Nickel is the ‘brother’ of Iron and we find Nickel-Iron alloy primarily in two places. At the very core of the Earth and in the meteorites that fall to Earth. Garnierite taps into the Universe’s most essential energies. It is powerfully connected to the ancient Earth and the cosmos. It embodies a fascinating balance of energies that seems to grow and evolve as the stone is held. It offers a sense of safety and peace while igniting the creative mind and a sense of wonder.
As a healing stone, Garnierite is most commonly associated with the Heart Chakra, emotional stress relief and spiritual growth. Garnierite works on the relationship between the Heart and Solar Plexus chakras, encouraging us to find the courage to pursue our hearts true desires. It can help us speak up for ourselves and even remove our own mental blocks that restrict our growth.
