Hanksite is a Potassium Sulphate mineral that is salty to the taste and can contain clay inclusions that became trapped while the crystal was forming. It grows into hexagonal shapes and is found in boron rich California salt lakes. They can dissolve when wet and should be kept dry and can glow yellow under UV light.
This piece is a beautiful grey colour. The white spider web-like pattern on one side of the piece is a wonderful addition to the piece. There is a variation of the greys, dome lighter and some darker, which makes the piece unique and extremely beautiful.
Hanksite is a stone that has an energy that mixes well with most users and handlers. It is unlikely to feel uneasy with this mineral. It is a chakra cleansing mineral while also a cleanser for other crystals, and also cleansing the physical and toxic environments around you. It is known as the "stone of truth" and can also help to stave those away from a head-in-the-clouds mentality.
