About Stones: Mochi Marbles
Astrological Sign: Libra, Aquarius, Aries
Lore: Mochi marbles were sacred among the shamanic members of ancient tribes who used them for contact with the extra-terrestrial, for visioning, and for journeying. They have been found in archaeological excavations on several continents. Mochi marbles can be used to align the energy centers, to relieve energy blockages, to stimulate ch’i, to ground and center, to provide protection, and perform healing for the earth. Use in pairs is recommended.
Geology: Mochi Marbles are concretions of iron which consist of an outer shell of hematite (iron oxide) with a center of sandstone. They occur in the lower part of the Navajo Sandstone formation in southern Utah and northern Arizona. It is believed that the venting of hot volcanic gases caused the mochi marbles to form.
Localities: Utah, Arizona
