Ulexite encourages you to develop the gift of clairvoyance and of far-seeing, either far in time, or far in distance.
Their energy also aids the development of a number of other psychic gifts.
It's vibration has the capability to assist you to read the energy and intentions of others, and to stimulate the gift of telepathy.
It is an interesting stone, that may be either colorless or white, and has fiber-optic capabilities.
It is a stone that has metaphysical properties that connect the emotions and the mind, to enable you to see what you are feeling more clearly, and is a strong stone to stimulate the imagination.
The meaning of the Ulexite name comes from it being named after the German chemist George L Ulex but it is also known as TV rock or stone.
George Ulex resolved its chemical formula. Its mineral make-up is hydrated sodium calcium borate hydroxide or the mineral borax.
They most commonly are available as a white rounded crystalline masses and although it is commonly white in color, some have semi-clear patches.
The biggest deposits of this stone are in arid regions such as the deserts in the United States.
It forms in the arid climate of Death Valley in the Californian Mountains, and one of the principal places that the stone comes from is the U.S. borax mine in the Kramer District in Boron California.
Other well known places where it is from, includes the Tarapaca Region in Chile and Kazakhstan as well as in Germany, China, Turkey, Argentina, Canada and Nervada in the USA.
This is the most well known of the borate minerals.
There are a number of other stones containing the trace element boron that also have beneficial metaphysical properties including Howlite, Kernite and Colemanite.
Ulexite is a structurally complex mineral that is commonly located in evaporative deposits and is found after the evaporation of water.
This leaves a tuft of acicular crystals that often resembles a cotton ball, but most of the stones used for metaphysical purposes are white rounded crystals.
The other name or nick-name for Ulexite Stone is TV stone and it is known by this name because of its strange and rather unusual optical characteristics.
The optical fibers of these interesting minerals have a unique structure that creates an unusual optical effect.
It is said that if you place a piece of Ulexite on top of written material, and look through the side of the specimen, or the top surface of the stone at the right angle it may be reflected in the top of the stone, like a TV.
If you have a good specimen of this stone you may make this unusual optical phenomenon happen.
But it is not always easy to bring up an image of an object and I have found it difficult to make my specimens of television stone reflect exactly as reported.
The optic properties of specimens of Ulexite make it something of a curiosity, yet this is of no real importance, for those who buy the stone for metaphysical purposes.
It is similar in looks to Selenite, and like Selenite it may melt or distort in some way when put in water, so it must be cleansed with care. So use one of the crystal cleansing methods that are safe for these types of stones.
