Stalactitic chalcedony vibrates at a very high frequency, and opens both the Crown and Upper Crown Chakras, allowing pure white light to permeate the body. Because of the black root of the crystal, this will fill the body entirely, right through the Root (Base) Chakra and into the legs and feet, grounding spiritual energy. The quality of this energy is light, playful and innocent, and truly heals the spirit.
Stalactitic chalcedony also aids communication with both the Angelic Realms and with nature spirits.
