Blue Lace Agate is a variety of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It is usually banded in layers of predominantly light blue, striped with brighter blues, whites, and even brown threads of color. Commonly, Blue Lace Agate is used to aid in matters of communication, and therefore associated with the 5th chakra - governing the throat. It is especially beneficial to those who struggle to be heard and to articulate themselves. The stone aims to help the user to maintain clarity and remain unwavering towards goals and ideas.
Practitioners of Light Language can use this crystal to help themselves develop clear, focused, and articulate communication. In using the stone, practitioners can be assisted with connecting with higher guidance so they can communicate without anger, fear, and misunderstanding, but rather with purpose and without fear of judgement or self-doubt.
For those who possess the crystal, it can be used by holding the crystal in one hand and waving it in clockwise revolutions, at about arms-length and at the height of the throat. The practitioner can focus their thoughts on the ideas which they wish to communicate with diplomacy, clarity, and purpose. Where practitioners are treating/assisting clients, they can help the client by asking them to focus on what they wish to be understood on: thoughts, concepts, ideas for either work, projects, meetings, or everyday clarity with the people they interact with. It is a highly beneficial stone for people who must communicate more than usual: teachers, lectures, presenters, etc....
As Blue Lace Agate is highly useful in communication, it is also particularly useful to children and teenagers who are susceptible to fear of judgement and negative inner dialogues. The crystal's practitioner can guide children they are working with in expressing themselves in a clear and concise manner. Teenagers can particularly be guided into identifying negative speech patterns and habits and guided into shifting inner dialogue into being positive and uplifting. It is equally beneficial to younger children who struggle with overactive imaginations and therefore unable to discern reality from fiction!
When working with Blue Lace Agate, it is important to periodically cleanse the crystal to reset its calming and soothing vibration. Cleansing the crystal can be as simple as washing the crystal in a mix of sea or rock salt water. Alternatively, users can cleanse by visualization. Users can imagine a bright light surrounding the crystal and dissolving the negative energy and vibrations.
Blue Lace Agate is a great crystal to work with. It promotes one's inner truth, knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.
