A rare, hydrous potassium iron titanium silicate from Russia. This heavy, soft and fragile mineral tends to form bladed formations that often radiate from a central point like a star. The name is from the Greek astron meaning "star" and phyllon for "leaf". Found in cavities and fissures in unusual felsic igneous rocks, astrophyllite is associated with feldspar, mica, titanite, zircon, nepheline and aegirine. Common impurities include magnesium, aluminium, calcium, zirconium, niobium and tantalum.
In metaphysical terms, astrophyllite allows for the recognition of self- esteem and limitless possibility, as we are all "stars". It also supports change: as one door closes another opens.
Astrophyllite is a stone of growth and moving forward on the path of your life. It will fill you with energy and motivation for change. It is said to infuse your entire system with light. If you happen to have one, cherish it as it is a precious, unique and rare item and you should treasure it accordingly. Don’t seek this stone out, let it come to you.
So here they are... I only have 4 of them, and they are exquisite as you can see.
