11 Best Throat Chakra Stones
Crystals can be incredible allies for healing and spiritual development. In this post, we're going to specifically cover how to use crystals that resonate with a balanced and healthy throat chakra, aka. “Throat chakra stones” to heal and balance this chakra energy center..
When all of your chakras are clear, balanced and operating harmoniously, life force energy is able to circulate through you and living a connected, vital and empowered life becomes well within reach.
But when one or more of your chakras becomes blocked, weakened, stagnant, or even overactive, challenges can endure.
What Is The Throat Chakra?
Your throat chakra (Vishaddhu in Sanskrit) is the energetic center at the center of your neck in the area of your throat.
It is well known to be associated with your voice, expression, creativity, emotions, and ability to clearly communicate your truth and connect with others.
Interestingly the throat chakra oversees much more than communication though and also plays a role in your being present and contented in yourself, which can then align you with the magic of divine timing, and synchronicity.
The throat center is also one of the key energy centers that empowers you to connect with and communicate with your unseen team of spiritual guides and angels.
When the throat chakra becomes depleted, imbalanced or blocked you may find it challenging to communicate with others (including the spiritual realms), and you may find it difficult to know and stand in your truth…
But those aren’t the only symptoms of a throat chakra imbalance.
Maybe one of these additional symptoms of a throat chakra imbalance sounds familiar to you?
Common Symptoms of a Throat Chakra Imbalance
- You feel like something is holding you back from speaking your truth.
- You have recurrent throat irritations or, sore throats or neck pain while otherwise being healthy.
- You experience a tendency to complain or focus on things you do not want.
- You feel indecisive about what is most important to you.
- You experience TMJ, dental issues, jaw pain, or stiffness in your jaw and neck.
- You feel deep down that you have an important message to share … but there seems to be something blocking you from sharing it.

- You often to others, and also to yourself.
- You feel a lump in your throat and stuck in your ability to express yourself when challenging emotions arise.
If any (or more) of these symptoms of a throat chakra balance arise for you don’t worry, and know that awareness of an imbalance is the first and a key step towards empowering any imbalance or blockage to be resolved.
Also… Know that you’re not alone!
Many people experience chakra blockages in their life… In fact, it’s far more common than most people realize.
But the good news is there is incredible support from the realms of nature and spirit for you to release blockages and once again allow the flow of light and life force energy to circulate through your chakras and through you.
Crystals are allies that operate on a physical, vibrational and spiritual level and in this post you’re going to learn some of the best stones to support the throat chakra.
What Stone Is Best For The Throat Chakra?
There are many stones that have traditionally been used to balance the throat chakra – and traditionally blue stones, are associated with the throat chakra center (though there are stones that can be supportive that are not blue as well, so this is more a generalization than a role).
Partnering with some of these throat chakra crystals and stones like angelite, lapis lazuli, and aquamarine can help to bring the energies of your throat chakra into balance.
And since positive change begins with energy, balancing the energy of your throat center can create a sort of positive ripple effect of bringing healing, growth and positive transformation on every level, physical, emotional and spiritual.
