Dumortierite belongs to the silicate class of minerals, and boasts a deep violet to blue colour. In rare cases this stone may also be found in pink and brown varieties. Dumortierite forms in prismatic crystals or a massive form, which will cause variations on the stone’s opaquancy, with crystals ringing to translucent or transparent, while the more common massive form is typically opaque. This may lead to it being misidentified as other stones, like sodalite or lapis lazuli. Dumortierite is named for the French paleontologist Eugene Dumortier, who discovered the stone in the Rhône-Alps of France in 1881.
Dumortierite may be used as a protective talisman for addicts, as it may highlight patterns that underline addictions and compulsions, and may assist in rewriting those urges. It may break a cycle of co-depndancy, and help care-givers realize that they cannot cure an addict or control the addictive behaviours of others. A stone of clarity, Dumortierite may also support those who feel mentally foggy, and may increase focus and concentration. Dumortierite may also ease energy blocks, allowing its holder to feel more energetic, and more themselves.
