Biotite Properties

Biotite is a mineral that’s named after French physicist Jean Baptist who studied and researched about it for its optical properties.

It is also known as Black Mica.

It usually occurs in rust, golden brown, reddish brown, dark brown, and brown colors. It forms a lens shape when it becomes heated by the sun and outwardly expands.

Biotite is mostly found in various crystalline igneous rocks like pegmatite, peridotite, gabbro, diorite, and granite.

Biotite transforms to clay minerals and is not very resistant to weathering, which is why it can also be found in sandstones and sediments.

This mineral is very easy to identify. It has a perfect cleavage with a vitreous luster on the cleavage faces.

When Biotite is broken into thin sheets, it’s quite strong and flexible but will break if severely bent.

Biotite can be used in different commercial purposes as well. In ground form, it can be used as an extender or filler in paints and as an inert filler in rubber products.

Biotite is often mistaken for gold by inexperienced gold panners. When sunlight strikes small flakes of Biotite in a gold pan, it produces a brilliant bronze-colored reflection that looks very much like gold.

But when you poke the flakes with a pin, they will break. Biotite is mostly found in Russia, Canada, and Sicily, Italy.

Why Would You Use Biotite?

When combined with Angel Wing Alunite, Biotite resonates with your crown chakra. You can use this stone in a major way if you want to achieve mental clarity and have more organized thoughts.

The healing energies of this stone will help you maintain the best quality of your thoughts and the order of how you process new information.
