Indigo Gabbro Meaning

Indigo Gabbro is also known as Mystic Merlinite. It's name is derived from the indigo-colored mineral inclusions that are found in the rock.

It is said to be a powerful stone for psychic development and spiritual growth.

Mystic Merlinite is a name based on the mystical and magical metaphysical properties that are associated with the stone.

What is Indigo Gabbro?

Indigo Gabbro, also known as Mystic Merlinite, is a type of igneous rock that is typically black or dark blue in color. It is formed when molten lava cools and solidifies.

Its vibrant flashes of indigo-blue color is caused by the presence of copper in the stone. Set against a mystical dark background, these flashes create an amazing and unique beauty that only nature could create. 

It is a beautiful stone that is found in only a few places around the world, primarily Madagascar.

It is a stone of higher intuition and awakening. Join us as we explore this magical stone together!

Formation & Geology

Gabbro is a coarse-grained, dark-colored igneous rock found deep within the earths crust. It is usually black or dark green to indigo in color. 

The cooling rate is much slower at deeper depths, so larger crystals have time to develop.

It usually contains a very small amount of quartz and it has coarse-grained crystals due to the cool slowing of the stone. 

Gabbro is the most abundant rock deep within the Ocean’s crust, and it is closely related to Basalt. However, Basalt is cools quickly and has very fine-grained crystals, making its texture much more smooth.

Indigo Gabbro is used as a gemstone and as an ornamental stone. It can also be cut into cabochons, beads, and other jewelry. 

It ranges in hardness from 6 to 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale.
