Blue Chalcedony is known as the Speaker's Stone, and encourages reflection and meditation to open energetic doorways to manifest our thoughts into the spoken or written word. It also helps us hold back words we might regret, as it supports us to really listen to those around us, including our guides. Blue Chalcedony specifically opens the mind to new ideas and washes away rigid of thinking.
Chalcedony is a member of the Quartz family with a cryptocrystalline structure, which is 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 is derived from the Greek port city of Chalcedon. The ancient Mediterranean civilizations of Greece, Egypt, and Rome, all known for their philosophers and writers, prized Chalcedony and used it for jewelry, carvings, and mosaics.
Chalcedony is considered a sacred stone by many Native American tribes and was used to promote stability during ceremonies. It is still in use today for meditations, and as a pathway for receiving successful thought transmissions.
Considered a nurturing stone, Chalcedony absorbs negative energy and dissipates it before it can be passed on. It promotes sisterhood and goodwill and opens the mind to new ideas, as it instills feelings of benevolence and generosity. Placing it in the Northern part of our altar or home invites the soothing, playful energy of water. A stone of peace and peace-making, Blue Chalcedony encourages stillness and calm in the home, workplace, or even in our daily commute.
