These Vesuvianite Cabochons come to us from India. They are polished smooth, making them nice to hold or wrap as jewelry. Vesuvianite is also known as Idocrase or Vasonite. Both names are used interchangeably. The Gemological Institute of America prefers Idocrase.

Idocrase is a fascinating mineral found originally on Mt Vesuvius, the famous volcano in Italy which erupted violently during the Roman Empire in 79 AD, and destroyed the city of Pompeii, burying it and all its inhabitants in ash. Hence this gem is sometimes known as Vesuvianite. Vesuvianite represents cooperative effort and as such, it is a wonderful stone to present to newlyweds, business associates, friends and acquaintances.

Vesuvianite can be useful when needing to clear negative and/or repetitive thought patterns from the mental and emotional bodies. Once these thought patterns have been cleared, the mental/emotional bodies will stabilize. Use Vesuvianite to remove/release pent up anger and fears. Calming Vesuvianite acts quickly, yet gently to help find balance when the emotions are in turmoil.

Vesuvianite helps to connect the Heart Chakra with the spiritual realms, accessing the higher self and its connection to Source, which is love. Physically, Vesuvianite strengthens teeth and bones; aides in nutrient absorption; alleviates skin ailments; may increase one’s sense of smell.
