Green Rhyolite Jasper Therapy StoneGreen Rhyolite Jasper Therapy Stone
The name rhyolite (from Greek "rhuax" for stream or flow plus "lithos" for stone) was introduced into geology in 1860 by the German traveler and geologist Ferdinand von Richthofen. Rhyolite is an igneous, volcanic rock. It is rich in silicon with a texture that can be glassy, fine grain or a mixture of crystal sizes. Natural rhyolite displays green, cream and occasional brown tones with patterns and inclusions. Because of its similar appearance, rhyolite has been confused with jasper, leading some to incorrectly label it as "rainforest jasper." Although not desirable for construction because it is highly fractured, rhyolite is sometimes used to produce crushed stone for aggregate and fill. It has also been used out of lack of better materials to make stone tools, such as scrapers, blades, and projectile points.
Perceived as a balancing stone, rhyolite is often recommended to increase self-esteem, self-worth while helping to bring resolution to issues. It is stone that is thought to facilitate change, variety and progress while helping to deal calmly with challenges. Rhyolite is believed to assist in fulfilling one's goals and making one's dreams come true, while strengthening the soul, body and mind. Rhyolite has strong associations with the Earth. And while it is not a birthstone, it is a zodiac stone of Gemini, Sagittarius and Aquarius.
