Merlinite’s mineral name is Indigo Gabbro. This mystical stone is a combination of manganese oxide with inclusions of both potassium and barium. This particular variety occurs in Cornwall in the United Kingdom. Associated by name, after the great wizard, Merlin, who was King Arthur’s legendary mentor, this stone is considered the Stone of Self-Mastery. It exhibits traits of duality: black and white, day and night, light and dark. Merlinite waves its wand of energy in order to communication with the Archetypal energies within nature itself, including the plant kingdom, mineral kingdom, animal spirits and the elemental allies, such as the fey folk, pixies, dryads and gnomes.
This stone encourages the world of dreams and dreaming, teaching us the fundamental of mysticism, past incarnations and recollections. Wonderful stone to use at Samhain, as it eloquently lifts the veil between the spiritual and the physical planes assisting in contacting souls who have passed over. It opens one’s energy field to its innate capacity to serve as a channel for manifestation. It has the ability, as a good mentor would, to teach us to influence outer elemental processes in order to help empower our lives.
