Historical Information

Phosphophyllite’s name derives from its chemical composition (phosphate) and the Greek word for "leaf", phyllon, a reference to its cleavage. This stone was discovered in 1920. The nickname of this stone is “holy grail of minerals”.
Phosphophyllite is an uncommon mineral found as a secondary mineral in granite pegmatites, as an alteration mineral after sphalerite and iron-manganese phosphates, and in hydrothermal vein deposits.
Phosphophyllite is among the rarest of gem-stones, and it is highly prized by collectors. The crystals, that are prismatic or having a thick, tabular habit, vary from colorless to deep bluish green, but the very best specimens really are a very delicate bluish green. Nevertheless, Phosphophyllite is rarely cut, since the material is brittle and fragile, and large crystals are extremely valuable to become split up.
Phosphophyllite and gems are among the hardest to obtain and most expensive.
The best crystals of Phosphophyllite, and the only real ones to become faceted, are from Bolivia. Other localities include Germany, Sweden,  the United States, Australia, and Zambia.

But specifically, Phosphophyllite will enable blocks to be seen in their proper perspective: why a person might have put those energies there, what the energy of a contextual shift that might be necessary to change things.
This elixir, Phosphophyllite, will be used by both the client and the healer in such work, because sometimes the healer will have new ideas, new patterns showing up about the client, that can be expressed or shared. Sometimes the client will be able to bring energies and ideas back to the healer.
