Properties: Just the sight of this bright blue variety of brucite can raise the spirits, and it can enhance state of mind by being placed in a room. It clarifies, clears and balances, but unlike many harmonising crystals, brucite is not soothing to work with, although if you persevere, it eventually brings a calm neutrality. Its energy is more like an internal scrubbing with a scouring brush, so you know you’re really clean, but the process can be somewhat uncomfortable. Brucite clears, opens and expands all the chakras, especially when held near each one. The energy is powerful with the upper chakras, especially the Throat and Crown, thereby aiding communication and “speaking one’s truth”, and is subtle when used with the lower chakras. It is useful in alleviating pain, including headaches and migraines, as well as neuralgia and joint pain. It links with the Heart Protector Meridian in Chinese Medicine.
