Actinolite is a green or black crystal that is partially translucent to opaque. It has a glassy luster and its shape appears to resemble a blade. This crystal can be found within quartz, or in opaque, compact masses.

Actinolite is a shielding crystal. It can heal the subtle energy body, filling in gaps that can result from psychic attack, illness, stress and unwanted negativity.

It balances body, mind and spirit, enhancing higher awareness.

Actinolite can increase one’s self-esteem by getting rid of negative feelings, especially those of isolation that can hinder progress.

It makes us more in tune with nature and all of our surroundings. Actinolite makes us aware that we are all an important part of “All that is”.

Use Actinolite to connect with spirit guides.

Physically, Actinolite reduces stress; strengthens the immune system, especially after illness or trauma; aides in proper liver and kidney function.
