The third eye chakra (also known as the brow, sixth, or Anja chakra) resides one finger length above the nose, resting between and around the eyebrows. This is a commanding chakra, housing one’s intuition and wisdom. A healthy third eye lets one see the world as a united whole, allowing them to understand different viewpoints and act in accordance with their deeper spiritual knowledge. If it becomes imbalanced, one might feel and act pessimistic, unfocused, or irrational. Stones that resonate with the third eye typically connect with the spiritual depth and insight it possesses.
Since stones resonate differently for different individuals, we recommend working with your personal chakras to discover what tools work best for you. If you are looking for a place to start, see below for the stones we recommend for the third eye chakra.
Stones for Third Eye
Iolite – This shaman stone is believed to facilitate insight and intuition, especially when all other chakras are balanced. It is great for opening the third eye chakra.
Amazonite – Amazonite helps filter out EMF energy passing through its carrier, allowing it to unblock and enhance intuition.
Ametrine – A combined stone made of amethyst and citrine, ametrine opens the third eye and assists with divination.
Azurite – This blue crystal cleanses and stimulates this chakra, moving it towards spiritual attunement, psychic enhancement, and intuitive development.
Celestite – Celestite has been called the “Stone of Heaven”. It allows access to the universal connection between the divine and all things. Placing it on the third eye during meditation can open it to this level of communication.
Lapis Lazuli – A stone of self-mastery, lapis lazuli can enhance dream work and psychic abilities.
Lepidolite – This crystal is excellent for working with the higher chakras. In addition to activating the third eye, lepidolite opens the heart and crown chakras.
