Dalmatian Stone – (Root & Sacral Chakra) – (Zodiac of Gemini & Virgo)
Dalmatian Stone is a gemstone I have been working with for years and have it as an integral part of my Crystal Healing toolkit. This is a stone with unique qualities that are vital when dealing with current professional pressures and expectations. Remember that “all work and no play” can leave us feeling unfulfilled and hollow. Find out the Dalmatian Stone spiritual properties and how you can benefit from their supportive and healing blessings!
Science of Dalmation Stone
Dalmatian Stone is most commonly called Dalmatian Jasper, but it is not a Jasper at all! This rock is a mixture of Feldspar (light parts) and Arfvedsonite (black parts). At Mohs 6, it is also softer than Jasper (Mohs 7). This stone is readily available and very affordable. It is often sold in a variety of colors, but just know (because of its softer and more porous nature) that all those various colors are DYED. There are no natural blue, pink or green Dalmatian stones.
Historical Significance of Dalmation Stone
Dalmatian Stone was discovered in Chihuahua, Mexico, and derived its name because the miners thought it resembled the spots on a Dalmatian dog. It has historically been used as a protection stone in necklaces, talisman and amulets.
Metaphysical Attributes of Dalmation Stone
Dalmatian Stone’s unique spiritual attribute is its ability to help us tap into our Inner Child and find time to Play! There are so many pressures on adults and often we drown in work, social and parenting responsibilities which leave us feeling tired and worn at the end of the day. Of course those responsibilities are important, but we must have time to recharge and recuperate. Dalmatian Stone help us find time to tap into the pleasures and fun in life. It encourages spontaneity and whimsy. This is an excellent stone to connect with your children and have time enjoying the world and playing together.
It is those same adult pressures that can leave us pondering, “What is the point of life anyway?” The Dalmatian Stone spiritual properties help us tap into what it truly means to be a human and why we have incarnated in this life. It helps us see past daily chores, bills, commutes to work, and grocery shopping to realize the wonder of experiencing human life. It allows us to take time to “smell the roses”, enjoy that cup of coffee in the morning, take a deep breath during a walk outside, and appreciate the present moment. Dalmatian Stone reminds us that connection, love, compassion, and gratitude will help us actualize the purpose of life.
Dalmatian Stone is also a very protective stone. The dark spots stimulate the protection qualities of the Root Chakra and its connection to Earth energy and support. It is especially protective of children. It helps them feel safe during difficult times, while facing fears, wards off nightmares, and helps them handle change. If your child is in need of some extra security during a challenging time, have them carry or wear Dalmatian Stone. It will also protect adults who are in therapy working through childhood issues and traumas. This stone allows adults to feel secure while exploring Inner Child energies.
Physical Healing Benefits of Dalmation Stone
The physical healing benefits of Honey Calcite is said to be elevating the mood and reducing nightmares.
Dalmation Stone Mantra Practice
Sit in a seated meditation position, holding the Dalmatian Stone in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine a bright orange flower blossoming in front of you and shining warm, uplifting energy over your entire body. It helps you feels safe and joyous. Repeat this mantra, “I am Secure. I am Playful. I am ready to Open Up to the Beauty and Joy in Life.”
