Blue Crystals - Healing

Article

Our eyes are more receptive to the colour blue than any other colour. Blue is prominent in our surroundings, in the sky, in the sea, and with so much blue in our lives it is also easy to see why this colour is associated with a sense of space which expands our consciousness.

Since the time of ancient Egypt, the colour blue has been associated with healing and calming the mind. The Egyptian priests would powder the crystal, lapis lazuli, for use in ceremonies.

Lapis lazuli has long been used for healing in relation to the respiratory and nervous systems. It also promotes quietening of  the mind,  and is an excellent crystal to assist with self expression, writing, creativity and dream insight.
