Dumortierite is a Dispeller Strengthener crystal. Dispeller Crystals are used to rid you of an undesirable part of your life. Sometimes in your life you need to rid yourself of things you have but no longer want. You want to get rid of pains, sickness, worry, and a host of unpleasant feelings. For these needs, the Dispeller talismans that form in the orthorhombic system are needed. These “diamond shape” internal crystal arrangements are similar to the cubic system, but have one elongated axis. Dumortierite dispells fear and anger.
Absorber Energizers, like Dumortierite, are mostly opaque and function more like batteries. They can serve to augment your energy during periods when you are not at your peak.
When it is its normal Blue color, this stone is one of the natural birthstones of those born while the world awaits the vernal equinox and spring (February 19–March 19).
With its Blue color, Dumortierite can be used as healing stones for the Throat Chakra. The throat chakra is the voice of the body. It is a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakra to be expressed. If it is out of balance or blocked it can affect the health of the other chakras.
When it is in balance we can express what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, we can bring our personal truth out into the world.
When the throat chakra is in balance we have a easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release.
Dumortierite brings you Water Energy. Water energy is traditionally associated with the North area of a home or room. It is associated with the Career and Life Path area. Its flowing energy will assure a balance of energy as your life unfolds and flows. To keep your life moving forward towards your goals use the water elements energy. (In some modern feng shui approaches Blue is associated with Earth Energy, see Feng Shui explanation page.)
As a meditation aid, Dumortierite is used in meditations that are concerned with affairs of the heart. If you are seeking understanding and answers about loved ones and their intentions, use an Chrysocolla in your quest for answers. It will brighten your outlook.
Dumortierite is a stone of self confidence that will help you establish yourself and your needs. Some practicioners note that it will stimulate the brain and can amplify many psychic gifts.
