This saffordite is a perfect, energetic treasure from the arizona desert. A nice sphere shaped saffordite, having a dark black surface with slight mineral stain from thousands of years in the desert soil.When you back light the saffordite, the interior is clear with no banding or shadows. Notice: the distinct yellow that is visible in the center of the stone in the photos is from the led light behind it. Not a color within the stone. The peace radiating from this beautiful saffordite is undeniably strong. Use it as a meditation stone or for a stunning piece of jewelry.
You will feel the calm from this cintamani as soon as you touch it. 28 mm x 25 mm.
There are differing opinions on the origin of these unusual black stones. Some believe they are weathered ancient obsidian, others believe they are tektites, or even pseudo-tektites. Much information is available to help you understand for yourself how unique saffordites really are. It is a mystery stone with its own amazing story, that we wish we could fully understand.Metaphysically, saffordites are said to be the most energetic gemstones yet discovered, even more powerful than moldavites. When paired with moldavites, the combination brings amazing power. Hunting these simple black stones has become a loving obsession for myself and my family. The peace of the desert and beautiful sunsets, bring us out hunting evening after evening. Even an encounter with angry rattlesnakes, hasn't changed that.
I just exhibit more caution as i do my saffordite dance (the sun is at your back, walking sideways or forward looking in your shadow) around the desert hoping to spot the velvet blackness of another cherished stone.
