The delicacy of this crystal is mirrored in its energy. Wavelite has a soft, subtle, watery feel, and holding it you can imagine yourself sitting in a calm shallow sea, watching a bed of kelp waving gently in the current, illuminated by sunlight filtring down from the surface. It calms and gently balances on many levels, combing through and clearing as it goes, starting inside and slowly spiralling out through the subtle bodies. It leaves behind a sense of calm contentment. Wavelite connects with the Large Intestine Meridian in Chinese medicine, and depending on placement, may be helpful in the treatment of colds, flu, hay fever, skin complaints and can strengthen and tonify Chi, or life force.
