The Crystal of Evolution

hideenite small - HiddeniteIntroduction to the Meaning and Uses of Hiddenite

In nurturing shades of green, from pale and soft to sunny emerald, Hiddenite encourages growth. It is a Crystal of Evolution, helping individuals to grow spiritually, emotionally, and to be aware of their collective responsibility for the care of the Earth. It supports new beginnings and focusing on the present, relinquishing injustices of the past or anxieties for the future. [Eason, 273][Hall, 165][Ahsian, 201]

Hiddenite is the yellow-green to green variety of the silicate, Spodumene, and is named for William Earl Hidden who discovered it in 1879 in Alexander County, North Carolina, USA. The town there was later renamed Hiddenite, for the mineral, and its mines are still active today. Hiddenite, also referred to as Green Kunzite or Lithia Emerald, has a glassy transparency, and forms in prismatic crystals in pegmatite veins. It is highly pleochroic, shifting in color from near colorless to pale green or yellow-green to emerald green. Though its perfect cleavage makes cutting difficult, it can be faceted into beautiful gems.

In addition to Hiddenite, the green Kunzite, Spodumene also forms naturally as colorless, pink, lilac, and yellow crystals. The transparent pink to violet variety is known as Kunzite (See the Kunzite page), while the colorless to light yellow variety is known as Triphane, or Spodumene. (See the Spodumene page.) Genuine Kunzites are quite pale in color, with natural darker shades being higher in value. There are some heat-enhanced varieties on the market. All Kunzite is prone to fading in direct sunlight.

Carrying Hiddenite awakens and attracts true love in the earthly sense as well as spiritual twin soul love. [Eason, 273] It provides a constant pulse of loving heart energy, and is a great gift to oneself and partner if love has gone stale in a relationship to help dissolve blockages in both hearts. [Simmons, 200]

Hiddenite is an excellent crystal for those who have difficulty expressing their emotions or in proclaiming their love. [Melody, 362]

Hiddenite is a wonderful stone for children, easing their emotional distress, and can be used as a healing stone to treat members of the family, friends, or pets, especially when conventional treatments are traumatic or not working. [Ahsian, 201][Eason, 273]

As a protective stone, Hiddenite dispels negativity, shielding the body’s aura from unwanted energies and mental influences, and dispelling attached entities. It also works in the environment to block geopathic stress. Wear as a pendant or tape to a cell phone or other electromagnetic devices. [Hall, 162-163]

Hiddenite helps in healing deep psychic wounds of the heart and is an excellent crystal for recovery from addictions and abuse. It is particularly comforting for those who have lost someone dear, whether through bereavement, moving far away or because of estrangement. It also assists in coping strategies when dealing with the loss of something central to your life, such as a home or job. Besides its healing properties, Hiddenite is a crystal of renewal, providing hope in difficult circumstances. [Ahsian, 201][Eason, 273]

physical healing - HiddeniteHiddenite Emotional Healing Energy

Hiddenite stirs the heart, helping to re-connect loving thoughts and communications, and helps return spontaneity and genuineness in relationships. It provides a gentle reminder of the initial delight one felt in the other and the joyous acceptance of that person exactly as he or she was. It encourages one to love with a whole heart, looking to the future without being worried over future outcomes. Through the feelings it generates within the self, it allows one to see that loving in and of itself, is its own reward. [Simmons, 200]

Hiddenite assists those who have difficulty in receiving due to feelings of unworthiness to overcome the misconception that financial wealth or possessions are the true measure of one’s worth. It reveals how truly precious one is to the Creator, and when one stops to receive the love of the Divine, the feelings of true abundance and overwhelming gratitude in that moment supersedes all other needs. Living focused on the gifts one is receiving each moment creates a more joyous life. [Ahsian, 201]

chakra balance - HiddeniteHiddenite Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy

Hiddenite, in shades of green, stimulates the Heart Chakra located near the center of the breastbone. It regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment. When the heart chakra is out of balance you may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and become critical of the little foibles of others. You may well find yourself having inappropriately strong emotional responses to everyday external stimuli.

Green crystal energy is used to resolve blockages and to re-balance the heart chakra, helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly. We can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes.
