Apophyllite may look a lot like 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." When it is pink in color it is thought to be connected more to the heart chakra, helping one to open this area and allow healing to occur.
Pink Apophyllite is the rarest form of Apophyllite found in nature. This one is from India and is made up entirely of little crystal points, with two larger points coming out of both sides in the same spot (hard for me to capture this!) It is incredibly translucent and museum quality specimen. It weighs 1.9 oz and measures about 3 x 2.5 x 1 inches.
**This is a softer stone, do not get it wet or hot as it can break, Keep it safe, handle with care!
