Apophyllite is a lesser-known gemstone. But it is a very popular stone for natural stone connoisseurs and people of the spiritual world. The reason is that this stone is very useful as an aid to meditation, and in ancient times it was said to be a “spiritual stone”.
It is said to come from the Greek word “apophylliso = easy to peel off like a leaf”. Apophyllite is a stone with a high water content, and it is thought to have been named because it loses water when heated and becomes fragile in the form of flakes.
The Japanese name “fisheye stone” was commonly called “Fish eye stone” because the surface of the stone resembles the eyes of a fish, so it seems that this was translated.
How does Apophyllite Look
There are various shades such as white, gray, pastel green, yellow, and pink, and colorless and transparent stones may look like crystals at first glance. In the case of quartz, the striations on the pillar surface (patterns like thin lines) run horizontally, but the apophyllite is characterized by running vertically. However, some stones are not clearly visible.
The shape can be columnar, cubic, or pointed pyramid.
It is produced in various places around the world, but especially Indian apophyllite is of high quality, and green apophyllite is especially popular.

Magical effects of Wearing Apophyllite:
The central suggestion as a gemstone is “synchronization and transmission”. It is a stone with the image of synchronizing and transmitting wave energy.
Apophyllite is a powerful supporter that connects the physical and spiritual worlds, and the physical and spiritual worlds, and is said to be extremely effective in incorporating information into the physical world.
It is said to support the journey under the potential while maintaining the consciousness of manifestation because it helps to enter the astral world as a so-called ghost body in the state of meditation and firmly supports the connection with the physical body.
And if you can access the so-called Akashic Records, it will also help to transfer the information obtained there to the physical world.
Probably because of these characteristics, it is used as a stone to help meditation and give spiritual power in India, and even today, apophyllite can be used for meditation and rituals.
It is also used as an aid to divination because it is said to help intuition and see the vision of the future.
In particular, apophyllite crystallized in the shape of a pyramid opens the third eye between the eyebrows and facilitates channeling.
Perhaps these implications are that apophyllite contains water, which makes it easier to transmit waves efficiently.
In addition, a scholar living in Pune, India, measured the wave motion of various minerals on the earth, and found that apophyllite emits the highest wave motion.
How to Cleanse the energy of Apophyllite:
Due to the nature of apophyllite, avoid purification with salt, water or sunlight.
The most recommended purification method is to burn the leaves of white sage and let the smoke lightly pass through the stones.
