Apophyllite has a tetragonal crystal system. It is in the mineral class of phyllo or sheet silicates that contain water and are formed hydro-thermally. Since it has such a high water content, it conducts energy much more than many of the other sheet silicates.
Apophyllite colors range from a very bright clear white to pale yellow and a blue-green. The most common forms are the clear to white with beautiful pale aqua crystals interspersed.
Apophyllite is best used during meditation. Its small groups of crystals often appear to be plant-like making them pleasant to focus upon when used in its druzy form. When using it in the form of a larger crystal tip, it is quite beneficial to place on the throat OR the third eye chakra.
Apophyllite encourages a calm attitude, tranquility and honesty. It helps us to be open and show our true selves without hiding anything. It removes pretenses, reserves or a bad concience.

Apophyllite has only been known since the beginning of the nineteenth century so there is not much on how it had traditionally been used. In Mexico it has been used to aid those who perform fire walking.
