A Stone Of Balance, Grounding and Manifestation!

Written By Liz Oakes

Cassiterite helps to bring Divine light into your body from the source of all that is, and it has an excellent influence on the intellect, and has a useful effect to aid intellectual problem solving.

This is a powerful stone to use in meditation to aid shamanic journeying, and is a helpful stone to soothe the dying before they cross over to the other side.


It may help you to release energetic debris that is holding back your life's journey, and it is a helpful stone to aid spiritual grounding.

This crystal has a strong spiritual grounding energy, and has an interesting mix of balancing your energy and energizing you depending on what you may need.

It can be very helpful for anyone who has deeply long held childhood issues of rejection that they have not dealt with.

Where Is It From? Cassiterite Meaning

This stone is a type of tin oxide, and the most common colors found are black, brown and red-brown stones.

It can also be colorless, white, yellow-grey, yellow and red. This crystal is also known as tinstone, and the meaning of the name Cassiterite comes from the Greek word meaning 'tin'.

It is found in the United Kingdom, China, Malaysia, Australia, Namibia, Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico and the United States, so it is quite widespread.

These crystals are reasonably common, but they don't look spectacular or attractive to the eye, as they are quite small and unassuming.

Their configuration is prismatic or even pyramid shaped and this stone also occurs in the massive form.

Why Would You Use It?

This is a crystal where you don't need a large piece of it to help you, as its common for even tiny crystals to have a fairly obvious vibration.

You should be able to feel the energy of Cassiterite quite easily, because it has a deep energy that makes a distinct earth chakra connection, yet with a quite obvious difference in the energy.

This stone is also said to give you protection physically from danger, while making a strong connection with what is called the deep source, and the doorway that links you to the other side.

This is the place where each of us passes at birth and death, the level of beginnings and endings, life and death. So you may imagine that its vibration is anything but ordinary.

These crystals are said to assist the dying, helping you to let go of all the issues that may be holding your spirit on the earth plane, to aid the soul to move from the body to the light.

How Will It Help You?

there are a number of ways that Cassiterite can help you including:

  • This crystal has a strong spiritual grounding energy that makes a deep connection through the base or root chakra to the depths of the earth and Mother Gaia.
  • The specific energy that you can make a connection with by using Cassiterite, is there at the time of your birth, when your spirit enters this world and also when its time to pass through the doorway and go to the other side again.

It will help you when you feel the need to clear out unnecessary stuff energetically, spiritual debris that seems to accumulate because you've taken no action to let go of it.

This can be done by anyone, if you feel the call for deep change. This is the energy that pulls your spirit to the earth plane to be present here in your current form in this incarnation.

  • It may be a helpful stone to have nearby newly born children to help to ground them into this life.
  • This is a stone that may be used if you are facing death, but can be used at any time without any fear that it will take you through this doorway before its time to leave.
  • It may be used to help you to feel more balanced, as it aids you to remove energetic blockages where required.

How To Use It

The most powerful way to use it is in meditation, as it is a strong stone for making shamanic journeys.

It has excellent attributes as it keeps you grounded when in meditation, it is protective and also helps you to manifest your desires.


By using Cassiterite for meditation you will be enabled to let go of ideas and ideals that are no longer suitable for the way your life is now. 

It helps you to heal old issues and to forgive anyone that may have caused you grief by imbuing you with deep compassion for others.

The energy of this crystal brings optimism. They may assist you to let go of feelings relating to any rejection you may have experienced in your life, and may help you to discover soul lessons about the issues.

While some colors are said to have specific attributes, any colored stones will vibrate within all of the chakras from the solar plexus chakra down. The darker stones are highly recommended for grounding as you'd expect.

You may notice that many dark ones have red spots within them. The red stones aid your energy so these dark stones containing red may also help you in this way.

The yellow stones are said to be best to stimulate the intellect, and the white or colorless stones will stimulate the crown chakra

All colors stimulate the solar plexus chakra, sacral chakra, base and earth chakra and the soul star chakra in the etheric above the head.

Who Should Use It?

This stone has a quite positive vibration for augmenting manifestation, and for heightened levels of prosperity in your life.

When the solar plexus chakra is stimulated it is common for this to aid you to manifest your desires.

By using the energy of Cassiterite stones within the third chakra, commonly known as the power chakra, it aids you to bring the necessary energy through to aid you to manifest.

It helps you to bring through those things, desires, dreams or hopes for the future into your reality. A very powerful resonance is emitted from this stone, that draws energy into your life from the non-physical realms.

It brings a lightening of your spirit. This is especially helpful combined with its vibration that helps you to release cellular memories and for this to encourage deep healing at the soul level.

Physically it may aid healing of issues relating to hormonal disturbances, including obesity.

Cassiterite has a strong spiritual grounding energy, and has a good mix of balancing your energy and energizing you, depending on what you may require.

It is a helpful stone for anyone who has been told they have a terminal illness. It can help them to deal with outstanding issues holding them here on this plane of existence.

It may be very useful to use it if you have any long held deep childhood issues of rejection that you have not already dealt with.

This crystal helps to bring Divine light into your body from the source of all that is and is a powerful stone to use in meditation.  It will assist you to release energetic stuff that is holding back your life's journey.

"The word happiness would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness." Carl Gustav Jung.

When you buy a new stone or crystal, it is advantageous to use it on its own first. Once you are fully aware of its energy, you may choose to combine it with other stones. Combine stones for short periods to begin with, as individuals may react differently.

But knowing how you can combine various stones may be helpful, as this allows you to get the most from your crystals, and may help you to solve specific problems in your life.
