Crystals – Merlinite


A Stone of Duality
Black and White… Light and Dark
Magic and Good Luck… and Dark Night of The Soul


Merlinite is a stone of duality… of black and white… and light and dark. This is a stone that attracts powerful magic and good luck into your life… and it may also take you to places where you make contact with the deeper, darker parts of yourself.

The vibration of this stone is very shamanistic… as it allows you to access the energy of the natural world and communicate with elementals.

It is said to conjure the memories of alchemists and wizards… such as the wizard Merlin from Arthurian times. It is a stone that stimulates deep intuition, psychic knowing and spiritual mediumship.

It a stone of harmony that aids the birth of creativity and clear psychic visions, and it will aid you to access higher spiritual energy… and to make contact with guides and teachers in the higher realms. But it is not only a stone for the light… as it may allow you to experience ‘dark night of the soul’ aspects of your higher-self.

This stone currently comes from only one mine in New Mexico. It is a variety of Dendritic Opal… and sometimes has an opalescent sheen.

It may contain a blend of white quartz, black dendritic inclusions and black Psilomelane… depending on the individual stone.

Merlinite is black and white… although its black color ranges from dark grey to bluish-black.

The black may be Psilomelane or Romanechite… or it may be Black Dendritic inclusions within the stone. These dendritic inclusions resemble a leafy plant… similar to a fern and are easy to spot. The Psilomelane is a black mineral that is a manganese oxide.

Please Note: This is not the same stone that they are calling Mystic Merlinite, and is a different stone altogether from the stone that I am talking about in this article.

Why Would You Use Merlinite

This beautiful stone has a vibration that helps to promote spiritual growth. It blends heavenly and earthly energy… and it helps you to remain open and approachable. It assists you to embrace things that happen, that are different to your normal way of living your life.

These stones are particularly useful to use to boost the energy of other stones of a lower vibration. Merlinite resonates strongly within the third eye chakra… and is known to stimulate psychic knowing, automatic writing and clear psychic visions or clairvoyance.”

It’s energy will allow you to access the spirit world… and it is known to aid the development of mediumistic abilities. These crystals encourage you to make contact with the spirit of those on the other side of the veil… to access the Akashic records, and to bring messages back for living relatives.

Merlinite is a strong spiritual stone with the vibration of duality. It will help you to balance the masculine and feminine energy within yourself… and to better understand the aspects of God and the Goddess. These stones are helpful to use to aid your spiritual growth… as they allow spirit teachers to come through to this plane to work with you.

How To Use It

This crystal was named after the wizard Merlin… because of its specific attributes to attract magical and mystical experiences into your life. Merlinite will allow you to take journeys to past lives in the times when Merlin and King Arthur lived.

If you sleep with one of these stones under your pillow… you may find that you have more restful sleep.

You may also experience vivid dreams of past lives… especially those you experienced in the Arthurian times.

This is a stone that aids travel out of the body… vision quests of a shamanistic nature. It may take you to specific location and to visit specific people there.

Note: You need to specifically direct your journey for it to be successful. If you wish to get you to where you want to go… simply hoping for the best will not make you succeed. It takes specific in-depth working with this stone for this type of journey to be successful. Make sure you keep psychic protection stones on you while you are doing this work.

How Will It Help You

Merlinite stones are dualistic in nature… and may take you on a journey to the deeper and darker aspects of yourself. As they help you to have a more approachable outlook… this may aid you to handle the experience… and learn to use the lower energies to balance yourself as you integrate them into total being.

The dark night of the soul experiences that this stone evokes may be vivid and quite graphic. Fortunately these stones will aid you to master yourself… and to remain objective.

Using the knowledge of both light and dark to bring total understanding of who you are, is the source of enlightenment.

They are powerful stones to aid investigation of past lives… and in particular will encourage you to experience old unhappy past life memories.

This is important as sometimes what you experience can show you images that may be negative and very disturbing. The quite amazing images that these stone has the potential to allow you to bring through… are not always easy to experience.

By keeping in mind the end result, and helping your higher self to let go of karmic situations… they are potent tools for learning more about your purpose in this life. Once you have cleared the accumulated negativity, use them regularly to keep yourself clear.

If they can be used with a positive frame of mind, they may allow you to clear negativity and rid yourself of deep past life problems and karma that you have been unable to release any other way.”
