Pegmatite is an igneous rock, formed underground, with interlocking crystals usually larger than 2.5 cm in size. Most pegmatites are found in sheets of rock (dikes and veins) near large masses of igneous rocks called batholiths.
The word pegmatite derives from Homeric Greek, πήγνυμι (pegnymi), which means “to bind together”, in reference to the intertwined crystals of quartz and feldspar in the texture known as graphic granite.
Most pegmatites are composed of quartz, feldspar and mica, having a similar silicic composition as granite. Rarer intermediate composition and mafic pegmatites containing amphibole, Ca-plagioclase feldspar, pyroxene, feldspathoids and other unusual minerals are known, found in recrystallized zones and apophyses associated with large layered intrusions.
Pegmatite, also known as "Unicorn Stone", is a very powerful but gentle crystal.
Nature seems to have its way of combining certain minerals together that are also energetically synergetic, as the soothing energies of Pink Tourmaline combined with the gentle transformative properties of Lepidolite, and the clearing and grounding effect of Smokey Quartz, all work together in a beautifully supportive way.
When it comes to Pegmatite's healing properties, many associate it with emotional healing, providing a sense of calm while encouraging empathy, both when it comes to yourself and to others. It is also well known to be a healer of aches and pains...
It is known as a stone of transformation and can assist in positive changes. Known to help eliminate stress and anxiety, Pegmatite can help us take a deep breath in to release pent-up fear, anxiety, and tension that we may be holding onto, and then keep moving forward with our heart open to what the world will bring us.
Pegmatite brings out potential energy and can wake up latent talents or skills. It will help you to perform your true abilities and help keep feelings of inadequacy away.
