Icelandic spar, is a fascinating mineral with unique optical properties. It is formed through a process called sedimentation, where calcium-rich waters deposit calcite crystals over time. These crystals often form in limestone caves or as stalactites and stalagmites. Icelandic spar is transparent and colorless, allowing light to pass through it creating a double refraction effect. If your selection is transparent enough, it may be possible to view this effect by looking through the crystal towards an object behind it.
Metaphysically, Icelandic is associated with clarity and insight, helping to clear mental fog and enhance focus. The double refraction effect is said to symbolize the ability to see different perspectives and find balance in life. Icelandic spar is also considered a spiritual amplifier, enhancing one's connection to higher consciousness and aiding in meditation and spiritual practices.
