First described in 1881, Dumortierite is named after its discoverer, French paleontolo-gist Eugene Dumortier. Its blue color is thought to come from titanium (Rutile). Found in Yuma County, Arizona as fibers embedded in Quartz points, Dumortierite makes an excellent past-life healing tool. Dumortierite is pleochroic and helps you see both sides of an issue.

This stone takes you back to when your soul journey began, connecting you to the innate wisdom of your eternal being. It helps you rescind vows that lie behind poverty, as well as sexual difficulties that arise from past lives of chastity. Dumortierite highlights where your previous soul purpose is no longer appropriate and lets you embrace the lessons your soul set for itself. It also helps you understand why you are encountering certain situations—out of karmic necessity or soul choice? By assisting in cutting ties from the past, it breaks a karmic cycle of dependency on emotions, people, or substances. Use Dumortierite to reprogram cellular memory to release compulsions.

Dumortierite helps you take hold of your destiny. It teaches that karma arises from every thought, word, and deed in the past or present. This stone helps transmute the past so you ascend beyond the vibration of karma into soul choice with right intention. If your vibrations are high and your intention pure, karma no longer has repercussions. But this gentle stone also lets you see why karmic repercussions bounced around for so many lifetimes. It reveals the soul gifts and insights that your higher self gained through such experiences.


Dumortierite works best at a subtle level to release psychosomatic and karmic causes of dis-ease but, placed over the abdomen or applied as crystal-infused water, it may ease nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and colic. Slip it under your pillow to aid insomnia. The stone enhances cellular memory and soothes hypersensitivity. Placed over the heart, it calms palpitations and anxiety attacks and, immersed in the bath, soothes sunburn. If you deal with trauma or distress on a daily basis, wear Dumortierite to assist you.


Practical Dumortierite brings order out of chaos. It reorganizes the body’s structure, reprograms your mind, or helps you to re-member your soul. With Dumortierite’s support, you gain unshakeable confidence in yourself and your abilities. It teaches that you are never a pawn or a victim, and places you in charge of your own destiny.



Placed on the soma or past life chakra, Dumortierite aids in exploring previous lifetimes to recognize results of actions, reconnect to karmic skills, and renegotiate contracts.
