The Crystal of the Day for Saturday 16 November 2013 is Cuprite. Cuprite is a red to brown mineral with high copper content. Metaphysical lore says that it is helpful for reducing worries about things one has no control over, awareness, teaching, and delivering spiritual messages.
Cuprite is associated with kundalini energy as well as opening the flow of the base (root) chakra, the solar plexus chakra, and balancing the heart and base chakras. As a root chakra stone, it is considered very grounding and stabilising. It is associated in traditional and mystical lore with will power, security, confidence, sexuality, mortality, and masculine energy. Mystically it is used to recall and examine past life experiences. It has been historically said to help heal one’s relationship with their father.
Traditional folklore and crystal healing lore purport that cuprite is helpful for healing problems with the thymus, heart, blood metabolism (especially imbalances), muscle tissue, skeletal system, oxygenation of the blood, stamina, kidneys, menstrual cramps, vertigo, water retention, vitamin absorption, addictions and alcoholism.
