Fuchsite

Fuchsite is a sparkling green variety of Muscovite, with Chromium giving it the distinctive colour, the more Chromium present, the deeper the green. This green sparkle is what gives Green Aventurine the green glittering appearance. It was named after German mineralogist Johann Von Fuchs. Ruby crystals are sometimes found growing within Fuchsite, with a distinctive ring of Blue Kyanite around them. In Brazil, Fuchsite was considered to be a gift from the Pagan Sea Goddess Lemanja. Healers have traditionally associated this crystal with nature and energy, calling it the 'Healer Stone'.
