Iceland Spar also called Optical Calcite

Iceland Spar was named for the location where it was originally discovered, but it has since been found in other locations.

It is also known as Optical Calcite, and the properties of crystals like these do relate to their action to help your eyesight.

They are wonderful crystals to aid clarity of thought, and they have a strong resonance within the higher chakras, particularly at the third eye and crown chakras.

They are helpful to kindle clarity of thought, and are beneficial when placed on the third eye when you are meditating.

Used this way, Iceland Spar may help you to clearly see what is required in your life. While this crystal was formerly only found in Iceland, other deposits have now been discovered elsewhere.

It also now comes in a range of colors other than clear, due to included minerals, and there are many beautiful colored optical calcite varieties.



Inderite vibrates with a strong energy within the crown chakra, then it will go on to align all of the chakras, creating contentment and serenity.

It is a wonderful stone to release you from the binds of fear caused by beliefs that you may no longer wish to be part of your life.

In particular this refers to strict and orthodox outlooks that create rigidity, and may destroy your ability to be inventive and adventurous in life.

The properties of crystals of Inderite relate to its action to help you to find your own set of personal beliefs, your truth, and to do it calmly, but still feel free to take an adventurous path in a new and maybe different direction.

It aids you to allow yourself to look into new ideas and find out what is right for you, without being stopped by the fear of past ideas and ideals, and it aids decision making.

Its energy will also help you to let go of anger along with the fear, and to go forward with courage when facing new situations. It is a good stone to assist you to manage your money better, and use it more sparingly and so avoid debt.

Iolite Sunstone

Iolite Sunstone is a mixture of metaphysical qualities of both Iolite and Sunstone crystals.

There are two types of this stone now, one that is a combined stone and also a new type that was discovered recently.

It clearly shows the two minerals which are naturally occurring with each other.

Like Iolite stones they have a strong vibration within the third eye chakra, and like Sunstones they bring joy and positive feelings.

The properties of crystals apply to their powerful action to awaken psychic gifts, specifically the ability to utilize prophetic or precognitive visions.

They may also help you to communicate more clearly with spirit guides.

They embody many Iolite qualities, with the added energy from Sunstones that takes the energy down into the lower chakras, where you are able to ground these ideals into your physical existence.
