Purpurite is a purple stone that encourages you to feel free to speak out.

If you have been aware of any self-destructive situations, that may be limiting your personal growth, this stone helps to clear these problems.
The meaning of its name comes from the Latin word 'purpura' which means purple.
This beautiful purple stone has been found in Australia, Namibia, France, and the USA.
Its color is purple, and although it is usually quite a deep purple, some pieces may be pinkish or lavender purple.
Purpurite mineral is a manganese phosphate mineral and its color is caused by various amounts of manganese and iron in the stones.
This mineral is not crystalline in nature, but has a massive form, with the raw stone having a matte finish, although they can be polished up to make nice jewelry.
Most of the stone selling is natural rough pieces but you can also get tumblestones and polished pieces including Purpurite pendants and other jewelry.
Although this stone is not a very common stone and has been classified as a rare mineral you can buy it from good crystal suppliers.
I have seen it selling quite a lot lately, so possibly new deposits may have been discovered.
This purple stone stimulates highly spiritual energies of clarity and insight, sharp focus and encourages the growth of courtesy and tactfulness of those involved.

It may also help you to break old patterns. Sometimes you are so used to your life, and the way you live, that you stay with what you perceive as security.
This may be in your job or in your relationships, even when you know intuitively that you might be better to move on.
This purple stone will help you to make choices, about when it is time to take that new exciting path, and when to make the choice to stay put where you are.
This stone is an excellent aid when contacting angels.
It will also help you to make a strong connection that may help you to find and communicate with your spirit guide.

truth to you, so it is a beneficial crystal for tarot readers or if you
are in any other type of psychic employment.

So it ensures that when you link to your guides or any spiritual beings, that they are of 'the Light'.
This stone has a calming vibration that will help to relieve stress so this is another advantage to keeping it within your auric field.
It does not form crystals, but it is a very attractive color, and while it is not common, some jewelry is made from the stone.
Many Purpurite stones carry a light sheen, and these are made into lovely pendants. If you are unable to get jewelry, having a piece of this stone on your body is beneficial.
Keeping a piece under the pillow at night is helpful if you wish to experience astral travel.
The metaphysical properties of these stones are also related to its action to support you to separate your astral body from your physical body, and to remain fully aware as you complete the process.
It is said to allow contact with angelic beings and with your own spirit guides who may be present at these times.
This stone may aid you to avoid frustration if you are selling your home. It carries within it an energy that will help to remedy any conflicts that may be preventing the sale of the home.
This may be particularly important if the problem is linked to past life conflicts. The energy of Purpurite is highly ethical in nature.
The warning here is that this will only work if the situation is for the highest good of all involved.
Any type of misuse of this stone is not possible, as it carries an energy that will turn the vibration around if you try to misuse its power.
It will lift any negativity from the environment, that might be holding back the facilitation of the sale going through to completion.
It is powerful to remove any 'curses' or negative energy that has been deliberately added into the situation to prevent a sale happening.
If there are group energies involved in the sale, it will calm the situation and allow the flow of normal energy to happen, and encourage compromise and agreement.
