The Physical Franklinite

Franklinite is a zinc, iron and manganese containing octahedral crystal of opaque black color with reddish brown to black streaks. This mineral has a weak magnetic charge that becomes stronger when it is heated. When it is heated it becomes infusible and hydrochloric acid will disolve it without effervesence. Much of this crystal is found in Franklin, New Jersey.

The Metaphysical Franklinite

Franklinite is related to the astrological sign of Gemini. In numerology, this crystal vibrates to the number 2. Since it is a grounding stone and the color black, it must be associated with the base chakra or energy system of the physical body.

Physical Healing

Franklinite is able to stimulate hair growth (watch out Rogane!). It is also useful in treating male reproductive system disorders. It helps clear unhealthy eyes.

Vibrational Healing

Emotional and physical preservation is key for this zinc containing stone. Inventiveness and self expression are stimulated using this rock. Perceptiveness is provided through its vibrations and diplomacy is enhanced. Who wouldn’t want some of these vibrations to be naturally found on your face?
