The Crystal of the Day for Friday 25 October 2013 is Wavellite. Wavellite is a phosphate mineral, named after William Wavell, the English doctor who discovered it. The green colour of Wavellite is produced by the mineral vanadium, which is an aid in sharpening the mental process.

Wavellite is a stone for the satisfaction of curiosity. It enhances psychic abilities in an unusual way–it answers inner questions with meaningful synchronicities. If one wishes to know something not within one’s ordinary realm of awareness, one can meditate with a Wavellite, and then look into the events of the coming days for a synchronistic answer. Whilst there are many stones that help in the decision making process, Wavellite is the only one that works at your root level.

Wavellite shows a much larger aspect concerning the decision to be made. It shows how this decision fits into who you really are down deep, not just your surface image. Important decisions that may change your life must fit who you really are, not just the circumstances of the day.

Wavellite doesn’t give you just one answer, one path. It will help to reveal several alternate paths. For any deep question, there are several ways to achieve the same goal. Wavellite assists us in bringing these paths out of our inner knowledge.

The Crystal of the Day for Thursday 17 October 2013

The Crystal of the Day for Thursday 17 October 2013 is Larimar. Larimar is one of the cardinal Water element stones, yet is born of Fire in its volcanic origins. One of the few crystals to balance the polarities of these energies, Larimar cools tempers and calms fears, relieves stress and nurtures the physical and emotional bodies. It is powerful in meditation and in connecting to the Divine Feminine, and is particularly helpful in releasing emotional bonds, patterns or principles that no longer serve the highest good. A stone of clear communication, it provides the strength and courage needed to speak openly from the heart.

A rare blue variety of Pectolite, Larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. It occurs as needle-like crystals, grown together in a solid mass and forms in cavities within basaltic lava. The copper substitution in Pectolite instead of calcium produces beautiful translucent shades of soft blues, white and turquoise marked with streaks and patterns of white, and may contain red or brown areas of oxidation or Hematite inclusions. The more intense the blue and contrast within the stone, the rarer and higher its value. Note: blue is photosensitive and may fade over time if exposed to too much light or heat.

Larimar is also known as the Dolphin Stone, Blue Pectolite, Atlantis Stone, and Stefilia’s Stone. Originally discovered in 1916, it was named by the Dominican who re-discovered it in 1974, taking the first letters of his daughter’s name, Larissa, and the Spanish word for the sea, mar, to create Larimar.

Use Larimar to overcome fear of doctors, hospitals, injections or surgery. It promotes clear and confident communication with health personnel.

Larimar is a wonderful stone for mothers, during and after pregnancy. It helps in alleviating post-partum depression, and relaxes the stress associated with new parenthood.

As a soothing Water element stone, Larimar cools hot tempers and guides excessive passion into peace. It may be used to diminish the frequency and intensity of hot flashes, and when one’s kundalini energies have become uncomfortably active.

As a crystal of the Throat Chakra, using Larimar in a pendant or laying-on-of-stones treatment will unleash the voice of one’s deepest wisdom. Singers may also find Larimar a wonderful talisman for enhancing and protecting the voice.

Larimar is an excellent stone for finding a soulmate. It facilitates the healing of unresolved issues or fears, trauma to the heart, or past-life relationships.

Larimar is particularly helpful for cartilage and throat conditions, and dissolves blockages of the head, neck and chest. It may also be laid on constricted joints or arteries.

As a reflexology tool, Larimar opens the acupressure/acupuncture meridians at the feet allowing for the recognition of which painful spots lead to which areas of the body in order to remove and clear the disease.

Larimar is used to enhance alternative treatments, particularly those involving heat, light, and water. It is an antidote to emotional extremes and helps ameliorate bipolar disorders.

Larimar relieves high blood pressure and stress-related illnesses, and may alleviate excessive Fire element energy such as infection, fever and inflammation. It may also be used to treat skin disorders aggravated by stress, such as hives, rashes, eczema and psoriasis.

Larimar is a stone of tremendous benefit to the Throat Chakra, opening the way for clear communication and the ability to speak openly from the heart.

The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body, in essence, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked, or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions, bringing our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release.

The Crystal of the Day for Tuesday 8 October 2013

The Crystal of the Day for Tuesday 8 October 2013 is Moldavite. Moldavite is a type of tektite, which are thought to have been created by various meteors landing on Earth. Moldavite comes in shades of green, from olive to deep forest. There are a rare amount of light, intensely Emerald green Moldavites that are referred to as “Poison” green. Moldavite can have a sharp, pointy appearance or a more pitted yet smooth look.

Moldavite is believed to have been used for thousands of years as a sacred stone. The excavation of the famous Venus of Willendorf found numerous items made from Moldavite, such as amulets, talismans and knife blades. This dates back approximately 25 thousand years ago. In Czechoslovakian history, Moldavite was believed to bring blessings and harmony to marital relationships and were given as a traditional betrothal gift. The green alien stone has even been linked to Arthurian lore and the Holy Grail, with one writing describing the Holy Grail not as a cup, but as a stone, while others hold that the Grail is a cup carved from a crystal emerald that fell from the sky. Today, Moldavite is used in carvings, religious artifacts and as various pieces of jewelry.

Many people have credited their Moldavite stones as being the catalyst for dramatic and rapid life changes. Some even warn against purchasing this stone unless you are willing, able and ready to let go of the old and embrace the new. Transformation, communication and healing all seem to surround this stone in folklore, history and personal experiences, making it a truly unique and powerful stone to use for spiritual and healing purposes.

**Beware of fake Moldavite**
Ask the seller where the stone is from. Moldavite is a tektite found only in Europe’s Moldau River Valley, located in what is today the Czech Republic. If the seller claims the stone was mined anywhere but this region, it is almost definitively a fake. There ARE dark grey to black “Moldavite”, however, there are some sellers from China on eBay selling “Black diamond Moldavite” which is fake. A few simple tests can tell you if you have the right one:

1. If it has a blue cast to it, it may very likely be bottle glass. Also, large pieces of moldavite are extremely rare so be aware of those & do your research.

2. Examine the moldavite with an eye toward colour and texture. Moldavites vary in colour from a dusty green to a deep olive hue, but the colours tend to be muted and dusky. While moldavites can be both smooth and spiky, no moldavites are as smooth and pristine as cut glass. If the moldavite you are examining is smooth, shiny and bright-green in color, you are most likely looking at a fake moldavite that was produced by melting green glass bottles into a new shape.

3. Pay attention to the source of your moldavite stone. Whilst vendors for moldavite are located around the world, moldavite itself is mined only in Eastern Europe, most commonly in the Czech Republic. The comet that is believed to have crashed into Earth, creating moldavite deposits upon impact, landed only once in what was formerly southern Bohemia. Minor deposits have been found in isolated pockets of Sweden, Austria and Germany, but comparatively little moldavite is mined in these regions. Therefore if the seller claims his moldavite was mined anywhere other than the Czech Republic, the stone is most likely a fake.

4. Be aware that the larger the moldavite, the higher the price. The largest moldavite ever mined weighed approximately 260 grams, just under half of a pound. Consequently, many retailers of fake Moldavite will try to scam potential customers with “inside deals” on even larger and more fabulous moldavites. In reality, stones weighing more than 30 grams are extremely unusual (especially if priced under £682 / $1,000), so moldavites weighing more than that should be regarded with skepticism.

5. Try to purchase moldavite in person from a vendor instead of anonymously online, in order to actually touch the stone. Many moldavite enthusiasts, such as the proprietor of Moldavite for Me, and new-age healers claim that the stone’s outer-space origins imbued it with unique energies and vibes. It is postulated that when you touch the moldavite your hands will tingle and you may experience dizziness and lightness in the head. While the touch test is not a guaranteed method of authentication, it is something to bear in mind when shopping for moldavite stones.
