Stone of Balance
Sphalerite is a primary ore of zinc but it may contain various impurity elements. The abundances of these elements are controlled by the conditions under which the sphalerite formed. The name sphalerite is derived from the Greek word sphaleros, meaning misleading, as it was considered hard to identify. When clear it is often used as a gemstone. New Age Therapists say is may be used to tell good from bad in difficult situations and make one able to discern reality from illusion or deception.
Zodiac: Gemini, Virgo
