Healing Crystal Idocrase

Idocrase is also known as Vesuvianite since it was discovered on Mt Vesuvius. The chemical structure of this stone is calcium aluminum magnesium silicate. Calcium is found in mica and aluminum is found in miniscule quantities in kaolin clay. Mica, kaolin clay, magnesium and silica are all mineral ingredients found in mineral makeup. It has a hardness which ranges from 6 to 7. Idocrase has a tetragonal crystal structure and can be found in either small pyramidal or prismatic structures or in habits which can be granular, compact, columnar or massive habits. This stone can be found in a variety of colors like green, red, purple, yellow, red, white and brown. Colors all have their own special meanings. It can be found in impure lime stones and in igneous rocks like syenite and nepheline. It also occurs in combination with calcite, Diopside, Garnet and Epidote. Idocrase is also found in Sanford, Main, Vermont, and Lowell in United States and Quebec in Canada.

Physical Healing

Idocrase is beneficial in enhancing the strength of the teeth enamel. It also aids in enhancing the creative side of the brain. It works well in healing skin related ruptures and eruptions – such as acne. It’s great for the proper and complete absorption and assimilation of all the nutrients present in food. It’s also great for aiding in treating diverticilosis. Vesuvianite is mainly used for support at all levels. Hence, at the physical level, this stone can aid in strengthening the legs and feet which helps in alleviating conditions like varicose veins and spider veins. It also aids in strengthening all the body tissues as well.

High Vibrations

Idocrase is a high energy stone which can help in all kinds of problems in all chakras. However, different colored Idocrases help in different functions. For example the yellow-green versions of this stone aid in the stimulation and integration of all the chakras particularly the heart and the solar plexus and heart chakras which aids in the alignment of thoughts and the intuitive guidance of the heart. This alignment is essential for enhancing the will while suppressing the over egoistic instincts of a person.

Seeing the Whole Picture

Idocrase also aids in attracting and manifesting all the heart’s desires on this planet. It’s a great stone to know and understand the true purpose and aim of one’s life. It helps the person to muster will power and courage to pursue and realize the true reason for his birth on this planet. While the pink variety of Vesuvianite helps in understanding the true calling of your heart, the yellow green Idocrase will aid in your following it in reality.

This stone also helps in fighting negativity which may have invaded one’s life due to some life events and undesirable circumstances. It restores the lost enthusiasm and zeal for life. It’s also a great stone to dispel self limiting beliefs and fears that reside deep in the subconscious. It helps a person to become more assertive. Most people do want to stand up for the right but fear confrontation. This stone helps in dispelling this fear. It also helps in breaking the old life patterns which are a result of past lives.

Idocrase corresponds to the third eye and heart chakra. The corresponding numbers are 2 and 3. Capricorn and Sagittarius are the ruling signs of this stone.
