Vesuvianite was first discovered in 1795 and takes its name from Mount Vesuvius in Italy, where the gem was originally described. The stone is also known as idocrase, which is derived from the Greek words “mixed form” or “mixture”. This is because vesuvianite contains a mixture of other minerals.
This stone works well against depression and other negative feelings. When you use this stone, you can break free from the chains of the past that do not allow you to move forward in life. The stone can also help you overcome yourself and past wrong experiences and choices by accepting your own destiny and moving you further. If you sit at the bottom of a black hole filled with guilt and regret, you can use this stone to climb out of the darkness, on your way to the light by removing what is making you depressed. The stone can also enable you to find new, positive avenues you can take that you were not aware of before.
Vesuvianite is connected to the heart chakra. This stone is used to gently reduce pent-up anger and resentment, allowing a person to find balance in their emotions. The stone not only helps to equalize emotions, but it can also help us to think soberly by clearing negative or repetitive thoughts. If it has happened several times in your life that something has failed to achieve, the powers of the Vesuvianite can be used to awaken some new hope within the heart, so that you never give up and keep going until you get what you want to achieve.
