-- Dracula

When our wings have trouble remembering how to fly, the angelic spirit guides of Fuchsite gently lift us to our feet, whispering encouragement and guarding our sensitive souls from the danger of toxic psychic attacks.  Instead of careening towards drama, the Fuchsite crystal acts as a spiritual compass, redirecting the heart to a place where miracles happen. But there’s no need to go searching for miracles, because the miracle is you and your connection to the infinite possibilities of the universe.


The History of Fuchsite


A fairly common mineral, first discovered in the early 1800s, Fuchsite was named in honour of its discoverer, the famed German mineralogist Johann Nepomuk von Fuchs.  Fuchsite can be found all over the world, but some of the most spectacular pieces have been discovered in Brazil, South American and India.


Shamans and ancient healers called this mineral the “Healers’ Stone”, as it was widely believed that the Fuchsite stone’s green colour radiated energy, helping both spiritual and mental wellbeing. 


Another ancient belief was shared by herbalists, who used this stone to summon elemental beings or nature spirits to assist them in protecting their gardens from harmful energy and bringing health and abundance.  So, if you’re the proud owner of an indoor jungalow or army of plant babies, Fuchsite could be just the rock you’re looking for.


Recognising Fuchsite


Usually a very light green stone, Fuchsite can also be found in shades ranging from dark green to emerald.  Getting its verdant green hue from the chromium it contains, the more chromium it holds, the more vibrant and noticeable the green is.  Fuchsite crystallises in the form of masses, scales, layered plates, and even tiny tabular crystals.


Fuchsite has a hardness of 2.5 on the Mohs scale.
