The throat chakra (5th – Vishuddha) is the centre for communication and self-expression. Found at the base of the neck with a light blue color, it allows energy from the six other main chakras to be expressed. Known as the ‘soul’s gate,’ the throat chakra is the link between the heart and head. When the throat chakra is unbalanced, communication becomes more difficult. It's harder to speak honestly and be true to your feelings, which can lead to frustration. One of the best ways to balance an underactive or overactive throat chakra is by using crystals.
Blue Agate is a beautiful light blue stone that harnesses the power of the throat chakra. It neutralizes spoken anger, counteracts feelings caused by being judged and encourages expression of thoughts and feelings. Like many stones for the throat chakra, Blue Agate has a soft soothing energy. It's often said to be the most powerful blue stone for balancing, activating and healing the Vishuddha chakra. Spiritually, Blue Agate is closely linked to the angelic energies. This allows an outflow of positivity and the expression of the highest spiritual truths.
