Graphite Crystals Meanings and Properties
Graphite sometimes occurs as a coating or intergrowth on other minerals, such as prehnite and garnet. In addition to the qualities of that mineral, graphite adds another dimension of softness, balance, and flow. For example, a grounding crystal like almandine garnet will still be grounding, but will no longer be entirely focussed on the Root Chakra. Graphite’s qualities balance the chakra system and encourage flow throughout the entire body, and its softening and smoothing qualities can also make a crystal that might otherwise be overpowering easier to work with.
