Indochinite Crystals Meanings and Properties

Indochinite Crystals Meanings and Properties

Like all tektites, Indochinite is ungrounding, but its energy is less ethereal and far easier to work with than moldavite. It is also more business-like than irghizite (another black tektite), and not endowed with its softness of character. Tonally, it works primarily with the Sacral, Root and Earth Chakras, and may clear unwanted energy from that area, while it also affects the entire body and chakra system.
