Idocrase is sometimes called Vesuvianite which comes from Mount Vesuvius in Italy where it was first discovered.
Idocrase is believed to stimulate inventiveness and a need to discover more about the world around you. This in turn helps to encourage creativity.
Idocrase is said to increase perceptivity and sensitivity to energy fields and to encourage the development of clairaudience, or the hearing of spirits. It is also thought to clear the mind of negative thought patterns, allowing it to function more clearly.
In physical healing Idocrase is believed to ease the digestive disease Diverticulosis and to help with the digestion of nutrients. It is also said to alleviate depression and to help restore a lost smell.
