You might be surprised to learn that this unique crystal, also known as blue goldstone or “star stone,” is not a natural stone, but rather a man-made creation. As a result, you may be wondering if blue Sandstone has any healing properties or if it can even be considered a healing crystal at all. (The answer is, of course, yes.) To this day, the origins of sandstone and blue sandstone are unknown. Some crystal experts believe it can be traced back to the Miottis of Venice in the 17th century. They were a glassmaking family who allegedly invented the technique that resulted in the creation of what we now call sandstone. Blue sandstone, also known as the stone of ambition, is the ideal companion for those who lack the drive or self-confidence to ask for what they want. As a true throat chakra stone, its vibration instills positive energy, lifts your mood, and uplifts your spirit, allowing you to feel comfortable enough in your own skin to speak and live your truth. Blue sandstone, like Tiger’s Eye and Aventurine, can provide you with the willpower, wisdom, and courage to accept your true self, making it an excellent companion on your self-discovery journey. This beautiful glass bead is known as the “wishing stone” in some cultures because many people believe it can attract the things you want and bring new opportunities into your life.

Then, on another piece of paper, write down everything you want to attract. Fold it, place your blue sandstone and any other crystals you want on top, and leave it overnight.
