Albite is a helpful crystal to use as it stimulates the brain, which can enhance your memory and boost you mentally.
It has a number of useful effects within the crown chakra and the brain, including helping you to think more clearly and logically.
These white crystals assist you to be inspired to take action when required and are beneficial to use for meditation as their energy activates the third eye which may intensify your intuitive gifts.
They may awaken psychic powers, and also enhance exploration within the spiritual realms. Keep on the body during the day or keep a piece in the bedroom to encourage lucid dreaming.
Its energy within the brain is also helpful for healing physical problems within the brain and may also aid a number of other health issues.
The meaning of the name Albite relates to a Latin word meaning white, as there was commonly a plentiful supply of the pearly white colored stone when it was discovered.
Other colors since found include colorless, blue, grey, pink, brown and reddish brown. Their perceived color may relate to inclusions in the stone, as they may visually seem to take on the color of the included mineral.
These stones are a type of feldspar and often occur as quite brittle stone... in the platy, tabular and massive form.
They are found in a number of places, including in South Africa, Canada, the USA and in Scandinavian countries such as Greenland.
They may occur with inclusions of other minerals in them, including Green Tourmaline, which you can see in one of the pictures further down the page.
One of the more powerful reasons to use these stones is their action within the crown chakra to stimulate the brain, which may initiate clear and logical thinking.
By also assisting you to have a more orderly approach to your thought processes this may aid you to acquire knowledge in a new way.
They may help you to create a more balanced lifestyle, helping you to plan your life and ensure that no aspect of life becomes out of proportion and takes more of your energy than it should.
Their energy may be useful for students by both helping you to think differently and to retain what you have learned.
They also have a good healing action within the brain as well as helping to heal a number of other heath issues.
The vibration of Albite is known to bolster your intuitive ability and enhance your memory, and may help to stimulate inspirational thinking.
While all of us are intuitive to some degree, it can be helpful to boost your intuition if you do not feel that it has been working as well as you'd like.
Inspiration is often closely related to intuition and you may find that they come together when using this stone, assisting you to discover the actions to take to create the life you desire.
The unity of inspiration and intuition can be quite empowering and may be highly effective to allow you to gain greater clarity about what your future path might look like.
While it is not common for this stone to be made into crystal jewelry, it is an Aquarius birthstone, so it may be possible to find crystal birthstone jewelry made from this stone.
It is possible to buy Albite pendants at shops that specialize in stones to use for metaphysical purposes. Wearing jewelry is my favorite way to use most stones, as its an easy way to keep it on your body.
While you can keep this stone in your pocket, you will need to buy a tumbled stone like the one at the top of the page. Raw natural pieces are often quite fragile and so could break easily if kept in your pocket.
Some pieces of natural Albite stone may also be very large pieces, so again this makes it hard to keep it on your body.
If you'd like to use it to help to stimulate lucid dreaming, keep a piece on your body during the day, as this may be advantageous.
Alternatively simply place a larger specimen in the bedroom near to where you sleep, so its vibration will encourage you to lucid dream.
The vibration of these stones has an advantageous effect within the chakras above the heart. In particular it resonates within the third eye and crown chakras, as mentioned above.
