IMPORTANT: Please do not confuse this Grandidiosite Pendant, with the "Grandidiosite Zircon" that can be found online. Those are not real Grandidiesite Gemstone/Crystal but colored Zircon. Let me explain this a little more in detail because I think it is important for you to understand what you are buying and what is sold out there. In online markets you can see jewelry sold as "Grandidierite Zircon." This is how they advertise it, but that is not what they are selling. What they are selling is Colored "Zirconite" which is different than Zircon.
Cubic Zirconia (CZ) is one of the best-known, man-made diamond like created crystals. The difference here is that zircon is a naturally occurring mineral. Meaning this is a real mineral/crystal naturally created by Mother Earth. While Zirconia, even though it has been found in nature before, nowadays is a lab-created gemstone and is therefore, not natural and not considered a mineral.
Now that we know the difference between Zircon and Zirconite, let's add the Grandidiesite part. You can color a Zircon ( a real crystal) by heating it or irradiating it to create a color of a greenish hue. The Zirconite is lab created, already in the desired color. If you buy the Zircon choice, you will have a real crystal in a beautiful color. If you buy the Zirconite, you will have a man made "crystal" in a beautiful color. Neither one of these are real Grandidiesite Gemstone. Another way for you to differentiate what you are buying, is the price. The "Grandidiesite Zircon" is sold more expensive than the "Grandidiesite Zirconite" because at least one of them is a real mineral/crystal, so it will be of more value, than the man made Zirconite. Again, none of these two available choices are real Grandidiesite Gemstone which will have a much higher value and price tag.
Grandidierite was first discovered in 1902 in Madagascar by Alfred Lacroix, a French mineralogist. Lacroix named the mineral in honor of French explorer and naturalist Alfred Grandidier (1836–1912), the first authority on the natural history of Madagascar.
Since its initial discovery, samples of grandidierite have been found in only a few locations around the world, including Malawi, Namibia and Sri Lanka. But the few gem quality specimens have come mainly from Madagascar.
Grandidierite forms characteristic translucent bluish green or greenish blue elongated crystals. It has strong pleochroism: dark blue-green, colourless and dark green. Gemmy material is translucent to transparent. Fully transparent specimens are ultra rare. The opaque Material is less costly than the transparent Grade AAA gem quality and sells for lower prices, these still are extremely rare to find as well, specially on jewelry.
This rare and beautiful gemstone not just looks pretty and enchanting but like any other gem out there, it is believed to offer unique properties and thoughtful impact on your life.
Grandidierite connects to the heart and the throat chakras being the vital chakras. This stone resonates with the throat and heart chakras to improve honest communication and ensure that one speaks from the heart. It is often perceived as a stone that can cleanses your inner self from all the insignificant fear, anxiety and sadness. Grandidierite gemstone does wonders in removing all negativity.
