HALITE

Astrological Signs of Cancer and Pisces 

Vibrates to the number 1

“Halite crystallizes in the form of masses, columnar structures, and cubic crystals (some with concave faces). The range of colour includes colourless and shades of yellow, red and blue.” The halite in this site’s shoppe is the pink type from deposits in California, USA. “These colours occur in the halite which is based by a pink-to-cranberry shaded Burkeite; the colouring is caused by a seaweed-type plant growth within the mineral.”

Pink calls to the fourth (heart) chakra, tuning the loving aspects of that multidimensional chakra. Halite transmits this feeling of emotional and universal love. As a shade of red infused with white, it also addresses the first (root or base) chakra concerns of security and grounding, while connecting with the white energy of higher self.

“Due to the solubility of Halite, do not prepare and elixir of this mineral via the normal method.”
“It can be used in the treatment of disorders of the colon and lower intestinal tract, for amelioration of water retention, and to augment strength during physical activities. A word of caution: it is recommended that halite is not placed on the abdominal area during pregnancy; it can, however, be placed upon the other portions of the body.”

MAGNETITE

Astrological Signs of Capricorn, Aquarius, and Virgo 

Vibrates to the number 4
Energy flows from North, South, Inner Earth, and along the magnetic fields.

“Magnetite crystallizes in the form of crusts, grains octahedral and rhombdodecahedral crystals, granular masses, and dendrites. It has also occurred within meteoritic structures. The colour range includes iron black, and pale brown. It is strongly magnetic and possesses polarity attributes in the form called Lodestone.”

Magnetite can bring alignment to spinal chakras, expanding then beyond the spinal case to all chakras, balancing them within the context of the present. If watched subtly, it can show where balance is maintained in awkward formations, such as when the body creates its own, if strained balance if the spine is miscurved, or a limb is misshaped or missing. Magnetite can then show us where to realign to find a less-strained sense of balance, through exercises, studies, thought-patterns, and such to address either the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual nature of the strained balance.

It can also assist one to find one’s place in physical space and mental constructs. By tapping the magnetic fields of Earth and other living souls, magnetite can show one the position one is in in relationship to the Earth and others. Interferrences can be revealed, as well as useful relationships.

“It can be used in the treatment of disorders of the bone structure, hair, skin, blood vessels, and the flesh. It has also been used in the treatment of nose bleeds. It can help one to ‘attract’ the healing energies necessary for recovery from disorders.”
