You may have heard of carborundum before. This mineral is often used in many manufacturing processes and home projects. This compound has been mass produced as a crystal and powder since the late 1800s. While it does occur naturally as the mineral moissanite, these lab grown specimens have a special flare to them that just draws you in. The first naturally occurring moissanite was discovered as a component of the Canyon Diablo Meteorite in Arizona, USA. This mineral is rare on Earth but extremely common in space as it is makes up a large percentage of stardust. How can you not want a specimen in your collection?
Carborundum is typically used to balance the chakras while maintaining a ground state. Many also use this crystal as a means of electromagnetic protection.
