This a favorite stone that I mine around central Nevada, near the town of Austin, other select pieces are from the Northeast USA and Argentina. Highly variable in banded colors of purple, teal blue with occasional yellow amberish hues. Cuts like butter & shapes quite well.
Healing properties; A highly protective stone that cleanses and stablilizes the aura. Grounds and integrates spiritual energies; heightens intuition. Enhances
learning; improves physical balance and
coordination. Rekindles libido.
