History

It’s a fairly common mineral first discovered in the early 1800’s and named in honour of the famed German mineralogist Johann Nepomuk von Fuchs

It takes its name from the Latin “viridis”, meaning “green”, for its specific colour. The peoples of southern Africa have long appreciated verdite because it comes from their homes and has been used for centuries in the form of amulets and ornamental stones. It is very well known in African works of art.

Appearance

Fuchsite, also known as Green Muscovite and Chrome Mica, is a crystal of the mica family. It crystallizes in the form of masses, scales, layered plates, and even tiny tabular crystals.

It’s green colour comes from the natural addition of Chromium to its genetic compound. It’s usually a very light green stone but it can also be found in a medium to dark green.

Which Crystals to Pair with?

If you want more power, love, or healing in your life, you can combine your Fuchsite with Herkimer Diamonds or Lepidolite.

However, Fuchsite is quite a laid back stone, so it works well with any kind of crystal in your collection. Because of this, please don’t feel too shy in sharing the energies of this stone with any other crystal in your collection.
