What is Kimberlite

Kimberlite is an igneous rock, not a mineral or crystal, famous for containing small amounts of Diamonds, Olivine, Garnet, Ilmenite, Zircon, Spinel, and other precious stones. The presence of other stones in Kimberlite often gives it a mottled or spotted appearance. 

Also known as Diamond Host Rock and Diamond-Bearing Rock, Kimberlite may show blue, green, black, or gray hues. 

Kimberlites come from the depths of Earth’s mantle and form from small pockets of melting, capturing Diamonds under high-pressure conditions. 

In time, vertical Kimberlite eruptions or explosions, also called Kimberlite Pipes, transport Diamonds to the surface. After the volcanic material erodes, Kimberlite pipes are more exposed. 

Over time, Kimberlite turns into a yellow clay-like material called yellow ground from blue unweathered ones. While not all Kimberlites contain Diamonds, it’s a sign Diamonds may be present in the vicinity. 

There are three types of Kimberlites: 

  • Crater Facies Kimberlite contains fragmented Kimberlite and forms near the Earth’s surface.
  • Diatreme Facies Kimberlite comprises fragmented stones in the main body of the carrot-shaped Kimberlite Pipe under the previous variety. 
  • Hypabyssal Facies Kimberlite originates from the deepest parts of the Earth with larger crystals. 

Kimberlite Metaphysical Properties & Benefits

Typically, Kimberlite is found in black, gray, green, blue, and yellow, awakening the Root, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, and Third Eye Chakras. They are responsible for safety, luck, healing, self-confidence, and wisdom

But Kimberlite is found in several other colors, opening other chakras, like the Sacral, Crown, Earth Star, Lunar Star, Solar Star, Soul Star, and Stellar Gateway. This mix of primary and secondary chakras leads to power, psychic powers, courage, intuition, wealth, and cosmic consciousness.

Did you know Venus rules Kimberlite? It’s responsible for bringing love, romance, harmony, and healing. Hence, Kimberlite is good for people born under the Aries zodiac sign to find kindness, peace, and empathy.

The elements of Earth and Light rule Kimberlite, leading to stability, psychic protection, virility, strength, clarity, hope, and spiritual guidance. 

Due to its link to the Earth element, it’s ideal for feng shui benefits associated with directions such as Southwest, Center, and Northeast. 

Psychics and healers believe it’s ruled by the Greek Goddesses of Love and Earth – Aphrodite and Gaia, besides the Hindu Creator God, Brahma. 

In numerology, Kimberlite is associated with the number 5, representing freedom, virility, transformation, manifestation, and dreamwork.
