Hackmanite is a rare variety of Sodalite that is notably high in sulphur, that was first discovered in Greenland in 1896, later named after Finnish geologist Victor Axel Hackman. It appears violet when initially mined, but rapidly changes to grey or greenish-white when exposed to sunlight, this changeability is referred to as tenebrescence. Hackmanite possesses the very rare ability to slowly return the violet color when stored in a dark place or exposed to Ultraviolet lighting; heat treatment destroys this effect. Some Hackmanite has the reverse color change.
This piece of Hackmanite is incredible with it's range of colors untouched, and then touched by fluorescent UV light and daylight. Leave your friends in awe when they see the incredible color change as if the rock itself were magic. A truly unique piece for any collection and a fantastic gift for anyone to gush over.
Hackmanite is known as the Chameleon Stone, for it's ability to change color, and the Stone of Eternal Belonging as it is thought to helpful to sufferers of anxiety, fear, and harassment. It is believed to enhance confidence, self-esteem, self-worth, happiness, while strengthening self-acceptance and forgiveness. It encourages us to embrace openness, let go of rigid mindsets, and live in full and complete expression. A supportive crystal that reminds us to stay authentic, and stand up for our beliefs without fear of judgement or criticism.
