Blue crystals are beautiful to look at and also have a wonderful energy about them. They help with intuition and communication, as they are connected to the throat chakra. Blue crystals come in many different shades, each one with a unique property.
Quartz is one of the most common crystals found on Earth and each shade helps its users with a different obstacle. Blue Quartz is a light blue crystal, often mistaken for Sodalite. This crystal is all about self expression and creativity. Whatever is on your mind, Blue Quartz helps you get it all out into the open! If there is anything you have been keeping to yourself, Blue Quartz helps you tell the world naturally.
The most popular blue crystal for fashion, Sapphire is commonly used for designing rings. This crystal is the birthstone for September and can come in many colours (except red, which is Ruby). There are trace amounts of iron and titanium in Sapphires and they often undergo treatments to improve their colour and clarity. Lab-created Sapphires are cheaper than natural ones, as they can be very expensive.
Lapis Lazuli is, in my opinion, the most beautiful blue crystal, as it has a deep blue shade and golden hue. This crystal is full of mystery and has many tales to go along with it. Lapis Lazuli is said to protect people against the evil eye and was a favourite of Michelangelo, as he used it on the Sistine Chapel. This crystal is full of creativity and self-awareness, helping its users become their own anchors.
Zircon is great to use when meditating and developing psychic intuition. It is said to get rid of negative energies and protect the aura. Zircon can also attract honour, wisdom and success. It has also been said to help people become better organised! Zircon is found all over the world, but finding good quality gems can be rare. Their price can vary depending on clarity and size.
Just like the ocean, Aquamarine helps wash away any worries or stresses in your life. When you bring it into your environment, it fills the area with tranquillity, relaxation and calmness. Aquamarine embodies the energy of the sea, so is perfect for anyone who constantly longs to be on the beach! It has been said that Aquamarine helps its users feel young and full of energy.
