What is Larvikite?
Larvikite is crystallized Feldspar. It achieves its unique shine—known as the Schiller Effect—due to flashes of silver and blue within the crystal’s black mass, caused by high amounts of potassium, sodium, and calcium. Although you may not immediately recognize it, you have almost certainly seen Larvikite before. It is extremely common in architecture and interior design, from the fronts of buildings to kitchen countertops. Larvikite was named fro the town where it was discovered in 1884, Larvik, Norway. Since then, Larvikite has been recognized as Norway’s national stone and a Global Heritage Stone Resource by the International Union of Geological Sciences. This highly prized crystal is a powerful agent of transformation.
Metaphysical Benefits of Larvikite
Larvikite carries a very introspective energy. It encourages you to look within and fully understand both your strengths and weaknesses. With this knowledge, you are better equipped to adapt to change, and you can also work to improve your own life from the inside out. Larvikite draws out your inner power, allowing you to take up your rightful space in the world without apologizing. It also encourages self-discipline. In your darkest moments, Larvikite’s distinctive shimmer provides a ray of hope and the motivation to keep going. This crystal acts like a weighted blanket, tamping down anxiety and stress.
Larvikite is a stone of practical positivity. Unlike the toxic “hustle culture” touted by influencers, who encourage you to completely ignore negativity and push through sadness, anxiety, and exhaustion for the sake of the grind, Larvikite invites you to look at both the negative and positive aspects of life. Then, this crystal’s deep wisdom shines a gentle light on the positive, showcasing how it outweighs but does not necessarily erase the negativity. Larvikite shows you a healthy, sustainable way to move forward with drive, optimism, and acceptance.
What is the Spiritual Significance of Larvikite?
Larvikite links together the Root, Solar Plexus, and Third Eye Chakras. This unique connection between your earthly, emotional, and spiritual selves allows you to approach every situation with confidence. Larvikite protects your aura while also grounding it. This crystal has a profound connection to both the planet and the divine realm. It unlocks a higher self that has a positive impact in both practical and spiritual ways. As you deepen your work with Larvikite, you will gain a deeper understanding of the universal plan and your place within it, revealing your true life path.
Larvikite resonates with the optimism and self-reliance of the Aquarius zodiac sign, as well as Cancer’s intuitive nature. In numerology, this crystal is associated with the knowledge and spirituality of the number 7.
How to Use Larvikite
Because it connects the earthy and spiritual realms, Larvikite is the perfect addition to any meditation practice. This crystal also makes an excellent worry stone, and it is a must-have if you suffer from anxiety. If you are going through a period of transition, keep Larvikite somewhere personal, like your bedroom or your pocket, to help you weather the changes. Larvikite is also a powerful ally for a self-improvement journey. Use its introspective energy to help you minimize your weaknesses, support your strengths, and become your best self.
To maintain Larvikite’s high vibrations, it should be cleared at least once a month. This spiritual stone responds very well to Reiki, meditation, and moonlight, but the My Dream Crystals blog has a wealth of other clearing and crystal care techniques for you to try.
