Science & Origin of Paragonite

Paragonite is a sodium aluminum silicate and a member of the Mica family of crystals. It crystallizes in the form of masses and fibrous veins commonly found in metamorphic schists. The color of Paragonite can vary between yellow, grey, white, green, and colorless. Its type locality is Mt. Campione in Tessin, Switzerland, and was at first thought to be a similar-looking mineral known as Talc. This discovery led to its new name being derived from the Greek word “paragon” meaning misleading. Paragonite can be found in various counties such as Russia, Italy, Japan, Australia, Germany, Canada, France, and the U.S.A.

Unique Rarity

This mineral is generally classified as common and can be found all over the world. However, if you are a mineral collector or looking to channel Paragonites energies it may be very difficult to acquire a piece. The small supply that is on the market primarily comes out of Russia. There is a history of this stone being misidentified as Fuchsite or Golden Mica and we believe this has led to its increasing rarity today.


Meaning & Energy

Paragonite channels loving vibrations into your heart and assists in the realignment of your entire chakra column. Its soft energy is capable of revitalizing your aura and calming your mind. Paragonites maintains a powerful connection with Mother Earth that can help you in grounding your thoughts, emotions, and ideas. This stone is perfect for anyone struggling with keeping their mind and body in sync. If you ever feel out of sync it may be due to overlapping emotions, excess multi-tasking, or simply the daily stressors of life. Paragonite is a tool to help you unwind and connect back to your soulful mission. Try placing this piece directly over your heart during meditation and begin to slow your breathing. This small exercise is extremely beneficial and we highly recommend it.

Crystal Pairings

When working with Paragonites energies we recommend enhancing it with two different types of stone; grounding and heart revitalizing crystals. Powerful grounding stones that we love recommending to fellow practitioners are Hematite, Goethite, Black Tourmaline, Garnet, Black Moonstone, and . When looking to expand your heart chakra, even more, try pairing Paragonite with heart stones such as Morganite, Kunzite, Pink Tourmaline, Stilbite, Malachite, and Rose Quartz.
