Andalusite

Andalusite is not a very well known gemstone and before the recent discoveries in Brazil and Sri Lanka it was rarely seen outside of a gemologist's collection.

Now everyone can enjoy the earthy autumnal hues of this clear and bright gemstone which can show various colors as it moves from one angle to another.

Andalusite Colors

The first thing you will think of when you see a fine cut Andalusite will be autumn (or fall depending where you come from). The shades of orange, yellow, brown, red and gold seem to have been taken directly from a New England picture postcard and the rustic, natural colors are warming and comforting.

As Andalusite gemstones are moved from one angle to another, they can appear to change color quite dramatically in a phenomenon called pleochroism.

Andalusite Species

Andalusite is a fairly straightforward aluminum silicate mineral which was misleadingly named since it was not first found in the Spanish province of Andalusia but much further north.

Its only real peculiarity for geologists is that it is a polymorph with two other gemstones - kyanite and sillimanite. Polymorph means that they share the same chemical make-up and ingredients but have a different crystal structure.

What are the spiritual benefits of Andalusite?

Andalusite has a limited profile for its spiritual powers but it has picked up the nickname of 'the Seeing Stone' for its help in self-reflection and understanding your true personality.

This gemstone's other strengths include:

  • Protection from Psychic Attack
  • Rational Thought
  • Avoiding Confrontation
  • Assists Scrying Sessions

See our detailed article on gemstone meaning and uses

Andalusite and the Chakras

Chakras are various energy centers situated around the body which can influence our physical and mental well-being. Each Chakra has a designated color and gemstones of a similar color can help unblock or realign a troubled Chakra.

Most Andalusite gemstones are found in earthy brown tones with hints of green and yellow. This can mean they are able to assist with a number of Chakras. I would say they are most beneficial to the Root Chakra but any Andalusite with strong orange tones can help with the Sacral Chakra and a more yellow stone will aid the Solar Plexus Chakra.

Andalusite Price

The color of your Andalusite gemstone will play a major part of its value but there are a couple of other factors to consider. Most Andalusite tend to be a greenish brown color but any stones which have flashes of orange, pink or red as they are turned from angle to angle will be very prized.

This switch of color is known as pleochroism and must be taken into consideration when being cut. A highly skilled cutter will be able show off Andalusite's amazing ability to switch from color to color and show two or three colors at the same time.

Carat Weight

Most Andalusite gemstones are quite small, with anything over a carat being quite rare and a clear specimen approaching five carats or more would be a very valuable gemstone indeed.

For this reason, larger Andalusite gemstones rise in price per carat quite quickly as soon as they get over 1 carat in weight. Gemstones less than a carat will be $20 - $100 per carat while those larger than a carat in weight will be $50 - $300 per carat.

Treatments

Andalusite is not known to be regularly enhanced by treatments other than the cutting and polishing into lovely gemstones.

Andalusite History

Andalusite does not have a particularly interesting history and does not feature in any famous jewelry collections. The only engaging story that I can find out about it is that famous French mineralogist, Jean-Claude Delametherie gave the newly-discovered gemstone its name because he thought it had been found in the Spanish province of Andalusia when in fact it was found in Guadalajara.

Mind you, imagine if he was better at geography - I would be writing about guadalajarite instead!

Where are Andalusite found?

Andalusite can still be found in Spain but most gemstone quality material is now mined in Brazil and Sri Lanka as well as a few sources in Australia, South Africa and the Inyo Mountains of California in the US.

What jewelry is Andalusite suitable for?

Andalusite is rated at 7.5 on Mohs hardness scale which makes it durable enough to be used in all types of jewelry, including daily wear items.

Andalusite is usually found in small carat sizes so bracelets and necklaces are a good idea as are multi-stone rings or brooches. The earthy colors have made them a favorite for men's jewelry designs.

I was looking for a gemstone called Sphene/Titanite and found it on GemSelect. They had many gems to choose from and had good prices. I received my order a little later than expected but given that it's coming from overseas I wasn't too worried. The 2 gems I received are beautiful. I have to say that I have no gem knowledge- I am a novice and I ordered the Sphene for healing purposes, so I am hoping they are real. I have no way of confirming if that is true. But they are beautiful!

I have found what I think is the best kept secret for buying stones, and I have to tell you about this gem stone site I found! There is a large selection of stones and crystals, and the best prices I have found for nuummite! They make it incredibly easy to find exactly what you are looking for by shape, size, cost, and clarity. I have already purchased two stones and I will be checking the site frequently from now on for everything and anything that I am hoping to find. They have individual pictures of every stone with different views so you absolutely know what you are buying.Honestly, I was hesitant to purchase something the first time BECAUSE the prices were so competitive and below anything I found elsewhere and because the stone was both being purchased online and from another country. I received the stone ahead of shipping schedule and when I received the package, it was in not one but two separate zip lock bags. One had the certificate of authenticity and details about the stone. The second had information about the stone itself. I was so impressed with the quality of the stone and that it was definitely the stone I picked out on their site, that I ordered another stone without hesitation. I will be using this site to purchase gifts for everyone I can think of! lol

this is my first experience with GemSelect so I can’t really comment on much more than the website & purchasing experience, which was great. there were a few stones I went to look at that didn’t really have descriptions about them (their properties or spiritual benefits for example) like some of the other stones & I thought that was interesting & I wondered why they didn’t. but all in all, the purchasing experience was easeful & I can’t wait to receive my gems & see if the quality is as beautyfull as they seem to be in the pictures.
