Where Is It From? Pargasite Meaning

The name of this stone relates to the location Pargas in Finland, where it was found back in 1814.

While it is found in a number of other places these days, large amounts have recently been mined in Vietnam.

Other locations where it is found includes Tanzania, Japan, Burma, Pakistan, Hawaii and a number of other locations in the USA.

This crystal is a member of the amphibole group of minerals, and forms as lovely transparent to translucent prismatic or tabular crystals, as well as in the massive form and as platy or grainy  crystals.

The lovely apple green crystals embedded in marble are now easier to buy, since large amounts started to come out of Vietnam.

Prior to when larger amounts of the green minerals started to come out of Vietnam, the light brown, medium brown, greenish brown, very dark green or black colored crystals were much more common.

The vibration of this stone resonates strongly within the both the heart chakra and the thymus or higher heart chakra.
