Blue halite is a type of crystal that is often used in jewelry. It is found in many different shades of blue, from light sky blue to deep navy. Blue halite is said to have calming and grounding properties. It is also believed to promote communication and understanding.
The name “halite” comes from the Greek word for “salt.” Blue halite crystals are found in evaporite deposits around the world. They form when saltwater evaporates, leaving behind mineral deposits. Blue halite is usually found in conjunction with other minerals, such as calcite and gypsum. These deposits are often mined for use in saltlicks and salt mines.
Blue halite crystals are also sometimes cut and polished for use in jewelry.
