Epidote is a yellow-green to pistachio green crystal that ranges from transparent to nearly opaque. It has a glassy to resinous luster and may be found tumbled, as slender prisms, in fibrous clusters, or in masses. Occasionally, you will see a piece of epidote that is very dark green and may even appear black, easily mistaken for Black Tourmaline.

Epidote will enhance the energy of whatever it touches, including other stones.

Epidote increases perception and interaction with spiritual beings, and brings spiritual growth.

Epidote is a great stone for releasing negativity and raising one's vibrational energy. It is helpful for those stuck in modes of depression, hopelessness, or other negative thinking pattern. Epidote can inject a sense of hopeful optimism into one's emotional body, helping to bring the mind into a higher vibration. 

Crystal healers like to work with Epidote for its ability to clear congestion and energy blockages in the physical and subtle bodies. Epidote will help to balance and stabilize the energy flow in the body.  Epidote is also used to help dissipate tumors by releasing stagnant energies in the area.

Epidote is an excellent stone for attunement with nature and her healing qualities. It puts forth a simple, calming, grounding, “back to Earth” vibration, which is particularly good for those living in a high energy, city setting.

On a more physical level, Epidote’s ability to increase energy is useful in strengthening the physical body.  Epidote facilitates a more complete assimilation of nutrients. Epidote stimulates the immune system, aids in the healing process, and is a great stone to use for physical recovery. Epidote increases personal power, clears the emotional body aura, and even increases memory, making it a helpful when looking for lost object.

  lydia, There will come a time when this stone will fulfill its needs with you. It will find its way to someone else who needs it when that time arrive. It means you are healed or someone else needs it more than you.
Keep an eye out for symptoms of other spiritual growth. For instant I feel 3 times within a week. Just took a dive on the pavement. Once while running with no obstruction in my path another while climbing stairs. These are surely signs when they arrive in 3's the universe is attempting to get a message to me asap!! each time same knee gets a new knick, I attend to, new scab. Not a big deal the first 2 time just knicked knee. the last time and this time the same angle twisted about. The last and 3rd time making a sprain. I looked up sprain to get the crystals and moreover the spiritual reason for my growth in this area.. I got the message. The universe and our divineness is working with us constantly.

For those of us interested to heal or are healers or is the case for me. Search Patricia Cota Robles... google, you tube. I mediate always but when I recently found her through the universe introducing her by an email and I felt the need to open it.. as were all connected. It couldnt be more perfect. The violet light involke meditation healed my spirit body and human body. This coupled with crystals changed the energy around me to truth.  (Submitted by: Healer Healed on April 18, 2012)
