What is Prehnite?
First discovered in 1788 near the Cape of Good Hope, Prehnite is a beautiful green Silicate crystal that usually forms in large clusters and stalactites. It frequently develops Epidote inclusions, and it can also be found in yellow, white, and gray. There is even an extremely rare orange variety, although it only comes from South Africa’s N’chwaning mine, and the supply was completely exhausted by 2002. Prehnite owes its name to Colonel Hendrik von Prehn, a Dutch official who was the governor of the Netherlands’ Cape Colony in the 1780s. A powerful emotional healer, Prenhite helps you truly “listen to your heart.”
Metaphysical Benefits of Prehnite
Instead of viewing the world from a purely logical perspective, Prehnite encourages you to act from your heart. This crystal channels unconditional love, helping you be more compassionate to others—and to yourself. Prehnite unlocks your heart’s wisdom to reveal your true life path. It also uncovers people, habits, and situations that no longer serve you and assists in releasing past trauma. These constructive, balancing vibrations keep you calm and centered. Whenever you face a situation that you cannot change, Prehnite promotes acceptance. It reminds you that hard times come and go, but your heart’s loving energy will never be diminished. Secure in this knowledge, you can build your ideal life.
What is the Spiritual Significance of Prehnite?
Prehnite links your Solar Plexus and Heart Chakras. This connection fosters a strong sense of self-worth and self-love that allows you to achieve your dreams. Prehnite sustains you through periods of difficulty, supporting you with divine love and wisdom. It resonates strongly with universal energy and works across multiple dimensions. Prehnite is a powerful tool for meditation, psychic abilities, and ascension, and it facilitates loving communication on both the spiritual and earthly planes. This crystal’s lush green color energy harmonizes with nature, especially the fairy and Devic realms. Prehnite’s naturally-occurring combination with Epidote supercharges both stone’s heart healing properties; Epidote acts as an amplifier for Prehnite’s vibrations.
Prehnite is associated with the friendly, balanced Libra zodiac sign. In numerology, it resonates with the curiosity, adaptability, and freedom of the number 5.
How to Use Prehnite
Because it resonates so strongly with your Heart and Solar Plexus Chakras, Prehnite is especially effective when worn around the neck as a pendant. This crystal also reveals your life path, making it an excellent addition to manifestation rituals and abundance planning. If you feel lost or overwhelmed, simply hold a chunk of Prehnite and take a few deep breaths to access its calming, balancing vibrations. You can also use this crystal to guide you through some “spring cleaning,” decluttering both your physical and emotional spaces. When used in meditation, Prehnite aids in ascension and helps you receive divine wisdom. It enables divine communication and helps you access the fairy and Devic realms. Leave a piece of Prehnite under your pillow to assist in dream recall and interpretation. A stone of universal love, Prehnite brings people together in harmony and is an excellent addition to communal spaces like living rooms and offices.
Prehnite works very hard to channel unconditional love, and the effort behind its high frequencies requires frequent clearing. This crystal responds very well to Reiki and meditation, as well as burying in soil. For more information on crystal care, usage, and clearing, check out the My Dream Crystals blog!
