Crystal Meanings, Metaphysical & Healing Properties Lore of Cuprite
Keywords: Kundalini, Confidence
Cuprite is a red to brown mineral with high copper content. Metaphysical lore says that it is helpful for reducing worries about things one has no control over, awareness, teaching, and delivering spiritual messages.
Cuprite is associated with kundalini energy as well as opening the flow of the base (root) chakra, the solar plexus chakra, and balancing the heart and base chakras. As a root chakra stone, it is considered very grounding and stabilizing. It is associated in traditional and mystical lore with will power, security, confidence, sexuality, mortality, and masculine energy.
Mystically cuprite is used to recall and examine past life experiences. It has been historically said to help heal one’s relationship with their father.
Traditional folklore and crystal healing lore purport that cuprite is helpful for healing problems with the thymus, heart, blood metabolism (especially imbalances), muscle tissue, skeletal system, oxygenation of the blood, stamina, kidneys, menstrual cramps, certigo, water retention, vitamin absorption, addictions and alcoholism. Please note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information.
As I noted above, Cuprite contains copper, which though a necessarily micronutrient can cause copper toxicity in large amounts. I suggest using the indirect method if creating gem elixirs with this stone.
