Arfvedsonite is a sodium amphibole mineral with composition: [Na][Na2][(Fe2+)4Fe3+][(OH)2|Si8O22]. It crystallizes in the monoclinic prismatic crystal system and typically occurs as greenish black to bluish grey fibrous to radiating or stellate prisms.
It is a rather rare mineral occurring in nepheline syenite intrusions and agpaitic (peralkaline) pegmatites and granites as the Golden Horn batholith in Okanogan County, Washington (type locality for zektzerite). Occurrences include Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, Canada; the Ilímaussaq complex in Southern Greenland; and in pegmatites of the Kola Peninsula, Russia. Its mineral association includes nepheline, albite, aegirine,riebeckite, katophorite and quartz
Arfvedsonite was discovered in 1823 and named for the Swedish chemist Johan August Arfwedson (1792–1841).
Arfvedsonite has many powerful attributes, and it is a stone that has the potential to produce amazing manifestation. It is a strong stone for spiritual growth, creating a clear path ahead. It helps you to re-organize and restructure your life, bringing extraordinary insights and a strong positive vibration. If you use it in meditation, it will help you to experience psychic visions that may assist you to predict the future.
