GEOLOGICAL INFO

Cuprite is an important collector’s mineral and a minor ore of Copper. Cuprite is named for the Latin cuprum, “copper”, in allusion to its copper content. It can form as bright transparent red crystals, or as lustrous, submetallic opaque crystals.

Malachite is a green copper carbonate hydroxide mineral. It was one of the first ores used to produce copper metal, and was cited as early as 79CE by Pliny the Elder, who referred to the mineral as ‘Molochitus’. In 1661 the spelling was revised to ‘Malachite’ as it is known today.

Native Copper means pure copper that occurs naturally. Copper is one of the few metallic elements to form on its own, and although it is metal, it is not magnetic. It has hypoallergenic properties making it widely used in the jewellery industry. Copper also kills many bacteria on contact. It is the oldest metal used by humans, dating back to prehistoric times. In ancient times Copper was polished and used as mirrors. Lumps of copper were traded as currency in Rome, and in Egypt, they used copper to purify water and treat patients.

Cuprite

Cuprite is wonderfully grounding, opening the root chakra and connecting one to base, allowing life force energy to flow freely up through the energetic body. It is an excellent stone to use when working with Kundalini energy. Balancing and healing the root and sacral chakras, Cuprite alleviates fears linked to survival, control and having one’s basic needs met. Going deeper with this stone, one can access past lives and heal the threads of authority figure pain, hurt or mistrust, whether relating to father, spiritual guide, mentor or teacher. Providing comfort and assisting in the release of the innate fear of death or passing onto another energetic plane, Cuprite assists those with terminal illness or those struggling to ascend to higher spiritual dimensions. On a more practical level, it can assist those leaving home or emigrating, or even starting a new career. Cuprite is strongly linked with shamanic and earth power.
