This stone is not terribly well known or sourced. It was first discovered in the late 1800s and recent finds have been discovered in Mongolia. Healers only just seem to be working with it in our experience. It works by grouping mental stress and facilitating peace of mind. Hold and meditate with it, talk to it and connect with its energy. This is a good crystal to place near drinking water. Ilvaite connects to the Earth Star and base chakra for grounding. It calms anger and temper and cools emotions, thoughts and feelings. Its a great aide in calming hyper active tendencies, promoting relaxation and sleep.
