Muscovite-Albite-122887Muscovite is a potassium aluminium silicate mineral with a monoclinic crystal system.  It forms in metamorphic rocks such as gneiss and schist, as well as igneous rocks like granite.

Muscovite has the ability to allow recognition of the flaws in humanity and at the same time stimulates unconditional love and acceptance.  It is a reflective stone, mirroring back and allowing you to recognise the characteristics you cannot accept in yourself. Muscovite then aids to the integration and transformation of these qualities.

The name muscovite comes from Muscovy-glass, a name given to the mineral in Elizabethan England due to its use in medieval Russia as a cheaper alternative to glass in windows. This usage became widely known in England during the sixteenth century with its first mention appearing in letters by George Turberville, the secretary of England’s ambassador to the Russian Tzar Ivan the Terrible, in 1568.muscovite

Muscovite, originally used for window glass, especially in sacred buildings, increases fast thinking and problem solving skills: use as a good luck charm for exams and interviews.  Keep Muscovite with study material when learning foreign languages or mastering technical material you are not familiar with.

Psychologically, Muscovite disperses insecurity, self-doubt and clumsiness.  Muscovite eliminates anger and nervous stress, to bring flexibility at all levels of being.  It assists in looking forward joyfully to the future and back to the past to appreciate all the lessons that have been learned. By allowing you to see yourself as others see you, Muscovite aids in changing the image presented to the outside world.  It supports during the exploration of painful feelings.
