Many are familiar with crystals and minerals, but even though calcite is quite useful in the healing properties it offers and even though it’s a common healing stone, it’s not as commonly used in spiritual practices. In this article we’ll talk about blue calcite and its spiritual and physical healing benefits.
What is Blue Calcite?
Blue Calcite is a colored variety of carbonate mineral that can be found in all parts of the world, but which is exported mainly from Madagascar. This particular healing stone has been revered useful throughout history for its gentle, yet effective properties. In ancient Egypt, blue calcite was believed to represent the energy of life and the life source, and in India it was considered a sacred communication stone that enhances one’s telepathic abilities. In modern day, blue calcite is still considered a powerful healing crystal and its uses are mainly associated with improving communication and strengthening intuition. Most commonly known to be a calm and soothing stone that instills peace and tranquility, its serene energies relieve anxiety and stress while addressing problems regarding the nervous system. Blue calcite holds the power to protect the aura as well as to absorb negative energy. It balances emotions and clears the mind, allowing for clear communication between your thoughts and feelings. This powerful healing stone will help anyone who suffers from anxiety or depression as it transmutes negative energy into positive energy. Blue calcite can also help to develop psychic abilities as well as telepathic skills. Meditate or pray with this stone against your forehead or throat, or keep it in your home.
How Blue Calcite Affects us
In order to properly benefit from a crystal, we must first understand what areas of our physical and emotional being they relate to best, as well as how they affect us. Each healing crystal has its correlations to the zodiac, the planets, and their chakras, each affecting us in different ways, depending on their and our characteristics. Listed below are the astrological, physical, and spiritual aspects of blue calcite.
Cancers (represented by the crab) are known to have tough exteriors while being soft on the inside. Their sensitive and emotional nature means they care a lot about the people they love and they don’t hesitate to help where they can. However, because of this, they can sometimes become overwhelmed by certain situations in their environment and are easily drained of energy. Blue calcite not only soothes the overactive mind of a Cancer, it also rejuvenates their energy and dispels negativity. Blue calcite brings balance and creativity into the home and self-care practices. Keep this stone in your meditation room to allow cleansing energies into your auric field.

Its astrological correspondences as well its healing energies are embedded into blue calcite healing crystals.
Vibration Number: 8
In numerology, each number or combination of numbers corresponds to a particular energetic vibration. Every crystal and healing stone has a vibrational frequency that is unique to its structure, shape, size, and color. This number determines the level at which the stone itself vibrates energetically and therefore how it responds to different areas of our being. Blue Calcite vibrates at level 8, which is considered the highest feminine number. Numerologically, 8 is extroverted and karmic, representing domination, achievement, and equality. In relation to blue calcite, the number 8 promotes resilience and overcoming obstacles. This stone is best for people with the life path number 8, but also benefits anyone seeking clarity and understanding.
The throat chakra energy center controls our voice, communication, and everything pertaining to the way we express ourselves. When the throat chakra is closed or blocked, it can become difficult to put our thoughts into words which creates discord and misunderstandings. Blue calcite calms the mind and opens the throat chakra, allowing for clear and healthy communication. It bridges the gap between your mind and your throat, helping you to say what you mean and what you say. Meditate with this stone to promote communication, clarity of the mind, and a healthy balance of emotions.
Blue Calcite Healing Properties for Specific Intentions
While blue calcite offers a range of healing purposes, let’s look into some of its specific metaphysical properties and how we can utilize them to our advantage. Listed below are a few examples of the ways in which we can incorporate blue calcite into our spiritual practices.
For Mental Health
One of the most special aspects of Blue Calcite is its amazing ability to heal the mind. Most mental health disorders are caused by an imbalance in the brain. Whether chemical or emotional, an imbalance will cause intense feelings of distress that are often the root of depression, anxiety, or hysteria. Blue calcite will level out the neurological communications of the mind while its stabilizing properties helps to balance emotions and relax the mental state. It can relieve feelings of depression and anxiety by assisting you to better process your thoughts and feelings. Every problem has a solution if you only know where to look, and blue calcite is the best choice when it comes to mental stability and a healthy mind. Meditate with this stone or keep it near to better harness its healing energies.
For Physical Health
Aside from its spiritual healing abilities, blue calcite also offers healing in many aspects of the physical body. Its physical healing properties extend from the skeletal system to the organs. Blue calcite removes calcification in the bones, strengthening the joints and relieving arthritis pain while promoting the assimilation of calcium. In regards to the organs, this healing stone promotes healthy function of the kidneys, spleen, pancreas and intestines. It relieves skin irritation and acne, while helping to repair tissue damage and allowing for healthy blood flow which prevents blood clots and heart attacks.
For Healthy Relationships
One of the most common causes of discord and discontentment in relationships is miscommunication or a lack of communication entirely. Not only does blue calcite help in matters of communication, but it also brings peace and harmony into the home. Because of its properties that promote creativity and intuition, blue calcite will also help you to look into your heart and listen with your intuition, assisting you to make the best possible decision in any matter. Wear this stone as jewelry to hold its energies close or press it against your forehead or throat chakra during meditation to absorb its gentle and loving energy.
Whatever line of work you’re in, you most likely often run into complications on a daily basis. Blue calcite’s ability to clear the mind will keep you focused and concentrated on your tasks. While it promotes creativity and intuition, this healing stone will also help with the assimilation of new ideas and allow you to expand your view, bringing fresh insight into your work. Keep blue calcite in the workspace to supercharge productivity and ensure success.
Although blue calcite is not commonly known as a protective stone, its composition helps to absorb negative energy and protect the auric field from psychic attacks. If your goal in any spiritual practice is to purify and keep positive energy flowing (which it most likely is), then blue calcite will do all of the above. Incorporate this healing stone into your prayer or meditative practices to help clear out negativity and to attract protection. It can also be included in your spell candles, jars, pouches, etc. and makes a beautiful addition to any altar.
Cleansing and Charging your Blue Calcite
Healing crystals are known to lend energy to the seeker as well as absorb the leftover energy therefrom so it’s important to cleanse your crystals often. While certain healing stones have the ability to cleanse and charge themselves, it’s still vitally important to cleanse your crystals of any stagnant or negative energy left behind, especially after it’s been touched or used in healing practices. The proper ways to cleanse and charge a crystal depend on the composition of the stone itself as certain minerals are sensitive to sunlight and water. Because blue calcite is delicate, it would not be recommended to cleanse it with water as it may dissolve over time. You may, however, leave it in the sun for a little while; this will also charge the stone with the sun’s natural light energy. Be careful not to leave it out for too long though, as calcite will fade and become brittle in sunlight. For cleansing this particular healing stone, you can pass it through sage smoke or any smudge smoke of your preference. Another effective way to cleanse and charge blue calcite crystal is by pairing it with selenite or setting it on a selenite plate. After cleansing and charging your healing crystal, it’s also important to bond with it. Although blue calcite is a delicate stone, you can still wear it as jewelry, just remember to handle it with care. Another way to bond with your crystal is by simply touching it or holding it in your hand. You can even whisper your intentions into the stone!
Blue Calcite Crystal Pairings
Oftentimes, healing crystals are paired to amplify their healing properties. For cleansing and boosting energy, a stone can be paired with light colored crystals such as clear quartz or selenite. For grounding and protection energies, pair any crystal with a dark crystal such as black tourmaline or obsidian. To enhance cleansing, purification, and protective properties, pair a light crystal with a dark crystal. However, it’s important to exercise caution when pairing two crystals of the same color as it may cause high or low intensity of energy; two dark crystals can lower vibration to a depressing level, whereas two light crystals can heighten energy and cause anxiety. Listed below are the best stones to pair with Blue Calcite.
Blue Calcite and Aquamarine
Aquamarine stone is known for its powerful energies that heal the mind and enhance communication, in much the same way as blue calcite does. Pairing these stones will supercharge communication and fully open the throat chakra, which is not only good for human communications, but is also great for communicating with spirit guides. Keep them together to get the most from this magical combination.
Blue Calcite and Amethyst
Amethyst’s ability to expand the higher mind and enhance creativity makes it an excellent partner for virtually any healing stone, but pairing it with blue calcite has special benefits of its own. Combining these two healing crystals will open the throat chakra as well as the third eye chakra, promoting intuition and a deeper connection to the divine. This pair will allow you to see with your third eye and make decisions based on instinct instead of relying solely on rationality. Keep them together in a jewelry set or in your meditation room to enhance psychic abilities.
Blue Calcite and Moldavite
Moldavite has lately become a quite popular stone among new age practitioners, not only for its beauty, but also for its especially powerful healing properties. It is known for its intense powers of protection, love healing, and transformation, but it should not be taken lightly. Moldavite is a stone that will change your entire life for the better, sometimes in ways we are not prepared for. It’s also a very rare healing stone and expensive when it’s found, but if you do manage to find one it makes a nice partner for blue calcite. Together, this pair will assist anyone who is working with intentions of protection and transformation.
Blue Calcite and Selenite
Selenite, much like clear quartz, is one of the most popular healing crystals. It has the ability to cleanse and charge energy within itself as well as the energy surrounding it. It is an augmentative stone, which means it will enhance the healing properties of any stone it’s paired with. For a simple, yet powerful partner to blue calcite, selenite is a great choice. This pair will enhance all the healing properties of blue calcite and selenite combined. Pair them on your altar or in your crystal collection.
Blue Calcite and Black Tourmaline
Black tourmaline is a protective stone which is also used for grounding energy. It is known to absorb and deflect negative energies, while keeping the wearer emotionally and psychically balanced. When paired with blue calcite, black tourmaline will stabilize its healing energies and instill protection into this crystal combination. Keep them together in the home or wear them in a jewelry set.
