Erythrite (also known as Vivianite or Red Cobalt) is a stone of personal empowerment and self-confidence. It brings love and compassion into group affairs. This stone assists with communication and will provide answers to questions of any nature. It eases the flow of energy through the chakras. Erythrite will strengthen one’s core energy on all levels.
Erythrite’s name is derived from the Greek word for “red”, erythros.
While erythrite is not often sought after for financial gain, it is recognized by miners as a sign of more expensive minerals potentially forming nearby, such as native silver or associated cobalt stones.
Erythrite is a cobalt mineral. It is often colorless or pink-red in hue. This crystal is found in Mexico, Morocco, Australia, Poland, and Spain.
This stone is associated with the root and throat chakra.
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 overnight.
This stone is associated with Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn.
This stone is said to support healthy bone marrow and blood cells. It is also believed to aid in cell regeneration and treating skin disorders.
