Dolomite

This stone soothes hurt, loneliness, and quells anxiety. Facilitates giving and receiving, generosity, spontaneity, creativity and an energy uplift. This stone encourages charitable actions.Since it is associated with the Chakra by its color, it also has the propensity to control energy leakage from the Chakra due to trauma. It is used for energy alignment, balance and energy blockage. The lesson this crystal teaches is that “everything happens for a reason“.  Dolomite is a common mineral. It is a calcium magnesium carbonate with a chemical composition of CaMg(CO3)2. It is the primary component of the sedimentary rock known as dolostone and the metamorphic rock known as dolomitic marble. Limestone that contains some dolomite is known as dolomitic limestone.

Red/Brown Dolomite

Since it is associated with the Chakra by its color, it also has the propensity to control energy leakage from the Chakra due to trauma. It is used for energy alignment, balance and energy blockage. The lesson this crystal teaches is that “everything happens for a reason“. This version is associated with the Root Chakra for grounding and protection. Use this stone as a motivator.

 

White Dolomite

Attuning to the Crown Chakra, this stone takes a higher stance with it’s pure energy and radiant light. This stone is an actual mixture of calcium carbonate muds that were altered by magnesium-rich water to form dolomite. This stone can sometimes have a glimmer to its porous surface, similar to calcite. This spiritual stone allows us to “let go and let God” helping us to connect to a power higher than us.

Sugar Dolomite

This sparkling, grainy glimmer of a stone combines dolomite, calcium and pyritePyrite is a very protective stone, shielding the user from negative energy of all kinds. Pyrite blocks energy leaks and mends auric tears, so along with dolomite, which also does the same thing, this makes this crystal twice as powerful!.  Used at the Crown Chakra on the top of the head and at the Root Chakra at the base of the feet.

For Creative Thought & Stability

This is one of my favorite stones for encouraging original thought, therefore, it is wonderful for inventors, writers, artists and those looking for creative spark.

On an emotional and spiritual level, it brings stability (due to its calcium content) and is a great stone to use to help soothes grief and sadness on every level.

Named after D. Gratet de Dolomieu, the French mineralogist, who discovered it in 1791, dolomite is mined in the mountain region of the Dolomites.  A great stone for boosting self esteem. It is a stone suited for Aries.

Mountain Meditation

This meditation exercise involves going into the very center of your being.

You are always welcome to use a tool for your meditation. A brown, black or dark blue candle can be lit.

Stones and crystals can be used such as basalt, ammonite, andesite, lava stone, limestone, dolomite, hematite, obsidian. Using any stone that comes deep from within the Earth, (volcanic stones, fossils, mountain stones, fault stones), will help you connect on an outer level. Crystals from deep within the earth that journey to the surface, have the same process as our inner thoughts, which manifest outward.

Cleansing & Charging Dolomite

~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.

~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy.  A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.

The Power of Color

Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you.  A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality.  It contributes in what attracts you to it.  The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
