Vanadinite Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Vanadinite

Know where your crystals come from

This Vanadinite comes from a small family-owned mine in Morocco. The mining has a low environmental impact and is relatively safe for miners.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

This mine and lapidary is a family business in Morocco. The owner of the mine polishes some of his stock and leaves the rest rough. The business is also an exporter and sells exclusively at large gem shows.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries

I first met the owner of the mine and lapidary at the 2017 Tucson Gem Show. Most of his stones were rough, rather than polished, but what caught my eye was his beautifully polished Selenite which came in a variety of shapes and colors. I asked him to tell me about his business and he proudly told me that he had built the business up from nothing 20 years ago and his sons will inherit it when he is ready to retire. We talked together about the importance of buying directly from the miners rather than middlemen, whenever possible.

In 2022, he greeted me as “sister!” and when I asked him about a certain mineral, he only had larger pieces available. When I said I needed smaller sizes, he told me it would be no problem and grabbed a hammer. A few minutes later, I had the sizes I needed.

Vanadinite Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published June 2017  •  Updated July 2022  •  Read Time: 7 minutes
Vanadinite is a rare bright orange phosphate mineral.  It is sometimes mined as an ore for Vanadium, a metal used to strengthen steel, which is almost always found compounded in minerals, rather than free-forming.  The Vanadinite sold in the collector’s market is mined on a small-scale specifically for its beauty.  Because it is very soft and fragile, it is usually left in its natural state rather than being polished.  Vanadinite is closely associated with Freya, the Norse Goddess of love and beauty, which is usually depicted as having bright red hair. Vanadinite urges us to take action about the topics that matter most to us.  It is a wonderful stone for activists and dreamers. […]

Natural Vanadinite

What You’ll Receive: 1 Stone - 100% natural Vanadinite

Selection Process: The stone I select for you will be carefully chosen for its beauty and appeal. If combined with other stones, I always take time to choose stones that look and feel good together.

Polishing Method: Natural crystal, lightly cleaned and polished; there may be small areas where the brown matrix rock is still attached to the Vanadinite crystal. Each stone is unique and minor variations are what makes them beautiful.

Color: Brick red

    Such good stuff again visually and energetically. I feel your stuff significantly more than the average crystal. That vanandinite really stands out too. It is very uniquely what it is. Hard to exactly describe where it takes me, but its a place that clearly has this ominous kinda vitality to it. And it compliments the other 2 stones really well. Seems to be further activating of them in a way. Brings a certain kinda fire to the mix. Great synergy.
