Throat Chakra Gem
The throat chakra governs communication, expression, inner voice, will power, speaking from truth. It's located on the throat.
I created the Throat Chakra Gem to be a multi-functional, healing piece of art that can be both worn as jewelry in multiple ways and used as a tool for meditation. The Throat Chakra Gem features blue kyanite, turquoise and blue lace agate. The naturally shaped blue kyanite crystal pendant is roughly 1 1/2 inches in size and suspends from 17.5 inches of stainless steel and sterling silver chain. When worn at it's longest, the blue kyanite rests right on the throat chakra itself. A hand forged sterling silver faceted blue lace agate clasp and closure allow the necklace to be worn at 16.5 inches in lenght as well. Turquoise and blue lace agate tube beads are dispersed along the chain. Please note that each Thraot Chakra Gem will vary slightly due to the use of raw and natural stones.
Blue Lace Agate is a wonderful stone to promote communication, allowing us to speak from truth. It provides a calming energy and alleviates nervousness. It brings the right words to help successfully express emotions or thoughts with out anger. It's said to help with thyroid issues. Blue Lace Agate provides inspiration and hope to the wearer.The Throat Chakra governs love, compassion, understanding, forgiveness and hope. It's located in the center of the chest, just above the heart.
Kyanite is very calming stone, an excellent stone for meditation and attunement. It will not retain negative vibrations or energy, therefore never requiring clearing. Blue Kyanite instantly aligns all chakras and balances the yin-yang. Blur Kyanite helps one to speak their truths with honesty. It encourages psychic abilities and communication with spirit guides. Kyanite induces dream recall and can promote healing dreams.
Turquoise was believed by the Native Americans to be the bridge between Earth and the Cosmos, allowing communication with the spirit guides. Turquoise balances and aligns all the chakras. It provides a calming energy and helps to stabilize mood swings. It helps lessen depression and relieves panic attacks. Turquoise promotes self-awareness and positive thoughts.
Below is an overview of the Throat Chakra I've compiled for educational purposes. It's important for our chakras to be in balance to avoid physical and emotional health issues. Knowledge is power, and if we know we are not in alignment, we can eat the right foods, wear certain colors and gemstones, and take appropriate herbs to help bring our chakras back in to alignment.
