Throat Chakra Crystals
HEALING CRYSTALS FOR BALANCING YOUR THROAT CHAKRA
About the throat chakra
AKA Vishuddha chakra
The fifth chakra is the throat chakra, also known as the Vishuddha chakra. It is located along the spine at the level of your collarbone, governs the throat and neck area of the body, and is considered one the "main chakras".
The throat chakra is the energy center associated with your ability to communicate and to express – and accept – the truth. It gives a voice to the heart chakra, acting as a bridge between your heart (heart chakra) and your mind (third eye chakra and crown chakra) and allows for authentic self expression. The throat chakra is represented by the color blue and is associated with the element of Ether or Sound.
Throat chakra healing
If your throat chakra is imbalanced, it's important to work to bring it back into alignment, because a clear throat chakra is one that allows for clear, honest communication and authentic expression of self, as it creates an open link between heart and mind.
Working with throat chakra stones will help the proper amount of energy flow through your throat chakra. Throat chakra healing can bring harmony to an under- or overactive throat chakra, and may help with physical ailments associated with the throat.
Many throat chakra stones are reminiscent of the throat chakra with their blue color, a color of peace, clarity, and communication. The vibrations of these healing crystals assist in strengthening self expression, communication skills, and encourage clarity.
To use throat chakra stones, place the crystal on your upper chest, near your throat area, while meditating. Keep your throat chakra stones close throughout the day to bring a continuous flow of energy to this center of personal power and spiritual connection.

The Best Crystals for Each Chakra
When choosing chakra stones to work with you'll want to look for crystals that have the same energetic quality as the chakra when it is balanced. For example, if you wanted to work with crystal healing for your first chakra or Root Chakra, you would look for stones that are known to remove negative energy and possess grounding properties.
Each of the seven chakras also has a corresponding color. So you might start with finding a chakra stone that also has this hue. For example, many Crown Chakra crystals are clear or white as this chakra is represented by the color white.
How to Use Crystals for Chakra Healing
Chakra healing stones work by resonating with the energy of specific chakras, helping to restore balance and flow. Each chakra is associated with a specific color and energy frequency, and certain stones are believed to correspond with each chakra.
For example, amethyst is associated with the crown chakra, while citrine is linked to the solar plexus chakra. By placing these stones on or near the corresponding chakra during meditation or energy healing sessions, they can help to clear blockages and restore balance.
