Beautiful dark red brown colored natural Sphalerite on light gray colored drusy matrix from Elmwood Mine, Smith County, Tennessee. Sphalerite is an excellent stone for those seeking balance and energetic grounding. It is a stone of discrimination helping one distinguish between spiritual guidance and wishful thinking/fantasy. Sphalerite enhances mental clarity while aligning the astral body during the channeling of psychic information. Sphalerite stimulates the first three chakras and enhances one’s life force, courage, creative inspiration, greater success in manifestation, and clearer thinking. Sphalerite encourages one to take care of one’s physical body and the importance of maintaining a properly nourished and loved “temple of the soul.” Sphalerite is an excellent healing stone for those who are trying to break harmful habits or who are recovering from substance abuse. Sphalerite may be used to bring the yin/yang energies back into balance.
