Robert Simmons describes Seraphinite as:
“…a variety of Clinochlore, a hydrous magnesium iron aluminum silicate with hardness of 4. Its crystal system is monoclinic. Seraphinite is found only in the Lake Baikal region of Siberia. It is characterized by its deep green color, lace with shimmering patterns of silver that move with changing angles of light reflection.”
“… the most powerful stones for bringing all the elements of the non physical bodies into alignment along the I AM column of the spinal cord. It is both centering and energizing at the same time…
I have found differences of opinion on the hardness of Seraphinite. Healing Crystals.com has it listed as a hardness of 2-2.5, but Robert Simmons has it as a 4.
Either way, it is a softer stone and easily carved but it will also break if hit so better in pendant or earring than in a bracelet or ring where it would get hit on things more often. It is such a mesmerizing stone to lose yourself in.
Worn, it infuses your auric field with vibrations of wholeness and wellbeing. And it also affects those around you. It is an evolved stone and will help move you along your own spiritual evolution.
It can be used on any chakra or any other body part where “enhanced and harmonized energies” are needed.
I especially like Naisha Ahsian input on the stones so I know how to use them better for my chakras.
Spiritually: Links the physical with angelic levels of energy. Assists in bringing healing to body, mind, spirit and Earth
Emotionally: Aids in releasing emotional energies that no longer serve you. Brings enlightening, joyful energy to the emotional body and stimulates the flow and elasticity of one’s energy to bring it into balance.
Physically: seraphinite helps regulate growth and regulation of all types of cancerous cells. And excellent for general healing of system imbalance or disease. A blood strengthener and can aid cellular respiration and the delivery of nutrients
It is truly amazing that these crystals can affect our physical bodies – blood strengthener and helping cells breath?
