Tiffany Stone Some History
A variety of names are used to refer to this beautiful stone, including Purple Bertrandite, Opal Fluorite, Purple Passion, Purple Opal, Beryllium Ore, Bertrandite and Tiffany Stone.
This stone comes only from Utah in the USA. In the past it was almost unobtainable, as it was produced only as a by-product of the mining of Bertrandite at a particular mine.
Tiffany Stone is a crystal with a sweet high vibration, that is also known as Bertrandite. You may find that when you first hold it, that it has a somewhat subtle vibration, that becomes more obvious after you have sat and made a connection with its energy.
It is helpful in a number of areas, particularly to aid you to develop your psychic abilities. It also connects to the heart and the higher heart or thymus chakra, bringing through beautiful loving feelings. Within the throat chakra it has an action that may help to aid communication, both in everyday and psychic communication. It has an excellent healing action in the body. By releasing blockages it is known to enhance and boost your sex life, which is why it also has another name Purple Passion!
Bit more history:
Tiffany Stone is extremely rare and valuable, found in only one place on earth, the Brush Wellman Beryllium Mine in the Topaz-Spor Mountains of Juab County in western Utah, USA. It was unearthed in the 1960’s with the discovery of Bertrandite, the principal mineral mined for its Beryllium content, though it contains less than 1%. Beryllium is a silver-gray metallic element, non-magnetic, stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum, used in the aerospace, telecommunications, information technology, defense, medical, and nuclear industries. Brush Wellman’s mine and refining plant, now called Materion Brush, is the sole source of processed Beryllium in the U.S. and the only known fully-integrated Beryllium company in the world. The extraction process involves crushing massive amounts of material which yield only 1 to 2 percent of Beryllium ore, and is the reason Tiffany Stone is so rare, and consequently expensive, as very few survive this extraction process.

At one time the remote Brush Wellman Mine was open to collectors, though it has been closed to the public for many years. The most beautiful specimens of Tiffany Stone are from what is referred to as “Old Stock” material and came from the miners bringing out pieces, or from people allowed to collect the rock off private land. There is very little “old stock” left, and as mine operations policies have tightened, there is precious little authentic Tiffany Stone being released from owners for sale today. While the new material may not be as stunning as “old stock” stones, it will not affect the metaphysical properties. Buyers should be aware of inexpensive imitations and choose reputable dealers who have no trouble disclosing the origin of the material they sell.[Hall II, 337][www.spiritrockshop.com][www.shopic.com]
