Blue Calcite Properties
Calcite, which comes in dozens of colours, is a form of calcium carbonate, which is the mineral that makes up chalk.
While its name comes from the German word calcit (meaning limestone) and only came into use relatively recently, in the ancient world, calcite was grouped together with gypsum and called “alabaster” for its fair, milky colour.
The largest piece ever found was discovered in Iceland, but calcite is found all over the world.
It is one of the most common parts of the sedimentary stone, and even appears in the shells of sea creatures. During the Second World War, it was used for gun sights, due to its ready availability.
However, blue calcite is special.
The calcite is clear, whitish, or pale grey, and when calcite takes on different colours (due to microscopic quantities of other minerals or metals contained within the crystal matrix) its energy shifts, and it takes on unique characteristics.
Blue is an incredibly powerful spiritual colour, so of course blue calcite has powerful spiritual properties when it is used by a mindful practitioner of crystology.
However, it is also the color of the throat chakra – the energy center of your body that guides your communication.
Blue calcite can therefore help you to speak more clearly, and feel less shy, especially if you often get put on the spot or struggle to find the words to articulate your ideas and emotions.
This even extends to technology too – even electronic communication like text messages and emails are ruled by the throat chakra, as spirituality doesn’t discriminate. It’s still energy, in the form of communication, being sent back and forth.
Therefore, this crystal can often help you to word things in such a way that they don’t get out of hand, or get misinterpreted or misread as hostile when you’re just trying to state your point.
Blue calcite stones are stones of healing, recovery, communication, and even the development of psychic or paranormal powers.
Why Would You Use Blue Calcite?
If improving your psychic powers is something that interests you, then blue calcite is the stone to use to achieve this.
Blue calcite stones, accompanied by Tourmalated Quartz, are incredibly useful for developing psychic abilities, especially the abilities of telepathy and psychic empathy.
The reason that blue calcite is so useful for developing these powers is that, at its core, it is a communication stone. This power is tightly linked to its colouration.
In Indian mythology, blue is the colour of the throat chakra, which is the chakra that rules all forms of communication.
In Ancient Egypt, it was the colour of life energy, which flows through all living beings to connect them. In modern western thought, blue is the colour of holy communication and the Holy Spirit.
Blue is a strong colour for communication, and the pale, milky opacity of calcite is also an indication that it has a spiritually enhancing property, much like clear quartz or moonstone – whitish stones often have this power, because white is the combination of all other powers.
The combination of blue and white powers in Blue Calcite indicates that it is a powerful tool to use to improve your communication.
This is specifically a stone for communication that lies outside the boundaries of what is considered “natural.”
Some self-described psychics have purported that blue calcite has helped them to develop links to higher powers that allowed them to converse with gods or angels.
Others find that it enhances their ability to psychically communicate with loved ones, such as becoming able to intuit when their loved ones are in danger, even if they are miles away and have no logical way of knowing this.
If psychic communication rests outside your comfort zone and is not something that you are interested in pursuing, that’s all right!
Blue calcite can have other benefits in your life too, especially if you combine it with some of the pink crystals. For example, you can use blue calcite to clear negative energy from your aura or your environment, as it has the power to gently fan away toxic energies that may be “sticking” to you.
In “The Best Combinations to Use with Blue Calcite,” I will discuss some combinations of stones that you can use to capitalize on this power.
It can also be used to enhance your communicative skills on a more “day-to-day” basis, rather than a psychic one, similarly to the September Birthstone.
Even if you’re not interested in developing telepathic skills, you may find that you benefit quite a bit from the ability to intuit your loved ones’ feelings and the willingness to discuss these feelings more openly.
How Will Blue Calcite Help You?
If you pair it with Wulfenite, blue calcite can strongly help you if you feel that you are unsure of what is happening around you from an emotional perspective.
Have you ever had someone get angry at you for what felt like no reason at all, leaving you feeling hurt and defensive, and then later be shocked that they’re shocked that you’re acting coldly towards them? Me too!
This is a trap that many people find themselves in – it’s easy to “lose track” of other people’s emotional complexities, which are always changing after all!
And once you lose track of someone’s emotions, it can be very hard to get a bead on them again, as emotional experiences are usually highly influenced by past emotional experiences.
Blue calcite can help get you “back on track” with your understanding of other people’s emotional experiences.
It will make clear what was previously opaque and help you to understand what previously seemed inexplicable.
Blue calcite can give you a unique ability to improve your relationships due to this improved sense of communication.
While many stones that are known to improve relationships do it by harmonizing your natural energies, calcite actually helps bring disharmonies into the light.
At the same time, however, (and this is what makes it such a strong stone), it makes it clear that these disharmonies are not necessarily a huge problem.
Almost no one can be one hundred percent harmonious, one hundred percent of the time. The trick is dealing harmoniously with your disharmonies!
That’s where blue calcite comes in – its calming energy makes it possible to smooth over the rough patches of a relationship and actually talk through disagreements, leading to a better overall result than just hoping for the negative moments to be washed away completely.
If you are interested in developing your psychic powers out of the scope of your daily life, then you will undoubtedly find that blue calcite is a wonderful stone to do this with.
Because of its link with the throat chakra and with communication, it is a “safer” stone to use when developing psychic powers than some others.
As long as it is developing your psychic powers, it will also be developing your relationships with those around you, making it possible for you to reach out to others when you need help.
This is a form of “grounding” quite different from the use of stones that link you to earth or enhance your root chakra – it will actually “ground” you in your human support structure!
How to Use Blue Calcite for the Best Results
Because blue calcite is linked to both the third eye chakra (for its psychic powers) and the throat chakra (for its communicative powers), it is highly effective when placed or worn over either one of these chakras.
The rule of thumb is simple: if you want to enhance your psychic powers, place it over your third eye, and if you want to enhance your human communications, place it over your throat!
It is highly effective to place blue calcite here during prayer or meditation – this will “open” your mind the most and make it possible for the stone to have the greatest effect.
However, if you don’t need the power as immediately, but want it over time, it is great to wear this stone as a piece of jewellery over either chakra!
If you are fashion-forward, you may enjoy a blue calcite circlet with a stone that rests directly over your third eye, or even a blue calcite brow piercing.
These looks certainly aren’t for everyone! A blue calcite necklace or pendant that rests over your throat chakra is much easier to wear on a daily basis.
Remember, wearing blue calcite anywhere on your person will have positive effects – wearing it on your chakras is just the most intense way to get those effects. If you’re not daring enough for a circlet, wearing a necklace will still help your psychic development – just a little more slowly!
You may want to complement it by placing the stone on your third eye when you pray or meditate, to get the full effects.
Blue calcite’s gentle protective and anti-negativity powers can give you huge benefits when you place it in your home.
It is said to dissuade thieves, almost like a “cloak of invisibility” over your home – and here’s a fun fact, scientists are actually looking into using calcite to create a real cloak of invisibility!
You can do the same thing by placing it in your purse, or in a piece of luggage when you are travelling – the eyes of anyone with ill intent will skip right over your bag.
The Best Combinations to Use with Blue Calcite
As a dual chakra stone, ruling both the third eye and the throat chakra, blue calcite has an excellent place in a chakra stone collection.
Take some time to decide: do you want to mainly use it to enhance communication, with a little psychic power, or mainly use it to enhance psychic power, with a little communication? That will help you decide where it fits into your set.
Blue calcite can be very effectively paired with other stones that are known to enhance psychic powers, such as moonstone, angelite, or celestite, in order to prompt powerful (even transformative) psychic experiences.
When combined with intense meditation, dream work, or other powerful metaphysical players such as plants or magically charged objects, you may find that you are able to do things with your mind that you never could have imagined.
Make sure that you play carefully with these combinations, as they can be so strong that you may find the powers slightly disturbing.
Also, make sure that you’ve got trusted friends around to help you if things get out of hand – the communicative and relationship-building powers of calcite should help you there.
There is one major combination for blue calcite that will bring its power to a whole new level when it comes to dispelling negativity.
Pair your blue calcite with a shiny black stone, like jet, obsidian, or shungite to reflect negativity away from you.
As I’ve mentioned above, calcite has the ability to gently “fan away” negative energies.
On its own, this is great for dissuading ill intent from settling on you, such as the circumstance I described in the last section where thieves will not notice or “see” your possessions.
However, it won’t do much for dispelling negativity when someone already has a problem with you!
Its powers of communication will be helpful in dealing with those problems, but on its own, it can’t have the full effect of getting those people out of your life that I’m sure you want.
That’s where a black stone with a reflective surface will come in: these properties of a stone are known for bringing negativity into the harsh light of day, and then mercilessly banishing it.
Calcite will soften the process somewhat, opening up lines of communication so you don’t go burning bridges where it’s not necessary, but the black stone will ensure that none of these people are going to do you any harm.
Meditation with Blue Calcite
Blue Calcite is mainly a stone often used as a balance and meditation stone. It’s perfect when you want to re-center after being exposed to powerful yang or masculine environments.
If you wish to restore yourself, meditating with Blue Calcite is the best way to go.
Remember that regardless of the stone or crystal that you will use, restoring your balance is very important to your overall well-being.
Blue Calcite is an excellent meditation tool that will attune you to the higher mental plane. Serene blue stones like Blue Calcite will instantly calm your body and relax your mind.
If you want to reach a higher state of consciousness, you can choose other colored stones that will support you in achieving an elevated state.
Blue Calcite usually sparkles and radiates relaxing and soothing vibrations. Its healing properties will soothe your frayed nerves, reduce your anxiety, and eliminate your stress.
It’s a great crystal to have when you are recovering or healing because the energies of this stone will also promote physical healing.
Its energy will work to clear your fears and negative emotions and allow you to rest and relax. Just looking at its beautiful and relaxing blue color will already make you feel so peaceful and calm.
When you meditate with Blue Calcite, you are also visualizing yourself in a state of mind you wish to be.
Before you start to meditate with your Blue Calcite, make sure that your crystal has been cleansed and fully charged.
Decide on the posture you want to be in while you meditate. Decide whether you want to lie down on the bed or on the floor, sit on your favorite chair, or even stand.
Irrespective of the position you chose for yourself, make sure that you are comfortable. If you are not at ease, the meditation will not make any sense.
If this is the first time you are meditating, you can stay focused by using guided meditation. After trying out a couple of options, you will be more comfortable with your sessions.
Most importantly, don’t fall asleep when you start your meditation.
Focus on your mind as you speak with the stone. Tell your Blue Calcite to bring you to the place where you want to be. Visualize the energies of the stone traveling from the stone to your body and vice versa.
Blue Calcite is a suitable stone in bringing relaxation, peace, and calm all over your body. The healing energies of this stone will soothe your frayed nerves and reduce your anxieties.
It’s a great stone to have when you are recuperating because it will get rid of negative feelings and promote rest and relaxation.
Blue Calcite will also work on your throat chakra and allow you to enjoy a peaceful and calm communication.
Blue Calcite will amplify energies in your throat chakra and allow clear communication, especially among differing or opposing points of view.
Meditating with this stone will also promote an optimistic point of view by making you see the perfection of everything around you.
My Final Thoughts on the Power of Blue Calcite
Considering how inexpensive and readily available calcite, including blue calcite, is, it surprises me that it’s not a more popular stone!
Like quartz crystals, calcite appears all over the world – so why don’t more people know about and appreciate its powers?
To an extent, it may be an issue of popularity! Not many people are interested in developing their psychic powers these days.
They may find blue calcite’s powers bizarre, or even scary. But I promise that there is nothing to be afraid of with this stone! It is one of the most gentle stones to still have prominent psychic effects.
Are you interested in improving your psychic powers? Have you stayed away from that path out of fear? If so, blue calcite may be the right stone to pave the way for you.
