Astrophyllite facilitates self-reflection, helping us to examine the trigger or root of conflict with others from within ourselves, own our part and take responsibility, so we are able to resolve the issue, shift our consciousness and learn from the experience. It can help us become aware on misdirected energy flow in the body, and helps to redirect and balance the energy. Physically, astrophyllite works on a cellular level, strengthening cell structure and regulating cellular fluid, and supports nerve function.
When it is embedded in another stone, you can clearly see the radiating starburst pattern caused by “spears” of the mineral radiating out from a single point.
