Ulexite, Healing and Metaphysical Properties

What is Ulexite?

Ulexite... it has a neat name, and is commonly referred to as the "TV stone".  It can be clear, white, or somewhere in between. This stone is somewhat unusual in that there are naturally occurring fibers within it that conduct light fiber optically.

Metaphysical Properties

Its energies are suitable to program for assistance in connecting with spirit guides, angelic beings, those from other locations within our universe; and also our own higher self. Ulexite enhances creativity through boosting the imagination; as well this stone will allow you to clearly pick up life lessons and other messages that lie hidden within daily circumstance.

Like so many, you may be working to heighten your psychic awareness. Keeping a piece under your pillow when at sleep and on or close to your brow chakra during meditation sessions, will help you on your way. The energies within it have a strong clearing effect mentally, physically, and spiritually; and therefore it creates harmony between all three aspects of being. Its light transporting properties send the divine energy of light to where it needs to be.

When experiencing complexity or facing problems at work or in any area of life, ulexite holds the potential to guide you to find solutions. As well it promotes understanding, this as its energies transfer subliminal communications. When you can sense what someone is feeling, it's simpler for you to relate to them.

Healing Properties

As it works with the pineal and crown chakra centers, it provides healing to all conditions located in the head; this including eyesight and hearing problems, and it alleviates headache pain as well. When feeling fatigued, this stone bearing the properties of light can offer you an energy boost.

With Psychic Awareness

Like all "eye" or otherwise optical stones, such as hawk's eye and tiger's eye, ulexite can assist us to develop our psychic vision. This crystal type supports psychic vision over distance in two ways. First off, we can use it to see more distantly into time; and/or we can use it to more effectively conduct remote viewing sessions, which are often perceived over great distance by land or space. Here I will take the time to acknowledge that many remote viewing practitioners do not consider the skill to be psychic in nature.

More on its properties as a seer stone, is that it helps us to better read the energies of others and "see" the purposes they may have in mind for us. It is said to support the rest of the clair senses beyond that of clairvoyance as well. At times we need more insight into issues of self, and this stone can assist there too.

Optical Qualities

Articles describing the parallel between this mineral's properties and a TV are plentiful; the most common description goes like this: when placed upon printed matter, looking through it, the writing underneath appears to be at the surface of the stone, similar to the way that a TV screen presents an image.

But there is a different description for the TV-like phenomenon as well: this is a crystal type that is not see-through but from one angle. Place it on top of writing (or something else that's easily distinguishable); and when looking through it in the direction of the grain, you can see the text through this otherwise non-see-through stone.

Notice that with the second description, there's no mention of what you see appearing to be close to the surface. Now that doesn't seem so extraordinary, but on the other hand, a non-transparent stone is passing an image through, so maybe it is after all. TV-like? Who knows, it shows an image, that's TV-like, isn't it? This second explanation of its properties makes more sense to me though, as it's in line with my own experience. But with that said, I'd like to add that though I have a piece packed away somewhere, I did not test it to make sure that it was ulexite and not satin spar selenite, commonly sold in its place.

In 1991 it was presented in the Journal of Geological Education, that when you hold a piece of polished ulexite to your eye and look towards a source of light, you'll see concentric circles of light (G. Donald Garlick and W. Barclay Kamb).

Where is it Mined?

Ulexite is mined from a borax mine in Boron, California.

Care and Maintenance

Don't cleanse in water, as it will melt; this is what makes this mineral unsuitable to use as a gemstone.



This crystal type is relative to the pineal, or brow chakra, and secondarily the crown chakra. Due to it having primarily white or no coloring and a high vibration frequency, it relates to all chakras to some degree.


The properties of ulexite, generally speaking enhance intuitive and psychic awareness, and also promote wisdom, discretion and better judgement. As already touched upon, this stone will lead you to better understand others. And of course it works the other way around as well, others will better understand you when you carry some with you.

When working with such high energy stones, it's a good idea to use a grounding stone. Either of black tourmaline or black obsidian is recommended, as they offer strong psychic protection on top of grounding. Using protection is wise when making psychic connections, lest your own vibration not be suitably high enough to connect exclusively with light beings at any given time.

Oh, and if you want a piece of this mineral, do some research and know what you are buying; some say that satin spar gypsum is often sold as ulexite.
