Healing Properties of Blue Calcite
Spiritual: Blue Calcite brings confidence and integrity to our spiritual practices. It is a wonderful stone for strengthening affirmations, especially when they are spoken aloud. Blue Calcite enhances clairvoyance, telepathy, and intuition. It is also particularly well suited for enhancing the visual aspect of internal spiritual journeys. It is attuned to the Throat (5th) and Third Eye (6th) Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Cancer. It is connected to elements of Wind and Fire and vibrates to the number 8.
Emotional: Blue Calcite has a very calming effect on the emotional body and helps us to see reality clearly. With clear sight, we can accept what is, and also have more opportunities to create positive and lasting change. Blue Calcite encourages us to be happy and at peace, knowing that we will choose actions that will serve the Highest Good. Blue Calcite is particularly helpful for anyone who tends towards a fatalistic outlook or victim mentality. It shakes us up out of our emotional lethargy and encourages us to be the masters of our own fate.
Mental: Blue Calcite is a fabulous stone for anyone who is actively “re-wiring” their brain. It helps us to stop obsessive or negative thinking and instead focus on those thoughts which bring us peace and prosperity. Blue Calcite is also a wonderful muse for inspiring creativity and thinking “outside of the box.” It helps us to take our creative images and put them into words, making this a particularly good stone for writers or abstract artists.
Physical: Blue Calcite is said be a healing and strengthening stone for the lungs. It is often used by metaphysical healers to treat headaches and for simple eye conditions such as cataracts.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
Ethically Sourced Blue Calcite Heart
I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.
In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.
In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar.

Safe Handing of Blue Calcite
Cleaning Healing Crystals
There are many ways to cleanse, charge, and set intentions with crystals.
Before cleaning your healing crystals, always consider the geology of each stone. Some stones are sensitive to water and/or sunlight. Best Practice is to keep your stones out of direct sunlight when you’re not working with them, simply because the sunlight will fade the crystal’s color over time. This is especially true for transparent and translucent gems. Remember crystals grow underground where it’s nice and dark! Stones that are formed in dry desert conditions may be harmed by immersion in water. This is especially true for fragile and porous stones.
One of the easiest and most effective way to energetically clean crystals is to smudge them with smoke from plants like sage, juniper, cedar, lavender, tobacco, etc. Each plant has its own unique smell and spiritual property. Moonrise Crystals smudges with white mountain sage (for cleansing) and sweet grass (for kindness) before the crystals are sent to their forever home with you.
Other common ways to energetically clean healing crystals are to set stones near a piece of Carnelian, Citrine, Kyanite, Selenite or other stones that are energy purifiers. Be sure to pamper the purifying stones regularly so that they can continue to do their job properly. Citrine and Kyanite are self-cleansers that don’t “need” extra care. But they will love getting extra attention from you!
If a stone is doing a lot of heavy energetic work, one of the best ways to restore its energy reserves is to allow it to rest on the earth, next to a plant. A potted plant inside the house works just fine. Let the crystal rest overnight or longer, until its energy feels bright and sparkly again.
Charging and Setting Intentions with Healing Crystals
There is no right/wrong way to charge and set intentions. But here’s a few ways that it’s done at Moonrise Crystals.
Cleanse the crystals and yourself. It is good to take the time to physically clean stones before doing spiritual work. It sets a tone of purity, respect, and reverence. Hold the crystals or be near them. Sing or talk to the stones. Tell them about yourself and what you are working on. Ask them for their help. You don’t need to use any special words, simply speak from the heart. Treat the crystals like your best friends and closest allies. They want to help you.
If you feel shy or awkward, you can also write your message on a piece of paper and set the stones on top of it. Music, including singing bowls, can also be used. The most important thing is simply to be present with the stones and focused on setting the intention.
This can be done at any time, day or night. However, nighttime is often a particularly good time for setting intentions. Take the crystals outside, if possible. You can talk to your crystals outside, or you may just want to sit near them and meditate or pray.
- During the Full Moon, energy is amplified. It is also a wonderful time to celebrate in the bright light when your intentions are already going well and you want to keep the trend going.
- The New Moon is a time for new beginnings. The darkness is like planting a seed underground. It will grow up into the Light.
- Eclipses, meteorite showers, and other astronomical events will add their own unique energy.
- Knowing where the moon is astrologically, can also add a fun element to intention setting. The moon changes signs every 2-3 days.
