The word "gabbro" came into use a few hundred years ago, when stones discovered in Italy were named Gabbro after a little village in Tuscany.
The Italian origin and meaning isn't really related specifically to this type of Gabbro, but relates to the general way that these gabbro stones form.
Gabbro is a type of raw mineral with a course grain, formed in molten magma.
This is an iron and magnesium rich stone, an igneous rock that has a number of minerals included in it.
Indigo Gabbro is commonly a mix of quartz feldspar and minerals such as chlorite, muscovite, serpentine and magnetite, but may have other minerals included.
Indigo Gabbro was discovered fairly recently and is found only in Madagascar.
Its color is quite lovely and while it is often black it has quite beautiful chatoyant inclusions in the stone including indigo blue, deep purple blue or a lighter lavender blue gray sections.
Depending on the minerals there may also be inclusions of other colors.
These inclusions may be a bronzy color, similar to the natural piece below, and this color may be seen in some tumbled or polished stone.
It is easy to buy Indigo Gabbro, and you can obtain natural or raw stone, tumblestones and palm stones which are flat on one side.
Regarding Gabbro: There is another stone that is found in Alaska that was also known as Gabbro but is now called Blizzard Stone, and it has a different mineral make-up to the stone featured here.
Crystal sellers and miners name stones in order to differentiate them from each other. This may be thought to stop confusion, but many people find it confusing anyway.
A particular author of crystal books does this a lot, and it does mystify many people.
In some ways using a specific name for stones from a particular area is not a bad thing, as a good part of the energy of stones relate to the location where they formed.
Why is Indigo Gabbro also known as Mystic Merlinite? Mystic Merlinite is a name created by a fairly well known author of crystal books who also trademarked the name.
The name does fit the stones energy, so I can see the reason for this name he created. Not that I agree with it as I know this is confusing.
Be aware that the stone sells under both names. When you buy the stone under the Mystic Merlinite name you may pay more for it due to his trademark.

This will help you you to gain deeper Spiritual perception and may stimulate a great number of gifts or abilities through its powerful resonance.
The piece shown above is a palmstone and these are beneficial to use as they are flat and won't roll off when you get deep into the meditative state.
The vibration of this stone will flow easily from the third eye both upwards into the crown and above into the soul star chakra.
As well the energy will easily flow downwards via the throat chakra, which is also commonly triggered, then will continue down to the base chakra, filling your entire body with its vibration as it moves down.
