Mica Blades

For the overthinker.

When you need to take a long hard look at yourself or your situation, then Mica is the crystal you need. Reflecting your true inner self back to you. These beautiful Mica blades are the ideal tool for self-reflection.

Mica is a truly fascinating mineral and has been used by humans since prehistoric times. It was used to build Teotihuacan (Pyramid of the Sun) in Mexico before the Aztec civilization reigned, decorate water pots and in Ayurveda medicine in India, and was used as jewellery, mirrors and decoration in ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Chinese cultures. Its name comes from the Latin “mica” meaning a crumb, but it is thought to also be influenced by the word “micare,” meaning “to glitter.” Today it has many uses from creating pearlescence in car paint, balloons and lip gloss, to body glitter, radiation detectors and the Japanese Kodo incense burning ceremony.

Your heart always tells you the truth, even if you don’t want to hear it. Mica can be used to help you see a reflection of yourself and your situation, as in a mirror, with truth and honesty. Once you can see with clarity the things you need to adjust you can address those elements in order to heal and grow. As it is linked to visioning abilities it can open up your mystic powers to repel any bad energy heading your way. Healers use it to calm overthinking and rebalance the Heart Chakra.

Ideal for the overthinker or those needing some internal reflection. Works well on an alter or Crystal Grid. Each crystal comes with its own information and care scroll.

Average weight 70g & length 7cm

Description

Conscious Crystal Sourcing

At House of Formlab we always try to source our crystals in an ethically minded way. We only choose high-quality pieces and work with trusted and reputable suppliers who also take ethics in the crystal supply chain very seriously.

Many of our suppliers buy directly from the mines and they undertake regular site visits during buying trips to ensure working conditions and low impact environmental protections are as claimed. None of our suppliers knowingly buy from mines with any child labour, poor or dangerous working conditions. Certain countries are known for dubious practices and we avoid sourcing from those regions.

Often crystals are not what the miners are digging for. More often than not they are byproducts found alongside more valuable elements such as are used in our mobile phones and TVs. This makes supply chains complicated but where we can we avoid minerals and crystals known to come from this type of operation.

Certificates are often hard to come by. There is still no overarching governing body which certifies crystals in the same way as diamonds are now tracked and certified – mainly due to the difference in value. The more outcry there is, the more chance is idea will gain traction. So keep asking and campaigning for ethically sourced crystals and together we can change the crystal universe.

Buying crystals is a learning process. We will make mistakes, everyone does, but rest assured we are trying our best to make the right choices and provide you with the crystal you can be proud of.

With crystal infused love,

Madame Formtastica
