• Youngite specimens •

Youngite is an agatized brecciated jasper with a grayish translucent druzy quartz usually around the outer part of the material. The drusy quartz usually fluoresces green. The jasper center varies in color from a light tan, to a pretty peach, brown, reddish, salmon and variations of these colors. The material is very hard and is used in making gemstones such as beads and cabochons. Rare. Youngite is a variety of quartz. Hardness 7.

The jasper center of this material is called brecciated due to its angular fragmentation. It is believed that due to a volcanic clastic shock the inner material became fragmented or broken into angular pieces and then silica/quartz cemented the fragmented pieces together.

Youngite is not well known by many and many books do not have the properties listed. This stone is excellent for anyone who seeks to stand up and have their voice heard.

It is a combination of jasper and drusy quartz. It has a rather gentle feel to it, almost like it is smiling at you.

Youngite is known for helping you access different planes of existence. This is why it is a very popular shaman stone. Many shaman and people who help to retrieve soul fragments use youngite to help them navigate the other planes of existence. It especially helps you with connecting to those aspects of you that broke of as a child. It can help you through meditation to bring those lost parts back or to help heal those areas so your lost parts will come back to you on their own.

Youngite is also great for healing mental stress that we all experience in everyday life.
