Shattuckite is a strong psychic communication stone.
It will also facilitate a stronger connection with your personal guides and teachers, and your loved ones who have passed over.
It will assist with the development of some of the more well known psychic powers such as clairvoyance or psychic visions and intuition
In addition it also helps you to develop some of the less well known psychic gifts.
This includes mediumship, channeling, psychic knowing and automatic writing, and will assist you to do all from a position of absolute truth.
They are significant healing crystals for you to consider using as they allow you to communicate better with the spirit world, as they heighten the vibration of your connection.
This ensures that any connection you make will be with guides of the highest vibration.
The name of this stone is derived from where it was first found, in the Shattuck mine in Arizona.
It has since been found in a number of locations including other places in the USA, Britain, Greece, Austria, Germany, Norway, the Congo, Namibia and South Africa.
There are two spellings of the name, and its name may also be spelled Shattukite, either spelling may be used.
There is predominance of blue shades, from light blue, to medium blue, to dark indigo blue, as well as turquoise, green, red, brown and cream.
It is often found in combination with a variety of other minerals, and most pieces of Shattukite come in a mottled mixture of colors, as you can see from the photos.
Ajoite with Shattuckite is a common naturally occurring combination of minerals and you can read more about this on my in-depth page about Ajoite.
This stone helps you to align yourself with the Divine mind, and lovingly allow all of your communications to reflect the wisdom of Spirit.
It aids you to heal relationships, as you take responsibility for your past actions, and it strengthens your ability to lovingly speak with truth and integrity.
The vibration of this stone within the heart chakra aids you to live your life from the heart, speaking the truth from your heart.
This concept is about actually living your life from a heart based perspective. Sometimes how you live means more than what you say to others.
This crystal has a strong ability to aid you to experience clear psychic visions.
If you wish to work as a medium it will expand your ability to communicate with Spirit, and to better communicate back to your clients what you have heard.
It aids you to verbalize what you have heard from spirit, and it promotes the ability to speak the truth.
This may take some work at managing, as it is not always comfortable for those you are speaking with, to hear the truth, but Shattuckite is utilized by spirit for the highest and best good of those concerned.
Within the physical body it will heal the spleen, clear blockages, help in the treatment of tonsillitis and act as a general tonic for the body.
It will also remove hypnotic commands, and edicts against using your psychic vision. This may even apply to past life curses or commands for secrecy.
The darker indigo Blue Shattuckite stones may stimulate your visionary abilities. They are excellent to use in a meditation to develop psychic gifts as they work strongly within the third eye chakra.
The lighter blue stones have a lovely energy, and they work well within the throat chakra, and the green stones within the heart chakra.
This is a highly desirable stone to use for developing your psychic communication abilities.
This is a strong psychic crystal, and helps you if you are working on channeling, and want to strengthen your ability to speak the words as they come through from spirit.
It has an interesting strength that is quite unusual in that it will stimulate your faculty of synesthesia. This is the gift of sensory interpretation, which is where sounds and colors have a scent or aroma.
This is strong spiritual gift that has been well known through the ages, and is very helpful to aid those with psychic gifts to make more sense of the information coming through from Spirit.
It will assist you to communicate with truth and accuracy. Shattuckite is also a powerful stone for psychically protecting you, and will protect you against possession during channeling.
Psychic knowing is a psychic gift strongly related to channeled automatic writing, the vibration of this stone may help you.
It helps the flow of words from the Divine source, and will aid all communication abilities through its action in the throat chakra.
Shattuckite is easy to buy, and many stones have a mixture of colors, and these are the stones that are the more useful ones to acquire if possible.
To assist the progress of development of your abilities, it may be advantageous to wear it on your body, to keep its vibration within your energy field.
Shattuckite pendants are available and come in a range of different colors. All of these stones have a variety of various colors within them.
The piece you choose is of course an individual choice, and should be governed by what you intuitively feel is right for you.
There are quite bright even quite startling colors in the stones, like the bright blue stone I bought shown on the right, and this makes them pleasant to wear as jewelry.
If you are unable to find jewelry made from this stone, you may choose to have a nice piece wire wrapped so you can wear it. The regular use of Shattukite stone will promote the growth of mediumship. This is the ability to communicate with those on the other side of the veil.
An alternative to jewelry is to carry a stone in your pocket. Using it may help you to develop your intuition, and it is a powerful asset for anyone in psychic employment.
The place to wear it is as close to the throat as possible, so it will be able to vibrate within the chakras above and below it and be the most effective.
This stone helps you to see the subtleties underlying the obvious, and this is one of the reasons why it is known as a crystal for tarot readers and astrologists to use in their practice.
It will allow you to communicate better with the spirit world, as it is known to heighten the vibration of your connection. This is a useful stone to use as it is highly protective.
And at the same time it assists you to develop your psychic gifts. Shattuckite may be used in meditation to strengthen your psychic gifts and will help you to learn how to be psychic.
As mentioned earlier, it may occur in a variety of colors, and depending on the stone you choose, the color has a large bearing on which of the chakras it will stimulate the most.
If you wish to develop psychic knowing, combine this stone with daily writing in a journal to encourage this gift.
In summary, remember that Shattuckite has many unusual gifts inherent within its vibration, that rarely occur together in other stones, so its worth seeing if you can acquire a piece.
If you wish to get the most from its strong energy, where possible keep a piece on your body.
Once you regularly begin to use it, this may encourage you to experience clairvoyance or psychic visions, even if this is not your strongest gift.
There are a number of crystal books that are comprehensive reference books on crystals.
Whether you have just started and are new to crystals or have been using stones for some time, there are books to suit your level of knowledge.
You can read reviews of lots of books on my book review page, including those for people new to crystals. Melody's Encyclopedia, Love Is In The Earth, is a book that contains more than most.
But although it give you lots of information it's a big heavy book and not one to take with you when shopping for crystals.
There are quite few other crystal books that are worth owning, including a large number of books written by Judy Hall.
The Crystal Bible series by Judy Hall are excellent reference books and light enough to carry with you on trips to the crystal shop! I have written reviews of books that I feel are the best among those selling.
There are a lot of books available, and some are better than others so before you buy one for yourself, read the reviews of my favorite crystal books here.
To accentuate the vibration of truth that this stone carries, combine it with other stones that help you with seeing who is telling you the truth, or that assist you to speak the truth.
Stones to choose include Amazonite, Sunstone, Montebrasite or Goshenite aka Clear or White Beryl.
To specifically aid this stones action within the third eye chakra, combine it with high vibration stones such as Natrolite, Brookite, Afghanite or Phenacite.
Other third eye stones you may choose to use it with includes Lapis Lazuli, Blue Topaz, Arfvedsonite and Lazulite.
To aid your channeling abilities this stone is powerful on its own. But combined with other channeling stones, or specific crystals that aid its action to help you to develop the gift of mediumship, you may find that you move forward faster.
Some of this group of stones includes Blue Hemimorphite, Spurrite, Petoskey Stone and Merlinite.
A crystal called Quantum Quattro, which is a stone that naturally contains a combination of Shattuckite, Dioptase, Smokey Quartz, Malachite and Chrysocolla is available, and using this stone is an alternative to using just Shattukite.
Shattuckite harmonizes well with any of the stones that constitute part of Quantum Quattro, as well as other copper based stones which specifically stimulate the throat chakra.
Other copper based stones you might choose includes Ajoite In Quartz, Kinoite or Brochantite.
