Science & Origin of Saussurite

Saussurite is the name given to a rare pseudomorph (meaning one mineral replaced another; a false form) feldspar that commonly contains a group of minerals. Some of these being Zoisite, Epidote, Scapolite, Albite, and other sodium rich silicates. It is only found crystallized in the form of masses, making this a highly sought after stone for master craftsmen and sculptors. Saussurite was first discovered in Mount Blanc some time in between 1760-1778 by Horace Benedict de Saussure (a famed Genevan geologist and mountaineer). It is believed that he originally thought this mineral was actually a variety of Jade. That belief was shared from the time of his death in 1799 all the way up until 1806. That is when Nicolas Theodore de Saussure (his son) correctly identified this mineral as a completely new feldspar, thus naming it in honor of his late father. Since then, this mineral has been found in Australia, China, India, and Russia.

Meaning & Energy

Saussurite is a stone of transformation, specifically relating to your emotional wants and needs. The energy omitted can be felt upon touch and leads one to eventually raise the question, “What am I capable of?” A question one may have accidentally forgotten or purposely ignored. That doesn't matter anymore, because working with Saussurite challenges one’s entire way of thinking, as it’s energies are directly intune with the heart’s desires. Instead of your mind continuously making decisions based on our lower dimensional reality, your heart only judges from what's within. This important attribute allows one to solely make decisions off past experiences, both physically and emotional. This allows you to use first-person judgment, alongside your intuition to understand what is best for the current you.

Ascend to a Higher Consciousness

Saussurite is a high vibrational stone and is not only here to raise inner emotions to the surface, but to also ascend your consciousness. As one begins this transformational journey, you must be looking ahead and embrace the life that comes. Our divine beings and spiritual guides are here to direct and protect us on this journey. Saussurite pushes one’s spirits to heights capable of understanding these beings and their messages through deep meditation experiences.


Use Saussurite in your meditation work alongside other high vibration minerals that will awaken your unique psychic abilities. Some of these stones (to name a few) are Blue Kyanite, Iolite, , Cavansite, and Covellite . These stones will help achieve visionary experiences. They will also play a vital role in keeping one on the path towards totality, in addition to staying connected to our spiritual guides.

Starting Fresh With Saussurite

The best piece of advice we can offer when working with this stone is to completely forget everything you’ve been taught and think you know. Start with a fresh slate and only direct your energies to that of which you have personal experiences with. This will provide clarity of the mind and increase the connection it has on the heart.
