Origin of Name & Mythology: Named after Pollux, a figure from Greek mythology, brother of Castor, for its common association with "castorite" (petalite). The name was later changed to the current Pollucite.
Zeolites are known for their cleansing qualities, connection with Source, and ability to bring light into their immediate environment. Pollucite is no exception, but it tends to work internally, focussing first on the Heart and Upper Heart, then spreading in ever expanding circles, so moving upwards into the upper chest and shoulders, at the same time it is clearing and lighting up the Solar Plexus, until it eventually works its way down to the extremities (fingers and toes).
Pollucite is delightful, energising and uplifting, but may be too ‘busy’ for some to use for more than short periods at a time. Although the cleansing concentrates on the energy body, it also effects the physical, so clearing stagnation can also help clear tension or infection from the area.
