Jeremejevite: One of the most rarest crystals on earth

Since moving to Arlington, TX, a DFW suburb, I stumbled upon this gem of a store. The owner, Trey, is super friendly and knows his stuff when it comes to gems and minerals. Trey does it all: he wire wraps, solders, cuts gems and minerals shaping them into cabs (cabachons for those of you who are not nerds like me) facets gems like emerald and diamonds. I'm so glad I found Trey and his shop which is right across the street from my apartment. 

Today I went over to Power of The Rainbow to pick out a moonstone for a commission. And maybe a couple of extras to wrap and sell. Trey and I got to talking about Phenakite and, yes, I'm gonna make some earrings, but he pulled out this little, tiny, almost microscopic piece that had a name so huge. This piece, he told me, would sell for about $300ish on the market. He was selling it for $50. Why? Because Trey is the type of person who, when he gets  good deal, he makes sure he passes that on to his customers. 

Anyway, Trey was kind enough to let me take a couple of photos of the Jeremejevite and blog about it. Who knows? One of you may want that $50 piece for your collection! 

What is Jeremejevite besides a super long name? Pronounced ye-REM-ay-ev-ite, (Yes I had trouble so I shortened it to J-vite), Jeremejevite  is a colorless, sky blue, or pale yellow stone. Jeremejevite is a rare aluminium borate mineral with variable fluoride and hydroxide ions. Its chemical formula is Al6B5O15(F,OH)3.The highest quality comes from Namibia. In nature it occurs in small obelisk-shaped crystals and has in the past been mistaken for Aquamarine. It was named after Russian mineralogist  Pavel Jeremejev, who discovered the mineral in 1883.

Jeremejevite has a high vibration and can be used to help manifest second-sight in order to provide the capability of "future telling". It helps to understand life and complete and follow through with decisions. Jeremejevite recognizes resolved courses of action is error free--in other words: no regrets for past mistakes. Move on.

Jeremejevite is used to dispel complexes (superiority, inferiority, etc) to lessen sorrow and stimulate insight to understand the conditions which produced the sorrow so one can eliminate regret. 

Jeremejevite is excellent in assisting one to progress through changes. It can be used to encourage orderly progression in the growth and maturity of the physical body and to eliminate disorganized cellular growth. 

Power of The Rainbow currently has three pieces of Jeremejevite for sale. They also have several Phenakite, Petallite, Moldavites, quartz, and an amazing variety of gemstones.
