History: Ulexite (NaCaB5O6(OH)6•5(H2O)) (hydrated sodium calcium borate hydroxide) is a mineral occurring in silky white rounded crystalline masses or in parallel fibers. It was named after the German chemist Georg Ludwig Ulex (1811−1883) who first discovered it. This stone is composed of three borate tetrahedra and two borate triangular groups. It forms from the evaporation of water in intermittent playa lakes. The precipitated ulexite commonly forms a “cotton ball” tuft of acicular crystals. Ulexite is also found in a vein-like bedding habit composed of closely-packed fibrous crystals.

Energy Amplifier

This stone is so transparent that placing it over the ink of a newsletter can help to amplify its print. Nature’s magnifying glass.  This stone has an association with clairvoyance, telepathy and channeling. First, let go of any stress or problems you are currently dealing with. Detach from their power or outcome. Place ulexite to your Third Eye. Allow information to slowly come to you. Focus on the first things that come into your mind. Follow the path it leads you on. When you feel as if you have gleaned information or insight from the stone, set it down. Consider journaling about the images, visions or ideas that have come into your mind’s eye.

 

Cleansing & Charging Ulexite

~ 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.
