Stone of Enlightenment
Seraphinite is the trade name given to a variety of clinochlore, which belongs to the chlorite group. A German geologist named Abraham Gottlob Werner, in 1789, gave the name “chlorite” to this particular stone. This name is derived from the Greek word “chloros” which means ‘green’. In 1851 more specifically named “clinochlore” by combining “chloros” with the Greek “klino” meaning ‘incline’ due to the optic axes of mica inclusions that cause the fibers that shimmer as the stone is turned about in the light.
Thereafter the name Seraphinite (rooted from the Greek “seraphim”) was bestowed as miners felt it resembled the Seraphim angels, which refers to a grand celestial being and highest order of angels, said to attend the throne of god; identified by three pairs of wings.
As such it is said to connect us with the higher divine, opening the channels of communication and energy between our realm and realm of the angelic.

Found particularly in Siberia, Russia; specifically in the region of Lake Baikal.
A magnesium iron aluminum silicate, Seraphinite is characterized by shades of deep green that is interlaced with the shimmering patterns of gem silica that reflect light and appear as feathery wings.
As it is quite a softer gemstone, it is often stabilized for use, which does not damage its natural beauty, and often offers a wonderful sheen when properly polished.

Due to its feathery appearance as well as its link to the Air and Earth elements, Seraphinite is often referred to as an ‘angel stone’. The energy and vibration of this stone is said to bring an influx of light into one’s cells, assisting to facilitate contact as well as communication with one’s guardian angel or the Seraphim angel realm.
As one allows this joyful light energy to flow throughout the body and auric field, one may for a time feel as if they are infused with the resonant energy; it is the dimension of this residual energy which allows the chakras to become unblocked, cleansed and opened, thus often allowing the Kundalini energy to rise as well.
This energy aids in emotional healing, allowing one to release old issues and patterns that are no longer necessary in one’s life, as well as offering one a more open soul and clearer understanding as to accept enlightenment. In turn this enhances one’s emotional behavior towards all others in a more harmonious, peaceful and balanced manner. As an aid in resolving conflicts, promoting constructive compromise and reconciliation, Seraphinite lends power to social skills as well as easily inspiring superior, more valuable relationships.
In addition, as with other clinichlores, Seraphinite encourages a deeper appreciation of all things that grow, whether that be emotionally, physically or spiritually. Supporting and fostering a sense of order in life, the universe and even in chaos; bringing a refinement of tenderness and care to all; offering the true understanding that one is never truly helpless or hopeless in the creation or correction of any portion of one’s personal journey.[/vc_column_text][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Healing Gemstone Properties”][vc_column_text]
One of the more powerful gemstones for the support of healing the physical body, Seraphinite offers support on all healing levels –physical, emotional and spiritual.
Aiding in cellular regeneration, Seraphinite may allow one to become aware of any issues from past lives and generations that are currently causing dis-ease with one now, offering a decline of those systemic ailments.
Strengthening the blood, allowing open flow throughout the body assists in bringing about full wellness. Providing release of muscle tension and relief from chills (whether originating from temperature or illness) eliminating toxins and offering strength to the circulatory and nervous systems; Seraphinite will in turn help to detoxify the liver and kidneys as well.[/vc_column_text][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Magical Gemstone Properties”][vc_column_text]

The energy vibration of Seraphinite rises through the chakra centers. It is particularly attuned to the 4th, Heart Chakra, it is known to open the 7th, Crown Chakra, which in turn the Soul Star Chakra just above. This energy ascends throughout the chakra system and invites the Kundalini to rise along the system as well, clearing and activating each chakra along the way, bringing Divine light throughout one’s being.
Seraphinite links one’s physical being with the ethereal, being quite powerful for opening communications with the angelic realms, particularly those beings concerned with restoring humanity and the planet earth to a healthy, prosperous balance.
As it is particularly attuned to the 4th, Heart Chakra, Seraphinite may link the Soul Star Chakra to the Heart Chakra, infusing the aura with vibrations of well-being, nurturing wholeness and love as Seraphinite’s energy is feminine in tone.
This energy is all encompassing not only the one who wears or carries it, but although those who behold its beauty, clearing auric and meridian blockages that may be holding back one’s spiritual growth, aligning the soul bodies and opening one to the astral body vibration, harmonizing and purifying the aura.[/vc_column_text][/vc_accordion_tab][/vc_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″]
