Cacoxenite is one of those rare ingredients that make something good even better. It manifests as beautiful inclusions within a host crystal, usually Amethyst or Quartz, and forms as radiated tufts or strands of yellow, gold or earthy brown. Its presence expands the properties already emanating from the host stone, and adds its own remarkable dimension of spiritual evolution and connection.
Known as a Stone of Ascension, Cacoxenite is believed to raise the spiritual awareness of the human race and to provide a loving and ethereal connection between all of the universe. It encourages a conscious awareness of the significance in random events to guide us on the right path, and in sensing the essence of the Creator in the beauty of nature and the kindness of people.
Cacoxentie within Amethyst is particularly regenerative, not only for reprogramming the body’s cells to continually renew themselves, but also for revitalizing the mind. The inclusion of Cacoxenite initiates a higher level of creativity, clearing the Third Eye and Crown Chakras of conventional thought and limitations, and bringing new, “never before thought of” ideas and innovations to humanity.
Within Quartz, Cacoxenite is more active, dynamic and instant than in Amethyst, and expands the consciousness to understand that one can connect to Spirit whenever there is a need or desire. Its vibration assists in aligning the Third Chakra with the spiritual, surrendering personal will to Divine Will, making it easier to receive the guidance and assistance needed to move forward on one’s life path.
Cacoxenite is an iron aluminum phosphate mineral associated with iron ores. Its name, ironically, comes from Greek terms meaning “bad” or “evil” and “guest” because the phosphorus content of Cacoxenite lessened the quality of iron smelted from the ore containing it. It was first described in 1825 for its occurrence in the Hrbek Mines of Bohemia in the Czech Republic, though it is found in several locations around the world. It most often forms as radiated tufts or fuzzy strands of gold, brown, yellow or brownish-yellow, but can appear as reddish-orange or greenish-yellow. It is also referred to as Cacoxene or Cacoxitite.
Cacoxenite is a popular and highly regarded “stone of ascension” used during countless planetary alignments and world meditations, and to heighten the effect of full or new moon rituals. Its high vibrational properties increase spiritual awareness on all levels and transfers healing energy to the Earth.
Cacoxenite is a mineral for bringing good to one’s life. It encourages one to see the positive, beneficial and constructive forces in all events and situations, and to use discretion based on wisdom and discernment.
Place Cacoxenite in Amethyst on the table at mealtimes and gatherings to encourage courtesy and avoid confrontations. In the workplace, it promotes the highest good in a company and deters unscrupulous tactics.
In body layouts and for daily wear, Cacoxenite attracts and grounds the highest spiritual Light. Combining a facetted Amethyst with a polished slice of Cacoxenite in Amethyst brings intensity and focus to the opening of the Crown Chakra and powerful psychic protection.
