Cerussite was among the first crystals I connected with when I first opened my awareness to the stone beings. It holds a special place in my heart. Cerussite helped me to connect to the part of myself that enabled me to receive this insight:
"I felt a wind blowing me to one side.
It was no ordinary wind.
It was not one thing but many.
It sparkled with light.
It whispered my name
but it was not my name.
It was the universal breath."

Cerussite Vibrates to the number 2 and is the astrological sign of Virgo. Its name comes from the Latin cerussa, meaning white lead, revealing to us the makeup of this stone. It also helps us to realize why this stone is so heavy. Cerussite crystals are not often seen in metaphysical circles, especially in their gemmy form. I invite you to experience the deeply grounding energy of a Cerussite crystal for yourself, and see what other gifts arise from that connection. They are an incredible stone being. NOTE: Given the lead content of this crystal please take precautions when handling them. They are not to be placed in your water if you are making an elixir and wash your hands afterwards.
Cerussite's great sparkle and intense lustre is due to its lead content. The lead is also the reason it is so heavy - one of the heaviest transparent minerals. It is 6-1/2 times as dense as water which is more than twice as much as most rocks and minerals (which average approx. 3 times the density of water). This mineral is a wonderful grounding stone and allows us to feel "comfortable" and "at home" any place. It is an excellent stone to take along when traveling. It allows us to easily adapt to situations and to change as is required. It enables us to realize that these changes are transient, helping us to be accommodating.
It helps us to understand responsibility and to help us find that within us which makes us able to keep our composure. It helps us to find the strength to manage the condition of our reality, relieving tension and anxiety, and allowing us to recognize that which we can and must change and that which we must release. Cerussite encourages growth in all areas of ones life. It can be used to help us with decision making and to bring variety in our life. It has been used to balance the left brain and the right brain, encouraging creativity in the intellect. It is excellent in both stimulating and enhancing communication; and is conducive to all aspects of correspondence. It also assists us in the art of complete listening. It can be used to lessen introversion, to provide tact to situations and to instill the art and beauty of cooperation. It is a good stone to use in ceremonies and group situations, promoting a bond between the participants. It is useful in helping one to recognize those who have been a part of ones past-lives. As an elixir, it is an excellent energizer and protector of house plants. It can also be used in the garden to help relieve infestations or in the home to protect against pests.
These are large beautifully formed Cerussite Crystals, many with gemmy areas. I don't know how to do justice in the description of their color, other than to say that they are a golden green tone with a metallic sheen. Some have reddish Barite (I believe) inclusions. They are approx. 1-1/4" to 2" each. I will listen for the one who is singing for you.
