Blue Kyanite has a stunning colour that will remind you of the crisp open water; formed by high pressure rock collisions it is also quite a typical mineral to be found in mountains, like the Swiss Alps. The name of this aluminium silicate mineral derives from the Greek world for “deep blue” that is “kyanos”. The blue stone is one of the four powerful Kyanite stones that are found in nature, and has the rare ability to require no cleansing. That’s right! You don’t need to bathe this stone in water or cleanse with sage smoke to get rid of the negative energy.
The most common usage for Kyanite is to aid in dream recall and promote healing during dreaming. Dream recall specifically can be a highly restorative practice and allow you to understand the symbolism of your dreams in full. As a blue stone, it is highly attuned to your Throat Chakra and can encourage communication and self-expression, especially in times when you feel unable to speak your truth. The strong crystal energy of Blue Kyanite drives away anger and frustration and can align your chakras with its stimulating energy. During meditation just place it on your body and watch as it replenishes the energy in your body and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Kyanite is a great crystal to keep under the pillow in your bed.
