History | Science

Arfedsonite was first discovered and named after the late Swedish chemist, Johan August Arfwedson. It is formed in Plutonic rock, which is igneous rock that has slowly solidified and crystallized underground from liquid magma. It is often called "firework stone" due to the green-blue flashes that radiate outward in a pattern reminiscent of an exploding firework. Similar to labradorite, these flashes are created by the way that light enters the stone and can be seen as the stone is viewed at different angles, especially in sunlight.
Arfvedsonite is found in very limited localities around the world such as Mount Saint Helen, Southern Greenland, South Africa, and only a few others, which makes it a fairly rare and sought-after mineral.

Metaphysical Properties

Much like the fireworks show that this "Fireworks Stone" mimics with its radiating flashes of blue and green, Arfvedsonite leaves the viewer with bright excitement, hope, and child-like optimism. And like other flashy stones, such as labradorite, Arfvedsonite is believed to help expand the consciousness and psychic abilities.
We personally like to call Arfedsonite the Star Trek stone, as between these two sets of characteristics, it's here to help you "boldly go where no man has gone before!"



Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
