Direct from the source! I had the pleasure of meeting with the miners and owners of this amazing stone at the Tucson Gem shows this year. The stones in the Crystal Lion shop come directly from their mine to you! I had never before seen such LARGE Tiffany stone specimens (so much is simply cut into cabachons for jewelry), and I was able to learn so much about this incredible crystal from the miners! The owners of the mine take great pride in their stones, and cut and polish much of it themselves. I am pleased to find yet another source for ethically mined, fairly traded crystals in the gem and mineral world – something that is very important to us here at the Crystal Lion.
“Tiffany Stone,” also called Utah Opalized Fluorite, is only found in Utah, USA in the famous Thomas Range. A variety of minerals circulate in underground rivers and fuse together when they penetrate volcanic tuff layers. The minerals contained within this stone are agate, chalcedony, fluorite, quartz rhodonite, and opal. As such, this stone carries with it the metaphysical and healing properties of EACH of those stones, as well as its own unique energetic composition.
Tiffany stone varies dramatically in its aesthetic; depending on the amount of any of the minerals mentioned above, the stone may contain fluorite that ranges from pale blue to deep purple, some with a reddish tone, and have pockets of quartz crystals, hyalite opal or other minerals present.
Possibly one of the most amazing things about this unique North American mineral is the fact that it fluoresces a brilliant green under a short wave ultraviolet light!
Other names for this stone include Porcelanite Jasper, Purple Opal, Purple Passion, Bertrandite, Opal Fluorite, Beryllium Ore, Passion Stone and Ice Cream Stone (my personal favorite).
To the touch, Tiffany Stone’s luster is soft, “creamy” and waxy. It’s smooth in a light way. This is how it appears at first metaphysically as well; it’s a gentle stone that warms up to you slowly. But once it does…watch out! This beautiful purple and white crystal didn’t get its name “Passion Stone” for no reason. It opens the heart chakra and has been known to release blockages of the libido and enhance your sexual desire, and spice up your sex life.
Most interestingly, this is also a stone of high vibration, opening the crown chakra and enhancing psychic gifts. It resonates with all of the higher chakras, and while it has a sweet vibration and gentleness to it, it’s a powerful guide and ally for those wanting to expand these gifts. Stones with more obvious blue fluorite work on the throat chakra and enhance communication of all kinds. These stones help you address and put words to old fears or pain. The pieces with more purple fluorite are more focused on the higher chakras; these stones sharpen the mind, and help you put words to concepts that are otherwise wordless. Tiffany Stone helps you tap into your own inner intuition and helps you trust that guidance. This is a wonderful stone for someone going through a transition in life, needing emotional stability and strength. It’s a “clutter clearing” stone that helps you clear emotional clutter as well as physical. Keep it in an office or on a work desk if your business or work has plateaued and become stagnant. Use it in meditation to create a strong spiritual connection and to tap into your own inner wisdom.
You will receive ONE (1) Tiffany Stone tumble from the lot pictured. Each measures *approximately* 3/4 of an inch to 1 inch in length at the longest points.
Please make your Color/variety selection from the drop down menu.
Please note that EVERYTHING in this listing is ALL there is. I purchased *everything* my supplier had, and it goes incredibly fast. I don’t anticipate to be able to source more in the future as the miners have told me they likely won’t have it next year. I recognize these pieces are pricy for their size, but this is the most affordable size/weight/price Tiffany stone comes!
***PLEASE READ: This is a “group listing” and individual photos/selection of stones is not available for this listing. Please read descriptions and measurements carefully before ordering. Each and every tumble is painstakingly measured to be as close to the measurements given as possible! PLEASE allow for slight variations in each individual tumbled stone as these are natural items, created by the earth and tumbled smooth – and finally, understand that they are organic items and shapes may vary!
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. 🙂
