Astraeus, a god in Greek mythology, is associated with the stars, celestial order, and the winds. Crystals are often used in spiritual practices for their ability to enhance intuition, connect with higher realms, and promote balance. This aligns with Astraeus' association with the winds, which bring about change and maintain cosmic balance. Crystals can be seen as tools for harnessing cosmic energy, aligning with the celestial order, and channeling the transformative power of Astraeus' realm. Crystals, with their inherent properties of clarity, energy, and vibrancy, can be metaphorically linked to the qualities associated with Astraeus. Just as crystals refract and reflect light, Astraeus represents the celestial order and the luminous beauty of the stars.
Astrophyllite is a rare crystal that is most commonly metallic shades of brown and gold in color. This glimmering crystal can form within both a light or dark-colored matrix and in combination with several other crystals as a Pegmatite.
