Throat Chakra Stones: Speak Your Truth

We all tend to wear stones quite frequently at the level of our throat chakras. The shorter necklaces often have pendants that fall at this level, and the true chokers unavoidably hug the throat. We're probably going to be wearing pendants on a neck chain anyway, so why not choose stones that support our prosperity magick?

Under the New Age rainbow chakra system, the throat responds to the frequency of pure blue light, giving us the power to communicate clearly and effectively. Being able to speak your truth and be heard is a key skill for any prosperity seeker. The ability to communicate is life or death for anybody in sales-- and these days who among us doesn't have to sell others on our knowledge and skills at least sometimes?

Of course, for the past few centuries, we often "speak" through our writing. That's fine. Many workers have reported that using celestite (a pale blue crystal) really helps the words flow out when they're writing. I have a celestite crystal cluster on my desk to support my writing, and I'm absolutely convinced that it works for me. Why not give it a try? Flourite is another classic stone for this purpose. I have a Flourite slab in shades of teal blue but you'll also find this particular crystal in several other colors, most notably purple and yellow.

There are so many classic blue stones that it's impossible to discuss them all in a single article but I'll mention a few that you may already have in your jewelry box-- turquoise, blue topaz, aquamarine, lapis lazuli, or even blue sapphire. (The blue topaz is likely to be treated to deepen the color, and the blue sapphire may be a lab-created stone.) A stone I often wear at the throat is called azurite-malachite, a relative of turquoise that is both deep blue (the azurite) and green (the malachite). I happen to wear it set in silver on a shorter chain to hold the stone at my throat, but with those colors, it does blend the powers of the heart and the throat chakra. Sometimes, when we try to communicate on a deep level, emotion may come up from the heart to fuel our words. Whether that is for good or for ill depends a lot on how well you channel your energies-- and your words. Speak with power, and you could change your world.

Mother Nature loves the color blue, and there are also some extremely common, inexpensive blue stones that you can choose. Blue lace, amazonite, and sodalite can often be found sold as small tumbled stones for as little as $1. If nothing else, you can always slip one of these stones into your pocket when you're working to improve your communication skills and to open your throat chakra so you can speak clearly.

Green and Pink: Stones of the Heart Chakra

I've talked a lot about how to use Green Aventurine, Moss Agate, and Emeralds in Crystal Cash: Fast Easy Money Magick Using Popular Stones, since they're truly some of the classic crystals of prosperity working. However, in any discussion of the heart chakra, we become aware that there are many, many other stones that people have used to open their hearts to receive love from the universe. If you truly feel loved and cared for, you may be far more open to receiving material evidence of that love.

Rose Quartz, Watermelon Tourmaline, and Pink Tourmaline are so powerful that I plan to eventually devote a post to each of them. For now, let's take a quick look at some of the stones in the photo that you might not have tried before to support your heart chakra-- and maybe bring a little more growth and prosperity into your life.

The sphere is an interesting item owned by Peachfront Press and originally hand-crafted by spheremaker Jim Meeker. Unakite is a pink and green granite, so it combines the classic colors of the heart chakra (which are the classic colors of spring) with the down-to-earth stability of ancient granite. You'll get some debate about how different people use this stone metaphysically. But, for me, I think it's a good one to focus on bringing the love down to earth, where we can feel and bask in it. You can often find pocket tumbles of this material for $1. It's a nice one to carry and let it work on your aura while you're not even thinking about it.

Watermelon Ruby is a stone I've touched on before, both in this blog and in Crystal Cash. In short, it's a natural Ruby crystal (not usually gem grade) growing in a softer green material. I like to wear it on a lace or a chain just long enough to let it fall to my heart.

Ah, and the Moldavite. There's a controversial stone for you. The piece in the photo was purchased and bought around 1990 as an unworked teardrop of this natural stone. In recent years, there has been a scandal, with numerous accusations that people are creating fake Moldavite by pouring modern green glass of the right color into molds. Unfortunately, that's probably pretty easy to do, since Moldavite is NOT a crystal but instead a natural glass that formed from volcanic lava. You may want to be very choosy about where you buy your Moldavite, since it can be fairly pricey. I do have a few tiny pieces left, which I may feature in some upcoming giveaways.

As for its purpose... well, I was always told that it could remove secret hurts in your heart that might be holding you back. Sometimes people get very emotional the first time they wear a Moldavite. If you feel like you keep getting in your own way, you may want to experiment with this one. But be warned. I was told that you should wear it in a quiet, peaceful, private place the first time. Later on, after it has spoken to you, and you're really just wearing it for pretty, then you don't have to be so cautious. But in the beginning, if you think you might be digging into some deep emotional blocks, you may want to use caution. I don't remember digging up any great dragons from the depths when I experimented, but it's still just as well to take care. If nothing else, you may gain some interesting insight into why you do certain things that block your own path to greater riches.

Malachite is another favorite for the heart chakra. Here are a couple of specimens from the Peachfront Press collection:
