Larvikite is a black igneous rock made up entirely of feldspar (with small chemical composition changes) that crystallizes in the form of large masses. Within the feldspar itself, there are small silver-blueish shimmering crystals that give Larvikite it’s notoriety and fame. This eye catching “flash” is commonly referred to as the “Schiller Effect” and is believed to have been caused by Ternary Feldspar (a fancy name for feldspar that is rich in potassium, sodium, and calcium). Larvikite is believed to have formed over 298 million years ago, at an estimated depth of 18 miles below Earth’s surface (an astounding feat considering large deposits of this mineral are now breaching continental Norway). The name of this mineral comes from the local town of its original discovery; Larvik, Norway.
Larvikite is a stone of inner transformation that helps one better adapt to change, as well as accept and understand any benefits that may come with it. Larvikite helps one access their inner strength and enables their personal willpower to go on “auto-pilot”. This will assist one through any difficult process causing constant distress. One will not need to worry about the cost of any negativity that these new surroundings may bring with them, as Larvikite fully protects one's spiritual and physical body, including your auric field. We’ve found ourselves constantly referring to this mineral as the “worry stone”, as it is a neutralizer of one’s most powerful emotional reaction; anxiety. One will be able to live each moment without the burden of stress, while also dispelling any negative emotions that may build up throughout the day. Instead, Larvikite focuses on the positives around you and will help channel the good vibrations within.
