Science & Origin of Variscite
Variscite, also known as Utahlite, is a very rare hydrated aluminum phosphate mineral that crystallizes in the form of masses and crusts. Rarely does it occur in crystal form, but when it does it is seen in an octahedral shape. The colors can range from light green to teal, which is similar to that of Turquoise. The green color comes from impurities of Chromium. Variscite can sometimes be seen with a white mineral called Crandallite formed within or on it. These combo specimens are highly desired by jewelers to be cut into cabochons. Variscite was first discovered back in 1837 by A. Breithaupt and was named after the location it was found in, the ancient German Voigtland district, Variscia. Notable modern day localities include the United States (specifically Arizona and Nevada), as well as Australia, Brazil, Spain, Germany, and Poland.
Meaning & Energy
Variscite is an exceptional heart stone that helps one connect with their inner being. This mineral heavily promotes inner peace and clarity of the mind, while helping one slowly establish control over their emotional body. Working with this mineral helps teach our minds to simplify every situation and stop obsessing over the outcome. We have little control over anything in this world except for our own emotions and how we react. Variscite is here to serve as a reminder of that and push you to slow down and live in the moment. Connect with the things and beings around you and allow their love to transcend you into unimaginable heights. Meditate with this stone daily over your heart space to maximize its healing potential. Focus on the negative emotions that may already exist inside of you when beginning to work with Variscite.
Healing Your Heart
We suggest using this stone in association with other heart healing stones for the best results. Try meditating with Rose Quartz, Pink Tourmaline, Rhodochrosite, Green Calcite or Chrysoprase. These minerals are all producers of pure love and when combined with Variscite, can fill one’s aura with compassion that touches everything around you. One will soon notice a change in their daily attitude and their perception of the world. Positivity will soon be restored to one’s heart and mind, while also maintaining a clear and confident outlook.
