Geological Information

Tremolite is a mineral that belongs to the amphibole group.

It is typically found in metamorphic rocks such as marble and schist, and is commonly associated with other minerals such as actinolite and talc.

Tremolite crystals can be colourless, white, gray, green, or even brown, and are often elongated in shape.

They have a hardness of 5-6 on the Mohs scale, which means they are relatively hard minerals.

Historical Information

The mineral was first described in 1789 by Abraham Gottlob Werner and was named after the Tremola Valley in Switzerland where it was first discovered.

Tremolite has a number of industrial uses, including as a component in asbestos insulation.

However, due to its asbestos content, tremolite is now considered a health hazard and is no longer used in most industrial applications.

Metaphysical Information

These crystals are believed to bring a sense of calmness and relaxation to the user, making them ideal for meditation and stress relief.

They are also thought to help improve one's intuition and psychic abilities, as well as enhance spiritual awareness and connection to higher realms.

Tremolite crystals are commonly used to balance and align the chakras, especially the heart and third eye chakras.
