~ Self knowledge, out of body travel ~
Astrophyllite is a potassium, sodium, iron, manganese, titanium silicate with a hardness of 3.5. It is tan, brown, black and copper-colored with dramatic lines and starbursts of mica-like crystallizations.
Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources say Astrophyllite can aid one in travels beyond the body, achieving lucid dreaming, and expanding consciousness to higher realms. It is said to help reveal the hidden pattern of one's Divine blueprint, and to aid one in realizing one's life purpose. In so doing, it can help one release bad habits and addictions.
