Thulite: What is it and what is it good for?

Thulite is a new stone in my arsenal but what type of stone is it and what is it good for?

I’ve learned that Thulite, also known as Roseline Zoisite, is a mostly manganese type of zoisite. Manganese is what gives it that pretty pink color. It is mostly found in Norway but pockets have been found in New Zealand, Austrian Tyrol, North Carolina and Washington! Yes, in the US!

So what is it good for you ask? Well, in looking through the internet it seems that it is a Heart and 3rd Eye Chakra stone. Fire Mountain Gems website says that it is “known as a stone of expression and passion, giving people the confidence to speak and perform in front of others. A great choice for introverts, this stone can increase self-confidence and make us more outgoing.”

When I sit and hold this stone it gives me the feeling that it actually connects the Heart Chakra to the 3rd Eye Chakra through the Throat Chakra. What does that mean you ask? Well, this stone will help you to speak and see through your heart. This stone seems to calm your heart and body so that you can sense, using your 3rd eye, the heart of others so you can speak to them with a caring frame of mind. This stone would be really good for those who are care givers, in the medical field when working with patients, Reiki Masters who work with families of loved ones who are passing away or helping someone to pass away. I feel that it has a gentle confidence to help those stepping into a new job such as a grade school teacher or a teacher for special needs kids. It’s also a good stone for Psychics since they are essentially using the 3 chakras (along with the Crown Chakra) to give messages. I feel that it calms and relaxes the body enough to help us connect with our spirituality whether you believe in God or any other entity. It does not feel like a high energy stone in the sense that it gets us up and moving or gives us energy to get up and moving. It does help us to have confidence in a very calming sort of way.

One thing to always remember… Always Always go by how the stone makes you feel. If you pick up a stone and you don’t get what you’ve read on the internet then you go by how it makes YOU feel, not what others tell you how it should make you feel.

I have had some people pick up a Rose Quartz and it does absolutely nothing for them but then they pick up a piece of Pink Calcite and they love how it makes them feel. It’s all in how the energy of our bodies connect with the energy of the stone. Maybe that person’s energy has already had enough of the Rose Quartz energy but the Pink Calcite has a different frequency or vibration and it makes them feel good.

All in all, this is a good stone to have around if you need that calm confidence push. My husband bought me this for my birthday plus several smaller stones. I think I’ll have him make some pendants out of this and wear it! It’s quite beautiful.

Thank you for checking in and reading along.

Azurite ~ The Stone of Clear Voice & Thought

Azurite

Azurite

 Isn’t this stone gorgeous!?!  I love it’s deep sea blue.

The picture below shows how it is commonly found.  It’s mix of Malachite, the dark green color, then the swirls of deep sea blue, the Azurite, and then the light blueish turquoise color, the Chrysocolla, is simply beautiful!

Azurite-Malachite-Chrysocolla

What is Azurite?
It’s is a copper based stone often found in copper mines.  We should have tons of that here in Arizona since we have copper mines galore!  Hmmm… I’ll have to look into that.  🙂

So, you may be asking yourself… What can Azurite help me with?
Well let me tell ya… it is great for activating your third eye chakra!  It also helps to develop some psychic abilities such as Clairaudiance, which is hearing spirit, Clairvoyance, which is seeing spirit, and good ol’ Intuition.  It works well with your third eye chakra and your throat chakra because of it’s deep blue color.  Remember, the throat chakra is associated with the color blue and the third eye is associated with the color indigo.  This stone falls in between the two.  This stone will also help develop a closer relationship with the Divine/Universe/God/your High Self because of the communication through the throat chakra.  Anytime you develop a stronger connection with the Divine, your crown chakra is activating so this stone will help with the crown chakra as well.  This stone, overall, will help you develop and keep the higher chakras balanced.

That’s great, but what about healing and just overall wellbeing?  Can it help with my body functioning better?
Yes!  This stone is great for learning and brain function.  It helps to stimulate those synapses in the brain so you can remember things for tests and stuff.  It also keeps you focused and have a clear mind.  For example:  I had to present some information to a room full of people and I had been feeling kind of sluggish and not being able to focus very well.  Needless to say I… was… nervous!  So I had worn my Azurite to work that day.  I also added a Carnelian for courage and Sugalite for love and compassion.  I felt pretty good that morning and my mind was clear and focused!  I was actually quite surprised at how well I felt.  So I got up in front of all these people and gave my presentation without a hitch!  It was Awesome!  Because Azurite is deep blue it resonates with your throat chakra which helps you to speak clearly.  It also works with the brain to have clear thoughts and those synapses were firing in the right spots so I was doing very well.

*DISCLAIMER TIME*
Not everyone has the same experiences with stones so if the stone doesn’t feel right for you it’s best to let it go and move on to another.  Don’t get discouraged… that particular stone just wasn’t meant for you.  Plenty of stones on Mother Earth!  🙂

Ok!  What else does this stone have to offer?
It’s great for helping you meditate because of what it does to your brain.  Remember what I mentioned up above?  If your brain is able to focus you don’t have all these other thoughts fighting for your attention so you are better able to focus on meditating.  This stone also helps you to relax and go deeper into meditation.  It helps you communicate with your guides and retain what you have discussed with them.  Anytime you can focus without those nagging thoughts we all have you can focus on yourself better and allow yourself to do more inner work.
