Vanadinite is an uncommon mineral, usually only occurring as the result of chemical alterations to a pre-existing material. It is usually found in dry arid climates and generally associated with lead sulfide along with wulfenite, limonite and barite. It was first discovered in Mexico in 1801 and was first believed to be a variety of lead. It was then discovered again in 1830 in Europe and it was later confirmed the two discoveries were one and the same, eventually being named so due to its high vanadium content.

Vanadinite is wonderful for those reluctant to accept their physical self. It has a strong connection to the earth chakra and grounds the soul into the physical body. Vanadinite teaches how to conserve energy and opens internal pathways in the body to be open to universal energy, aligning the chakras and shutting out the minds chatter. It facilitates a state of “no mind” and can be used consciously or unconsciously. It fills the gaps between thought and intellect and combines rational thought with inner guidance. Vanadinite can be toxic, please use with care.
