VANADINITE #12

Modern metaphysical practitioners believe that vanadinite helps bring emotional sensitivity to analytical minds, generally enhances sensitivity, helps to clear confusion and feelings of purposelessness, and assists in grounding and centering.  Transparent vanadinite crystals are sometimes faceted into collectors’ gems to display their rich, orange-red color.  Vanadinite was the only known source of vanadium until the 1870s, and was also once a minor ore of lead.

 

Because of its bright color, rarity of good specimens, unusual chemistry, and interesting mineralogical associations, vanadinite is one of the most collectible of all minerals.
