★ Metaphysical Properties and Mystic Lore: Psilomelane facilitates trance states and enhances your awareness. It helps change outmoded patterns of thinking and redirects your energies. Psilomelane can assist you with self-analysis to reveal previously unrecognized thoughts and experiences. This in turn stimulates corrective action for emotional disturbances and over-emotional states. It can also be used to repair unwanted, unloving behavior patterns.

Merlinite both promotes our levels of contact with spirit and also aids our own spiritual growth. Merlinite is a stone of magic, conjuring the memories of wizards and alchemists. It is said to blend heavenly and earthly vibrations, allowing one access to multiple realms. It can be used to access the akashic records, to draw upon the powers of the elements, to enhance shamanic practices, and to bring magic into one’s life. Merlinite can help us to remain both open and approachable even though we may have suffered from bad experiences ourselves. It promotes better contact with our environment and with our fellow human beings too. Merlinite can also enhance our organizational capabilities. Merlinite has been used in the treatment of skeletal structures and disorders of the veins and arteries. Promotes physical growth and to facilitate the flow of blood through the body. It is a cleansing mineral for the body and one which can enhance lymph flow and excretion. It also helps with both the effects of colds and the effects of smoking too.

Psilomelane, especially when included with Quartz, is known as Merlinite. I have also seen just Psilomelane referred to as Black Merlinite. When Judy Hall talks about Merlinite in “The Crystal Bible 2” she states that Merlinite is also known as Psilomelane. This is different from Indigo Gabbro, which is trademarked by Robert Simmons as Mystic Merlinite. See the photo below for more examples of the different crystals known as “Merlinite.”
