Larvikite Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Larvikite

Know where your crystals come from

This Larvikite comes from a mine near Larvik, Norway. It is an open pit mine that has a low environmental impact and is safe for miners.

This lapidary hand-polishes stones in Mumbai, India. It is a woman-owned and family-run business. Factory workers are paid fairly. The Lapidary is also an exporter that sells at gem shows in the United States and Japan.

I first met this source at the 2014 Tucson Gem Show. It was my first buying trip for my own store and I was nervous. Most lapidary owners were brisk and impatient with my questions, especially when I asked about the mines and the supply chains. But one man stood out to me as particularly patient and kind. He had been a wholeseller for over twenty years, yet he was happy to meet someone brand-new to the industry.

He took time to talk to me about the stones. They came from his home country of India and he was able to tell me exactly which state or territory each one came from and some of the conditions at the individual mines. When I told him that I wanted to source ethically, he said that it would be difficult, but that it was a worthwhile challenge. He made me feel like I could succeed, both at ethical sourcing and at being a business owner. I looked forward to a long business relationship with him. Sadly, he died suddenly in 2016.

I stayed in touch with his family and in 2017 met his wife, teenage daughter, and his father. This three-generation family has picked up the pieces and learned how to run the business. His wife had never worked before, but she gracefully stepped into her new role as a business owner. Her father-in-law offers practical and moral support, but makes sure that everyone knows that SHE is the boss and that checks should be written directly to her. The family continues to be supportive of my efforts to ethically source. More than any other lapidary, they are willing to speak openly with me about the difficult parts of the industry. They have invited me to visit them in India, to visit the mines and their lapidary. The daughter is now a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) Graduate and is interested in reiki and other healing modalities. As she has grown up, she has become increasingly concerned about ethical issues.

Larvikite Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published April 2020  •  Updated June 2022  •  Read Time: 6 minutes
Larvikite is an iridescent igneous rock found in Norway and in Ontario, Canada.  It is sometimes called “Blue Pearl Granite” and is often used to decorate the face of important buildings, such as corporate headquarters in busy metropolitan areas.  You may also have seen it used as fancy granite countertops in expensive kitchens.  Larvikite is one of the rare Global Heritage Stones recognized by the International Geological Conference for having an important impact on human culture.  It is closely related to Labradorite, another healing crystal with a fabulous iridescence.  It has a wonderful energy, both grounded and elevated which inspires wisdom.

    Plenty of flashy blue and silver in these, and as ever, Julie was a great help.

  2. Elyssa M. (Illinois)

    Super happy with my purchase and, the ruby kyanite is beautiful and heavy. This is my favorite shop!

  3. Valerie R (California)

    I am so happy to say that I got my *beautiful* crystals on Saturday!! Julie, they were so gorgeously packaged, I was in awe!! The care and attention you took was apparent and appreciated. You even put the info cards in alphabetical order!! The package was in my mailbox all morning with the sun out in full. I opened them around 11am, definitely time for them to get nice and warm. So when I opened everything, all the stones were warm to the touch and just felt so welcoming and comforting. I took a little video of them in my palm outside in the and they looked breathtaking!!!

    Beautiful and flashy larvikite! Julie always chooses the best crystals for me! Plus they are ethically sourced! Shipped quickly and well packed! Thank you!

  6. Jennifer S. (Colorado) (verified owner)

    The larkavite is very beautiful and reminds me of labradorite except it has a silvery blue flash. Thank you once again for the awesome crystals!

  7. Beth S. (Kentucky) (verified owner)

    The Larvikite is a fascinating stone, substantial and no-nonsense, yet glittery and shimmery with exuberant blue flashes from every angle. I think it doesn’t want much daydreaming, but with all this flash reality is anything but grim. It’ll be interesting to see what this stone has to say as Saturn retrogrades back to Capricorn but then goes for real into Aquarius.
