Astrophyllite Generator Tower
Astrophyllites name comes from a Greek word meaning “star leaf” as its formation looks like a leaf or a star although some also call it the firework stone.
It activates, opens and aligns all chakras whilst providing grounding and protection. Astrophyllite is also a stone of growth and moving forward on the path of your life. It will fill you with energy and motivation for change. As it is a stone that infuses your entire system with light, it can assist you to recognise your purpose in this world as it illuminates your true self.
Crystal towers, also called generators or points, bring strong, grounding energy that is different from the energy of crystal clusters.
Towers or points direct and focus energies out the termination point at the top so they help amplify energy and our intentions.
A crystal tower will uplift and purify the energy so you can place it in any area that needs to be re-energised with strong energy or on your altar or within any sacred space. Standing Crystal Points are good for gridding the corners of a room or your home and make excellent crystals for the central stone in any crystal grid.

Cleaning and Care
Astrophyllite is a very rare potassium, iron, titanium, manganese, sodium, silicate mineral, its name comes from a Greek word meaning “star leaf” as its formation looks like a leaf or a star although some also call it the firework stone as when the gemstone interacts with the light it looks like a myriad of fireworks shining in the night sky.
Astrophyllite was first found in 1844 by the Norwegian mineralogist Paul Christian Weibye. He described it as brown glimmer or brauner glimmer. Ten years later, it was named Astrophyllite by Carl Johan August Theodor Scheerer who described its properties.
Astrophyllite can be found in large masses of igneous rock and within pegmatite.
Astrophyllite looks very similar to the minerals Nuummite and Arfvedsonite. The colours are very similar, as all the crystals above offer metallic lustres of blues, oranges, and coppers. The best way to identify and differentiate Astrophyllite is to look for tiny striations throughout a dark brown or black matrix. Furthermore, due to the number of minerals within this stone, it is always heavier (and rarer) than Nuummite and Arfvedsonite.
