Andradite Garnet is a calcium iron silicate, named after the Portuguese mineralogist d’Andrada. It is well-grounded in Earth’s elemental colors of green or olive, dark yellow, and black. A spiritual stone of higher thinking and self-empowerment, it is also a stone of strength and safety. Like a forest shields an ebony pool from the summer sun, Andradite offers protection and confidence.
Andradite Garnet is dynamic and flexible, stimulating creativity and attracting into your relationships what you most need for your personal development. Most notably, this mineral works to stabilize and enhance the male qualities of strength, stamina and courage.
All Andradite Garnets possess the metaphysical energies common to all garnets: protection, strength, communication and relationship building. The yellow and darker forms counterbalance sentimentality and emotional clinginess, encouraging equal growth in a relationship.
To the inhabitants of Atlantis and the early Egyptians, Azurite was a most potent psychic stone and shrouded in mystery; its secrets known only to the highest priests and priestesses.
It was called the Stone of Heaven by the ancient Chinese who believed it to open celestial gateways, and was revered by Greeks and Romans for its visionary insights and healing powers. For the Mayans, Azurite inspired the mystical self and facilitated the transfer of wisdom and knowledge via thought, while Native Americans used this sacred stone to contact their spiritual Indian guide, feel the presence and understand the message. For modern practitioners, Azurite’s metaphysical properties still mirror its legacy powers, clearing away tension and confusion, and opening the mind to new perspectives. This crystal stimulates the intellect, awakening the development of psychic and intuitive abilities, and brings inner vision into alignment with spiritual guidance. It may be used for the enhancement of dreams, entering a meditative or channeling state, and enables out of body journeys to take place safely. Azurite is beneficial in exploring past or alternate lives, and its ability to clear the Throat Chakra allows for precise verbalization recalled from these experiences
“This very thin book is loaded with lots of powerful information. It is very informative and touches on many topics. If you are a person who wants to change their eating habits, this book will put you on the right track. It also has lots of tasty recipes for you to prepare. You will not be disappointed with this purchase. I brought this book way back in the 90’s and let someone use it and it was never returned. It went out of print and was unable to get another until now. This is a book that should never go out of print.” Customer Review
I have an original copy of this book courtesy of my fathers’ book shelf so I think i’m going to begin studying some of the information within.
New crystal alert! I picked up a few new stones/crystals for the collection. Earlier this week I was grabbed by some Vesuvianite. This stone feels smooth and soft. I always find it interesting how something solid can feel soft. Meditation with Vesuvianite will be going down soon. Right Now I have been focusing in on Dalmatian Jasper. The pattern reminds me of a Cheetah or Leopard never an actual Dalmatian puppy. The energy is interesting and fun. The best way I can describe the Dalmatian energy sensations is: Picture your hand balled into a fist jasper being held within, imagine a infinity symbol around your hand and the energy is flowing-following the pattern of the infinity symbol outline. Now imagine two infinite symbols in a X kind of pattern with energy flowing through the outline of the double figure 8. Also seemed to be directing my attention to the root chakra in an magnetic kind of way. Carnelian I have heard much about and it was mentioned to me last night so I decided I have to pick some up. The Limonite Quartz caught my eye with the mimosa orange stained exterior. Quartz clusters are my go to lately, I just can not seem to get enough of them. More crystals and experiences/sensations with them coming soon.
