The fifth of the original primary Chakras, in the Vedic tradition is the Throat, known in Sanskrit as Vishuddha: most common meaning is taken to be “pure” or “purification.” Associated with ether, communication, and creativity.
Generally the throat chakra is represented by the colors blue or turquoise. According to chakras.info “The auric color of Throat chakra energy can also be seen as a smoky purple or turquoise.” and is located between the collar bone and the voice box.
As might be supposed from its position, it’s related to sound and is our center for communication. As you can imagine blockages here can prevent our speaking out, speaking our truth, being honest, and generally expressing ourselves. A lot of humans have Throat chakra imbalances resulting in difficulty speaking clearly, speaking in public, feelings of insecurity but also things like gossiping and “verbal diahorrea.”
Clearing and balancing the Throat chakra can be vital. Often viewed as a ‘bottleneck’ between the heart and the uppermost chakras, it’s an important element when trying to balance the entire energetic system and align all chakras.
There’s a longish list of stones that can help with the throat, anything blue or turquoise colored will likely be supportive. Here are a few I thought most relevant:
