Mica is widely distributed and occurs in igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary regimes. Large crystals of mica used for various applications are typically mined from granitic pegmatites. Mica grows by building up see-through paper-thin layers upon layers, which appear opaque but are in fact transparent. Mica is very metallic (containing very reactive element metals such as Potassium and Lithium, as well as Aluminium and Silica) and can be cold to touch. Mica occurs semi-translucent crystals, either flat angular blades, or rosettes or even hexagonal thin columns. The soft, shiny and reflective layers that make up Mica reflect the many layers of consciousness present within life. These layers are voluminous and ever-changing such as: victim consciousness, blame, inhumanity, ego, forgiveness, growth, joy, nature, fashions, desire, creation and love which all co-exist.
Mica provides us with reflective qualities so that we can recognise the flaws of our humanity while staying heart centred so that we can love what we see here. It helps us to see situations in complete detail, highlighting areas of the greatest importance.
Mica is a wonderful energy to use when looking at yourself as it allows us to see that what you see in others and label, is what you choose to see, this allows us to see ourselves in others and eliminate patterns we do not like and embrace the ones we do. The clearer our vision becomes the more unified we are as the veil of separation disintegrates.
Mica enhances flexibility in all situations, helping us eliminate anger, tantrums and nervous energy. It helps release energy blocks within the body and align the chakras. Mica can be used for clarity in visions.
The stones in the Mica family have the same healing abilities as mica but also have healing properties of their own.
