Celestite, also known as Celestine, is a mineral that forms blue crystals. Celestite is often associated with divine power and is thought to increase understanding, higher consciousness, as well as mindfulness when used in meditation and prayer.
Its name is derived from Latin word Caelestis, meaning "celestial", which was inspired by the crystals’ well-known shades of sky blue. This mineral can occur in geodes as crystals. Celestite can also occur as fibers in sedimentary rock: river, streams, and ocean beds.
Celestite is best used as a focus point of meditation, prayer, or mindfulness. This stone does very well as a visual piece in private space used for mindfulness practices.
Celestite jewelry would also be good for mindfulness totems: reminders of mindfulness during daily living. Examples of good installations of Celestine include earrings, pendants, and brooches. Rings, as well as bracelets, are discouraged as they are prone to knicks and bumps that could compromise the piece.
Remember to always charge pieces with celestial energy: the sun or the moon. Do NOT leave Celestite in strong or direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, as this will fade the color
