Heulandite is a member of the Zeolite group of minerals; a hydrated Aluminum Calcium Sodium Silicate that occurs in basalt cavities. It is a high vibration crystal that, when used in meditation, may open your eyes to your past life and experiences (and even to past civilizations).
Other uses of heulandite span from as simple as getting in touch with your deepest emotions, as profound as unlocking your psychic abilities.
The Physical Properties of Heulandite
This mineral grows in transparent crystal grains and masses. It can also form as small rhombic or coffin-shaped crystals. You'll see Heulandite in various colours like white, yellow, orange, peach, brown, green, and red.
The green one is often used in crystal healing because of its association with the heart chakra. Trace amounts of celadonite is what gives green heulandite its colour. With a hardness rating of only 3.5 to 4, heulandite is a brittle mineral.
The History of Heulandite
Heulandite was first found in 1818 by German mineralogist August Breithaupt. He spotted the specimen on top of a piece of stilbite and called it Euzeolite (meaning beautiful Zeolite).
But the official discovery was only declared in 1822 when English crystallographer Henry James Brooke discovered the mineral and named it Heulandite in honor of the famous English mineralogist John Henry Heuland.
Most Heulandite specimens on the market are extracted from Iceland and India. The red varieties come from Scotland and Northern Italy.
Besides stilbite, Heulandite is also associated with other minerals in the Zeolite family like Epistilbite and Brewsterite. These minerals share the same physical properties and molecular structures with Heulandite.
The Lore of Heulandite
Crystal healers believe that Heulandite can help treat abnormal mass of tissues (growths). It may also aid in effective weight loss. Heulandite has the ability to heal the bladder, liver, and kidneys.
Overall, this crystal helps keep the physical body in top shape as it speeds up healing and maintains smooth blood circulation and good mobility.
