Erythrite on Matrix

This specimen features bright magenta needle-like Erythrite crystals on the tan matrix rock. Width is 2.75 inches. Weighs 0.3 lbs. 

Erythrite or red cobalt is a secondary hydrated cobalt mineral that forms when cobalt ore deposits weather and oxidizes. The unique color of this mineral comes from the cobalt in the crystal structure and is the same hue as other cobalt bearing minerals such as cobaltoan calcite. Erythrite contains natural arsenic making it slightly toxic. 

Erythrite is a stone that helps the entire chakra column while assisting with energy flow throughout the body. The result of this total realignment is that it ultimately strengthens one's inner balance. This mineral helps identify areas that are in vital need of self healing rays.
Each piece is similar, though no item at Crystal Joys is exactly the same as every item uses a unique stone that is non-fabricated.  Every item at Crystal Joys is truly "one of a kind". Slight variations in color, size and bead shape exist.
