How do you use blue in crystal healing?

Blue is so important in crystal healing that it is the only color that encompasses not one but two of the major chakra centers. It is a favorite color to work with amongst spiritual healers. Blue raises your vibration to a divine realm and allows you to see beyond worldly filters. It holds the energy of water and the sky. Blue is pure Zen.

Dark and royal blues activate your Third Eye chakra. This is the center of visions, imagination, and intuition.
