Prehnite

Prehnite

More Info

Prehnite belongs to the Phyllosilicate sub-class of minerals - a calcium aluminum silicate hydroxide with an orthorhombic crystal system. Named after its discoverer Colonel Hendrik von Prehn, this gemstone is transparent to translucent with a pearly, waxy, or vitreous lustre. Prehnite is a collection mineral occasionally used for ornamental purposes.


Origin

China


Physical Properties

Prehnite usually occurs in stalactitic, granular, or botryoidal habits. However, it can sometimes form tabular, pyramidal, and colourful crystals. Prehnite shows a unique mother-of-pearl (pearlescent) effect, and even though it’s a common mineral, the gem variety is considered rare. It exhibits 6-6.5 hardness on the Mohs scale, meaning that it is a tough gem suitable for high-quality jewelry.

Another attractive characteristic is its ability to glow in the sunlight and exhibit a moonstone (cat’s eye) effect due to its radial-fibrous structure.


Metaphysical Properties

Prehnite is a stone of inner knowledge unconditional love and can help you in stressful situations. It can change your perception of what’s important and reminds you to prioritize. Furthermore, Prehnite is a stone of recollection and memory. It is capable of bringing peace and calm by enhancing one’s protective field.

It is believed to be very helpful for those who couldn’t let go of material possessions. People who hoard love or possessions do so due to a deep feeling of deprivation (typically coming from past life experiences where they may have experienced a lack of respect or poverty).

Also, Prehnite emphasizes the need for personal evolution, spiritual growth, and alignment of own energies with the Divine. It brings the ability to recognize the truth, improves intuition, and helps harmonize the will for action with the heart to coordinate the deeds with the highest goals of one’s true nature.
