What is adamite?

Adamite is a zinc arsenate mineral with a hardness of 3.5. Its crystal structure is orthorhombic, and it often occurs in radiated aggregates or fan-shaped rosettes. Most specimens are an inch or less in diameter. Adamite is usually a bright yellow-green color, but it can also be honey-yellow, brown, white, pale green, blue-green, or colorless. It forms in oxidized parts of ore veins, especially in arsenic-rich zinc deposits. Most of the finest pieces of adamite are from Mexico and Namibia.

Adamite as a Healing Crystal

Adamite enhances the alignment of the heart and solar plexus chakras, allowing synergy between your will and feelings. Such an alignment is particularly helpful in achieving your heart’s desires—the aspects of life you long for but which may seem impossible to realize. Adamite kindles the fires of optimism and determination, assisting you in taking on whatever challenges must be faced, making necessary leaps of insight, and persevering through difficulties.

When your will and your mind are working together without your heart, there can be a lack of enthusiasm—even depression—that pervades the psyche. When the heart is brought in—when you listen to its exhortations and follow them—you’re on the path of personal truth, one that knows neither discouragement, nor boredom, nor defeat.

Adamite can help to prevent psychic vampirism, since the frequency of joyful exuberance it creates is unpalatable to those who replenish themselves by feeding on the energy fields of others. It could be considered a protective stone because of its ability to sustain you in the face of negativity, but it is not a stone for building walls or keeping others out. Rather, it’s an ally that assists you in reaching and exuding a high-frequency, positive energy field that naturally transmutes negativity before it has the chance to penetrate your aura.

Spiritual adamite assists in connecting with the source of creativity and in helping you maintain a positive, loving energy field that is also strong and vibrant. It can be used in meditation to help you in creative problem-solving or bringing through new ideas. It is helpful in building your trust in the Divine’s ability to meet all of your needs, and in this way is a helpful stone to use in spiritual abundance work.

Adamite can also assist you in discovering your true passion or joy in life. Its ability to stimulate awareness of joy, to deepen creative connection, and to assist in realizing desires, all help in the recognition and manifestation of your spiritual path of service in the world. Emotional adamite helps you to move out of passive mode and into an active, dynamic, and expressive relationship with others and with the world around you. It can help you to remain playful, joyful, patient, and kind. It allows you to return to a state of child-like wisdom and relationship with all things, helping you to recover your senses of wonder, curiosity, creativity, and vitality. Adamite can help you to lighten up and move out of a state of worry-based paralysis.
