In spite of it's modest appearance, cancrinite is a surprisingly powerful crystal. It aligns, balances and "lights up" the Chakras, if is brought into the field of each one in turn, and particularly opens the Sacral (Navel) and Throat Chakras. It can create a shield of golden light and a strong connection with the Earth, offering protection in astral travel. It facilitates meditation, and aids regeneration of connective tissue. It is best used within the field near or directly on the affected area.
