If you follow my shop here or on Instagram, you know how excited I get about new stones. If they’re rare or hard to find, I’m positively giddy! Each one brings a new voice, a new perspective, a new personality. And the more unusual it is, the more intrigued I am! But Garnierite may just take the cake. This unbelievable stone from Madagascar ranges from subtle, understated and a wee bit broody, to bright, bold neon and positively flashy! Garnierite is a form of green nickel ore and Feldspar (like Labradorite and Moonstone), and as such contains chatoyancy, which accounts for the gorgeous flashes you see from time to time. But that brilliant and vibrant mint green color is due to the presence of nickel in the stone.
*Please note: These stones are NOT blue. They have gray “base” and bright green/white nickel deposits. Think minty greens 🙂
There is absolutely NO stone in the world like Garnierite. It’s also incredibly hard to find (rare stones are a specialty of the Crystal Lion Shop!). My customers are some of the first people in the world (and just a few of them) to experience and work with this incredible stone.
As with all the stones in my shop, I strive to bring you the highest quality, these are the best of the best of the Garnierite available to me! Also know that I strive to bring you unique and rare stones; this means that I can’t guarantee always having a certain stone, like Garnierite, in stock at all times. I’m lucky to have found these incredible stones and hope you enjoy them!
Metaphysically speaking, Garnierite helps you find your truth, your calling, and connect you with your divine self. As a green stone, it is associated with the heart chakra, encouraging you to embrace love and compassion, for those around you and for yourself. This is a stone of empowerment, of embracing your true and your inner divinity. Finding truth is at the heart of all goals; physical, spiritual, mental and emotional. Garnierite is also associated with nature and the natural world; it encourages and empowers us to preserve it and defend it, and as such, it is a stone associated with Mother Earth, Gaia. As are other green stones, Garnierite is cleansing and clearing, and helps you rid your space, physically and otherwise, of energetic muck and yuck. Garnierite honors the most amazing parts of ourselves, the divine, the truth, the magnificent. It has a gentle, loving energy. Enjoy this incredible piece of Nature’s art!

All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered. 🙂
