History & Origin:
Hiddenite is an incredibly rare green aluminium lithium silicate mineral & a member of the Spodumene family. It was named after William Earl Hidden, who discovered it in North Carolina in the year 1879. Hiddenite was once referred to as "lithia emerald," due to the vibrant emerald hue it sometimes produced. Coloured by chromium, this special stone can be found in only a few localities including Brazil, Madagascar, Burma, Afghanistan, Pakistan, &, of course, the United States, where the original mining location is now open to the public & known as The Emerald Hollow Mine in Hiddenite, North Carolina. Similar to its close relative Kunzite, Hiddenite is pleochroic & prone to fading in sunlight.
Hiddenite is a stone of thankfulness, generosity & harmony. Not only does it enhance feelings of acceptance, openness & love towards others, but also towards ourselves. Hiddenite asks us to make peace with the past & heal the wounds we continue to carry. It knocks down the walls around our hearts, opening our love up to the world & bringing true love into our lives. It reminds us of the happiness, joy & love we all deserve, helping us to take the steps forwards to a life filled with abundant positivity. This green gem allows us to consider the many ways our past relationships & experiences have helped us to grow. It allows us to find gratitude & blessings even in moments of heartbreak or disappointment. By helping us discover value in ourselves, & finding appreciation wherever we go, this magical stone acts as a magnet for what we deserve, freeing us of what no longer serves us & attracting only what does.
