Prehnite is a calcium aluminum silicate mineral that crystallizes in the form of masses, globular formations, botryoidal, and stalactites. Rarely is Prehnite seen in crystal form, but when it is they are usually very tiny prismatic crystals. Prehnite’s color is usually light yellow or green, but can also be seen as white, tan, grey, or colorless. This mineral was first discovered in 1788 by A.G. Werner. Werner named it after the Dutch military Colonel Hendrik Von Prehn who was in charge of the region where this mineral was found. Since then, Prehnite has been found in China, Scotland, Australia, the United States, and New Zealand. In 2000, an extremely rare pocket of orange Prehnite was discovered in the N'chwaning mine in South Africa. By 2002, the vein was completely exhausted and orange Prehnite has yet to be found again.
Prehnite is one of the very few stones in the mineral kingdom that links our heart directly to our solar plexus chakra. That means that one’s heart space is now directly attached to one’s own personal will. Our personal will is responsible for pushing us forward to take action each day. It's the driving force behind each one of us as we move forward in chasing our goals and desires. By having one's heart directly in touch with their personal will, our purest dreams become a priority. Instead of leading each day with our distracted and confused minds, Prehnite helps us lead with our hearts. Our heart knows what we truly want to do in this world, and how to find happiness. Simply letting your most vital organ lead you along this journey of life will help you better understand both yourself and what you truly want in this world.
We recommend meditating with Prehnite and using it as a manifestation tool. Grasp it firmly to communicate your dreams, goals and desires. Engage with this stone daily to keep those intentions alive so it can be a reminder as to the purpose of your journey. Doing this repeatedly will not only strengthen yourself but also make the universe aware of what it is you truly want. Prehnite is here to show you that you do indeed have complete control of your destiny. You will realize that when you put all of your energy into something you truly love, the opportunities are endless.
While meditating with or sleeping next to a piece of Prehnite, one may feel a strengthened connection to a higher dimension. Interestingly, people often experience contact with spiritual beings and their guardian angels when working with Prehnite. This mineral is a powerful communication stone simply because of one's heart being open and in touch with our will. Our desire for knowledge and answers are endless, even on a subconscious level. Not to mention, in deep meditation or a powerful REM sleep, our heart is looking to grow, prosper, and heal. Prehnite will push individuals living passively towards a higher vibration and help one stay in tune to the energy within.
Prehnite is commonly found intergrown with Epidote. Both of these stones offer up a high vibrational energy that channels directly to one’s heart space. These minerals will help jumpstart one’s heart and fill it with endless rays of love and compassion. Be aware that Epidote is a natural enhancer, good or bad. It will strengthen any emotions we may feel at that moment. We suggest placing this stone to the side if you are having a stressful day.
