Russian ASTROPHYLLITE Crystal Skull w/ 2-Tone Colored FLASHES!
This is an unusual Astrophyllite crystal skull! It's an unusual variety from the Kola peninsula in Russia. It has both blue and light bronze colored streaks/flashes that appear here and there throughout from different angles! Best seen in bright light. "Astrophyllite" comes from the Greek words for star ("astron") and leaf ("phyllon"). You can see why it's named after these two words! Flashes of light, like the stars in the night sky, are visible in a complex structure of long, slender, shapes that almost look like the veins in a leaf! The stone itself has a black coloring with subtle DARK red Eudialyte inclusions mixed in all over. I love this stone!
Technically, Astrophyllite is the name for a type of metamorphic rock rather than a specific mineral. What is the difference between a "rock" and a "mineral"? Think of a mineral like a piece of plywood, and a rock like a finished bookcase! A rock combines and/or contains different minerals which create a new material, while a mineral can be part of various rocks or found by itself. Most commonly, Astrophyllite combines a base of Anthophyllite and Gedrite with traces of other minerals that determine what colors (or color of flash) may be present. For example, specimens from other deposits (such as those found in Norway) have a bronze colored flash instead of blue.
There are some tiny organic spots here and there which come from inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was polished. They can resemble small indents, pinpricks, or thin lines. ALL inclusions present come from 100% natural formations in the stone. MUCH nicer in person than the photos can show! Check out how it works with subtle energies below!
It weighs about 3.6oz and measures about 51mm (2" inches) long X 34mm (1 5/16" inches) tall. Code18190
Astrophyllite is purported to promote self-esteem and a feeling of well-being, whatever one has in life. Assists in releasing unhealthy behavioral patterns, and to facilitate astral travel, shedding bad habits. It grounds, calms and protects, particularly the dark blue color, and enhances communication skills. It has been used in treating attention deficit problems in children (ADD).
Eudialyte is said to increase and revitalize one's personal power. Psychically, it helps with clairaudience, manifestation, and psychic resonance. It is a protective stone and one of the heart, bringing harmony in matters of the heart and dispelling feelings of envy or jealousy. Emotionally it is helpful for learning to trust oneself and others, and eases compulsive behavior and thinking. In crystal healing, Eudialyte is good for healing emotional trauma, increasing overall vitality, eye problems, pancreas problems, thyroid problms, and purifying the blood..Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
