Dumortierite aka Blue Quartz properties:
We have some of the most beautiful, deep blue, authentic Blue Quartz that I have ever seen. This is not the dyed synthetic quartz that is often touted to be true blue quartz, which are transparent. This is quartz with Dumortierite mineral inclusions giving it this deep blue color that rivals lapis lazuli. It is also marketed as blue denim stone and blue moon quartz.
It was used by the Lemurian's to align the subtle bodies, open the heart and throat chakras and increase longevity. Also encourages the beholder to express his spiritual qualities more easily.
Reputed to boost the immune system and extinguish free radicals. Enhances assimilation of gold, iodine, iron, oxygen and B vitamins.
Working with Blue Quartz helps you release your anxiety and resistance to aging. Once the fear is gone, you stop attracting negativity associated with aging and you strengthen your life force in the physical. To work with Blue Quartz, hold the stone between your thumb and index finger for 15 minutes when you first wake up, focusing on breathing in and out through your heart and throat chakras alternatively. Then put the stone down and touch the forefinger of the hand that held it to your forehead to stimulate awakening of your third eye. Keep your Blue Quartz energized by placing it in a window sill where it can receive the light from the sun rising in the morning.
