It is a stone for the throat chakra allowing the energy to flow freely and helping you to speak your highest truth. It is also very clearing for the mind and carries a calming and relaxing vibe. This calming energy helps to sharpen the intellect assisting in obtaining and processing new information. It also brings spiritual attunement and advancement by increasing your levels of awareness.
