This is the 5th pocket of this material to be mined in 100 years in the region. We hope you enjoy these crystals as much as we do.
These Phenakite crystals are very rare & come from Volodarsk , Ukraine. They are sometimes found with the Heliodors when mining. These crystals have been around for a 4 or 5 years, but very little is found. We have a direct link via our miner friend in Ukraine & are blessed to get the small parcels we do. They are fan like blade shapes, sometimes etched.
Phenakite (also spelled Phenacite) is a very scarce stone - one of the rarest crystals on earth. For over 15 yrs IVC has sourced the best crystals from around the world. Very little production occurs, with some "large" parcels only containing upwards of a few hundred grams at a time of good crystals depending on the location.
Phenakite is a very rare Beryllium Orthosilicate, Be2 SiO4 mineral composition found in high pressure pegmatite veins. Metaphysically It is said to be one of the highest vibrational stones. It is primarily associated with 6th & 7th Chakras - Third Eye & Crown.
