Atacamite, a recently discovered stone, works willingly with the heart chakra, opening the chakra and helps to bring more unconditional love into your life. Sometimes confused with chrysocolla, it may share some of the same properties. This stone works forcefully with the third eye, opening this chakra and creating a strong spiritual connection and creating powerful visual images. This is a very safe crystal to use, and is a stone of great clarity. When used in meditation, atacamite safely helps to reach the highest possible levels. This stone helps restore lost spiritual trust and promotes a connection to your higher guidance by opening the higher heart.
Its name comes from its place of origin, the Atacama Desert in Chile.
Atacamite is a kind of copper mineral formed when other coppers oxidize. It can typically be found in a deep turquoise color. This crystal has been found in tandem with malachite and chrysocolla.
This stone is associated with all chakras.
You can place this stone in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth over night.
This stone is associated with Aquarius.
Atacamite is said to aid the functions of the immune system and thyroid. It can also promote new energy throughout the body.
