The staff at my new age shop, Mimosa Books & Gifts, had this to share:

Healing Properties of Gaia StoneGaia Stone is just one of the names given to the gorgeous volcanic glass associated with the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption. It also goes by Green Obsidianite, Helenite, Emerald (or sometimes Ruby) Obsidianite, and Mt. Saint Helens Emerald.

The eruption itself produced no obsidian, but it was discovered afterwards in an interesting way: workers trying to salvage equipment buried in the blast noticed that the heat from their acetylene torches transformed the surrounding ash to brilliant glass — sometimes green, other times bright red.

While the Gaia Stone we see now is man-made, it’s colored by the same trace elements as the original: aluminum, iron, chromium, titanium and copper. Because this lucky find seemed like a gift from the Earth herself, it came to be known as Gaia Stone, after the ancient Greek Earth goddess. This connection helps us discover the stone’s heart-chakra properties of love and connection with Mother Earth.

Care and safety: Since this is a form of glass, it’s highly breakable.

    Hi! I know they are highly breakable but I was wondering what other care is good for a Gaia stone, can it be charged in the sun? Is it okay to go in salt? Water? Any advice is appreciated!

    1. Ashley Love and Light Support on April 6, 2021 at 3:14 pm

      Hi Katie! You could use Selenite to cleanse it, maybe invest in a Selenite plate or bowl and rest it there for at least 6 hours or overnight. And you can charge it in the moonlight or with sound therapy! 🙂 We have some very helpful blog posts on cleansing and charging so I highly recommending giving our blog a search to see if anything there resonates as well. <3 Sending crystal blessings!
