"Mystic Merlinite is the name given to a unique mineral discovered in Madagascar. It has not been fully analyzed, but it appears to be constituted of quartz, feldspar and several trace minerals. Its color is a swirling blend of black, grey and white. The quartz component has a trigonal (hexagonal) crystal system and a hardness of 7 on the Moh scale. The feldspar component has a monoclinic crystal system and a hardness of 5 to 6 on the Moh Scale. These stones are plutonic, formed when molten magma is trapped beneath the Earth's surface and cools into a crystalline mass.
Mystic Merlinite can part the veils between the visible and invisible worlds, opening the doors to deeper intuitive abilities. It can facilitate opening the dormant areas of the mind. It increases sensitivity to the communications of the subtle realms, allowing one to "talk" with plant and animal spirits, and devic entities... The black and white mixture of Mystic Merlinite symbolizes the Light and Shadow sides of the self, both of which one must embrace in the moment of inner awakening." --Robert Simmons "Pocket Book of Stones"
