Overview:A stone of spiritual enlightenment, Seraphinite’s feathery wings whisk you up to a high spiritual vibration and this stone is excellent for making journeys out of the body, protecting the physical body while you are away. In addition to carrying the generic properties of chlorite, it accesses self-healing and makes angelic connection.

Promoting living from the heart, Seraphinite assists in reviewing the progress you have made in life and with identifying the changes needed. In healing, Seraphinite works best at a subtle level, aligning the aura with the light body, and activating the spinal cord and the links to the etheric body situated behind the heart. It’s effects are then passed into the physical body.

Seraphinite (serafina, chlinochlore) is often referred to an an angel stone because of its higher energies and relationship with angels. Seraphinite is said to help contact angels and communicate with them. Psychically, seraphinite is beneficial for intuition and psychic awareness.

Legend:Seraphinite apparently acquired its name due to its resemblance to feathers, such as one might find on a bird's wing. With some specimens the resemblance is quite strong, with shorter down-like feathery growths leading into longer "flight feathers"; the resemblance even spurs fanciful marketing phrases like "silver plume seraphinite."

Occurrence: It comes from mine “Korshunovskaia” which is situated not far from Baikal Lake in Eastern Siberia, Russia.
