Larvikite is a black igneous rock made up entirely of feldspar (with small chemical composition changes) that crystallizes in the form of large masses. Within the feldspar itself, there are small silver-blueish shimmering crystals that give Larvikite it’s notoriety and fame. This eye catching “flash” is commonly referred to as the “Schiller Effect” and is believed to have been caused by Ternary Feldspar (a fancy name for feldspar that is rich in potassium, sodium, and calcium). Larvikite is believed to have formed over 298 million years ago, at an estimated depth of 18 miles below Earth’s surface (an astounding feat considering large deposits of this mineral are now breaching continental Norway).
Larvikite is a stone of inner transformation that helps one better adapt to change, as well as accept and understand any benefits that may come with it. Change is constant, with the world around us forever transitioning.
