Eilat Stone is both beautiful to look at and has a quite lovely heart felt vibration as well.
Also called Israel Stone, it has such a deep emotionally based energy that it may bring tears to your eyes.
It has strong metaphysical properties that create a calming and balancing reaction.
At the same time it stimulates loving feelings, as it works on adjusting and attuning your emotional system.
Combined with such a loving heart based spiritual energy, its vibration will help your mind and your emotions to work together.
This helps to create an amazing improvement in how you look at life.
The meaning of this stones name relates to the location where it was first found, in the Sinai Peninsula in Israel, on Mount Timna.
This was the worlds first copper mine, located near a place called Eilat.
These wonderful stones have been found in the copper mines near the Red Sea that have existed in that location since the Bronze age, and were mined under the supervision of King Solomon.
While much of the Israel stone sold now comes from outside Israel and comes from copper mines in other places, there is still genuine Eilat Stone available for sale.
Also called Israel Stone, the vibration of these beautiful stones does relate to the highly spiritual energy at this location.
Their strong deep colors are very beautiful. The original mine went under water during flooding some years ago.
Fortunately there are other mines in the same area that mine this stone, so you may obtain genuine Israel Stone from these mines.
It is the national stone of Israel, and is well known as the "stone of King Solomon".
You can get it as polished tumbled stone and made into beautiful Eilat stone jewelry that would be wonderful to wear.
It is also possible to get similar stone from Peru, but it may be sold as Azurite-Malachite-Chrysocolla, and may not have the full range of minerals included in it that the genuine Eilat stone contains.
The Azurite mineral contained within these crystals helps to make a connection within your third eye and your crown chakra, areas related to psychic powers.
It may help to birth wisdom within you, as this is a common outcome.
This stone has also been called the 'sage stone', as it brings wisdom and good judgment to your decision making.
It is an excellent crystal to aid you to find imaginative resolution of life's challenges, and will also help to enhance your creativity.
The vibration of this Israel stone is helpful to stimulate your communication abilities as it has a strong action within the throat chakra.
It clears negative energy, loss and hurt, within both the throat chakra and thymus or higher heart chakra, especially past situations you have not released.
These may relate to conversations and verbally expressed negative emotions.
It balances yin and yang, and does not need to be held to be effective, and it is known to aid the arts of singing and dancing.
The stone of King Solomon is a lovely crystal to wear on the body as it will help to stimulate loving feelings.
It also helps to clear the energy within whichever chakras are appropriate for your personal needs.

The "Stone of King Solomon" is a crystal with a high vibration that is clearly felt by it simply sitting near you.
I was surprised at how strongly it affected me from the moment I brought a piece to live with me.
The energy of this crystal will connect quite easily to your heart and your thymus or higher heart chakra, and you can feel the energy of Eilat Stone working there.
When I brought my first piece of Israel Stone home, I put it on a shelf next to my desk. The strong feelings within my heart and thymus began soon after.
This continued for some hours before I realized that this was the Eilat stone at work.
It will continue working until it has achieved its action of spiritually combining the energy of your heart, throat chakra and the higher heart or thymus chakra.
I particularly noticed its action for the first few days.
Then its intensity lowered a little, possibly as my body and spirit began to adapt and change due to the stimulation of its vibration.
It is advantageous to embrace these feelings, by doing your daily meditation with your specific crystal, as I did, which allows it to do its work.
It is known to be quite effective at helping to lighten your feelings when you are feeling low. This lovely stone is a wonderful asset to use in meditation to aid you to attune your chakras.
