Green apophyllite minerals are beautiful pyramidal shape crystals that range from pale to medium green in color and are translucent to transparent. Some are as clear as glass. It is a hydrated potassium calcium silicate that is often found as a secondary crystal to zeolites such as stilbites and heulandites, but though it is structurally related to the zeolites, it is not a member of the zeolite family. It has the ability to conduct electricity due to its high water content. It belongs to the mineral class of phyllosilicates/silicates and it exhibits a tetragonal crystal system and a hardness of 4.5 to 5. This gemstone is relatively common, having been found in Brazil, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Germany, Mexico, Japan, New Zealand, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Spain, UK, and the USA, as well as the location where it was first discovered by a farmer: India.

Green apophyllite is the gemstone associated with the astrological signs of gemini and libra. Its numerical vibration is a 4. Its frequency primarily resonates with the third eye chakra, and secondarily with the crown and higher crown chakras, but it also connects to the heart chakra. Heart chakra energy is said to become balanced and cleansed in the proximity of green apophyllite natural crystal pyramids. This assists the wearer to see an issue from varied perpectives, untainted by ego or fear, and properly tackle situations and decisions of the heart. It may also promote forgiveness and healing by helping the owner to let go of harbored resentments. It is believed to help keep the emotions in balance, give off a loving, gentle energy and enhance one’s spiritual growth and conscious awareness, so it is a wonderful aid in meditation. It could open up your psychic abilities and give you the power of clairvoyance, even if you have never used your psychic vision before, as it is claimed to infuse you with spiritual love and light and open you up to contact from beings in the higher realms. Additionally, green apophyllite can be useful to you if you desire to become more in tune with the vibrations of nature and energy fields of mother earth, in that it can connect you to the energy of growth and consequently the plant kingdom, bring you closer to nature’s devas and spirits and improve animal communication.
