Cassiterite Cluster

1st chakra.  This lustrous metallic crystal can be used for grounding and for protecting oneself from all physical danger, use when taking on challenging physical events such as sporting activities or when driving long distances.  Metallic minerals are very reflective, they can reflect to others our true thoughts and who we really are.  I feel Cassiterite is good in relationships for its 'mirroring' quality.  Reflect to others your essense or spirit today!
