Muscovite, also known as Muscovy Glass, is an aluminum potassium mineral and the most common member of the Mica family. It crystallizes in the form of small hexagonal or tabular “crisps”, as well as elongated sheets and solid masses. Muscovite is mainly found in a grey to silverish-brown color, but can also be seen as white, green, yellow, red, colorless, and most recently blue.The blue variety was found in 2004 by a group of miners in Yilgarn, Western Australia. It's the only time this color of Mica has ever been found and is frequently referred to as “Australian Lapis”. The majority of commercial grade Muscovite deposits come out of Brazil, but they can also be found in Italy, Afghanistan, India, Russia, and the United States.
Muscovite was officially discovered in 1850 by J.D. Dana, but has a history that goes all the way back to 1568 (where it was referred to as Muscovy Glass). It was mentioned in a letter by the English Ambassador to Russia where this mineral was first reported. Muscovite was found in the Muscovy Province of Russia and was named after the region. It’s main historical use during this time and up until the late 1700’s (in certain regions), was as the world’s first solid and transparent window. Many “sheets” of Muscovite in the original deposit were very long as well as thick and transparent. This allowed workers to split them and shave off extra layers, thus creating multiple sheets from one single piece. This led to a new trade material that was highly desired throughout northern Asia and eventually Europe. In present times, this mineral is still highly desired for many commercial uses. Muscovite is used in the production of rubber, paint, plastic, roofing materials, joint compound (Taping & Sheetrock), and most surprisingly, cosmetics. It's an essential ingredient in mascara, nail polish, eye shadow, and glitter.
Muscovite is a powerful energy magnifier and protector. It calls forth our own Highest Self, helping us to better trust our own judgement and decision-making skills. It increase our discernment, so we can recognize which people, places and activities support us, and which ones hold us back. Muscovite gives us courage to make difficult decisions, including purging toxic people from our lives. It protects us from direct psychic attacks as well as from more general negative energy. It helps us to detach any negative psychic cords that link us to others and to keep them from reattaching. Muscovite enhances telepathy, clairvoyance, astral travel, and helps us to be more receptive to the messages of our Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels. It also helps us feel more comfortable while spiritually awakening, so that we’re not overwhelmed by information downloads. It is recommended for earth healing grids, particularly along meridian lines.

One’s brain waves will be able to ascend and attune to the “energies of the gods” and reach higher dimensions with endless knowledge of yourself and the universe. This plane is where our guardian angels and spiritual advisors reside, studying our decision making in this multidimensional realm. One is able to communicate with these deities through deep meditation, as well as tapping into and channeling the energies of certain powerful stones.
