Mineral Family

Eudialyte is a Cyclosilicate mineral.  Silicates are minerals which contain the elements Silicon (a light gray shiny metal) and Oxygen (a colorless gas). Together, these two elements form a tetrahedron – a shape similar to a pyramid – with a Silicon atom in the center and Oxygen atoms at each of the four corners. These tetrahedra connect with other chemical structures, in six different ways, to form various minerals and rocks. There are six main groups of Silicate minerals. Eudialyte belongs to the Cyclosilicate group.

History of Eudialyte

Eudialyte is a relative new stone for the metaphysical community and as such is not included in any of the older lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers.  It’s name comes from the Greek, eu dialytos meaning “well decomposable” a reference to the fact that this mineral readily dissolves in acid.  Eudialyte was formally described in 1819 from a deposit in Greenland.  Other significant deposits were soon identified on the Kola Peninsula of Russia and on Mont Sainte-Hilaire in Quebec, Canada.  More recently, Eudialyte deposits have been found in Brazil, various countries in southern Africa, and in Arkansas, USA.

The Sami, the indigenous people of the Arctic Circle, whose territory includes the Kola Penninsula of Russia as well as northern Finland, Norway, and Sweden, have known about Eudialyte for many centuries.  To them, Eudialyte’s proper name is “Sami Blood”.  According to Sami folklore, once upon a time the Sami fought with Swedish soldiers and many of Sami were killed.  Their blood was scattered across the tundra were the battle took place.  This blood froze and formed the beautiful red stone.
