Apophyllite may look a lot like clear quartz, but it differs dramatically. It is a softer stone with a hardness of 5 on Mohs hardness scale. It is thought to be a premier stone for meditation as, energetically, it is believed to help one connect to angelic realms & help one to activate their inner vision or psychic abilities. One of my favorite things I have read about this mineral - "it helps one to realize that perfection is a natural state of being."
Calcite makes up almost half of this gorgeous specimen. Energetically it is said to be cleansing, refreshing & revitalizing as it is powerful but gentle. Thought to open up energetic blockages & act like the element of Fire, assisting in the transmitting of energy throughout the body. Also said to be a great mineral of choice for pregnancy.
This particular specimen is from India & is super unique, with a beautiful blend of clear apophyllite with a chunk of golden calcite. It weighs 5oz and measures about 3 x 2.5 x 2 inches.
**This is a softer stone, do not get it wet or hot as it can break
