Crystals can be small and slender or as large as 12 inches (30cm) long and 4 inches (10cm) wide. It can range from being colorless to white, pale pink, gray, brownish and a straw yellow.

The original discovery of Danburite occured in Danbury, Connecticut in the US, but the exact location appears to have been lost. While a somewhat uncommon crystal, it is also found in Japan, several locations in New York state, Baja California, Switzerland, Bolivia, and Mexico.

Like most gemstones, Danburite is most beneficial when worn or laid upon the body. Danburite is especially effective when used on the Crown Chakra (top of your head) and on the 4th or Heart Chakra.

Danburite provides strength during turbulent times. Aids in bringing the aspects of enlightenment and love to realization. Provides awareness of the Void and Nonvoid.

Danburite can be used to treat ailments occurring in the gall bladder and liver. If a concious effort to direct it is made, it will help to add weight to the body. It also assists in removing toxins from the body.

Zodiac Affinity...

Danburite has a special affinity with Leo, has a Receptive Energy, it's Element is Wind and it's planet is Venus.

Folklore...

Occasionally, Danburite (but more common in Quartz) will show a "Buddha Crystal" configuration. This illusion can be found by looking through the main face of the crystal towards the top of the back. There would be a line in that area that resembles a throne and a figure in the likeness of a sitting Buddha.

If you are so blessed to find this configuration, it is used to bring aspects of enlightenment and love toward realization. It intensifies all the aspects of the Danburite and aids you in finding and easily traveling your chosen path. It can also act as a guide in physical, astral and spiritual travel.

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.
