Of course, we will cover the positive effects it could bestow on your overall health and well-being. You can also find here everything you need to know about this stone, including the proper ways to cleanse it and other healing crystals that go along with it. Let’s start.
The word “Eudialyte” comes from two Greek words, “eu” and “dialytos”, that when combined means “well decomposable”.
First described in 1819 in Greenland, Eudialyte got its name because it quickly dissolves in acid. A cyclosilicate mineral, it forms in alkaline igneous rocks, and has been used as a minor ore of zirconium.
Eudialyte is also a complex, unusual mineral, containing U, Pb, Nb, Ta, Zr, Hf, and rare earth elements. Synthesizing the crystal has been done in the past, but no known synthetic gems or crystals of Eudialyte are being sold in the market.
This red silicate mineral can generally be found in the northern hemisphere, particularly in the Kola Peninsula of Russia, the United States, Canada, and Greenland. However, eudialyte specimens are also mined in Brazil and other parts of the world. The mineral Eudialyte is also known by other names, including Almandine Spar, Eudialyte, Saami Blood, Eucolite, Ferrokentbrooksite, Eudyalite, and Mesodyalite.
Eudialyte is somewhat rare and is mainly used for industrial purposes.
However, the rarer gem quality eudialyte is also available but not in great quantities. If ever you get ahold of a Eudialyte mineral, it’s likely that you will receive a mineral collector quality of the stone rather than the garnet-like crystals you see elsewhere. Still, Eudialyte in any form is quite effective in crystal healing, and they are also a beauty to behold.

It then extends this love to everyone around the person and connects them to the loving energies of the Earth.

Eudialyte Uses and Benefits
Eudialyte can be used in various ways.
Polished and faceted Eudialyte are used as gemstones for all sorts of jewelry, including necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, and pendants. However, since these are rare, most of the Eudialyte available in the market are either cut into cabochons or raw mineral specimens. Either way, the healing properties of Eudialyte remain.
Is Eudialyte radioactive?
Eudialyte is a rare cyclosilicate mineral that contains cerium. Thus, it is a bit radioactive. However, very small specimens like cabochons and loose gemstones around 5 carats shouldn’t be a cause for concern. Its radioactivity level is neglible compared to other stones.
On the other hand, large specimens measuring up to around several thousand carats might expose you to some radioactivity. In this case, avoid being exposed to it for too long and don’t touch it with your bare skin.
As I’ve said, it’s not a cause for concern if you’re handling only small pieces of Eudialyte, like tiny cabochons or gems with it, most especially if they are encased. However, avoid placing them in elixirs and don’t drink water that has been in direct contact with Eudialyte.
Eudialyte is also known for being stimulating. Because it might increase your heart rate, we advise you to be careful in handling it, especially if you are new to healing with crystals.
Besides these hazards, eudialyte is generally safe to use for meditation, jewelry, and being placed around your home.
