Today, let's look at the beautiful crystal Chalcedony
This lovely stone comes in several colors: White, pink, red, grayish and my favorite blue. I will write a bit of information on each one later in this post.
Chalcedony is a fairly common stone that can be found in several areas – US, Austria, Czech Republic, Morocco, Brazil, Russia, Turkey to name just a few.
Chalcedony is very uplifting and nurturing. It is also thought that it can assist in thought transmission and telepathy. In one course that I am studying now, telepathy, I will see if it can help and I will get back with you if I have good results.
This stone brings our minds, body, spirit and emotions all into harmony allowing a spirit of generosity and mindfulness. This stone can remove negativity bringing new light and life into ideas that are new and seemingly enlightened.
Chalcedony is a powerful stone of healing.and cleansing and for open sores. It is known for lessening the effects of both dementia and senility yet it can benefit us through physical strength. It can help ease tension in our muscles and assist to heal eye issues as well as gallbladder, blood, spleen and the circulatory system.
It is suggested that chalcedony should be worn around neck, fingers and placing them over which organs as appropriate.
There are specific colors that have additional properties you will find below.
Blue – this is considered a “creative stone” as it helps to open the mind in receiving new information and it also helps with new situations you might have. Blue as in the Blue Chakra (throat) - it can assist you with better listening skills as well as communication. As far as working with our physical bodies, this stone can assist with strengthening the immune system, as well as helping to rid yourself of edema. It helps with the lungs and it can lower your blood pressure. Chalcedony can also aid with clearing the respiratory system of the effects of smoking.
I am looking forward to working with this beautiful stone as I smoked for 33 years, quitting back in 2013, but I am now fighting with lung problems and COPD myself. I thought it funny as I have been thinking about this stone for months, really drawn to it. I suffered with severe edema the first of the year and really could have used it then. Perhaps though, my body needed to search out this crystal as it knew what help I needed.
The next one is Dendritic Chalcedony which is a whitish-gray or colorless chalcedony with fern-like inclusions known as dendrites. This stone promotes clear and very precise thought. Dendritic Chalcedony also helps you to remain calm in hectic situations and also can assist you with having to deal with unpleasant situations. Dendritic is also helpful with chronic illness, where it is suggested that this stone be worn for long periods of time. It helps fight off the effects of smoking for years and can help to strengthen the immune system.
Pink Chalcedony – being the color of the heart chakra this stone encourages kindness and all the good qualities one would want. This is a spiritual stone that can encourage inner peace, and a sense of trust.
And lastly, Red Chalcedony can help you to reach your goals through strength and
determination. It can help you to bring about your dreams through helping you to devise different strategies to accomplish them. Physically this stone can stimulate circulation without raising blood pressure.
I should have known being such a strong pull, that I needed the chalcedony!
