Metaphysical Properties-Sphene is said to be a mental body stone. It works to improve the mind and the processing of information. Use for studying, theorizing and debating. I feel it is a stone that promotes enlightenment; use during meditation and rituals. Being that Sphene is highly reflective and takes in much light, I feel it can also help us to reflect who we truly are and allows this light to shine brightly on everyone with whom you come into contact. Golden beaming light is what sphene is about! Allow its energy to surround your entire system.
