'Bingham Blue' fluorite is the 'blue sky' mineral. When feeling confused, depressed, or overwhelmed, it clears away the clouds and facilitates inner expansion, bringing clarity, lightness, a fresh outlook, and optimism. It can clear the Throat Chakra,whether the issues are physical (including neck problems), emotional or spiritual, as well as supporting the Heart both emotionally and physically.
The focus of its energy is around the head, throat and heart, but there is no sense of ungroundedness when using it. That, combined with 'lightness', as if the physical body has no weight, makes it a superb mineral for Ascension and transformational work.
