcedony is an excellent crystal for public speakers and those who speak for a living. Lawyers and political speakers are said to benefit from touching this stone to the tip of their tongue while listening to their opponents to enhance their counter arguments. Similarly, actors might rub it against their lips and throat, while singers may drink a glass of water in which Chalcedony has soaked for an hour before going on stage. Wearing this crystal around the neck helps overcome stage fright and the fear of public speaking.
As a stone of peace and peace-making, Blue Chalcedony encourages stillness and calm in the home for those at odds with one another, vying for their place in the pecking order. It is also beneficial for daily journeys to work, or stressful trips involving children.
Chalcedony is useful for treating chronic hoarseness and inflammation of the throat. It protects against weakness in general, bad moods, obsessive jealousy and depression. It reduces sleepwalking, soothes chilblains, and is a source of protection during travel.
Blue Chalcedony encourages the flow of fluids within the body and reduces edema. It helps with sensitivity caused by weather changes or pressure, such as glaucoma, and stimulates milk production in nursing mothers. It helps alleviate plant allergies, hay fever, and other respiratory problems. It aids in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and dementia, childhood illnesses, gallstones and inflammation, and may soothe the symptoms of autism and Asperger’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome, bi-polar and obsessive compulsive disorders.
Chalcedony eases self-doubt and brings a helpful peace to inner reflection. It can remove hostility and encourage a light-hearted optimism.
Blue Chalcedony calms and centers the emotional energy field. It is an excellent crystal for those who tend to worry, by encouraging life in the present instead of projecting into an imaginary future. It also assists in calming those with bouts of irrational anger, fear, panic or anxiety, and helps those who speak too quickly before considering the impact their words have on others.
As a stone of communication, Blue Chalcedony stimulates the Throat Chakra.
Blue Chalcedony is a powerful stone for communicating with Spirit. It is very beneficial in repairing wounds and deep anger patterns in the energy field. It stimulates telepathy and all communications with the invisible realms, assisting in the remembrance of past lives and articulating regained wisdom. Because it connects to the subconscious, Blue Chalcedony is a good stone for those in therapy or those who counsel others.
As a calming stone, Blue Chalcedony assists in meditation if your mind is naturally over-active. Gaze into the depths of the crystal and listen to your inner voice of wisdom, speaking in your mind.

Tourmaline aids in understanding oneself and others. It promotes self-confidence and diminishes fear. Tourmaline attracts inspiration, compassion, tolerance and prosperity. It balances the right-left sides of the brain as well as male-female energy in the body. It helps to treat paranoia, overcomes dyslexia and improves hand-eye coordination. Tourmaline releases tension, making it helpful for spinal adjustments. It also enhances energy and removes blockages. Tourmaline is a shamanic stone, providing protection during ritual work. Although Tourmaline may be found on every continent, fine crystal specimens and gems are still considered rare and can be quite expensive.
Tourmaline is a marvelous tool for balancing the right/left hemispheres of the brain and bringing mental processes into alignment with the chakras and auric body. It diminishes fear and may be useful in treating paranoia, and to overcome dyslexia by improving eye/hand coordination and the assimilation and translation of coded information.
