Astrophyllite is a particularly rare mineral that is found in Siberia and in a few other places such as Canada, Colorado and Norway. It has a brown to yellow color, rarely greenish. It has quite a low degree of hardness, from 3 to 3.5 on the Mohs scale. Its structure consists of radial acicular masses and beams (needle-shaped, long and narrow), which emanate metallic reflections, even iridescent. The name of the mineral, which was attributed by the ancient Greeks, derives from its appearance: Astron means “star” while Phillon means “leaf”. Astrophyllite is associated with the stars physically and because of its name. It allows you to see yourself from within and promotes astral travel. It helps you to understand that there are no limitations and to recognize what limits us and what should be eliminated. It awakens unknown forces, provides inspiration and capacity of expression. It supports you in accomplishing things that are unresolved. It helps you to feel happy and to appreciate what you have. On the physical side, it is said to eliminate deposits of fat and to act on the hormonal system. It makes your sense of touch more sensitive.
