Owing to the fact that this stone could take anyone on a journey into the subconscious depths of the psyche and through the astral worlds of reality, Prehnite is known as a stone of forecasting, highly esteemed among the psychics, mediums and clairvoyants. This stone deserves full attention, even if you are not interested in fortune telling. Prehnite is a basic stone for visualization of any kind and as such, it enables a smooth transition into deeper meditative states.
The color of Prehnite is mostly green, yellow, or it can be transparent. Its unique shades are not likely to be seen in any other mineral.
The main locality of Prehnite is in South Africa. Some deposits are also found in Australia, India and the USA.
Prehnite is named after an 18th century Dutch colonel, Hendrik Von Prehn, who discovered it, and in fact is one of the first minerals to be named after a historical person.
Typically, Prehnite builds pretty tick crystals with coarse textures. However, Prehnite of exquisite gem quality has also been discovered. In composition, Prehnite is calcium aluminum silicate hydroxide.
Prehnite is also a crystal of memory and recollection. Capable of enhancing a person's protective field, it brings peace and calm. Even looking at the lovely color of Prehnite and touching its delicate surface may induce a feeling of peace and calm. In the past Prehnites have been used to increase the dream recall after awakening. In order to facilitate the process, before going to sleep you should take your Prehnite and ask it for help to induce and prolog your lucid dreams. Because of Phrenite's ability to vibrate very rapidly between the visible and invisible planes of existence, some Shamanistic traditions treat it as sacred stone.
Prehnite is one of the crystals that promote unconditional love. It is a stone especially tuned to the energies of Archangel Raphael who works on the Green Ray of light. This stone readily emphasizes the need of spiritual growth, personal evolution and alignment of our energies with the Divine.
Prehnite improves our intuition and brings the ability to recognize the truth in our everyday life. It helps us harmonize our will for action with our heart, so that our deeds are always coordinated with the highest and most noble goals of our true nature.
Prehnite is used in crystal therapy to strengthen the immune system and to improve the metabolism. It helps in cases of anemia and normalizes the blood cell count. Prehnite reduces the high blood pressure, balances the meridians, cures the kidneys and thymus gland, and helps the area of the shoulders, chest and lungs. It helps in prevention of atherosclerosis and reduces fatty the deposits in the body. For self-healing this crystal should be worn in contact with the skin, or alternatively it could be placed over the liver and spleen areas two times a day for 15 minutes. Prehnite is considered one of the crystals that can be used in diagnostics, to find the cause of the health problem.

How would I know if the pendant that I have is a Prehnite
Thanks for the question, Memory. First of all, I haven’t heard of somebody selling fake prehnites. That is not to say that there are none, however. Apart from the obvious tip — too perfect, clear specimen which would suggest simulant materials like glass— I should say that if you bought your pendant from a decent source, you should be fine.
Does wearing a pendant give the wearer the same benefits as a whole gemstone? I have many pendants with a Sterling silver "bracket" (meaning the stone is exposed front and back)and was curious......Thank you
Thanks Michelle for your question. It is generally accepted that the benefits are somewhat reduced with the pendant, ring or bracelet as compared to the raw, natural stone. The difference being, as you said yourself, not enough exposure, the stone might be pierced or glued, etc., you get the picture.
I found some beautiful Prehnite beads at Hardie's in Quartzite, AZ.
Thanks for the tip, ava. Here is the link to the yelp page of the store for anyone who wants to check their Prehnite beads.
Please put me on your emails up dated. Thank You. I've enjoyed what I have learned from your information.
Hi Jenice. You are on the list! Thanks for joining and for your kind feedback. I really appreciate it.
Have been trying to find out info on "rutilated" prehinite. I wondered what the rutiles are and if/how it enhances prehinite. Thanks.
Rutile is a type of mineral on its own. Its composition is Titanium dioxide, TiO2. The metaphysical action of Rutile in Prehnite is similar to what it does in Rutilated Quartz.
Extremely informative site! Thanks.
Thanks for the words of support, Carol. We really appreciated it.
Love your site and the information on the crystals.
I just bought a beautiful piece of prehnite yesterday. I wasn't looking for anything specific, but this piece drew me to it and I couldn't let it go. Now when I read its qualities and connection to Archangle Raphael and the Green Ray, I understand.
Please add me to your email list.
Thanks Peggy. We've added you to our mailing list.
Prehnite doesn't typically grow with rutile. Prehnite is much more likely to contain epidote.
Thanks for the clarification Harvey.
I'm new to crystals and I am finding them fascinating and encouraging. There is a shop in Pickering Ont. that has boundless varieties plus scads of useful information about all of this. You have explained things the same way they do consequently you have raised my trust and faith in what they tell me. Thanx so much.
Hi Iona. Thanks for taking the time to post your comment. Many crystal blessings!
We have some nice Prehnite gemstones up for sale check out our web. Breatheinthelifeforce.com
Can Prehnite be used to charge drinking water? Thank you
Prehnite contains aluminum. Although this aluminum is not in its free form, I would say that one should not put it in water. Just to be sure, don't use it for water charging by direct contact with water. Use the indirect method instead. Place the stone on the outside of your water container.
This information is so much help! I'm new to crystals and I just found out the pendant I have is prenhite with a few drops of epidote in it. So I'm trying to figure out how to cleanse it, charge it and how to use its power. How do I know or how I can feel when the prenhite vibrates? I got as a gift this past Christmas. I haven't worn it till now. I'm eager to learn so much more! Please help.
Welcome to the site. I encourage you to explore the world of crystals by following the resources on our site. The more you read about them, the more you'll understand how things work. The vibrations of your stones are not something you can feel with your physical senses. Instead, you can experience their metaphysical action if you are sensitive enough and if you can monitor your inner states of consciousness.
Hi. Sunny. This is me Rina. Can I cleanse and charge my crystals directly using water. Plus please add me to your mail side. I enjoy reading information from you.
