Fuchsite is a form of mica, a soft lamellar mineral that often forms in layered plates or clusters of plates, sometimes in association with other minerals including quartz, feldspar and albite. Its colour depends on the trace minerals within, and it may be pink or lilac (sometimes described as lepidolite or muscovite mica); clear, yellow, white or bronze (sometimes described as bronze or biotite mica); or sometimes in a combination of 2 or more colours (see individual sections). When coloured green with chromium it is known as fuchsite, which tends to be less regular in shape.
Fuchsite provides a sound heart centred foundation and resolute core from which we may explore inwards and outwards, having set appropriate and apt boundaries. It also helps us connect with the natural world and the Devic Kingdom. Fuchsite's Silver Ray element additionally elevates confidence and an overview that promotes problem solving, together with a strongly active and compelling energy. A new find of fuchsite has been tumbled, and this carries the Emerald Ray. These are bound to be excellent balancers, promoting and catalysing whatever shifts and changes are required to attain and embrace balance in all aspects of Life. Bear in mind that ‘balance’ is about understanding how to BE in equilibrium at all times, knowing that the balance has to be free to shift according to what is required and appropriate at that time!
Fuchsite may also be found in combination with other minerals, including kyanite, ruby, serpentine and other micas (see separate entries).
