Phosphosiderite is a rare mineral named for its main components, phosphate and iron. The siderite at the end of phosphosiderite comes from "sideros", the Greek word for iron. It was discovered in 1890. It is mined in some parts of Chile, Argentina, Germany, Portugal, Quebec, and the United States. It exhibits a purple to reddish-violet red colour, sometimes green, usually yellow veined. Some stones are colorless, and some have hues of rose red, peachy pink, moss green, and brownish-yellow. It can also appear rose-colored or colorless in transmitted light.
The metaphysical properties of Phosphosiderite can be found in its ability to intensify spiritual growth, stimulate the inherent gifts of psychic abilities and bring about an awareness of life beyond our physical plane. Phosphosiderite is helpful in developing clairvoyance and be able to see the energy auras around all living things.
Phosphosiderite assists the higher consciousness and brings understanding that we connect to everything that exists in the Universe. It increases your ability to understand your life’s purpose and see the bigger picture, helping you to remain on track.
