Properties: Clinoclase calms, balances and grounds, and leaves the body surrounded by a protective shield of cool, dark blue flame. It has a strong, somewhat feminine energy, and enters into a process with you, which has been described as “gentle, yet determined”, when held or used in meditation. It clears and aligns the Chakras, often creating a sense of waves or shuddering in the body, and draws in and centres the energetic field, bringing it firmly into the tan t’ien or Sacral Chakra area, helping us to be fully present in our body. When the process is complete, it reaches a neutral state, almost as if it is no longer being held.
