Sphalerite... weird name.
Sphalerite comes from the Greek word "sphaleros," meaning "deceiving" or "treacherous."
While this mineral isn't TRYING to lie to you, it can't help but fool many crystal lovers with its chameleon-like way of blending into the crystals surrounding it.
Forming alongside more popular crystals such as quartz, iron, and galena, smaller deposits of Sphalerite often get lost in the mix. On top of that, Sphalerite can be found mixed with the colors of orange, yellow, green, grey, white, purple, or black. This furthers the frustration of anyone trying to identify the mineral.
Cool... what does it do?
Have you ever wanted to be a witch?
Of course you have. Why am I even asking?
Sphalerite contains an abundance of magical energy perfect for the aspiring white witch. Drawing energy from the Earth and Fire elements, this stone helps transform auric fields into spaces of love and light. It enhances your vision, allowing you to see the world in a more defined and clearer light. The definitions of right and wrong are strengthened in your soul, and people with malicious intentions show up like blinking red lights on the radar screen of your mind.
Sphalerite transforms your space into a beautiful, white-light heaven to keep you feeling happy, loving, and light each and every day.
What if I'm a dark witch?
Not ready to walk into the white-light of Sphalerite?
Try using this crystal for a more practical use first. Sphalerite helps with your decision making, most prominently when deciding on your fitness and healthy-eating goals.
Place some Sphalerite in the kitchen. The next time that you feel yourself reaching for an unhealthy snack, try saying this to yourself;
"I am pure. My body is my vessel and I WANT to keep it a clean, well-functioning sanctuary."
Sphalerite teaches us that simply moving around the room, taking a walk, or stretching can be the difference between a healthy body and an unhealthy one.
