The meaning of this stones name comes in two parts with the first part astro coming from the Greek word “astron” that means star.
The second part of its name “phyllite”, comes from the Greek word “phyllom” meaning leaf and brilliant.
So together we see the meaning as “star leaf”, as the first people who found it noticed the way it exhibited this type of display within the stone.
astrophyllite typically forms as bladed, radiating stellate aggregates. It is this crystal habit that gives astrophyllite its name, from the Greek words astron meaning “star” and phyllon meaning “leaf”. Its great submetallic gleam and darkness contrast sharply with the light (felsic) matrix the mineral is regularly found within. Astrophyllite is usually opaque to translucent but may be transparent in thin specimens.
This stone is a stone of moving forward quickly on your life journey, and it may assist you to find your true path.

These are storm element stones, which means they have a strong element of transformation within them.
