Merlinite is the metaphysical name for Dendritic Opal.
Mineralogically, it is Opalized Agate with Dendritic growths of Manganese inside. ‘Dendrite’ comes from the Latin “Dendron” meaning ‘tree-like’.. and these inclusions are indeed reminiscent of roots or branches.
Spiritually, Merlinite is a force to be reckoned with. It is invaluable for shamanic work, past-life recall, channeling, and psychic development. Where there is Merlinite - there is synchronicity! The duality of this stone- the luminous expanse of white with sharp black markings- is a perfect metaphor for its ability to bring spirit world energy into the physical plane.
This special crystal is suspended from 18”, anti-tarnish Rose Gold plated chain.
These pendants have gone through a copper-plating process known as electroforming. It deposits a thick layer of copper onto the pendant - which also works to enhance the inherent energetic properties of the stone itself, as copper is an excellent conductor.
Copper has been worn for its healthful benefits for millennia; copper jewelry dates back to ancient Egyptian times. The absorption of micro minerals has proven helpful in joint stiffness, pain, and inflammation. It has antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus it's simply beautiful to wear!
I charge every crystal with healing reiki energy, and cleanse it with white sage prior to shipment. It arrives carefully packaged with a protective, hand-crafted blend of herbs and petals.
