Ajoite is a copper silicate mineral, that occurs usually in Quartz. First discovered in Arizona by the Papago Indians, this highly prized crystal was valued as a bringer of peace and purity. In 1947 a deposit had been found at the Messina mine in South Africa, but it was not correctly identified until 1960 as Ajoite. The last discovery of Ajoite at the Messina mine was made in 1991 and now due to dangerous conditions in the mine, the mine is closed. To date there are no known new sources of this precious crystal and none likely to come onto the market.
Here is what the Crystal Oversoul Attunement cards say about Ajoite "We are vast beings of light that incarnate in part in human form. We have traveled many lifetimes and have experienced a multitude of experiences to be here at this time in the turning of human history. A new cycle has begun and each of us is here to help the earth’s transition into a new dimension.
Ajoite’s colouring and character reminds us of our ancient Lemurian light. For some, this is a painful memory as in subsequent lives after Lemuria this light was misunderstood and many were persecuted. This burdened memory has led to a reluctance to take on positions of power or responsibility.
By working with this crystal fears that inhibit the expression of our light in the world are finally healed. Our light can radiate again without attracting negative attention"
