Phenakite's High Vibrations

Phenakite’s most notable feature is its vibration rate, amongst the highest of all crystals. This makes it especially suitable for working with the crown and third eye chakras. It is therefore recommended to be worn close to them to effectively remove associated blockages. 


Phenakite, also known as phenacite, is more rare than most within the world of minerals. Descended from the Greek word, phenkos, meaning deceiver, the name was bestowed as phenakite is easily mistaken for other minerals, including quartz and topaz. But there is a very simple way to determine phenakite from quartz. The striations of phenakite run up and down the crystal, while those of quartz run laterally.

The color of phenakite covers a range including white, greyish, yellow, pale rose, beige, and even colorless. Hardness is rated at 7.5 to 8. It is a neosilicate, possesses a hexagonal crystal structure, and consists of beryllium orthosilicate.

Phenakite Unites Two Atoms or Entities

Beryllium is a bivalent type of metal; it is this quality that allows it to unite with two different atoms. Due to phenakite being composed of almost half and half quartz and beryllium, it holds the ability to unify two entities quite effectively. This physical property is responsible for some of its most beneficial effects as noted below, such as bringing together spiritual soulmates.

Is it Safe to Use Phenakite in Healing Waters, Elixirs and Cocktails? 

Phenakite is unsuitable for use in healing elixirs made by soaking the crystals directly in water; this due to its beryllium content.
