The K2 Stone relates directly to symbols, images, dreams, vision or intuition. It offers the strength and resolve that comes from feeling harmonious and balanced in all aspects of our life.

Crystal System...

The K2 Stone is known as K2 Granite, K2 Jasper and/or Raindrop Azurite. It is found in the Skardu area of northern Pakistan on the K2 Mountain, also known as Mount Godwin Austen. K2 has a summit elevation of 8,611 meters and is the second-highest mountain in the world after Mount Everest at 8,848 meters. It is  is found near the base of the mountain in a very remote area.

When I had seen this one at gem shows, I had immediately thought that the round blue dots had been produced with a dye. I, like many others, had a hard time believing that it was actually Azurite since white granite and Azurite rarely occur together. So, I never chose to make a purchase. But, tests have now been completed and science has prevailed, it is a real occurance.

K2 is a bright white granite that contains sharply contrasting orbs of bright blue Azurite. The Azurite orbs can range from several millimeters up to centimeters in diameter. The white granite is very fine-grained and composed of Quartz, Sodium, Plagioclase (a feldspar), Muscovite, and Biotite. Since it is primarily Quartz, we are placing it in the trigonal crystal system in the mineral class of oxides. But to be clear, Azurite on its own is in the monoclinic system. So, I think there are parallel qualities that can apply to this one.


The K2 Stone is excellent for strengthening and deepening your meditation practice. While keeping me centered and grounded it also allowed me to soar to a new level of absolute bliss.


The K2 Stone assists in dissolving impediments and restraints in our spiritual growth process. In concentrating our thought on actually releasing the barriers in our path it seems to speed up the process of doing just that.


The K2 Stone helps people connect with each other at the emotional level. It seems to bring harmony by encouraging thoughtful communication at a personal level.


The K2 Stone can enhance our creative ability to eliminate indecision and worry that hides in the corners of our mind. In simply holding the thought to have those troublesome thoughts removed they seem to dissolve leaving us with a clear head, undistracted by earthly worries.


The K2 Stone physical healing properties are still being evaluated at this time. It does seem to help with circulatory disorders, eliminating toxins and helps to stimulate the synapses in our brains.

Zodiac Affinity...

The K2 Stone has a special affinity with Saggitarius but benefits all signs. Its Energy is Projective, its Planet is Earth, and its Element is Water. A great one for those involved in group projects.


Since the K2 Stone was only discovered recently there really is no folklore. I would suppose we could use Azurite's properties, but found like it appears in K2, there is just no documented history.

Hi there! I'm the owner of Howl at the Moon Gems. I have been infatuated with crystals and gems since I was a child when my maternal grandfather was my first teacher of the natural world. He taught me a lot of the old ways as to uses of herbs, purposes of tree woods, and gave me my first unofficial stone classes. A lot of time has passed since those early days ... and, while I have learned much, I am still learning.

Thanks for sharing! I have several K- 2 specimens and this is the most that I've heard about it.

What makes it K2 are the spots of Azurite. I suppose it still could be being that beads are smaller in size and may not show the spots. But, I would think one or two would show them.
