Indigo Gabbro brings magic and luck into your life. Gabbro underpins much of the Earth’s surface and oceans and carries the properties of many minerals within its composition, including feldspar, chlorite, and serpentine.
This crystal is not generally well-known, making it an unusual addition to your collection. It has a coarse grain, readily accepts a polish, and can be found in a variety of colors, from black and white to deep green.
Indigo Gabbro is a volcanic stone, requiring heat and molten conditions to form. It is quite easy to carve and is most often used for jewelry or other ornamental artifacts.
Some specimens contain inclusions of mica which give them a subtle sparkle and add to their attractiveness as pieces of jewelry.
Metaphysical & Healing Properties
The alternative name for Indigo Gabbro is “Mystic Merlinite” and, as this name suggests, this crystal is believed to bring many metaphysical and spiritual benefits into your life. This stone is said to put you in touch with your Higher Self, bringing an increased awareness of any changes that you may need to make. It is also believed to support shamanic journeying, protecting both soul and body during astral travel and journeys into past lives.
This crystal is deeply attuned to the energies of the Earth and is both grounding and protective in its applications, especially during times of transition. It offers glimpses of both past and future and can be used to restore a sense of wholeness when used in meditation or chakra work. It is believed to gather up fragments of the soul that may have been lost or left behind and to integrate them into your present state.
Spiritually, Mystic Merlinite brings balance and harmony to the etheric body. It helps to counteract the effects of an excess in either Yin or Yang energy and highlights other complementary energies that may be out of tune with the body and spirit as a whole. For example, it helps to balance the intellect with our more intuitive side and to promote equal access to the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine. Mystic Merlinite is excellent for blending spiritual with earthly energies and can be used to ground a flighty temperament or to bring a sense of safety and security to anyone who is anxious or fearful.
Psychologically, this stone is believed to have a beneficial effect on psychosomatic illnesses. It is a powerful energy cleanser and can bring to the fore any past traumas or shocks that may be impacting your present situation. It then gently disperses any blocked or stagnant energy from the auric field and provides support as you do the psychological work needed to free yourself from the effects of past experiences, instances of abuse, or negative conditioning.
Mystic Merlinite is attuned to the Third Eye chakra and can be used to activate and open this chakra in meditation or other chakra work. When the Third Eye chakra is blocked, it can affect our overall health. This caused difficulty in concentrating or processing information. We can also find ourselves fearful of the unknown, disconnected from the Universe and the people around us, or overly critical and cynical.
When the Third Eye is in balance, it brings wisdom, insight, and intuition. This chakra is crucial to our ability to self-reflect and examine our motives, thoughts, and feelings. It allows us to understand the world intuitively and compassionately. It also stimulates our intellectual capabilities and helps us to integrate our creativity and intuition with our logical brains.
Mystic Merlinite is one of the quickest ways to open our psychic and metaphysical abilities. It is also believed to facilitate contact with elementals and the Devic kingdoms.
Mystic Merlinite Uses
Use this crystal in meditation to stimulate and activate the Third Eye chakra. It is also said to have protective qualities, especially against electromagnetic smog and pollution. It can be used to heal tears or holes in the aura and to enable us to come to terms with negative experiences, seeing them as useful lessons that will enhance our growth and development.
Crystal healers sometimes use Indigo Gabbro for “shadow work.” This entails delving into both your light and dark sides, allowing you to recognize that none of us are wholly bad or wholly good! Once you are ready to acknowledge your own shadow side, you are in the ideal position to make changes, accept yourself for who you are, and extend that understanding to those around you.
