Shaman stone, lodolite, chlorite quartz or scenic quartz
Quartz with chlorite inclusions
Shaman stone is a clear quartz with inclusions of other minerals that usually come from the chloride group. Another name forshaman stone is lodolite or chlorite quartz. The still life that houses the quartz can take on a wide variety of colours and shapes. These are often reminiscent of an underwater world or a cloud field, but needles and mossy structures also occur. Really a stone with a rich scenery, its not surprisingly this stone is also called: scenic quartz, landscape quartz or garden quartz.
The inclusions have ended up in the quartz during the growth of the crystal. If at a certain moment there was not enough silica present to stimulate further growth of a crystal, it came to a standstill. Other minerals were given the opportunity to settle on it. And when the silica was released again, the growth of the quartz crystal was resumed and the strange mineral enclosed in the crystal structure.
Lodolite from Brazil
This lodolite was found in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The name lodolite comes from Spanish and means 'mud stone'. It is not clear whether this can be traced back to the inclusions of the quartz or to the environment in which the stone is found.
Shaman stone has besides his diverse appearance also been given very different names. The best known is Lodolite. Lodolite is the perfect stone for meditation and guidance on spiritual trances. In the house the stone provides a positive energy and brings the environment in harmony.
