Named after the Roman god of the sea, Neptunite is a translucent to opaque prismatic silicate crystal that is black, but may appear a deep red when in certain lighting.
Resonating with the sea and by association the Moon, Neptunite helps us by revealing our hidden potential. It increases psychic abilities and intuition so that we may become more sensitive to others, especially in group settings, either at work or home. It brings more cohesion to relationships in these settings. Neptunite may be especially helpful for parents of grown children to let go, be brave, and allow those children to live their own lives and manage their own problems.
Physically, Neptunite may help with issues associated with addictions (especially alcohol); gums, teeth and bones; vitamin and mineral absorption, and speed up healing of wounds.
